Democrat Deception

Obama and the rest of the Democrats are currently embarked on a program to vilify the wealthy, the successful business people on whom our economy depends. He is, in effect, saying that all the economic problems we have can be laid at the feet of these folks, and it is the Republican’s fault because they don’t think it is wise to increase taxes on anybody during a weak economy.

Charles Krauthammer explains the fallacy in this idea:

“As a matter of math and logic, however, it’s ridiculous. Obama’s most coveted tax hike — an extra 3 to 4.6 percent for millionaires and billionaires (weirdly defined as individuals making over $200,000) — would have reduced last year’s deficit from $1.29 trillion to $1.21 trillion. Nearly a rounding error. The oil-drilling breaks cover less than half a day’s federal spending. You could collect Obama’s favorite tax loophole — depreciation for corporate jets — for 100 years and it wouldn’t cover one month of Medicare, whose insolvency is a function of increased longevity, expensive new technology, and wasteful defensive medicine caused by an insane malpractice system.”

Obama has no record to stand on, other than one of failure and damage to the economy – to real people – in the service of his ideologies. A perfect example of this is the number of real people’s jobs lost due to the moratorium on drilling in the gulf, and the pending shut-down of many, many coal fired power plants around the nation. Many, many thousands of perfectly good jobs lost directly to his environmental agenda – unnecessarily. [1]

Obama, as he always has, obfuscates and lies to the public to move his goals forward. After all, the truth is that his policies have done worse than fail – they have damaged our economy in ways from which we may never recover. But he’ll lie without batting an eye, if it will keep him in power. And so will many of the Democrats (Biden, Schumer and Pelosi come to mind).

And all those “occupy wall street” protestors believe Obama – except for the ones that are drawing a salary to be there. What a bunch of tools!
