In what has to be one of the top three most oxymoronic headlines in the last 120 days, Reuters tosses up the following: “Obama seeks fiscal responsibility mantle”. The other two contenders were: “Bill Clinton Chides Edwards Over Infidelity” and “Biden Swears Off Brandy..Not The Singer..”
Suddenly after nearly four months of socialist savagery directed at the economy and the middle class, Obama wants “fiscal responsibility..” Yes, he is “serious about improving the U.S. budget picture..” The only way that that would be possible would be for him to consider going back to training his ACORN acolytes and partying with Bill Ayers..
Obama wants passage of a “pay as you go” type of legislation. This is not to be confused with another popular liberal Democratic political ploy called “pay to play” featuring almost Obama cabinet member Bill Richardson and Illinois liberal Rod Blagojevich.. Here Obama is taxing the public’s ability to swallow vast amounts of his socialist syrup of Ipecac. He would “require” any “tax cuts and spending programs to be paid for within the budget..” Obama has endorsed the printing of “free money” (no problem with inflation there..) so this should not present any problems for the green eye shaded galoot. The imaginary “tax cuts” that Obama will be presenting as the mid term election draws near are just the particleboard store fronts at the entrance to his progressive Potemkin Village. His beloved “spending programs” will always sail through unchecked, he will demand that government “move quickly” as he says when it is time to molest the middle class without any thorough crime scene investigation..
This is all “very simple” according to Obama, “Congress can only spend a dollar if it saves a dollar elsewhere..” This WILL be easy for the liberals, cut a dollar from defense, give it to “the indigent”. Cut a dollar from ballistic missile technology, give it to “the poor”. What is their excuse for closing tax “loopholes” benefiting the middle class or for raising taxes as opposed to cutting them? “..We inherited this mess..” This is true. You inherited this “mess” from yourselves, the majority in both Houses since 2006..
Now after creating budget deficits of nearly two trillion dollars this year alone (12.9 per cent of the gross domestic product) through “Marxist mirroring”, he feels the urge to put on a dog and pony show of “restraint” replete with a patented Clinton “finger wag” or two. This is all just disingenuous Democratic demagoguery because even in his own tainted words, we have a “health care crisis..”
NOW Obama has made “health care reform” his “number one priority”, which has now replaced “Dismantle America As A World Power”. No problem, Obama has now said that “Congress can borrow tens of billions of dollars and put the nation even deeper in debt to jump-start the administration’s emerging health care overhaul..” (Obama: It’s OK to borrow to pay for health care” Yahoo News)
That’s right, his “health care reform would get a green light (operated by liberal Reds..) to run big deficits in its early years..” Just how many “years” we will never know but based upon his previous handy works, I feel safe in guessing at about fifty or more..
Where is all of this “fiscal discipline” that he was bleating about yesterday? Even if the Dork Knight stopped spending like Biden at the liquor store TODAY, he has created “exploding deficits projected to total ten trillion dollars over the next decade.” Again, for dramatic effect he said, “The pay as you go rule is very simple. Congress can only spend a dollar if it saves a dollar somewhere else..” All of this “saving” baloney reminds me of his imbecilic “saving” of jobs.. No proof, just take his weasely words for it..
Yahoo’s story even admits that “Obama’s health care plan will add many billions of dollars to the deficit in the early years..” Remember, he “inherited” this “mess”.. In four YEARS Bush, through 9-11 and the Wars ran a deficit of between $159 billion and $413 billion. In less than FOUR MONTHS, Obama has QUADRUPLED those amounts.. “The federal (OBAMA) deficit is on pace to explode past $1.8 trillion this year, more than four times last year’s all-time high..” This talk of “fiscal responsibility” from Obama represents the comical side of communism..
Congress appears right on track to “award increase averaging 12 per cent to non-defense programs..” Again, this is no problem for the liberal liars. “Obama’s proposal would require future tax cuts to be financed by tax increases elsewhere..” Here we have the “Three Card Monte” of liberal tax “cuts”.. Twelve per cent more goes to programs enabling sloth and perpetuating the lowest (Democratic) class in perpetuity but tax cuts are financed by tax increases..
They are at least realistic enough to understand that time is not on their side, thus the need to rush everything through. The PERMANENT damage done by the Totalitarian tyros will be front and center in 2010. In “Dems double down on health care” (Politico) the left is applying “pressure to move quickly on Obama’s top first year legislative priority..” Here we revisit the “game plan” used with the “$787 billion dollar stimulus package”, otherwise known as the Obama “Sold Me A Bill of Goods” Bill..
The amperage surrounding the “crisis” begets the necessity to “move quickly”.. Even Henry Waxman is chiming in, “This is the year we have to do it..” They realize that this is the progressive “perfect storm”. They will be out in either the House or the Senate (or possibly both?) in 2010, so they have to move on as many of their destructive Democratic dirty deals as they can before the axe falls.
The story reports of “fiscally conservative blue dog Democrats” and “moderate Democrats” (WHO??) expressing concern that the Obama fascism will “undermine the private market”. As an aside, whoever these folks are, they dropped the ball on the banks, Chrysler and General Motors.. These reservations were pooh-poohed by Waxman who said, “Why should private companies object to competition?” The left and their socialistic susceptibilities are all about eliminating “competition” on every front.. The snorts from the Holland Tunnel sized nostrils of Waxman are just the Democratic diversions away from their strangulation of any and all “competition” with their liberal leviathan government..
“..The more liberal members want a more expansive-and expensive- plan..” Imagine my surprise.. Representative Brian Blair (L-WA.) “told colleagues that any bill should include mental health and dental insurance..” Blair must be tired if hearing about burden that Howard Dean’s psychiatric sessions place upon his bank account..
Even the union stooges were compelled to whine and pule. Andy Stern “president” of the Service Employees International Union copiously congratulated the committee for its “courage and passion to provide Americans with more choices and more affordable health care options including one guaranteed by the government that puts the good of the American people ahead of profits..” I hope that this union zombie will remember that when their next contract negotiation rolls around.. I would like to see this marionette read the Constitution and point out the portion outlining “guaranteed governmental health care”. I’d just be happy if he could read..
So Obama wants to spend a dollar ONLY when he can save a dollar, tax cuts are to be funded by tax increases elsewhere and the liberals want a more “expansive and expensive” health care “option” “guaranteed by the government”..
Think 2010, never give up, never give in and never again..
