Does Stimulus Spending Work?

After the housing bubble burst, the Bush and Obama administrations turned to stimulus in an effort to "create jobs." Does such spending lead to economic improvement? Prof. Antony Davies examines the data to see how increases in federal spending relate to economic growth from 1955 to the present. The evidence shows that there is no connection between federal spending and economic improvement; instead, stimulus money only increases government debt. After three years of stimulus spending, the unemployment rate remains at 9 percent. "One thing that has changed," Davies says, "is that our government is now $4.6 trillion further in debt than it was before the stimulus efforts."



Four Reasons Why Big Government Is Bad Government

This Economics 101 video from the Center for Freedom and Prosperity explains that excessive government spending undermines prosperity by diverting resources from the productive sector of the economy. Moreover, the two main ways of financing government -- taxes and borrowing -- cause additional economic damage. www.freedomandprosperity.org (2/7/11)

What Sequester? Obama & Biden Live Like Roman Emperors On Public Dime

"President Obama spent weeks scaring America into believing that the sequester would destroy the American economy, and result in draconian budget cuts. This has not stopped the President or Vice President from taking lavish vacations, and using government planes to fly short distances. While Obama cancelled White House tours, closed FAA towers, and refused to refuel aircraft carriers, this has not stopped Biden from spending millions on hotels, air travel and more. Hear more on this Trifecta." Pajamasmedia (3/27/13)


Most Government "Non-Essential"

"Only 17% of the Federal employees are essential?!? This highlights Obama's biggest fear--that people won't notice how much they don't rely on government and don't rely on him. Join Bill Whittle as he chides the Park Service and exposes Obama as a temper-tantrum President." PJ Media (10/10/13)

American States In A Fiscal Death Spiral

Death Spiral States
http://www.behindtheheadlines.net/sections/bthl/videos/vid_137.shtml

They've been called business unfriendly.  Financial hellholes.  Death spiral states.  Without drastic action, they're the first states that will likely collapse.

By one measure, a death spiral state is one in which there are more takers than makers.  "A taker is someone who draws money from the government, as an employee, pensioner or welfare recipient."   ["Taker" definition from Forbes magazine].  A maker is someone who works in the private sector.

Figured into the taker category is the number of Medicaid recipients.  And the amount of the state's unfunded pension liabilities.  [Another consideration is a state's credit worthiness according to analysis by Conning & Co.] A taker-to-maker ratio greater than 1.0 is bad news.  Created by Forbes magazine, this formula yields 11 death spiral states."

Why Can't Chuck Get His Business Off The Ground?

How can Americans create private sector jobs?

The solution to America's jobs problem lies not with budget-busting federally mandated "stimulus" programs.

Instead, what is needed are specific reforms that wouldn't cost taxpayers, would create a broader tax base for cash-strapped cities and states, and would provide opportunity for millions of Americans who worry where their next paycheck is coming from.

As demonstrated by a series of eight new reports issued in October 2010 by the Virginia-based Institute for Justice, one of the principal obstacles to creating new jobs and entrepreneurial activity in cities across the country is the complex maze of regulations cities and states impose on small businesses. IJ's "city study" reports are filled with real-world examples of specific restrictions that often make it impossible for entrepreneurs to create jobs for themselves, let alone for others.

Chip Mellor, the president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, said, "If the nation is looking to the federal government to create jobs in America, it is looking in the wrong place. If we want to grow our economy, we must remove government-imposed barriers to honest enterprise at the city and state levels. Remove those barriers, and you will see a return to the optimism and opportunity that are hallmarks of the American Dream."

IJ's eight reports document how irrational and anti-competitive regulations block entrepreneurship. More often than not, these government-imposed restrictions on economic liberty are put in place at the behest of existing businesses that are not shy about using government force to keep out competition. The Institute for Justice's city studies examine regulations imposed on a wide range of occupations in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C InstituteForJustice (10/26/10)

“When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion—when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing—when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors—when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you—when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice—you may know that your society is doomed.” – Ayn Rand

The Unemployment Game Show: Are You "Really" Unemployed?

The government is telling us that the economic stimulus is working and the recession is over. But you wouldn’t know it from looking at the unemployment numbers. While we may have dodged another great depression, unemployment is at its worst since then, having fallen to 10 percent by the Fed’s own reckoning. And, while we don’t like to be the bearers of bad news, we do stand for transparency in reporting statistics. So we’ve produced an animated infographic explaining who gets to call themselves ‘officially’ unemployed, and why the government leaves out millions of jobless Americans in their often cited and repeated unemployment rate statistic. So while the economy may be recovering, it might be awhile before many Americans feel it in their wallets.

"Are you *officially* unemployed? The reported rate actually excludes millions of jobless Americans." --  https://www.mint.com/

Government Shutdown Is Bush's Fault

Shutdown: Bush's Fault?
http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/matt-vespa/shutdown-bushs-fault

MRCTV's Dan Joseph had a question on his mind that he couldn't shake: who bears the brunt of the blame for the government shutdown? Who really is responsible for the mess we're in right now?  Is it President Obama or former President George W. Bush?  He decided to take these questions to the heart of our misery: Washington D.C.

The Blunt Truth About The Government Shutdown
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2nMwm7e_Lo

Divide and Conquer

Despite the fact that "Dubya" has been out of office for the past five years, most of the respondents said former President George W. Bush is to blame for the shutdown.

Why?  Well, he apparently did a lot of bad stuff and had policies that only Barack Obama can reverse, which is why the current president has added twice as much debt than economic output over the past two years.

