Spending, Spending, Spending

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MARCH 23, 2018

 THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN WEDNESDAY BECAUSE OF A SNOWSTORM. NO ONE SCREAMED ABOUT THE FATE OF THE COUNTRY.

BUT A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN THAT REALLY ISN’T A SHUTDOWN DUE TO LACK OF MONEY, WHICH ISN’T REALLY A LACK OF MONEY, IS A CATASTROPHE.

REPUBLICANS AVOIDED A SO-CALLED SHUTDOWN TODAY BY GIVING DEMOCRATS WHAT THEY WANTED – MORE SPENDING; WHICH MEANS MORE BORROWING, BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY TO SPEND; WHICH MEANS MORE DEBT. $21 TRILLION AND COUNTING AND NOT EVEN REPUBLICANS SEEM TO CARE BECAUSE IT IS ALL ABOUT KEEPING THEIR MAJORITIES.

FORGET THE OPIOD ADDICTION PROBLEM. TOO MANY OF US ARE ADDICTED TO GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS AND THE POLITICIANS – ESPECIALLY THE DEMOCRATS – FEED OUR ADDICTION BECAUSE IT KEEPS THEM IN OFFICE. DON’T VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS, THEY SAY, OR YOU’LL LOSE YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE. IT ‘S A LIE BUT WHEN DID POLITICS MEAN TELLING THE TRUTH?

REPUBLICANS ONCE CARED ABOUT FISCAL DISCIPLINME AND THE CONSTITUTION. NOW IT APPEARS MOST OF THEM CARE ONLY ABOUT THEIR CAREERS. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
