Obama proposals face quick opposition in Congress
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama set up high-stakes clashes over guns, immigration, taxes and climate change in a State of the Union address that showcased a newly re-elected president determined to mark his legacy, facing off against a deeply divided Congress with Republicans eager to rein him in.
At the center of it all was a fight over the very role of government, with Obama pushing a raft of new initiatives to improve preschool programs and voting, boost manufacturing and research and development, raise the minimum wage and lower energy use. “It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many and not just the few,” he said.
Republicans who control the House and hold enough votes to stall legislation in the Senate were just as quick to declare that the government helps best by getting out of the way. SOURCE
Once again the most ignorant, arrogant, inept and narcissistic Socialist in America runs off at the mouth and shows us that he really is the most ignorant, arrogant, inept and narcissistic Socialist in America.
That’s it … that’s all I have for Barack Hussein Obama. I detest this person, I have no respect for him, I mean NONE! He is a stain on the FREE FACE of America and has besmirched the Office of the President to the point that I have little, if ANY respect for the office itself, and those are words I never thought I would say.
Barack Hussein Obama is nothing more than a Chicago crook that got some good press coverage. He used his RACE to work the press and the press loved it.
Obama learned his craft, that of a community organizer, at the knee of his mentors, Communists and Socialists that are/were dead set on the idea of destroying the USA.
They found a willing foil in a young Obama, a willing dupe that ate up the teaching of Marx, Lenin, Alinsky and people like Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis. Last night the words that Obama spoke confirmed everything I have just put forth; Obama is a Liberal Socialist of the 1st order.
“More government isn’t going to help you get ahead. It’s going to hold you back. More government isn’t going to create more opportunities. It’s going to limit them,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said in the Republican response Tuesday night. “And more government isn’t going to inspire new ideas, new businesses and new private sector jobs. It’s going to create uncertainty.”
Marco Rubio speaks the truth! It seems the only thing Obama knows is to respond to each and every situation with more government and more taxes.
And once again I am of the opinion that Obama is on the verge of trying to completely go around the U.S. Congress and take control of the USA, running it by Executive Order. That will be the only way Obama can accomplish even a little bit of his agenda unless Congress goes absolutely crazy.
My Congressman, Pete Sessions, had this to say:
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, tonight released the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address:
“In tonight’s address, President Obama once again touted his ostensible commitment to job creation and fiscal responsibility. Unfortunately, the American people have heard these empty campaign promises for the past four years. Instead of turning his rhetoric into responsible action, the President’s policies have burdened our economy with unprecedented levels of spending, record deficits and debt, and inevitably high unemployment. It’s time for a new direction, not retreaded policies.
“As Congress faces several upcoming fiscal deadlines, I urge the President to join House Republican efforts to address our nation’s spending crisis. We have voted twice to replace his sequester with responsible spending reductions and reforms that will begin to trim down our deficit and ultimately balance our budget. Instead of proposing job-destroying tax hikes on hardworking families to pay for Washington’s unrestrained spending, the President should chart a new course for his presidency and promote pro-growth policies that will get our fiscal house in order.
“In the 113th Congress, House Republicans will continue to provide common-sense solutions to the challenges of our time. It is my hope that in the President’s second term he will finally join our efforts to get our nation’s spending under control so we can get Americans back to work, provide certainty in the marketplace, and create a brighter future for generations to come.” SOURCE
I know Pete is sincere in his hope that Obama will “finally join our efforts to get our nation’s spending under control so we can get Americans back to work, provide certainty in the marketplace, and create a brighter future for generations to come”, and I hope he is correct too, but I am not nearly as optimistic as Rep. Sessions.
Pete Sessions is a great guy, a real Conservative, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and American freedom, but I have found out another thing about Pete Sessions; he is a fighter!
I have gained a lot of respect for Pete. I communicate with him and his staff on a regular basis and I KNOW for a fact that Pete is working his butt off to counter all of the BS that pours from the Obama regime.
In summation; Congress has to fight Obama and his stupidity on ALL fronts. I hope the Senate will do so as well, but with the Democratic control of the Senate I don’t see a lot of good coming from that Hallowed Hall for some time yet!
