Kids are going to die!

Of course the rhetoric will begin. Children are going to die. People will suffer and starve. Spending is being slashed to the point to that we will not recognize anything that the government can do or that the deficit will spiral out of control. Pres. Trump and the Republicans want you to die. It is typical but still as I’ve said before unbelievable the way opponents of Pres. Trump and conservatives twist the facts. There are no cuts in overall spending in the budget proposed by Pres. Trump. If you hear anybody say anything different they are lying lying lying. There is no other way to put it. There are cuts in the growth rate of spending which means quite simply we will be spending more on the federal government this year than we did last year. Two years from now will be spending more than we did next year. Over the 10 years of the budget proposal would will spend $50 billion more than we do this year. Are some programs being cut? Yes. Like the $700,000 to fund a play that promotes the idea man is causing climate change. Those types of things are being cut. But Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, CHIP, and similar transfer payment programs are not being cut. They are getting more money every year under the budget.

But you also need to understand is that this budget will balance the federal budget and reduce the deficit, eliminating it in 10 years, if we achieve a 3% rate of growth. Anybody to says we cannot grow at 3% per year does not know history and does not believe in the ability of the American people. If the government gets out of our way this economy can grow four or 5%. And if that gives us the ability to pay the deficit down will grow even faster.

If the economy grows even 1 to 2%, that means more people will be working and fewer people will need the benefit programs such as Medicaid and welfare. So those programs will not need as much money as they do right now. People will be able to purchase their own health care with their own money, if Congress does its job and gets the hell out of the way on the health insurance side of the equation.

Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi said that this budget is unimaginative, shows disdain for the millions of Americans were struggling to make ends meet and throws them out to the wolves. Those comments should prove to you once and for all what we have been telling you all along: the liberals believe you cannot do it for yourself and you have to have the government teat to suckle from in order to succeed. How’s that been working out for the last four decades?

Nancy Pelosi said that Medicare and Medicaid will wither on the vine. That is not true but she goes on to say that if the American people knew what was in the budget they would not support it. In fact they would call for everyone who did support it, including those who voted for speaker Ryan’s budget which she claims to be identical, to be thrown out of office. So we need to read the budget before its past? We need to read the law before its past to find out what’s in it? When did we have to start doing that?!

The Democrats are saying that the budget if it is passed and implemented would be an albatross around the neck of the Republicans in 2018 and would return control of the government to the Democrats. If that is true why don’t they vote for it? They want to be back in control and they see this as a way to get control back then they should be out there pushing John McCain and the other liberal Republicans to get behind it and vote for it. Then they can go back to doing things the way they been doing for the last 40 years.

The simple fact is this: the budget continues to grow in almost every major program or department that the federal government operates. There is some training of the fat but not enough. But if anybody tells you that there are real cuts in any department’s budget you should turn around and walk away because that person is either willfully ignorant or willfully lying to you. And you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
