It is past time Barack Obama be held accountable for his intentionally irresponsible fiscal policies that are guaranteed to take us into national bankruptcy. The problem is that so many people who trust him, inexplicably, look no further than his disingenuous statements and the liberal media’s slanted reporting, and the Republican Party leadership simply cannot seem to get its message across.
Our financial problems are overwhelmingly a result of excess spending, not of insufficient tax revenues, Our $16 trillion national debt and our $100 trillion of unfunded liabilities are going to destroy this nation in relatively short order if we don’t take drastic remedial action. Yet Obama’s plan is to increase taxes on the highest 2 percent of income earners while refusing to make significant reductions in discretionary spending or to restructure entitlements.
To keep his shell game going, he has to divert the people’s attention from the real culprit, spending, and toward blaming and demonizing the rich, and the red herrings of “balanced approach,” “loopholes” and “revenues. “Obama is the one who won’t agree to a “balanced” approach; he’s ignoring spending and entitlements. When he calls tax increases “revenues,” he is implying that increasing rates and eliminating deductions for a small fraction of income earners is going to appreciably raise revenues and help solve our problem. It won’t. When he refers to legitimate tax deductions as “loopholes,” he is further defrauding the public into believing that these high-income earners are somehow cheating by availing themselves of deductions the law reasonably allows.
Speaker John Boehner must quit adopting that same misleading terminology and conceding, in effect, that the “wealthy” are undertaxed. He is not doing himself or the nation any good by playing into Obama’s hands and allowing him to control the language and the narrative. Boehner needs to turn the tables on Obama and go into attack mode himself. There is no other way to deal with this destructive bully. Boehner must sprint to the national microphone and tell the American people that Obama is being unreasonable, reckless and uncompromising. Obama is the one who won’t address the only problem that matters: spending. He won’t budge from his intolerable demands that Republicans raise rates on the “wealthy” in exchange for his vague promise of implementing spending “cuts” in the future, his steadfast refusal to put entitlement reform on the table, and his demand that he be given unilateral authority to raise the budget ceiling at his whim. Boehner must point out that Republicans have gone out of their way to compromise — way too far out of their way — by agreeing to eliminate deductions for the highest income earners to the tune of $800 billion, a figure Obama himself demanded not long ago. But in a good faith effort to secure an agreement from Obama to greatly reduce spending and restructure entitlement programs. The GOP majority did not get re-elected to roll over to Obama’s disastrous policies. They have a moral, legal and constitutional duty to resist Obama’s path of destruction with every fiber of their beings. Because Obama will not yield, and Republicans will be blamed for it. Call him out in plain terms on what he’s doing, and show he has never been and is not now serious about averting a national financial meltdown. Source—gop usa, dave limbaugh
