So in 2016 the US government in RP brought in $2,000,000,000,000. They spent $2,500,000,000,000. So thats a spending deficit of $500 billion.

CALCULATION= -$500 billion

Carbon tax is set at $80 per ton, the carbon annually produced by the US is roughly 5,000 million metric tons. That means an income of $400 billion from the carbon tax.

CALCULATION= -$100 billion

2 executive funds are currently active, to fight ISIS and to build infrastructure. Together costing $500 billion.

CALCULATION= -$600 billion

Deficit Reduction is 10% of expenditure, which puts it at $170 billion.

CALCULATION= -$770 billion

The RLSA gives the Payroll tax to the states, which is revenue of $875 billion a year the federal gov loses.

CALCULATION= -$1.645 trillion

Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid cost $1.938 trillion a year which the federal government no longer has to pay for. So we take that out of the deficit.

CALCULATION= $500 billion

All told their is a budget surplus of $293 billion without cutting a single thing


Am i missing anything?


That’s a big stack of many many moneys..... I’m guessing there’ll be a push for tax cuts, hopefully they’re not budget-busters.

I think it's $80 per imperial ton, but other than that that's a lot of money.

Still about, just been a bit busy with work these past few days. Mulling over a few ideas for a Dem senator.

Also with the Iowa conservative event, could I have Ransom give a short speech there?
