The Obama Administration will adjust it’s 10 year deficity projection upward by about 2 TRILLION DOLLARS this coming week. Wow, now that’s what I call an adjustment. I’m still trying to adjust to thinking in terms of trillions of dollars. They now say that the budget deficit will be somewhere around 7 to 9 TRILLION DOLLARS over the next 10 years. On the up side, if I spend a little too much, I can always tell my husband, “Look honey, it could be worse, I could be spending money like Congress.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that they really don’t know what the deficit will be. They haven’t the foggiest notion of what a government health reform package will cost. And-let’s not forget that they blew the budget projection on a little 2 month project called Cash for Clunkers by 200%. A project which, by the way, despite the added 2 Billion Dollars still did not fund the project for the length of time that it was supposed to.
I say, let’s cut the purse strings. If we don’t want our country to implode under the tremendous weight of debt, we have to do a few things now.
- If you aren’t already doing so, pray that God gives our leaders some wisdom.
- Get involved. Hold Congress’s feet to the fire on spending.
- Vote out anyone who isn’t fiscally responsible.
Let’s get busy!
