Obama Resorts to Class Warfare & Fear Mongering

In 2006 then Senator Obama said that raising the debt limit “was a sign of our government’s reckless fiscal policies.” In case you were wondering the debt limit at the time was $8 trillion.

Now that the president has eclipsed $14 trillion in debt he is demanding that Congress raise taxes and the debt ceiling so that he can continue to spend money like a drunken sailor on shore leave (my apologies to you Navy guys). Rather than do the responsible thing and get spending under control the president has decided to take a page out of the old Democrat playbook and resort to class warfare and fear mongering of the lowest order.

Obama’s desperate attempt to polarize the topic by stating that we won’t be able to educate our kids, inspect our food supply, fund the National Weather Service, or pay for much needed medical research if we don’t raise taxes is a page right out of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

The president and the left are fond of the phrase that the rich don’t pay their fair share, however, America’s progressive tax system ensures that the rich pay more than their fair share. In fact nearly half of the people in America pay no taxes at all. According to Liberty Works the top tax rate in 1990 was 28%, today its 35%, and will be going to 39.6% in January 2013.

Not to mention that Obamacare is rife with new taxes and according to recent CBO report, adds over $145 billion in deficit spending contrary to the president saying it would reduce the debt. Couple this with one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world and you have the makings for financial disaster.

The president had the nerve to lambaste Republicans for ending the current session of Congress rather than getting the work done. Never mind that he is headed to Camp David for the weekend and will be vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard for the third time. Let’s not forget that Obama lives on the golf course, has already made thirty-one campaign stops this year, and a whopping forty-one trips aboard Air Force One. Who’s not getting any work done?

  • Todd,

    Thank God that the Republicans at least took back the House in 2010. If they stick to their guns Obama’s tax increases should, and I say SHOULD, be dead in the water. It’s also time for the inept Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, to wake up. He’s been asleep longer than Rip Van Winkle. This abomination that we refer to as the Tax Code needs to be trashed, burned, then buried at the bottom of the ocean and replaced with a simple flat tax. I don’t currently hear any Republican presidential candidates talking about that, but it’s early yet, so we’ll see.

    Happy Independence Day!

  • Well said Pete, you have a safe and happy 4th too.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
