If we choose to keep those tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires — if we choose to keep a corporate tax break for corporate jet owners, if we choose to keep tax breaks for oil companies that are makin’ hundreds of billions of dollars — then that means we’ve gotta to cut some kids off from getting a college scholarship. That means we’ve gotta stop … funding … certain grants for medical research. I think it’s only fair to ask an oil company or a corporate jet owner that has done so well to give up that tax break that no other business enjoys.
Wasn’t this exactly what your stimulus was for Obama? Your “shovel ready jobs” that wouldn’t be able to be done without it? And now, your laughing at these “shovel ready jobs”? Now you want to raise the debt limit, and your coming off with your list of “Horribles” as Rush called them. They are here, in his speech today.
This whole thing about the deficit is bugging me. During the first two years of this “kid president”’s term he spent like a drunken banshee with no regard for anything but getting his hands on more money to spend. NOW, that the next election is looming, he is changing his tune a lot and his primary subject now is the budget. After destroying the economy, he now wants to be the savior of it. It is the only way he can run on his record. Change it. And change of his policies is all we have heard from Obama, right from the beginning.
He says that spending cuts that the republicans want is okay, but it has to be balanced with more revenue. With that, Obama is wrong again. Spending cuts are always good. Tax cuts too. They have been proven to bring in more revenue. But Obama is talking about more taxes. This has always proven to be the wrong thing to do. What is needed is government spending to be curtailed and cut. To hell with more revenue Mr. Obama. You are getting way to much already!
And to top this whole fiasco off, Obama is doing his usual, blame others for his troubles. Right now, it’s the Republicans who are trying to sabotage the economy by going against the debt limit raise while demanding spending being cut. OH MY GOD! This is horrible. The Republicans are actually trying to slow down government spending. That can’t be done!!! Oh yes it can! And he did say more:
OBAMA: The revenue we’re talking about isn’t coming out of the pockets of middle-class families that are struggling; it’s coming out of folks who are doing extraordinarily well and are enjoying the lowest tax rates since before I was born. They’re lower than they’ve been since the 1950s, and you can afford it. You’ll still be able to ride on your corporate jet; you’re just gonna have to pay a little more. If we do not have those revenues then the kinds of cuts that would be required might compromise the National Weather Service. It means that we would not be funding critical medical research. It means that food inspection might be compromised.
The Republicans are only doing what they were put in Washington to do. Right now, Obama is in a press conference, figuring out ways to give you a scare list of things that will happen if the debt limit isn’t raised, and taxes aren’t raised. Of course, none of these things he is saying is going to happen.
He is talking of expanding the economy, and then he is turning around and wanting to raise taxes on the oil companies. But who is going to get soaked with these ‘tax increases’ if he is successful in doing that? If you guessed you and I, then you are right. If you guessed the oil companies, you would be wrong.
All of what Obama is wanting to do is so “patently absurd” as Rush says, that it’s ridiculous. And if what I was saying here wasn’t the truth, then why is the media ignoring all of this? But all of this can be found, if you looked!
We need to start being more informed so the administration can’t do these things to the American people. Obama is trying to destroy this economy. It’s as plain and simple as that. And if he succeeds in raising these taxes on the corporations and the rich, we will still get hit. …. because they will pass those tax hikes onto us….the customers. So, he is wrong there too folks.
He will scare us into thinking all kinds of terrible things will happen to innocent people who are in need, instead of focusing on what it will do to help destroy the American economy……which it will do by the way. Lesson 101 on the economy and social justice, should show this. It is nothing more than the socialistic ideas that has been going on, that takes from the people who work for it, and gives it to the people who will not work for it. Class Envy 101 there folks, and also “Dauntless” who commented here the other day saying that we were polar opposite from Socialism, if you watch, you will see through Obama, socialism at work. And we are going to get the faces to the people that, according to Obama, the republicans are trying to destroy, when it is Obama himself who is doing the destroying. NOT THE REPUBLICANS. And the Republicans had better hang tough, because they are not at fault for what is going on. They are the ones doing what needs to be done to save this economy.
Thinking of what Obama is doing to this country boils my blood. Plain and simple.
He did get one thing right, though, he has no idea how to do it. The people who are hurting need help. Yes they do, which is why we the people will get rid of Obama come November. Do not doubt me.
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.
