US Budget, Republicans, Democrats and the Tea party - They still don’t get it.
You can cut the budget all you want but when America is out of work due to outsourcing there is never going to be any increase of income in the Treasury as unemployed workers pay no income taxes.At some point cutting and cutting and cutting the budget even more will result in opening the refrigerator door and finding it nearly empty much like some families do every day.
The only way to get ourselves out of this mess is to go back to fair trade, what that means is no more than 50% of any one item can be made outside of the US borders, the remaining 50% must be made in the USA as it once was.
Putting Americans back to work by eliminating unfair trade practices, rigged currency exchange rates and lopsided tariffs in favor of foreign government imports is the only long term solution to the predicament we have got ourselves into.
Go into a store and look at all the goods “Not Made in America” and you see all the people who lost their jobs over the years and the taxes they could have paid, all the money that could have stayed in the US and not into a foreign country’s bank vault, like Communist China for example who then loans our own money back to us for a fee.
Help put America back to work, write Congress and tell them smell the roses instead of squabbling like a bunch of school kids over the last candy bar.
