District of Corruption
December 29, 2012
For the past couple months, I’ve been working with people in both parties – with the help of business leaders and ordinary Americans – to come together around a plan to grow the economy and shrink our deficits. It’s a balanced plan – one that would protect the middle class, cut spending in a responsible way, and ask the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more. And I’ll keep working with anybody who’s serious about getting a comprehensive plan like this done – because it’s the right thing to do for our economic growth. But we’re now at the point where, in just a couple days, the law says that every American’s tax rates are going up. Every American’s paycheck will get a lot smaller. And that would be the wrong thing to do for our economy. It would hurt middle-class families, and it would hurt the businesses that depend on your spending. And Congress can prevent it from happening, if they act now. Leaders in Congress are working on a way to prevent this tax hike on the middle class, and I believe we may be able to reach an agreement that can pass both houses in time. But if an agreement isn’t reached in time, then I’ll urge the Senate to hold an up-or-down vote on a basic package that protects the middle class from an income tax hike, extends vital unemployment insurance for Americans looking for a job, and lays the groundwork for future progress on more economic growth and deficit reduction.
[What I'm not telling you: I'm thinking--now that I'm about to be re-immaculated--this column's title should be changed to something like....
"Lies, Damn Lies and Just Plain Bullshit!"
Such terms as 'balanced plan' and 'fairness' and other skewed titles I can not have tied to me. Any 'balanced plan' must be balanced in my favor, to insure that there'll be more confiscated tax receipts to waste as I've done for the past four years. The term 'fairness' will be fair only in my eyes. The unequal treatment of individual success versus only 'working-for-a-living' goes beyond the pale! Using the federal tax code to punish success, alternatively rewards those who prefer to suckle at the federal 'tit' rather than actually work-for-a-living!
These arguments over the tax code wouldn't be necessary if BOTH houses of Congress as well as my regime had dealt with the issues of unfairness and welfareRATism at the outset of my first term of rule. Or, even dealt with the issue at the same time my regime screwed the American taxpayer to the wall with the last debt ceiling adjustment!
Let's address the debt-ceiling kerfuffle for a moment: remember the last time--back in June, July of 2011--my regime got a huge increase which has since allowed the communists in the current regime to amass an increase of $5,000,000,000,000 (trillions)
in deficit-spending over the past four years of rule!! During those negotiations, the regime promised "tons-and-tons" of spending cuts OVER TEN YEARS! See how stupid the republicRATics are?!? They actually believe that the aforementioned spending cuts will actually happen in the aforementioned 'ten-years!!' The "over-ten-years" is completely UNENFORCEABLE!! What future president--or in the communists' case, what future ruler--will honor a previous commitment that controls the vast majority of then-current spending?!? And yet, those silly republicRATics continue to fall for the phrase!!]
I believe such a proposal could pass both houses with bipartisan majorities – as long as these leaders allow it to come to a vote. If they still want to vote no, and let this tax hike hit the middle class, that’s their prerogative – but they should let everyone vote. That’s the way this is supposed to work. We just can’t afford a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. The economy is growing, but keeping it that way means that the folks you sent to Washington have to do their jobs. The housing market is healing, but that could stall if folks are seeing smaller paychecks. The unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been since 2008, but already, families and businesses are starting to hold back because of the dysfunction they see in Washington.You meet your deadlines and your responsibilities every day. The folks you sent here to serve should do the same. We cannot let Washington politics get in the way of America’s progress. We’ve got to do what it takes to protect the middle class, grow this economy, and move our country forward.
[What I'm not telling you: How stupid can I be?!? Only a complete idiot can listen to 'pinky' reid's rhetoric and believe that both parties can agree on anything, let alone a spending bill inwhich one-or-the-other has to give up something!! Now here's a guy that's outlived his usefulness in the Senate!! Mr Reid lives to put up roadblocks in the path toward fiscal agreement; fiscal agreement that may citizens feel should NEVER happen. Going "over the cliff" will force the current regime to cut spending, albeit in the arena of national defense!!
Members of both parties should face criminal charges!! It's criminal what they're doing with spending bills, spending limits, tax policy, et al, in the Congress. These complete idiots are paid $180,000 a year (with their new pay raise I've signed) to obfuscate each-others' proposals. Nice money to do nothing, right?!?
All this "fiscal cliff" bullshit is just that: BULLSHIT!! It's nothing more than 'political theatre' designed to frighten the general public with some disasterous result of 'going-over' said "cliff." What's gonna happen? A couple of things:
A. The public will finally realize how much they're being screwed with the IRS tax code. What they'll not realize--YET--is the disasterous financial affects of the TWENTY-TWO new or increased taxes as promulgated by obamaKare!!
B. The obama Regime will be forced into spending cuts they've tried to push down the road with that phrase--over ten years!! obamacRATics do not, will not, can not even contemplate even the most minute cuts in spending!! Going 'over-the-cliff' will force them to do just that!!
Each time anything 'financial' comes up, the obama Regime communists can not be trusted!! I know this; I hope you do not realize this!! Due to my less-than-stellar successes during my first rule, I have but four-more-years to destroy the American economy--right down to it's principles--to the point that soviet-style communism will look good!! Then we can talk about my legacy, which should be the American economic destruction as it relates to the impending One-World-Government. Remember that's the objective of The Bilderberg Group; the same folks that have bought me two terms-of-rule!!]
