Obama’s administration plans to spend $3.8 Trillion in 2013 with revenue of only $2.9 Trillion. That’s right…our government will spend almost $1 Trillion more than it takes in…………AGAIN! It should be no surprise that despite sequester, the budget deficit for 2014 will be $.8 Trillion. Oh, boy, that sequester deal really worked, didn’t it!! The US National Debt is rapidly approaching $17 Trillion and nobody seems to care or be concerned. (Click on the National Debt Clock below to see how fast the debt is adding up.) Our representatives in Washington must think we are total idiots! Well, I guess we get what 52% of the voters wanted. And therein lies the problem! Remember only 50% of people pay federal income taxes!
Politicians will argue endlessly on the merits of various programs. They will argue about defense spending, welfare, social security, etc., etc. And while they argue, over the years various federal agencies have made their own rules for spending taxpayer dollars. Some are good and some are bad. Did you know that welfare recipients get free cell phones (and 250 minutes each month)? Free money is available through: unemployment for up to 99 weeks; Medicaid; medicare payments to people under 65; food stamps; support for children of unwed mothers; numerous educational grants; and so forth. The list of “free” money programs is very long.
We, as taxpayers, have been bamboozled by our leaders. And Obama’s overriding philosophy to ‘redistribute the wealth’ is a killer for any free enterprise system. When will it end? It will end with one of two results. Option one, the progressive liberals will be voted out! Or, two, America becomes the Greece of the Western Hemisphere? Option one will not happen any time soon because the 50 that pay no taxes and the masses that get “free” money from the government dole will not change their voting habits. So, one day, America will become just like Greece. When there no more “free” money, riots will take place in the streets. Wake up, Americans!!!
