Richard Kind Has Solved US National Debt Crisis

Posted: April 30th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Richard Kind Has Solved US National Debt CrisisSubmit Comment
Celebrities love to be asked about politics, despite the fact that most have no clue what they're talking about. Right before the White House Correspondents Dinner Party on Friday, THR approached Richard Kind to find out the type of laws he would pass if he were to become President.

"I'm a big fan of education; I think more money should be poured into education," he said. "I think the environment is a mess and is spiraling downward." Education, check. Environment, check. So far, he hit all the major talking points. But Kind is not done. He has one more thing to say and it's disturbing.

"I think our tax situation, you know we are in debt a lot," he said. "I tell you, you cut off one billionaire and he might be able to cover everything. If that billionaire were to die and leave that money to the government, all our problems may be solved."

It's not clear if he's talking about killing billionaires and taking their money, but before he starts running for President with this type of agenda, someone should point out that the debt is over $15 trillion and is not showing any signs of slowing down. And if you were to "cut off" not just one billionaire, but all of them, and take all their money, you would not pay off even five percent of that debt. Of course, what you would have, is an additional hundreds of thousands of people out of work.

...thanks for the in depth analysis of an offhand quote from Richard Kind. Did he offend one of the billionaires working at WP or something?

Yes more money should be poured into education

America has poured more money into education than any other nation and we arent even ranked in the top 25

Well...theoretically if a billionaire were to donate all of his money after he died, it would help the economy.

Idiotic. We're in the hole TRILLIONS of dollars. TRILLIONS, and that doesn't include the red ink down the road in ten years. And we've poured BILLIONS into education for forty years and the only thing to show for it is declining test scores.

This guy needs to STFU.

No it wouldn't because the f*cking government would just spend it on condoms to Africa.

Yeah, nice interview...what did you expect?!

The guy is an actor, he acts...asking him a questions even people that are politicians wouldn't be able to answer...gimme him a break.

But yeah, he might have given an idiotic answer, but then again, THR are *ssholes for printing this interview.

Sensationalism c*nts...

This is news Alex? This guy is the most annoying actor in Hwood and you give him more coverage by publicizing his idiotic politics? Like we needed to be told he was douchebag. He's the guy everyone calls when they need an annoying douchebag in their film and John Leguizamo isn't available.

Stop fishing for a political fight Alex :)

People seem to forget that Private Wealth isn't the only form on taxable income, and that the United States has the highest GDP in the world at 15 trillion annually. Not getting to appropriate chunk of that in Tax Revenue hurts the deficit (and builds to the debt level we have now)

So yes, raising tax rates/closing loopholes on higher income brackets and corporations would do a significant amount to eliminate the deficit (which would then chip away at 15 Trillion of debt) The 15 trillion wasn't created over night, it took decades of tax breaks, deregulation, and wars paid with borrowed money in order to get there so obviously it cannot be erased over night (or maybe ever). Other steps would have to be taken, for example, cutting the US Defense budget at least in half, a savings of 400-500 Billion annually (depending on what the real budget is). Removing oil subsidies, rebuilding the healthcare system (bargaining, less waste, etc), and dismantling the narco-police state that sinks billions every year into controlling substances that could be taxed.

(Before anyone criticizes government healthcare, don't let the facts get in the way. Like, you know, the way that the US spends twice as much per capita as anyone else and gets half the results. Private insurance has something like 15% more waste than governmentally administered programs in other countries.)

"No it wouldn't because the f*cking government would just spend it on condoms to Africa."

The amount of money that America spends on non-military foreign aid is a common misconception, and actually a minute amount of the budget. Most "condom money" comes from NGOs and charities.

Oh and obviously, the amount spent on education is declining, and our once top university system is being surpassed globally. Even the amount we spent at our peak is dwarfed by areas like National Security etc.

Oh, to clarify that 15% waste I mentioned is 15% more of the money of the system sunk into administrative costs (ie not paying for actual medical care) On the contrary much of that 15% is spent finding ways to get out of paying for medical care (pre-exisiting conditions, etc).

"it took decades of tax breaks, deregulation, and wars paid"

LOL, no it took decades of government spending (SS. Medicare) to get there. We could have funded a hundred Iraq wars if we hadn't shelled out TRILLIONS for sh*t to serve the left-wing entitlement/nanny state, but once again you shoot solely from your left hip, First Rule.

"The amount of money that America spends on non-military foreign aid is a common misconception, and actually a minute amount of the budget. Most "condom money" comes from NGOs and charities."

Actually, I was referring to the 15 billion GWB sent to Africa, part of which was intended to fight the rampant screwing and AIDS going on over there.

SMH.

SOCIAL SECURITY DOES NOT ADD TO THE DEFICIT!

Social Security cannot be figured in because everyone pays into via a separate system, therefore it does not contribute to the deficit. SS is not an entitlement, it a a retirement fund you get back when (and no its not running out anytime soon)

Seeing that Iraq will probably end up costing more than 3 Trillion Dollars (with veteran benefits) it his not feasible to fight that kind of war even once. A cost that btw, is not included in the defense budget. The war was costing nearly a Billion dollars a day, enough to buy your condoms in two weeks time.

Also 15 Billion *one time* to Africa for aids is half a percent of the federal budget for one year. GE evaded more than that in Taxes just last year.

You would think someone who spends every waking second of every day spewing nonsense on Worstpreviews would understand the value of welfare, unless you are just independently wealthy, and this fact has allowed you to pursue your dream of spending all day commenting on internet Movie news.
