    Maybe it’s just me but how is it possible to save money by spending more money? Looking at the public debt in 2014 being 11.5 TRILLION, this is curious to me. Who’s country is this? Because I doubt “we the people” are the ones who are.

    Exactly, we’re saying- ‘Ohmigosh we’re in debt more than we could’ve ever imagined! Well maybe if we spend a bit more money that debt will some how disappear.’ It’s crazy and our government is out of control.

    And what do you propose we do instead? Nothing? Let the markets work themselves out? Crack open a history book and see how well that worked for a guy named Herbert Hoover.

    It is very revealing that for you, the only alternative to 11.5 Trillion debt is to do NOTHING. What happens when the next major crisis comes along (hey seem to be coming more frequently)? Do we add an additional 11 Trillion each time? The fundamental concept of burdening our children with huge debts in order to encourage lending and borrowing now, should be offensive to all but the completely selfish.

    Hoover was a protectionist not a free market. Open a history book. FDR spending kept depression going for 13 years until he died. I you said read a history book with an open mind.

    Again Hoover was a protectionist not free markets, crack a book.

    Federal governemnt should provide defense, regulate oversea trade, interstate intrastructure, secure borders, leave the rest up to the state. This bill socailizes to many thing, waste to much money and gives the Feds more power. They have been running education, welfare, social security, medicare (31% waste), etc for 50 years and have not been able to make them work. So lets give them more so it wont work either.

    No, My idea is not to do nothing. That would be entirely irresponsible. If we would take away programs that are not working and STOP ADDING PROGRAMS we would cut down a huge amount of our spending.

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 2:37pm

    Spend! Spend! Spend! More Government Programs! More Governemnt Jobs, that “We The People” will be paying for! Alas, a Spending Spree that has gone wild!

    It seems more evident as each moment, whoops, each second passes that “These Politicians” really just don’t listen and Really Don’t Care about the American People that work and pay taxes!

    What are we to do? Perhaps, just stop paying taxes and see if they can pull all of this money out of Their Own Fat Bank Accounts! They seem to truly enjoy spending taxpayer money, wonder if they’d feel the same about spending theirs?

    OK, so here’s a few dumb ideas. Try to get past party affiliation here. How about we:
    Part 1.
    1. Do away with the earmarks, that of course come with many, many federal regulations to control states.
    2. Do away with the Federal Reserve, which has done nothing but put the screws to us over and over, again and again.
    3. Stop creating new government commissions and programs that spend money that the government does Not have.
    4. Cut taxes, instead of raising them, so that individual families have use of their own money to care for their own families and have more money to spend, which would do greatly to stimulate the economy.

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 4:26pm

    OK, so here’s a few dumb ideas. Try to get past party affiliation here. How about we:
    Part 2.
    5. Lift the bans the wonderful federal government has put on drilling for oil in the US. Try to go past party affiliation here. Make sense of this… we have oil here in the US, but instead of using it, we import oil from other countries, creating jobs for people in other countries, instead of creating them here. This means our government would rather other people in other countries have jobs instead of Americans having jobs, doesn’t it? And this means the paychecks for jobs created for Americans by drilling here would not come out of the taxpayers pocket, doesn’t it?

    Can you actually imagine such a dumb concept?

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 4:27pm

    OK, so here’s a few dumb ideas. Try to get past party affiliation here. How about we:
    Part 3.
    6. Cut corporate and business taxes so that more businesses would be able to afford and want to create new businesses in the USA, which in turn would create more jobs for American people, reduce the un-employment rate and those pay checks would not come out of the taxpayers pockets! Just doesn’t make any sense does it?
    7. Repeal the ethanol mandates that are turning much of our crops in the USA into corn to meet those mandates. How stupid, this would mean that the USA would produce more of its own food instead of importing it from other countries.
    8. Stop paying farmers Not to grow crops on their farm land. Now this is definitely a stupid idea. What possible reason could there be for farmers to grow crops on their farm land. It doesn’t have anything to do with food supply in the USA, does it?

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 4:28pm

    OK, so here’s a few dumb ideas. Try to get past party affiliation here. How about we:
    Part 4.
    9. Do away with the stupid federal government regulations on corporations & small business that have No purpose other than to reduce businesses from being in the USA. Many federal government regulations over the years have forced small businesses to close because those small businesses could not afford the regulation that was going to cost them a million dollars to stay in business. This in turn has created huge corporations, that now lobby in Congress for more regulations to get rid of even more small businesses. This doesn’t mean that the federal government doesn’t like small businesses, does it?

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 4:35pm

    OK, so here’s a few dumb ideas. Try to get past party affiliation here. How about we:
    Part 5.
    10. Do away with the IRS & Federal Welfare Programs. What? Let each individual state worry about income tax for their state and all programs, etc. in their state. No, No, No! This would end all those federal government jobs that the taxpayers are paying for and think about all those millions on Federal Welfare, states could have their own welfare programs decidedly by each individual state.

  • DianaAmerican 04/09/2009 4:36pm

    Part 5. # 10 cont’d
    We Can’t Do This, those federal employees would have to go out and get one of those new jobs created because new businesses formed in the US, because of the corporate and business tax reductions, & because stupid regulations are gone. It would also mean that welfare recipients would have to get a job or live in a state that decided to have it’s own welfare system. This is really dumb, we can’t expect those who are 2nd & 3rd generation welfare recipients to work, support themselves, after all, they wouldn’t have all that beer drinking time in front of the TV. Besides doing these things would be too much in keeping with the U.S. Constitution.
