Just another spending spree

January 14, 2013

Are you spending twice as much as you did 10 years ago? Probably not; you’d either feel as if you’d struck it rich or your creditors would be forming a posse to come after you if you were....

Hey Mike Myer! If you republicans had paid for the two wars {instead of cutting taxes at the same time,} this wouldn't even be an issue. Be "responsible" for what you started!

This morning our National Debt = $16,449,799,+++.+++. Debt Per Citizen (man/woman&child) = $52,295. Debt Per Taxpayer = $145,759.

Denver don't forget Mrs. Obummers vacations alone cost us taxpers $40,000,000 in the first 3 1/2 years since her Crowning. Her personal staff of 26 cost us taxpayers an additional $1,750,000.

Waste in our federal government is at all levels, in both parties, all agencies and "We The People" pay.

The Republicans were given a surplus budget when President "W" Bush was appointed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000. First he lied his way into the Iraq war and then on to a war in Afghanistan, all on Uncle Sam's credit card. Then "W" dismantled Clinton's tax increase with a tax cut...especially for the rich and big corporations, again all on the credit card. Then "W" provided a drug program for seniors making it illegal for Uncle Sam to negotiate drug discounts from drug corporations (a sweetheart deal)adding hundreds of millions of dollars...all on the credit card. Now the USA spends more on national defense than the next 13 countries combined, including Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, Japan and Germany. Much money is wasted making defense contractors billions of dollars...Now the Republicans have the gull to act with righteous indignation regarding the national debt as if they have clean hands. Poppycock!!!
