Why are Politicans and Bankers getting paychecks????



March 09, 2010 – Comments (5)

When you built an economy based on lend and spend, and you lever it up to massive levels.......once you cut off credit to the Private Economy......soon the private economy shuts down.  Most of our labor force works in the private sector.  Once the private sector dries up, revenues to government evaporates.

Just wait until Fools learn that their retirement/investment funds kept the public companies and municipalities on life support last year by lending them OVER $1 trillion dollars. 

Think about it, with $3 trillion (over 20% of GDP) borrowed last year by both government and Wall Street....our economy is still dying.

Right now, if banks and government were to fairly report financials......most would be bankrupt.

We should be giving Politicans and Bankers loans...NOT PAYCHECKS.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Any immediate effort to trim the federal budget deficit would only nip the recovery in the bud, said Christina Romer, the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers on Tuesday. "The sensible way to address the deficit is with a long-run plan," Romer said in a speech to the National Association for Business Economics. More fiscal stimulus is needed to try to jump start job creation, Romer said. "It is virtually impossible to get the deficit under control when the unemployment rate remains near 10%," Romer said.

No Ms. is IMPOSSIBLE for you to keep getting a salary and get the deficit under control.  And with the deficit exploding...we are still losing millions of jobs per year.
