The federal government claims the debt is $14.3 trillion dollars, but other economists say the US debt is closer to $200 trillion (based on projected revenue and projected spending).  Either way, a $38 billion budget reduction makes no difference.  Especially when the federal government’s actual spending will decrease by a mere $352 million compared to last year- as reported by the National Journal:

“The astonishing result, according to CBO, is due to several factors: increases in spending included in the deal, especially at the Defense Department; decisions to draw over half of the savings from rescissions, which are funds previously authorized but not spent; cuts to reserve funds; and to mandatory-spending programs, such as certain farm subsidies.”

Here is a sample of some of the so-called budget cuts:

The DoD’s budget for 2010 was $685 billion, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to WikipediaObama called for a reduction in the DoD budget by $400 billion….over 12 years, which averages out to $33 billion a year. This cut is still pending a Pentagon review which leaves Obama with some wiggle room. Compare the money that the US spends on military industrial corporate welfare and illegal wars to China, with the second largest military expenditure, in the amount of $150 billion.

Who is the DoD’s real enemy?  It appears to be the American taxpayer and the US economy. More

* Congress missed its April 15 deadline to pass a budget
* And has the audacity to tell us it doesn’t have time to read the bills!

Please tell Congress to re-arrange its priorities and pass the Read the Bills Act.

You say you don’t have time to read the bills. But it’s funny what Congress DOES have time for. This year, the House found time to . . . More
