As I said above Lucid at face vale it makes sense, but if you add up the numbers, do the math examine the debt, the global economy, assets, military
spending and tack on Obama projects
4% doesn't solve a bit of it, it buys a bit of time and investors in the economy suffer
It will never, EVER stop at 4% in 4 years it will be 50% or higher
And the "we voted for him" line of thinking I can not accept, we might have (maybe) voted in Bush, in reality the Supreme court did...
none the less, there is no aspect of our society that gets bailed out , not me, not you, not until NOW corporations and only because the govt actually
fears corporate America turning on them.
They made mistakes, they shouldn't take it from the people they should be a responsible govt and no one in Washington Dem or Rep wants to hear these
But a form of Bankruptcy and repayment plan needs to be instituted NOW before a genuine collapse comes
The money doesn't Exist in the hands of the rich or poor to overcome the kind of debt we are in.
programs need to be cut, spending needs to be decreased, we need to admit failure in this war and bring the troops home to save money and...we
additionally need to eliminate our overseas forces almost entirely
We are Bankrupt bro,
They are playing Monopoly by... mortgaging all their properties to get a few last rounds in the game and all the monopolies are taken including
Boardwalk and Park Place
There will be only one way to fix this soon... More war and acquisition of resources if we do not just admit what has happened here
The American Tax Payer doesn't work for the govt the govt works for us and when employees fail...if it was you or I, we would be fired...
