house Bill H.R. 1871

Removing Inflation Adjustments from the Federal Budget

Argument in favor

Allows Congress to look more critically at requests for increased funding by removing assumption that spending will increase in relation to inflation.

Argument opposed

Essentially ignores the fact that inflation exists. Erodes purchasing power of discretionary spending programs.

    We need to look carefully at our expenses. The USA and its agencies should never assume that they will have more money just because they keep working to raise the inflation rate. And we need to start to slowly deflate our currency, with the possibility of switching back to a gold and silver standard of money.

    Increases in federal spending should not be related to automatic increases just because we expect inflation. The budget should just be looked at each year to determine what is needed.
