    Re: Presidential Candidate Q & A on Recreational Fishing

    If you have been following what I have been saying, you would know that I am not a big fan of welfare. I do believe that government spending on education, training, and infrastructure projects would help create the jobs necessary to get people off unemployment and welfare. People who can work-should work-and if they don't, they should not get benefits. I looked on various websites and the average welfare check for a family of four is between 600 and 750 dollars, so it would be good to know how the committee came up with their numbers.

    He was talking about the 47% receiving government assistance and welfare.

    I would agree if our national debt was not being increased by 3.88 billion a day. Since you believe all the Keynesian economic theories, where will the funds come from? Enlighten me? (Don’t give me that tax the wealthy BS, because that is like trying to sink a battle ship with red rider BB gun. It won’t even put a scratch in the defect. So tell me you logic. Show me the money.

    Fishhead if you were personally spending 14% more a year then you income allowed. Could you afford to; repave your driveway, send you child to a private prep school, have the dog whisper train you dog not to rub its butt on the carpet. It would be illogical if you did. You would be homeless in less then a year. So why is it ok for the government to spend our money like this?

    With the laws protecting people who dont pay rents and mortgages...it would take at least a year and a half to make him homeless.....and that is after the land lord or mortgage holder started action against him....

    Tomfly, I answered this in an earlier post. I have put forth what I think may be the solution. Yes, it is Keynesian economic theory, and it has worked in the past. Government economics differ from household economics, but let's just say they were comparable. It is very common for a household to be in debt for more than they earn in a year (mortgages). If the household is deficit spending 14% a year to pay the mortgage and support the family, without additional revenue the house is lost and the family suffers, but if the household deficit spent to invest in other members of the household receiving training that enabled them to get a job, or helped other members create a business, they would stop being a drain on household resources and start adding income that would in time reduce the deficit. It is reported that maintaining the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy would cost about 690 billion. A rather large BB.
