WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE


Sen. Mitch McConnell (pictured, right) on fiscal cliff deal: “we’ve taken care of the revenue side of this debate”.
Oh, how wrong he was!

Obama:
“But we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. Cutting spending has to go hand-in-hand with further reforms to our tax code so that the wealthiest corporations and individuals can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most Americans. And we can't keep cutting things like basic research and new technology and still expect to succeed in a 21st century economy. So we're going to have to continue to move forward in deficit reduction, but we have to do it in a balanced way, making sure that we are growing even as we get a handle on our spending.” 
So Obama hasn't really settled on the tax rate – neither has (Princess) Nancy Pelosi........


So Mitch can bask in the glory of claiming to have rid America of the threat of further Obama tax hikes but that doesn't correlate with what the President is saying, nor his record. The GOP caved on ‘rates’ and Obama is now running the table. Well done!

The famed slogan that the “rich are not paying their fair share of the tax burden” is something that propelled him to electoral success. The concept is amazing and can be summarized into the following statement:

Why do bad things happen to good people?
The good people are the middle class who never get a break. 
The bad people are the 1% who have gotten away with avoiding taxes for so long. 
That's the Obama vision – not only are you creating a dependent society, you are creating a resentful society. 
Obama was able to depict Governor Romney in such a way that people were frothing in their mouth whenever the GOP candidate uttered a word. That is purely a tactic of resentment. America used to cherish success, that has changed.
The only issue with Obama’s plan is that eventually people’s money will run out. You cannot rely on a fraction of your population, to prop up a nation of 300 million people. Obama won that argument in 2012 so that essentially means that  common sense died in America with his election.
So while Obama will look to make savings through savage cuts to the Defense Department (with thanks to Chuck Hagel) and through ignoring foreign policy (a-la Bill Clinton) – he is going head on with the following: 
  1. Creating jobs - sounds good but when did you meet your job council?
  2. boosting incomes - kind of need a job for that? 
  3. fixing infrastructure - SHOVEL READY JOBS!
  4. fixing an immigration system - amnesty for any potential Democrat.
  5. Protecting our planet from the harmful effects of climate change. Thank you Al  Gore .
  6. Boosting domestic energy production - except for the forms which the EPA don't like (all the productive ones).
  7. protecting our kids from the horrors of gun violence. Revoke the 2nd Amendment.
That is all well and good but frankly he has no way to pay for any of that. Do you think that by increasing taxes on 1% will allow you to pay for all of the above? It’s not like our debt is at zero and we are taking a slight gamble; our deficit is over £16 trillion and climbing.

In a press conference (1/14)- Obama said: "So they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way, where everybody pulls their weight, everyone does their part".
 What part of a permanent underclass does ‘everyone does their part’ mean to you? It’s absurd and he needs to be challenged on that.
While he attacks the job creators – he use their money to fund his inaugural parade.
While he attacks corporations he'll enjoy their $$$$ on inauguration day.
By the way, people are making a fuss about the lack of women in the Obama cabinet. I would respectfully suggest that Obama hire a few people from the lower classes to join his team. That would be fair don’t you think?
Revenue will always be on the table with this President. We always think that he can act rationally but time and again he has proven otherwise.
America needs bold leadership to take on Obama. It is clear that the second term agenda for this President is not the spread of wealth and jobs for all; but rather the destruction of capitalism, conservatism, ‘Reaganism’, our military and the American dream. 
May the lord have mercy over America.
