You Think DC Is Fighting Back Now? Just Wait Until President Trump Submits His Budget….

If you think the UniParty attacks upon President Trump are vitriolic now, just wait until President Trump presents his budget proposal to congress; that’s when the UniParty is really going to go bananas, and every crony-conservative pundit and radio talker will simultaneously demand Trump immediately spend more money.

budget-battle-1These politicians will demand more spending.  Notice anything familiar about them?

The federal fiscal year runs from October 1st to September 3oth annually. The Budget and Accounting Act of 1921 requires the President to submit his budget request for the upcoming fiscal year no later than the first Monday of February.

However, in the first year of the first term of each administration – congress waives the statutory deadline because so much of the election and campaign is structured around fiscal budget and tax policy.  The waiver gives the incoming administration time to construct their budget after the inauguration.  Historic reference:

  • Year One Bill Clinton budget was delivered on 4/8/93  (66 days past deadline).
  • Year One GW Bush budget was delivered on 4/9/01 (63 days past deadline).
  • Year One Barack Obama budget was delivered on 5/11/09 (98 days past deadline).

Currently President Trump is in the process of putting his budget together.  Heck, the Senate hasn’t even confirmed Trump’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director, Mick ‘Cantalopes‘ Mulvaney.

But one thing is abundantly clear President Trump has already stated his expressed intention to bring the federal budget to balance within his first term.

To comprehend the scope of this budgetary dynamic, consider the first four months of fiscal year 2017 (October 1, 2016 through Jan 31, 2017) which was just announced:

eat-your-own-damn-peas1♦ Receipts through January totaled $1,084 billion [$1.08 trillion], CBO estimates—$5 billion more than the amount for the same period last year.

♦ Outlays for the first four months of fiscal year 2017 were $1,243 billion [$1.24 trillion], CBO estimates—$4 billion more than they were during the same period last year.

If not for shifts in the timing of certain payments from October 2016 to September 2016 because October 1 fell on a weekend, outlays would have been $45 billion (or 4 percent) greater.

The Federal Government took in a record $1.08 Trillion, and yet spent $1.24 Trillion.

That’s running a 13% deficit spending rate of $159 billion more than the treasury took in (mostly due to ObamaCare).

Tomorrow, President Trump is meeting with retail CEO’s to discuss economic growth:

[…]  The meeting will include Target CEO Brian Cornell, Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly, Gap Inc CEO Art Peck, Autozone Inc CEO William Rhodes, Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc CEO Stefano Pessina, J.C. Penney Company Inc CEO Marvin Ellison, Jo-Ann Stores LLC CEO Jill Soltau and Tractor Supply Co CEO Gregory Sandfort, according to the people familiar with the matter.

This is the first time well-known retail CEOs will descend on Washington as a group to try to make the case that a controversial proposal to tax all imports will raise consumer prices and hurt their businesses.

Their input has more urgency as Trump is finalizing his own tax plan that he plans to unveil in the coming weeks.  (read more)

No single issue will lose President Trump more voter support than if he caves on this budget and allows the UniParty to continue deficit spending.  Accounting gimmicks are not going to work any longer.  The SSI trust funds have been emptied and void.  Federal spending to prop up Obamacare is blowing a $1.3 trillion hole in the budget each year, and it’s getting worse.

Those who have lived by scheme and graft amid the DC Swamp are going to fight to keep the spending levels as high as possible; and we can well expect to see the idiots who attend CPAC each year begin to broadcast messages that President Trump must spend more.

Wait for it…

five stooges never trump

…Some of those who will demand more spending.  Watch!

      The problem with that is every proposal to eliminate the income tax I’ve seen ignores the problem of people that have saved money and already paid the taxes on it when they earned it.

      For a lot of retired people (like me) that scrimped and lived beneath their means to save money for retirement, our life savings would now be taxed again as they are spent.

      This isn’t an oversight; it is a way to double tax the people who have responsibly saved for their retirement or for any other need for that matter,

        Pretend it is all up to you, and you get the make the choice.

        Option A – you (and everyone else) pays sales tax on purchases for the rest of your life. Every IRS employee is fired. Well, laid off, technically, but it feels good anyway. Every IRS building is burned to the ground. Every year on April 15th, crowds gather near the local rubble heap to piss on the ashes.

        Option B – You live tax free for about 8 years, then the next Democrat to get into the White House nationalizes all of your investments. The IRS is now in charge of your “MyRA”. 50% of the remaining value gradually evaporates. The courts eventually decided that MyRA is an entitlement, and not a personal account, and you leave nothing to your heirs.

            No need. The vast bulk of commerce happens in software run by big companies, either home grown systems in giant retailers, or large service companies used by small retailers. Those systems are auditable – the will be very little cheating on scales that anyone cares about

            If you mow your neighbor’s lawn in exchange for him fixing your computers, the system can afford to miss that. Even better, we could – should – write in exceptions for that sort of thing. Respect for the rule of law is not enhanced by making everyone a secret criminal. Much wiser to figure out the situations when people are likely to cheat, and make those situations exempt.

          Option C? I don’t like either A or B. A flat tax would be easier and we can still gut the IRS. Truth be told, just lowering ALL the tax brackets will do it for now. Let Trump decide in his 8th year if that needs to change.

      On cutting the spending: This time we need to be ahead of a threat to “shut down the govt.” (which we all know doesn’t shut down the emergency or important things that have to happen). So, if Sundance (or someone on the blog who knows how to do it) can get a petition going NOW stating support of a balanced budget at all costs; even a govt. shutdown; we’ll all sign it and get others to do so. If we do that, then it gives Trump more fuel to cut spending and fight the backlash from MSM, as he already has a huge number backing him.
      Any ideas along this line?

    One photo (congressman) is missing. US House Rep Kevin Brady (R-TX) 8th District.
    Brady is Paul Ryan’s hand pick for Chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. Notice how he is suddenly speaking out and showing up on news shows? Cloaking his voting record and stating ‘tax reform’ is coming. Brady is a dyed in the wool “Better Way” proponent and is attempting to promote himself as a ‘protector’ of President Trump’s tax records. Sucking up.

    One of the sneaky swamp creature moves that Brady is employing is holding President Trump’s move to eliminate the Johnson Amendment (JA). He is inserting it in the “Better Way” supposed tax reform bill, when the JA can easily be a stand alone action with a brief one page bill. This move basically holds President Trump’s JA action hostage to getting approval, if Trump will go with the Ryan / McCarthy / Brady thousand page tax-reform written by the lawyer lobbyist.

      Kevin Brady is on the ropes in the 8th District. The district takes in The Woodlands, north to Conroe and on into Huntsville. While he had no democrat opponent in the general election, he had a serious challenger in the republican primary – Steve Toth. Candidate Trump overwhelming won this district in Texas and Brady knows this.
      Brady skimmed by a run-off with 53%, while Steve Toth captured 38%. The GOPe pulled the same maneuver, they are notorious for when one of their own is in serious trouble of losing the primary. They find and clandestinely support another opponent to pull from the true conservative (America First) movement.

    I don’t agree with Sundance on this one.

    Trump has sent decidedly mixed messages on the budget. He promised a large infrastructure spending program and no cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

    And one thing that the campaign showed was that Trump, and his base, cared surprisingly little for the small government conservatism of the right wing think tanks.

    Trump is a developer. He is all about growth. He likes tax cuts too. That means deficit spending. Watch for it.
