    Simple Math folks Obama & democrats deficit crazy spending has US Debt over $17.1 Trillion Bucks.

    Simple Math folks
    I have learned that there are 1.8 million Fed employees with salaries ranging from $30,000 (janitors) to $400,000 (President). My hours have been cut so my employeer can afford to comply with new Fed restrictions, which has reduced my income by $2,500/ea year. This has made it necessary to reduce my spending and revise my budget. i.e. among other things, I no longer keep my furnace on 72 but have lowered it to 68. Therefore, if all the Fed employees were to reduce their salaries by $1,000 per year (less than what I have had to do) we taxpayers would save $1.8 trillion / yr which happens to be our annual deficit. It won't help the current debt, but it would keep it from getting larger (not including interest which could be dealt with by eliminating czars, duplicate departments, etc. Shame on the tax

    • Simple math. If the interest rate goes back up to normal, about 6% this means the gov't will be paying over a TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN INTEREST. People we are in big trouble with the idiots we have elected to govern us.
      Paying the interest we will not have enough money to pay current bills. This means gov't must borrow more. Will pay more interest. China will own us.
      Gov't now must borrow about 40% of every thing it spends. I wonder how much gov't had to borrow to send Obama and his family to Hawaii for 5 weeks. MO it is a bunch..

      As a member of the baby boomer generation, I have no problem with the huge deficit. I'm currently taking advantage of all the government programs that I can. Of course these programs are funded with borrowed money that future generations will have to pay. But that's okay. Obama handily won the youth vote, so the youth voted for the big deficit, and they'll get it. And the youth will be stuck paying the deficit back, over the next 30-40 years. Just goes to show, you get what you vote for.

      • Your handle aptly suggest what you are...A dumb puppet of the left.. I am happy that you are taking advantage of these programs that are being funded by your future borrowings...Give it 25 years you fool..and you will be crying...Why ME.. You DO deserve to get what YOU voted for..Idiot.

        Great point. These dumasses voted for it, they can pay for it.

        And and but, if we want to save America, to prevent the destruction of it forever, we need to return the voting qualifications to what they were when the country was founded. Even Ann Coulter has said looking back, the 19th amendment didn't turn out very well. Women are just as much to blame for the debt hole the US finds itself in. And speaking of holes,....

        What's worse they control 100% of the world wide production of poosey......... And only about 10% of them are hot. Where's the equal rights in that? How about a mans free and equal access to a large supply of hot babes?

    • Altho I am firmly in your camp, reducing 1.8 million fed worker salary by $1,000 only saves 1.8 billion, but that sure works for me.

    • Your comments are simplistic.. doesn't work that way, although it would be nice... To help you out..get an electric blanket.. they are toasty and you could lower your thermostat to 62..look at the money you will save and you will be whole again...
