Obama The Spender in Chief, We Pay the Bill
Last week Obama once again warned us about delaying yet another decision, the budget America has not seen: “There’s no point in putting it off. We’ve got to get this done. And if by the end of this week, we have not seen substantial progress, then I think members of Congress need to understand we are going to start having to cancel things and stay here until we get it done.” He continued on about his complete dedication, involvement with Afghanistan, bin Laden, and the Greek crisis.
No different than his ‘dedication’ to anything else since walking into the Oval Office, before week’s end he was in the air on his way to another vacation. That Friday afternoon a story was tucked away in the bowels of the news media stating that jobs created/saved by his stimulus came at a taxpayer cost of $278,000 each.
The following Obama quotes came from the second presidential debate with McCain:
1- When George Bush came into office, our national debt was around $5 trillion. It’s now over $10 trillion. We’ve almost doubled it.*
2- Step one was a rescue package that means making sure taxpayers get their money back. The middle-class need a rescue package. That means tax cuts for the middle-class. It means help for homeowners. It means we are helping state governments set up projects that keep people in their jobs. We’ve got to fix our health care system, we’ve got to fix our energy system.
3- Right now, the credit markets are frozen up and what that means is that small businesses can’t get loans. If they can’t get a loan…
*When Bush took office the debt was almost $6 Trillion
The Tea Party was a great influence on the GOP which, did not throw money away like the liberals, overspent. The Tea Party, a wide variety of people, not only focused on smaller government, they insisted on less spending. How long has the compromising been occurring and why is it such a mystery that America is looking over the edge of the cliff today?
Obama not only lied on the Bush debt numbers, he lied on everything that followed. Promises followed compromises, and like Lucy, every time he put them out for the deal, he pulled them away after it was done. How long ago did we give him unemployment extensions to maintain the Bush tax cuts? Now he wants to pull them away?
The states that have job wanted signs in the windows of businesses cannot find takers, look at N Dakota. Employment extensions were not provided to assist anyone, how is that program working in Europe? They’re trying to take the government benefits away from Greece and France. If you want to argue Obama is a victim of circumstance cut and paste it somewhere else, if it was not his goal he would address it.
There never was a bipartisan solution, never will be, any GOP who compromises is kicking at dead air and they realize it. The voters must do the same. No more mini solutions, no more budget extensions, no more pretend, we no longer have a problem, we must address our cancer. How does one evaluate staging without a prognosis? The damn prognosis is being ignored, continue doing what you are doing because the regime says everything is OK.
The country is suing Obama. Obama is suing the states. He has ignored the decisions of judges and bypassed the Constitution. Now he threatens to bypass Congress and create his own budgeting. It all began with his bipartisan solutions.
