SARAH PALIN: PAUL RYAN BUDGET 'A JOKE'
Breibart Big Government ^ | April 1 | Tony. Lee

Posted on 04/01/2014 6:39:43 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices. The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. Palin said that the budget that was presented, though,"really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem."

"It STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so," she continued. "THIS is the definition of insanity. Do we still not understand how dangerous it is to allow government to grow unchecked as we shackle ourselves with massive debt – a good portion of which is held by foreign nations who don’t necessarily like us?"

"If we can’t balance the budget today, what on earth makes us think it will happen at some future date?" she wrote. "The solution is staring us in the face. We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks."

Palin urged her supporters to read the Tea Party leaders quoted in the Breitbart News article she linked that gave her "the same reaction that my daughter just caused when she punked me with a very unfunny April Fool’s Day announcement:"

As my Dad would say after these April Fool’s announcements, “This would kill a lesser man.” This out-of-control debt is killing our economic future.

Sarah I’ll just mention this, but how about thinking about this?

America needs to manufacture things once again.

Here in America. We need to stop making Chinese richer. We need to make Americans richer.

Bring back American jobs. Here. To America.

What good is it to cut the budget (not that we have one) if you are going to destroy our immigration system and let every socialist freeloader from every foreign country in to prop up the Democrats who are just going to spend more than the 5 trillion dollars of the cuts that really aren’t going to happen anyway thanks to the demographic changes that country clubbers like you helped create. Ryan go take a hike with McCain and Graham and don’t come back(and take Boehner with you).

With respect to a meaningful federal budget, Sarah Palin needs to include compliance with Congress's constitutional Article I, Section 8-limited powers somewhere in her critique too.

I think the best way to bring back jobs is to ‘export’ the unions.

Cutting federal regulations, which make it very difficult for American companies to compete with imports, would go a long way to getting companies healthy again to manufacture here. Of course, companies should cut the waste out of production and practice lean manufacturing principles to help trim the cost of production. In fact, any process, no matter what type of job you do, can be improved by cutting the waste out.

Shuddup. Your schtick is old now since you REFUSE to deal with reality. Actually, I have to ask, are you a Union Shill? You sure do want American companies to take it in the shorts and not address the problems this country has with free enterprise business. It is the only thing I can think at this point. Bring back American Jobs so the union can savage the american company seems to be your moto. It is that or bring back american jobs so the government can feast on that company. *clapping*.. Nice job, took me a while to figure you out commie.

Splendid!!!
Hardly anyone mentions that slice of the Constitution. Yet it’s the key point in any budget/spending/debt/deficit discussion. Were it followed as Madison intended, the federal government would probably be a third of its present size.

“We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks.”

Palin is correct. The answer is to bring the budget into balance today. Cut to the bone and raise tariffs, not income or corporate taxes, if there is a shortfall. Let foreign factories pay for access to the US market via a stiff tariff.

In the business world, when a company is losing money and borrowing from the bank to fund operations, eventually the board of directors brings in new management. The first thing management does is cut expenses to the bone in order to meet or beat the break-even point. If expenses can’t be cut enough, the company will sell assets or cut unprofitable product lines and operations. Management does what it must to restore profitability. Those companies that can’t achieve break-even declare bankruptcy and go into liquidation.

Politically it isn’t easy to cut the budget to bring revenue in line with spending but it can be done. Entire departments and hundreds of programs will have to be eliminated, each of which has a constituency who will scream. The troops will have to be brought home from overseas bases. The bureaucracy will have to be cut across the board (most restricting companies cut headcount by a minimum of 10%). Bureaucrats and elected officials will have to take pay cuts and do without perks such as rides on government jets and big parties/conventions. The government will have to privatize some of its activities or shut them down Amtrak, TVA, Post Office, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, rural electrification, student loans, and the air traffic control system are some that come to mind for privatization or liquidation. Foreign aid has to end as well as discretionary spending by the President.

Russian, China, and Iran are working hard to end the dollar’s reign as the world’s reserve currency. When the Middle East oil producers fall in line, the game will be up for the dollar. Either we will take drastic measures to restore the fiscal integrity of the nation or we will see hyperinflation and the destruction of the nation’s economy.

Sarah and everyone in Washington know the can has been kicked down the road and has just about reached the point where it can no longer be moved. The time of reckoning is now.

Boo-hoo...you want your union cake and to eat it too. Start manning up nancy. You can have your jobs back, right after you start manning up and kicking unions in the teeth and nuts and get government out of “business”. Otherwise, you’re just a commie retard but not bright enough to realize you are a dupe.

Just saying, I was an early Palin supporter and have been on her side from before McCain chose her as his Vice Presidential candidate back in 2008.

Ever step of the way.

That said, America needs jobs.

AMERICA needs jobs. We don’t need to make stuff in China. We don’t need to buy everything imported.

We need jobs right here at home.

Now.

I dunno.

I think a whole lot of this comes from people who make stuff in China and sell that stuff here.

China sold America something like 440 billion dollars worth of stuff last year.

China bought meanwhile, merely 122 billion dollars from America.

That is a MASSIVE trade deficit.

Meanwhile, Americans cannot buy land, or majority ownership in Chinese anything.

China has five times America’s population.

America we have a very serious challenge facing ourselves.

China is growing fast.

America needs to make things. Right here in America.

Paul Ryan is finished politically. He was for AMNESTY. ,

He still is 100% for Amnesty. I took a lot of heat when I railed against him after Romney picked him. As I said then, Ryan who voted for TARP, No Child Left Behind, ethanol subsidies, Medicare Part-D cannot be considered a Conservative.

He was for tax increases and more spending. HE IS A PHONY.

Ryan is a hard-core Statist.

Palin rocks!! She is the future. !!

Yes, I hope she or Ted Cruz is our nominee in 2016. She truly gets it.