As for health care, which is at the heart of the shutdown, one respondent said that, if Bush had proposed some sort of health care reform, all of this could've been avoided.  Well, he did.  In fact, there's a long history of Republican policy proposals to fix American health care.

The irony is that Bush's 2007 health care proposal is actually "superior" to Obamacare concerning universal coverage. As Chris Conover of Forbes noted last August:

 

 

"[T]he Bush plan actually was superior to Obamacare when it comes to providing universal coverage. Remember, Obamacare actually does not provide universal coverage. The latest figures from CBO says that when it is fully implemented in 2016, Obamacare will cut the number of uninsured by only 45%, covering 89% of the non-elderly. Even if illegal immigrants are excluded, this percentage rises to only 92%. In contrast, the Bush plan (without a mandate!) would have cut the number of uninsured by 65%." -- Matt Vespa/CNSNews.com (10/16/13)


Rush Limbaugh Bashes 'Journalistic Malpractice' Attacking GOP Over Gov't Shutdown

"Rush Limbaugh took the media to task Monday for foisting all the blame of a potential government shutdown on Republicans. He mocked pieces like The Washington Post's "You will no longer be able to watch this baby panda online if the government shuts down" and this Associated Press articlefor basically saying Republicans want a shutdown and "hate the zoo" and all the rest of it.

Limbaugh predicted in the next few days the media would write piece after piece about all the programs getting shut down during the shutdown and blaming Republican intransigence on the whole thing. He referred to the AP article above as "basically a press release from the Democrat party" that accuses Republicans of hating Obama so much they're willing to let millions of people go without health care.

"It's just flat-out journalistic malpractice. There is no pretense--there's not even an objective pretense here to portray the Republican position on this anywhere near accurately." MichaelSavage4Prez (9/30/13)

Our Massive Deficit "Isn't A Product Of Spending"

Larry Kudlow and guests discuss government spending, budgets, and the national debt.

Listen at the 5:20 mark: "The deficit we face right now isn't a product of spending."

If you have credit card debt it’s not because you spent money, it’s because you used your credit card.

If you are underwater on your mortgage, it’s not because the home is worth less than your mortgage, it’s because people are not willing to pay a higher “fairer” price.

"One of the penalties of not participating in politics is that you will be governed by your inferiors." -- Plato



Does Government Have A Revenue Or Spending Problem?

"People say the government has a debt problem. Debt is caused by deficits, which is the difference between what the government collects in tax revenue and the amount of government spending. Every time the government runs a deficit, the government debt increases. So what's to blame: too much spending, or too little tax revenue? Economics professor Antony Davies examines the data and concludes that the root cause of the debt is too much government spending." LearnLiberty (4/25/12)

It Is Dangerous To Be Right When The Government Is Wrong: The Case For Personal Freedom

Judge Andrew P. Napolitano examines the concept the government hates and fears the most: Freedom.

The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny. Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty. In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano asks: Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?

In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:

•Do we still have a Constitution?

•What are the limits to government power in a free society?

•Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?

•If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?

•Do we really own any private property?

The Judge gives a sweeping treatment of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious, and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom.

The Corruption Chronicles : Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, And Big Government

WASHINGTON’S MOST CORRUPT:  PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

FLOUTING OF FEDERAL LAW * CORRUPTION * VIOLATING CAMPAIGN FINANCE REGULATIONS * TERRORIST TIES * VOTER REGISTRATION FRAUD * GOVERNMENT CON GAMES * EXTORTION

BECAUSE NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!

In 2008, Barack Obama made a promise to have the “most transparent administration” of any U.S. president; it was the very cornerstone of his campaign. No secrets. No masks. No smoke and mirrors. No excuses. But over the next four years, President Obama’s administration would prove to be one of the most guarded and duplicitous of our time.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, America’s largest nonpartisan government watchdog (challenging George W. Bush as well as Bill Clinton), has been investigating Obama ever since he splashed onto the national scene in 2006. Now Fitton exposes devastating secrets the Obama administration has desperately fought-even in court—to keep from the American public. For a while, the Obama stonewall seemed to be holding. Until now. And the revelations are astonishing.

Judicial Watch has unearthed the truth behind such high-profile issues as the bailouts, Obamacare, Guantanamo, Obama’s true ties to Bill Ayers and to the Black Panthers voting intimidation scandal, and the Constitution-defying government czars. He reveals Obama’s personal war against FOX News, his real link to ACORN, and his radical Chicago connections. Through scores of smoking-gun government files, some replicated here and many unearthed after lengthy court battles, Fitton also discloses the facts of the Obama-backed $535-million loan guarantee to Solyndra, promoted by the president as a model for economic recovery-only months before its disastrous bankruptcy filing. Here too is the truth behind the gunrunning scandal, code-named Fast and Furious, which was a program generated in secrecy by the U.S. government that supplied thousands of firearms to murderous criminals in Mexico-an unconscionable act, and only one in a series of historical lows for an administration that few, if any, major media in this country dare to expose. This book details how the Obama machine is aggressively employing Chicago-style tactics to steal, if necessary, the 2012 elections. And how Judicial Watch is prepared to go to court with historic lawsuits to make sure the elections are fair and honest.

Why do Obama supporters turn a blind eye to his astoundingly unethical and abusive approach to governing this country? The Corruption Chronicles boldly, honestly, and factually makes the case that the federal government is now off the rails and out of control, and has literally built its foundation on broken promises, fatal miscalculations, and a cynical manipulation of its trusting public. But it’s not over. Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch are proof that the Tea Party approach to government corruption can make a difference. A grassroots group can take on the president, the Congress, and the judiciary, and finally force the government to be held accountable. The uncontestable facts are here, in The Corruption Chronicles. To see what is true, you only have to look.
