With the ascension of ‘RINO Paul’ Ryan to Speaker of the House, we heard much talk regarding his desire to start his tenure with a “clean slate”. But sadly, it would appear that very little, if anything, has actually changed since Ryan assumed the helm there in the House. Because according to estimates just published by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), we seem to be on pretty much the very same course that we were on when Boehner was in charge.
You see, it’s according to the CBO that the federal government not has only managed to tax more, but spent more as well, and has even managed to run a bigger deficit in the first two months of fiscal 2016 than it did in the first two months of fiscal 2015. Now for those who may be unaware of such things, the federal fiscal year begins on Oct. 1 and ends on Sept. 30. So I’m curious, what exactly did Ryan mean when he was talking about starting with a clean slate?
As of the close of business on Friday, Dec. 4, the total federal debt was at $18,786,830,545,682.60. That according to the U.S. Treasury. The Census Bureau says that there were 117,748,000 households in the United States as of September. Thus, the $18,786,830,545,682.60 in federal debt equals approximately $159,551.16 for each household in the United States. So this it would appear that nothing has been done in the effort to get this train back on the tracks.
And so it is, then, that I would like to once again take the opportunity to thank all of those members of the so-called ‘Freedom Caucus’ who thought it would be anywhere near a good idea to throw their support behind ‘RINO Ryan.’ It really has worked out quite well for us. And yes, I’m being sarcastic in my praise of these frauds who were so casually able to once again throw the country under the bus when it could have all been so easily averted. And yet we’re right where we were.
