“The House on Thursday passed a measure that would spare the Pentagon from looming cuts by making deeper cuts to social programs. But Congress isn’t expected to get serious about altering the debt deal’s $109 billion sequester until after the November election.”-Christian Science Monitor
In order for our nation to get back into order there has to be reform; some are even concluding that the only solution to our current economic calamity would be to have an outright, terminal collapse of the American government and economic system as a plenary. Although, I do disagree there has to be an entire collapse in order to achieve any sense of reform, for example, the Great Depression was our current recession on bad-economy steroids BUT there was a recovery from the Great Depression and latter to the recovery there was eventually a new, prosperous economic boom.
The economic recession we’re in will not recover if there’s a continuation of these cockamamy decisions made by a large portion of our elected morons. It’s nice to hear some chatter about a possibility of Congressional initiative to move away from cutting our defense. The U.S.A. Today reported on May 10th, 2012, the legislation passed in the house making cuts to social programs to aid the Pentagon would include, but aren’t limited to, “food stamps, benefits for federal workers and social services programs like day care for children and ‘Meals on Wheels’ for the elderly.”
I possibly could not elaborate enough on the fact I’m so exultant that there is formal, Congressional initiative to cut deeper into the more useless sections of our government like the social programs mentioned in the above paragraph. It’s NOT the governments responsibility to provide Meals on Wheels, or to give out free bikes and what not to children and families, or to provide food through food stamps, or to give easy access to benefits through the obvious loopholes to abuse these social programs, etc.
