take the last real budget passed (2006, I think)..
take the total amount spent, multiply times .92, and whatever number comes out is how much you got to spend...
the following year, do it again...
Hey DC, Its the debt stupid
“Any grand bargain, therefore, must include significant reductions in government spending. These cuts must be real, actual cuts, not just reductions in the rate of growth, and must occur now, not in the out years. “
This true but it will never happen which is why we will be in a total economic collapse and probably CWII in the next 2 years.
Everybody keeps thinking that the Democrat leaders are too stupid or too socialist to see that their plans are dangerous to our country. That is making a huge mistake. They aren’t stupid and they are not socialists. What kind of lifestyle will Obama have when he retires? What kind of lifestyle does Gorbachev have? Do you honestly think that Harry Reid wants to put on a Mao jacket and pants? How about Nancy Pelosi? Do you think she wants to stand in an unheated apartment stirring potato soup? They are grifters....con men. They scare people and play on people’s envy and greed to get elected. Then, they grab the big bucks out of the public treasury. We think of the Democrat leaders as our opponents....they’re not. They don’t oppose us. We’re just inconvenient pains in the butt that have to be overcome every couple of years so they can keep on stealing.
The real issue isn't the growth of Government as a of GNP. It's the fact that 25% of our people are unemployed. 25% of GNP IS MISSING!!!
We need to focus on full employment and that means restoring trade barriers. And reworking the ill thought out free trade agreements to quit outsourcing American jobs.
Excerts from the book "Why Free Trade doesn't work: What should replace it and why">
And then with an expanded GNP from a fully employed economy, we can add to that productivity gains from automation to eventually meet our commitment to entitlements while simultaneously reducing entitlement's impact as a % of GNP.
