Liberals LOVE taxes!


In the first six months, Seattle has collected more than $10 million from its tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.- Ronald Reagan


SF and Oakland have the same thing…


Hell , it’s califuckia of course .


Right wingers LOVE DEBT!!!


Exactly and Reagan was the king thereof (before Trump anyway) taking what took 39 presidents and 200 years to accumulate, 900 billion in national debt, in 8 short years Reagan tripled it and created the debtor state which presidents/congresses have followed since.


It’s called social engineering

When government wants to modify behavior they tax it till it hurts


Which is better, tax and spend, or borrow and spend???


It isn’t a tax issue But a spending issue.

We are plagued with the it isn’t my money so it doesn’t matter from both parties…


What do working Americans have to do ?


It’s a spending issue!!! As Trump, the liar in Chief breaks his campaign promise to run balanced budgets and sign a record spending bill, increasing entitlement spending. :flushed::flushed::flushed:


Yes !!! It’s is a massive spending issue !!! I’m extremely pissed the president didn’t shutdown the government over the bill !!! He alsao was NOT happy about that BS being presented to him and said as much ! But I must agree with you . :weary::cry:


Going to try and pile on more to the national debt by creating a ‘space force’ (Star Wars-2) lol. Trump doesn’t know how much it costs or where to find the money other than to borrow more and drive us deeper into debt…


Not so fu*king funny when the USA is using sticks and stones to fight the next war !!! :roll_eyes:
China and Russia are now aggressively challenging U.S. primacy in space — potentially threatening satellites used for military communications, targeting and ­battlefield management.

Russia and China are developing capabilities to disable our satellites.” Gen. David L. Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, repeated like a mantra the phrase “Always the predator, never the prey,” in describing how his service views its mission in space. An arms race in space, as dreadful as that sounds, is already underway. And there’s broad agreement among analysts that the vulnerability of U.S. systems to attack is real.

“The threat is quite serious,” says Robert O. Work, who was a deputy defense secretary in the Obama administration. He notes that Russia and China have demonstrated the ability to jam space communications, blind optical sensors with lasers, launch direct-ascent anti-satellite weapons and operate co- ­orbital anti-satellite weapons.

China’s disclosures about the coming “weaponisation of space” should greatly concern US and allied defence planners. The US may soon have no choice but to change its long-held policy of not deploying arms in space. In 2007, China launched a missile that tracked and destroyed one of its own satellites — a highly provocative demonstration of China’s growing capability to militarise space. Russia has been designing an airborne laser to disrupt our space-based system. And it claims to be developing missiles that can be launched from an aircraft mid-flight to destroy American satellites.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un has taken a page from the old Soviet playbook by launching two satellites (in 2012 and 2016) that can threaten the US by – in theory, at least – attacking the US with an electromagnetic pulse as part of a surprise assault aimed at crippling the US military. The satellites would allow North Korea to play a cyber-age version of battleship

President Trump’s highest priority is the safety and security of the American people. And while, too often, previous administrations all but neglected the growing security threats emerging in space, president Trump stated clearly and forcefully that space is, in his words, ‘a warfighting domain, just like … land, air and sea.’

For many years, nations from Russia and China to North Korea and Iran have pursued weapons to jam, blind, and disable our navigation and communications satellites via electronic attacks from the ground.
Those fu*king flowers stuffed down the barrel of a rifle would do you dipshits much good then !


It’s a spending issue and the CONGRESS passes spending for the country.

perhaps someday you’ll wake up to the reality that the level of hate you have for Trump affects every comment you spew on this site.


Ain’t that a fact and the charlatan that promised balanced budgets delivered shit instead.

Trump Promised to Eliminate National Debt in Eight Years. Good Luck With That

The (Trump administration) proposal would add $7.2 trillion more to the debt over 10 years. The projections in the budget also envision very robust economic growth, so if the economy cools, the budgetary picture will get even worse.

All of this is made more difficult by the trillion-dollar hole left in the budget by Trump’s tax cut, plus the half a trillion in increased spending in the two-year budget deal Trump signed last week. That deal means $1 trillion in annual budget deficits for the foreseeable future.



You know what dude, I never pay you any attention whatsoever, that’s how utterly insignificant you are to me. My hate for Trump is the same as your hate for me so what’s your fucking point, hmm?


Federal spending on major government healthcare programs will increase by $55 billion, or 6%, in fiscal year 2016, according to the publication. Major government healthcare programs, according to the federal government, include Medicare, Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and health insurance subsidies.

The CBO estimates that outlays for the Medicare program will increase by $30 billion, or 6%, in this fiscal year, “largely because of increased spending per person, particularly for prescription drugs,” according to the report.

Medicaid outlays are expected to increase by $15 billion, or 4%, this year. The CBO expects Medicaid enrollment to be flat in 2016.

Outlays for Social Security benefits, according to the CBO, will increase by $28 billion, or 3%, this year. “That percentage increase is about a percentage point below the rate of growth in 2015, primarily because there was no cost-of-living adjustment for beneficiaries in January 2016,” according to the report.
