$2.91 trillion in taxes collected…
…but the USA is still broke because the idiots in Washington spent $3.51 trillion, resulting in a $621 billion deficit, not because 2016 receipts are slightly lower than last year’s. Nearly half the total came from individual income taxes, quite staggering when you realize that nearly half of us pay no federal income taxes at all.
And what do we have to show for it? An economy staggering towards another recession, a worn-out military, an FBI which can’t be trusted — heck, an entire government which lacks a single agency in which any sane person would place substantial trust.
I’m thinking of getting one of those T-shirts which cheerfully reads “DEPLORABLES”, the tag Queen Hillary — and indeed, all progressives secretly agree — has placed upon half of Trump supporters. I wouldn’t call myself a true supporter, but I will vote for him because I know what Hillary is and how supremely dangerous she is for my country. What will you do?
UPDATE: Terrence Jeffrey lays out beautifully the crisis created by our economically illiterate President and the supine and corrupt Congress.
