Obama gave his weekly radio address Saturday. He bragged about how he and Congress signed “the most sweeping economic recovery plan in history.” Sweeping is absolutely correct. He’s going to sweep small businesses into non existence and the American working class right into the unemployment line.
Obama practically bragged that because of what “they did”, companies, large and small can now apply for tax credits and FIND ways to grow, instead of laying people off. I’d like to know how companies are going to FIND these so-called tax credits to help them NOT lay off workers when Obama now intends to RAISE taxes on businesses so that he can cut the deficit. A deficit that he just added a trillion dollars to and is going to add about another trillion by bailing out banks with bad mortgages. He also said because of what “they did” families can now afford to weatherize their homes and millions can send their children to college; because it’s more affordable this week than it was last week.
I have to try to wrap my mind around that. Just last week those families had no money. Heck, millions of families had their kid’s college tuitions tied up in the stock market, which by the way is going to take a major hit with this news. The wealthy and the businesses aren’t going to take Obama’s announcement of higher taxes for THEM sitting down. And who can blame them? So, exactly how are average families going to afford college this week? How is it all of a sudden affordable this week as opposed to last week? How is it magically affordable for millions of families to weatherize their homes? Even with hundreds of millions of dollars from this so-called stimulus bill, the average working class isn’t going to see one penny to “weatherize” their homes. Many aren’t working therefore CAN'T afford to weatherize their homes, apply for a new mortgage or take advantage of the credits offered to purchase a new automobile, let alone send their kids to college. However, there is something in this Socialist Spending Spree for minorities. This package includes all kinds of goodies for those that don’t want to work, can’t afford mortgages and want entitlements.
Oh wait, I stand corrected! Because of what “they did” 95% of all working families, and keep in mind there is a 7.5% and rising unemployment rate, will get a tax cut of… wait are you ready…$65 a month! Yep, that’s right folks. Don’t you run out to the mall all together now, it could cause a traffic jam. Obama ORDERED the treasury department to reduce the amount of taxes withheld from paychecks beginning April 1st. Boy is that an April Fool’s joke if I ever heard one. And the joke’s on us. Obama boasted, “Never before in our history has a tax cut taken effect faster or gone to so many hardworking Americans.” Of course it’s fast, because it’s so gosh darn small and how damn hard is it to tell companies that do payroll to change their tax rate? Not hard; it’s all done by a computer program.
This is just phase one of Obama’s big plan. Phase 2- coming to a neighborhood near you is the “Stabilizing and Repairing our Banking System” Program. Obama wants to get credit flowing again to families and businesses. DUH. It doesn’t takes a rocket scientist to know that this has been the problem all along. This was supposed to have happened with the first bailout last year. I’d still like to know what happened to THAT money! Why hasn’t Obama or anyone in Congress tried to find THAT paper trail? And Obama has the audacity to speak about “fiscal discipline.” What fiscal discipline? He just spent a trillion dollars and is in process of spending another trillion on bailing out banks who lent to deadbeats. Does that sound like a fiscally responsible person to you? But hey, let’s just give these banks another trillion dollars because the first $700 million wasn’t enough and heck, we have no idea where it went anyway. After all, it’s only money…
Obama went on to say, “We can’t solve our housing crisis unless we help people find work so that they can make payments on their homes. We can’t produce shared prosperity without firm rules of the road, and we can’t generate sustained growth without getting our deficits under control.”
Since when does government help FIND work for its citizens? Since when does government produce prosperity? Since when does a Capitalistic government share prosperity? These are issues that the people of American do, and they do it quite well WHEN GOVERNMENT STAYS THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY. Obama wants TOTAL government involvement. He wants to be the Puppet Master and We the People his puppets. He’s pulling the strings to Socialism. It’s time we cut those strings. It’s time we pulled OUR country back from Obama and his Socialistic ideals and Marxist views. We the People are being violated and We the People need to stop this before it’s too late.
