The numbers, the numbers, isn't anyone paying attention to the numbers! It's not rocket science, it's not calculus, it's simple arithmetic. We are going broke, for all intent and purpose we are broke! Yet our government is expanding on the very programs that got us there. What are we thinking? Do we have a financial death wish, a 16 trillion dollar and counting death wish. Our welfare state has run amuck: Medicare, Medicaid, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ( PPAC) otherwise known as Obamacare, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) otherwise known as Food Stamps, and a host of other government entitlement programs; to say nothing of exorbitant retirement packages for government employees are lending a new dimension to being broke! And as we speak, to keep up, the Treasury's printing presses roar on, as our dollar's value plummets. Anyone for a Prozac?
