A Patriotic Response to the “Clown Prince;” 03/03/2013

    On Friday, I met with leaders of both parties in Congress to try and find a way  forward in light of the severe budget cuts – known in Washington as “the  sequester” – that have already started to inflict pain on communities across the  country.  These cuts are not smart. They will hurt our economy and cost us jobs. And  Congress can turn them off at any time – as soon as both sides are willing to  compromise.  As a nation, we’ve already fought back from the worst economic crisis of our  lifetimes, and we’ll get through this, too. But at a time when our businesses  are finally gaining some traction, hiring new workers, bringing jobs back to  America – the last thing Washington should do is to get in their way. That’s  what these cuts to education, research, and defense will do. It’s unnecessary.  And at a time when too many of our friends and neighbors are still looking for  work, it’s inexcusable.

   Now, it’s important to understand that, while not everyone will feel the pain  of these cuts right away, the pain will be real. Many middle-class families will  have their lives disrupted in a significant way.  Beginning this week, businesses that work with the military will have to lay  folks off. Communities near military bases will take a serious blow. Hundreds of  thousands of Americans who serve their country – Border Patrol agents, FBI  agents, civilians who work for the Defense Department – will see their wages cut  and their hours reduced.  This will cause a ripple effect across the economy. Businesses will suffer  because customers will have less money to spend. The longer these cuts remain in  place, the greater the damage. Economists estimate they could eventually cost us  more than 750,000 jobs and slow our economy by over one-half of one percent.

[What I’m not telling you:  Well, folks…. I held my breath and those evil republicRATics “let me turn blue” over my silly obstinance with the very sequestration plan completely and singularly of my design!!  Late last evening–after a final day of whinin‘, pissin‘ ‘n’ moanin,’–I signed the order officially installing MY sequestration plan as law!!  My final day of demeaning all opposition to obamunism proved to be of little consequence in this latest kerfuffle.

    Most economists–obamunist or logical–agree that the country desparately needs spending cuts; needs a budget system that’s been revamped in favor of the taxpayer!  The country–both obamunist and republicRAT–must legislate the concept of baseline budgeting into oblivion!!  This is the plan inwhich each budget-year begins at the previous budget PLUS a pre-determined percentage increase.  As an example:  The Ag Department 2012 budget was $100 Billion.  The same department’s budget will be that $100 Billion PLUS $8 Billion (the result of that guaranteed 8 [or whatever] percent automatic gain.  This is primarily an obamunist action:  If I don’t get the ENTIRE automatic increase; say–in the above example, only a 4% increase–then I’ll scream about draconian budget cuts, even though the department budget is increasing by 4%.  obamunists are never happy with budget cuts–or, for that matter–even reasonable increases.

    If it really is true, that we’re working our way out of the obama Depression, why-the-hell would anyone EXCEPT MY obamUNISTS even consider tax increases to continue to take more-and-more monies out of the economy?!?  The federal government is the last entity that should have any additional funds at all!!  The less money available for the federal government to piss away; the more in private hands to be used to fuel the economy.  We–here at barackingham Palace–adhere to the “Ronaldus-Magnus” axiom on the government’s view of the economy:

“If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving,  subsidize it.” The only way the federal budget will ever come under control is to remove “BASELINE BUDGETING” from the process!!  Certainly, political logic–from either party–has not worked; is not even evident!!]

    Here’s the thing: none of this is necessary. It’s happening because Republicans in Congress chose this outcome over closing a single wasteful tax  loophole that helps reduce the deficit. Just this week, they decided that  protecting special interest tax breaks for the well-off and well-connected is  more important than protecting our military and middle-class families from these  cuts.  I still believe we can and must replace these cuts with a balanced approach – one that combines smart spending cuts with entitlement reform and changes to our  tax code that make it more fair for families and businesses without raising  anyone’s tax rates. That’s how we can reduce our deficit without laying off  workers, or forcing parents and students to pay the price. I don’t think that’s  too much to ask. It’s the kind of approach I’ve proposed for two years now. A  majority of the American people agree with me on this approach – including a  majority of Republicans. We just need Republicans in Congress to catch up with  their own party and the rest of the country. 

    Now, I know there are Republicans in Congress who would actually rather see  tax loopholes closed than let these cuts go through. And I know there are  Democrats who’d rather do smart entitlement reform than let these cuts go  through. There’s a caucus of common sense. And I’m going to keep reaching out to  them to fix this for good.  Because the American people are weary of perpetual partisanship and  brinksmanship. This is America, and in America, we don’t careen from one  manufactured crisis to another. We make smart choices. We plan. We prioritize.  So I’m going to push through this paralysis and keep fighting for the real  challenges facing middle-class families. I’m going to keep pushing for  high-quality preschool for every family that wants it, and make sure the minimum  wage becomes a wage you can live on. I’m going to keep pushing to fix our  immigration system, repair our transportation system, and keep our children safe  from gun violence.  That’s the work you elected me to do. That’s what I’m focused on every single  day.

[What I’m not telling you:  Oh, but it is necessary!  Every obamunist has the ultimate goal of economically destroying whatever country he rules!!  To that end, this MANUFACTURED financial, economic crisis is but one method we adhere to!  We use these crises to cause civil unrest among the welfareRAT class of–as Rush Limbaugh‘s labelled them–‘low-information’ voters.  The obamunists are famous for denegrating every class of American  citizen on their way to economic, financial, medical, personal control of every facet of ‘the individual!’ 

    I don’t intend to re-hash every point I repeated from my teleprompter!  Quite frankly…. I have golf games to  play; airplane rides to take to said golf games!!

Suffice it to say: 

“There’s much more pissin’n’moanin’ to come!!”

BUT…. wouldn’t it be kinda-cool if I cancelled the federal ‘credit card’ for Secretary John Forbes-Heinz-Kerry‘s “Air Force Twenty-Seven” or whatever it is, while he’s in one of those third-world rathole, terrorist-muslim countries?!?  Whad’da’hoot that’d be!!

OH….. about that ‘gun violence‘ thingie:  Did ya see how many rednecks showed up in Albany to protest New York’s SAFE Act which all-but outlaws semi-automatic handguns with their inclusion of a severely restricted magazine capacity (ONLY 7 rounds!!).  It’s been reported (probably minimized by the kuu-mow {Cuomo} media) that upwards of 12,000 Bibles, Pick-ups and American Flags showed up to protest!!  Soon will come the class-actions!!  Much as I’m wont to do; Young Andy Cuomo (kuu-mow) was ‘missing in action!!’]
