Aren’t politicians nasty?
I said this before and I will say it again, “A good politician is a politician willing to risk their job to stand up for the people who elected them”
This fiscal cliff non sense is a lose lose situation for everyone even if the deal is passed. I say we hold it to the people we elected to actually do their jobs so we can see REAL change in government. Republicans and Democrats alike. WE NEED TRUE CONSERVATIVES who have morals and sanctity. We need the conservatives to act like conservatives and to stand up for everyone, not just their pockets.
I can not wait till I run for public office…
How many politicians does it take to screw up an economy? One. No, two. Wait, let me think about this some more — how about 535, as in 435 House member plus 100 Senators.Hold on, I forgot to include President Obama. Can you give me a couple more weeks to answer?
What is happening in Washington right now is a joke — and a badly constructed one at that. Obama proved that yesterday afternoon by going in front of reporters at a White House press conference — all smiley and flip — despite the fact that serious negotiations were supposed to be going about the financial fate of our country.
The agreement, as it was being reported as I’m writing, won’t address any cuts in expenditures, but it will increase taxes on enough people — those married folks with incomes supposedly more than $450,000 a year, for instance — to allow our leaders to say they did something without really doing anything.Just back from their ill-deserved Christmas break, our leaders spent yesterday trying to cobble together a last minute, half-assed compromise that’ll keep full-blown tax increases and spending cuts from going into immediate effect. Oops. It turns out as of last night that they really did do nothing. The hard work will be left to the new Congress — which also will eventually decide to do nothing about our financial problems.
But Washington will be forced to increase the nation’s debt limit in the very near future. And the finger-pointing that will go with that discussion will cause more problems.
Meanwhile, our nation’s $16 trillion-plus debt level will continue to rise, and tax receipts paid to the government will probably decline thanks to the fear instilled in consumers and businesses by the so-called “fiscal cliff” and debt-limit negotiations.
This year’s federal deficit probably won’t be improved one nickel. Nice work, guys!
Three things will get Washington’s attention, and I hope all of them don’t happen at the same time.
Ironically, tonight Obama will arrive at Connecticut memorial service, guarded heavily by high power firearms to protect his life. In the next few weeks people who voted for this man will propose laws that make it harder for you to defend your own life. This is the signature Liberalism. Those in power get all the power as the citizens become weaker.
Look, hating taxes is as American as it gets. (Boston Tea Party, anyone?) Furthermore, we know that letting people keep more of their hard earn money they earn yields bigger federal revenue in the end. John F Kennedy and Ronald Reagan proved that. But big-government, tax-and-spend progressives don’t believe that. They believe increasing taxes on citizens, particularly those who earn the most, is a valor act of patriotism. That’s fine. Then let them self-impose higher tax rates on themselves. After all, aren’t liberals the ones always talking about the importance of “sacrificing for the good of the community” and the importance of “spreading the wealth around”? Then let them.
But they don’t and they won’t. Why? Because their all hypocrites.
President Barack Obama argued Tuesday the “most important thing” to be done for national security is for Republicans to cave on tax hikes and stop obstructing the president’s agenda.”
That means the debt has increased nearly $6,000,000,000,000 during Obama’s presidency.
On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner suggested that Congress give President Obama the unilateral authority to lift the limit on the national debt.
The Census Bureau estimated in September that there were 114,916,000 households in the United States. That means that the $5,696,206,400,691.90 the Obama administration has borrowed in the name of U.S. taxpayers now equals about $49,568 per household.
and 50.6% of people voted for this.
In his first press conference since being elected to a second term, Pres. Barack Obama told the White House press corps on Wednesday that he will begin the process in Congress for a mass amnesty bill very soon after his inauguration. Pres. Obama said the bill would offer amnesty to the 11 million illegal aliens living in the United States, requiring them to pay fines and back taxes. Pres. Obama cited the Hispanic turnout during last week’s election as his motivation for moving immigration up on his list of agenda items.
Here’s the complete transcript regarding immigration from Pres. Obama’s press conference:
Tilt your screen back ;)
President Obama is calling for $200 billion in economic stimulus spending in his proposal to avoid the “fiscal cliff,” but few voters believe increased government spending will stimulate the economy. Most think tax cuts are the better way to go.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 19% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the government should increase federal spending to help stimulate the economy. Sixty-two percent (62%) oppose new spending as an economic stimulus. Nineteen percent (19%) are undecided.
All I want to know is, who are those 19% that are in favor for it? And if such a large majority of Americans believe in he GOP way in handling the economy why is there still a democrat in office? Miss informed voters???
