This video from the John K. MacIver Institute for Public Policy shows something every American needs to see: in addition to the teachers and other union members who have been refusing to do their jobs in lieu of protesting fiscal responsibility in Wisconsin, we also have on video doctors who are writing fraudulent “sick notes” for people to give to their employers. These notes claim the person was too sick to work when in fact they were out protesting at the capitol. Couldn’t doctors lose their medical license for signing fraudulent documents?
It’s important that we know who it is we’re dealin with in political confrontations across America. We knew the union maggots were out in force in Wisconsin trying to squeeze more loot out of the Wisconsin taxpayer, and when you have union true believers, you probably have unabashed socialists. This video shows that this is exactly what we’re dealing with in Wisconsin: socialists who want revolution.
In a letter dated Feb. 18 2011, CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf told Speaker of the House John Boehner we could save about $1.4 TRILLION by repealing the unconstitutional ObamaCare scheme. We could also save ourselves from half a trillion dollars in new taxes. It’s time to kill this unconstitutional scheme with extreme prejudice.
Taxes are to government as calories are to people. Lots of tax money is necessary to sustain a big government. When the government requires more of our money in taxes, less is available for the people. And as government grows bigger and bigger on a steady diet of tax money, it occupies a bigger and bigger presence in the lives of its citizens, thereby limiting their freedom even more.
The elephant in the room are entitlements – Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. These now total up to $1.6 trillion in spending, or about 45% of the federal budget. The $1.6 trillion is projected to double over next ten years. We simply can’t meet these obligations. Polling indicates Americans don’t want these programs cut, but when problem is redefined to fundamentally change the way we do these things, polls show openness to change.
