Steve Forbes: Government is concerned about its own well-being





Comments
  1. he nails it in the first minute and nothing she said after that even came close to explaining away or combating his original fact based points she just comes off as the ignorant child she must be

  2. Another socialist with serious mental problems. If you look at the way she looked when she told her to wait for just a second and then it came out at the end when she angrily mentioned president Trump.

  3. Why is she talking about the price, when he’s talking about the government not being efficient spending other people’s money in the first place?

  4. Like Sharia, Socialism is Illegal, Unlawful, & Unconstitutional, and We the People will not sit idly by, while the mentally insane ruin all hope for our children and grandchildren to live in Freedom. #Trump2020 🥁🇺🇸🥁🔔🥁

  5. Wow, can Democrats be any dumber? And the bad thing is it's not just a few of them that say these things, it's all of them and they are completely wrong.

  6. Gov makes sure that they get double digits raises every yr. Obamacare = free babies = more freebies for 18+ yrs and you do not have to work. Health Ins, drugs etc was affordable before Obama made it mandatory.

  7. It would be so much fairer if we just tax the rich. Then we can expand the taxation to the Middle class and after that take away benefits from the poor.

  8. A democratic socialist seriously how dumb can u get be better off asking a 4 year old with development issues for better advice on economics 😂😂😂

  9. You can tax the richest at 100% and will never scratch the surface to pay for their hair brain schemes.

  10. We do not live in a free market because the behaviors of businesses operating in an unethical manner demanded the supply of governmental regulations. I wonder if Forbes is propagating misinformation on purpose?

  11. Ahhh the typical Democrat ploy, when someone is proving you wrong, jump in, tell them they're wrong and then talk very very fast while saying absolutely nothing, then try to run out the clock. Idiot.

  12. El socialismo no sirve es mentira se parece al comunismo como decia mi abuelo un vivo explota al pueblo y se hace rico no hay nada mejor que la democracia el que no lo entienda es un animal retrogrado anticuado o un falso politico ladron que quiere mentirle al pueblo en norteamerica el unico hombre capaz de manejar el pais es el sr presidente donald trump es muy inteligente y conoce mucho de economia yo le tengo muchisima fe y lo admiro mucho no hay discurso que no lo escuche con donald se aprende muchisimo que dios lo bendiga para ser reelegido 2020la unica opcion patriota y honesta para un muy buen futuro desde mendoza argentina su admirador gabriel

  13. Inefficiencies? 1.3 trillion in government waste goes way beyond inefficiency. And her solution to this problem is for government to operate as if it has no bottom line, when it most certainly does have one. Is she crazy? There is nothing more wasteful with money than government except perhaps a drug addict and government would be running a close second. For example why does every member of Congress need an extensive staff on payroll?

  14. Her comment about going bankrupt from a broken arm is patently ridiculous and frankly insulting. It assumes we are children incapable of surviving anything. That attitude is not what built this country.

  15. Can you imagine the reason states are going bankrupt especially when run by democrats???? The nonAmericans, specifically the Muslims & illegals, are getting $1600.00 in housing subsidies, $1600.00 in Social Security checks, food stamps & Medicaid health benefits, no copayments involved????? While we retirees who worked & paid for our social security checks, cannot get food stamps when we live in our own homes, we get our Medicare deducted from our social security checks every month, we have to get supplemental health insurance, & we have to pay property taxes at the same rate as others who have not retired. If we get catastrophic health problems like cancer, we are wiped out & on the way to near bankruptcy & lose the homes we've been paying for all those years. Where is the government that is supposed to protect its citizens??????? Retirement age is not the golden years of our lives. It's turning out to be the nightmares of our lives!!!! God help us all.

  16. Steve's totally right about there not being any consequences in government — not only for overspending, but for everything else. I've worked in government, and the people all around me were incompetent, egotistical, always making mistakes and messing everything up, and there were never any consequences. They just kept their positions and over-inflated union salaries, they can't be fired, so they continue to mess things up without consequences.

  17. What more can you expect from a socialist, the government is screwed up and inefficient, her solution is more taxes and a bigger government. True insanity.

  18. Democrats country is in serious financial debt so we are going to spend another 100 trillion $$ ?

    Basically open the door for foreign Invaders.

