Will GOP be blamed for $100 billion of new debt in 2016?

Share

By Rick Manning at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

The New Hampshire primary is now a memory, and the road show is off to South Carolina followed shortly by what is known as the SEC primary through the deep South.

As the red and blue clown cars head down I-95, it is still important that the nation’s eyes rest on the happenings along the Potomac, where the budget deficit is projected to expand to $544 billion, $105 billion above last year’s levels. It is in D.C., where Obama has just announced that he is going to make climate change an integral part of military planning all the way down to the tactical level in the field.

Metcalfe Warns Taxpayers of Wolf’s Insatiable Appetite for more of Their Money

Share

 

 

 

 

Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) issued the following statement today regarding Gov. Tom Wolf’s 2016-17 state budget proposal:“Since no society has ever taxed, spent or borrowed its way to prosperity, let’s be completely honest and transparent about what Gov. Wolf is actually proposing in his 2016-17 state budget.

“Living up to his ranking as the nation’s most liberal governor, Wolf is once again displaying what so many already knew, liberals don’t care about people; they only care about increasing government control.

“Taxpayers cannot afford to pay billions more in taxes and should not be penalized so Wolf can use taxpayer money as a means to feed his insatiable appetite for unsustainable spending.

“Not surprisingly,

Why haven’t lower interest rates spurred home-buying?

Share

 

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

One of the mysteries surrounding the post-financial crisis economy is why lower interest rates — led primarily by the Federal Reserve setting its benchmark rate to near-zero levels in 2008 — did not do more to spur home-buying, and overall credit expansion.

When the Fed originally slashed interest rates to its historically low levels when the program was announced on November 25, 2008, the Fed promised it would “reduce the cost and increase the availability of credit for the purchase of houses, which in turn should support housing markets and foster improved conditions in financial markets more generally.”

But did it? Take existing

THE WAR ON HOMEOWNERS CONTINUES! EAST PENN TO REFINANCE DEBT!

Share

East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school

The US Debt Just Exceeded $19 Trillion. Here’s How We Got Here.

Share

By Romina Boccia / / at THE DAILY SIGNAL

Romina Boccia

On Monday the U.S. national debt hit a new record: $19,012,827,698,418. This is the first time the national debt has ever exceeded $19 trillion. That’s more than $58,000 for each person who lives in the U.S. today (including children).

That’s more than $58,000 for each person that lives in the U.S. today (including children).

The main culprit behind the rising deficits and debt is growing federal spending—especially among Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Obamacare.

Traditionally, Congress has set a limit for how much debt the U.S. may take on, known simply as the debt limit. But rather than put a higher limit on the debt, lawmakers
