Just when I thought that I had seen the worst of Obama, he turns around and does this…
The list of his failures is endless. The emptiness of his ideas are epic. Yet, for all the disappointments and shock that I have experienced with Obama nothing prepared me for the moment when he looked into the camera on 60 Minutes and told a cold-blooded lie. “I am only responsible for an increase of 10% of the national debt.” I am straining to stay calm writing this.
He added 5.7 Trillion dollars to the debt in 4 years! He added more than all presidents before him combined. The national debt is $16 trillion! Your child owes $66,000. That is higher than Spain, Portugal and Greece!
His callous lie demonstrates the depth of his ignorance about the greatest danger Americans face. It is a greater danger than global warming or foreign enemies. Worse, it shows his complete disregard for Americans.
Wait, there is more…under his current plan, already voted in by the Democratic Senate the debt will increase to $25 Billion next year. That is when our debt will be greater than what our economy produces. Another word for that is bankruptcy.
It gets worse. Listen to Senator Jeff Sessions, ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee:
“This is a grim landmark for the United States. The gross debt of our federal government will, for the first time, surpass $16 trillion. That’s more government debt per person than Portugal, Italy, Spain, or Greece. Yet the President seems strangely unconcerned. His budget, which received zero votes in the House or Senate, would add another $66,000 in debt for every American household. And the President’s majority in the Senate, which is required by law to produce a budget plan every single year, has refused to do so for more than 1,200 days.
“We are on a dramatically unsustainable path. Forty cents of every dollar we spend is borrowed. Systemic factors, such as our aging population, make this the most serious financial challenge our nation has ever faced. This year will mark the fourth straight deficit in excess of a trillion dollars. In the last 3 months, more people have been permanently been added to the disability rolls than have found jobs. The IRS is mailing billions of dollars in tax credits to illegal aliens, and the USDA is partnering with Mexico to boost enrollment in food stamps. Washington is disconnected from reality.
“But this crisis cannot be ducked. By failing to outline any serious plan for the financial future of this country, Democrats who run the Senate and the White House have no basis on which to ask to be kept in their majority. The nation is in desperate need of strong executive leadership to end the financial chaos, restore discipline to government, and lead us to an economic renaissance.”
Obama does not care about you, your future, your children or their future. He could not even remember what the national debt was when he was asked on the David Letterman show.
Let me repeat one part…the man who said he only responsible for 10% of the increase in debt is, among other things, “mailing billions of dollars in tax credits to illegal aliens, and the USDA is partnering with Mexico to boost enrollment in food stamps.”
Billions around the word live under tyrants and they cannot do anything about it. We can and we must! We have this one last gasp. We can vote this tyrant out. Think of it, in one more year the debt will stand at $25 trillion…what will it be if this man gets 4 more years?
