Washington gets $200 billion a month, SocSec costs $50 billion, Obama threatens to starve Grandma
Washington Examiner ^ | 12 Jul 11 | Mark Tapscott

Posted on 07/13/2011 6:27:03 AM PDT by xzins

Washington gets $200 billion a month, Social Security costs $50 billion a month, and Obama is threatening to starve Grandma?

.President Obama told CBS News today that he "cannot guarantee that those [Social Security] checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it."

But wait just a minute. If Washington receives about $200 billion in monthly revenues and sends out roughly $50 billion worth of Social Security checks and the same amount of Medicare payments, why is Obama claiming the checks may not go out?

Isn't $200 billion minus $100 billion still $100 billion?

Because Obama is playing the demogogue, that's why. Pure and simple. He is trying to scare seniors into making panicked calls to their congressmen begging them to do whatever Obama and the Democrats want in order to keep the checks coming.

This is demogoguery of the worst sort because Obama has to know that what he is saying is false. When you and I say something we know to be false, it's called a "lie."

Clearly, it is of no matter to Obama that hiking taxes and raising the national debt limit very likely will keep millions of Americans unemployed and hobble the economy for years to come. All he has to do is scare enough voters long enough to get through the November 2012 election to get himself re-elected.

Here are the facts, as reported by MarketWatch and the Bipartisan Policy Center. You do the math:

* The federal government receives approximately $200 billion in revenues each month.

* Interest on the national debt in August will be approximately $29 billion.

* Social Security will cost about $49. 2 billion.

* Medicare and Medicaid will cost about $50 billion.

* Active duty military pay will cost about $2.9 billion.

* Veterans affairs programs will cost about $2.9 billion.

If you've been punching buttons on your calculator, you know that still leaves $39 billion each month. This is where Obama and the Democrats most fear to go. If Congress doesn't agree to raise taxes and the national debt limit, they will then have to make the tough choices about which of the remaining programs gets paid or cut and by how much:

* Defense vendors

* IRS refunds

* Food stamps and welfare

* Unemployment benefits

* Department of Education

* Department of Housing and Urban Development

* Department of Justice, etc. etc.

In sum, federal spending would have to be cut about 44 percent. For more on this, go here and here.

So the next time you hear Obama, or Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, or Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, or any of the multiple Democratic echo chambers in the liberal mainstream media, remember - what they are saying is pure demogoguery. .

Marco Rubio was on the Hugh Hewitt Show last night pointing this out, and doing a really outstanding job. The GOP needs to make him the point man on this, and keep him in front of cameras and microphones as much as possible.

Oh. Very nice. You expect his Czars and his 144 White House staffers who make $150,000 a year to go without pay just so some blue-hair who's on his or her last legs or some uneducated boob who got stuck serving in Iraq can get money to spend any way they want.

You're a jerk.

He’s so brave to threaten senior citizens.
He knows if he threatened the “food stamps and welfare” category on that list with losing their bennies, we’d already have riots in the street today.

Don't worry, Grandma. You may have to skip a couple of checks but if so it will be in the knowledge that no thuggish dictators were harmed in the process. They won't have to skip any checks.

not just Obama, but also Mitch McConnell is playing up the hoax too that we’ll default if we don’t raise the ceiling.

We need to just pay $19 billion a month on interest payments to keep from defaulting.

I just had it out with a liberal. What he said was, yes, there is plenty of SS money. But, if we don’t pass the to increase the debt ceiling, there will be no money to run SS offices that process the checks.

Stupid comment by the lib since the costs of SS are a mere 2% and come out of the SS fund, so this 50 billion probably already includes the overhead.

Servicing the debt is connected with bonds and loans. SS is not part of the equation, unless unscrupulous politicians try to make it so.
YET, NO REPUBLICANS WILL COME OUT AND SAY SO BECAUSE HE GAME IS MORE IMPORTANT TO THE BELTWAY THAN THE RESULT!

I also just read he’s now threatening military pay and retirement. If this doesn’t come to pass, O’bama is going to look like the little boy who cried wolf one to many times. I pray that’s exactly what happens. And I pray that the republican’s stand firm.

