why is the govt spending so much money
Debate Rounds (2)
Please explain why this is.
1) Massive spending on the new War on Terror combined with the untimely worldwide depression caused the government to be put into a squeeze since they could no longer fund the massive amounts of spending by taxing people since such taxes would only worsen the effects of the depression....
2) Since taxation can only fund so much, the only other tactic the government can use to lower spending is to make cuts to certain programs. But with such a divided Congress, its impossible for anyone to agree to cut anything, which is why spending remains so high.
3) Economic Stimulus's from the last 2 presidents meant to jump start the economy at the expense of the national debt fell flat on its a**, had little effect on the economy at all, and only raised the national debt to horrendously high levels.
4) Rather then try to put together an effort to significantly reduce spending, administrations just blame the one before them for being so fiscally irresponsible and then proceed on doing nothing very significant to try to reduce the debt.
I feel that if we would lower spending cost we could be out of debt, I can also ratify that not all people like Obama Point proven before. As I feel that I would also feel if u can in-depth explain your rebuttal just a little more Imabench and
Thank you for your time.
Seeing as how this wasnt really a debate and more of a conversation, I ask voters to simply make this a tie
