Debt Crisis: Trust Americans, Not The Fools From The Political Industrial Complex

Published by at 10:32 am under All General Discussions

Waited to see what President Obama had to offer this morning, and sadly it was so moronic I am surprised (not really, more disappointed) that the news media can’t see the President’s lame shell game here.

Obama basically said this: I have identified a ton of painful domestic cuts, but I won’t support these painful cuts unless millionaires i.e., small businesses) pay a price (i.e., tax increases). What he NEVER said was he would use the new tax revenues to refund those painful cuts! Yes folks, his version of shared sacrifice is higher taxes for the upper class, painful cuts in programs and services for everyone else, and money for the bankers and lenders who buy up the debt!! What a deal!

The only question is why can’t we just do the painful cuts? He was going to do them anyway! Why not cut funding and leave the market to rebuild the economy. We know the government can’t do it. They wasted over $5 trillion dollars (that is over $16,000 per man, woman and child in the country) in new debt since Obama was sworn in. I would have preferred the $100,000 my family of 6 to lost Democrat incompetence. We could have done much more with it.

We have a choice here. Cut the money addiction in Washington and let Americans keep their hard earned money to create jobs, opportunities, careers, families, good lives – basically the American Dream. Or we give people like Obama, Reid and Pelosi our money so they can live the good life and dole it back out to us as they see fit.

The GOP, Tea Party and vast majorities of Independents trust Americans over the nuts in DC. It’s that new Libertarian force that arose from 2009 to 2010 in the electorate. The entire Political Industrial Complex that spans incompetent bureaucrats, politician, lobbyists and the partisan news media cannot do what Americans can do with their own money. None of them deserve America’s trust, let alone our hard earned money.

Pass what is needed in the House and let the Dems try and claim, as Obama said, he has no solutions to the cuts, but he plans to keep wasting money by starving our economy of the resources to create jobs. Bring it on!

Addendum: BTW, in case this is still not clear, if Obama raises taxes and then does not execute those painful domestic cuts, then all he did was raise taxes! So again, all he is offering is tax hikes alone, or tax hikes and painful cuts – only a naive journalist would be fooled by that one.

Update: Excellent open thread discussion at Hot Air

    I have heard your thinking a zillion times, the same old story Mr. President. I say GIVE HIM WHAT HE WANTS AND LET HIM LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES. We need to get rid of this guy ASAP.

    Kathie, Obama and the Dems are not willing and serious enough to cut spending and balance the budget. Their words mean nothing. Since they are so unwilling to work with the Republicans, I say, give them what they want and the consequences are on their own asses.

    But guess what…when the consequences become that visible to the American public, the first thing that they will do is to blame it on the Republicans!


    I don’t know how this can help the Republicans build a significant conservativemajority in both houses and replace Obama at the same time. The fact that we had a democrat in the white house (clinton) and republican majority in the Senate and House didn’t achieve a significant conservative legislation. Just more of what we see between Obama, the Democrats versus the Republicans.
