Federal Spending by the Numbers

Read it and weep, especially if you have children.

Don’t Read The Whole Thing

Just read this one paragraph:

Mr. Walker identifies the disease as having a basic cause: “Washington is totally out of touch and out of control,” he sighs. “There is political courage there, but there is far more political careerism and people dodging real solutions.” He identifies entrenched incumbency as a real obstacle to change. “Members of Congress ensure they have gerrymandered seats where they pick the voters rather than the voters picking them and then they pass out money to special interests who then make sure they have so much money that no one can easily challenge them,” he laments. He believes gerrymandering should be curbed and term limits imposed if for no other reason than to inject some new blood into the system. On campaign finance, he supports a narrow constitutional amendment that would bar congressional candidates from accepting contributions from people who can’t vote for them: “If people can’t vote in a district not their own, should we allow them to spend unlimited money on behalf of someone across the country?”

Just kidding, read the whole thing.

The Grand Unification Theory of Sucking

Vodkapundit, the New York Times, Matt Drudge and the Three Stooges show us why “The Obama people are the ones making it worse, those stupid idiot dumb-dumbs.”

How you gonna pay for that?

For months now I have been asking (rhetorically) Mr. 0bama “How you gonna pay for that?”  every time he goes on TV and announces more federal spending.

Well now we know.

“We’re out of money”

Somehow lack of a national health care plan caused 0bama’s 3 trillion dollar deficit:

OBAMA: Well, we are out of money now. We are operating in deep deficits, not caused by any decisions we’ve made on health care so far. This is a consequence of the crisis that we’ve seen and in fact our failure to make some good decisions on health care over the last several decades.

Instapundit:

So we’re out of money because we don’t have national health care? Bogus. I think, instead, that it has something to do with the fact that Obama has been pouring money down a crony-statist rathole at absolutely astronomical and unprecedented rates. Yep, here’s that graphic again. Note that it doesn’t support Obama’s claim at all — but it does support mine.

“I’ve bankrupted the nation, so now your only hope is to pass my healthcare plan.” That goes beyond chutzpah to the edge of pathological dishonesty. Except, I guess, that it’s not pathological if you get away with it. And so far, he has.

Instapundit and I Agree with 0bama

President Barack Obama, calling current deficit spending “unsustainable,” warned of skyrocketing interest rates for consumers if the U.S. continues to finance government by borrowing from other countries.

No shit, Sherlock
