Reason #1: Stop The Incompetence. Stop Mark Dayton.

Reason #1: $90 Million Political Palace
Stop The Incompetence. Stop Mark Dayton.

In 2013, Democrat Mark Dayton raised taxes by $2.1 billion, and to celebrate he went on a wasteful spending spree. Dayton increased government spending by 12% and approved an unnecessary $90 million political palace. His actions were wasteful and irresponsible.

Reason #1: $90 million political palace

Dayton’s support of this unnecessary building is the definition of government waste, and the only people looking to benefit from it are Democrat politicians.

  1. The plan signed by Gov. Mark Dayton expands the Governor’s office in the Capitol by a whopping 62%. That’s almost double! (Video)
  2. After the $90 million building is built, 23 legislators may actually have 2 offices. Remember, these are part-time legislators! (KSTP, 10/21/14)
  3. Republicans had a cost-effective solution to rent temporary office space while the Capitol was renovated. The government even set aside money for it, but instead the Democrats voted to build an expensive, unnecessary building. (Space Planning Report, 1/15/13)

Mark Dayton increased government spending, increased taxes and wasted it on an unnecessary political palace. While Minnesotans are struggling to get by, Dayton’s administration is wasting money on political perks.

Who died before they collected Social Security?

Who died before they collected Social Security?

 

THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!!!!

THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!!!
WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?

Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did, too.

It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.

If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.

Read that again.

Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?

We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a Government bank to insure you and I that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.

Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.

If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98.

If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!

If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

Another thing with me…. I have two deceased husbands who died in their 50’s, (one was 51 and the other one was 59 before one percent of their social security could be drawn. I worked all my life and am drawing 100% on my own social security. Their S.S. money will never have one cent drawn from what they paid into S.S. all their lives.

THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.

Entitlement my foot, I paid cash for my social security insurance! Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Remember Congressional benefits? — free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days.

Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?

We’re “broke” and we can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, or Homeless. They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.

Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.

A Letter from Congressman John Kline

October 6, 2009

Dear MaddMedic,

Knowing of your support for fiscal responsibility, I thought you may be interested to learn of troubling developments related to reckless government spending that continues to occur in Washington.

Recently, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released updated budget estimates that reveal staggering annual deficits for the next 10 years. The cumulative deficit – or the total amount added to the national debt – between 2010 and 2019, as a result of President Obama’s budget will be more than $9 trillion. This is an increase of $2 trillion over estimates earlier this year. What is more, this increase does not include the President’s proposed $1 trillion government takeover of health care.

To add insult to injury, the President just requested the Senate consider legislation to increase the debt limit from the current $12.1 trillion. As you may know, the House-passed budget resolution for this fiscal year, which I opposed, included an increase of the debt limit to $13 trillion.

It is obvious America has a debt problem. These alarming figures will likely lead to higher taxes that will still fall short of closing a growing debt burden our children and grandchildren will be forced to bear. I am a strong proponent of requiring the federal government to live within its means. All across America, families manage their finances in a responsible manner, and Washington should be obligated to do the same.

To get control over future deficits, Congress should seek meaningful reform of our current entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to make them more efficient and affordable and eliminate wasteful and low-priority government programs. Finally, the Administration and leaders in the congressional majority should abandon the current health care reform proposals that will result in an expensive and irresponsible government takeover of our health industry.

I remain committed to working with congressional leaders to eliminate wasteful and ineffective programs from the federal budget. I will continue to work toward responsible fiscal reform that does not rely on more taxes and more spending.

Sincerely,

JOHN KLINE
Member of Congress
