Is Generational Theft Against the Law?
Is there a law against stealing from generations of Americans yet unborn? Apparently not; the Democrats are proposing another “stimulus program”. Because you know the last one was so successful.
Senate Democrats on the supercommittee say the group needs to include stimulus for the economy in the deficit-reduction plan it has been tasked with producing by Thanksgiving.
The three Senate Democrats serving on the 12-member deficit supercommittee outlined their approach to the talks in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Wednesday.
Supercommittee Co-Chairwoman Patty Murray (Wash.) and Sens. Max Baucus (Mont.) and John Kerry (Mass.) said the supercommittee needs to make jobs a top priority. “We know that our goal is to reduce spending. But we also know that America faces not just a budget deficit but also a jobs deficit. Nobody on this committee would be happy if we reduced the budget deficit but even more Americans end up losing their jobs,” Murray, Baucus and Kerry wrote in the op-ed.
What they mean is that federal government workers shouldn’t lose their jobs. And in order to guarantee this loyal constituency employment and benefits until death, they must steal from your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
