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
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.