  19. 2:30 you see this massive waste bevause corporate lobbting has corrupted everu facid of Government.

    Half the Government worked for the people they are supposed to watchdog!

    OF COURSE Its looking out for itself, the influence Lobbying has is eroding everyones honestu and good nature.

    The good guy doesn't win anymore.

    Just the richest does.

    And rich guys don't have to be good. Lol.

  20. communism comes in all colors……..wake the fk up folks….socialism is for total dependence ,on the commie party!!//dems…,,,and the sure fear,,dont vote against them,, or lose it…vote for the commie party…..its not about being independent anymore…declared the communist government,,,its about depending on us..while we play robin hood, with taxes,and use the middle class as an excuse to raise them to,,because the poor become grater in number,,and we caint take any more from them!to fill in the freebie and soup pot..if it wasn't seen coming then they wouldn't know its already that way..and has been getting progressively worse..while trillions have just disappeared…?

  21. The airhead with the same disproven talking points, do you think any of those "tax the 1%ers" ever had an original thought? And she tries to tell Forbes about finance. ah hahaha! ah hahaha!

  22. Love how they just ignore the silly liberal at the end like a little kid. Very similar. Very naive. Let the adults talk.

  23. The Left: The government keeps people down, oppesses people, is ridiculously inefficient, and is always wanting to take our money!

    The Right: We agr-

    The Left: Let's raise taxes on the rich, give the government total control of healthcare, make sure the government has all the weapons, and enact socialism!

    The Right: ……….dammit.

  24. One person actually create jobs. The other is an activist. That has their hands in other peoples pockets. You pick which one is the Job, Wealth Creator.

  25. There are too many people that are living off the public dole.
    If people worked for a living rather than expecting everything to be provided this would be a better world.
    Taxing the rich is an extension of the idea, I don't want to have to work for a living….

  26. Wow this girl is delusional. Free market and capitalism has raised billions of people out of poverty and has created better health and medical for the whole world. Socialism and government controlled projects have only ever destroyed nations and starved people. Their medical systems have no innovation and they depend on non socialist systems to get new and better medical practices.

  27. Capitalism shouldn't be about allowing unfettered access to our markets that we don't enjoy in theirs. Fair trade, not free trade.

  28. Man this is the stuff we shall talk of being spent in actuality increased spending means Non- neglected state THIS IS A KID TALKING TO HISTORY

  29. WRONG. DEMOCRATS, RHINOS, CONCERNED FOR THEMSELVES! POTUS TRUMP, DEPLORABLES, CONCERNED FOR FREEDOM, DEMOCRACY, CONSTITUTION, SECURITY, JUSTICE. CONCERNED MUSLIM EXTREMISTS IN OUR GOV'T, COMMUNISTS, ILLEGAL ALIENS; ROBBING, KILLING, TAUNTING, LAUGHING; ANARCHISTS, TRAITORS, NOT IN PRISON, DEPORTED, KILLED. MONEY COMES & GOES, STOCK EBBS & FLOWS, ECONOMY IS GREAT. MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT LIKE SURVIVAL!

  30. What does the waste have to do with obamacare? Are you kidding? A shutdown, military at the border, tax cuts for the rich and corporates. And socialized medical has NOT crushed anything in europe. You can walk into any polish dentist office and get service without going broke.

  31. Forbes nailed it in the first minute. Ask Italy and Greece what happened when they taxed their rich. They moved!!

  32. Every Empire goes through phases. We either slowly crumble or smarten up and get rid of the poison. 👌

  33. So with the Republicans in charge we have the most bloated gov ever, seems about right and historically consistent with their policies.

  34. I have no doubt we are way over budget considering Congress hasn't done nothing we're spending all this millions and trillions of dollars on illegal aliens and their health and their border and they shouldn't even be here they're even getting welfare more than I get for me and my little girl that's pathetic and it sucks let's solve the problem instead of being the problem we're talking about you Congress!

  35. Govt is always self-preserving. A bureaucrat's #1 job is to keep their job. A civil servant thinks differently. God bless our civil servants and help the excess bureaucrats go get a real job.

