From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.
That quote above says what socialism is. Now I ask you, what in that quote is different from what Obama said this afternoon? HMMMMM?
From his speech this afternoon, Obama said almost exactly that. His budget plan is to tax the rich because they can afford to pay more, and give to the poor in more government programs. The trouble is, according to the Government accounting office, the top 2% in wage earners already pay 40% or more in the taxes collected from us now! If you don’t believe me, then Google it. It is all there. And on top of that, The budget compromise struck last weekend has been exposed by the Congressional Budget Office as a SHAM. The CBO reports that the alleged $38 billion in cuts actually amounts to just $353 million in real cuts! So we have been lied to again, and today, it goes on.
In a speech that forcefully rejected Republican budget-cutting plans, President Barack Obama this afternoon, proposed lowering the nation’s future deficits by $4 trillion over a dozen years and vowed he would not allow benefit cuts for the poor and the elderly to pay for tax breaks for the rich. In other words, he wants the spending to continue, because he, like all liberals think that the American people cannot make it without government.
“That’s not right and it’s not going to happen as long as I’m president,” Obama declared.
But what Obama is forgetting here, is that he may be president, but he is just an employee for We the People. And, We the People spoke loud and clear in November, telling the government, and Obama, that we do not like the direction he is heading this country towards. And the direction needs to be changed.
Obama’s speech today was nothing more than a directory to lead us to socialism, and bigger government, as mandated by the liberals in power, against the people.
And he got down to the brass tacks here when he recommended trimming health care costs in Medicare and Medicaid. He also called for cuts in defense, just like all democrats seem to do, and an end to Bush-era tax cuts for the rich.
One of the most insane things he said, if you think about what he has stood for since taking office, is this:
“We have to live within our means, we have to reduce our deficit, and we have to get back on a path that will allow us to pay down our debt,”
REALLY?!?!?!?!? That is what the people have been telling him since he took office and started spending our money like a drunken fool. And being that fool now, he thinks we won’t remember that.
And to top this whole thing off, instead of taking responsibility for his part in this fiasco that we now find ourselves in, Obama turned and did what he has always done. Blame everyone else, starting with Bush, when he laid the blame for the rising debt on the spending increases and tax cuts enacted during the presidency of George W. Bush and the recession that struck in late 2007. “We lost our way,” he said.
On that I am sorry but I have to get in Obama’s face and say this. The only ones who lost their way was you and your liberal co-horts. Do not blame that on the people. WE HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU THIS since you started spending like the fool that you are. Get off your high horse and take the blame for your part in this. And your part is a big one. Over 2 trillion in a very short amount of time.
After Obama talked of raising taxes in his speech, House speaker John Boehner said: “If we’re going to resolve our differences and do something meaningful, raising taxes will not be part of that.”
Obama’s speech this afternoon reeks of Marxism and Socialism. The old take from the rich and give to the poor scheme is front and center of it. And like the Government Accounting Office says, the rich already pay almost 50% of all taxes now. Taxing them more will kill jobs, and kill this economy. It will take the incentive away from them to hire people and keep their businesses going.
WAY TO GO OBAMA. Another America destroying idea from your mind to us. I can’t wait for November of 2012, when you will be voted out of office.
The problem that I have with the democrats is this. If you have a tax cut, then, according to the democrats, there has to be something else to pay for the tax cuts. REALLY???? Why? When I have to cut something because I can’t afford something, nothing else takes its place to pay for what I can’t pay for. Why can’t the government cut down on it’s spending? Obama and the liberals and some republicans too, expect us to do that, why can’t they?
My other problem is with the Republicans. Why do they always have to compromise on anything with the democrats. That is NOT what we elected you for. Compromise only helps the democrats because they are patient. They always go after more than they know they will get, because they know in the end, they will get something. We have been steadily moving towards socialism for decades because the republicans always compromise. WE WON THIS LAST ELECTION. THERE IS NO NEED TO COMPROMISE ANYMORE. For if we continue to compromise, we will stop winning any elections because compromise goes against what we were elected for. If I was a member of the senate or the house, I wouldn’t compromise. That is like compromising with an enemy on something you believe in for what the enemy believes. I wouldn’t do it.
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.
