Obama: Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal

Obama: Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal

President Obama on Friday kept up the pressure on Republicans to agree to revenue increases in a deal to raise the debt ceiling, claiming 80 percent of the public supports Democrats’ demand for tax increases.

“The American people are sold,” Obama said. “The problem is members of Congress are dug in ideologically.”

Throughout the press conference, Obama blasted Republicans for ignoring what he said is the will of the American people by rejecting tax increases that would balance out spending cuts in a debt package.

“This is not an issue of salesmanship to the American people,” Obama said.

Obama: Public is ‘sold’ on tax increases in a debt-ceiling deal

Yesterday, July 15th, I made a post entitled Obama and the Democrats: Liars and Fear Mongers, it now appears I left off a couple of other names that can be attached to the administration of Barack Hussein Obama.

Fool, moron, idiot, moonbat, delusional Socialist SOBs, America hating trash, any number of words can be used to describe what Obama and Company are and what they are doing to this nation.

Obama is trying his very best to ‘sell’ his financial plan to America, failing to ‘sell’ it, he is prepared to force it off on the American people, he will shove his Socialist beliefs down our throats whether we like it or not. No sane, thinking person is SOLD on this lunacy and if Obama believes they are, he is a fool.

“I hope [Republicans are] not just listening to lobbyists and special interests … I hope they’re listening to the American people as well,” Obama said, citing “poll after poll” showing Republican voters, as well as Democrats, believe in taking “a balanced approach” — including both increased revenues and spending cuts in a plan to cut the deficit.

Obama isn’t listening to the American people, if he was, he would be frightened out of his wits. The Democrats aren’t listening to the American people, if they were they wouldn’t be supporting the most destructive President ever.

The GOP is no better; RINOs run the GOP, there is no big Conservative power base, the power of the GOP is Republican In Name Only, RINO

Sadly, there are RINOs lining up to support Obama in this travesty.

With the recent revelation that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to allow President Obama (or any president for that matter) to have the ability to raise the debt level without Congressional approval, we must all ask if we even want this man as a political leader anymore. McConnell is starting to sound like a Democrat who wants to spend, spend, spend instead of fixing the problem. It’s also an indication that he is not willing to make the right hard decisions and live with the political consequences. He needs to read the closing line of the Declaration of Independence: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” SOURCE

I don’t know if Mitch McConnell has gulped down a glass of Obama Kool-Aid or not, but it sure seems like it to me.

And if you need even more proof that RINOs are destroying the USA just as much as any Dem/Libber, Reid, McCain praise McConnell’s debt ceiling ‘back-up’ plan, any time you’re not fully convinced that Obama and the Democrats are WRONG, just look at the biggest RINO in the herd, Sen. John McCain, and see where he stands and who he is standing with and supports.

I don’t blame just Obama the Democrats that are taking America over the edge, the GOP and it’s nefarious ne’er do wells are just as guilty.

From the original story:

Obama repeated his warning that the country is “running out of time” to avert a financial “Armageddon.”

“We should not even be this close on a deadline,” Obama said. “This is something we should have accomplished earlier.”

America should have never elected Barack Hussein Obama to the presidency, but given the choice between McCain and Ms. Mooseburgers, well, I’m not sure that McCain would be any better. Ms. Mooseburgers would still be the VPOTUS and a do nothing figurehead spouting off much like Joe *Gaff a Minute* Biden.

Obama said he is still pushing for a “big” deal to raise the debt ceiling by the Aug. 2 deadline despite the hardening of positions on Capitol Hill.

“I always have hope,” Obama said. “Don’t you remember my campaign?”

Yes, we DO remember your campaign, and the majority of Americans are paying daily for the lies and BULLSHIT that your evil, thuggish regime, your Chicago community organizer and Union slug style offers us.

How so many American could have been bamboozled by the *rock star* hype and persona isn’t hard to figure out actually. Look at who watches Dancing With the Stars, America’s Got Talent and the like. Many Americans are oblivious to what’s going on around them and are in a near catatonic state that allows them to fall for, and accept anything offered.

White Democrats were told that if they didn’t vote OBAMA they would be considered as racists and would be ostracized by the Democratic party.

Traditionally, unions, Blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals and Jews have been the stalwart of the Democratic party. Homosexuals I can understand, the Dems are tolerant of them and have supported their efforts to have traditional marriages and of course there is the Code Pink crowd, they are Dems for the same reasons. Unions I can understand, crooks seem to always support their fellow crooks.

Blacks and Hispanics support Dems for reasons known only to them, I can see no logical explanation for their unwavering Democratic support, the Dems have victimized Blacks and Hispanics for well over 200 years.

I have a few friends that are Conservative Jews, I have asked them to please explain to me why so many Jewish people support the Democratic party and Obama in particular. My friends can offer no logical explanation there either.

All I know is this, and I believe it with every fiber of my being; if Obama isn’t ousted soon, by recall, impeachment or the like, or, barring that, if we don’t vote out Obama, the libbers, RINOs and socialist scum that we now have in power, if we are so stupid that we allow Barack Hussein Obama to continue for another four years in office, the United States will be nothing more than a distant memory and an obscure page in history.

