White House Budget Deficit To Top 1.8T
 Monday, May 11, 2009

Washington Times: The deficit for the current budget year will rise by $89 billion to above $1.8 trillion -- about four times the record set just last year. The unprecedented red ink flows from the deep recession, the Wall St. bailout, the cost of President Barack Obama's economic stimulus bill, as well as a structural imbalance between what the government spends and what it takes in.



Commentary: Our government was never supposed to be our "daddy," or should I say, "pimp." The government welfare and social programs have got to end, and the money has to be left in the peoples' pockets. I realize that as long as our government takes money from us to use in these programs, many of us will have to use some of the programs. (I have two daughters, one grad and one under grad. For college alone, most people have to try to get some money back from the government.) However, if the programs are ended and money is left in the peoples' pockets, we would all have far more money to live on and to meet our needs. Also, the government should go back to what the U.S. Constitution said for how the federal government is to get money to run itself; and that is by getting the money from the states. This would cut cost by eliminating the IRS and by having the federal government accountable to the 50 state governments. --Just in case Obama is reading this. That's ALL of our states.
