Trusting Money Handlers

Posted in Uncategorized by idiotwebmaster on April 10, 2011

I just visited CNN’s home page. I saw their never ending “Quick Vote” stupidity. Today: Which party do you trust more on the budget? So far the results show Democrats getting the most votes. Personally I would like to see a stat showing which party members maintain their own personal budgets? Who lives in “debt” and who manages their money the best. That is who I would like to manage the budget!

If I spent MORE than I MADE, I would be in debt, too. These weasels need to spend our money wisely and not tax us to death like other countries. In tough times I need to cut back, why can’t the government? Why do these social programs and what-not need to be in there. Take them out for a year or two until things get better. I don’t know, I’m no expert. I just feel we as a nation is getting screwed by politicians, lobbyists, unions, and all the special interests that go with it. Everyone is out for themselves. Ugh.

    You are totally correct. I was taught to budget by my grandfather. You don’t spend what you don’t have. If I ran my budget like the government, banks and other businesses I would be living on the sidewalk (N.B. no one would bail me out!). Why should I have to pay the price by giving the government, banks, insurance companies more money because they made bad decisions and can’t add & subtract? I am accountable and take responsibility for my spending; shouldn’t those supposedly more knowledgeable than me do the same?
