President Barack Obama reminds us of a “broken record;” not the great achievement kind, but rather the [scratched] vinyl kind of yesteryear, where the needle would get stuck in a groove and annoyingly play the same verse, over and over again…as if there was nothing else of value on the remaining record.
Today, while giving a teleprompter-aided press conference from the East Room of the White House, Barack Obama said he wants to break through the “stalemate” over taxes in Congress, according to a FOXNews article today.
He argued that sustaining the current tax rates for top earners puts too big a hole in the federal budget, saying “we can’t afford to keep that up.”
Instead, he once again called on Congress to extend those rates for one year, but just for families earning less than $250,000; failing to do so, he said, would be a “blow” to families and a “drag” on the economy.
“We don’t need more top-down economics,” Obama said. “We need policies that grow and strengthen the middle class.”
Disappointingly, last time the issue was brought before the Congress, it was estimated to add just $85 billion per year in tax revenue–enough to run the federal government for a mere eight days.
And shamefully for Obama, even though this measure was expectedly defeated in the Republican-dominated House–it could not pass in the Democrat-led Senate either, which he neglected to mention, before blaming this stalemate squarely on … “the other party.”
The real problem for Barack Obama is that his lack of any knowledge about capitalism, which is showing in his continuing to promote this totally “class warfare” oriented bill, and he knows that his growing political impotence cannot even overcome the push-back amongst his own party members.
Make no mistake, Congressional Democrats still remember the 85 faithful who were “sacrificed” during the November 2010 mid-term election blitzkrieg, because they chose to ride the president’s Obamacare train–without a single Republican on board.
For the wise among them, this is deja vu.
The proof of their wisdom that Barack Obama is careening off the rails is simple.
If by retaining the so-called “Bush tax cut rates” for the “middle class” only, for whom he proudly barked … “I have cut taxes 18 times for small business owners since being in office,” then why have we suffered stubbornly high unemployment and a stagnant to declining economy over these past four years?
Like labor unions, President Barack Obama and most Democrats have outlived their usefulness and have become a drain on the economy and moral fiber of America, which is born out by a poll released last Thursday, as reported by Sheldon Alberts’ today in “The Hill.”
A new poll for The Hill, conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, found 56 percent of likely voters believe Obama’s first term has transformed the nation in a negative way, compared to 35 percent who believe the country has changed for the better under his leadership.
That feeling is strongest among Republicans, at 91 percent, while strikingly, 1-in-5 Democrats agree, while centrists are evenly split with 40 percent saying the United States is better today and 42 percent saying it is worse off.
Obviously Obama and the Democrats have finally shocked and harmed enough “Likely” voters into recognizing that their Liberal dream bares more of a resemblance to a biblical-scale plague, as fully 77 percent believe that the choice between Obama and Romney in November is “Very Important for the Future of the Country,” according to the second to last question in the poll.
So, as a majority of Americans believe Barack Obama is destroying our nation, come November it will be time to reclaim our government, and as our country was founded on Christian doctrines, and as 87 percent of Americans are Christians–it is time to return God to the center of our country where He belongs.
