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:

1.  Department of Defense budget-

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

How Much Is Too Much To Spend On a Preemptive War?

 

 As of this third week in March 2008, the wars in the Mideast (Afghanistan and Iraq) have cost us $538.6 Billion.  That is $5,686 per U.S. family. Let’s see if we can wrap our minds around the numbers. 

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would buy ALL the fuel for ALL the commuters in Minnesota for 116 years and four months.  (At 12,000 miles per year, 20 mpg, $3.10 per gallon) 

·         $538.6 Billion dollars would pay a year of premiums on a $955 per month health insurance policy for EVERY uninsured person in the United States.  (46,995,000 as of August, 2007) 

·         At $250 Million per bridge, $538.6 Billion dollars would replace 2,154 bridges 

·         $538.6 Billion dollars is a LOT of money. My $5,686 could have been spent in many better ways. At the risk of sounding naïve, why don’t we just buy the oil, instead of trying to control it?
