I read the paper, I watch TV, I listen to the radio, and all I can think is “Only in Washington!”
The latest version of the budget has been released and I can’t understand how anyone would think this Congress is doings it’s job. This goes for BOTH SIDES of the aisle. Both Democrats and Republicans must’ve skipped out on the same economics classes when they went to school.
Neither budget actually cuts spending, all the Republican version does is slow the rate of increase. Both sides are basing their budget expenditures on “iffy” or “pie in the sky” revenue collections.
No matter what the “talking heads” say, I don’t believe the economy is going to grow, let alone grow enough to produce the tax revenue we need to be able to produce a balanced budget in ten years.
Again, this is a case of the politicians ignoring reality, telling and re-telling what their “handlers” are telling them we want to hear. None of these budgets truly work, but I guess a budget doesn’t really matter. We have been running without a budget pretty much since Mr. Obama has been president. That’s why we go from one budget “crisis” to another, there is no budget.
I know I sound like a broken record but that’s because nothing ever changes in D.C. It’s the same people doing the same things the same way over and over, and promising different results…..isn’t that the definition of insanity?
Remember, these amateurs that WE’VE sent to Washington are set for life, they won’t have to worry financially ever again (unless they truly are dumb-asses). They are playing with OUR MONEY, not theirs.
The truly sad part is we’ve done this to ourselves.
