Ron Paul: Every indication Congress will spend until the system collapsesSubmitted by DeMolay on Tue, 10/09/2012 - 16:34
On Oct. 9, Congressman Ron Paul spoke out regarding the issue of America's dependency upon the government, primarily in lieu of Mitt Romney's recent comments regarding the 47% of Americans who now receive some form of government benefit. In his beliefs, Congressman Paul sees the government, and in particular Congress, unwilling to address this growing dependency, and in fact, is giving every indication that they intend to spend and create debt until the entire system collapses.
Some argue that Social Security and Medicare benefits are a right because people pay into these programs their whole lives, or that we need a government safety net in place for people who fall on hard times. However, this all becomes a moot point when the funds people depend on become worthless due to government default or rampant inflation.
