Sorry, I got to side with the Congressman here. That moron deserves to get thrown out of a window. Reminded me of a cheap knock-off of Ali G without the accent.
no no no.. while the reporter wasn't the most polished.. the fact remains Stark thinks we should spend more.
i can see his partial point, where we have to spend somewhat to pay for infrastructure and what not... The problem occurs when the spending becomes excessive. When the only thing we can do IS spend and borrow. We are just now mortgaging our future in the hopes that some day we will pay it off.
Unfortunately, that isn't going to happen at the rate we are going. We had a nice surplus under Clinton, and under Bush started the raid on it, and its being compounded by Obama...
We will get hit with "User Fees" that aren't labeled as taxes, but are fees for services we need to use. Here in FL, we have increased fees (due to budget shortfalls) to renew your license, renew your car registration, etc. Don't want to drive and take public transportation then? Guess what, those fees are increased too, while routes get canned.
Sorry.. but unlimited spending will doom us. We need to slow it down.. paying billions in interest when we borrow will just hold us back as a nation. People now are borrowing too much because costs have gone up and wages down..
