The Secret Is Out: The U.S. Government Is Broke

By Randolph T Holhut

Created Dec 21 2006 - 11:10am

DUMMERSTON, Vt. The Financial Report of the United States Government,

the summation of the 2006 fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, found that had the

federal government used the same accounting practices used by the private sector,

the 2006 federal budget deficit would have been $449.5 billion, not the widely reported

$247.7 billion.

TODAY'S PIG IS TOMORROW'S BACON (a Labor Day recipe)

By Greg Palast
September, 3 2006

Some years from now, in an economic refugee relocation "Enterprise Zone," your kids

will ask you, "What did you do in the Class War, Daddy?"

The trick of class war is not to let the victims know they're under attack. That's how,

little by little, the owners of the planet take away what little we have.

2005 Federal Budget - Misplaced and Uncompassionate

Priorities

On December 8, 2005, the Republican Leadership in the House of Representatives

presented a new, modified federal budget for 2006 and beyond. The President and the

Republican leadership are saying that the costs associated with rebuilding the communities

devastated by Hurricane Katrina have driven up the national deficit to an unacceptable

level. They claim that this new budget was necessary in order to "offset" these rebuilding

costs. I voted against this budget proposal, below are my reason for doing so.

Misplaced and Uncompassionate Priorities

The proposed budget would cut funding for vital social services such as health care,

child care, education, and veterans benefits. Spending for the war in Iraq and tax cuts

for the wealthiest Americans, however, will remain intact. It would seem that the

Majority has a double standard when it comes to spending the American taxpayers'

money. Apparently, it is acceptable to drive up the deficit to unprecedented levels with

tax cuts for the rich and for an ill advised war; yet, when Americans need help to

recover from a natural disaster, budget "offsets" suddenly become necessary. In a

cruel irony, the "offsets" are targeted at precisely the programs that Katrina's victims need most.
