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!

    “Notice anything familiar about them?”
    Wait… wait…
    I got it!
    They are a bunch of stuffy old white guys who want nothing to change! (Rubio included!)
    Did I win anything?

  2. Thanks Sundance! I’ve been waiting for you to cover this!

    • Tee says:

      Same vote of “thanks” here.
      These Redstate Media moguls that sit behind a mic every day are ENTIRELY vested in the status quo of no change in big govt. Of course many like Levin and Beck have been paid off to shill for one establishment candidate or another while they try to claim impartiality. The never-Trumpers who want more Bush R govt have lost all credibility.

    What can we do? I want to support and help President Trump but what role do we grassroots have now? How do we help now that the war has turned to battles within DC?

    • I agree, how can we help? We knew this was coming, the establishment and the globalist are being threatened. I want to know a way to really help and let the Trump administration and the MSM know we stand with Trump. Any ideas?

      • Fe says:

        More of the same: Keep sending post cards, emails, tweets of encouragement to PDJT to stay the course. Call, send emails, post cards threatening our congress critters with being primaries if they fail to support the PEOPLE’S PRESIDENT. Donate to DJT’s website to finance ad buys.

    • wondering999 says:

      I was thinking about that today. Obviously we need to pray.
      But what else?

    • ruralnc says:

      Yes, there is much we can do. To paraphrase Orwell from 1984: “If there is hope, it will come from the proles.” We are the proles, the common folk. Find your county GOP and become active. Support it fully; make it as strong as possible. Mine is working hard at all levels; our chairwoman has devoted her life to the cause, and we are an active group. Working locally with like-minded people will overcome much adversity in the long run. Our long-term goal is to educate our citizens about what Sundance teaches. It will be a hard battle in this poor, uninformed place. This prole, however, has much hope.

      Let them know that each passing day is one day closer to 2018.

    • Aparition42 says:

      Become a deep cover operative for the insurgency. Go out into enemy territory and calmly and politely offer alternative viewpoints. Question their leadership. Frequently point out their failures, not as the opposition, but as a lamenting ally. Constantly remind them how the DNC stabbed Bernie Sanders in the back. Blame Hillary, Debbie Schultz, Tim Kaine, Nancy Pelosi, and even Obama for their abysmal failure in the election. Point out how none of the Congressional Democrats are fighting for Transgender Rights anymore. Say the sanctuary cities are turning their backs on Black Lives Matter. Blame Muslims in the party for abandoning Gay rights. Blame white people in the party for abandoning civil rights. Lament how hopeless their cause is. Make sure you assign blame for their predicament within the party. Be the voice of doubt constantly whispering in their ears. Keep them fighting amongst themselves. Anytime a 2020 contender is suggested, instantly start nitpicking them. Divide and conquer. If you’re in a deep blue district, actually register with the Democrat party and try to primary their incumbent.

      • Interesting idea Aparition42 “register as a democrat”.
        That is something that I have never actually thought about doing.
        But I might consider it now.
        Register as a democrat and attend some of their meetings.
        Do what you suggest, point out their failings sorrowfully, sadly.
        With a lot of sympathy lament how hopeless their cause is.
        I know you were somewhat sarcastic but it is not really a bad idea at all.

      • Mickey Wasp says:

        Ditto … I’ve been advocating on several sites that the way to defeat the democrats is to cause division within their ranks, cause a wedge to be driven between their old leadership and the new millennials they say are coming on board. I regularly go on leftist sites and cloak myself in ‘democrat concern’ and even liken myself as protester and wonder why only the ‘leaders’ get paid for standing up. I also do the go between and ask if it is true that the Hillary campaign colluded with the DNC to defeat Bernie.
        It takes some practice but is very effective.

    • Trumppin says:

      Hold them accountable.. That’s what Steve Bannon said for us to do
      I take that is be very vocal and every where in every way.

    • Deb says:

      Call your Congressmen and demand they enact Trump’s agenda. Attend townhall meetings and hammer your representatives and make them tell you to your face if they support Trump’s policies. Pay attention to state and local politics to make sure that MAGA is happening on the local level as well.
      And spread the truth of what is really going to the people you know. Help dispel the media myths and propoganda on social media.

      • Aparition42 says:

        Well said. Local politics really is the key. Best case scenario, we have President Trump for 8 years. We’re going to need a real MAGA bench full of replacements ready and waiting in the wings. We can’t rely on the shell of the former Republican party. The insurgency must take over at every level, Congress, Governors, State legislatures, Mayors, Alderman, Sheriffs, School Boards, Dog Catchers even. If you can’t find a candidate that’s worthy of our support, announce your own candidacy here. How great would it be to have Treepers taking over the government?

