Thinly veiled threat ? Ambiguous news that we're about to collapse ?
January 1st ?
This is shocking news. Either receipts are collapsing or spending is spiraling or both.
Looks like anyone expecting to get a tax refund might be SOL.
Good. The more the merrier.
Shut it down.
Did Geithner explain why it was that he ran out of money three months early? The Aug 2011 debt ceiling deal was supposed to carry us through March 2013. That deal was cut in exchange for $100 billion in spending cuts that never happened. Someone should tell Geithner to pound sand. Maybe he’ll get the hint and begin laying off Treasury Dept employees.
Hell, they may be such collectors' items as to be worth something. :-)
These 08 Bailout Babies, along with their Federal Lifers, aren’t going to stop until everyone else pays but themselves. The same MO as Exempting themselves from Extortion Care. Stalkers of everyone elses assets (including paid in social security) but their own.
Fine, we will increase the debt limit (yet again). But first, let us remember that you, Pelosi, Reid, and your boss have spent Trillions of dollars in the most irresponsible manner in United States history. "Stimulus 1" was nothing more than political payoff to union goons, environmentalists pagans, and layabout lazies.
Next, reform Entitlements, which are breaking the back of this nation. Instead of spending 67% of every dollar (with 40 cents of THAT dollar borrowed) entitlement spending must be decreased in actual dollars. Moreover, the welfare payment side of entitlements MUST be cut by half, and that includes cutting off the "99ners", millions of phony "Disabled" who are sucking the Social Security system dry, welfare breeders, and illegals who have no right to America's tax dollars in the first place.
Finally, you will stop giving tax "rebates" in the form of the "Earned Income Tax Credit" to millions upon millions of Americans who pay no Federal income tax to begin with. Now.
The US Congress
ahhhhhhhh, this just gets better and better!
The answer is simple: Pass a Bill in the House Abolishing the IRS and Obamacare and Attach a Debt Ceiling hike to it. Or JUST SAY NO.
This was the plan all along, and no one is really interested in stopping it except some crazy fiscal conservatives.
If people think this government will stop spending money it doesn’t have, then I have some prime oceanfront real estate in Nevada to sell you.
Although the U.S. Government owns other assets, such as gold, there are prudential or
legal limitations on its ability to sell these assets. Selling the Nations gold to meet payment
obligations would undercut confidence in the United States both here and abroad, and would be
extremely destabilizing to the world financial system.
Yeah, that probably is not an option because Ft. Knox probably doesn’t hold any physical gold.
In about 5 days, once your messiah (lower case is intentional) pushes us off the fiscal cliff, you will have 460 Billion a year in new taxes with only 100 billion a year in actual spending cuts!!! Come on now Timmy, tell the truth. Makes your crotch all tingly and excited doesn't it? Your ho bitch Bernanke makes all the nasty bank mortgage loans you forced them to write go away and suddenly the banks are solvent. Who the hell cares that all those little people become more impoverished. Why at the rate you guys are going, the other 250 million not on food stamps soon will be.
The most absolute immoral thing government does is steal money from the many so the few can continue to sit on their butts. The poor in America are so well off compared to the poor in other countries, it is nearly incomprehensible. Do the poor in other countries get free cell phones, have multiple automobiles, have games consoles, personal computers or iPads, have multiple flat screen TVs ans cable, have indoor plumbing, access to clean water, a credit card to buy food not at the grocery store but every little convenience store in every corner and virtually free healthcare.
There are poor in America who are rich enough to make people still want to come here and.cash in on the gravy train.
Never let a crisis go to waste. They all disgust me.
Here’s another little shocker for Mr. Tiny Timmy Turbo: Self-employed people making $250K will now be taxed at 39% rate according to your beloved messiah. Add on another 15.3% (or more) for SS and Medicare. That makes a whopping 53.3% federal bite out of every dollar, and that’s not counting any state taxes. Sad news, TTT, those folks are now pushed WAY over on the Laffer Curve and they are NOT going to just keep working for you and the messiah at those kinds of rates...ain’t gonna happen, TTT. They are all going to cut back dramatically and/or just outright quit working at all.
It it gonna get worse, TTT, because they’ll lay off, (if they haven’t done so already) any employees they may have have in order get out from under your messiah’s extortion healthcare plan. So you’re gonna lose all those tax dollars too, TTT. Once that happens on a nationwide grand scale, your golden goose is dead, TTT, your “goose” is cooked!!!. You see, TTT, socialists, cheats and thieves such as yourself eventually run out of other people’s money....and once that hard reality sets in on the “unwashed masses”, those in DC, such as yourself, that were once entrusted by the “unwashed masses” to do the “right thing” will be held responsible in ways that you can’t comprehend or even dream of.
Have you paid all your back taxes yet? You owe me a Social Security Check 1/9/2013.
