As expected, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) voted against the Senate Democrat budget that he says call for about $1.5 trillion in tax increases and “piling on $7.3 trillion in debt over the next decade. Other Senate Republicans and four Democrat Senators joined Rubio in voting against Harry Reid’s budget.

According to Rubio, the plan would kill 850K jobs, slash household incomes by $1,512 per year.

 Here is what Rubio said about his vote-

 “After four years of hiding their true priorities, early this morning Senate Democrats made them very clear – tax increases and debt spending. They passed a radical tax and spend budget without any concern for what these things do to the middle class.

 “The Senate Democrat budget is so extreme and reckless that four Democrats who happen to be up for re-election voted against it. Our people deserve a serious plan to grow our economy and slow Washington’s debt spending.”-Senator Marco Rubio

    Well thanks for standing up against stupidity you guys.

    Federal spending will always increase forever. It is the nature of this beast and nothing can kill it. Government in general and the federals in particular are living on a fantasy island of unlimited pay offs graft and kickbacks from insider lobbyists and the corporations they work for. The politicians continue with their insider trading crimes, (a crime you and me would go to prison for but not them.) And as long as they all get a little richer it’s all good with them.

    In fact these corporations are the government ruling America. They are the reason the Pentagon and military industrial complex is waging wars of terrorism all over the world against sovereign nations that never lifted a finger towards the United States. They are the reason the food supply is laced with poison, hormone and antibiotics. They are the reason the kids get stuck full of poisonous vaccines which can cripple and kill and no one is called to justice for any of this. So what does one little guy do about it?

    Do not join the military. If you’re in the military get out. They can’t commit international acts of murder if there is nobody to pull the triggers for them. “The bankers and the diplomats are going off to war. They don’t need propaganda because they know what it’s for”.
    Try to the best of your ability to grow your own food, and avoid all processed foods as much as you can.
    Don’t buy things you don’t need. This is really hard because advertising is really good at making us think we need things, even though we lived our whole life just fine without it up until now. So to that I say turn off the TV set. Television is the most effective brain washing tool ever invented. Our brain is evolved to look at reflected light not into direct light. The purveyors of television have known this for fifty years. It’s how they quite literally hypnotize you when you’re looking at it.
    Don’t keep your money in a bank. With the recent events unfolding in Sypris and about to go global, money is soon to become worthless. The 100 year Ponzi scheme is about to peak and the death of the fractional banking scam is at hand. If you have money resources I suggest turning them into hard assets that you can make use of when money is no more.
    Well there is a thought or two for Sunday morning. Have a lovely rainy day!

      One more thing I forgot. I know it’s very difficult but if at all possible, get your kids out of the Communist government schools.

    Government has punished the people that worked hard and tried to provide for their future for the lazy and illegal voters.

    Everyone in Congress and Judges know taking the US down is by design for the elite bankers of the Federal Reserve to control everyone’s life and to take everything we have and they are too GUTLESS to take a stand for the US.

    Robbing taxpayers to pay for Obama and Representatives big donors, Muslim Brotherhood, controlling media, government takeover of education indoctrinating children into communism, false wars, oil prices, guns, weather, depopulation, and healthcare that is a death sentence for the elderly. All they care about is keeping their wealth rolling in.

    God will take care of what he created Life, Earth, Weather and Population he doesn’t need help from the UN or our government.
