Mark Levin Interviews Jim Demint – I’m Not Encouraged By Whats Going On In Washington Right Now

The tea party movement has been betrayed by the Republican Party establishment leadership including John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan.

The big dirty secret the the ruling class in Washington D.C. do not want the American people to know is the Fiscal Year 2012 budget will be in deficit my about $1,000 billion.

This is not fiscally responsible nor is it a “balance approach”.

The Democratic and Republican Establishment aka the “ruling class” are addicted in spending money the American people do not have on things the American people do not need.

They try to fool the American people with phoney cuts in the growth of the current services baseline budget by emphasing trillion dollar “cuts” over a ten year budget timeframe.

There are never any cuts in the current service baseline budget only cuts in the growth rates over ten years of the budget baseline.

The American people are not fooled by this nonsense and rubbish.

The only year that counts is Fiscal Year 2012 that starts October 1, 2011 and ends September 30, 2012.

The only cuts that are real are actual cuts in the budget baseline itself and not cuts in the rate of growth of that baseline.

Dan Mitchell Exposing DC’s Fake Spending-Cut Scam with Judge Napolitano

It’s Simple to Balance The Budget Without Higher Taxes

Stop budgeting to the current services budget baseline and budget to estimated tax revenue collections.

Stop closed door deals, commissions, select committees and gangs.

Stop lying and misleading the American people.

Vote against any budget that is not balanced.

Vote against any increase in the National Debt ceiling.

Vote for closing permanently Government Departments, Agenices and hundreds of programs.

Vote for cutting the Budget Baseline not for cutting the rate of growth of the Budget Baseline!

Vote for the FairTax. The political ruling class is bought and paid for and are wrecking the economy, detroying jobs and killing the American Dream.

The American people will eventually learn the secret and that both political parties have been lying to them.

A plague on both political parties. Both parties are responsible for the bloated budgets and massive deficits.

Let the party establishments clean their own mess up. The Democratic and Republican Party establishments simply do not give a flip about the American people.

Suggest you listen to the late George Carlin.

Peter Ferrara’s Too-Nice Attack on Phony Washington Budget Deals

Posted by Daniel J. Mitchell

“…Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Peter Ferrara of the Institute for Policy Innovation explains that Washington budget deals don’t workbecause politicians never follow through on promised spending cuts. This is a very relevant argument, since President Obama’s so-called Deficit Reduction Commission supposedly is considering a deal featuring $3 of spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases (disturbingly reminiscent of what was promised — but never delivered — as part of the infamous 1982 TEFRA budget scam).

Washington’s traditional approach to balancing the budget is to negotiate an agreement on a package of benefit cuts and tax increases. President Obama’s deficit commission seems likely to recommend just this strategy in December. The problem is that it never works. What happens is the tax increases get permanently adopted into law. But the spending cuts are almost never fully adopted and, even if they are, they are soon swept away in the next spendthrift budget. Then — because taxes weaken incentives to produce — the tax increases don’t raise the revenue that Congress initially projected and budgeted to spend. So the deficit reappears. In 1982, congressional Democrats promised President Ronald Reagan $3 in spending cuts for every dollar in tax increases. Reagan went to his grave waiting for those spending cuts. Then there was the budget deal in 1990, when President George H.W. Bush agreed to violate his famous campaign pledge — “Read my lips, no new taxes,” he had said in 1988 — in pursuit of a balanced budget. But after the deal, the deficit increased substantially: to $290 billion in 1992 from $221 billion in 1990.

As the excerpt indicates, Peter’s column is solid and everything he writes is correct, but it suffers from one major sin of omission. He should have exposed the dishonest practice of using “current services” or “baseline” budgeting. This is the clever Washington practice of assuming that all previously planned spending increases should go into effect and categorizing any budget that increases spending by a lower amount as a spending cut. In other words, if the hypothetical “baseline” budget increases by 7 percent, and a budget is proposed that increases spending by 4 percent, that 4 percent spending increase magically gets transformed into a 3 percent spending cut. Politicians love “current services” or “baseline” budgeting for two reasons. First, it allows them to have their cake and eat it too. They can simultaneously shovel more money to interest groups while telling voters they are “cutting” spending. Second, it rigs the process in favor of bigger government. This is because lawmakers who actually propose to restrain the growth of spending can be lambasted for wanting “savage” and “draconian” budget cuts totaling “trillions of dollars” when all they’re actually proposing is to have spending grow by less than the so-called baseline. But since people in the real world use honest math rather than “current services” math, they assume that spending is being reduced next year by some large amount compared to what is being spent this year. And if the phony budget cut numbers sound too big (especially for specific programs such as Medicare or Medicaid), they sometimes conclude that it would be better to raise taxes. Speaking of which, the same misleading process works on the revenue side of the budget. The politicians automatically get to keep whatever additional revenue is generated by population growth and higher incomes, which is not trivial since revenue in a typical year grows faster than nominal GDP. But when they do a budget deal featuring X dollars of tax increases for every Y dollars of spending cuts, the additional taxes are always on top of the revenue increases that already are occurring. And since the supposed spending cuts invariably are nothing more than reductions in planned increases, it should come as no surprise that the burden of spending always seems to increase. …”