The Republicans can own them on this issue if they're smart. Just make the following statement:

Yesterday the President of the United States and the Senate Majority Leader vowed to balance the budget on the backs of seniors, the sick and our service members if a debt limit increase is not passed by Congress. The President is responsible for determining what items are the highest priority and will get paid and which ones will be deferred or cut. The President and Majority Leader have announced in no uncertain terms that bureaucrats, special interest groups and corporate cronies are more important than those among us who are the most vulnerable and those who are risking their lives to keep us free.

Budget info for SSA:

http://www.ssa.gov/budget/FY11%20Key%20Tables.pdf

By my count, monthly outlay for SS is about $67 billions.

So, there is still plenty of ‘revenue’ available to send out those checks, and the other items mentioned in the article.

Obama is evil, plain and simple.

He might threaten, but he wouldn’t dare stop SS/Medicare.

The Gray Panthers would claw him relentlessly. He would be losing the AARP’s supposed 40 million membership.

That would be disaster for his reelection [assuming he is not forced by the Dem Party to step aside early next year].

Rubio is hammering him on the facts but, has not said he is flat out lying. No one has ...or will.

Much of our nation's problems have come from the fact that Obama is not a leader. His entire agenda is about getting even with those who don't support his marxism either by ignoring or punishing them. AS far as I am concerned any republican who won't stand up and say so is abetting his plan.

I can't find the words to express my hate for these people.

Good article showing how these political crack addicts have to lie and dissemble to keep the great fraud going.

That they fall back to their usual trick of trying to scare grandma shows how morally bankrupt they are.

The list reads like a Dem Christmas wish list.

Which it is.

And which needs to repealed ASAP.

Obama, Flush with Cash, refuses to pay Military and Veterans!

Yet, he won't dare cut off welfare for the illegals or crack addicts.

I’ve been saying this for months. There’s more than enough money coming in monthly to prevent anything called a “default.” A ‘default” occurs only when we either cannot render interest on the existing debt, or redeem existing notes, which we would then have to roll over into new debt.

We have much more than enough to prevent technical default on all existing US Treasury obligation.

We even have enough to pay out Social Security and veteran’s pension payments. And enough to pay active duty military.

What we don’t have is enough to pay defense contractors, pay all the federal boondoggle programs, the various grifter/welfare programs, etc.

The GOP has allowed this “default” meme to get going way too early, way too widely, and they should shut it down with a simple pie chart or something that even the journalists can understand in their innumerate stupor.

Take the 39 billion a month this article says remains. Add to it the total cash from all the cuts of departments, agencies, duplicative programs, and efficiencies.

Pay military operational expenses.

Then give a share of the total cash now remaining to each surviving department based on its previous percentage of the total budget.

Tell them to live with it or close shop.

You have just balanced the budget.

When I look down the list, I can't even begin to explain what some of these agencies might do, or be expected to do.

21. Medicaid demonstration project for global payment system (Section 2705, p. 536)
58. Community Preventive Services Task Force (Section 4003(b), p. 1126)
94. Commission on Key National Indicators (Section 5605, p. 1489)
121. Pregnancy Assistance Fund (Section 10212, p. 2164)

I wish we could replace the bland and boring McConnell with the fiery and passionate Rubio.

... AS far as I am concerned any republican who won't stand up and say so is abetting his plan.

For the three prior administrations and long before that, all the RNC is interested in is its share of the loot. They have been major enablers and cheer leaders for globalism and the NWO in the oxymoron of 'free trade'; globalism is nothing other than communism/fascism in a business suit.

Marco Rubio was also on Rush's program Tuesday...read the full transcript of Marco's conversation with Rush...worth your time...www.rushlimbaugh.com

Marco is one true conservative...he with his parents escaped from Cuba and knows who and what obama is all about..and he is articulate and knowledgeable on all issues to talk about it.

Actually I think he wants the Seniors, Vets, disabled to riot, so he can have Marshall Law...then he can blame Republicans stating he just ‘had to do it’, for the protection of Americans. Repeat after me: Financial Terrorist!
