Balance the budget starting at the White House
September 22, 2013
Too bad we can’t balance the budget starting at the White House!
JUST STOP FOR A MINUTE AND
REALLY PONDER ON THE FOLLOWING:
The Graph below illustrates the lifetime pay of our supposed elected representatives, including the president. The question is this: If both houses of congress do not agree to raise the debt ceiling to accommodate their never ending spending, should we not be considering suspending their pay until our economy is fully restored and the massive spending spree is stopped?
In every instance, the middle class, the poor, the elderly and our military are used as hostages to demand what ever the president or some political party decides it wants. The ransom of course, is Social Security checks, military pay, food stamps, fuel assistance and unemployment. Not one of these areas will affect any one of the individuals playing roulette with our lives.
Below is a graph showing the massive amount of money paid out annually to these ever so special people who have exempted themselves and many of their good wealthy friends from Obamacare. These same people who exempted themselves, also expect the American public to continue to pay for golden fleece luxury health insurance for them. As you know, they are far to special to have to participate in what will be a devastating attack on the general public and its healthcare. While this horrendous and economically devastating system is good enough for you, it is most certainly not adequate for them.
Maybe what we should be considering is the defunding of the government itself. Shutting down the government might work if we actually shut off the supply of money and turned off the lights.
