Bailout Summary: List of bailouts so far

OBAMA’S BUDGET PROPOSAL for fiscal year 2010
1. Increases spending to $3.55 TRILLION.
2. Adds deficits of $9.3 TRILLION over the next 10 years.
3. Raises taxes by as much as $3 TRILLION over the next ten years

 

Obama’s budget will waste taxpayer money:
1. Includes a $646 Billion Cap-and-Trade Energy Tax.
2. Makes a “Down Payment” on Socializing Healthcare.
3. Hands out Billions to leftist Agencies that Fund ACORN and other Community Organizing Groups.
4. Increases Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Funding after It Helped Cause the Financial Crisis.
5. Claims that Government Knows Better than Taxpayers about Their Retirement.
6. Creates Yet Another Entitlement and Spends Billions on Pell Grants.
7. Spends $178 Billion on Interest on the Debt.
8. (As Part of Its $1 Trillion Tax Hike!) Raises Taxes by $1 Billion to Fund the Failed EPA Superfund Program.
9. Generates Even More Cheap Credit to Further Distort the Market.
10. Increases Funding for Space Exploration while the Country Suffers in Recession.

 

NEGATIVE IMPACT OF OBAMA’S BUDGET
#1.
The national debt will double over the next 5 years; and it will triple over the next 10 years to $17.3 trillion.
#2. The national debt will soar over the next 10 years from 40% of GDP today to a shocking 82.4%.

      (Ronald Reagan left office with the national debt at 42% of GDP).
#3. Total federal borrowing will grow by $2.7 trillion this year alone, an increase of 27% in 1 year!
#4. Increases federal spending by 34% over the previous year, with a total of $4 trillion in federal spending, the highest ever.
#5. The federal budget deficit (not the national debt) would reach $1.845 trillion this year, the highest ever.   (More than 7 times

      Reagan’s largest budget deficit of $221 billion, which caused so much consternation among Reagan’s critics.)
#6. This Obama budget deficit will total an astounding 13.1% of GDP, more than one-eighth of the entire
U.S. economy, for the

      federal budget deficit alone! (Under George Bush, the federal deficit for 2008 was 3.2% of GDP. The deficit for fiscal year

      2007, in the last budget adopted when Congress was controlled by Republican majorities, was $162 billion, or 1.2% of GDP.)
#7. Includes $1 trillion in tax increases on the upper 5% of income earners, mostly tax rate increases.

      But the top 5% of income earners (those making over $145,283) already pays 60% of all income taxes.  

      Bottom 50% of income earners pay about 3% of the national income taxes.
#8. Projects that revenues from the corporate income tax will more than double in 3 years, increasing by more than 124%.
#9. Another $645 billion tax increase comes from Obama’s anti-global warming cap and trade system, which is essentially an

      energy tax on the production and use of carbon energy, such as oil, natural gas, and coal.
#10. While the Obama administration claims to have cut $2 trillion from the budget over 10 years, fully $1.5 trillion of those “cuts”

      actually represents the troop drawdown in Iraq, which was already scheduled to occur under the Bush administration.

      Of the remaining $500 billion in budget “savings,” fully $311 billion is categorized as “interest savings” but

      is actually an additional tax increase on upper income earners.


GOVERNMENT SPENDING DOES NOT STIMULATE

Most government spending has historically reduced productivity and long-term economic growth due to:

1. Taxes. Most government spending is financed by taxes, and high tax rates reduce incentives to work, save, and invest —resulting in a less motivated workforce as well as less business investment in new capital and technology.
2. Incentives. Social spending often reduces incentives for productivity by subsidizing leisure and unemployment.
3. Displacement. Every dollar spent by politicians means one dollar less to be allocated based on market forces within the more productive private sector….politicians seize that money and earmark it for favored organizations with little regard for improve­ments to economic efficiency;
4. Inefficiencies. Government provision of housing, education, and postal operations are often much less efficient than the private sector. Government also distorts existing health care and education markets by promoting third-party payers, resulting in over-consumption and insensitivity to prices and outcomes. Another example of inefficiency is when politicians earmark highway money for wasteful pork projects rather than expanding highway capacity where it is most needed.

BAILOUT FOR AUTOMAKERS

CARMAKERS BAILOUT: PIÑATA-CAR
*FACTS: WHY THE U.S. AUTOMAKERS FAILED
*WHY BAILOUT IS NOT THE ANSWER
*WHY BANKRUPTCY IS THE ANSWER

Why the U.S. Automakers Failed:

1) Union Workers were paid to NOT work
2) Abusive labor union requirements

● Wages $75 per hour. While
Toyota pays $48
● Health care adds $1,200 to the cost of each vehicle.

    But only $215 for Toyota
● Retire after 30 years of service, irrespective of age
● Seven weeks vacation
● Supporting More Retirees Than Active Workers
3) Idiotic government standards
● Making cars that Americans won’t buy
4) Excessive government interference
● Automakers have to pay for facilities they don’t use to support revenue bonds for municipalities
● State laws protect dealers from termination
BANKRUPTCY WILL ALLOW FOR:
● Labor contracts & pension plans to be renegotiated
