"The Power of the Purse"
Trey Gowdy says, “It's time we used the power of the purse to rein in Obama.” And he certainly needs “reining in.” He has spent more money than ALL the presidents who preceded him COMBINED! And he's still not done spending. His latest idea to get his hands deeper in your pocket is free community college tuition. He says it should be free, but doesn't say who is going to PAY for it. But one thing I know, without being an “economic genius,” and that is, YOU AND I are going to pay for it if he gets it in force, not him. “It should be free!” That's what liberals say about many things. But the inevitable fact is that, whatever it is, it MUST be paid for. If the recipient doesn't pay for it, somebody else must. And who is it that usually is tapped to pay? YOU; and me. The taxpayer is called upon to pay for many things, from which OTHERS are the only ones who benefit. This is SOCIALISM (one form of collectivism, just as is communism). Communism proved in Russia that it did not work, and the reason is that it is BASED on THEFT from the PRODUCER of new wealth while GIVING to the NON-PRODUCER. The “moocher,” who “wants a share” of what industrious people EARN, but without having to WORK and earn it themselves. This is “institutionalized theft,” and it's time we realize it. (Minuteman News)
