Why not increase taxes AND cut the deficit? That's what the common folk do when they have money problems - increase income And cut the budget. Amazingly, it gets them out of debt faster!
Idiots. Santelli ranting to the idiots.
To translate this for you idiots: Santelli wants you to ignore the inequities in the tax code because the deficits are astronomical. In other words, don't fix the inequities because they won't solve the deficits. What garbage !! It's called a red herring, you idiots.
I suspect most of the cheerleaders here belong to the 99%, and yet you cheer Santelli who is putting on his carnival act in support of the 1%. The tax code is screwing you, and you cheer it on.
Like I said, ranting to the idiots who can't see beyond the white-board-theatre.
I am surpirised Santelli is still on CNBC. They usually try to subdue the truth and promote Obama. I would expect him to head to Fox Business Network, before he gets fired. I love everything he has to say.
It used to be that CNBC thought of him as humorous, but he resonated so much with the audience, it scared them. Now they don't know what to do with him.
I have only seen one budget plan that gets the books in order. Almost all the media and mainstream politicos from BOTH parties denegrate the author, but I will vote for him anyway. Dr Paul 2012
I love this guy. I just hope msnbc appreciates him as much as most conservatives! I love his courage especially when his paycheck is payed out by msnbc. I believe.
Whatever happened to the TeaParty......instead we are obcessed with Buffet, Trayvon, birth control, wind power, etc. Wake up America!
The problem is, we in the tea party have jobs and responsibilities.....hard for us to change our schedules and go to tea parties, unlike the "occupy" losers who can stay there for weeks on end......we are still here and still believe in smaller government, just hard to get away for protests and rallies and rarely do we get lots of advance notice
Many of us tea partiers have been quietly working locally to get like-minded folks elected to state, county, and municipal offices, while keeping our eyes on what's happening nationwide. You'll see us as the election gets closer - but we will really make our presence felt at the ballot box in November. 2012 will be such a landslide it will make the 2010 results look like a tie.
They'll see us in November! We're still here, working hard locally to rid ourselves of RINO's and Dems and the rot in DC!
That was one of the best rants I have heard in a long time. Fantastic Rick. Keep on rocking my friend.
I was trying to make this point over at Hotair yesterday.
We have a 3.8 trillion dollar budget.
16+ trillion dollars in debt by the time polls close in November.
1.6+ trillion of that 3.8 trillion will be borrowed and added to our debt over the next 10 years. If you do a little math, you’ll see that in four years -- a presidential term -- our debt will be 22 trillion dollars.
But you don't have to go to the future for terrible news.
When you add in unfunded liabilities owed, like Social Security and Medicare, we actually owe a stunning $65+ trillion. That's today. To put that number in perspective -- the world GDP is 63.12 trillion. If you add in the unfunded liabilities of all the state and local government, we are looking at a three-digit liability.
And who are we picking to solve this problem?
Willard. Boehner. McConnell.
Ok, yeah, good luck with that. Keep patting yourselves on the back. You get rid of SCOAMF. Great. And then what?
Nobody seems to want to think that far ahead.
Does anybody believe these guys will stand up and not fold tent at the first sign of trouble? Do you see these guys fighting back when they're called un-American, and terrorists and suicide bombers, and racists? Do you see them fighting back when the heat gets turned up and poll numbers start falling when we tackle entitlements? Nobody wants to face this question. Entitlements will have to be tackled in the next four years if we are to survive. There’s no kicking the can down the road.
I just don't see it.
They're cautious, hesitant, exhausted, even fearful. It stinks.
Lol, he has passion that's for sure.
The whole war on the wealthy is just to appease the "don't haves" of the population so they go vote Democrat. No more, no less. It will not have a positive effect on our economy. It will hurt it even more....all so the Democrats can get more votes from people filled with envy. We have a party that is 100% devoted to power of the party without a care about what it does to the nation. Republicans should have been fighting back decades ago instead of waiting until we are at a point of no return.
