BARACK OBAMA PROPOSES MORE TAX AND SPEND INSANITY

|| By FITSNEWS || Less than two months after getting most of what he wanted from congressional “Republicans” for the rest of the current fiscal year, U.S. president Barack Obama is upping the ante for the fiscal year beginning in September – submitting a $4 trillion budget proposal that represents the very worst of Washington D.C.’s bipartisan “tax and spend” fiscal liberalism.

Obama’s blueprint – built on massive tax increases ($1.44 trillion over the coming decade) and the revocation of previously agreed upon spending restraints – represents a 6.4 percent expansion of government from the current budget.

Wait … are Americans’ incomes growing by 6.4 percent?  Um, no … they’re not (thanks in no small part to Obama’s signature socialized medicine law).

Obama claimed his budget was all about giving “middle-class families the security they need to get ahead in the new economy.”  But as we’ve reported on numerous previous occasions, his policies (and the GOP’s ongoing accommodation of them) are absolutely destroying the middle class.

“(Obama’s budget) makes no pretense of ever reaching balance, and is an extension of his stated desire to fundamentally transform America by further expanding the size and scope of the federal government,” said Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government (ALG).

Exactly … that’s it exactly.

Federal spending has grown 63 percent faster than inflation over the last twenty years – including an explosion in deficit spending during the recent recession.  After posting modest surpluses as recently as 2001, “Republican” and Democratic presidents and Congresses have exploded the debt – including ringing up annual deficits in excess of $1 trillion from 2009-12.

Now Obama wants to spill even more red ink … while decrying the so-called “mindless austerity” of previously agreed upon budget cuts that never materialized.  Cuts he agreed to.

“The President has waved the white flag in the fight to restore fiscal sanity to the federal government,” Manning added.

America needs – and its taxpayers deserve – a budget that prioritizes core government functions, eliminates unnecessary bureaucracies, ends corporate cronyism, addresses unsustainable entitlement spending, foregoes unnecessary global interventionism and defunds onerous regulations and economically crippling programs.

Obama’s budget does absolutely none of those things … but don’t expect “Republicans” to do much in in the way of fighting it.  Or offering a free market alternative.

Ask Bill Clinton…he was the one who first indicated Hussein had WMDs …and it may be WHY a Bi-Partisan House and Senate voted to go into Iraq, that Clinton was already bombing…Dumb@$$…

yeah.. knew.

GrandTango February 3, 2015 at 2:05 pm

We telegraphed that invasion for years, to appease the media and the Radical Liberals. How many resolutions did Clinton and the UN isuue, while Clinton was Bombing Iraq…

Hussein moved almost all of the WMDs out. That said: The NYT reported – recently -that there was still nerve Agents in Iraq, and some US troops were exposed to it…They were trying to blame the US for putting “soldiers” in harm’s way…

Educate yourself. You’re a head-up-your @$$ liberal..I don’t care that you are an IGNORANT F*#k…I just cannot stand you Stupid Son-of-Bit#hes spreading you institutional-level lies, Ignorant F*#ks, like you, go out and vote based on the Myths you feed them…

Stand by for the head explosion; 3,2,1 BOOM. BTW, I heard they moved that underground Russian tank battalion out from Detroit too. Pass it on.

Rakkasan February 3, 2015 at 4:42 pm

UPDATE ALERT!!! ISIS has taken over the abandoned underground facility that formerly housed a Russian tank battalion. The facility is said to include a complex tunneling system which included a 200 bed hospital, morgue, officer’s quarters, and a Burger King.

On the flip side though, after listening to what turned out to be an Iranian disinformation agent known as “Curveball” the guy Bush based almost his entire argument to invade Iraq, it turned Iran into the sole major power in the area with only Saudi Arabia remaining as a major power in the area. Bang up job. Bang up job! Mission Accomplished!!
Was Saddam connected to 9/11 in any manner..No. Hell even Shrub states this as fact now..Was he actively planning any attacks on the US..No. but hey we did make Iran stronger so bang up job.

Austerity is the third rail of Politics. Both Parties are going to ride this all the way down to the crash impact and then start pointing fingers. Look at Greece for our future.

Yeah look at Greece. As long as there is someone willing to finance our debt, we don’t have a problem. As long as interest on the debt doesn’t swallow up the entire budget were are sitting pretty.
The only alternative for Greece is to default on the debt.

One could argue that their default, while being painful for a few years, has the potential to “end the misery” of sustained devaluation and endless interest payments….assuming the Greek gov’t actually did something they haven’t done for 1000 years and started behaving fiscally responsible.

No matter, one key bankster(and Obama) said that a 50% haircut would be “ok”…the banksters are doing to do whatever it takes to keep the game in play.

It’ll be small time bond holders that get screwed short term, a la the GM fiasco.

Your list of what America needs is fine, until you ask for details. What constitutes “core”, “necessary”, “unsustainable”, “onerous”, and “crippling”? That’s where we go our separate ways with our tribes. As long as we maintain tribal “absolutism”, e.g. party purity and litmus tests, all we will come up with is what is known as “ultra solutions”: simultaneously solve the problem AND ensure failure

Hmm…I see that FITS finds a way to BASH Republicans, as is his pattern. But I don’t see any mention that Obama is a DEMOCRAT….

In fact, the attack on Republicans is 5 -to-1…

And FITS’ timing is also suspect…

This MoFo was assailing Mitt Romney as the Anti-Christ pre-Nov. 2012…while soft-peddling Obama, when we KNEW what a Disaster Obama had been for the economy, common decency, freedom and national security…

Want to know how Obama gets away w/ it?…and the GOP is attacked at every angle for trying to stand up for the American people…???

Look directly at FITS, and the corrupt and dishonest pieces of $#!t in the media, like him….and you have your answer….

As long as they passively lie to you about WHO did it…there are a lot of Dumb@$$ people, who will hate the GOP, and vote for Democrats…even though the Democrats have F*#ked up this country worse than any before them…

And Creeps like FITS aid and abet that raping of our nation by ALL that they purposely leave out about the true villains against us…

Probably the 1%’s income, so if we tax them, it all works out, right?
