According to The Obama, the stimulus bill was so important not a minute could be wasted to get it passed. Your Representatives had a scant 16 hours (in the wee hours of the night) to vote on the package. We were told not a minute could be wasted as jobs were at stake. Why did the President wait four days to sign it? I guess making sure he got the right publicity was more important than jobs. I guess The Obama really does care more about himself than he does you. Of course we know why a quick vote had to be done -- the Democrats who wrote the bill wanted to get it passed before the American Public could find out what was in it.
Now the President wants the 93% of Americans who pay their mortgage on time to pay for the balance that cannot, will not, and should never had been given a mortgage. Could Sammy or his liberal friends explain to me again how The Obama has no intentions of punishing the successful or redistributing wealth? Let me understand, the Government forced banks to give mortgages to people unqualified. Now we will force those same banks to reduce interest, forgive penalties and fees and this will make the banking and housing system stronger? Consider this, the stock market has lost nearly 6,000 points since the Dems took over Congress.
Obama has vowed to be our first "green" President. He cares more than most about our environment. He wants to reduce greenhouse gases. Yet he flies to Denver in a 747 with about 20 heavily armored SUVs that get about 5 mpg. Local police drive escorts through Denver and Phoenix so he can sign a bill and announce his solution to the mortgage crisis. If he cared about the environment he could have signed the bill in Washington and given his speech on TV. If he was so interested in speaking to the kids at that Arizona High School it could have been done via closed circuit. To save money we use a web based client for meetings in my company. Maybe he should have tried that. The Obama does not care; after all it is only tax money. Ponder this, it has been estimated it costs $68,000 per hour to operate Airforce One. In addition to the 747, the President's security requires two VC-25As and a C-130 for his limo. One source estimates it costs $85,000 in fuel alone for these three additional planes. How many carbon offsets will that take? How many unemployed to could be provided for? Heck, that amount might just take care of the 14 kids that woman has spawned in California with the help of the taxpayers.
I see the Obama has already extended his deadline for pulling troops out of Iraq and is increasing troops strength in Afghanistan ( I thought surges in troop levels would not work in war against insurgents/terrorists?).
Can we stop with the worst economy since the Depression and the hysteria over banks failing? There were 13 bank failures in the last year. More S&Ls folded in the 1990's. There were 10,000 bank failures in 1932. Inflation was higher in the 1970s. Unemployment was higher in 1982. Maybe if we are so concerned with getting Americans back to work, we should start enforcing the immigration laws and send the illegals packing. That would open about 6 million jobs for Americans who want to work.
Those of you who voted for this empty suit -- is this the Hope and Change you voted for? The good news is if things keep on, we will
have some significant change in 2010.
