When you include unfunded liabilities such as Social Security and Medicare, that actual US debt stands at $123.11 trillion, according to the Financial State of the Union 2021 published by Truth in Accounting. In order to pay off all of Uncle Sam’s liabilities, every taxpayer in the US would have to write a check for $796,000. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have it. The federal government has $5.95 trillion in assets and $129.06 trillion in liabilities. If it were a private company, the US government would be bankrupt. Here’s a breakdown of Uncle Sam’s liabilities in broad categories. #nationaldebt #libertarian #constitution #10thAmendment #economy https://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/04/23/the-national-debt-is-worse-than-advertised/

A bill introduced in the Massachusetts Senate would reform the state’s asset forfeiture laws to require a criminal conviction in most cases, and also remove the financial incentive for state and local police to participate in the federal “equitable sharing” program. Sen. Cynthia Creem (D) and Rep. Elizabeth Maila (D) introduced Senate Bill 965 (S965) on March 29. Under the proposed law, prosecutors would not be able to move forward with asset forfeiture proceedings without first obtaining a criminal conviction in most cases. S965 would also address the “policing for profit” incentive built into the forfeiture process by requiring all forfeiture proceeds to be paid into the general fund. As it stands, Massachusetts law enforcement agencies can keep up to 100 percent of forfeiture funds. Passage of the bill would also remove the financial incentive for police to participate in a federal program that allows state and local police to get around more strict state asset forfeiture laws. This is particularly important in light of a policy directive issued in July 2017 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the Department of Justice (DOJ) that remains in effect today. The Institute for Justice calls Massachusetts’ asset forfeiture laws “the worst in the country.” As it stands, police can take an individual’s property without even charging them with a crime. #assetforfeiture #libertarian #10thAmendment #constitution #policestate https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/04/massachusetts-bill-would-big-step-toward-ending-civil-asset-forfeiture/
