BHO, with the help of the MMM (See the rant of 05/15/11) are pulling the wool over the public’s eyes once again. They are trying to convince the American people of a couple of things. One is that the world will end if we don’t raise the debt ceiling. Ask any economist that doesn’t work for the government and they will tell you that we will not default on our bonds, we will be able to pay servicemen and women and we will be able to pay Social Security and Medicare.
The second thing they are lying about is that the Republicans refuse to be reasonable. Yep, the Republicans sure are the bad guys. They refuse to let BHO raise taxes, AGAIN. BOH and the demoncrats refuse to cut anything, not just entitlements, but anything. They keep talking about cuts of ten trillion over ten years. In the words of the immortal W. C. Fields, “Have you ever heard such horse hockey in your life?” The truth is politicians of every stripe who promise spending cuts “in the future” also have a bridge to sell you. These promises have been made over and over again and the tax increases and additional spending always happen now. The spending cuts never happen.
One thing is certain: We have to cut spending, cap future spending as a percentage of GDP and we really need a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. Without it the worthless bums in Washington will find a way to spend and tax over and over, higher and higher. The truth is we are close to a point where the world’s lenders will be imposing a debt ceiling on us whether we like it or not!
