As expected, Obama called for another round of stimulus spending during his much ballyhooed “Jobs Speech” before a joint session of Congress on Thursday night.
Obama proposed $450 billion in new spending while announcing the so called “American Jobs Act”, but as usual, he gave few details on how or when the new speeding would be “paid for”. According to Obama, the “rich” will be taxed more. But, who defines “rich”? If the “rich” are those making 200K or more a year, that would mean taxing small businesses, at the time we should be incentivizing small businesses. Obama went on to engage in an incomprehensible, out of both sides of the mouth, disgusting display of class warfare that brought forth a well deserved round of load moans from conservatives in the chamber.
Obama referred to the new spending as being “targeted” and I’m sure that will be the case. Just as with the first stimulus, it will be targeted to bail out liberal states whose public sector unions and their political cronies have bankrupted their treasury with ridiculous benefits and Cadillac pension/health care plans. The only jobs this stimulus will save is unionized government jobs, at the very time in our history that big government bureaucracy should be cut.
How much more proof do Americans need to be able to clearly understand that Obama has no real plan to create jobs, other than the tragic failure of the Keynesian economic model.
The very definition of insanity is to continue doing the same thing over and over again, while expecting a different outcome. Every stimulus plan in the last 10 years has been an epic failure and has done nothing to spur job growth. On the contrary, the only thing stimulus spending has achieved is to add to the massive $14.6 trillion dollar debt.
Obama displayed his firm belief in a massive central government that controls every aspect of our lives. According to Barack Obama, the government is responsible for all good things in life, from computer chips, to the internet, to furry little bunnies and cute kittens.
Yes, according to Obama, the government is the answer to all of our problems and those racist, tea party terrorists are standing in his way. He went on to “suggest” (without explicitly saying so) that the Tea Party ideal of small government was un-American. It was a thoroughly reprehensible display of partisan politics and a blatant attempt to setup a straw man for the upcoming presidential election.
Obama understands that his policies have failed miserably and he needs an enemy to blame for his incompetence. That enemy will be the Tea Party movement. The President knows that he has zero chance of getting his new stimulus plan passed, but he will claim that he could have turned everything around, if only it were not for the evil and intransigent Tea Party movement members. That’s the plan, folks and we all know it.
I personally believe there are enough liberty minded Tea Party patriots to expose Obama’s big government, redistributive agenda for the epic failure that it is. Spread the word!!
