JERRY BROWN FOR PRESIDENT? MEETS WITH DONORS THIS WEEK

California Governor Jerry Brown, who was re-elected in a landslide earlier this month to what he says is his last term in office, will ask political donors on Monday to keep contributing, the Los Angeles Times reports. Brown defeated his opponent, Neel Kashkari, while retaining $20 million or more in his reelection account as of mid-October. However, Brown–who says he will not run for President–is still asking for cash.

The Sacramento reception asks for donations of $5,000 for a “private reception and sit down conversation” with Brown at Mulvaney’s B&L. Capitol Advocacy, a top lobbying firm, plans to attend; the firm will reportedly bring some of its major clients, including PepsiCo, Corrections Corporation of America, T-Mobile USA Inc., WellCare Health Plans, Pacific Compensation Insurance Co., and Diageo.

The Times, which secured a copy of the invitation, reports that Brown has spent little of his reelection funds since mid-October; he had told the Times that he was thinking of using any funds left over from his campaign to support ballot measures in his new term.

The Washington Post reported in October that Brown’s campaign said it had spent over $3.3 million on ads for Propositions 1 and 2. At that point he had not run a single television ad for his campaign.

Some journalists, notably Chuck Todd of NBC News, have speculated that Brown would likely run for president. Recently, HBO’s Bill Maher said that Brown ought to do so, and condemned what he said was age discrimination. (Brown would be 78 years old in 2016.)

Neither spokesmen for Brown nor his chief fundraiser, Angie Tate, had any comment when contacted by the Times.

 

 

The Obstacles to a Jerry Brown Run in 2016

When a governor in one of the country’s largest states is reelected by landslide margins, questions about that governor’s presidential prospects arise even before the polls close. But California’s Jerry Brown, who on Tuesday was given an unprecedented fourth termby Golden State voters, will almost certainly not be a candidate for the White House in 2016. The reasons have less to do with actuarial tables than with the nature of the national Democratic primary electorate.

The most noticeable obstacle to a Brown candidacy is his age. Although he was the youngest governor in California’s history when he was first elected in 1974, at age 36, Mr. Brown is now the state’s oldest governor ever. In November 2016, he will be 78, meaning that he would conclude his first term in the Oval Office at 82. The governor is in very good health, and this advanced age would not disqualify him from the presidency, but it does appear to have made him less ambitious about national office he was in 1976 and 1980, when he campaigned for the presidency. He has already said that he intends to use the many unspent millions of dollars he raised during this year’s gubernatorial campaign to fund future state ballot initiatives. Not only can most of that money not be transferred into a presidential campaign fund, but trying to run for president while also seeking to pass ballot initiatives in California would be enormously challenging–certainly given the time required to succeed at either task.

But the bigger obstacle for Mr. Brown is that his brand of centrism has no logical place in a 2016 primary field. If a challenge to Hillary Rodham Clinton is going to emerge, it will almost certainly be a populist voice from the Democratic base. Mr. Brown’s insistence on budget cuts that frustrated his party’s legislators, his unwillingness to ban fracking, and his continued interest in revamping California’s environmental regulations make him an unlikely flag-carrier for progressive primary voters. The key to Mr. Brown’s large victory Tuesday was fashioning an agenda of sufficient appeal to the state’s business community to deprive his Republican challenger of substantive financial backing.

A benefit of not running for president, of course, is that it allows the governor to focus his full attention on his day job. That might not be the stuff of national headlines, but, at this point in his long career, that might be good enough for Jerry Brown.

Gov. Jerry Brown says 2016 Democratic nomination is Hillary Clinton’s ‘if she wants’

When Bill Clinton arrived at the 1992 Democratic National Convention as the party’s all-but-certain presidential nominee, his persistent and pesky primary opponent, former California governor Jerry Brown, refused to endorse him.Two decades later, Brown is again governor of the nation’s most-populous state. Yet in a sign that he has patched things up with the first family of Democratic politics, Brown is ready to support Hillary Rodham Clinton if she seeks the presidency in 2016.“I really believe that Hillary Clinton has the presence, the experience and the support of the vast majority of Democrats in a way that I have not seen in my lifetime,” Brown said in a wide-ranging interview with The Washington Post. “She has this if she wants.”http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/gov-jerry-brown-says-2016-democratic-nomination-is-hillary-clintons-if-she-wants/2014/05/28/de3d0e0c-e5cc-11e3-8f90-73e071f3d637_story.html

More And More People Are Not Running For President In 2016

Posted: 01/16/2014 6:25 pm EST Updated: 01/25/2014 4:01 pm EST
JERRY BROWN NOT RUNNING 2016

It is 2014 at the moment, but since there isn’t any kind of massive unemployment problem and it’s totally safe for pregnant women to drink the water, water, everywhere, the media are filling the hole in their lives with only the hottest speculation about the 2016 presidential election.

