Infectiously Positive Man Implores
Americans To Pay Down The Debt By
Donating From Their Paychecks

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

When is the power of positive thinking not sufficient to solve to a pressing problem? Most of the time, actually, but particularly in the case of America’s spiraling national debt and the looming crisis that mounting debt presents. Since the end of August, America’s debt as ballooned by $400 billion – 100 billion more dollars than there are stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. For businessman Scott Soucy, stopping this runaway spending is a challenge he is ready to tackle. This jolly fellow has a plan to get America’s lawmakers to the table to address the debt,

Comments:
It´s a nice concept and he may be "infectiously positive" but I wouldn´t send one more dime to those corrupt politicians until they stop spending money so recklessly. Even if it came with "express instructions that it be applied towards the debt" it would make no difference to those crooks.
Sorry, count me out.

Let´s see, Soucy stopped paying his mortgagee, bought a lemo with a home equity loan, maxed out his credit cards and now sells T-shirts. Um, what is the difference between him and Tim Geithner? Deadbeat, heal thyself

How about this:

Ask Americans to quit taking so much welfare. Refuse all those food stamps. Don´t activate the 0bama-phone. Turn the thermostat down when welfare pays the heating bill.

After all, it´s "For the Children."

I think a line is crossed between infectiously positive and certifiably insane. It is not positive to give our government more money, and not positive to pretend otherwise. This exercise also presupposes that the problem with government debt is too little revenue, when clearly the problem is too much spending.

The problem is that it wouldn´t pay down the debt at all because the democ rats would simply spend it on their base.

How about cutting out wasteful spending and donating that amount to debt repayment instead? And other idea--cut taxes for everyone and get the economy going again. If more people are working, tax revenues will increase.

Isn´t only infectious if others get the same illness too?
Seriously, I´m supposed to donate more money to this government?
For any of you Kansans out there that ever visited Joyland Amusement Park in Wichita during your youth, do you remember the pig´s head in the center of the park that sucked up the trash through its mouth?
That´s what I think of every time I hear the government discuss taxes. That trash-sucking pig.

Infectious? How about just "sick?"

I didn´t create one dime of our enormous debt and I´ve paid taxes all my life without collecting one single day of unemployment so I take no responsibility for paying it back. The government is just like a bitchy ex-wife who maxed out your credit cards and now wants more alimony to pay her bills. If Scotty Boy wants to contribute more, nobody is going to stop him.

I actually believe that if there was a serious crackdown on spending people would donate towards the debt.

Obama just gave federal workers a raise in the face of yet another recession,probably for their support in winning Va.,at least so yeah,there´s no point in sending these reckless goons more money.

Welfare should simply be stopped 9 months from today with no newcomers hopping on the bus.I don´t want to hear this crap about it not being the kid´s fault.Build group homes to warehouse these reckless people if need be.

Obama´s getting ready to throw even more billions down the refinance rathole,in fact if you were foreclosed on,you might qualify for a big payout.It´s pure insanity.

Our national debt is around 100% of GDP.
If everyone sent in ALL of their earned income for a year, it still wouldn´t pay off the debt.

The debt is being monetized (through inflation) as you read this. Once a dollar is worth a penny, the value of the debt will only be $160,000 billion.

If you have an extra dollar in your pay check, use it to pay down your own debt. Any more, give it to your children because they will be the ones stuck with the tab.

What they are talking about is basically a math problem. I´m embarassed for the nation at their handling of this situation. I´m sure the Russians and others are snickering in their vodka.

IIRC, Mike Huckabee, when he was governor of Arkansas, replied to the lefties who criticized him for cutting taxes (because it would mean no increase in social services funding), okay, I´m opening up a special account for where you critics who want more money to go to these programs can send a check.

And again, IIRC, nobody sent any checks.

What? Because half of my check isn´t enough for those lying, theiving bloodsuckers? Are you kidding me?!

Talk about enabling "addicts". Our custodians of the public good.... Our "elected officials" are addicts - along with the taker crowd. Addicted to OPM (other people´s money).

On what planet does it make sense to give more OPM to an addict?

They (and this Polly Anna) can shove it. They already get too much from me as it is.

Why don´t they encourage people to pay off their own debts - giving themselves more financial stability in times of economic depression? I think they like having people indebted and ignorant. Much easier to control.

What a horrifying, amoral little man!

I am so glad many posters had the same reaction I did when I saw this dude on Fox and Friends this morning. First, I thought he sounded like a liberal. Second, I thought the Congress needs to make do with the taxes we already send. Third, I thought this really isn´t the problem, it it SPENDING. If we pay down the debt with this moron´s idea then the Congress will just permit themselves more dollars to spend. No deal!

Can´t disagree with any of the posts here. Oh, wait. When I was young and laid off (in the 50´s), it wasn´t the taxpayers who funded unemployment benefits. It was from a fund that came from employers! No average worker´s money, just funded by employers.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan visited an elementary school in Columbus, N.M. last year where 75 percent of the students live in Mexico but are being educated in the United States because their mothers crossed the border to seek medical help, and their birth here makes them U.S. citizens. “These are our kids and they’re trying to get a great education,” Duncan said during a visit to the school, which was part of his 2013 school bus tour. “These are children and families who are trying to live the American dream of putting everything, everything on the line to get a

Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
