“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

George H W Bush read my lips

Boehner on GMA: To Create Jobs, Let’s Cut Spending & Stop The Tax Hike — Now

The Republican Party establishment still does not get it nor are they listening to the tea party movement or the American people.

The tea party movement is being betrayed by the Republican Party establishment in Washington D.C. by Senators Toomey, Lee, Rubio and DeMint and House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan.

Senator Paul’s proposed a  budget that would be balanced in five years, Fiscal Year 2016; it was defeated in the Senate by a 90 to 7 vote.

Senator Toomey’s proposed a budget that would be balanced in nine years, Fiscal Year 2020; it was defeated in the Senate by a 55 to 42 vote.

Representative Paul Ryan’s proposed a budget that would be balanced in the late 2030s; it was defeated in the Senate by a 57 to 40 vote.

President Obama’s proposed a  budget that would never be balanced; it was defeated in the Senate by a 97-0 vote.

So much for fiscal responsibility and balanced budgets.

Keep in mind that not one single proposed budget is balanced for Fiscal Year 2012.

All of the above proposed budgets would add between $500 billion to over $1,000 billion to the National Debt for Fiscal Year 2012 alone.

Clueless and in denial does not even begin to describe how reckless and irresponsible these people are.

The American people deserve better.

Starting this year, all fiscal year budgets from here on out must be balanced by cutting spending outlays including the closing of Federal Departments.

Taking five, ten or even twenty-five years to balance the budget is simply neither serious nor fiscally responsible.

Gentlemen, your plans do not live within the means of the American people.

Gentlemen, your plans are fiscally irresponsible and your budgets are massively unbalanced.

Gentlemen, your plans would increase the National Debt by several trillion dollars over the next ten years.

Gentlemen, your plans would not get the American economy on a high growth path needed to create over 30 million new full-time jobs that are needed now and not in ten years.

Gentlemen, your plan is a disappointment and a disgrace.

Stop protecting the Congressional Budget Office’s budget baseline and in turn the Federal Government Departments, and start balancing the budget in Fiscal Year 2012 by permanently closing Federal Departments, agencies and programs.

My sincere congratulations to the Republican Party establishment in Washington D.C., you are repeating the mistakes that led to the Republican Party losses in 2006 and 2008.

Only Senator Rand Paul’s proposed Fiscal Year 2012 Budget proposal comes close to understanding the scope and urgency of the fiscal crisis.

Unfortunately, the Federal Government does not have the luxury of waiting five years to balance the budget.

In less than three years the economy will be in another recession as a direct result of Congress not balancing the budget in a timely manner.

By then the credit rating agencies will have downgraded Treasury debt and interest rates will be significantly higher making matters even worse.

Any Senator or Representative that votes for either Senator Toomey’s or Representative Ryan’s plan deserves to be defeated in the next election.

Budget to the estimated tax revenues not the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) budget baseline.

Streamline the Federal Government by closing ten Federal Departments.

Cap the National Debt Limit at $15,000 billion and start paying off the National debt within five years.

Cut the budgets of the remaining Departments including the Department of Defense by 20% and total compensation for all Government employees by 20%.

Pass the FairTax with a 25% (excluding the tax) or 20% (including the tax) national retail sales consumption tax on the sale of new goods and services to replace all Federal taxes.

The United States of America needs to return a peace and prosperity economy with a constitutional republic that is limited in both size and scope.

The United States of America needs to abandon the warfare and welfare economy with a collectivist state that is not limited in either size or scope.

The American people want a choice not an echo of President Obama’s Democratic Party Fiscal 2012 budget proposal.

Gentleman, back to the drawing boards–start cutting and balancing–earn you pay.

It’s Simple to Balance The Budget Without Higher Taxes

Government is the Problem – Reagan

“…The system of banking we have both equally and ever reprobated. I contemplate it as a blot left in all our constitutions, which, if not covered, will end in their destruction, which is already hit by the gamblers in corruption, and is sweeping away in its progress the fortunes and morals of our citizens. Funding I consider as limited, rightfully, to a redemption of the debt within the lives of a majority of the generation contracting it; every generation coming equally, by the laws of the Creator of the world, to the free possession of the earth he made for their subsistence, unencumbered by their predecessors, who, like them, were but tenants for life…
And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and that the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large-scale. …”

For a history of the Federal Government’s Receipts (Revenues), Outlays, and Deficits and Surpluses

Senate votes down controversial House budget

“…Joined by several moderate Republicans, Democrats controlling the Senate rejected a controversial House budget plan for turning Medicare into a voucher-like program for future beneficiaries.

Five Republicans joined every Democrat in the 57-40 vote killing the measure, which calls for transforming Medicare into a program in which future beneficiaries _ people now 54 years old and younger _ would be given a subsidy to purchase health insurance rather than have the government directly pay hospital and doctor bills.

Democrats said the GOP plan would “end Medicare as we know it,” and they made it the central issue in a special election Tuesday in which Democrats seized a longtime GOP district in western New York, rattling Republicans.

Among the moderate Republicans that opposed the stringent House plan were Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Tea-party favorite Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky opposed plan from the right since it doesn’t actually balance and would add trillions of dollars to the U.S. debt. …”

“…Republicans have been blasting Democrats on a daily basis for their failure to produce a budget, saying they’re failing to live up to their responsibility as the Senate’s majority party.

“At a moment when our debts and deficits threaten the very future of our nation, Democrats have no excuse for proposing no vision of their own,” said Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

The top Republican on the Budget panel, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, hasn’t offered an alternative, either, though conservative Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Paul offered stringent plans that would bring the budget into balance.

Toomey’s plan would have produced a balanced budget by 2020 and received 42 GOP votes.

Paul offered a budget that he said would produce a surplus by 2016 by eliminating four Cabinet departments, aid to Israel, and a wide variety of programs for the poor. It failed by a 90-7 vote. …”

Senate votes down Toomey’s budget plan

“…Sen. Pat Toomey’s proposal to balance the budget in nine years was defeated in the Senate today, though his plan proved to be the most popular budget rendition to hit the floor.

By design, all four votes failed as bipartisan budget talks continue. Mr. Toomey, who serves on the Budget Committee, drafted a plan that earned all but three Republican votes but not a single Democrat, falling 42-55.

In his early months on the job Mr. Toomey has quickly positioned himself as a key conservative voice on fiscal matters.

“He has worked as hard or harder than maybe anybody on the committee,” the top Budget Committee Republican, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, said on the Senate floor after Mr. Toomey spoke about his bill.

The plan would produce a small surplus by its tenth year through $4.2 trillion in savings from Congressional Budget Office projections of current policy, with no increases in revenue as a percentage of the economy. It avoids the politically perilous changes to Medicare in the House Republican budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, which got two fewer votes than the Toomey plan Wednesday.

Mr. Toomey vocally supported and voted for Mr. Ryan’s plan to turn the seniors’ health insurance program into a voucher-like system, but those changes would be incorporated more than a decade down the road, while Mr. Toomey said his budget is focused on more immediate goals.

“I’m introducing an alternative budget because I want to focus the nearer term,” he said in a floor speech. “My focus is just these next 10 years, because I think we’ve got a crisis staring us right in the face and we’ve got to deal with it now.” …”
