“We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year — it’s done, we don’t need to do it,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)
Here we go again, and again, and again . Barack Insane Obama is taking his Campaign Budget tour fast and furiously. It’s just a repeat performance of EVERY speech he has given thus far. Lets not forget that there has been NO BUDGET for over 1,000 DAYS now! What do you say we get (forensic) on his “speech”, shall we?!
BARACK OBAMA: “First of all, I think that…the whole administration here is doing a great job…”
( A “great job”?! Obama attacks the 1st Amend (Catholic hospitals, and our RIGHT TO CHOOSE as far as the Obamacare mandate; Fast n Furious; our Credit Rating was dropped to “AA” — and may go down even further; the drilling “Moratoriums”/ and the halt on the Keystone Pipeline; the jobless numbers are NOT where he PROMISED they’d be by the end of nis first term; the U.S. Debt is up by almost $5 TRILLION to over $15T and climbing; gas to go up to $5/gal by this summer; Dodd/Frank;
“[T]he CMS report has some troubling news about health care spending:
[O]ne portion of health spending has substantially grown, and that’s the federal government’s share of the spending. According to the CMS report, the government’s percentage of spending has risen to 29 percent, an increase from 23 percent in 2007. The report explains that the increase is due to “Medicaid enrollment increasing rapidly and the federal government paying a higher share of Medicaid benefits through enhanced federal matching rates, as mandated by the Recovery Act.” “ (*1);
“Residential real estate prices fell more than forecast in November, showing distressed properties are hampering improvement in the U.S. housing market.
The S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities declined 3.7 percent from November 2010 after decreasing 3.4 percent in the year ended in October” … Another wave of foreclosures threatens to keep the pressure on prices and delay recovery in the industry that precipitated the last recession, underscoring the Federal Reserve’s view that housing “remains depressed.” (*2)…
Now I hear that ‘ WH Advisor Gene Sperling says that Obama’s latest budget is a democratic budget and that Obama wants a global minimum tax.’ (*3) ).
And I haven’t even hit the ACTUAL SPEECH yet! But, lets be honest, do I really have to?! It just goes DOWN HILL from there anyway! Why should we suffer through the SAME SPEECH over, and over, and over again!
