Obama sends Congress $3.8 trillion spending plan
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama sent Congress a $3.8 trillion spending blueprint on Wednesday that strives to achieve a “grand bargain” to tame runaway deficits, raising taxes on the wealthy and trimming popular benefit programs including Social Security and Medicare.
The president’s budget projects deficit reductions of $1.8 trillion over the next decade, achieved with higher taxes, reductions in payments to Medicare providers and cutbacks in the cost-of-living adjustments paid to millions of recipients in Social Security and other government programs.
The budget would also nearly double the federal tax on cigarettes to $1.95 per pack. That money would fund a new pre-school program for 4-year-olds.
The president’s proposed spending for the 2014 fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, would rise 2.5 percent from this year. SOURCE
Barack Obama had NO experience as a LEADER whatsoever; I mean NONE, all he knows is to *dictate* and raise taxes. He paid attention to his Commie mentors apparently.
All he had ever accomplished was to talk some like-minded welfare slugs into voting him into the Illinois Senate and then into the U.S. Senate.
That’s not that great an accomplishment: look at the number of elected Illinois officials that have been removed from office for criminal activities, but the people of Illinois still vote these cretins into power. This time it really backfired, this one went *big time* and now the entire nation is paying the price of Obama’s incompetence.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership. He hadn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
The Left took an arrogant community organizer who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief of the greatest nation and military in the world.
Barack Obama, a guy who never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything bigger than an ACORN demonstration, and the LEFT made him “Beloved Leader” of the United States, TWICE!
I have said this repeatedly, but I am going to say it again; elections DO have consequences, and we are now reaping what the Democrats and Liberals, as well as some weak-minded *White Guilt* GOP members have sown.
And I would address this to ALL Members of the U.S. Congress and Senate; has it ever occurred to you folks to JUST SAY NO? Have you ever thought that you need to cut this Commie TWIT off at the knees and be done with him? Do you people actually possess ANY real COURAGE?
The Congress and Senate are supposed to be the ones that run this nation, not Barack Obama and his evil minions. Act like you’re Americans and not some Muslim sympathizer and Commie/Socialist anti-American slug of humanity.
And to the Libbers that DO read here; if you think I am being disrespectful of Barack Obama, you would actually be correct! I detest him and everything he and the Democrats stand for! If you think I’m tough on him here you should hear what I say to friends when we talk face to face.
