LBJ’s “Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler told Congress today that the government would be unable to pay all its bill if the ceiling on the national debt was not lifted within 30 days. Fowler ran into Republican hostility in day-long testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee… Fowler asked that the ceiling be raised by $7 billion to $337 billion to cover the period until June 30. Further legislation covering the period after June 30 will be needed later he said. Fowler said that payments for such things as old age benefits, veterans pensions, public assistance benefits, tax refunds, and the salaries of government workers would be threatened if the ceiling were not raised.”
-New York Times, January 30, 1967-
We have all been hearing the democrats mostly, saying that if the debt ceiling isn’t raised, the country would be in trouble. Well, my friends, this has been a mainstay of the democrat playbook for generations now. The quote from above is the democrats (the left) telling the nation the same thing that they are saying today, though it isn’t from today. It is from January of 1967! And my friends, there are more examples of this.
The trouble with this is, we have to stop what we are doing. A stopping point has been reached. In 1967, it hadn’t been reached yet. But the debt limit has been raised numerous times, and everytime it is raised the government spends like crazy till the new level is reached, then we get the scare tactics again telling all of us what would happen if the limit isn’t raised. Why have a debt limit if the government is going to constantly do this?
This is the playbook folks. Now we have Debbie “blabbermouth” Schultz, *as Rush calls her, appropriately, going out and “slimeing” Allen West on the floor of the House, accusing him of wanting to balance the budget on the backs of seasoned citizens and basically sending them off to their deaths by taking away from them Medicare and Social Security. The problem is, this is just the same democrat play book of scaring people into doing what they want the people to do. Vote against what is good for the nation, and doing what they want. None of what Debbie Schultz has said is true of course. But back to the article from the New York Times in 1967, it says:
“Fowler said unless the debt limit is increased by the end of February at which time our outstanding obligations would exceed that which we could legally borrow the possibility of an economic and monetary derangement will be a reality.”
This is from 1967 now folks, and though the numbers are different, the talk from the left is exactly the same. They were threatening default back then too. They were telling us it is a crisis. Sound familiar? In 1967 the democrats told us that it was a crisis and they created chaos out of it. The democrat playbook can be traced back to then. Probably farther if we tried. But that isn’t the only example of this.
Jimmy Carter’s Treasury secretary, April 3rd, 1979:“The US House of Representatives passed legislation yesterday that extended the debt ceiling. It came after the House rejected a Republican-led attempt to tack on a strong amendment calling for a balanced federal budget.”
This my friends was in 1979! YOU HEARING THIS?
The democrat playbook does this. Now, last week and many days before that, your attention has been called to the Democrat Party Playbook, the Leftist Playbook about how class envy and certain elements are involved in it. Like when Obama came out the other day and said, “Social Security checks and checks for veterans, I can’t guarantee they’re gonna go out.” Scare mongering folks. Meant to get what they want. To hell with what good it does for the people. To them, balancing the budget isn’t something that needs to be done. HUH?
Try running your own household without balancing your budget and see how far you get. If we keep doing what the democrats want, we are going to end up like Greece. The democrats need to be ousted from office. Plain and simple.
Obama keeps saying that the republicans in the house are sabotaging the economy by demanding that compromise isn’t to be a part of this. He says that they are playing politics with Compromise. What is being forgotten here is, the Republlicans have compromised with the Cut, Cap n Balance bill. They approved raising the debt ceiling, but also in the same bill is what Reagan said we needed. A balanced budget amendment to the constitution. Well, I say, it’s time the democrats stopped lying and admit they want only their ideas, with nothing but compromise from the republicans. We have given away enough of our freedoms and greatness of this nation by compromising. This time isn’t our time to compromise.
And the gang of six’s plan does nothing but give Obama what he wants. And he has said that the balanced budget is just a trick and ploy. My friends, Obama doesn’t believe in a balanced budget.
It’s time the Republican’s stopped compromising.
The other day, when the vile and disgusting Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on a tirade against Allen West calling him everything she could, Mr. West sent a letter to Ms Schultz telling her what he should have. He told here on the floor of the house that she was “vile,” “unprofessional,” “despicable” and “not a Lady” after she referenced him during debate over the GOP debt plan on the House floor. Now we have a war of words from Ms Schultz, who I do not respect, and Allen West who is working FOR THIS COUNTRY.
And because of this Allen West response, it is amazing to me that even so called Conservatives are going after him for it. When are we going to learn that we have to be tough, or this nation will cease to be strong and great. HOW FREAKING HARD IS THAT TO UNDERSTAND?
We keep hearing the Democrats lately quoting Ronald Reagan, about him raising the debt ceiling, but the leave out the great part of his speech that also said that we have to defend the full faith and credit of the United States and the way out of the troubles we were having is not a tax hike, but a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. That is what the republicans are trying to do now, and the democrats, and Obama are against that. That should tell us all that the Democrats and Obama are not friends of the United States.
It is as Mike Pence of Indiana has said,Washington D.C., is not only broke, it’s broken.”
We have got to heed the warning signs here and stop listening to Obama, Schumer, Pelosi and the rest of the leftist socialist idiots that represent our left side of the government and start standing up for liberty, justice and the American Way. Follow the Constitution and stop pussy footing around it. It is the only way to save this great republic.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
