Washington DC is still being way too timid about cutting the government down to MINIMAL size. Not “nice to have” size or “how can we not help” size, but minimal size. Back to a level were Americans are free to make their own decisions and live with the consequences of those decisions.
Yesterday the news hit that the national debt had reached the total economic output for a single year. What was barely reported was how 25% of that amount was piled on in just the last 2 years of mad liberal spending under Obama, Pelosi and Reid. And since the liberal stimulus spending did NOT energize the economy (just the opposite in fact) the current trajectory of government waste and abuse is expected to add $2 Trillion a year before Obama leaves office. It is expected to double before the end of the decade. What took 200 years to accumulate the liberals in DC will accomplish 5 years of recklessness.
What a fricking disaster!
We need to take drastic actions and now. We need to sell off the money pit that is the US Postal Service – and make billions in the process. Get rid of the Department of Education – a $100 billion a year failure. Get rid of the department of energy and move its research labs under a new technology research organization for the non-military.
There are tons of programs who have been run by incompetents and have cost 2, 10 and 20 times what they should. The government bureaucracy will not shutdown failure and only squelches those who try to save money and do things right.
When I see the lame numbers and actions coming out of this Congress it kills me we have such wimps as our so-called leaders. The time for historic action is well past. It is time for true heroes to stand up and be counted.
