I think you guys should get to work on important issues... like "illegal
immigration," "catch and release," and "chain migration"
programs. Get going!!
@LauraNumbers don't/can't "lie".However, people sometimes do.😀
What should we call a budget that the federal government refuses to live within?
Building up a "reserves" fund for national disasters makes perfect
sense. Other entities do this all the time.
@Herbert Gravy wrote,"Many middle income families such as my own
benefitted greatly from the new tax law."Either you have a very
different definition of "middle income" or "greatly" than I do.
But the numbers don't lie."Also, Senators Romney and Lee,
just think of how much money would be available to cover "natural
disasters" if we did not have a porous Southern border."Even
better, think of how much money would be gained if we legalized the undocumented
workers who are already here and got them all paying taxes. And the employers
of all those under-the-table workers would be paying into the state
workers' compensation funds as well.
@LauraSorry, it is NOT a "millionaire's tax cut".Many middle income families such as my own benefitted greatly from the
new tax law.Also, Senators Romney and Lee, just think of how much
money would be available to cover "natural disasters" if we did not have
a porous Southern border.
"Lee said the government should not be able to avoid difficult financial
realities by simply marking funds as "emergency" or "disaster
relief." "We’ve seen in the last five years that Congress would
rather borrow and spend instead of cutting wasteful, unnecessary programs and
saving for a rainy day," he said."Mr. Lee, you voted for the
millionaire's tax cut. Did you not think it would result in a
"difficult financial reality"? And how about telling us
about these "wasteful, unnecessary programs" that you want cut.
Actually list them, and explain why they are wasteful. Tell us the consequences
of cutting them. If you have none in mind --and I'm guessing that you
don't--then be honest and say that, as well.
I'm all for budgeting...especially "balanced" budgeting. My wife
and I do it. All of us do it.It's great these guys want to
"put it in the budget", but until Congress gets serious about reigning
in the spending...EVERY KIND OF SPENDING...to get the deficit and national debt
under control, it's all just talk...
I like to see our Utah Senator's doing the work we voted them in office to
accomplish. We have some serious issues for the country and it appears they are
focusing on taking the issues head on. With Senator Romney's financial
skills and back ground he can do many good things for the country if he will
keep his focus.
Not a bad idea but this would only work if the budgeted money was put in a lock
