Looking through the many things that I read and write from, when it comes to getting information for this blog, I come across some interesting things. Sometimes interesting in a good way, sometimes bad….sometimes downright arrogant. This is what I found last night.
I was looking at the Rush Limbaugh site and found something about the republicans complaining about the proposed spending spree the democrats want. They were saying that ‘it isn’t their money, and they are not crazy about all of this,’ to which, Pelosi said, (paraphrasing) about the proposed spending of billions and billions of dollars:
“We won the election, we wrote the legislation, it’s our bill and it’s going to pass.”
Now on the Rush site with that, was a link to the story posted on Politico, entitled: Obama to GOP: ‘I won’ Here is how the story goes, and it shows the arrogant, power hungry attitude that only the democrats in power can get away with, because only the democrats are fully invested in their power over the people. In other words, they care for nothing anyone says, but what they want.
President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.
Yes my friends, he won, but even when Bush won in 2000, and the Republicans won the house and the senate in 1994, they didn’t get to wield this kind of arrogant power. The democrats wouldn’t let them. Even though the democrats were not in charge, they acted like it, and they told the majority Republicans at every turn that they had to be included in everything. But now? Not so. The democrats are in charge, and that is what is going to be. The republicans have NO say in anything! They are the minority and they had better act that way! That is the kind of corrupted and complete power that the democrats have been working to get since the Republican takeover of the house and senate in 1994. They have been working towards this, even while not in charge, throwing their weight around like they were. Crying for bi-partisanship in everything, which they got more than they let on. The Republicans probably giving in to their demands thinking that when they lost power the democrats would do the same. NOPE. That ain’t going to happen. The story on Politico goes on to say:
The exchange arose as top House and Senate Republicans expressed concern to the president about the amount of spending in the package. They also raised red flags about a refundable tax credit that returns money to those who don’t pay income taxes, the sources said.
The Republicans stressed that they want to include more middle class tax cuts in the package, citing their proposal to cut the two lowest tax rates — 15% and 10% — to ten percent and five percent, rather than issue the refundable credit Obama wants.
….But perhaps taking a cue from Obama’s “I won” line when Democrats were asked if they were concerned about Repulbicans blocking the package, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had a swift one-word answer: “No.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the bill was on track for passage by February 16, while Republicans continued to voice their opposition.
“We expressed our concerns about some of the spending that’s being proposed in the House bill,” House minority leader John Boehner said after meeting with Obama.
“How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives?” Boehner asked. “How does that stimulate the economy?”
Boehner also went on to say that “Government can’t solve this problem.”
At least, someone there gets it. Government cannot solve this problem. Especially according to Reid, the stimulus funds, that are nearing $1 trillion dollars now, ‘won’t be pumped into the economy until 2010 and doesn’t provide an accurate picture of how it will help.’ What???!???!!!
They can’t even tell if it’s even going to work and yet they want to spend a trillion more of your money just because they can?
Lets get this into prospective here. Here in Indianapolis, Indiana, there is a car dealer that is working to get out car loans to the tune of 1.5 billion. Now if you think about it, 1.5 billion is one hell of a lot less than one trillion, and here is what the commercial says. ‘Just how much is one point five billion? If you got 3,000 dollars a day, you would get it for over 3,000 years before it would be used up. 1.5 billion is a lot of money people, and 1 trillion is much much much more and our democratic congress is flipping that amount out, like it is chump change. Just where in the hell are they going to get this money? And they are saying now what they have been saying all along. If it doesn’t pass now, the economy will be in bad shape…..Let’s see.
Remember Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and that bailout? The democrats and the government passed that off as, ‘if it doesn’t happen the economy will suffer.’ So it happened. The same thing was said about the next four bailouts…..if it doesn’t happen, we will all suffer for it.
This wanton spending of money that is coming out of the pockets of generations not yet even thought of yet, is disgraceful and shameful.
But the democrats don’t care. They won, and they are in power now and can do whatever they damn well please. When are we going to wise up and put a stop to this?
The democrats ran on the platform of change and won with that. One of the talking points of that was the amount of money the Bush administration had spent…..and the way the national debt “skyrocketed”!
Hell people, at the rate the democrats are going now, the Bush years are going to look like a microscopic drop in the bucket in comparision, in just a short period of time. And in four years? I hate to think about it. A trillion here, a trillion there, a trillion over in the corner, a couple trillion for this, a couple trillion for that…..Shit people, we are heading for an economic disaster that will make the ’29 crash look like a walk in complete luxury, the park. Can’t you see it coming? And if you do, why aren’t you doing anything about it?
We are in trouble people, and we voted the trouble in. This has got to stop because it is quickly getting out of control, and we are all going to pay for it in the end. Obama has even said so. Folks, he told us what he was going to do. That should have scared us into not voting him in……..but I have to say this. He is keeping his promise. It’s happening, and we are not going to be liking it when the bill comes due. But then, it will be too late. It isn’t now. We have to call Washington and let them know we do not want this. It is the only way now, because we have a Power hungry group of people there, who now have the power, for years they have chased. And they will not give it up to the concerns of Republicans in the House. And if that doesn’t concern you…..maybe this will This, about the 825 billion stimulus bill so far, is a quote from Nancy Pelosi: “It has grown, and we’re still in the process.” Oh my God. This spending spree, that everyone else is going to have to pay for, has got to be put to a halt, before this country is bankrupt. And it is coming folks. It is coming.
