Texas businessman and American Citizen Party Presidential candidate Bob McNeil opposes the Ryan-Murray budget deal on the grounds that it increases federal spending and taxes at a time when the Federal Government is already groaning under the weight of a $17+ trillion dollar debt.
“The budget permits $63 billion in new spending, money that would be borrowed at interest which will mean that close to $100 billion would eventually be added to the deficit,” notes McNeil.
The Ryan-Murray budget also raises taxes which are deceptively called “user fees.” These so-called user fees include an increase in an airline security fee from $2.50 to $5.60 per flight which totals $11.20 for a round trip. Other “user fees” travelers should expect to pay would include a “Domestic Transportation Tax” ($17.20), a Travel Facilities Tax ($6.40) and a “U.S. International Transportation Tax ($17.20).
“The funds that would be raised by these new proposed taxes would go directly into the Treasury where they would then be bonded in order to enhance further spending as opposed to the money actually going to maintain transportation infrastructure,” explains McNeil.
McNeil continues, “At least if the money actually went to pay for services then the increases might be more tolerable, but Washington has become so hooked on spending that they just drop the workingman’s money into the Treasury which has become like a black hole that just sucks up money. The American people have a right to expect a budget that cuts unnecessary expenses and waste, and this could be done without affecting any of the services many Americans have, unfortunately, come to expect from their government.”

Bob McNeil Biography in a Letter to America:
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
- A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
- A father of two daughters.
- A grandfather of three beautiful children.
- A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
- It must be constitutional;
- It must be peaceful;
- It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians and the media use to divide us as a nation, and;
- It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan. I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved. Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future. If you don’t, someone else will.