  36. Illegal immigration & Government spending need to be brought under control. Two biggest. internal challenges our country is facing now.

  37. This is the problem with ANYONE running their mouths about policies who have NEVER PRODUCED ANYTHING FOR PROFIT AND are only experienced in USING other peoples products and become ACTIVISTS! THEY ARE DUMB, DUMB, DUMB! They know nothing about the true nuances of economics and how things REALLY WORK in peoples behavior. NEVER HAVE HER WORTHLESS BUTT ON AGAIN. SHE is unqualified to even DISCUSS what this man has DONE!!1

  38. THIS IS PATHETIC how much this female does not know about the real world! She is utterly clueless and dont even know it. Experience matters GREATLY. Run a business Miss Nobody and then come back to the table in 10 years…

  39. Another inherited filthy rich half man with opinion. This guy thought he would make great leader for the USA.
    The whims of the super wealthy.

  40. I'm only into this video 27 seconds, and already, you are not telling truths. In 2015 alone, the US Army audit showed that it spent 6.5 TRILLION dollars more than allocated. (The national debt at that time was $15T.) In Fiscal Years 1999 – 2015, the Dept. of Defense has already admitted to spending 21 TRILLION dollars more than allocated. In neither instance could anyone explain where the money went. Come on — google it before you pretend to report it.

    And as for Mr. Forbes' claims that capitalism inspired innovation, he has been PROVEN wrong in studies around the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfEdFm9UP28 and that's where I couldn't take the lies any longer.

  41. Other peoples money? Lets have a flat tax with zero ways for the uber rich to squirm out and pay less. It would make the wealthy cheaters weep and put the tax lawyer schemers out of business.

  42. The economy has been growing because of a debt scheme. Trump is increasing spending and deficits beyond expansion in output. Gee I wonder how this will end? Try living on credit cards only without ever paying the bill. Like the "King of Debt" Trump.

  43. Stop spending money till you get under control. Your spending is out of control. Your stealing our children's futcher. Checks and balances people. Need accounting classes in school

  44. In the interest of justice and humanity, Nomiki Konst should be given a free functioning brain at taxpayer expense.

  45. Typical young liberal. I’ve figured out why these young folks are like this. They learned this in college and watched their professors pontificate and speak this over and over. This philosophy on how a their socialist paradise would function. Which would be great but the corrupt people will not let it be what it is suppose to be in theory. She’s probably never had a job of any serious responsibility or oversight that requires accountability.
    The reason for her views are because she doesn’t understand how these philosophical ideals actually function (not function) in the real world today. I’d love to take her to the VA and show her how awful the VA is. I’d also like to see her try to find a doctor who takes Medicare/Medicade anymore. Why don’t they take it? Because the govt doesn’t pay the doctor or pays almost a year later.
    These are just two examples. What she doesn’t understand is these are the programs that should work in her system but they don’t. She would just keep saying it’s because the free market takes away their money, businesses cannot pay their share etc etc. it never stops. Because this is how they were taught in the school system. Government program.

    The only thing they don’t get is it’s the people in government who are the problem. I spent 30 years working for the government. It’s the people. There are good people but they quickly get brainwashed to creat red tape and have their own agendas.
    The solutions are 1. REMOVE the people from government and 2. REMOVE the left from our education system. 3. Remove any kind of big business (interest or otherwise) from government. 4. Make govt employees accountable on a profit type basis by requiring every govt agency to make a profit.

  46. Yea its clear this Nomiki Konst has zero clue about ecconomics. This idea that the top one percent will pay for everything is absurd! Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don't need it and hell where they already have it!

  47. The government is concerned? What the hell does that mean? Democrats are concerned? Are they concerned Nasty Nancy won't be able to fly on Air force One with her family with caviar , wine and thousand dollar meals? All at the expense of the American citizens. This is where the waste is in America. These corrupt greedy people have no conscious . No moral fiber. No compassion, or inner meter for right or wrong! It's all about power and money.

  48. The idea that wasteful government spending isn't under control because the government isn't taxing the wealthy enough and doesn't spend enough money to be efficient is one of the MOST ABSURD IDEAS I'VE EVER HEARD! Is this REALLY what socialist think? Really??? 🙄
