Democrats Bleeding Taxpayer’s Dry

A Republican Solution

by Dick McDonald, Ownership Society Institute

The $780 Stimulus Bill was rushed through Congress so fast no Senator or Representative ever read the bill. President Obama assured us that it was the economic stimulus that would keep unemployment under 8%. Now that unemployment has raced past 9.4% just a few months later the Democrat-controlled media is still refusing to tell the American public the truth about Obama’s gross mismanagement of this stimulus package. To date only 15% of the funds have been spent and only 1% on the job-creating shovel-ready job-creating infrastructure projects. To say President Obama is an incompetent is to insult incompetents everywhere.

So where has the 14% gone? You guessed it – to pay the salaries and pensions of state, county and city employees. In other words to keep government employees and their unions “paid off” instead of laid off like the private sector has had to do. No wonder no jobs have been created – this Marxist-in-Chief is creating a depression he thinks he will solve like FDR. The only problem is FDR had a 14% unemployment rate on December 7th, 1941. He never solved the depression – World War II did.

The City of LA, like all of California, is bleeding from over-spending by Democrats. Recently they “solved” a current departmental wage crisis by giving early retirement – at 55 years of age – to over 222 government workers at 90% of their last year’s salary. As those salaries averaged $100,000 a year the 30-year cost to taxpayers will be $2,700,000 plus COLA for each one of the 222 workers. This is where the Democrats have driven the economy – into paralysis by their mobs of inside-the-government workers padding their own paychecks and retirement out of your dwindling wealth.

And the American public hasn’t got a clue. The Democrat-controlled media no longer investigates – it merely is a propaganda machine – blindly driving us straight into a wall.

Now do you get it. This is where your stimulus tax dollars are going. Not to stimulate the private sector economy where the people are but to the government employees and their unions. The stimulus is not creating jobs as Obama promised – it is feather-bedding government employees. It is similar to what Democrats did in allowing unions to blackmail the auto companies into bankruptcy by underwriting $150,000 a-year manufacturing jobs. Obama, the Congress and the state assemblies are stealing from the taxpayers to fill their own purse.

This is not a free country anymore. It bears no resemblance to the country our Founder’s created. It is a totalitarian regime of Democrat elites unmercifully taxing ordinary Americans to fill the pockets of their ruling class of government employees. Using the lie that they are for social justice, Democrats are pushing ordinary Americans – especially the “little guy” they claim to represent further and further into poverty and despair.

The Republicans are bleating that all of this is unfair but no one is really listening to them because the Bush regime ran up big budget deficits and created income disparity that dramatically illustrated the distance between the ordinary citizen and his American Dream. Of course Republicans are banking on Obama’s failure so they can take over Congress again in 2010 and return the country to it normal semi-socialist state which will still leave ordinary Americans penniless and the country with a $60 trillion unfunded entitlement debt.

There is a “solution” to this madness. We will have to take the Republicans to the woodshed and whip them to within an inch of their life so they will consider doing something for the “little guy.” Patriotic Democrats embarrassed by 70 years of unfulfilled promises to the poor should all come on board.

Every American deserves to keep and invest his own money in the fabulous American economy and over a lifetime generate a million-dollar nest egg with which to retire affluently. He shouldn’t have to be highly educated just reasonably industrious and stable during his lifetime. The Founders would have endorsed that philosophy.

We at the Ownership Society Institute have developed such a plan. It involves the creation of a national pension plan in which governments (Federal, state, etc) will no longer have to impose those entitlement taxes (Social Security, Medicare, Disability and the many state and local taxes) on the people and industry will no longer have to provide their employees with supplemental old-age medical or retirement plans. Each individual taxpayer will retain ownership of his “payroll taxes” and automatically invest those funds over their working life into the economy to grow into sizeable nest eggs with which to retire.

The plan is called the Rise Up America(RUA) plan and as an added bonus it will immediately turn our potential depression into the roaring free-market economy. It will do this by infusing monthly over $125 billion of “new” investment capital (those payroll taxes) into the market to grow it algorithmically. Besides being the biggest tax cut in history it will cut the national budget in half and immediately retire over $50 trillion in unfunded entitlement debt. The old Social Security, Disability and Medicare benefits will never be reduced again but will remain as the floor under which no future RUA benefits can ever fall.

Think about the relief our government and industrial complex will experience when they no longer have to finance pensions and old-age medical cost. Think about the taxes we won’t have to pay to the Federal, state and city governments. With the guarantee of sizeable nest egg everyone needn’t demand such exorbitant salaries during their lifetime to fund their own retirement.

The states of California and New York are presently hemorrhaging. RUA is the tonic that will remedy that hangover.

RUA has devised many ways to transition from our existing programs to RUA’s plan. All methods will result in the increase of national wealth in such a great amount that the value of the US dollar will naturally increase. The infusion of such great sums of investment capital into the market will also substantially increase “economic activity” to such an extent that income tax receipts should double within four years allowing excess tax receipts to cover legacy entitlement costs with amounts left over to reduce the national debt.

Of course RUA needs national exposure. We plan to finance that campaign by contributions by patriotic Americans willing to go back to our Founder’s principles to revitalize the country. We need everyone’s help to spread the word and need everyone’s help to fund our publicity campaign to inform all Americans that investing 15.3% of their working life income for a no nest egg whatsoever is a grossly unfair Ponzi scheme that has be stopped. RUA is the plan to stop it. RUA substantially increases retirement benefits – 20 to 40 times more than current Social Security checks and a massive decrease in taxes taken by our government. It will also make our country a more stable and vibrant wealth creating machine.