For example, this week Time magazine istackling the phenomenon that is Hillary Clinton’s shadow campaign for president, noting that the mere threat of her candidacy is keeping other Democrats out of the race. This is less a “news story” than it is a fun and bouncy ball that is being passed from news organization to news organization. Time all but announced the unoriginality of the idea with its cover, which was created by going to a clip art archive and doing a global search for “women” and “clichés.” As with the story’s trope itself, it’s best examined in the gray light of the afterglow of an afterthought.

Against the 2016 onslaught, and our own contributions to it, let us now praise the real heroes of this period of premature frenzy — those men and women who have seen the light of presidential speculation beaming in their direction and have forthrightly declared, “You can include me out.” This week’s award for Valor In The Face Of People Wondering If You’ll Run For President goes to California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), who is not running for president:

Speaking at a Tuesday news conference in Riverside, Calif., Brown scuttled speculation about his presidential prospects when a reporter asked if he planned to throw his hat in the ring for a fourth time.

“No, that’s not in the cards. Unfortunately,” Brown said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Actually, California is a lot more governable.”

Supporters of Brown — who ran for the Democratic nomination in 1976, 1980 and 1992 — had hoped the popular governor would enter the 2016 race. Brown stoked speculation by not explicitly ruling out the possibility, although in May the 75-year-old noted that “time is kind of running out on that.”

You are forgiven if you weren’t aware that “Jerry Brown 2016” was even a thing about which people were even talking. It was an idea that had a share of anonymous supporters, but only just enough news coverage to warrant an inclusion onWikipedia’s list of potential 2016 candidates.

That page, by the way, is one of the most hilarious reflections of American politics on the Internet, because it turns out it doesn’t take much to be included. Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) ended up there because a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story speculating on whether Nixon’s future included a turn in the national spotlight led to a Politico story speculating on whether Nixon might not get his turn in the national spotlight because of Hillary Clinton, which led to another St. Louis Post-Dispatch story about the aforementioned Politico story, which led to a Washington Post story … speculating on whether Nixon’s future included a turn in the national spotlight, again.

Meanwhile, outside of Missouri, you have probably never heard of Jay Nixon. But you’re probably aware that Jerry Brown, between his first and latest stint as the Golden State’s governor, ran for president a bunch of times. And so, unsurprisingly, there was always someone on hand to stoke the fires of retro chic. In July 2013, the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported that some of Brown’s “allies” were “starting to talk up a possible 2016 presidential bid,” while another group of Brown’s associates were saying that Brown was going to be “78 [years old] by Election Day 2016,” that he “ran for statewide office only to end [California’s] budget crisis,” and that he was thus “nearly done with politics.”

A month later, Bernie Quigley, writing for The Hill, attempted to coax a Brown candidacy into being with the awesome force of the purplest prose he could muster:

California rises again with Brown, and it should come as no surprise. California brings the final destiny of our American journey, the final edge of expectation, the end and then the beginning again, the place and time of our American turning. Steve Jobs put it succinctly at the end: “The spaceship has landed.”

I asked an astute Californian about Brown’s prospects for national office. He said he will be too old in 2016. But Brown, Zen man of contemporary politics, is in a sense timeless.

Yeah … so that was a lot to absorb. The salient point is that Brown, obviously, doesn’t have the same opinion of his own timelessness. (Perhaps he finally decided to not run when he failed to regenerate into Peter Capaldi?)

Brown joins a happy confederacy of other men and women who have indicated that everyone can stop wondering if they are going to run for president, including New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (D), New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez (R), Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D).

Also, Tim Pawlenty is not going to run for president. (I did some digging and found out that this Pawlenty fellow was a former Republican governor of Minnesota who ran for president once before. Who knew? I guess I totally spaced.)

The Contrast on Taxes – Pro-growth reform or Job Crushing Tax Hikes

 

The Budget Debate’s Missing Ingredient – Economic Growth

Paul Ryan at the Economic Club of Chicago: Shared Scarcity vs Renewed Prosperity

 

Neither higher taxes nor more deficits and a higher national debt are the path to economic growth and prosperity.

