Congressional leaders and the Trump administration left a critical meeting on Wednesday still with no budget agreement, deadlocked over how much to raise domestic spending to avoid a fiscal calamity.
Given the lack of progress, administration officials are pitching a short-term agreement to avoid breaching the debt ceiling and blunt budget cuts from the sequester in the fall. It’s uncertain whether Democrats will agree.
“We are taking sequester off the table. We are prepared to do a one-year CR with a one-year debt ceiling,” said Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. “The president has every intention of keeping the government open.”
The responsible action is to break this pattern of continuing resolutions which just keep increasing spending and raising the national debt.
Constantly we are given examples of waste and fraud within every department of our federal government. Estimates of $100 billion annually are minimum estimates. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and the Republican establishment keep calling for bigger and bigger government. If this was your business President Trump, you would require a budget from every project in your company and then you would scrutinize that budget and require documented justification for the expenditures. Please do the same with the federal government. Give bonuses to those departments that cut their budgets.
Congress has passed a bill that became law that requires sequestration when a resolution can not be reached. It was one of the few responsible actions congress has done recently. Let’s utilize this responsible action. If you explained it to the American people, you would have an overwhelming favorable response. We Americans believe that what we earn is ours. When the government confiscates our hard-earned income, we resent the federal government wasting what we have donated to the government and then the government asking for more and not being responsible. Waste and Fraud are rampant, and you are the only person that has been in the Oval Office with the backbone to attack it since President Reagan. Please, use sequestration, it is appropriate and it is responsible.
