Federal Debt Unsustainable according to CBO Chief


Government spending and largess has swamped America in an unsustainable debt crisis. And what do the politicos come up with as a solution? You guessed it RAISE TAXES. Hey how about this idea… CUT THE SIZE OF GOVERNMENT and REDUCE SPENDING. GET OUT OF THE HEALTH CARE BUSINESS. How about quit sticking your big fat nose under every FREE ENTERPRISE tent in America.

LAY OFF the ENTIRE federal government. I THINK WE THE PEOPLE will find a way to survive without you guys. The political class is KILLING AMERICA.

President Obama's budget.

The problem ‘cannot be solved through minor tinkering,’ the head of the Congressional Budget Office said Thursday morning.

The nation’s fiscal path is “unsustainable,” and the problem “cannot be solved through minor tinkering,” the head of the Congressional Budget Office said Thursday morning.

Elmendorf noted a recent CBO report that pegged an increase in the public debt from $7.5 trillion at the end of 2009 to $20.3 trillion at the end of 2020 if President Barack Obama’s fiscal 2011 budget were to be implemented as written. As a percentage of gross domestic product, the debt would rise from 53 percent to 90 percent, CBO forecasted. The last time the percentage was that high was right after World War II.

“If at the end of the day we need to raise taxes, we should raise taxes,” Volcker said.

On Wednesday, Bernanke said in a speech in Dallas that the government must cut entitlements or raise taxes.
