Boehner reminds me of Obama – in fact they’re more than “kissin cussins.” Any time their mouth opens, you can expect smooth talkin’ rhetoric that is laced with promises and wrapped up in a pretty box plum full of lies with a big bow and smiley face.
Boehner and Obama wrote the script on the debt ceiling resolution; they set the stage for Americans during their last little golf game. What we will hear in the next few days will be scare tactics by Obama, Timothy Geithner, Ben Bernanke and some of the Democrats.
Obama will whine that those businesses netting over 250,000 should be penalized for working hard and keeping our economy above water even during a recession – so he’ll keep playing the same old tune, “Raise their taxes, and Raise their taxes.”
Bernanke and Geithner will spread some doom and gloom about our credit rating and pretty much tell us like Chicken Little that the sky will darn sure fall if we don’t raise the “debt ceiling.” They lie!
Republicans will smack their lips, make faces, shake their heads and tell us they just had to drop their original agreement of 4 trillion in debt reduction to maybe 1 or 2 trillion. Maybe, in all actuality it will shrivel down to a few million just like they did the last time when they promised billions in budget cuts.
Brace yourselves Americans Boehner and Republicans are doing exactly what I’ve been saying for weeks – they’re playing into Obama’s hand one more time.
Here’s what Boehner said Saturday PM, “Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes.”
But here’s the real deal – our fair haired wobbly kneed politicians should be doing what millions of Americans are doing. It’s called balancing the budget – you list all priorities such as military, National Deficit, Medicare, and Medicaid and pay that first. Second step is you take the money left over and carefully prioritize bills according to necessity and continue paying them. Thirdly, you ruthlessly cut out all frivolous expenditures and put them on the ancient history shelves for the elves.
The means putting a freeze on EPA, quite funding NPR, Media Matters, Planned Parenthood to name a few and there are tons more that we should not be funding.
You remove Obama’s employee raises and perks since 2009. Put his Czars on a 20 hour work week; let them figure out how to pay for health insurance, car allowance and lunches.
We have a pot full of politicians in the White House who aren’t capable of wiping their Fannies by themselves. We should send a few good ole boys and girls to the White House for a short interim to show them how one balances a budget.
We can’t buy our way out of a recession, so spending more money should not even be a consideration. Tax hikes on businesses will mean more layoffs, higher unemployment and no business growth – so that’s not an option either.
Printing more phony money will only lead to higher inflation, which we’re all starting to feel from Bernanke’s last printing spree. Politicians are treating our crisis like a Roman holiday – they’re all worried about feasting and filling their bellies. Regardless of what they say, there’s no bloodletting going on…
May God Bless America
