Taxes & Spending
When Republican George W Bush took office in 2001, the entire national debt from the beginning of republic more than 200 years earlier, was $5 trillion. In just 8 years, Bush doubled it to $10 trillion. Then, Democrat Barrack Obama took office - and he doubled it again to $20 trillion.
But that’s just the current debt. The unfunded liabilities - for benefits promised to people who are alive today - is an astounding $100 Trillion. And Federal spending will rise to more than a third of the entire economy. Add in State & Local spending, and government will be nearly half of the economy. Democrat or Republican, it doesn’t matter - they’re both spending the country into bankruptcy - literally.
If you vote for Democrats or Republicans, you’re harming your own children. Shame on you. Vote Libertarian - we’ll drastically cut taxes and spending. Give the kids a future.
