Obama decided after making the deal that kept the government from shutting down, that he would go back on his word and keep the 4 czars that he agreed to get rid of, so it is nakedly apparent his word can’t be trusted any further than you can spit.
Now pour Harry (the curmudgeon in chief) Reid into the mix and it begins to get interesting given his penchant for trying to scare seniors and all.
“What we cut will always be more important than how much we cut. That is because our nation’s budget is a representation of our values,” so said Mr. Reid on the Senate floor last week.
“We value women’s health. But Republicans tried to use the budget to make it harder for women to get contraception that reduces abortion and tried to slash funding for cancer research,” he said. “We stayed true to our values, and we didn’t let them.” Mr. Reid you have no values beyond feathering your own nest at the expense of the people.
“We also value our seniors’ ability to support themselves. But Republicans tried to use the budget to slash the Social Security Administration and reopen the doughnut hole, which would have sent seniors’ prescription drug bills skyrocketing,” he said. “We stayed true to our values and we didn’t let them.”
Are those the same values that have denied us a cost of living raise on our social security checks soon to be three years in a row, while you all got your COLA (again at OUR expense).
At this point I just can’t let it go any further without interjecting the facts here Mr. Reid. You people should have had a budget way last October (when you had majorities in both houses and the White House) but you didn’t, you and your crew are the most fiscally irresponsible bunch it has ever been my displeasure to gaze upon, and I am not too in love with the other side of the isle either.
The country is expected to hit its’ current $14.3 trillion debt limit by the middle of May. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner has said he could take emergency measures to buy some time until the middle of July, but if no action were taken by then, the government would fall into default. Mind you this is the same guy who cheated on his income taxes and is running our treasury.
When Geithner appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet The Press” he said that the Republicans told President Obama in a White House meeting last Wednesday that they would go along with a higher limit in return for cuts elsewhere as an offset.
The message to Speaker Boehner and his crew is plain and in the clear, Raise the Debt ceiling and you people will be out of a job and damned quick.
That would only be feeding the habit, giving a cash fix to all of the spending junkies in Washington.
How about you people taking a pay cut for a change instead of always laying it on our back.
You people make $180K per year cut yourself back to $90K.
Get us out of the UN immediately, and stop the Foreign-Aid program, immediately defund OBAMACARE, Planned Parenthood and National Public Radio.
We have the ability to live within our means and if you people don’t want to go along with that we will see you at the ballot box with your pink slip.
Our national AAA credit rating is on the line thanks to you incompetent boobs, you are worse than little kids on the playground you all need to grow up.
Shame on the gullible American people for electing you clowns over and over and over again, all that tells me is folks are gullible and you people can lie your butt off.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
