Obama’s massive middle class tax hike

March 16, 2009

Our Dear Leader is planning “the largest middle-class tax increase in history.”
This is a plan to tax medical benefits. As part of our Dear Leader‘s plan to socialize the medical industry here in the United States. Step one: fleece those with medical insurance to raise money to screw them.

The hypocrisy is pretty thick:

In television advertisements last fall, Mr. Obama criticized his Republican rival for the presidency, Senator John McCain of Arizona, for proposing to tax all employer-provided health benefits. The benefits have long been tax-free, regardless of how generous they are or how much an employee earns. The advertisements did not point out that Mr. McCain, in exchange, wanted to give all families a tax credit to subsidize the purchase of coverage.

Goals & Priorities

March 9, 2009

I wrote before that I think that our Dear Leader and his team are in over their heads in regards to the economy. They aren’t sure of what to do and the market is responding to that lack of confidence.

Here is another theory, Team BO just really doesn’t care about the economy. It will recover on its on over time and they have other priorities. That is what Kevin McCullough is claiming and he makes sense.

President Obama knows the history of recessions and how Americans get out of them. He knows, for example, that if he gave back to the American family in just pure cash handouts what he is instead planning on taxing them (with interest) in the days to come, that the number would loom between $25,000-$65,000 per family, for every family in America.

But pretending to be doing something about the problem is only half the strategy for Obama. He truly intends to see socialized health care, and European styled labor agreements become reality in America. He knows the consequences of doing such things, he’s seen all the projections and what the outcomes would be, but he’s doing it anyway.

This actually fits in with his Chief of Staff’s often quoted mantra: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” The economic crisis is being used by the far left extremists to create an atmosphere of fear and shove through socialist policies under the guise of “helping the economy.”

If our Dear Leader and the democrats where interested in helping the economy, they would focus on job creation by small businesses. Most jobs in this country are in small businesses and unlike “shovel ready” construction projects, those jobs will still be there when the taxpayer funding runs out. Instead, the policies of our Dear Leader and the democrats are designed to hurt small businesses.

Ed Morrissey has his own thoughts on Kevin McCullough’s theory:

Obama is a typical liberal ideologue who thinks that America has failed in the sense of equality of result. He sees inequities and thinks that government exists to eliminate all of them. My guess is that he’s aiming much more for France than Venezuela, but neither are particularly palatable destinations for a national economy. Obama seems to see our entire 230-year history as a long crisis that his statist policies will end.

What we’re seeing is the policy playbook of the Left. We predicted this all along, while the media hailed Obama as some sort of centrist without a shred of evidence for that. He has a long history, though, of alliances with the Left, and it comes as no shock that Obama has shown his true colors in the first days of his presidency. Massive government spending, reductions in defense, and preparation for nationalization of health care, banks, and other private industries fit well as a pattern with those policy goals.

Bottom line. Obama‘s goal is not to fix the economy, but to fundamentally change the role of government in the United States of America.

BHO boosts sales of Atlas Shrugged

February 27, 2009

Since our Dear Leader has taken office and made his socialist agenda clear, sales of Ayn Rand’s classic Atlas Shrugged have more than tripled.

Keep in mind that BHO won with a razor thin margin in an election with an average turnout. He stirred up his base, a good chunk of the right of center base stayed home and moderates in the middle seemed to have bought into the message of “change” not just being different than G.W. Bush, but somehow would be better. Now they are finding out that “change” can be worse, much worse. The democrats policies will stir up the conservative Republican base better than McCain could and alienate the moderate center. The campaign for the 2010 (and 2012) elections have alreadys started.

Meanwhile in Chicago…

February 20, 2009

For once, not a story of democrat corruption in Chicago. I know a bit of surprise, since corrupt democrats are in the vast majority in Chicago.
Take a look at this video, and pay attention to the reactions of the people working in the Chicago Stock Exchange.

The reality is that the market has been dropping each time our Dear Leader and the democrats in Chicago announce another one of their “Five Year Plans.”

Update: The DOW is down another 100 points on “Hope and Change”, or as it is now known,”Hype and Crappola.”

What Would a Reagan/Obama Debate Sound Like?

February 13, 2009

The differences are stark, President Reagan’s love of Freedom vs. our Dear Leader‘s open statements of socialism.

CBO on recession and recovery

February 9, 2009

The nonpartisian Congressional Budget Office has release new data on the current recession.

CBO anticipates that the current recession, which started in December 2007, will last until the second half of 2009, making it the longest recession since World War II. (The longest such recessions otherwise, the 1973–1974 and 1981–1982 recessions, both lasted 16 months. If the current recession were to continue beyond midyear, it would last at least 19 months.) It could also be the deepest recession during the postwar period: By CBO’s estimates, economic output over the next two years will average 6.8 percent below its potential—that is, the level of output that would be produced if the economy’s resources were fully employed (see Figure 1). This ecession, however, may not result in the highest unemployment rate. That rate, in CBO’s forecast, rises to 9.2 percent by early 2010 (up from a low of 4.4 percent at the end of 2006) but is still below the 10.8 percent rate seen near the end of the 1981–1982 recession.