President Obama hides in his budget proposal a tax rate increase to 44% for the so-called rich whose businesses create wealth and jobs in America .

This is a great speech or talk by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.

Unfortunately, while Paul Ryan talks the talk, his proposed Republican Budget simply does not walk the walk.

Congressman Ryan hides the Republican Party’s deficit in the open yet the press cannot even figure it out.

The proposed Ryan Republican budget for fiscal year 2012 results in an estimated deficit of $995 billion dollars or about another $1,000 billion increase in the national debt.

Yes, this is better than President Obama’s estimated  Fiscal Year 2012 budget deficit of $1,101 billion.

Yet both proposed budgets are not fiscally responsible but business as usual for the Democratic and  Republican Party establishments.

Neither the Republican nor Democratic Party budget proposals are the road to peace and prosperity but a Tea Party budget with balanced budgets most definitely is:

The real problem is out of control government spending and unbalanced budgets for nearly three more decades.

Paul Ryan long and winding road to a balanced budget in twenty-five years or longer is not a path to prosperity but a road to economic stagnation and financial ruin for the United States.

I applaud Paul Ryan’s growth and jobs message.

However, more and more deficit spending and an ever increasing national debt are a recipe for failure.

Stop spinning and distracting  us Mr. Ryan.

Balance the budget in Fiscal Year 2012 or you too will be replaced with someone from the tea party movement who will balance the budget and really cut spending.

Senators DeMint, Lee and Paul are on the right track for a peace and prosperity balanced budget that would cut spending by permanently closing Federal Departments.

Rep. Garrett explains the RSC plan to balance the budget in less than ten years on “Stossel”

 

 However, five years is simply too slow and the cuts are too small.

The United States economy is on the brink of another recession that must be prevented by balancing the budget now to restore business and consumer confidence that Congress understands both the scope and urgency of problem.

Time is running out on both the Democratic and Republican Party establishment and their leadership.

With over thirty million American searching for a full time job, the American people will vote out of office both big spending Democrats and Republicans. 

Food and gasoline prices as well the prices of imports and other goods and service are going up as the Federal Reserve devalues the dollar by massively increasing the money supply with so-called qunatitative easing.

In other words the purchasing power of your money is falling in value to pay for the Federal Government’s out of control spending.

The tea party movement wants balanced budgets and absolutely no increase in the National Debt ceiling.

Any Republican or Democratic in the House or Senate that votes for unbalanced budgets starting in Fiscal Year 2012 and an increase in the National Debt ceiling should be voted out of office in the next election.

George Michael – The Long And Winding Road

 

The Beatles The Long & Winding Road (2009 Stereo Remaster)

The long and winding road
That leads to your door
Will never disappear
I’ve seen that road before
It always leads me here
Lead me to your door.

The wild and windy night
That the rain washed away
Has left a pool of tears
Crying for the day.
Why leave me standing here?
Let me know the way.

Many times I’ve been alone
And many times I’ve cried,
Anyway you’ll never know
The many ways I’ve tried.

And still they lead me back
To the long, winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago
Don’t leave me waiting here
Lead me to your door.

But still they lead me back
To the long winding road
You left me standing here
A long, long time ago (ohhh)
Don’t keep me waiting here (don’t keep me waiting)
Lead me to your door. (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

 

The tea party movement and the American people are looking for the piper of living within ones means with balanced budgets and a dollar that is stable in value or purchasing power.

The American people will be calling the tune and throwing out of office both Democrats and Republicans who waste the people’s hard earned money on all that glitters–warfare and welfare.

The American people are looking for a rock and not being rolled by yet another articulate but fundamentally deceitful politician.

Led Zeppelin-Stairway to Heaven

“Stairway To Heaven”

There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold
And she’s buying the stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she’s buying the stairway to heaven.

There’s a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there’s a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There’s a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow, don’t be alarmed now,
It’s just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There’s still time to change the road you’re on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won’t go, in case you don’t know,
The piper’s calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she’s buying the stairway to heaven.

47% See Major Changes in Defense, Social Security, Medicare As Necessary to Big Budget Cuts, 36% Don’t

“…Most voters know they want to cut government spending in a serious way, but despite the ongoing national budget-cutting debate, they don’t seem to recognize what that’s going to take.

