not sending out the social security checks WOULD BE A DEFAULT!!
the money was borrowed by the gov't from the fund, or rather, and exchange was made, they money for paper that are much like our treasury bonds, that
draw interest, and are PAYABLE ON DEMAND!! and that demand is activated if the fund needs the money to send out the checks!!
the gov't is under obligation to do this!!!
there are other things that could be cut, that quite honestly, most of the american people wouldn't never notice were missing!! they've been
griping about the gov't debt for a couple decades now, but well, not only haven't they've taken the time to find these senseless items in the
budget that no one really cares about, but they have just been creating new senseless items....
presidential coins that now need a new $600,000+ vault built, plus an extra million to move because no one wants them, and yet, they are still minting
a million of the things a day!!
bridges for critters to cross the road, and so fish can swim upstream into overly polluted creeks.
bridges to nowhere, while important, main bridges are left to decay till they collaspe!!!
trips to europe to study billboards...
there's a ton of senseless expenditures that could be cleaned out, and yet, their first attack seems to be on the poor and elderly....
well, maybe, just maybe, if the first family would cancel one of their overseas trips, because we are so broke, the elderly and the poor would feel
more kind hearted about giving up a little of what they are getting....
maybe, just maybe, if they put that airport that no one needs, and no one wants on the backburner, we'd get the message and see the need to pay a
little more in taxes ....
leaders are supposed to lead!!! lead us dear leaders by example!!! you want us to trim our budgets down so that we can live in this ecnonomy on an
$8 an hour job without starving our children, or raising them under a bridge?? fine show us how, show us you can run a gov't on just the money you
are getting!! ten to one, that family trying to live on that eight dollar an hour job is doing a better job keeping to a budget than you are keeping
the nation on it's budget, with it's trillions in revenue!!
