Death and Taxes-- But Death only comes once!

America's debt problem is a "sign of leadership failure"

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

You can buy tax free municipal bonds in the state where you live and not have to pay either state and federal tax (in the USA). Nuveen has closed end bond funds that pay more than the bonds themselves. They do this using leverage.

The 26 billion comes out of the 113....
26.7 for personnel
29.3 for procurement
34.3 for operations
20.3 for research and development
2.9 for other
add it all up and you get 113 for the total.

I'm glad to see that over half the budget is for military spending (although 399 billion is a bit too much). At least military spending is constitutional.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson
