A moral issue: New budget has $1.2 trillion deficit
April 3, 2009
Congress and President Obama just don't get it! The new $3.6 trillion budget includes a deficit of $1.2 trillion. One third of the budget is deficit spending, money we don’t have! That is on top of the $12 trillion we already owe.
How much is $1 trillion? Consider this: A million seconds is 11.5 days. A billion seconds is 32 years. A trillion seconds is 32,000 years. We must strongly oppose the move to make ours a socialist country.
This reckless spending is a moral issue. We are passing on to our grandchildren a debt that we created. Every man, woman and child in the country already owes $35,000, and we are piling more debt on them. We are robbing them of their right to enjoy the American Dream.
On April 15, AFA is sponsoring TEA Party rallies in 1,672 cities to send a message to Washington that we want a fiscally responsible government. It is not too late to organize a TEA Party rally. But if you can’t organize a rally, contact the local organizer and ask how you can help. And be sure to attend and take a car load of friends with you to the rally.