Note that this is without the federal government increasing the debt by another Trillion plus dollars.

The CBO has some other statements about the massive spending package our Dear Leader and the democrats in congress are calling a “stimulus” package that we’ll cover later on.

Let’s review some basic facts about the “stimulus” package. The goal, according to the democrats who claim that “something” must be done and done quickly, is to borrow nearly a trillion dollars, filter it through the federal government, losing 30 cents on the dollar in administrative overhead if we’re lucky, and pump that money into the economy in order to get the economic engine running smoothly again.

Ok, even you buy into that 100% (I’m not saying you should, but for this exercise, we’ll let it slide), you have to admit that the money isn’t going to do one damn bit of good until it is actually spent.

Which brings us to the findings of Harvard economics professor Greg Mankiw.

A mere 8% of stimulus is to be spent in 2009. 59%, nearly two thirds, is not to be spent until after 2010. If it is so important to pass this bill Right Now, No Questions Asked!, or else he economy will get even worse, why is only 8% of the nearly one Trillion dollars being spend in 2009? Why is nearly two thirds not going to be spent until after 2010?

Let’s get back to that most recent CBO announcement. The recession will probably end in the later half of 2009 even if the Federal Government doesn’t do anything!

So, as informed and educated citizens of this Republic, we had to ask why the democrats are so keen to push through nearly a trillion dollars in mostly government spending if most of it clearly has nothing to do with the current economic climate?

Ok, that isn’t really honest, the democrats so called “stimulus” bill will probably do more harm to economy in the long term than it will do any good in the short term, again, according to the non partisan Congressional Budget Office.

One of the factors that got us into this mess was uncontrolled government spending. Doing more of the same probably isn’t a good idea. If the democrats, including President Obama, wanted to get money into the economy quickly, in order to help American citizens, they would concentrate on transfer payments to the states, and tax cuts. Good old JFK style, across the board tax cuts, and targeted cuts to stimulate business, especially small business growth. Once they get the economic engine revved up again, the average American probably won’t be so set against increased government spending.

HT to Gateway Pundit for the latest CBO report.

Update: US News & World Report has picked up on this story.

I question the timing

January 29, 2009

As I pointed out, about two thirds of the democrats so called “stimulus” package will not be spent until after 2010.

Now our Dear Leader is telling us over and over again that we need to act quickly on this crisis, so quickly that the members of congress can’t read the nearly 500 page bill packed with liberal pork he wants them to vote on right away.

If we must act fast, why is only 8% of that nearly one trillion dollars being spent in 2009?

The answer is clear. The timing is based on politics, not the needs of the American people. The democrats just won an election, they don’t see any great need to spend money right away. In fact, the worse things get for average Americans, the better it is for democrats.

Spending kicks up in 2010, just in time for the 2010 mid term elections. Incumbent democrats can point to all the pork in the bill going to their districts as a reason why they should reelected. The bulk of the money starts getting spent in 2011 and 2012. Just in time for our Dear Leader to claim credit while his reelection campaign is in full swing.

So, yes, I question the timing of the democrats pork bill.

Let’s take a look at Team BHO

January 16, 2009

The Leather Penguin wonders if any were vetted at all. The answer is of course they were, but the people doing the vetting had a different set of values than Leather Penguin, and a lot of other Americans.

Let’s look at some those picks.

New Mexico Gov. Richardson, BHO’s pick for Commerce Sec. withdrew his name after his involvement in a “pay for play” scandal, just like the one the Illinois Gov (another democrat) is being impeached over, was noticed by people other than MSM “reporters who wanted to ignore it. Richardson’s involvement wasn’t new news. The far left liberal democrats on BHO’s team knew about this, and they thought it was not a serious enough issue to stop Gov. Richardson’s selection.

Carol M. Browner, BHO’s pick as his “global warming czar”, is a out and out Socialist. A fact that the left is trying to erase from the public record.
Browner was “listed as one of 14 leaders of a socialist group’s Commission for a Sustainable World Society, which calls for “global governance” and says rich countries must shrink their economies to address climate change.” That listing is now only found on Internet archives of that groups site. Browner has also drunk deeply from the AGW Kool-Aid (TM), having served on Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection.

As I have said before, I respect environmentalists, but have utter contempt for Watermelons (Thin layer of Green on the outside, Red to the core on the inside). Browner is a hardcore Watermelon.

BHO’s pick for treasury secretary, Timothy Geithner, the so-called “smartest guy in the room”, claims he didn’t know he had to pay self-employment taxes during the years he worked at the International Monetary Fund, but he did know enough to apply for, and receive, payment from the IMF as restitution for taxes he didn’t pay. This is the guy who is going to be in charge of the IRS. This obvious bit of corruption was obviously A-OK with the Team BHO vetting team.

So let us review. The following is perfectly acceptable to Team Obama. Illegal “Pay for play” politics, Socialist policies that killed 100 million citizens of Socialist countries in the 20th Century, and flat out tax cheats.

The next four years should be interesting.