Peter schiff and Gerald celente have both been saying for well over 2 years ... Our problem isn't that were aren't collecting enough taxes, its were spending more money than we could possibly pay back. At this pace, by 2035 there won't be enough combined wealth in the entire country to pay just the interest of our debt alone. That means that they would have to tax 100% taxes on 100% of Americans just to pay off the interest payments, never mind the principle. Folks there is only one way out of this mess, and they know it. They are going to purposesly destroy the dollar, and that's their end game. It always has been. Read up on life in Zimbabwe people, cause that's were Ganna be in less than 10 years. You know Zimbabwe, were it costs a trillion dollars to buy a loaf of bread. That's comming to the USA.
Santelli, the founder of the Tea Party. The debt can be paid off and future spending controlled. But it will take a Gov. Palin or a Speaker Gingrich to do it. They are the only ones who have and were hated for it.
Oh yeah, the problem seems intractable doesn't it? Yet, once any politician, any group, any debt commission, anyone at all, especially any Republican, or any bipartisan group, makes any effort to combat this problem, they are demagogued into the political gulag!
Ryan's budget simply slows the growth. Got that? Slows...the...growth. It allows spending to keep increasing each year only at a slower pace. Will something that innocuous fly? No it won't fly. It won't even crawl! That's called "balancing the budget on the backs of the poor".
So, let's look at that. The poor already exist on the backs of "rich" folks and middle income folks. They have been living on the backs of these middle and upper income folks since before I was a grammar schooler! Do the poor have anything at all on their backs? NO! They, themselves are on everyone else's back. They carry nothing at all on their backs, except sunscreen. They don't do jack crack to help anything.
Everything is on the backs of those who produce to make life better for everyone. Our government is committing suicide. It's torturing the American Dream, and morphing into something I no don't recognize or support. I love my country as it was founded and set up. What it is now, I cannot condone. I despise it. We need a hero and a series of miracles to accompany that hero.
We spent 28 trillion the last 10 years. Owebama wants to spend 47 trillion over the next 10 years. Ryan's budget wants to spend 40 trillion over the next 10 years. I ask, how is that "social darwinism" Mr. Owebama?
Time to talk truth. You are right. The majority of the poor are poor by choice. We live in an entitlement nation. as long as some people are content on living their lives, and raising their kids on welfare and entitlement programs, this country will not change. Why should they get a job and work to earn a living, when they can sit at home all day and let other people pay for their Shit. There was a video on YouTube were a woman ranted that wealfare didn't give her enough and that the American people owed her more. That's the mentality of the majority of the poor, not all. The government caters to theses people promising more free Shit and more entitlements for thier votes. The saddest thing is that then instill their beliefs on there kids, and they to become career wealfare recipients. There are 3rd and 4th generation career wealfare recipients out there because they are raised to believe that they are entitled to living off of other people. I've seen people buy hundreds of dollars of food at Walmart on the link card (Illinois food stamps) and I go outside and they are loading it into a brand new escalade. That makes me so f-ING mad, and I see it all the time. We need to severely limit entitlements, so that the bums who refuse to work, and are content to live iff the system need to get their assess up and get a damn job like the rest of us. And I bet you if that happened, the country would turn around in no time.
"The furniture is cheap in comparison", ain't that the truth. Envy, greed, covetousness and class warfare ain't cheap and that is what is driving us into bankruptcy.
One of Santelli's rants is attributed with helping galvanize the TEA Partiers into action, if I'm not mistaken.
It's great to watch the hosts who are soooo clearly uncomfortable with both his boisterous delivery and his inconvenient truth.
yep this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cy69lO0iNXM
LISTEN, Occupiers! Listen and learn...if that is even possible.
Bill Whittle has a great piece on "eating the rich". He runs down what happens when you tax all wealthy people at 100% and shows that it doesn't even make a dent. Bat and Switcheroo.
