It Will Take An Ax, Not A Scalpel, To Control Federal Spending

The federal government once again hit the debt ceiling. The ceiling limits the amount of money the federal government can borrow — a number that was set at $20.1 trillion.

Trump's $10 Trillion Stimulus Plan

All of Washington seems to be in cardiac arrest over news reports late last week that Donald Trump is planning a budget featuring $10 trillion in cuts over the next decade. We can only hope and pray that the reports are accurate. This is an enterprise that has been borrowing $1 trillion a year for the past decade and is expected to continue to do so for years and decades to come. The national indebtedness will soon exceed $20 trillion, and everyone in Washington is in denial about this metastasizing cancer cell when they should be ordering radiation therapy before it kills off the economy. Yes, even in Washington, $10 trillion is a whole lot of money. It's roughly equal to the entire amount of debt that was accumulated by Barack Obama in eight years. The scaremongers say that cuts of this magnitude would have devastating effects on social programs and vital federal services. Wrong. Even with this overdue downsizing, the federal government would still grow in size over the next decade. It just wouldn't grow nearly as quickly as it is projected to if nothing at all is done.

The Keynote: For several years now, Republicans have been too polite or inarticulate, or both, to say what they really think of the Democratic Party. How clever, then, to find a Democrat to say it for them. Ronald Reagan got in his digs. But you hardly noticed, so affable were his stories and so disarming was that twinkle in his eye. Even the opposition didn't seem to take offense. Ever since Reagan, GOP standard-bearers have seemed either reluctant to mix it up or ill-suited to the task.
