Quote for the Day

"You vote yourselves salaries out of the public funds and care only for your own personal interests; hence the state limps along." -- Aristophanes

Selling Us off Piece by Piece

"U.S. congressional budget analysts have raised their estimate of the net cost to taxpayers for the government's financial rescue program to $356 billion, an increase of $167 billion from earlier estimates.

The Congressional Budget Office had originally projected the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program would cost taxpayers $189 billion." [link]

Just a small bookkeeping error folks nothing to worry about. We will just add on a small percentage increase of roughly 88.35% from the original total.

Now let me ask anyone who reads this. What would your reaction be if you went to any place of business or tried to get any type of service done, received an estimate on the cost of said service/item, and when the time came to pay there was a total price increase of more than 88 percent? How many of you would actually pay then?

Americans need to stop feeding the government with our hard work and labor if they continue to pull these types of tricks. Enough is enough. It is not right that my children, my grandchildren, my great-grandchildren, etc...will have to pay for the mistakes our government has made. Government spending must cease immediately.
