“Democrats are the same people who rediscover poverty every election and promise to cure it. They’ve cured it so often that they’ve now made a profession of it. They thrive on failures, on righting wrongs, on aiding victims, and so forth. It must be understood that success in those tasks would put them out of business.” ~ Ronald Reagan, December 7, 1973
Obama is using the Sequestration cuts to beat Republicans and America into submission. Applying his usual tactics of threats, scares, and lies he seems to get away with whatever he wants (mainstream media certainly never holds him accountable). Instead of investigating areas that should be cut because of fraud or duplication, Obama is using our debt crisis to further advance his socialistic agenda. There is so much absolute nonsense and fraud in federal spending that we don’t have to cut critical areas like defense and homeland security, we could just cut the areas that need to be stopped and we could probably have a balanced budget in a few years! In fact last week the GOA, Government Office of Accounting, reported 162 areas of waste and duplication—almost $100 billion a year.
· There are 679 overlapping programs just in renewable energy and we see how they’ve worked out over the past 4 years!
· There are 76 different programs on drug abuse across 15 different agencies.
· 47 programs on job training and our unemployment figures are still as high as when Obama took office in 2008.
Private industry removes anything that is not working or they go out of business. Obama and his gang just add more of what is not working to pay off political buddies or to advance their liberal agenda.
The GOA estimates the federal government could save $2.5 trillion over 10 years if Congress and the administration worked at cutting waste and duplication instead of just ignoring it and adding to it.
In fact, if Obama would stop vacationing and running around the country campaigning (Air Force One costs $180,000 an hr. to operate), we would save a tremendous amount. Obama has barely been in the White House since he took office; which, of course, makes sense as he had no job experience (certainly no leadership experience) before entering the White House. He probably doesn’t know what to do so he runs away. His only experience has been in community organizing and campaigning, which we really don’t need at this point in our country.
We must keep sending emails, making calls, writing to the newspapers. We must stop the insanity.
