Fellow Americans. I come before you today with a foolproof plan to reduce the deficit. Michelle will fire 1/2 of her maids in attendance, I will only play 2 rounds of golf per week and we both promise to not take anymore vacations.

Why not bring James Carville onboard, Mr. Obama? Ask the man if would consider a spot on your re-election team? Always rooting for ya President Obama! All these idiots that just now voted for the GOP, they'll be regretting their vote up the road. What happened in last election cycle? These idiots NEVER learn! Shame on you New Yorkers, you are no longer the shining beacon of our country.

The White House also has said that Obama will no longer offer any leadership proposals to reduce long-term spending in Social Security, even though Obama recently had suggested to Boehner reducing annual cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security recipients.

LOL!

Now Democrats are waiting to see what Obama proposes to do with Medicare, the government health care program for older people that Obama CUT $500 Billion to pay for the debt laden Obamacare.


LOL!



All tha Ass A Hole Obama is proposing is to RAISE TAXES!


What's funnier it that the amount Obama claims OVER 10 Years is Equal to the AMOUNT OF UNPATRIOTIC DEBT OBAMA ADDED TO THE NATIONAL DEBT in 1 Year!





IMPEACH!

National debt has increased $4 trillion under Obama




August 22, 2011
By Mark Knoller



The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama's watch.

The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion.

It's the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.

The national debt increased $4.9 trillion during the eight-year presidency of George W. Bush. The debt now is rising at a pace to surpass that amount during Mr. Obama's four-year term.

Listen to the asswhipe Obama's excuses:

Mr. Obama blames policies inherited from his predecessor's administration for his soaring $4 Trillion debt.

He singles out:

"two wars we didn't pay for"
"a prescription drug program for seniors...we didn't pay for."
"tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 that were not paid for."




1 - Those would be the same Wars Obama Continued & ESCALATED!

1A - Obama Started and ILLEGAL WAR for good measure!

2 - Obama said the Prescription Drug program was Great and if he didn't like it, WHY DIDN'T HE REPEAL IT?

3 - The SAME Tax CUTS Obama Signed INTO LAW HIMSELF!



AMAZING!

--Despite the widespread notion that raising tax rates automatically means collecting more revenue for the government, history says otherwise. As far back as the 1920s, Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon pointed out that the government received a very similar amount of revenue from high-income earners at low tax rates as it did at tax rates several times as high.

How was that possible? Because high tax rates drive investors into tax shelters, such as tax-exempt bonds. Today, as a result of globalization and electronic transfers of money, "the rich" are even less likely to stand still and be sheared like sheep, when they can easily send their money overseas, to places where tax rates are lower.

Money sent overseas creates jobs overseas and American workers cannot transfer themselves overseas to get those jobs as readily as investors can send their money there.

All the overheated political rhetoric about needing to tax "millionaires and billionaires" is not about bringing in more revenue to the government. It is about bringing in more votes for politicians who stir up class warfare with rhetoric."

Obama = King 0'debt


The leadership vacuum Obama goes on to blame the recession his party ushered in 11 months after taking control of All Congress in 2007, and its resulting decrease in tax revenue on businesses, for making fewer sales, and more employees being laid off. He says the recession also resulted in more government spending due to increased unemployment insurance payments he signed & extended, subsidies to farms and funding of infrastructure programs that were part of his failed stimulus program.

At the first town hall meeting of his Midwestern bus trip last week, Mr. Obama told an audience in Minnesota that "the debt problem is real and the deficit problem is real."

In other settings, he said quite the Opposite.

But he also called in "a manageable problem,"
But numbers are stubborn things with the Gross National Debt now standing at 97.6 percent of the nation's Gross Domestic Product - the total value of goods and services produced by labor and property in the U.S.
