Use the graft to pay down the debt
In the news this morning, there was an article about millionaires now able to get food stamps because this administration has allowed anyone who can show no income qualifies to be on the dole.
Food stamps have jumped from 26 million people in 2007 to 44 million now.
Also, the subsidies for farmers, and also millionaires, are paid billions of dollars not to farm their land.
Why are these loopholes allowed, and why isn't this money paying off our huge dept?
. Billions to subsidizing farmers growing corn for ethanol that ruins your cars
. Billions paid in fraud to Social Security recipients in error
. Medicare and Medicaid fraud
. Tax loopholes for favored political contributors
All this graft could be paying down the huge debt.
We need term limits on Congress with its 14 percent approval rating to weed out the corruption. Both parties are guilty.
Paying down the debt should be the No. 1 priority, and Congress needs to quit spending our money with billions to Pakistan, that sides with the Taliban, and many other countries that we should not be subsidizing, for examples.
Time to wise up and get some people in there to clean house.
I bet Donald Trump would have done just that, and maybe Rick Perry can do for our country what he has done for Texas, as they do not have an employment problem like the rest of the country has.
