Re: “Paul Ryan's budget plan was so bad that even Rep. Mike Ross was against it

Luckily the innovations coming will help to fix this but we are still 10 years out. So for now...we will suffer the wrath of the debt burden our idiotic political system has created. There is no accountability in government. I've worked with them and it doesn't matter. The people don't give a shit what it costs and they spend like mad. In private industry, you're accountable for everything or you get fired. In DC, you get promoted or you blame a private industry for the failures your regulations allowed to happen. The Fed is going to burn us all to the ground with their monetary activities. Just wait for the day when China says...u know...4% is not going to work for us anymore. BOOM.

Taxes on the rich don't do any good. These people cannot and do not deserve to pay more because they make more. They worked their ass off and that makes them responsible for what? People like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have done more for this country than any government entity ever will. Why would you want to stop encouraging people to innovate? That's exactly what this government is doing. Tax me for making it and creating jobs...okay I just won't do it anymore. This country is full of people who think they deserve a handout and I'm not paying for it. I've worked my ass off to make significant amounts and the last thing I want to do is hand it over to our government. If you cut my taxes, the first thing I'd do is reinvest, create new ideas and use the money to build more jobs. What happens when I hand my money to the govt? Down the drain. And taxes don't do any good on the middle class either. The fact that our government continues to blow money on war, rhetoric, stopping legitimate industries like online gaming and other babysitting is what is destroying this country. Let people use their money the way they want. We have the largest online casino in the world called Wall Street and yet we stop a legitimate game of skill (online poker) that could create 1000s of jobs and generate billions in taxes. All this regulation and sucking up to the christians and extremists on both sides has put us in the debt burden we live in today. Who gives a shit about the Libyan people? There are slaughters every day in Africa and the Middle East and we've done nothing because we don't care about their resources. If they had no oil, we would not be there helping them.

See what happens if you hand a trillion dollars to a venture capitalist or money manager and allow them to invest in small businesses, new technologies and innovation. They are only paid if they make significant returns and receive a reasonable salary. I'll bet you this country would change dramatically. Instead...let's go blow $40B on drug wars, handout some freebies and fight for people that hate us. This country is fucked and the only way it gets fixed is when the debt bomb explodes. Then, even Washington, will not be able to buy their way out of the problem.
