Why Did It Take Till 1/1/2013?

Just a quick and simple post to note exactly why it took until 1/1/2013 to have the Republicans pass the massive tax and spend bill H.R. 8 to avoid the so-called Fiscal Cliff.

On 1/1/2013, the taxes went up anyway.  Now, the Republicans can spin their vote as an effort to reduce taxes from the increased taxes that were in effect on 1/1/2013.

Aren’t they just great!  Good thing they don’t try to treat us like ignorant peasants like the Democrats do.

Fiscal Cliff: Let’s Make A Deal

The solution to the problems in America’s economy, finances, debt, and obligations is certainly NOT for the Federal Government to have more money and control — as if, under Barack Obama’s claim, you just hive him another $100 Billion more per year, all our problems will be solved.

Under Clinton, yes, taxes were higher, but spending was 18% of GDP instead of the current 25% of GDP. THAT h/t http://www.yourcpapartners.com/is why the budget was (closed to being) balanced… …along with the whole of the Congress and President knowing that Newt Gingrich was willing to take the Nuclear Option and shut down the Federal Government.

So, to solve our problems, a true leader, a true conservative/libertarian would introduce legislation and vote to reduce the amount of money taken out of the economy by the Federal Government and reduce the amount of our labors the Federal Government spends.

It’s simple common sense… …that is so uncommon these days.

So, why would any Republican, the party of Fiscal Responsibility, bring legislation to the floor and vote to increase taxes and spending?

There is only one answer:

They care more about their future as a legislator than they do about what’s best for America.

So, when they vote to increase your taxes and increase the money going to the government and increase spending (while calling it deficit reduction), you know that that person is not working for you and the betterment of America.  They are callously voting to ensure their own future is bright at the expense of yours.

Maybe you ought to vote ‘no’ this time when they tell you they are the true conservative/libertarian but their votes show they are not.

The Real Obama Tax Increase

If the voters authorize your subdivision association to spend $10.00 per year, and they spend $11.00 per year.  That’s a $1.00 increase in taxes that dwellers will be required to pay.  It’s a 10% tax increase.

Now magnify that to the scale of Obama’s 4 years.*  American’s authorized the Federal Government to spend $9,836,745,000,000… …yes, that’s almost $10 Trillion.

Barack Obama and the Democrats spent $14,658,185,000,000 — that’s $14.6 Trillion!

By the logic in the 1st sentence, that’s a $4,821,440,000,000 TAX INCREASE!  Per citizen, that’s a $15,306.16 Tax Increase… …a 49% tax increase.  It’s $4,000 per family just for the interest on Obama’s debt

So much for lowering taxes on 98% of all Americans.

*This reflects fiscal years 2010 – 2013 over which the President presided.

Free Candy

Adapted from E-Mail:

The folks who are getting the free candy don’t like the folks who are paying for the free candy, because the folks who are paying for the free candy can no longer afford to pay for both the free candy and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the free candy want the free candy to stop.

And the folks who are getting the free candy want even more free candy on top of the free candy they are already getting!

Now… the people who are forcing the people who pay for the free candy have told the people who are RECEIVING the free candy that the people who are PAYING for the free candy are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

So… the people who are GETTING the free candy have been convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the free candy by the people who are forcing some people to pay for their free candy and giving them the free candy in the first place.

We have let the free candy giving go on for so long that there are now more people getting free candy than paying for the free candy.

So, who is being selfish?  The one’s sick of paying for the free candy?  Or, the ones bitching because we don’t want to pay for their free candy?
