Congress loves to brag that it is keeping taxes low by borrowing 46 percent of the money it spends to operate the U.S. government and passing the bill on to our children.

If you had to pay the FULL cost of operating Congress’s pork barrel spending your taxes would increase by 86 percent.

Can you imagine your taxes almost doubling to pay for the full cost of the lousy government we get?

Of course it’s just smoke and mirrors when Congress claims that our children will pay for their pork barrel spending.

The bottom line is that Congress is running the printing presses at full speed to pay for their pork and we, not our children are paying for it thru a real, but indirect tax called inflation.
