If I had been given a chance to ask President Obama a question today I would
have said; Mr. President thank you for addressing the media. The OMB predicts
that the United States will spend 1.25 trillion more than it collects in tax
money this year. The national long term debt is on track to pass the 16 trillion
dollar mark sometime this year.
Last year the interest on the long term debt was just over 454 billion
dollars. It appears it will be near that number again this year. The buzz phrase
is that the United States is borrowing 4 cents in every 10 cents we spend.
With all this grim news, I have not heard of one department that has cut
expenses, we just sent an experimental rocket launched from
a B52 who most say cost hundreds of millions only to see it crash
in the sea as expected.
The energy department, and education department plus the
department of defense continues to spend and hire as if we were in a
booming economy. The agriculture department's budget will be close to 1
billion dollars with at least 900 billion of those monies directed toward food
stamps. In fact they have aired radio commercials encouraging people to make
sure they get their share of food stamps.
Mr. President, I am sorry I had to point out all this grim economic news to
get to my question. My question, President Obama can you name any federal
agencies that have had their budget's reduced in view of the tepid
recovery we are in?
Simply put Mr. President has the taxpayer supported
government reduced any department expense, during this crisis? Mr. President if
you want to get back to me I will be pleased to share the expense cuts with my
audience. In Fact,,,,,,,,,
