Last year the government spent $1.45 for every $1.00 they took in. Are you willing to give the government 45% more of your income?
A county here in CA has about a THREE BILLION annual budget. Their offices are as opulent as an Arabian palace. Guess the needy like to feel their benefactors have great facilities.
Dude, in Taxifornia, that doesn't surprise me. I would never live there.
(Also that's state money, not Feds).
Your math is a bit fuzzy.
We don't give 100% of our income now for that $1.00
But I get your point
I don't think he was writing a thesis, just making a point
Yes - but his point is hidden in his misunderstanding of math
I don't think the math was the point. That would be like saying "nice message Picasso, but work on your geometry."
Sorry should have said more in taxes
Bit of a non sequitur there.
It's a fact even if you don't care for it
I don't argue the fact, the math was just a bit off.
That's... Not quite how it works...
Yeah just swipe the credit card again
Do I have a choice ?
You always have a choice
That's funny, and the left says the deficit and debt is lower now than in the last 5 years. Just today the National Debt went up over $300 billion. We are in BIG trouble folks.
"The left" says both are smaller? I doubt it. Most likely whatever you heard was, instead, a statement that the *growth* of the debt shrank as compared to previous years' growth rate.
Agreed. That is how the govt. calculates things. 1 + 1 = 2.5, and so on.
Video for the debt.
No, but I guess I don't get much choice in the matter.
It's called who you vote for across the board.
It's called no one appears to give a shit what They agreed to do when I voted for them. They get there and all they seem to want is to be re elected.
Make the President and Congress all one party than see what happens.
If it is so simple, why haven't you done this yet?
I vote straight party ticket, have to ask someone else.
I agree icytoes, you vote for a politician and all they really give is talk, then ask to get re-elected.
Fûck voting, that got us into this mess. Time for a more direct solution.
