OPM: OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY!!!!!
The Obama administration spends and spends and spends. The Obama administration borrows and borrows and borrows to spend more. Why? Because it’s not Obama’s money being spent. It’s your money.
Obama’s not on the hook to pay back the loans. YOU and your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are going to be dinged for the debts that the profligate Obama administration has run up.
No business would ever hire a “nonessential employee.” That’s a no-brainer. Would you hire a nonessential employee and pay him with your own money?
Our government apparently hires and pays hundreds of thousands of nonessential employees. This, we’ve learned from the government shutdown. How much do you miss them? Enough to keep your descendants in debt for generations?
What’s a nonessential government employee, anyway? If the job is nonessential, then it should be cut, as Obama promised to do when, during his first campaign over 5 years ago, he promised to go through the budget “line by line” and cut waste.
Can our debt-ridden government afford even one nonessential employee?
Every job, every department, every program should be essential, or else it should not exist.
Ted Cruz and his Tea Party cohorts, who are trying to bring fiscal sanity to our government, may have lost this particular battle; however, they haven’t yet lost the war.
Come next year, We the People of the United States of America must elect more fiscal conservatives–constitutional conservatives–to BOTH houses of Congress.
Raising the debt limit time and again is no way to run a government. If you had maxed out your own credit card, what would you do?
(1) Cut back on nonessentials and live within your means, OR
(2) beg (nay, threaten) the credit card company to raise your credit limit yet again, with no end in sight and no sign of any intention to pay back the overwhelming debt that you’ve already incurred?
If the Harry Reid “compromise” gets through, then all nonessentials will soon be reporting for “duty”. The National Park Service can remove the Barrycades. In the meantime, Speaker Boehner should have more time to spend with his family.
