Gov. Palin: Ryan Budget IS a joke because it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY

My Own Final Four Bracket For America’s Future

Holy Moly! Are you kidding? You’d think one who is representing the mighty Badgers, who made it to the Final Four based on sacrificial work ethic and discipline that obviously pays off in the end, he who represents the great state of Wisconsin that hosts this underdog celebrated college basketball team, would understand that future success depends on hard work and sacrifices. The latest Ryan (R, Wisconsin) Budget is not an April Fool’s joke. But it really IS a joke because it is STILL not seeing the problem; it STILL is not proposing reining in wasteful government overspending TODAY, instead of speculating years out that some future Congress and White House may possibly, hopefully, eh-who-knows, take responsibility for today’s budgetary selfishness and shortsightedness to do so. THIS is the definition of insanity. Do we still not understand how dangerous it is to allow government to grow unchecked as we shackle ourselves with massive debt – a good portion of which is held by foreign nations who don’t necessarily like us? If we can’t balance the budget today, what on earth makes us think it will happen at some future date? The solution is staring us in the face. We need to rein in spending today, and don’t tell me there is nothing to cut when we know every omnibus bill is loaded with pork and kickbacks.

Reading the article linked below gave me the same reaction that my daughter just caused when she punked me with a very unfunny April Fool’s Day announcement. As my Dad would say after these April Fool’s announcements, “This would kill a lesser man.” This out-of-control debt is killing our economic future.

Governor Palin successfully managed the budget for Alaska during her tenure as governor of that state..  Stacy Drake’s article at C4P entitled Governor Palin’s Executive Accomplishments details  just how well she did in the Budgeting and Spending section.

Tea Party: Paul Ryan’s New Budget A Work of April Fool’s Day Fiction

 

1 Apr 2014 post a comment

On Tuesday, Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, released his proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget, which increases spending in 2015 and 2016 but would balance the budget within ten years with planned cuts in out years that are more speculative.

Leaders of the Tea Party movement around the country reacted to Ryan’s budget with derision, calling it a work of fiction.

Judson Phillips, founder of Tea Party Nation, told Breitbart News “Ryan’s budget should be found in the book store in the fiction department.  If there is one thing we know about Washington, increased spending now with the promises of spending cuts on the future means we will get the spending but never the cuts.”

Phillips had a message for Ryan.  “Why don’t we reverse the order?  Spending cuts now and maybe spending increases in ten years. “

Ben Cunningham, founder of the Nashville Tea Party, told Breitbart News it is fitting that Ryan released his budget on April Fool’s Day. “On this day when we celebrate fools, we are once again presented with a budget by Republicans and asked to believe it is something more than a political document,” Cunningham said.

“If Republicans are serious about avoiding national bankruptcy they will stop appropriating nonexistent funds for $400,000 camel statues. Until then WE are the fools if we trust but do not verify,” Cunningham added.

Mark Kevin Lloyd, a Virginia Tea Party activist, was equally dubious. “I got tired of watching Popeye reruns when I was a kid in the ’60s,” he told Breitbart News. “Wimpy was always asking for a hamburger today, and offering to pay next Tuesday.  That is exactly what this budget does for us.”

“The sad fact is that the promised reductions never come,” Lloyd said.”Future congresses are not bound by the dreams, schemes, and chicanery of previous congresses.  These people think the American people are stupid, and the fact that we keep letting them get away with it makes me believe they might be right.”

    I respect and admire both Palin and Ryan. But, Ryan is there doing the best he can to muddle thru this liberal mess we have ourselves in. I also believe Palin is correct in her ascertion we have to get ourselves out of this mess, yet we aren’t in the position to do so just yet. We have to first, slow down the “bad ship lollipop” before we can stop it. We only have so many tools at our disposal right now, until we can get a few more senators and a president who have any sense at all, and not until we get rid of the career ding-a-ling barnacles slowing down our “can-do” ship’s sailing towards progress. I personally believe that if we don’t strive 110% (all out) for energy independence, NOW, nothing else will matter much anyway. An energy policy treated as a “national defence” agenda has to be adopted, like, yesterday. We and our allies’ economic lives depend on it. Russia, Iran and others can blackmail (as they are doing already) so many in the world into compliance. The world needs America’s strong energy policy (and military). We can be energy independent in one year, and be the number one nation again. Oil companies need to heed a strong warning to get on board. We need a strong leader again, to do just that. It’s getting to the point of no return, where it’s too little too late, no matter what we do.

    Thank you, Sarah, for your fine work as usual. I totally understand if you wish to rule from the sidelines. I asked God to heal your son Trig. Did God do so?
