Who is the recipient of our accumulated debt?

Sen. Richard Burr
Rep. Walter Jones

March 14, 2013

Instead of doing it "for" the children, we're doing it "to" the children. The Senate finally released a budget yesterday. If approved unchanged it would increase our federal budget from 3.6 trillion dollars in 2013, to 5.7 trillion dollars in 10 years, up 62% a year from what we already cannot afford and have to heavily borrow against.

When asked by a republican congressman yesterday how a family could live like this (greatly overspending its budget), Obama said, "America is not a family." Tell that to the children.

Senate Democrats Proposed Budget Increases Spending 62% Over Next Decade…
Via TWS:

Senator Patty Murray, the Democratic chair of the Senate Budget Committee, finally released a budget today. Year over year, in this proposed budget, spending jumps dramatically.

For instance, from this year’s budget to next year’s proposed budget, spending would increase by $162 billion. This year, the federal government will spend $3.599 trillion; under Murray’s budget, the federal government would be on track to spend even more.

“Murray’s budget spends $2.2 trillion more in 2023 (the last year of the budget window) than the 2013 levels " a 62% increase (significantly outpacing inflation),” says a staff member on the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.
