“Every single day since I signed the reform law, there’s been another poll or headline that said, ‘Nation still divided on health care reform. Polls haven’t changed yet.’ Well, yes. It just happened last week,”
“Can you imagine if some of these reporters were working on a farm and you planted some seeds, and they came out the next day and they looked and — ‘Nothing’s happened. There’s no crop. We’re going to starve. Oh, no! It’s a disaster!’ It’s been a week, folks. So, before we find out if people like health care reform, we should wait to see what happens when we actually put it into place. Just a thought.”
I have to sit and wonder, just how long it is going to take, for this whole idea to get through Obama’s thick skull, that this is NOT a good bill? Well, to the democrats who are pushing this, it will not dawn on them that this is bad. And because of this my friends, they are going to act like school yard bullies when they are opposed on this. Which is what is going on. You think that your insurance on this plan is going to be good? You better think again. Rationing is coming. Death panels are coming. If you don’t believe me, take a look at europe’s healthcare. That is what Obama has patterned his after. People are being denied care all over the place there because the government’s cannot afford to take care of all of them.
Anyone who opposes this bill of Obama’s has been labeled as someone who is NOT patriotic, who is a traitor to America, who is nothing but a fanatic that poses no good to America. But the problem is, it is the other way around. Obama can’t even treat the leader of our greatest ally with respect. When Netanyahu and Obama had their little “summit” a while back, Obama treated the Israeli leader with contempt. And yet, he treats the leaders of our enemies, with the greatest of respect and honor. So instead of being our President, and honoring this land, he is doing his damnedest to tear this country down.
He is pleased as anything that his health care bill has been passed, and yet, thinks that all of the Tea Parties are nothing more than people who are not giving his bill a chance to work. The difference is, the people know it won’t work, and don’t want it. Obama knows it won’t work either, but wants it that way. He does not care for the well being of this country, and he never has. So, for all you who voted for this un-American idiot, how is your hope and change so far? I bet it isn’t a good as you thought it would be.
From the Heritage Foundation, the Foundry, is this little gem today:
Morning Bell: Welcome to the Obama Dependency Economy
Today the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor and Statistics released its monthly jobs report showing that the nation’s unemployment is 9.7% for the third month in a row. While the jobs report does indicate that 162,000 net jobs were created in March, almost 50,000 of those jobs were temporary government Census jobs that do not reflect any real economic progress. In total, the U.S. economy has now lost a total of 3.8 million jobs since President Barack Obama signed his $862 billion stimulus plan. We are 8.1 million jobs short of the 138.6 million he promised the American people.
It is good to see the American economy finally recovering again. It demonstrates the resilience of the American entrepreneur in the face a punishing job killing agenda from Washington. And don’t fall for any White House claims that this belated recovery is due to the stimulus. As the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) admitted last month, its analysis of the stimulus’ job creating record was simply “essentially repeating the same exercise” as the initial projections. In other words, the CBO numbers on the stimulus don’t take any actual new real world data into account. Working with actual data, Veronique de Rugy of George Mason University’s Mercatus Center has found: 1) no statistical correlation between unemployment and how the $862 billion was spent; 2) that Democratic districts received one-and-a-half times as many awards as Republican ones; and 3) an average cost of $286,000 was awarded per job created. $286,000 per job created. That is simply a bad investment.
And President Obama’s future agenda is full bad investments. His recently released budget would raise taxes on all Americans by nearly $3 trillion over the next decade; borrow 42 cents for each dollar spent in 2010; and double the publicly held national debt to more than $18 trillion. This is simply unsustainable. As Thomas Edsall writes in The Atlantic: “Net annual interest on the debt will more than triple during the next ten years, according to the CBO, shooting from $207 billion in 2010, to $723 billion in 2020, more than doubling as a share of GDP, from 1.4 percent to 3.2 percent.” The cause of these exploding deficits is spending and that spending is making the American public more and more dependent on the federal government Edsall continues: “According to the Federal Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the share of total personal income in the United States that comes from government transfer programs – Social Security, Medicare, veterans’ benefits, unemployment compensation, etc. – has grown rapidly over the past six decades, from 5.9 cents of every dollar in 1950 … to 17.3 cents in 2009. In addition, according to BEA, another 9.8 cents of every dollar went, in 2009, to salaries for state, local and federal government employees, a figure that does not include costs of fringe benefits. In other words, more than a quarter of all personal income in the United States is paid for with tax dollars.”
Heritage’s own Index of Dependence on Government shows a steep rise in American reliance on government: “The burgeoning of flagship entitlement programs and the shrinking number of taxpayers who have any financial stake in the government threaten to bankrupt the government–which has led to an increasing interest across the political spectrum in the growth of dependency-creating initiatives.” And one of the strongest dependency-creating special interests, government unions, reached a key tipping this year. As Heritage’s own James Sherk was the first to document, government union workers now out number those in the private sector. Edsall explains what this means for the American people: “The consequences of this shift are profound. A majority of the American labor movement is now directly dependent on tax dollars. In terms of political orientation, these workers can now be described as tax consumers as well as tax payers. For these workers, a tax increase may result in a slightly smaller paycheck but, more importantly, the hike means more money is available to pay for raises and new benefits.”
People, we have to watch what Obama and the Democrats are doing here. Because right now they are running scared. They know they are in trouble politically, and yet, they think that the American people are so stupid, that we will believe that it is the Right, the Rush Limbaugh’s and the Sean Hannity’s and the Michael Reagans and the Laura Ingraham’s and the Robert Gardings and the Seane Anna’s and the Douglas V. Gibbs and the Loki’s of this nation that are the ones spewing out the vitriol and hate. When the truth of the matter is, it is the democrats who are spewing forth the vitriol. as a matter of fact, the Democrats specialize in hate speech. In a recent interview with Obama, by CBS’s liberal reporter, Harry Smith, when he asked Obama: I’ve been spending time out and about listening to talk radio. The kindest of terms you’re sometimes referred to out in America is a socialist. The worst of which I’ve heard is called a Nazi. Are you aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made their daily conversation about you? Now I don’t know about you, but I haven’t heard anyone call Obama a Nazi, but, I remember Bush being called one by the liberals. The interview goes on like this:
OBAMA: When you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck —
SMITH: It’s beyond that.
OBAMA: It’s pretty apparent and it’s troublesome. But keep in mind that there have been periods in American history where this kind of vitriol comes out. It happens often when you’ve got an economy that is making people more anxious and people are feeling as if there’s a lot of change that needs to take place. But that’s not the vast majority of Americans. I think the vast majority of Americans know that we’re trying hard, that I want what’s best for the country.
Maybe, Obama, you can stop and think for a bit, and put the blame right where it really belongs. ON YOUR SHOULDERS. HUH???? That is the only place that it feels at home. So stop trying to blame the American people and Rush and the rest of us, for your mistakes and your assassination attempts on this country.
