I remember my dad keeping track of the gas mileage of the car and gas prices,
how much was spent. Mom would write a grocery list and keep track of how much
things coasted and how much was spent. I'm going to start to do that.
Every politician should be required to go to a financial course. The solution to
all of our problems is not "lack of taxes, need more taxes, borrow, spend,
kick the can down the road". Just as a household needs to balance their
budget and pay down debt, our country needs to slim down it's programs,
it's buying and focus on balancing the budget and paying off debt.I'm so tired of the number games the politicians play. Had they been
responsible with Social Security and ran it as it was set up. There would be
talks about the success of the program, rather than how do we borrow and take
more money from it and how do we raise taxes, fees and increase the age
limit.It's very sad where our country is.
Barack knows the answer. He tells us to fix our financial woes we need to spend
more money. I can't see whats wrong with his idea
