Marc Allan Feldman on Budget & Economy

 

 


Increasing government spending doesn't improves the economy

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Stimulus better than market-led recovery"?

A: Oppose. There is no good evidence that increases in government spending improves the economy overall. Government does not make a profit, so any increase in spending is directly tied to current increases in taxation, future increases in taxation because of borrowing, or sales of government assets. Each of these represents a loss of property to the American citizens. Government spending is already nearly 30% of total economic productivity. A growing and healthy economy will require a smaller less intrusive government and a larger, more productive and successful middle class.

Balance our budget by cutting spending

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Higher taxes on the wealthy"?

A: Oppose. We need to balance our budget by cutting spending. We can do it by slashing funds going to Democratic and Republican special interests. The wealthy will pay their fair share when we end corporate welfare and political cronyism.
