Democrat Platform: $675 Billion in New Spending

From the Chattanooga Times Free Press:

…The actual substance of the Democratic the platform calls for billions in new taxes, pushes for the further expansion of government and encourages federal spending to increase substantially.

In fact, the Democratic platform recommends launching a number of new federal schemes and increasing the funding for many existing programs. Among the 21 new spending proposals included in the Democratic Party platform are:

• $453 billion over ten years to fund an expansive stimulus-like job creation scheme;

• $18.4 billion over ten years to get the transportation sector to buy into alternative fuels:

• $6.5 billion over five years for global food security and agriculture research;

• $5 billion in one-time funding for clean energy handouts;

• $5 billion in one-time funding to force the government into the broadband Internet business;

• $980 million over ten years for government-funded abortions (if taxpayers’ pay for 10 percent of abortions); and

• $45 million over five years to support American Indian and Alaska Native languages.

In total, the Democratic Party platform recommends $674.8 billion in additional federal spending over the next decade…

We’re already bankrupt – $16 trillion in official federal debt and probably a hundred trillion in un-funded mandates…and here come the Democrats with plans to just spend some more money we don’t have.  These people are not in any way, shape or form connected with reality.  They appear to believe that the gravy train can just keep on rolling along forever.  Well, Democrats, it doesn’t work like that – you who are ensconced in your over-paid, over-benefitted government job might think that there’s an endless bucket of money, but there isn’t.  If you some how manage to sucker the American people in to keeping you in power and you go on with your plans then you’ll find a day – and only a few years from now – when the government checks just stop coming because there’s no money left.
I don’t back Mitt Romney for the reasons you back Obama – you back Obama because government has become your religion and Obama is your high priest.  I back Romney because he’s rational…he knows that we’re broke and unless we fundamentally change course, we’re doomed.  The life or death of the United States hangs in the balance and you Democrats – in perfect keeping with your ultimate worldview – are voting for death.  I vote for life, on all levels – Obama Must Go!

    Ah, the Democrats/Looters once again demonstrate Einstein’s definition of insanity.

    For you proggies, it is doing the same action over and over and expecting a different result.

        You continue to be an idiot. Some things never change.

      The Democrats are not the only ones who are “insane”. I think that we Republicans are a little “crazy” to expect that an election that is based on popularity by either self-centered or polite citizens will correct the illegal political and economic mess in which we have sunk. The appropriate “political spin” is placed on everything that is said by representatives of either party, and no one with sufficient authority in our political and legal systems or with objective insights in our major media calls sufficient attention to the “fraud” that is being committed against Americans or makes any serious effort to stop it. Popularity by itself is seldom effective against illegal forces of oppression and manipulation.

        repealing al-Ubama care and cutting trillions is crazy?
        count me in on dat one.

        Bob, How exactly what in current presidential politics do you see as “illegal?”

      • JohnnyD September 7, 2012 / 8:03 am

        constitutuion = law
        when the govt does something the constitution doesn’t say it can do it is not legal

      • Bob1 September 7, 2012 / 10:33 am

        Then who is “sane” enough and politically courageous enough to enforce it? I haven’t seen anyone who is.

  2. Bob1 September 6, 2012 / 3:10 pm

    Neocon1, What makes you think that getting enough “popular” political power to repeal “al-Ubama care” and cut “trillions” in spending is going to remove the economic mess in which we have sunk? There are no simple solutions to this problem. That is part of the insanity of our current political processes.

    Government is neither my religion (I am a Methodist and have strong beliefs in God and Jesus Christ as my Savior) nor is President Obama a high priest. There are no priests in my church and I would never consider any man or woman as my priest. President Obama is the President of the United States and I support him with my vote. So Mark, can you understand that – just because I support a person as president does not mean I consider them in any religious terms. I do not need a priest to pray to God. You are often very insulting in your assumptions.

    • neocon1 September 6, 2012 / 4:45 pm

      . There are no priests in my church

      then maam you are not in a biblical “church” maybe that is why you fully support murdering babies and sodomy for starters.

        your “pastor” is the equivalent of a Roman Catholic Priest, both are ORDAINED leaders of the flock and administer the sacraments.

        which NONE are abortion or homosexual anything.

        same old donk class warfare….FAIR SHARE wah wah……but lets talk about fair share…..

        Top 10 Percent of Earners Paid 71 Percent of Federal Income Taxes

        Top earners are the target for new tax increases, but the federal income tax system is already highly progressive.

        The top 10 percent of income earners paid 71 percent of all federal income taxes

        in 2009 though they earned 43 percent of all income. The bottom 50 percent paid 2 percent of income taxes but earned 13 percent of total income. About half of tax filers paid no federal
        income tax at all.

    neo, not to mention, the taxes that zerobama wants to raise on the top earners would help fund the government for about 8 days. yup, if they just “pay their fair share” (eyes rolling) then we can start to pay down our debt.

    Mark, Will it take more than one term for “President” Mitt Romney, working with a GOP House, to restore the US economy to pre Recession levels of unemployment and economic growth?
