The recent passage of a staggering $1.06 billion budget is nothing short of bewildering, especially considering that the numbers don’t add up, nor does it pass the most basic scrutiny.
As Milton Friedman wisely said, “Nobody spends somebody else’s money as carefully as he spends his own. Nobody uses somebody else’s resources as carefully as he uses his own. So if you want efficiency and effectiveness, if you want knowledge to be properly utilized, you have to do it through the means of private property.”
It’s both amusing and tragic how Comrade Hill-Insky praised this budget presentation, claiming it’s the best she’s seen in two years. I’ve been in numerous investment and board meetings on financials for companies and charities, and this kind of presentation would have any sensible businessperson running for the exit for fear of prosecution.
The entire budget process was overseen by Eric Brown-Stain, whose business credentials appear scarce and lackluster. In fact, I can’t find a single solvent business he’s ever started. With Comrade Hill-Insky, Mariluz “sometimes lives in her district too” Garcia, and Android Andriola in charge of overseeing and approving the massive budget, what in the world makes them qualified to pass a 1 billion dollars budget that affects us all? Spoiler alert, nothing!
Commissioner Mike Clark, a man with exceptional business acumen and auditing skills, voted against the budget. Commissioner Herman, also a successful business owner, would have voted no if not for being away attending to constituents’ needs. If only Android Andriola hadn’t been swayed by Marxist ideologies, she might have aligned with Clark and prevented this fiscal catastrophe. As we know, though, commies do what commies do, even if they have an “R” in front of their name.
Margaret Thatcher once said, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
The budget is riddled with red flags, focusing on the homeless, more homeless, and more homeless, they sprinkled in some equity, and election matters, too, of course, to maintain power. With less than 1,000 homeless individuals, the budget allocates an exorbitant amount per person. From just what I can see (in addition to below), it appears to be over $200,000 per so-called homeless person!
Where in the world is all this money really going?
Why do all these politicians go from broke to well-off when they are only supposed to be making $100,000 a year? But I digress.
The county’s annual debt service exceeds $25 million, as well! I would have that to zero on day one!
As if that weren’t enough, the county’s ongoing expenses are projected to outpace revenue due to increased personnel costs, expanded services, and higher goods/services costs! You know what we call that in business? Out of business!
This begs the question: where has the influx of hundreds of millions in “free money” gone?
Additionally, stop and ponder, our county has only 21% of Las Vegas’ population, yet our budget constitutes 54% of theirs.
A comprehensive line-by-line audit of the budget is urgently needed. Individuals like Brown-Stain are appointed to execute the whims of those in power, then commies like Hill, Garcia, and Android do their bidding, and we the taxpayers are left to shoulder the burden.
I saw it, you saw it, Hill, Garcia, and Andriola’s actions speak louder than words, as no detail, no audit, no problem, they passed it!
Just to be clear, I’m all about spending money when and where it’s needed, but we have to be responsible and moral, especially when it comes to other people’s money. We need to see where all this is really going. I’m sorry, but what they are showing simply doesn’t make sense. There’s no way any sane, moral person with an IQ over 60 could have passed this crap.
Brown, Garcia, Hill, and Andriola are not working for us folks. Commissioner Clark and Herman are going to bat for us daily. Let’s do the same for them.
It’s time to join their cause and spread the word – enough is enough. Share this post with all you know in Washoe.
Here’s the budget presentation in all its “glory”:
