BUDGET CONTROL ACT OF 2011 EXPLAINED
Fresh from the script writers of the World Wrestling Federation , we find the 9 page “compromise” that is supposed to keep our boat afloat , AKA the Budget Control Act of 2011. Has it ever been more clear the games that are played in DC? Like the ABC Made-for-TV Movie of the week, the happy ending appears the day before the so called D-Day (Debt-Day?). Could someone remind these 536 people that even with a 10% unemployment rate, that means there is another 90% of the working population that are still having deductions taken from their checks and forwarded to the government to spend. I really wished they would have let the time expire to prove that it was all smoke and mirrors.
If you click the link above you will find the 9 pages of these Sacred Writings known as BCA 2011. You have to read it on line, it will not print. But here are some of the “low-lights” of the Bill;
- ENsures that if any part of the bill is Unconstitutional, the rest is still Valid.
- ENfuses a 1985 Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act with spending exemptions for “emergency appropriations”, and additional spending to combat WASTE, Fraud and Abuse (?)
- ENables Congress to designate what is an “Emergency” to increase spending.
- ENdless Spending limits. If the President cannot prove that the budget is within $100 billion, then the Treasury can borrow up to $900 billion . ($100 billion away from a trillion if my math is correct) I Choose Door Number 3
- ENcourages the Treasury to Borrow $1.2 Trillion if Congress can’t agree on what color the sky is.
- ENacts the Treasury to borrow an additional $1.5 trillion even though “all increases in borrowing authority are subject to Congressional DIS-approval” (?)
- ENforces sequestro pro rata, better known as the Kum-By-Yah Doctrine.
- ENlists Sequestration Procedures in Section 302. This is when you ” reduce the discretionary spending limits and include sequestration procedures for direct spending to ENsure these are achieved”. Got it?
- ENdemnifies a Joint Committee . Because of inflation, the “Gang of 6″ is the now the “Committee of 12″. So now our ENtire Economy can be directed by twice as many people.
- ENlarged Committee uses a new word “Revenue Measure” because “TAX” sounds so icky.
- ENhances the pay of those on the committee because they are experts in “Rule Making”
- ENrolled Students will have no more incentives for on-time repayment of student loans.
I ENcourage you to check it out yourself. I see all this as having one ENding; an ENlarged Deficit, an ENtangled web of double-speak , ENdless ENtitlements, and an ENdangered Economy. I just hope that most of these 536 do not get an ENcore in 2012. I believe the ENemy is within, Washington just needs a good ENema. Feel ENlightened , Now?
