WATCH: House Speaker Reveals Plan To Thwart Government Shutdown


The government is headed toward a shutdown again—this is what happens when one spends like money grows on trees or can be printed endlessly.

As far as solutions go, there is only one solution to our continued economic and financial woes: government spending must decrease by 90% or more. This means drastically reducing the size and scope of government.

This is not an opinion, it is not up for debate, that’s it, that’s the only solution—less government spending.

Of course, the bureaucrats in DC don’t want to do that nor do they ever pose sanity as the solution for rampant financial insanity.

Speaker Mike Johnson recently unveiled a plan to thwart a government shutdown. I could go into the details of the plan but I won’t. All you need to know is that the proposed plan does not cut government spending.

In fact, it will add $2 trillion to the debt by early Spring of 2024—a reminder that taking the country back won’t occur through voting, ousting House Speakers, or achieving majorities within the federal government. Here’s more on the story:

The Epoch Times dissected the proposed plan:

Under Mr. Johnson’s plan, funding for some spending bills (veterans programs and bills dealing with transportation, housing, agriculture, and energy) would be extended until Jan. 19.

Funding for others (including defense, the State Department, and Homeland Security) would be extended until Feb. 2.

Grand Old Patriots explained: “As the Government shutdown looms again, Speaker Mike Johnson unveiled a Republican stopgap measure that will continue our out of control spending. This plan is expected to add $2 trillion in debt by March, the fastest addition in history.”

Politico reports:

Johnson has told members he plans to bring the plan up for a floor vote on Tuesday, but its chances already seem bleak.

The speaker said on the call Saturday that he expected some Republicans to vote against it and that they would need some Democratic backing.

Privately, House Democrats said Saturday that they still don’t favor Johnson’s two-date approach — in part because it may not avoid a 1 percent cut that could kick in early next year under the terms of a debt deal reached over the summer.
