Good ol' Harry Reid turned down the opportunity to vote on the obama proposal when McConnell offered to put it on the floor early in the week. Reid knew it wouldn't pass as is, balked and declined, and of course there was no press coverage to speak of about the offer. But when Reid called the bluff by McConnell when he made a similar offer regarding the budget ceiling the press couldn't get enough.
The story behind this isn't that Reid learned to play poker over the past few days. It isn't the revelation that the media is overly bias and has their own agenda. The story is what obama's objective is.
Over the past 5 years obama has had the opportunity to create a budget that would be palatable for both sides, yet every year he presents a proposal that neither side could swallow. Is this due to his ignorance of the United States financial matters? Is it his arrogant 'my way or the highway' attitude? Is it his socialist stance on all issues? Or is he just playing dumb. Is obama the scarecrow, the man behind the curtain, or playing the role of both?
It is a combination of all of the above which leads to obama's audacious maneuvers. With the US debt growing exponentially and underfunded social programs that are already on the books facing bankruptcy, obama's only focus appears to be overtaxing the 'wealthier' of our country. It has already been proven that this wouldn't make a dent in the budget issues the US faces and would most likely COST the US in job growth and tax base.
obama likes to use the expression that the math doesn't add up. Well, let me ask you, if you have $10 in income and spend $15, ask your boss for a raise to $12 and increase your spending to $20, does that add up?
Pundits of the 'tax the rich' strategy have openly admitted to this, and have stated that it is a 'feel good' strategy. Will it feel so good when you have to get up and go to work when you're 80 years old, if you're lucky enough to have a job? Consider the beginning of the movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". Multiple generations under one roof, in one room. That's obama's America.
Don't blame anyone else for the state of the US Government and its debt. obama has had four years to fix it and the anvil of failure should land squarely on HIS head.
What about those from both sides that don't agree with everything obama has on the table? Well, with the recent signing of the 'whistle blower' law at the end of last month, don't be surprised to see them start to cave or get indicted, or quietly 'retire'.
While obama's signing of this legislation left many scratching their heads, there may be a more sinister reality as to why he did so. The establishment of obama's own 'gestapo'. I use this word in an effort to scare you into considering the very real possibility that obama will use his minions to flush out, corrupt and expose, or simply spy and report on all those who don't share his 'point of view.'
Everything that obama has done, hasn't done or is trying to do leads to one final destination. Complete power to control everything and anything that happens within the boarders of the United States. And I don't think that it will end there.