      • tellthetruth2016 says:

        Ask the question that Diamond and Silk asks : Would these Politicians leave their doors unlocked at night or let strangers come in and stay in their homes ???? When they say , No, of course not, then ask why they expect us to when Politicians will Not secure our borders to protect Americans and their families ……

        • tellthetruth2016 says:

          I would add, If Americans do not need a wall to protect our country, then WHY does Paulie RINO and Obummer need walls around their homes ???? What do they need protection from ??

    • What can we do, keep the faith. It may seem like nothing is happening, but there is change. I have a small business and have a gal (21) that comes in and helps me a couple hours a day. She has a boyfriend (a restaurant cook) that comes with her sometimes. Before the election we never talked politics. They were indifferent to it.
      Her stepdad has a manufacturing business in NY. He was after her to vote for Trump. I didn’t say much to her and her boyfriend until about a month before the election.
      At election time I did get them to vote Trump. Kinda jumped on her stepdad’s bandwagon and used him for an impetus.
      After the election, I’ll bring up Trump once in awhile but never any deep discussion from them, mainly a head nod or so.
      A lot of my customers do a lot of international travel, Europe, Italy Australia etc.
      Out of the blue yesterday, she said to me “I wouldn’t want to travel overseas now, it’s too dangerous.” Of course I followed up with it’s dangerous in the US too.
      Anyway the point of this is, even for some of the young folks with little interest in politics, they are starting to pay attention. The perception is changing that there is a big bad world out there. This isn’t much but who knows. When they are with their peers, partying or whatever, I think there is now some discussion about our country. I don’t think 2 years ago she would ever have made a statement like this.
      Oh, and I went with the wife to Red Robin for sandwiches yesterday wearing my MAGA cap (still) and a young couple in the booth next to us, the young gal said “like your hat”. Found out they were military, just dressed in civvies. As we left, they said, “thanks for your service”. I did the same to them.
      And this is in that putrid blue speck (northern colorado). in Sundance’s Red Trump State Map.
      A rambling post but, keep the faith and Make America Great Again.

      • Hang in there BlindSquirrel.
        You say you live in the ” putrid blue speck ” of northern Colorado and I know it must be hard.
        My son and his family lives in Ft Collins.
        They are fortunate to have a lot of conservative friends but the atmosphere is mostly liberal.
        Maybe because of the college.
        I love the area myself, it is just beautiful.

    Circular time is where you see both the past and future, and on and on. I think circular time is the way it works, we just aren’t advanced enough to get it yet.
    Everything is happening now as it should. Don’t worry, just go with it.

    Why it’s the who’s who of Uniparty loyalists, busily planning for pork allocations just like the good old days. I live in California, and the only contingent screaming louder than these twits will be the Uniparty California delegation. Not only are they in for a surprise when the Trump budget is released, but California has survived for years on federal waivers, about $2 billion in value, on welfare and other Medicaid programs. For years CA has conferred lavish welfare and medical benefits in response to pressure from care-giver unions like SEIU. Those waivers will not be granted. CA has no money to pay for these services without federal bailouts. Despite this, politicians here continue to bash Trump on a daily basis. A reckoning is coming, hahaha

  15. Niagara Frontier says:

    Sundance…a suggestion and technical correction to the article since I know your material is shared widely in other places and accuracy is important to you.
    There is no such thing as an SSI trust fund. The Social Security Administration has two trust funds: OASI (Old Age and Survivors Insurance) and DI (Disability Insurance). Sometimes they are combined such as in the term “OASDI trust funds”. In your case it might be best to simply say “Social Security trust funds.”
    SSI stands for Supplemental Security Income, which is a federally administered welfare program for the aged, blind and disabled. These funds are paid from general revenues and have no connection to either of the Social Security trust funds.

    • Howie says:

      Disability has become an unemployment insurance for life for many that are not disabled.

      • Red says:

        While our Seniors and Veterans are suffering and barely making ends meet, if at all.

      • Southern Son says:

        How can I disagree with that Howie?
        The sad thing for me is, I have Degenerative Disc Disease, and struggling to keep working as long as I can.
        Although I have paid in More than a Fair Share, to SSI and RRDI, the majority was to SSI. Which is in the Red.

      • justfactsplz says:

        Yet there are many truly disabled who would much rather be working. Those who abuse the system unfortunately give a bad name to all who are on such programs.

        • If you check out the requirements for a disability determination, you’ll find that there is a list of conditions and criteria that one must meet. What I found interesting is that if you are educated, you can be declared to not meet a disability, even though Juan just got here and because he is uneducated and hasn’t worked, he would be declared disabled.
          For disability purposes, the agency looks at the work one has done for the past fifteen years and then determines if there is other work you could do anywhere in the U.S. with your “transferrable skills.” The more educated and varied your work experience, the more likely you are to have “transferrable skills.”
          In this case, an uneducated, lazy illegal alien has a more likely chance at being deemed disabled than someone who showed some initiative.

