Our deficit is spinning out of control, and the Democratic Senate can’t pass a budget. I don’t get it.
With our deficit rising spectacularly over the Obama term, Obama proposes increasing spending to cut spending, obviously, I don’t get it.
Can’t we just cut the budget? It seems simple to me. Here are some other things I don’t get.
All this hub bub about returning to the dark ages, and taking rights away. I don’t get it. In my mind, the frame of reference for the debate about contraception and abortion purely hinges on the government’s responsibility. Should government be paying for an organization like Planned Parenthood? Or, should Planned Parenthood exist purely as a charitable organization? If Anjelica Houston et al feel so strongly about Planned Parenthood-they could donate money to support its operations. Why is government in my bedroom anyway? I don’t get it.
ACORN is another government supported organization. Supposedly if we do away with it, no one will be able to find a home. Really? I don’t get it. Why should the government be in the housing business? It’s not just ACORN and other government supported entities like it I don’t get, but I also don’t get why government is supporting things like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Government should be in the governing business, not the housing business. I don’t get it.
Oil companies get some pretty nice subsidies from government. I don’t get it. Isn’t there enough economic incentive to drill for oil already? Why are we giving subsidies to oil companies? Additionally, the government controls who can drill when and where. The government controls the permit programs and sets the rules and regulations. I don’t get that either. Maybe if we revamped the government controls we could get rid of all the subsidies and energy prices would drop. For years every President has talked a good game about energy, but none have done anything realistic about it. I just remember President Clinton saying we shouldn’t drill in ANWR because we won’t get anything for ten years out of it. Hey, that was over ten years ago. We’d be getting something today. I don’t get it.
