Well looks like the Democrats once again in DC have decided that against the nation's wishes for more taxes, that they have done just that will raise your taxes by over a trillion dollars in a budget proposal that Never balances, never lowers the debt, perpetually raises the debt. If you are an intellectually honest and politically savy individual, then no matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, you will (A) Be pissed at your taxes going up (B) Know that the wealthy will NOT be paying the majority of these tax increases but it will be people like you and me. So I hope you Democrat lovers are happy once again with your peeps in D.C.

What a surprise... in almost every category, the Democrats want to spend more, more, more. Even then, the numbers in many categories were much closer than I am comfortable with.

One category that particularly rubs me the wrong way is the foreign aid... way too much on both sides. Face the truth... most foreign countries hate the US... they take our money because they get a nice juicy handout while crippling the people they hate... double gratification.

The USA should cut off all monetary aid... cold-turkey... then only give emergency aid such as food and medical supplies as needed. It's time to quit sticking our country's hand out there so that our enemies can gnaw it off.

I'm all for isolationism. But, looking at the provided link, all I can see is national stuff-o-rama. And the differences are sparse,(considering everyone up there has a money tree). I like how the republicans are careful to match the dem's spending on social security and veteran's affairs. Only a 70 billion difference in foreign aid,(because, who really cares if the rest of the world crumbles around us, or with us...). The only thing the reps spend more on is defense, even though I feel pretty cozy and safe. And honestly, I love the 180 billion difference in community and regional development,(I'm pretty sure that's us, hurhurhurp).
My conclusion becomes this: If we're going to be number 1, USA!, USA!, USA!, then it takes money to make money... oh, economics! And those dirty democrats trying to protect the rich. Yeah. That's totally their bailiwick. Man, when everything I write is sarcastic, it's hard to be coherent. Tax the rich! Save the poor,(we)! All for one and one for all! Blah, blah, blah, basically. Cries for deaf ears...

I'm all for bailouts. Obama bailed out GM to the tune of 50 billion dollars. Look it up, seven out of ten GM products are made in a foreign country. If you drive a GM product check and see where it is made. If the VIN begins with a 1, 4 or 5 it is made in America. If it begins with a 2, Canada or 3 for Mexico. One thing for sure enviromentalists and liberals don't want factories in America.

Thank you Bill for NAFTA. Clean air and water and no jobs.

Raise taxes to feed the Mexicans!

The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.

“USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page.“Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”

The partnership — which was signed by former USDA Secretary Ann M. Veneman and Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Ernesto Derbez Bautista in 2004 — sees to it that the Mexican Embassy and Mexican consulates in America provide USDA nutrition assistance program information to Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals working in America and migrant communities in America. The information is specifically focused on eligibility criteria and access.

The goal, for USDA, is to get rid of what they see as enrollment obstacles and increase access among potentially eligible populations by working with arms of the Mexican government in America.

Some of the materials the USDA encourages the Mexican government to use to educate and promote the benefit programs are available free online for order and download.

A partial list of materials include English and Spanish brochures titled “Five Easy Steps To Snap Benefits,”“How To Get Food Help — A Consumer’s Guide to FNCS Programs,”“Ending Hunger Improving Nutrition Combating Obesity,” and posters with slogans like “Food Stamps Make America Stronger.”

Tax Americans and feed the world.

The Daily Caller is brought to us by Tucker Carlson aka Andrew Breitbart follower, who has made their money on sensationalism.

Good grief try to find something a little more reliable, like the National Enquirer.

Just because FOX gives Tucker a seat on the 'Fox and Friends' couch does not make his reporting legit. Just last week Bill O'Reilley had to run a disclaimer on Tucker's (Menendez) story. The District of Columbia police busted a lawyer AND 2 hookers on Tucker's 'Menendez' story & traced it right back to the Daily Callers check book.

Of Course the only Senator with the Brass Balls to pull off a nearly 13 hour filibuster that exposed and shredded the anti-privacy policies of the last 12 years also came up with the Only Budget that Balances, eliminates unconstitutional bureacracies, etc. And the Senate voted it down. Why? because it took money away from the government and gave it back to the private sector that actually makes the money.

You can see his budget proposal here.

Who would you rather spend your money? You? or the Government that didn't earn it? Its a simple concept really!!

Oh Im sorry nasty tobacco spit, did you have something intelligent to add to this pretty serious topic, or did you just have some verbal diarrhea to spill over from your mouth on to topix here? Im sorry if you are offended but Im offended that people don't seem to care about how much of their money they make goes to the most immoral to the most inhumane causes in this country and abroad and then some have the nerve to turn around and say that the government needs even more of our hard earned money.

I'm sorry who is the "our" in the last line of your paragraph aren't you unemployed? How do you earn any money? If you don't pay taxes why the hell are you even concerned about what the govt does with it? Do you even vote?

A little... too simple. This being such a complicated matter, and all. Stop spending... sit... a wait for natural selection? Tempting. But, this being America, and all... and lamenting the failure of the 2nd bill of rights... is this really the time to say,["Every man for himself, nice guys finish last, now is the hour of our discontent, ADRIAN!!!"]? Or can we just sit... and wait for natural selection in a different spectrum?

an idiot and embarassed us all. If he didn't have good sense enough to know that Obama or any other president wouldn't use a drone to kill a 'NON COMBATIVE' US citizen, he should've just asked a 5th grader.

Then he grinned like a beaver when he got a ONE PARAGRAPH letter from the Justice Dept telling him what everybody else already knew.

And you're more retarded than he is if you've picked him to be your leader!

You seriously going to take for granted or even trust a government to have your best interests at heart when they have racked up 16 trillion dollars in debt, sanctioned the slaughter of over 55 million unborn babies in the last 40 years and you are just going to trust that without having said as much that the government would not drone a "non combative" US Citizen on American Soil?? You are part of the problem that this Nation faces because you live with your head in the sand and refuse to see the tyranny that is before you due to your cowardice and your need to deny the fear that forces you to your knees before King Obama.

I'm not exactly a Rand Paul fan, but he gained major points with the filibuster. No one I know, except you, are naive enough to think Obama doesn't believe it's Ok to do whatever he wants!

Well it's true Obama can act in good faith to defend our country without time for approval from congress in a time of attack.

Now that was brought to us courtesy of the Bush/Cheney generation & the form of the 'Patriot Act'.

You know the Patriot Act? The one where they can wire tap your phone or computer, you can be listed as a 'person of interest' & not know it. The one where the president can send a drone to kill someone he conceives as a threat to the US? That kind of thing.

Right about the same time Bush/Cheney got their own private army 'Homeland Security'. ALL of the US Armed Forces can be instructed to follow Homeland Security's command at the President's leisure.

That makes Homeland Security the largest government run agency ever in existence. It costs since conception 1 TRILLION DOLLARS a year since 2002. So that was 11 years ago, so if my math is correct they have racked up 11 TRILLION DOLLARS of NATIONAL DEBT.

hum, amazed Ron Paul didn't have the same questions.

Democrats raise your taxes again... to try and fix the dilemmas of which the Republicans think falls out of the sky.

Freeeeeeedooooooom!

It takes money to make money. Something I thought all conservatives understood. What do I know, though... I'm just a janitor. Investments are outrageous this day and age. Guess I'll just have to lick the boot of the fortunate sons.

Or start a business...

With old money...

From the folks...

'cause dependency is for the weak...

...and I'm super independent...

...I'm changing my tag to 'Captain Success'...

Tax the rich! Carry on.