          • janc1955 says:

            These situations make me NUTS.

          • justfactsplz says:

            Age has a lot to do with it, too. The older you are the more likely you are to get it over a young person. Also there are points for the different disabilities they go by. I do believe minorities get it easier than whites. They claim they have bad backs yet can leap through windows to steal from stores and jump up and down vandalizing cars in a riot.

  16. Martin says:

    Can’t wait to see Trump’s budget plan. Hopefully and should be a massive spending cut. Need to get rid of the $20 trillion debt as quickly as possible.

    • Keln says:

      Personally, I think tax cuts and economic reforms are more important in the short term than the national debt. Get people to work and off the government dole. That cuts spending automatically, and increases revenues. But without a strong economy, cutting the debt doesn’t really accomplish much, just like a company that is debt free but not really making much profit doesn’t help it’s shareholders.

      • Martin says:

        Oh I agree with you. Definite massive tax cuts and economic reforms are the way to go, but we have got to stop spending money we don’t have.

        • PatriotKate says:

          The best way is to develop an 8 year Strategic Plan to downsize the Federal Government by 90%. It has ballooned in the last 15 years. He’s already put a hiring freeze on as a start and then needs to cut a minimum of 10% per year on top of attrition. Most of their functions, if needed at all, belong to the states anyway. Lots of Departments to get rid of. Their Federal power has to be cut back to the enumerated functions outlined in The Constitution.
          I agree with Keln that we need to get the tax cuts and economy going first. Because if he really pushes cutting the deficit, guaranteed both parties will push for austerity cuts that hurt us and not their precious, bloated bureaucracy. His moves with Lockheed and Boeing, in particular, were really just signals to the DC creatures that cuts are coming.
          I am deeply troubled by all appearance of turmoil and concerned that the NeoCons will pull out all stops to prevent President Trump from draining the swamp and rooting out the corruption. I believe there is a Brutus lurking about in the White House.

  17. alliwantissometruth says:

    Yeah, when you think about all the implications of a Trump White House, WOW. It disrupts not only DC, but the entire power structure on our planet
    The push back will be historic. President Trump is about to disrupt & change the most powerful cog within that power structure, DC. That in turn will have implications worldwide
    Think about that. Trump will have the power, the real power on this planet, the power that’s been controlling things forever, losing it’s mind & going after him
    This is a revolution bar none. A historical mind f*** of massive proportions. If he / we can pull this off, it’s going to be epic
    Strap yourselves in ladies & gents. Stay strong & stand behind our leader. It’s going to get rough, but the ride will be worth it

  27. rumpole2 says:

    Ah… I see the problem!
    Draining the swamp just exposes all the swamp creatures… they are just agitated as the water recedes.

    Not sure how everything else will play out, but hopeful that we can open up educational opportunities to have higher quality at lower cost. Praying hard

  29. Keln says:

    Seems like it would be a near insurmountable challenge to really cut that much spending, plus rebuild the military, plus infrastructure, plus his proposed tax cuts, all in his first couple of years. Not that Trump couldn’t balance the numbers, but that Congress would never allow the cuts necessary.
    Which is funny considering the GOP owns Congress, and how so many in the GOP claim to be fiscal conservatives who complain about spending all of the time…right up until they have to vote on cutting spending.

    Inside The Secret Campaign To Oust Flynn
    “The Obama administration knew that Flynn was going to release the secret documents around the Iran deal, which would blow up their myth that it was a good deal…they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced.”

  31. How far has Ben Shapiro fallen? He was a rising star 18 months ago.
    Now, he is mostly persona-non-grata among the right wing.

  32. KBR says:

    One simple thing would help a whole lot, I think. Spending is out of control partly because of the way disbursements for next year depend upon whether all the money requested in the year previous was utilized.
    Restructure this so that saving money and spending less (ontime and under budget) is rewarded instead of being penalized.
    Look at it this way. Say you give your teen an allowance once a month, $100.00. And if he only spends $75 before time to give him his next allowance, you area gonna take the $25 he didn’t spend away, and give him $25.00 less from then on to boot! ?
    But, if he spends every cent, he stands a good chance of getting an increased allowance.
    So, the kid quickly learns to spend every single cent before allowance day rolls around again, otherwise he loses bigly. ?
    He has no incentive to save a single dime, or budget carefully. He cannot save up for anything he wants that costs more than his allowance for one month. In fact, if its getting close to allowance time, and he has left-over $, he will spend it fast and on things he does not need nor want.
    That is exactly how it is done in DC.

