They can't reduce the stimulus without collapsing the economy. They can't continue the stimulus without eventually killing the value of the dollar through inflation. Basically, they can't stay where they are and they can't move. It's time to remove whatever wealth you have from this doomed system. Get out of paper and electronic assets (dollars, stocks, bonds, retirement funds), get out of debt, buy tangible assets (land, gold, silver, and the means of producing physical goods).
Liberals want to increase the size of government through welfare. Neocons want to increase it through warfare. Either way, the government gets bigger. That is one of the reasons I left the Republican party and joined the Libertarians.
This estimate assumes a vibrant, growing economy and full employment. This is a fantasy! This estimate also ignores the federal government's off-the-books financial obligations, such as social security, Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, federal and military pensions, student loan defaults, mortgage defaults on federal-insured mortgages, and the list goes on and on! Why in the world would you perpetuate such an erroneous notion as this?
