The US economy continues expanding. Such growth was nonexistent throughout the entire eight years of the Oabma admenstruation.
Growth is good! It means more people get employed; and less become the burden of the taxpayers (aka welfare). So, since more revenue is rolling in - lets celebrate! How about we start rolling back our DEFICIT; and start paying down the DEBT?! Nope. The deficit for 2019 will continue to rise. Surprised? I'm sure as hell not!
Excerpts from the Heritage Foundation :
> "The CBO projects that, by 2020, the deficit will grow to more than $1 trillion annually, an increase of $233 billion from the latest projection. By 2028, annual deficits could reach more than $1.5 trillion annually, with no sign of slowing down. The 10-year cumulative deficit is projected to be $12.4 trillion, over $2 trillion higher than last year’s CBO estimates."
> "How Washington handles America’s fiscal problems will, indeed, define the future of the United States as a superpower and as a country. If Americans remain unwilling to control the national debt level, Washington will lose its ability to shape the international system —a situation that would ultimately threaten America’s viability as a nation"
The President continues to call for funding for "the wall" to be included in the 2019 spending bill (I refuse io call it a "budget!). Lets be totally honest here. What good will that "wall" do if states REFUSE to abide by federal laws w/ their sanctuary policies; and where they refuse to incarcerate, and even protect, criminals - because they are illegal aliens? And what about the FACT that the US continues to take in the so called "refugees" from the Middle East? (45,000 in 2018 so far)
A growing economy alone IS NEVER ENOUGH! NO ONE is resolving a damned thing! So, bottom line is - the nation is still very much in peril.
The Wall, is being built, like it or not.
Trump dumps on NAFTA, a new deal with Mexico, which included Mexico putting in money to build The Wall.
If the Government wants to Balance The Budget,National Debt, Dump The Federal Reserve.
If I was you I would not pick a fight out of Hank, he is more intelligent then he acts. And besides, the Federal Reserve and the Banks connected to it are going somewhere. By the hand of Trump, or by some other means, you do not know all that is taking place.
And by the way, I did do a check on the National Debit, its much worse then what your pea brain can wrap around.
Behaviorally speaking, quite a few of you here at TPCC are no different than the fanatics on the left.
If you are so smart,Luis, share the numbers, for the US National Debit.
Don't show him,Hank, if luis✩USA, is so smart let him figure it out, and those numbers above are not even close...........
What ever Tif, this luis✩USA, write and talks like a girl, but who knows?
(eyeroll) is a girls way, not a man.
BUDGET not in DC vocab
glad it is in ours. it is up to us the people to vote in or out whom we want.
the mid terms are coming and i say do not sit home the Dems surely are not going to
the nation depends on it
the pres and the country are under attack and we are at war the economy is doing great and the wall yep coming along. he cannot do it all CONGRESS has to.
We have exactly nothing in our control.
You are absolutely right, J9. And no "one" person can ever change that. But, then again, the Constitution is designed so that no one person could have any authoritarian / dictatorial power. We are a Representative Republic. Many, many, many moving parts.
When last years atrocious spending bill was signed into law by the potus, he said "it's not ganno happen again". In a few days we'll find out, won't we? I foresee no changes in the OVERspending at all. There'll be no SocSec reform. The taxpayers $$$$ will be wasted on subsidies that "tea party" used to holler against! The Deficit / Debt will continue soaring. Even if we do gain more seats - we will not be in control. But that comes to no surprise to me.
I see no changes in the plundering of WE the People.
He could have
vetoed that last atrocity, saying,
"We will follow the constitution, specifically Article I. We will fund those things. That's it. I promised we would defund pP. And I mean it. Do not ever send me this type of unconstitutional monstrosity again. Congress. Read the Constitution And send me a true budget that defunds unconstitutional agencies and their rules. "
A brief tell off would do the trick.