    • Keln says:

      Exactly, and it has been done that way for a long time. As an example, the hospital I was born in (a Naval hospital in Japan) was fully renovated…just before being completely torn down. Why? Because the money was earmarked for renovation, and it had to be spent. An absolute waste of money, and it happens all of the time.

        This happened at an Air Force hospital when my mother was running the ER. They even had to purchase all the equipment, when they knew it would be shut down in four months.

      And that, kids, is Baseline Budgeting.
      “There have been attempts to eliminate the baseline budget concept and replace it with zero based budgeting, which is the opposite of baseline budgeting. Zero based budgeting requires that all spending must be re-justified each year or it will be eliminated from the budget regardless of previous spending levels.” -Wikipedia

    • mimbler says:

      I remember 45 years ago as a 17 year old army soldier being dismayed at the end of fiscal year spending surge to use whatever budget we had. Even at that age, I had worked a number of years before joining and was well aware of taxes coming out of my wages,

      • Deb says:

        Unfortunately, this is also the attitude at most schools. The last minute buying of things they don’t need because they can’t have any money left in the budget at the end of the fiscal year. They wouldn’t want to risk a budget cut if it was shown they could get by with less.

    • Kroesus says:

      I once read years ago that 10% of the FY budget is spent from 15-30 Sep often for stuff that is not needed at the time and requires short or long term storage which the government also pays for……then they have periodic sales of government “surplus” for authorized buyers who get it at a discounted price….nice gig for those insiders

    My guess is none of them ever hammered a nail, layed a foundation, lived through some bad deals, got back up on his feat and signed payroll checks for thousands of people.
    President Trump is no god, but he is the right guy at the right time with the right experience and skill sets to make America great again, if he uses his experiences to that end and he learns to smite the vipers and ticks in our government.
    Always said the real battle begins once he’s elected and that’s where we are now.
    If he continues to lead, he willnbe fine and so will we, perfected cabinet or not.

    Here is how you can help. Contribute to F.I.R.E. and the EFF and other civil rights groups. We need lawsuits to fill the courts. Report criminal activity to the FBI. Every time you read a blog article get in the comment section and mention this website and the implications of the GOP membership in the Uniparty. Stop complaining about democrats and complain about republicans and the Uniparty. I noticed that the term “Deep State” is everywhere on the internet and radio these days, that is a success. Call the talk shows about the Uniparty and GOP complicity. Build a meme that more and more people understand.

    • dekester says:

      I have often wondered about that term Uniparty..I would have thought it could be used with effect, by tea party members, and other right of centre organizations.
      The term Uniparty was one I had never heard prior to Sundance and TCTH.
      I have shared it with friends up here in Canada, and they think very appropriate for our clowns too.

        Here is a way to stop the faking. Instead of counting the people that get unemployment, which they fall off after awhile, count the number of people employed full time and part time. They have that dat from the taxes that are collected every month.

    • mimbler says:

      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,

      • kjj says:

        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.

        • Rex Brocki says:

          Option A… with lotsa barter! (LOL).
          Seriously, the sales tax is so easy to beat (usually completely legally), they’d need TWO guys with guns standing behind every cashier in America (and they don’t HAVE that many guys with guns!). Bwoo-ha-ha-ha-ha!

          • kjj says:

            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.

        • nhgardengram says:

          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.

      • TPW says:

        Here is a plan …..buy only what is necessary………stop buying to keep up with the Jones’s…..I mean who needs granite counter tops and every other thing that is thought up by the retailers…….If they don’t tax necessities…….I will do fine…

        • mimbler says:

          I should be able to buy whatever I want with my previously taxed money. And if you think they won’t tax necessities, I think you will be very unpleasantly surprised.

    Anybody know if the guy in the upper left of the photo is Grover Norquist? I’ve never seen him without glasses. But I know he is identified closely with CPAC. I have always been highly suspicious of both Norquist and CPAC. However, Glenn Beck — how could he have done what he did for us in 2010 and 11 and then turned around and become a globalist? I thought it was simply nuts. I hope Sundance explains that part.

  62. Yeah this budget thing is going to lead straight into a total government shutdown (outside of things like military and police).
    But you know what? That would be wonderful. I look forward to it. It would be even better than a balanced budget over 4 years. We’ll have a budget surplus overnight instead and send a huge number of dead weight government employees packing. Sounds good to me.

    • nhgardengram says:

      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.

    • Mickey Wasp says:

      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.

  66. Paul says:

    It’s been long proven (e.g. RW Bradford in the old Liberty Magazine) that spending goes up when the same party holds both Congress and the Presidency. Will Trump break that mould? Reagan sure didn’t.

    • Pinkie says:

      Neither did GW Bush. Bill Clinton produced surpluses by the end of his term but he had a the internet boom to help tax receipts and a GOP Congress to restrain him

  67. Pinkie says:

    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.
