"The Department of Energy was instituted on 8-04-1977. The stated objective for this department was to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. Fast forward 32 years...how has this department done in lessening our dependence on foreign oil? No need to answer! And at what cost? The budget for another government behemoth is in the range of a measly $24 billion/year....16,000 federal employees with a much bigger amount of contract employees.
Need I say more of what I think of a health care bill that will be voted on soon...by elected officials that have not read it...foisted upon good Americans by elected officials that in the past few months have floated a: VAT TAX...SODA TAX...STOCK TRANSACTION TAX...SURTAX ON THE WEALTHY...this on top of rising
Remember what I have been telling you for a very long time. The scam is simple...scare the heck out of the American public in order to spend money...then tax the heck out of people in order to gain more control and more power over those same people...in order to re-distribute that money to "the masses" in order to tell "the masses" how wonderful you are...in order to have those "masses" continue to vote for you. And who heads the tax committee....someone who did not pay their taxes. Do not forget, this nonsensical bill will not come into play until after 2012 yet most of the taxes would kick in immediately.
There is only one bit of good news from all this...Americans are catching on...and are starting to get the scam. Remember, you and I have not caused the massive deficits. It is 535 people...most who have never run a business or handled a checkbook...but now tell us they can now spend $875 billion TO SAVE MONEY! And we are supposed to believe that that will be the actual cost...and we are supposed to believe it will save money? Name one government program that came in as expected...name one program that lowered deficits. Come on...I will give you all the time in the world to come up with just one. The other bit of good news is in a number...383 days. Yup...383 days until the next election with a few in between. I think it is pretty simple...run all of them out of Washington...into their next job...which of course would be lobbying....and bring in all new elected officials...and tell them if they want to keep their jobs, they will no longer spend OUR money into oblivion and
