Barack Hussein Obama: â€œIâ€™m A Tax Man!â€
By: Michael John McCrae
The White House, with its 37 million-dollar payroll is asking for more taxes from the wealthy to pay for those who pay no taxes yet benefit from programs of wealth redistribution. Our foreign-born-but-elected-usurper-in-chief calls this â€œshared sacrificeâ€. I donâ€™t see how any of this is â€œsharedâ€ when 10 percent of the nation is required to pony-up 70 percent of governmentâ€™s operating revenue.
Yet, Obama; believing 80 percent of Americans agree with his socialist policies of wealth redistribution thinks the current debt â€œcrisisâ€ cannot be solved without taxing those who are actually productive and creating jobs.
From Obamaâ€™s recent weekly address: â€œThe truth is, you canâ€™t solve our deficit without cutting spending…But you also canâ€™t solve it without asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share â€” or without taking on loopholes that give special interests and big corporations tax breaks that middle-class Americans donâ€™t get.â€
Now I donâ€™t disagree with the elimination of â€œloopholesâ€. After all, General Electric (GE) paid no taxes at all against 5 billion dollars in profits and earned CEO Jeff Immelt a private suite in the White House. But the president is lying. There are many ways to cut deficits without raising tax rates on anyone. Being a socialist, Obama has his particular mind-set which punishes productivity to ensure equality of outcome. I believe this is akin to former President Jimmy Carterâ€™s â€œMisery Indexâ€.
The fact is Obama knows heâ€™s out of money. Heâ€™s been out of money for a very long time. He is the one who has personally placed the debt burden on future generations. No other president in history created trillion-dollar deficits then turned to ask for more debt. The man is an idiot.
Would our illustrious debt-minister take a moment to look at the State of Indiana? Indiana has just formulated a budget that will produce a 1.2 billion dollar surplus without raising taxes. This has upset the Indiana Democrat Party because the budget doesnâ€™t allow Democrats to launder money through their union enablers, but that is not the point. The point is a budget is not only balanced, but placed into surplus based on spending cuts without tax increases.
There are other governors of other states who have become wise to the correlation between taking from the rich and increasing unemployment: the more money taken from job producers, the fewer jobs available. For a business to stay in business they are faced with the choice of paying higher taxes or hiring taxpaying employees. It has been proven that the more working people there are, the greater the tax revenues. This concept is apparently too complex for a socialist to comprehend.
It isnâ€™t that Obama doesnâ€™t completely understand. He just does not care. He needs people to be dependent on government. Dependency breeds votes. He needs welfare recipients, food stamp recipients, home voucher recipients, amnesty recipients, farm subsidy recipients; gay marriage, abortion and â€œCard Checkâ€ hopefuls; without which Democrats get no political support. It might be true there were millions of independent and tens of thousands of moderate Republicans that voted for Obama in 2008, but that was all based in his lies about â€œchangeâ€. Oh, he changed America, but Obamaâ€™s idea of â€œchangeâ€ was to turn a productive superpower into a mirror image of Zimbabwe.
Obama is still trying to hide behind his lies. He has threatened to cut off Social Security and Veterans checks if he doesnâ€™t get his tax increases. I hope the Republican House remains firm in insisting of spending cuts without tax increases. Wisconsin and Indiana are in the lead; showing it can be done. Cuts in government spending and a bold move toward a â€œFair taxâ€ where everyone pays will ensure â€œshared sacrificeâ€ and parity. It will allow businesses to plan expansion, increase innovation and begin hiring again. Senator Rubio is right. We do not need new taxes. We need new tax payers. Obamaâ€™s plans give us too much of one while producing none of the other.