We are well on our way to Third World status my friends, unless We, The People rise as one and change that, it’s all over but the crying.

I want to send a big Texas tip o’ the Stetson to my cousin, John Witzell. He knows my political likes and dislikes as well as anyone, and he is the one that sent me the link that inspired my post today.

    Ok, I’m normally against raising taxes in any way. But there is a loophole in the tax code that all fair-minded people should be willing to close. It would raise somewhere between 6 and 7 times as much as the accelerated depreciation on “corporate” jets. The loophole I’m referring to is the deduction for union dues. Now it is clear that they are not paying their fair share. In these days of a difficult economy we must all pull together. It is time to close the loophole that allows some Americans to prosper at the expense of others. Closing this loophole in the tax code would save America about $25 Billion per year. Not much you say! No, not compared to what they’re spending. But these rich fat-cat union members have prospered at the expense of the little guy for too long.

    So what say America? Isn’t it about time that we closed this loophole and made everyone pay their fair share?

    Keep your powder dry

    Texasperated — When I started reading your comment I was having a *huh* moment until I got into a bit…

    Bingo! You hit that one out of the park my friend! :P

    Hit the Unions that support the Obamessiah and make them pony up for that stupidity…

  3. jd3 says:

    Great Post Fred…I knew you could address this one with your usual eloquence……this story hit me like a ton of bricks…

    Do the math….80% want a tax increase? Four out of five….eight out of ten…..eighty out of a hundred….who is he kidding? He can’t even get numbers like that out of the fancy neighborhood he lives in much less out of the taxpayers that pay the bulk of the taxes in this country…..I would tend to think that he is reversing the actual poll numbers….

    It should be obvious to everyone after Obamacare was shoved down everyone’s throats that he is a “My Way or Highway” President with little concern for what the majority of Americans want and stand for…..He came into office with this attitude and he isn’t going to change…..

    Congress passed a Debt Ceiling….well guess what…..it isn’t real…..if they can change it whenever they like it isn’t a ceiling at all….and don’t get to thinking the Republicans are stonewalling raising it…..they aren’t ….they are just trying to get whatever concessions they can out of Obama……and they might lose to this egomaniac that thinks his way is the only way……

    Label Obama for what he really is….a free spending socialist Democrat that wants to tax and spend….

    As to reelection we might as well face it…..the Republican Party doesn’t have anyone to run against an incumbent President….our only hope is to use our votes wisely and put people in Congress that will stand up to him…..

    Sure Mr. President…..eighty per cent of us are just dying for you to raise our taxes and support your tax and spend ways…..I know…..let’s build schools in Kenya so we can look forward to having another Kenyan as President some day….

    I looked at the McConnell plan and thought! what the #$%@. I wonder what obama was thinking when he read it…”Them fools aint gona give me dat!!Its gotta be a trap!!!

  5. jd3 says:

    Obama is too smart to fall for that one……he’s not going to let anyone pin anything on him….if he get’s pushed on ObamaCare he’ll blame it on Pelosi…

  6. Katie says:

    It is only the idiot Progressives who want to raise taxes on everyone but their friends. In the most recent polls conducted among everyday Americans, 80% say that they DON’T WANT THEIR TAXES RAISED! That was one of the things that helped form the Tea Party.

    Raise our taxes Mr. President and on Jan. 20, 2013 you will be going back to Chicago PERMENENTLY!

  7. It pains me to say this but there is a segment of our population who will hear Obama’s words and think _ Oh, 80% agree with the President, it must be okay _ and then go back to watching re-runs of Two and a Half Men, or something.

  8. GM Roper says:

    Fred, Fred, Fred! When are you going to stop holding it in and tell us how you really feel. Your comment that Texasperated hit the ball out of the park is true, but it is equally true that you did also, with this post.

    While I’m upset with the RINO’s in Congress, I’m hopeful that more folks like Eric Cantor will learn to “Just say no!”

    Geeze, how could the Reps be so damn stupid?

  10. The Demorats lack a plan. Obama has lots and lots of evasive rhetoric, but he doesn’t have ONE PLAN besides: we must TAX and there can be NO spending CUTS.

    The Republicans lack cohesion. And here’s a plan that isn’t quite a shocker, but could work budgetarily and politically:

    Just as Charles Krauthammer suggests in the article I quoted in my post, the Republicans could agree to a short-term debt ceiling hike of, say, $500 BILLION — in a bill that contained $500 billion in BUDGET CUTS. Then line up the Republicans like little soldiers. Back it, pass it, throw it on Mr Obama’s desk. If he vetoes the bill then he now OWNS IT, forever and ever.

    The one thing that the GOP has never realized and apparently never will is this:

    They seem to “fear” that they will be blamed if the Demorats don’t get every little scrap of pork they want. And yes, they WILL. But, extended, the Republicans will be blamed no matter WHAT they do! So, bottom line, pull out all the stops because the blame will come either way.

    The GOP is so like a little kid that lives for the approval of everyone.

    My high school civics teacher from the 60s was SO correct when he told us little Leftist twerps: “Democrats don’t win elections; Republicans lose them.”