The majority of U.S. federal spending is allotted to national defense, Social Security and Medicare. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 47% of Likely U.S. Voters correctly recognize that it is necessary to make major changes in those areas to make truly significant long-term cuts in government spending. Thirty-six percent (36%) don’t believe big changes in these three areas are needed, while another 17% aren’t sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This marks virtually no change from early April but shows increased voter awareness from February of last year.

The most high-profile plan for changing Medicare that’s currently on the table is the one proposed by Republican Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. That plan, which includes allowing individuals to purchase private health insurance as an alternative and raising the eligibility age from 65 to 67, has been denounced by most Democrats and even has drawn the criticism of Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich.

But despite the attention politicians and pundits are giving Ryan’s plan, public views of it are virtually unchanged from late last month. Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters continue to favor Ryan’s budget proposal, while 34% are opposed to it. The plurality (40%) is not sure what they think of the plan. …”

Will ‘Watchdog’ Media Report on Obama’s Stealth Tax Hike?

By Lachlan Markay | May 23, 2011

“…New facts released by the office of House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., reveal a hidden tax increase in President Obama’s budget proposal. Obama’s plan would, these facts demonstrate, impose a 20 percent increase in the top income tax rate – a significantly greater increase than the president has admitted.

The news media fancies itself a watchdog, so if the president is going to dramatically hike taxes, one would hope that Americans would hear about it first. But thus far, there has been almost no coverage of these stealth tax hikes. On Monday, Washington Post fact-checker Greg Kessler confirmed the veracity of Ryan’s claims. Whether other major media outlets report on them will be the true test.

“…One other trend is that Americans are becoming more averse to partisan labels. While Republican affiliation has fallen by four points since 2005 to 25, and Democratic affiliation dropped by a point to 32 percent, the number of independents rose 7 point to 37 percent. (These numbers do not square with the ones in the chart because they reflect polling in the first quarter of 2011, and not annual averages used in the typology studies).

On the pivotal issue of the role of government, 96 percent of Staunch Conservatives and 74 percent of Main Street Republicans want a smaller government providing fewer services. Among Democrats, 53 percent of the Hard Pressed, 65 percent of New Coalitioners and 74 percent of Solid Liberals favor bigger government providing more services.

The majority of independents want smaller government, with 84 percent of Libertarians holding that view, far higher than the other independent “types.” …”

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.”
~Thomas Jefferson

The Republican Party establishment or political class in Washington D.C. is out of touch with the American people.

Many long time members of the conservative movement who in the past voted Republican, now consider themselves independents and support the tea party movement.

After twelve years of the Bushes with their wars,  unbalanced budgets, deficit spending, growing national debt and low economic growth rates, conservatives and libertarians concluded that the Republican Party was deeply penetrated by big government interventionist who in the past were called progressives and/or Rockefeller Republicans–and are now called country club Republicans or Republicans In Name Only–RINOS.

Smart and wise conservatives and libertarians recognized that the two-party system in the United States made it difficult if not impossible to win as a third-party candidate.

If you wanted to run for public office such as for Congress, the Senate or for President of the United States, you had no choice but to run on the Republican ticket.

This meant fighting the Republican establishment progressives or big government interventionists in primaries just to get on the ballot.

After the elections of 2006 and 2008, the Republican Party brand was damaged as both conservatives and libertarians left the Republican Party having concluded they were betrayed by the Republican Party establishment in Washington D.C.

Dan Mitchell, Cato Institute, Debt Ceiling

Rand Paul “Republicans & Democrats Have Been On A Drunken Spending Spree Up Here”

The tea party movement became the new home of both former Republicans and Democrats who strongly felt that their political parties had left them.

George Wallace, who was  elected Governor of Alabama four times and ran for President of the United States four times,  once said “There’s not a dimes worth of difference” between the Democratic and Republican Parties.

Wallace was echoing Huey Long who was a one-term Governor and one term Senator of  Louisiana before he was assassinated in September 1935:

With inflation the difference between the Republican Party proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2012 and  the Democratic Party or President Obama’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2012 has grown to about $200 billion.

Both the Republican and Democratic Party Fiscal Year 2012 budgets are massively unbalanced.

Both the Republican and Democratic Party Fiscal Year 2012 budgets run deficits of about $1,000 and $1,200 billion respectively and which in turn increases the National Debt by the same amount.

