Congresswoman Louise Slaughter says the contract is worth $140 million over two years. No problem. We will just raise the debt ceiling to 50 trillion. Louise will be dead by the time the whole thing comes crashing down. Its debt to infinity.

the "other" side of this is; Harris employs a lot of people in Rochester and around the world.
If they didn't get it, some other defense electronic firm would.
Glad it stayed stateside.

We need to go in debt more to employ workers? This is good? So does the US Airforce, Army and Navey employ lots of people so when does the spending stop? A fiancial collapse? Then 60% will have no job and that may be conseratitive. We need to raise the debt ceiling to pay our bill? We need to stop spening money we do not have. The the Fed prints money out of thin air to pay for it.

JOhn,
I hardly think this contract is reason to buy a truckload of TP and barricade the root cellar door.
Get a grip, man.
We need the dollars right here, in Rochester, so chill.
Go get a latte.

We could save money by equiping our military with styrofoam cups and string for communications gear.
Maybe we should cut back on paying people Not to work and we should stop making policies that send jobs over seas.

The economy would be fixed if we brought 1/2 of the jobs back home.
Let the 3rd worlders keep our lead smelting and composting.

If the American people knew how many of the soldiers that get deployed during the Iraq and Afghan war NEVER LEFT THE SAFE ZONE, or did anything at all while being deployed there ... they would be outraged by the sheer waste of government dollars!!!

Having seen it first hand, we are wasting the money we borrow!

We could cut the military in half and take all our troups stationed in 100 countries home and mind our own business. Stop the sensless wars of agression all over the world pissing off counteries. We soon will be forced to cut the military because our money will be worthless. Keep counterfieting trillions and it will not end well for the USA or the Dollar.

Good point. Where will all those soldiers work? Our Gubment will have to create a war for them? We could use the soldiers to secure our borders though.

we've been fighting the "war on drugs" with our military with no results for decades, by design.
if there wasn't any drug problem, what do you suppose would happen to the HUGE DEA budgets?
or the "special ops" guys that drop in for a coca leaf now and then in Colombia and Peru?
or the huge "just say no" program in the US?
we can't afford people to NOT do drugs.
just like NYS can't afford everyone to NOT smoke cigs.
it's all a f*kn joke.

The spending will stop one way or another. Its called a depression/financial collapse and it will happen if we keep spending money we do not have and printing trillions out of thin air. Soon all those soldiers will be out of work. The dollar will crash. QE to infinity. Its not backed by gold its backed by paper.

Sure, like the $500 hammers they bought.

500 toilet seats as well. I have not mentioned the 50 billion in aid we give to countries around the world that burn our flag and chant down with America. No problem. We just raise the debt ceiling and print more money to give it away. The insanity is out of control.
