old jerry

if you make $100,000 a year
and spend $125,000 a year
you develop a $25,000 a year deficit
in 4 years you would owe $100,000
which is the same as what you earn a year
if this continues
you will be bankrupt

thats what the us government is doing

so ask dave ramsey the financial guy what to do
he would say beans and rice
cut your budget
began paying off your deficit
find a second job
and get rid of this mess you are in
you need less spending and more money coming in

if it goes on too far you get to a point where
you cant overcome the debt
then its bankruptcy as the only answer

in california they have a budget deficit of 15+ billion dollars
if it was a country its economy would be the 8th largest
in the world

arnold tried for several years to right the ship to control
spending and raises taxes
but the states legislatures would not make the decisions
that needed to be made

so enter the old moon beam ex governor himself
he was governor 30 years ago
a democrat
who is 75+ years old
who now seems to be acting like a part democrat part republican

he made the cuts that needed to be made to decrease the budget
but he needed more revenue
some was gained by an uptick in the economy

he asked for tax increases from the states legislatures
controlled by the republicans
they said no

so mr moon beamer went to the people
and put proposition 30 on the ballot
which passed by a 55% margin
the people of california levied an income tax on the
wealthiest californians and a sales tax increase on everyone

yes the people understood the dave ramsey approach
cut spending and raise revenues

this year if all goes as planned
the state of california will have a surplus
yes a surplus
for the first time in years
and will have one into the future

yep old jerry the moon beamer did what needed to be done

now does our congress have the ba!!$ that they need
to do what needs to be done

im concerned that they dont

  1. Really Dr.? Do you think they'll actually do what we elected them to do? They're too afraid they'll cut off the supply of cash from their donors. When they are elected to office their main goal is to be ......you got it, to be reelected.
