To generate the revenue needed to pay for a huge Federal bureaucracy there are two choices. Increase taxes on people or grow the economy. The economy can only grow with a healthy private sector. Increasing taxes on people takes money from the private sector and inhibits growth. Obama's entitlement policies are anti growth, so the only option left to pay for the bureaucracy is taxation.
The bloated federal government has now created so much debt that the people who created it, will not be alive to pay for it. You my young friend will have to work to pay the debt.
A trillion dollars seems like just another number, larger than a billion but we can handle it can't we? If we paid off a trillion dollar debt at the rate of a dollar a second, it would take 32,000 years to pay off that debt. We are in debt seventeen trillion dollars. You will spend your life paying off the debt your parents and I racked up and the debt will last after you grow old and die.
Paying off the debt will not be possible in your lifetime and yet we continually find creative ways to add to it, just like Obamacare. We are exchanging the land of the free and the home of the brave for the land of indentured servants hiding behind the patriot act.
Good luck with your future.
