Congress Austerity and Budget are not Four Letter Words


Congressman Connie Mack's “Penny Plan”, is a plan which will reduce the budget (when Harry Reid finally produces one!) 1% for each expenditure across-the-board. In 7-8 years the budget would be balanced. This is the best solution for long-term economic recovery and stability.

Also, it would be helpful to eliminate base-line budgeting and adopt zero-based budgeting making each department and area justify each expenditure. Programs should be eliminated that are no longer effective.

Entire departments, like the EPA and the Department of Education, should be scaled back or eliminated. Force the government to do its primary job, national security. Secure the borders.

Austerity is not a four letter word.

Get the government out of the way and let the private sector breathe and thrive. Now the government unwisely stifles the economy. They say they are here to help, but they are doing the opposite; they hinder. They hinder through burdensome taxes and regulations.

Study my Letter on Diana@Philosophyinaction.com.

You really ought to learn Basic Arithmetic. Cutting the Budget 1% a year would make it about 93% as large after 7 years, not 0.

You really believe that a measly budget cut of about 2 1/3% produces Austerity?

The so-called "federal government" is not only Bankrupt, It's Head- Over- Heels in Debt, & It Has A Huge, & Increasing, Budget Deficit. There's virtually zero $ for anything whatsoever.
