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.
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???
President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image.
And the narcissism continues: To honor the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, President Obama paid homage with a picture of himself.
Everything in Obamacare that Obama didn’t want you to focus on or think about, the 90 percent of his trillion-dollar tax increase, was pushed over until after he got himself safely re-elected. All those regulations you’re now hearing about, that are being talked about, those all hit after the election. We got four bad years of regulation taxes. He wants to add higher taxes to that will keep pushing us off the cliff. Let’s not pretend who is pushing us off the cliff.
I heard you say you would not guarantee Social Security checks if the debt ceiling is not raised… Why is it the scare always has to do with Social Security, our Soldiers pay, and Medicare??? Why not STOP your pay, your staff’s pay or congress??? Let us hold the pay checks of all the house and senate members and see how fast they resolve this mess!
If you agree, re-post and keep it going across this nation.
RUBIO does a GREAT job explaining the Fiscal Cliff.
Time has nominated the new face of birth control (or shall I say “redistribution of wealth and government dependency.” as their “Person of the Year 2012.”
How appropriate in the Year of the Dependent (on the Government) that Time pick the poster child for government dependence. She wants conservatives to stay out of the bedroom except when it come s time to pick up the bill….very fitting..