Both the Republican and Democratic Party Fiscal Year 2012 budgets are living beyond the means of the American people to pay for in taxes and are fiscally irresponsible.

Newt Gingrich, the Republican Party’s beaver puppet, to the tea party movement and American people was wrong when he labelled the Republican Party’s Fiscal Year 2012 budget of Paul Ryan “right-wing social engineering”.

The Paul Ryan and Republican Party budget is the social engineering of the Republican Party establishment in  that the budget protects the massively bloated bureaucracy and budget baseline.

Cutting the rate of growth in the budget baseline by over $6,000 billion sounds impressive but it really is only business as usual.

These so-called cuts are not real cuts or lower year to year budget outlays.

It’s Simple to Balance The Budget Without Higher Taxes

Tea party conservatives and libertarians are not asking, they are demanding massive cuts in the budget baseline or Federal Government spending and balanced budgets starting in Fiscal Year 2012.

Tea party conservatives and libertarians are insisting that eight to ten Federal Departments be closed permanently.

Tea party conservatives and libertarians are demanding these changes before the Republican establishment even mentions entitlement reforms to Social Security and Medicare.

If the tea party conservatives and libertarians do not get them, they will vote out of office any Republican or Democratic Representative and Senator who votes for an increase in the National Debt ceiling and the massively bloated Fiscal Year 2012 unbalanced budget.

The tea party movement is not falling for either  Newt Gingrich, The Beaver puppet of the Republican establishment, nor Paul Ryan’s twenty-five years to a balanced budget pathway to prosperity.

If the Republican Party establishment cannot balance the budget in Fiscal Year 2012 then the tea party movement will find people who will in future years.

Both the Democratic and Republican parties still do not get.

Both Senator Rand Paul and Ron Paul do get it as well as the urgency of the situation.

Rand Paul ‘It’s Amazing To Me To Be Lectured To Hear About How Awful The Tea Party Is’ 4/15/11

Neither Bill Bennet nor Mark Levin nor Rush Limbaugh are pointing out to the audiences that the Republican Party or Paul Ryan’s proposed budgets are massively out of balance and would not balance for over twenty-five years.

May I suggest these talk show hosts do their homework before singing the praises of Paul Ryan or criticising Newt Gingrich, who at least got it half right.

Ryan’s or the Republican Party’s proposed budgets are not courageous, serious or balanced–these budget are fiscally irresponsible and living way beyond the means of the American people.

The days or wine and roses are over.

Stop spending and start balancing the budget or you will be replaced.

The tea party movement will be replacing the current puppet in the White House in 2012 with a person who talks the talk and walks the walk–a fiscally responsible conservative or libertarian.

“If the practice persists of covering government deficits with the issue of notes, then the day will come without fail, sooner or later, when the monetary systems of those nations pursuing this course will break down completely. The purchasing power of the monetary unit will decline more and more, until finally it disappears completely.”

The tea party movement’s budget would require the Federal Government to have a balanced or surplus budget in every fiscal year starting in 2012 with a declining national debt starting in Fiscal Year 2017.

Neither the Republican nor Democratic Party is capable of living within the means of the American people.

The Republicans are proposing a budget for Fiscal Year 2012 of $3,618 billion compared with the President Obama’s $3,729 billion.

This results in a deficit of $995 billion for the Republican budget and $1,101 billion for President Obama’s budget.

As the above  tables clearly show, neither party is capable of balancing the budget in the next ten years.

The above budgets are needed to support a warfare and welfare economy with a collectivist state.

The above budgets are not a pathway to a peace and prosperity economy with a constitutional republic.

The budget needs to be balanced starting in fiscal year 2012 at $2,500 billion or less.

The tea party movement demands that from here on out that all budgets be either balanced or in surplus with no tax increases.

Before  either political party attempts to reform so-called entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid, the tea party movement demands that ten Federal Departments be permanently closed and the budgets of remaining Federal Departments be reduced by 25%.

I started a joke, which started the whole world crying,
But I didn’t see that the joke was on me, oh no.
I started to cry, which started the whole world laughing,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was on me. 

I looked at the skies, running my hands over my eyes,
And I fell out of bed, hurting my head from things that I’d said. 

Til I finally died, which started the whole world living,
Oh, if I’d only seen that the joke was on me.

