Let Sequestration Begin!
The Dims and the media are attempting to portray the `fiscal cliff` as all GOP’s fault. They are doing a good job too I might add. My suggestion? GOP let us go over that cliff — NOW. Introduce a bill into the House that in one bill takes the US over the debt limit and forward it to the Senate.
Here’s why —
The punchline: 110 million privately employed workers; 88 million welfare recipients and government workers and rising rapidly.
And since nothing has changed in the past two years, and in fact the situation has gotten progressively (pardon the pun) worse, here is our conclusion on this topic from two years ago:
We have been writing for over a year, how the very top of America’s social order steals from the middle class each and every day. Now we finally know that the very bottom of the entitlement food chain also makes out like a bandit compared to that idiot American who actually works and pays their taxes. One can only also hope that in addition to seeing their disposable income be eaten away by a kleptocratic entitlement state, that the disappearing middle class is also selling off its weaponry. Because if it isn’t, and if it finally decides it has had enough, the outcome will not be surprising at all: it will be the same old that has occurred in virtually every revolution in the history of the world to date.
There is a two pronged rationale for this strategy:
- First of all as the quotation above points out, the fall of the system is already baked in. Fact it is accelerating. You can’t have 2.5 private sector jobs supporting nearly 2 drone jobs. Once the triggers fall in place, the rich in this country will leave in droves just like has happened in France and England. The number of drones to workers will increase and the tax base will collapse.
- Second is political. Boehner needs to pick something out of the drunk tank of Dim proposals, ram it thru rules committee, get it to the floor and passed. Mr. Reid will then have to take it to committee and have one of two outcomes —
- He kills it in which case he can be labeled as not want to help the poor. Or,
- He passes it on a party line vote, busts the debt limit and can be labeled a big spender.
Turn the tables, accelerate the fiscal demise and lets get this over with.
One might want to take a particular look at the accompanying graph to the article. It lays out in reasonable detail why the poor would rather stay under <$30k in income. There is no marginal benefit between $30k and $50k as it relates to disposal income from the benefits boost provided.
