In 2012, Washington collected $20,000 in taxes for every household in America. But Washington spent nearly $30,000 per household. Tax Day: Where Did Your Tax Dollar Go?
I look at this and wonder who in their right mind thinks this is okay? Who can overspend their budget by 30% and think there won’t be consequences?
Not only is the spending insane, but the things our money is being spent on are wrong, as well. The federal government is not supposed to be paying for all these things, except for national defense. Social spending is not the federal government’s responsibility.
If we don’t do something about this soon, and I mean soon like yesterday, we’re going to make Greece look like child’s play.
I’ve been going through my Reader, catching up on all my blogs, and I caught this fascinating article over on American Thinker. Exactly Wrong, Again
“We are not in recession. The economy of the last eight years has been fine. And we are doing better than our European know-it-alls who favor an Obama victory. At least that’s what the most recent economic data show.”
Statistically, we’ve been better under Bush than we were under Clinton, although Liberals would have you believe otherwise. Taxes were much higher under Clinton, so don’t get so excited when Obama tells you he’s going to “put things back” to Clinton levels. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Check out the article linked above and you’ll see what I mean. It’s been better in America under Bush than it was under Clinton, and it’s better in America than it is in Europe. So if Bush is supposed to be some kind of economic problem, why are things worse in Europe than they are here?
