The Largest Tax Hikes in American History are Coming
Thanks to the liberals, 2011 will usher in the biggest tax hikes of our history. Go here to read all about it.
For those of you who voted for the Democrats that now run Congress, how do you feel about being pushed into a much higher income bracket simply because your health care benefits will now be lumped in with your gross income and must be added as income for tax purposes? Yes, you will taxed for your health benefits, with they are from a private insurer through your employer or a public program through the government.
For those of you who voted for Obama to be your president, what do you think of his pledge to not raise taxes of any kind on anyone making $250,000 or less? You can read the government's own documents for your self.
I appreciate President Obama honoring the troops in his speech about Iraq last night. However, it amazes me that he took credit for the success and completion of the mission as well as the withdrawal of the troops. The August 31st deadline to withdraw troops was set by Iraq during the Bush administration. The success in of the mission in Iraq would not have happened without the 30,000 troop surge recommended by General Petraeus and approved by President Bush. The left-wing liberals referred to the general as General "Be tray us" and vilified President Bush. Our current commander-in-chief was a senator from Illinois then and insisted the troop surge would fail. He was very wrong but will not admit he was wrong and will not give President Bush the credit he rightly deserves. Here is then Senator Obama in his own words...
President Obama and the Democratic Congress are in serious trouble with voters if the polls are accurate. Obama's big socialist government approach to handling domestic and foreign policy as well as the liberal bills being passed by the Pelosi/Reid Congress are bearing the fruit of the progressives and liberals agendas. People have finally realized that socialism and big government DOES NOT WORK!
The polling numbers suggest the same scenario in this year's mid-term elections that happened in 1994 where Republicans surged to take over Congress. My prediction is the Democrats will lose control of the House but barely hold on to the Senate with a two or four seat advantage. In other words, total gridlock until 2012.
Hundreds of millions of our tax dollars have gone to support this this leftist, socialist group? No wonder our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves. How can anyone say, that given a chance, liberals would not turn our country into a far-left socialist country or even a Union of Soviet Socialist Republic of Amerika. Big Bertha desperately tries to inflame fears of racism but it won't work this time.
President Obama is a liar and a hypocrite of the political kind. He has ALWAYS said he is against freezing the federal budget. His statements in the presidential debates about budget freezes prove it he is a liar. Now, he says we need a freeze. Want evidence Obama is a liar? Politico has provided a nice little clip showing Obama's statements in the presidential debates about federal budget freezes.
Obama has not, all of a sudden, seen the light of financial responsibility. I am convinced Obama is proposing a freeze now to try to throw a bone to independents who have turned suddenly and wholesale against him and his socialist policies. They have finally seen him for what he is, a full-fledged socialist. Ironically, the political winds have turned badly against him and his socialist agenda. Brown and Massachusetts' voters have said "Enough is enough!" Obama and his socialist elitists, for some reason, think they know better how to spend people's hard earned money. Pay attention to what Obama said in the debates about making sure we all "share" the burden.
The assault on liberty and freedom by Obama and his socialist elites is astounding. But I am encouraged to see the election results of even the bastions of progressive elitism repudiating Obama and his ilk. "Enough is enough!" Thank you Massachusetts for restoring my hope in the Constitution and the protection of liberty and freedom.
As more and more people of all parties, particularly the independents who are not tied to any party, see the hypocrisy and lies of Obama and his socialist elites, some sense of sanity and responsibility will be restored to Washington. I am looking forward to this year's elections.
As a Christian, my primary focus in life is the spiritual. But as a Christian, I am also a conservative that desires to engage in the public discourse of those things that affect me a Christian. --"Then you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free." John 8:32--
