Obama to Push New Spending


#1

President Barack Obama will call for new government spending on infrastructure, education and research in his State of the Union address Tuesday, sharpening his response to Republicans in Congress who are demanding deep budget cuts, people familiar with the speech said.
Mr. Obama will argue that the U.S., even while trying to reduce its budget deficit, must make targeted investments to foster job growth and boost U.S. competitiveness in the world economy. The new spending could include initiatives aimed at building the renewable-energy sector—which received billions of dollars in stimulus funding—and rebuilding roads to improve transportation, people familiar with the matter said. Money to restructure the No Child Left Behind law’s testing mandates and institute more competitive grants also could be included.

Yes sireee, while the nation reels from an economy that is faltering with increases costs from utilities, insurance, food, and housing the president wants more of the same spending to further devalue our currency and spending power.

Today I receive my driver’s license renewal and it went from $10 to $30. My utilities are asking for raises as well as the cost of food and other services. Meanwhile our partying president who holds elaborate meals with $350 bottles of wine and other costly cuisine thinks we need more spending to help us get deeper into debt.

Housing starts are the lowest it has been in 50 years, taxes are going up on property while home values are falling.

Much more can be stated about the economy and the wasted money we have seen that went toward paying off the unions, wall street as well as big business.

Let me address for the moment the cost that has been wasted on the renewable energy sector and how what I have seen is utilities that in the end have to be supplemented with regular utilities in order to maintain any usefulness. Projects like soar power that have been shown to be less than useful when it came to providing meaningful energy to power the electric grid.

Wind turbines that need more in maintenance to run than the savings it supposedly provides.

No Child behind has been shown to be less than fruitful because of the malaise of the teachers and the impossibility of grouping dissimilar children and trying achieve improvement in test scores.

If those folks in the House give him a dime, their careers better be done after one term.

“Renewable Energy” is probably the single biggest waste of money this nation has ever committed itself to, and that is saying something.

At least former long term failures like AMTRAK at least provide some benefit as they bleed us dry. The renewable energy scam is literally a 100 percent loser when all the indirect consequences are considered.

Our new Congress needs to end all this waste and refuse to cut any more checks to States like mine to prop up Unions and failed Social Programs.

Hopefully they are up to the challenge.

They should help him do it and say they had no choice in the matter and then use its failure against him.

The majority of “independent” voters are retarded, and probably don’t understand that the house can stop any and all spending that is passed if they even know the republicans control it at all.

Then, come election time, they can use increasing the budget deficit against him.

It is worth whatever it costs in the short run to get rid of the kenyan in 2012, otherwise, our country will permanently be under european socialism.

That will backfire. The Left will say that Republicans controlled the House and therefore the purse strings so it will be our fault. Obama can propose all the spending increases he wants but he can’t spend a dime unless we approve it. It’s a double edge sword. Stop spending and we “Hate the Poor, Homeless, Sick, Undernourished, Obese Children”. Or we can spend and the deficit is our fault.

They could vote against this program and then take credit for all of the spending already in the budget to help the poor again.

“We didn’t waste money on solar panels but we did agree to spend $80 billion on food for the poor and cut payroll taxes while decreasing the deficit $500 billion the last two years”

Another good option is to commission an investigation as to what the REAL unemployment rate is and then release it and blame the enemy for that, since we all know the government unemployment numbers are a farce.

We could even say that ubama has been lying about it the whole time, which is true, regardless of whether or not his predecessors lied also.
