OBAMA'S IDEA OF CUTTING SPENDING, HHS IN 2011 IS LARGER THAN ENTIRE FED IN 1965
So even though most of you don't need further proof of Obama's socialist moves and his massive expansion of government, I still present this evidence for the few who still have doubts and somehow think Obama is moving to the center. For those who have no doubts about his socialism, this will be one more piece of news that will get your blood boiling and add to the anger you already have toward Barack Obama.
In 1965, the year that Lyndon Johnson signed into existence the Medicare and Medicaid programs the federal government spent $118.228 billion for ALL government spending. Adjusting for inflation this equals to $822.6 billion in 2010 dollars. Obama's department of Health and Human Services which oversees Medicare, Obamacare and other such programs will spend in fiscal 2011 $909.7 billion or $87.1 billion more than the ENTIRE federal government in 1965.
HHS is the largest agency in the government equaling more that one quarter of all federal spending and in Obama's 2012 budget he has increased that spending. The figures for 2011 do NOT include spending on Obamacare since the dollars spent have been excluded in both the 2011 and 2012 budget figures in order to lie to the American people about the true cost of Obama's debacle.
So adding in Obamacare to the mix will take HHS to well over one trillion dollars for just ONE agency of the Federal government. This as Obama is whining about spending and claims he has had a new found interest in cutting spending, deficits and attacking the debt. His increases in HHS alone show he has no interest in cutting or lowering the debt or deficits. All his socialist mindset wants is spending, government control and increased debt saddled onto the backs of our children and grand children....that is if the economy doesn't collapse from the weight of debt before the next generation.
