WHAT'S NEXT ?? ..... More compromise ?
John Ransom, a Townhall columnist recently said in reference to the budget cutting compromise:
"That’s the way our system was designed; for gradual change, not revolution. For those who feel the revolution has been betrayed somehow, I caution that revolutions in American politics are slow, fitful things that are evolutionary not revolutionary."
As he goes on to admit "For the first time in 46 years Congress has actually reduced the level of spending year-over-year. Without voters making it absolutely clear in townhall meetings, rallies and protests that they are taxed enough already, we’d be looking at higher spending most certainly."
So, we should be satisfied....Right ??
Well, this means that, at that rate .....if we had another 46 years, I can assume we would get another similar cut?? Hmmm?? Think about that!!??
Erik Erickson of Redstate explains: "the GOP is getting $38.5 billion in total cuts for the year. Additionally, of the $38.5 billion in cuts, several folks on the Hill tell me that $12 billion is from readjusting baselines in the budget and are mostly smoke."
But we’ll take it, I guess??
........"For perspective, the federal government spends $10.46 billion a day.
The Democrats and Republicans have now come together to cut out just under 4 days worth of spending out of 365 days."
He goes on to say:
...."For a year now the Republicans and Democrats have told us we have serious problems and need serious solutions. They’ve told us we have a serious budget deficit crisis.
However, on Friday night the two parties came together and decided the crisis they’ve been telling us about really isn’t worth dealing with." ......certainly not now anyway !!!
So, WHEN, I ask ????
Lorita Doan another Townhall columnist had it right when she said "Balancing the federal budget will require deep cuts to non-performing programs and will require changes to the existing budgeting process in future years." ......
so again, I ask.....WHEN do we do this ???
Allowing "our system" to work its way through whatever gradual change some think is acceptable is simply NOT AN OPTION !!!
April 11, 2011 | Posted by Speaker Boehner's Press Office:
This week, the House will vote on House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) FY 2012 budget: The Path to Prosperity. In USA Today, Speaker Boehner says The Path to Prosperity “is a powerful blueprint for economic growth and fiscal responsibility that will help our economy get back to creating jobs, stop Washington from spending money we don't have, and lift the crushing burden of debt that threatens our children and grandchildren.” And in the Weekly Republican Address, Chairman Ryan explains how “this budget is a jobs budget.”
And so, the rhetoric continues.....but what do we really know now?
Well, for starters, we know that the Dems still think "cutting" is not spending (or "investing") at the same increased rate that they have been; and that its still OK for wage earners (especially wealthy ones, who work harder) to pay for the needs of those who do not; and that Repubs can be made to "blink" when the time comes.
We've also come to understand that both political parties....especially the leaderships, still practice the age-old art of SELF-PRESERVATION "POLITICS" in that RE-ELECTION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN STANDING FOR ANY REAL PRINCIPLES or representing "WE THE PEOPLE"....BECAUSE THAT'S THE WASHINGTON WAY!

Barrack Hussein Obama.....the man acting as our President!!
He knows exactly what he's doing.
He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure through economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
This so-called “peace president” starts wars without declaration.
The TSA "gropes and scans" while local agriculture is threatened.
Mandates, regulations and bailouts never seem to end while the Fed prints, and prints…and prints.
WHILE....OBAMA hides his "real" original Birth Certificate with a Doctor & Hospital signature verification.....along with most of his personal information regarding education & associations.
Nothing suspicious there, right !? Hmmmm...???
He is a devout Muslim; Do not be fooled !!
Look at his Czars...anti-business..anti-American.
Look at his actions at home & abroad....his global views.
As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven (two professors at Columbia University). They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands.
It is a brilliant Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government.
Universal health care . The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and healthcare workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30+ million Americans (illegal or otherwise) will add trillions to the national debt.
What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30+ million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
Cap and Trade.
Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, "Cap & Trade" has nothing to do with global warming.
But it has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy, and a payoff to Obama's biggest contributors such as GE, (which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) along with the biggest labor Unions and many more.
Make Puerto Rico a state.... Why?
Who's asking for a 51st state?
Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?
Certainly not American taxpayers. But Obama's plan is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressmen
and a million or so loyal Democratic voters who are, again, dependent on big government.
Legalize 12+ million illegal Mexican immigrants.
Just giving these 12+ million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America; but it also adds 12+ million more reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Then add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
Stimulus and bailouts.... Where did all that money go?
It went, of course, to Democrat contributors; organizations like ACORN, and unions like SEIU -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues.
It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All done so that those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America.
The country goes broke & future generations face a bleak future; but Obama's administration (big government), the Democrat Party, and the complicit unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means.
Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators.
Put the entire tax & spend burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except voting for Obama).