American People Response

Ray Stevens – We The People

Bee Gees – Massachusetts 

Feel I’m going back to Massachusetts
Something’s telling me I must go home
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own 

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco
Gotta do the things I wanna do
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts
They brought me back to see my way with you 

Talk about the life in Massachusetts
Speak about the people I have seen
And the lights all went out in Massachusetts 

I will remember Massachusetts
I will remember Massachusetts  

We The People arrived at this moment due to massive Federal Government intervention into the economy with higher  taxes, spending, deficits, debts, bailouts and subsidies.  

Until entire Federal Departments are shut-down and closed permanently and a FairTax replaces all Federal taxes, neither political party is seriously fiscally responsible. 

The progressive radical socialists of both the Democratic and Republican parties are the problem and the cause of massive government intervention into the free market process and the result is the Obama Depression. 

The American people have had enough of the progressive radical socialist political class and elites in Washington D. C. 

President Obama arrogantly reading more lies and promises no longer inspires or impresses the American people. 

The American people no longer believe or trust President Obama. 

The American people know we are broke. 

The American people are marching and rising. 

The Second American Revolution has begun. 

Time to throw the tyrants out of office.

Federal Budget Deficit Will Reach Levels Never Seen Before in U.S.

The budget deficit is projected to grow to 18 percent of GDP by 2082 even if the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts are allowed to expire and the AMT is not fixed. This will be driven by entitlement spending for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, with deficits well above the 30-year historical average of 2.5 percent. Deficits of this size have never been seen in the U.S. and illustrate the need to reform these programs.

 Who does the political class in Washington D.C. think they are kidding talking about fiscal responsibility.

The political elites of both political parties in Washington D.C. are the most fiscally irresponsible in the entire history of the United States.

The professional politicians are lying and misleading the American people.

They have zero credibility. They are joke gone terrible bad.

You got to be kidding. They are all con men.

I for one am not buying into this play acting.

In early 2011 President Obama will rescind much of the 2011 and 2012 spending in the stimulus bill as not being needed as the economy recovers.

Why?

To be able to say that he has cut the deficits by 50% and stop the threat of increasing inflation.

To get to the 50% mark President Obama will drastically cut military spending just like President Clinton did.

When he runs again for President in 2012 Obama could then claim he is a fiscal responsible President.

In other words much of the stimulus spending now getting a lot the attention will be sacrificed for the greater good of an Obama second term.

Without having a line item veto, saying you will examine every item in a budget or bill is an exercise in reading not cutting spending.

Presidents submit budgets and Congress passes spending bills.

Presidents sign or veto bills not items in a bill.

Also, Social Security surpluses have been spent every year and are considered to be off budget and in eight years will be in deficit.

The perfect metaphor for Obama’s suck-up summit

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 23, 2009 05:18 PM

 

“…If you missed the media coverage of President Obama’s suck-up fiscal responsibility summit today, you are lucky.

It was nauseating.

Republicans including John McCain and Eric Cantor joined Democrat tax cheat Charlie Rangel and spendocrat Henry Waxman, along with Obama corrupto-cronies such as the SEIU’s Andy Stern in a boot-licking session with Dear Leader.

He gathered them all in a press conference setting and called on them as if they were journalistic stenographers.

Obama paid lip service to bipartisanship. They paid lip service to bipartisanship. Obama declared the need to fix health care. They declared the need to fix health care. Obama said we had budget problems. They nodded their heads and bemoaned our budget problems.

It was one big game of…”

Social Security

“…Social Security in the United States currently refers to the federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program.

The original Social Security Act[1] and the current version of the Act, as amended[2] encompass several social welfare or social insurance programs. The larger and better known initiatives of the program are:

  • Federal Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance
  • Unemployment benefits
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
  • Health Insurance for Aged and Disabled (Medicare)
  • Grants to States for Medical Assistance Programs (Medicaid)
  • State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

U.S. Social Security is a social insurance program funded through dedicated payroll taxes called Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA). Tax deposits are formally entrusted to[3] Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund, or Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund, Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund or the Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance Trust Fund. The main part of the program is sometimes abbreviated OASDI (Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance) or RSDI (Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance). When initially signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 as part of his New Deal, the term Social Security covered unemployment insurance as well. The term, in everyday speech, is used to refer only to the benefits for retirement, disability, survivorship, and death, which are the four main benefits provided by traditional private-sector pension plans. In 2004 the U.S. Social Security system paid out almost $500 billion in benefits.[4] By dollars paid, the U.S. Social Security program is the largest government program in the world and the single greatest expenditure in the federal budget, with 20.9% for social security and 20.4% for Medicare/Medicaid, compared to 20.1% for military expenditure. [5] Social Security is currently the largest social insurance program in the U.S., constituting 37% of government expenditure and 7% of the gross domestic product[6] and is currently estimated to keep roughly 40% of all Americans age 65 or older out of poverty.[7] The Social Security Administration is headquartered in Woodlawn, Maryland, just to the west of Baltimore.

