PayGo. Just another Man behind the curtain

I’m so tired of hearing and reading about the Democrat passed “PayGo” legislation this past session.  They trot it out as if it is the long awaited salvation to the spending binge that is Congress.

PayGo (if they actually honored it – and they have suspended the rule numerous times since passing it) is just treading water on a rising tide of red ink.  The financing on those borrowed dollars still has to be paid.  What difference does it make if you’re paying for bloated Budget item X out of Pocket A out of money “saved” because you stopped funding Project Y out of Pocket B.

It’s POINTLESS!  Stop the bloody spending!

My friend Matthias Shapiro who runs the Political Math blog has put together some of the best visuals to show what a farce the budget is.  The ONLY way to address the issue is to cut the “entitlement” spending.

This was his first video and the word iconic certainly fits.

Think about that word.  Entitlement.  Now think about that word in relation to the oft quoted JFK:

And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

    Wow, that is a great video. To see the scale of our spending visually like that is really incredible.
