Fiscal insanity

“Fiscal insanity,” Monterey Herald – June 3, 2023

Not much of a surprise, the spending insanity continues in DC. The spineless Republicans and socialist Democrats apparently have reached an agreement as to how much they want to screw the taxpayers this time. Speaker Charlie McCarthy touts a $2.1 trillion reduction which will add $4 trillion to our national debt over the next two years! How is that a reduction? Political spin is what it is! Within the next 10 years, it is estimated that the interest alone on our debt will reach one trillion. A trillion is a large number, if your resting heart rate is 60, every breath you take is approximately $31,688.74 of interest. Pardon me if I am somewhat skeptical, but all of this is sure nonsense that further burdens our unsustainable national debt, which will lead to financial ruin for this country in the future. The only way DC will pay off this debt, if ever, is to tax, tax, tax the half of the wage-earners who pay all the taxes. When will these fiscally myopic idiots realize their incompetence is destroying the country?

Vote them out of office, when elections are upon us vote for the person who will do the best job for the country, don’t just vote your affiliated party.
