The debt ceiling debate has been going on for several days.
If Bush "drove the economy in the ditch", how'd he do that? The reason the economy sucks is due to the housing/credit crisis perpetrated by liberal policies. Yes, GWB also over-spent.
But, explain how spending 400% more than during the Bush years going to unprecedentedly improve things now?! It won't, of course. Cutting spending and cutting taxes will improve the dollar and will create jobs. But, who needs facts when there are people to control and successful people to demonize.
As president obama's "stimulus" (taxpayer money laundered to supporters) only served to drive unemployment higher and inflation higher. He has no energy policy, the party ruling congress since 2006 hasn't a budget, and the American dollar is weak. As proven by his obamacare methods: he doesn't care how expensive, dirty or destructive a plan is as long as he gets his way. He is way beyond "that's just politics" and is affecting generations of innocent Americans with his economic recklessness.
Throughout the debat, obama has been the minister of misinformation.
Here's his whopper today:
"we’re not giving out a bunch of tax breaks to companies that don’t need them and are not creating jobs"
This is classic American liberalism: handcuff businesses with outrageous taxes and regulations, support an inflexible inefficient union, drive the American dollar down - and then, when job-creation cannot happen - blame business!
Look at Detroit for an example, or communist USSR, or current Venezuela. This is barack obama's dream America. In those situations, the "leader" has a lot of power and eats pretty well. Nobody else does, but that's just collateral damage to narcissistic socialists.
I don't think Detroit-results are the dream of most of his followers, but they are aiding this kind of inevitability.
He then goes on to say that "80% of Americans agree with me on this". ! Really! Where did he get that poll? It's an outright lie of course, and probably a reflection of the idiots he tends to surround himself.
(I do believe polls are showing that around 80% of Americans oppose his awful obamacare though). He lied to pass obamacare, he'll lie to pass the debt ceiling increase.
And, look at this:
- July 13, 2009: on obamacare: plan won’t “pull the plug on Grandma.”
- July 12, 2011: Obama threatens to withhold Social Security checks: “I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it”
Right now the "child emperor" is cornered by the effects of his own irresponsible economic policies. Thank God some constitutional politicians are standing up to his destructive intentions.
Update: Now, he's preaching about "shared sacrifices". Excuse me?! The more someone earns the more they pay in income taxes already. What "shared sacrifices" are made by the 50% of Americans that pay zero income taxes and receiving entitlements paid for by job-creators?
Cut spending = jobs.
