The Obama Budget FY2010

Posted by Max Barron on May 11, 2009

Obama as FDR

Ladies and gents, the big O dropped his $3.6 trillion – with a T – bomb of a “budget” for 2010.  Frankly, I don’t know how anyone can really use the term budget with regards to the federal government at all.  There doesn’t seem to be any budgeting involved… Given that $2.3 trillion of that money is tied down by the entitlements our generous benefactors on Capital Hill have seen fit to bestow upon the masses – unconstitutionally of course.  That won’t stop Super O, though.  He is, after all, the anointed one.  So, what’s the One got in store for us in 2010?

The budget can be summarized with one word.  Expansion.  Most of this expansion will come in the form of regulators.  Of course, there is always the obligatory expansion of entitlements – gotta have that next generation of guaranteed Democrat votes.

Here’s the essential breakdown:

  • OSHA is looking to gain an addition %15 in funding for inspectors and enforcers.
  • IRS is getting an additional $400 million this year for more enforcers. 
  • FDA gets an additional $300 million for more field inspectors.
  • Labor Department gets an additional $400 million ($13.3 billion total) in discretionary spending cash.
  • Establishing a $1 billion trust fund for low income housing development and rehabilitation.
  • $250 million transfer of wealth to turn poor neighborhoods into “mixed income” neighborhoods.
  • $1 billion to create a new bureaucracy that will oversee the retirement savings direct deposit program.

Basically we are set to see an enormous amount of growth in public sector jobs and government reach.  Obama is set to spend more than $3.35 billion in additional federal growth.  This on top of 2009’s omnibus spending which sent an additional $513 million to OSHA alone.

But wait!  There’s more!  The Redistributor-in-Chief has decided to launch a new war on childhood hunger.  A war he says that he wants to win by 2015.  The problem here is, it won’t work.  The tax payers will have billions and eventually trillions of dollars siphoned off into this program only to see an increase or no change at all in childhood hunger.  Much like the “War on Poverty” that has been an abysmal failure… except for the success in placing millions on the federal dole and creating multiple generations of Democrat voters.  Welcome to part V of the Democrat Voter Insurance program.

With any Democrat budget comes both massive new spending and a few little cuts.  2010’s cuts while minuscule in comparison to the budget will have some far reaching impacts.  Big O, the little man’s friend, seeks to cut out payments for farmers whose sales are beyond a $500,00 threshold.  Even with the demand for more agricultural production, Obama seeks to punish those that actually DO produce, and could feasibly produce more to meet growing demand.  However, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, Max Baucus, has already stated that this particular economic lashing will be a no-go.  But don’t expect to see any such quashing of the $900 million DoD contractor services cuts.  Though, the statists will certainly support the mission to create 33,600 new civilian DoD jobs – which will naturally come at the cost of contractor jobs.

The budget also calls for removing the $400 million State Criminal Alien Assistance program – which helps relieve the monetary burden of states jailing criminals here illegally.  Obama seems to think that the money is best used elsewhere and states that he is hiring more border partol agents.   Obama also states that he will work to deport illegals that commit crimes more quickly.  If that is the case, then shouldn’t ALL of them be deported immediately, since coming here illegally IS a crime? 

As expected nothing in the budget speaks to how we will pay for it all… There simply isn’t enough revenue to cover it.  Tax payers will either see hefty increases or China will get another visit from Hillary, and my and future generations will be paying the interest for the remainder of our lives.  But don’t worry, fellow Americans, we’ll all have government jobs and live in a worker’s utopia, am I right?

    Obama’s budget is designed to fail. He knows what he’s doing.

  2. The Malleable Masses…

    Obama’s budget plan will work. It is because we are not as smart as the ‘Supreme Leader’ that we don’t understand the plan. I will try to make some since of this for you, best I can, as I’m still trying to get a grasp of i…
