I for one keep hearing about this "fiscal cliff" we will go over if the Gov. does not come to agreements on what to do. The fiscal cliff shouts out these horrors will occur if the Gov. does not print more money...
(About $110 billion in spending cuts divided equally between the military and most other federal departments. That’s about 8% of their annual budgets, 9% for the Pentagon.Hitting the national economy with that double whammy of tax increases and spending cuts is what’s called going over the fiscal cliff. If allowed to unfold over 2013, it would lead to recession, a big jump in unemployment and financial market turmoil, economists predict.)
I for one hope we go over this cliff with epic speed! The fact is we all have a budget, we live everyday making choices to not buy this and to suffer with that (Example: I want a backhoe but cant afford one, I want to eat to tenderloin with asparagus and baked potato once per week, I want my daughter to go to Harvard and I also want to simply turn the dial on the wall when i need heat)...the fact is I dont do these things because I cant afford them!!!
The Gov. apparently does not have this problem because they just print more money as they need it (like friggin' counterfeiters) or the borrow money from China (who will gladly enjoy owning our fine country someday). Its absolute BS!
I want to hit this cliff... I want our Military to come home if we cant afford to take care of and protect every other country in the world (and clearly we CANT at this point), I want the fed employee's to be layed off and forced to get real jobs in the private sector, I want people who have been collecting UN-employment for more then 6 months to be required to come off it period!, I want ALL these things the say will happen IF the Gov does not come to an agreement!
The fiscal cliff scares me NOT... let it come baby!
