Runaway Spending

Before Meriwether Lewis and William Clark began their epic trip to explore the Louisiana Purchase lands in 1804, President Jefferson requested $2,500 from the United States Treasury.

Before Meriwether Lewis and William Clark began their epic trip to explore the Louisiana Purchase lands in 1804, President Jefferson requested $2,500 from the United States Treasury. Back in those days, public servants respected taxpayer funds and were good stewards. When the trip ended, Lewis and Clark sold the remaining equipment and returned the funds back to the Treasury. They were faithful stewards of taxpayer funds. My, how things have changed.

The United States now has a “climate envoy” named John Kerry. He is a long time Washington insider, an establishment type. Apparently, his job is to solve global warming. He flies around the world in his private jet and lectures everyone else about the dangers of carbon emissions. He was recently asked how to achieve his goals, and he responded “money, money, money, money, money, money, money”. Of course, he’s talking about your money, not his.

As Kerry and other progressives think of more ways to separate you from your money, the national debt has soared right past $30 trillion. The Congressional Budget Office projects not a single balanced federal budget in the next 30 years! The federal government is broke.
