Federal spending and borrowing are way too high, like a morbidly obese patient that cannot stop eating. The debt and the borrowing are stagnating our economy and it will crash sooner or later, probably sooner. It’s time for the feds to get on a diet because it only gets harder the more weight, and debt, that you put on. We had wake-up calls in 2000 and again in 2008 but each time we just doubled down on the spending and borrowing so that no one went hungry and no one lost weight. But, we can’t spend and borrow, or eat, our way to health. And, there won’t be anything left to feed the kids.
It’s the debt that is killing our economy, not immigration or trade deals, those are just scapegoats. When the crash comes, it’s not going to do any good to blame immigrants or the Chinese. That will just be an excuse to duck the real problem, our own overspending. Angry fingerpointing at immigrants or the Chinese won’t fix the problem.
It’s time to start that diet before it is too late. I know what I am talking about because, as a physician, I have treated the morbidly obese in the ICU, and it usually ends badly. In fact, where a healthy Body Mass Index is 20 to 25, mortality rates approximately double for every 5 points BMI goes above 25. So, if it goes above 40, which is morbidly obese, mortality goes way up. That is where our spending and borrowing are. Our debt has doubled under Obama and the Democrats have no clue as to how to solve it. More taxes won’t solve the problem because that just leads to more overeating, not to a healthy weight. Just like there is a healthy weight for people, there is a healthy size for government. The one we have now is too obese. Our national debt is nearly the size of our entire economy and projected to skyrocket for as far as the eye can see. The off-the-books debt, mainly entitlements promised but unfunded, are much worse. Everyone knows that this can’t go on forever, and it won’t. There will be a much worse crash. The alternative is to get started on that diet.
The good news is that, as the weight comes off, the patient gets a lot healthier. The economy will pick up for everyone except the big spenders in government. We will have something to leave for our kids besides a broken-down, debt-ridden government like some we see if we look around.
