    Reagan on the Budget

    Ronald Reagan gives us a word of advice in 1975:

    Contrast the great American President Reagan with that alien Marxist anti American we have in office right now. It is unbelievable. There is no comparison at all. What a shame. Thank you, thank you very much

    "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."

    Unless you take into account that in 1975 inflation was 10% and that now it is under 2%. If the government reduces its spending too much you end up taking your economy from a growing one into a shrinking one where no one will spend more than they need to which further reduces the economy. While the government does have to get its finances in order you can not ignore what it will do to the economy.

    Didn't Clinton GUT the military to balance the budget?
    Isn't that Obama's track also?

    Army 1989 769,000

    Army 1993 572,000

    Army 2001 480,000

    Sounds like someone was doing some gutting of their own pre clinton.

    Sure...the clintmeister maybe made a few boo boos in what he cut here and there... but as far as the amounts he cut.... he cut no more than the Bush Sr. admin had projected needed to be cut.

    U.S. Constitution

    Article 1 Section 8


    (Clause 1 – Power to tax and spend)

    [The Congress shall have Power] To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    The President cannot fund or defund the Military, the only one who ever did this was Abraham Lincoln. Which was a clear abuse of power. Congress has never let that happen again.

    Revenues increased during the Clinton presidency because of

    1. The Dot Com boom of the 1990's, which crashed in 2000.

    2. The Republican Contract with America, which held Congressional spending in check. If not for this, Clinton proposals would have increased welfare spending.

    But...But...But... Why didn't Ronnie just say NO? Maybe because it is not so simple?