Largely because of the rise of neoliberalism, Social Security privatization became a major political issue for more than three decades during the presidencies of Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. …”

United States budget process

“…The process of creating the budget for the United States Government is known as the budget process. The framework used by Congress to formulating the budget was established by the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921[1], the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974[2], and by other budget legislation.

Congressional consideration of the federal budget begins once the President of the United States submits a budget request, which is formulated over a period of months with the assistance of the Office of Management and Budget, the largest office within the Executive Office of the President. The budget request includes funding requests for all federal executive departments and independent agencies.

The President submits the budget request each year to Congress for the following fiscal year, as required by the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921. Current law (31 U.S.C. 1105(a))[3] requires the President to submit a budget no earlier than the first Monday in January, and no later than the first Monday in February. Typically, Presidents submit budgets on the first Monday in February.

The President’s budget request constitutes an extensive proposal of the administration’s intended spending and revenue plans for the following fiscal year. The budget proposal includes volumes of supporting information intended to persuade Congress of the necessity and value of the budget provisions. In addition, each federal executive department and independent agency provides additional detail and supporting documentation to Congress on its own funding requests.

The next step is the drafting of a budget resolution. The United States House Committee on the Budget and the United States Senate Committee on the Budget are responsible for drafting budget resolutions. Following the traditional calendar, by early April both committees finalize their drafts and submit it to their respective floors for consideration and adoption.

A budget resolution, which is one form of a concurrent resolution, binds Congress, but is not a law, and so does not require the President’s signature. The budget resolution serves as a blueprint for the actual appropriation process, and provides Congress with some control over the appropriations process. No new spending authority, however, is provided until appropriation bills are enacted.

Once both houses pass the resolution, selected Representatives and Senators negotiate a conference report to reconcile differences between the House and the Senate versions. The conference report, in order to become binding, must be approved by both the House and Senate.

The federal government’s fiscal year currently begins on October 1st and ends on September 30th of the next calendar year. The federal fiscal year’s starting date was shifted from July 1 to October 1 in 1976. The period between the end of FY1976 and the start of FY1977 was called the Transition Quarter. An earlier shift in the U.S. government’s fiscal year was made in the 1850s. …”

“…

In general, funds for Federal Government programs must be authorized by an “authorizing committee” through enactment of legislation. Then, through subsequent acts by Congress, budget authority is then appropriated by the Appropriations Committees of the House and Senate. In principle, committees with jurisdiction to authorize programs make policy decisions, while the Appropriations Committees decide on funding levels, limited to a program’s authorized funding level, though the amount may be any amount less than the limit.

In practice, the separation between policy making and funding, and the division between appropriations and authorization activities are imperfect. Authorizations for many programs have long lapsed, yet still receive appropriated amounts. Other programs that are authorized receive no funds at all.[citation needed] In addition, policy language — that is legislative text changing permanent law — is included in appropriation measures. …”

Madoff Is a Piker

by John Stossel

“…But Madoff’s scam was small compared to Ponzi schemes the government itself runs: Social Security and Medicare.

By now we all know the government does not invest our payroll taxes and pay our benefits with the profits our money earns. In the beginning, writes economic historian Charlotte Twight in “Dependent on D.C.”, Americans were told Social Security was an insurance program. But the government was unable to sustain that bald lie.

In reality, our money, rather than being invested and kept in an actual “trust fund,” is immediately given to current retirees in Social Security benefits or to their healthcare providers in Medicare benefits. The government’s promise to pay for your retirement pension and medical care is just a promise. And a lie.

In theory, the promise could be kept by raising taxes on future workers, but there won’t be enough of them. Changing demographics are destroying the programs. A large working class can support a relatively small retired class, especially when life expectancy is 61 years and benefits don’t begin until 65. That’s how things were in the early years of Social Security. But when life expectancy grows to 80 and a large generational group — the baby boomers — retires expecting to be supported by a far smaller working class, that’s trouble. …”
