Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Democrats in the US Senate have broken the law for four years by not passing a budget. This is the height of criminal gross negligence as US debt passes $16.5 trillion and approaches $17 trillion, as 46 cents of every dollar we spend has to be borrowed.
A majority of responsible citizens that have managed businesses and family budgets wondered how this could possibly be done, but now we know why. Democrat Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray has finally proposed a detailed budget and it is simply nuts. Murray has proposed adding $1.5 trillion more in new taxes without cutting one dime of non-defense government spending.
If Americans could simply connect the dots of their own thinking, they would know that this is nuts. According to Gallup, Americans believe that the government wastes 51 percent of every tax dollar. According to that Gallop poll, even Democrats believe that the government wastes 49 percent of every dollar they confiscate from us. We all agree that there is massive government waste. Therefore, why in the world would any of us agree to raise taxes before the government eliminates the massive waste, fraud and corruption that is bankrupting all of us?
Obama and the Democrats have added more debt in just four years than all the previous presidents before him combined. If Americans don’t stand up and demand responsible government spending, our kids will be doomed with the massive irresponsible debt that we will leave them.
