Obama thinks that he is as slick as a clay road in the rain. His only problem: Any man or woman with eyes can see right through the mud that he calls transparency.
Twisted words with no foundation in truth has now become an everyday practice within his administration. Watch this hand but don’t pay any attention to the hand behind his back — that’s what he wants this entire nation to do. I have news for him: His house of cards is falling apart, from within.
Members of his own party are now taking the time to step back and look at the power this man is building out of lies. He will have the American people on their knees before the rest of the world if we do not take this power away from him with our votes.
2014 will be the time to strike out at his party and his administration. These votes will have to come from all the parties — yes, I said all the parties. First, we will see the men and women of his own party open up their eyes and ears. This has already started with some Democrats in the Senate. This man is asking our country to shoulder to many burdens that we cannot afford. These burdens come in many forms — one being the southern border. The problem can be fixed, but it will never be fixed by throwing money at it.
The week of July 7, he asked for $3.7 billion to take care of the illegal aliens coming across the border.
Just one more lie to add to the host of lies he has told to the American taxpayer. It will not be $3.7 billion; it will be more than $10 billion when it is said and done. When have we ever been told correct numbers by any administration? I’ll tell you: Never.
How will all of this be paid for? That’s easy to understand also: Your overtaxed dollar. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made the statement a while back that the government is not broke, we just don’t have the money. What she meant by that statement was this: We can get it through new taxes.
I am fed up with people like this egotistical women. I am also fed up with being taxed to death, just like you, the working man and woman. Again, it does not matter which party you belong to, you, like myself, pay way too many taxes. We do not need any new taxes to fund anything. Some people need to learn to live within their means.
Before I really looked into taxes and what we pay, I only though about, income (state and federal) taxes, property, income interest, and gas taxes, and that was about it. Then the floodgates opened up. The number of separate taxes that we pay is truly unbelievable. I do not have room to list them all, but take the time as I did to look them all up — it will make you sick.
I have no problem paying my taxes, for I know these taxes are needed to run this country. With that said, I do not want to see this country run into the ground because of these taxes. Taxes that are wasted on programs that are endless money pits are simply outrageous and a disgrace on this administration that knows no limits. It’s easy to be generous and spend other people’s money — that’s what politicians do.
Zero accountability to the people by these politicians leads me to believe that they think they have godlike powers. There is only one God and he is not back on earth yet, but his day will come soon.
What our taxes are wasted on is a crime against all taxpaying Americans.
Our overtaxed dollar — and what it is wasted on — is a scandal of the highest magnitude
I dare General Motors to say that it has paid back the American peopl, what it owed. That’s a lie, backed by this administration.
With the help of this administration, General Motors was bailed out with our tax dollars. But you tell me how this administration with a straight face can tell the American people that we were paid back.
It is in the public record that we the people lost more than $10 billion of our tax dollars on this loan. As far as I am concerned , Obama co-signed on this loan. He is the one who needs to pay it back, along with the members of his Senate.
This administration should be accountable to the people and there should be no loss at all on this loan. If $10 billion was not paid back, then it’s simple. We just take back this $10 billion in stock options.
As we watch Detroit fall, we watch the nation fall. Detroit spent money it did not have it to spend. This administration is doing the same thing.
I watched a Barbara Walters interview with Obama. Walters asked if it bothered him that the people for the most part ( 60 percent) did not trust him. His response was: They re-elected me. He was also asked about the shovel-ready jobs that his stimulus was spent on, almost $1 trillion. He responded with a smile and laughed: I guess I was wrong.
My response is he would have never been re-elected if the American people had known the truth about the Affordable Care Act and the unemployment numbers that were falsified. There would not have been a second term.
You cannot ask the government to be infallible, but you can ask it to be accountable and truthful to the people that it governs. A truthful and accountable government is what the people want. I push for civility and tolerance of all people. It does not happen all the time, but what can you expect out of human beings? We are after all, only human.
