Budget Porn
By James Wilson

Quote of the Day: "The difference between death and taxes is death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets." -- Will Rogers (1879-1935) American humorist

Subject: Budget Porn

The federal government has been doing so well at so many things, such as protecting people from scam artists like Bernie Madoff, that President Obama thinks it can now take responsibility for all areas of human life. The President's new budget will . . .

  • Expand federal control of your health care
  • Expand federal control of your energy supply through "cap and trade"
  • Help distressed home owners
  • Monitor every morsel of food produced in America, as it moves from the ground to your kitchen
  • Involve the federal government in "charity" through a national system of "public service" that may become mandatory for young people
  • Expand federal involvement in education through a system of universal pre-kindergarten

Health care, energy, housing, food, charity, education -- that's EVERYTHING!

It gets worse.

The President brags about making the budget more honest, but his budget is deeply deceptive . . .

Both numbers are far too high, and the real number is likely to be even larger. Does anyone really think the politicians will be satisfied with the thrill they get from just one year of budget-porn? Of course not. Like all good junkies they'll want more and more and more.

But the fix they want today is already an overdose.

The CBO estimates that by 2019 the national debt will rise to 82% of the U.S. economy, at a time when the massive unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare will also be taking a huge toll.

But it gets even worse. Congressional Democrats don't want the Republican opposition to block their grand plans for re-engineering every aspect of American life, so they're threatening to use a special procedure, called reconciliation, to pass the budget with only 50 votes in the Senate.

Will you bow to this massive expansion of government power by remaining silent, or will you withdraw your consent?

The politicians expect you to be a compliant sucker. Disappoint them. The budget vote will happen this week. ACT NOW!

Please use our quick and easy Educate the Powerful System and our "cut spending" campaign to tell your elected representatives to reject the Obama budget.

Use your personal comments to tell them to vote NO on any budget authorizing federalized health care, the "cap and trade" boondoggle, the food tracking boondoggle, the "public service" boondoggle, and universal pre-kindergarten. Tell them to also oppose the 50-vote reconciliation procedure.

Ask your friends to do the same.

Thanks for being a part of the growing Downsize DC Army.
