$21 trillion in unaccounted spending to the war machine. It’s funny, that’s the same amount of debt out country carries.
“While the documents are incomplete, original government sources indicate $21 trillion in unsupported adjustments have been reported for the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Urban Development for the years 1998-2015.”
In recent decades, the Office of Inspector General has reported some $21 trillion (you read that right) in unsubstantiated payments by the Departments of Defense and Housing and Urban Development. It’s time for Congress to investigate these outlays and their funding source.
Never forget what happens when government and corporate oligarchs merge. This photo, taken a few days ago, is not of a forgotten World War I battlefield. It is on Cabin Creek, West Virginia. From this machine gun nest, or “pillbox,” corporate employees fired automatic weapons at coal miners, their wives, and children for the capital offense of trying to join the union. This was done with the full knowledge and blessing of the government. With the Mountain State’s recent “Right to Work” legislation, the corporate oligarchy soils the memory of our ancestors.
The number of Americans who prefer government run healthcare vs privately run is almost equal, showing a huge swing in public support. Universal healthcare would cost less, be more efficient, and cover EVERY single American. Share if you want universal non profit healthcare in America!
Regressives hate government services that work, it destroys their false narrative that “the market does a better job”. Their mission is to destroy successful programs by any means possible. First they mismanage and saddle them with debt. Then they defund. They use the argument that “we must cut service due to finances, the same finances that they just sabotaged”. Once service is cut, they make the argument that the agency or organization “isn’t doing a good job” and must be turned over to the market. Once privatized, costs go up and services go down
They have done this to:
The Postal Service
Our education system
And many other successful government agencies

No Democrats opposed the $160 billion increase in military spending????
The bill paves the way for major military and domestic program spending increases.
More pathetic news from the DNC. Maybe they should hire more fancy consultants to advise them on what to say to people without angering their corporate over lords.
“The Democratic Party is carrying more than $6 million in debt, according to year-end filings — and has just $6.5 million in the bank. Do the math, and the party is working with just over $400,000 overall. Meanwhile, the Republicans are swimming in pools of money. The Republican National Committee had raised $132 million by the end of 2017 — about twice as much as the DNC — and entered 2018 with almost $40 million to spare, with not a penny of debt.”
On Friday morning, the House narrowly approved a bipartisan two-year budget deal, 240-186, with Democratic votes needed to overcome a revolt by fiscal conservatives in the majority Republican caucus. The Senate passed the bill earlier Friday morning, 71-28, but not before the government shut down at…
