Default Rick Santelli for VP??

I'd vote for him.

He's the ONLY person on TV that even tries to get people to understand to scope of our spending problems.

Obama now admits that he lied when he said that the purpose of taxing achievement was to pay down the federal debt. Now, the supposed purpose is to "invest" in education, research, health care and veterans.

As a veteran, does that mean that Obama is going to send me a check every month out of the $4.7 billion, which is about one-tenth of one percent of the federal budget, his scheme might bring in?

I have another idea. The federal government could easily save $4.7 billion by cutting out a few lavish parties, and send part of that savings to me each month.

Euroweenies!
By Mark Steyn
April 10, 2012

The other week I wrote that, depending how you run the numbers, we’re already worse than Greece. Over at Powerline, John Hinderaker isn’t ready to go that far, but he does have a Republican Senate graph demonstrating that the US is broker than Europe. In a nutshell:

US debt: $15.1 trillion;

Eurozone debt plus UK debt: $12.7 trillion.

John says:

The populations of the two entities are almost exactly the same, so the U.S. debt is larger on a per capita basis, too.

That’s not quite right. There are about 313 million Americans, 330 million or so in the Eurozone (ie, excluding the United Kingdom). So, if you do a direct US/Eurozone comparison it’s $15.1 trillion over here, $10.8 trillion over there, which means at the present rate, in another seven or eight months Americans will be 50 per cent more indebted than the Euros. And I would say that even that understates it, since most Continental nations have far more centralized governments while ours is a purely federal debt excluding another $3 trillion or so in combined state and local debt.

They have another advantage: Whatever you think of these guys, from Dublin to Madrid to Athens they’re talking austerity and cuts. Over here, the ruling party has no plan, no plan to come up with a plan, lots of plans to keep spending more more more – and a leader traipsing round the country offering only hack demagoguery against the only plan on the table


So.... when does basketball season start again??

Second the motion.
I just wish people would hear and realize what he is saying.
The problem is politicians.
