2010 Budget Breakdown

The charts below outline the budget breakdown for the 10 year budget proposal from President Obama. I have to admit that looking at the charts below, I think we are biting off more than we can chew. The increase in spending does not seem to be the proper thing to be doing now. I hope that as these proposals are examined and evaluated, that we trim some of the proposed increases and have the discipline to avoid, and eliminate, earmarks.


  1. So much of this depends upon how soon and how well the economy recovers.


  2. Thanks for raising my blood pressure! Looking at this give me the feeling I ger from looking down from the first hill of a roller coaster.

  3. Sadly no one will turn down the earmarks. It's too politically dangerous when the public is eager for 'free' $. Here in WI the Gov and the Mayor of Milwaukee are publicly discussing how they'll divy it up. Meanwhile the County Exec is being called a showboating job-seeker for refusing the stimulus money on principle, believing it risky and the wrong move. What a world.

  4. OK...I was feeling a little better from my pneumonia, but I think I just had a back-set (as us Tennesseans would say). I'm not feeling very secure with any of this. Only time will tell. We really have to pray a lot these days huh?
    Hugs, Joyce
    P.S. No whispering here....SNOW, SNOW, SNOW, SNOW, SNOW, SNOW etc. LMAO

  5. It is worrisome for sure! All I feel I can do is pray at this point that the right decisions will be made in the long run.



Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
