Javier Milei Delivers Argentina’s First Surplus in Over a Decade—and US Media Is Silent


The revelation that Argentina has done something the US government hasn’t done
in more than two decades—run a budget surplus—seems like a newsworthy event
So why the silence?

Fee.org

Argentines witnessed something amazing last week: the government’s first budget surplus in nearly a dozen years.

The Economy Ministry announced the figures Friday, and the government was $589 million in the black.

Argentina’s surplus comes on the heels of ambitious cuts in federal spending pushed by newly-elected President Javier Milei that included slashing bureaucracy, eliminating government publicity campaigns, reducing transportation subsidies, pausing all monetary transfers to local governments, and devaluing the peso.

5 Charts Show Why Congress Must Stop Deficit Spending


 

DailySignal.com

Both chambers of Congress are locked in fierce battles over spending legislation.

A “supplemental” package has found bipartisan support in the Senate after the removal of flawed border and immigration provisions. However, its $95 billion price tag—$60 billion of which would go to Ukraine—means there will be stiff resistance in the House.

Meanwhile, Congress is also working on regular spending bills (known as appropriations) that fund national defense and federal agencies. The most recent deal funds part of the federal government through March 1 and the rest through March 8.

It remains to be seen whether these bills will be honest—or loaded with gimmicks, such as phony “emergency” spending in an attempt to trick the public about what’s going on.

The spending bills aren’t happening in isolation. Decades of budget gimmicks, spending sprees, and handouts to far left institutions have put America in an unsustainable position, as these new charts show.

House Passes Bill 221-197 to Block Biden From Using EPA to Ban Gas-Powered Cars and to Mandate EVs


 

CEI.org

In a vote of 221-to-197, the House today passed the Choice in Automobile Retail Sales (CARS) Act (H.R. 4468). Introduced by Reps. Tim Walberg (R-MI) and Andrew Clyde (R-GA) and supported by the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the bill would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from finalizing its proposed vehicle emissions rule that would limit what kind of cars Americans can buy. The CARS Act would also amend the Clean Air Act to prohibit the agency from mandating the use of any specific technologies or limiting the “availability of new motor vehicles based on the type of new motor vehicle engine in such new motor vehicles.”

Following passage, Director of CEI’s Center for Energy and Environment Daren Bakst said:

“I applaud the House of Representatives for passing the CARS Act on a bipartisan basis. This commonsense measure would stop the EPA from moving forward with its tailpipe emission rule that would restrict the freedom of Americans to choose the vehicle that best fits their needs. The bill would also help block any similar efforts in the future.  Reps. Walberg and Clyde should be commended for introducing and securing passage of the bill, and I urge their counterparts in the Senate to swiftly pass the measure to ensure the EPA’s attack on consumer choice is killed once and for all.”

Video: Nurse Breaks Down Describing Struggle in Biden’s America Despite Her & Husband ‘Making Good Money’


Infowars.com

"Somebody has to do something to change this because I make good money, he makes good money, we don't live above our means but we live paycheck-to-paycheck."

A nurse and mother’s rant about her financial struggle under Joe Biden’s policies is going viral on social media.

The full-time Pennsylvania critical care nurse and mom-of-two Mackenzie Moan described how her and her husband still lived “paycheck-to-pacheck”  despite “making good money.”

“I feel like my husband and I are doing everything right,” she said as she teared up in a video posted to Tik Tok. “We both have good jobs. I’m a registered nurse, I work full time, he works full time.”

Sweden Is Right. the Economy Should be Left Open


By Mike Whitney
Unz.com

Sometimes, the best thing to do, is to do nothing at all. Take Sweden, for example, where the government decided not to shut down the economy, but to take a more thoughtful and balanced approach. Sweden has kept its primary schools, restaurants, shops and gyms open for business even though fewer people are out in public or carrying on as they normally would. At the same time, the government has kept the Swedish people well-informed so they understand the risks the virus poses to their health and the health of others. This is how the Swedes have minimized their chances of getting the infection while avoiding more extreme measures like shelter-in-place which is de facto house arrest.

What the Swedish experiment demonstrates, is that there’s a way to navigate these unprecedented public health challenges without recklessly imposing police state policies and without doing irreparable harm to the economy. And, yes, the results of this experiment are not yet known, but what we do know is that most nations cannot simply print-up trillions of dollars to counter the knock-on effects of bringing the economy to a screeching halt. These countries must dip into their reserves or take out loans from the IMF in order to recover from the lack of production and activity. That means they’re going to face years of slow growth and high unemployment to dig out from the mess their leaders created for them.

And that rule applies to the US too, even though the government has been recklessly printing money to pay the bills. The unforeseen cost to the US will come in the form of long-term unemployment triggered by millions of failed small and mid-sized businesses. That grim scenario is all but certain now. And just as the USG “disappeared” millions of workers from the unemployment rolls following the 2008 Financial Crisis– forcing them to find low-paying, part-time, no-benefits work in the “gig” economy– so too, millions of more working people will fall through the cracks and wind up homeless, jobless and destitute following this crisis. One $1,200 check from Uncle Sam and a few weeks of unemployment compensation is not going to not be enough to prevent the fundamental restructuring of the US labor force that will be impossible to avoid if the economy isn’t restarted pronto.
