Obama Threatens Social Security and Military Pay for Politics

Posted by madjillmom on January 14, 2013

It is known that the Obama Administration can pay all Social Security checks and all Military pay even if the debt ceiling is not raised. Yet, today, Obama came out, on schedule to threaten that Social Security checks and Military pay will be delayed.

Will someone in the press actually challenge this? Will they ask if green energy subsidies and Obamaphones be delayed?

Borrow more or I will stop the checks to the old people! Social Security will go out, soldiers will be paid. This is al about scaring the American people. This is all about making the Republicans the evil people who want old people to eat dog food. This is ridiculous.

Obama Does a Do Over Budget

Posted by madjillmom on April 11, 2011

Earlier this year, Pres. Obama proposed a budget for 2012.  It contained no spending cuts, offered up more “investment”, ignored Obama’s own Deficit Commission recommendations, and did nothing to even touch the entitlement programs that will send us to our doom.  Obama would make some speeches that said we had to do something about those entitlements, but when it was time for him to lead, he just wanted to keep spending at the same rate he has for the last two years.  This would reflect an increase in discretionary spending at 80% above the 2008 rate.  Even some Dems questioned his leadership in this area.

Then the last two weeks happened.  Paul Ryan took an honest stab at fixing the problems.  He wasn’t instantly vaporized.  The Speaker Boehner won the game of government shutdown politics.  While the Dems were running around screaming that Republicans hate women, Boehner was winning.  Yes, it should have been more, but a win it was.

Now comes Obama with a new and improved budget proposal.  Likely it won’t be anything great, but make no doubt about it, he was forced to this position by Republicans and that racist Tea Party.  It will feature higher taxes and cuts in the military.  Whatever it does to Social Security and Welfare will be only minimal tweaks just so they can say they are doing something.  Obama’s do-over will be heavy on rhetoric and short on real changes that might take us in the right direction.

Republicans and Conservatives are winning this debate.

Quit whining and starve the Beast!!

Social Security Scare

Posted by madjillmom on August 16, 2010

Over the last few days, I have begun to see the Dems talking about Republicans wanting to privatize Social Security.  I believe there is no Republican currently even speaking on Social Security. The Dems are using the 75th birthday of Social Security to scare the elderly into worrying about the Republicans plan for Social Security.  Since Obamacare sent them away, the Dems need to use Social Security scare tactics to herd them back into the corral.

Going to a Tea Party

Posted by madjillmom on April 13, 2009

My husband and I are making plans to attend a Tea Party protest.  I have at least 4 or 5 within a 100 mile radius to choose from.  I believe we will be attending the Bryan/College Station event on Wed.  I don’t think I will have any time to make any signs.   

The far left of the spectrum is starting to get scared of this whole thing.  They should.  They are denigrating the events as a product of a “vast right wing conspiracy”.  This movement is grass-roots.  There isn’t enough coordination.  That is easy to see from trying to decide which one to go to.  You have to go several places to make sure the info is correct.  If this were an effort of established forces, it would be easier to figure out.  This rant is the new diversion tactic.  Don’t go and see for yourself, you are just a tool of the conservative nut jobs.  I do know the left is going to try to disrupt the events and make the movement look silly or crazy.  I do know the MSM won’t cover these with the same efforts they cover every left wing or anti-war protest.  That is a shame.  Hope to see many people wherever we decide to go.

Fiscal Responsibility Summit and Rep. Charlie Rangel

Posted by madjillmom on February 23, 2009

Pres. Obama just came out to let us know how things went at the Financial Responsibility Summit today. He told us all how they brainstormed, how his people took copious notes, and how they will get back to us with real plans on the other “crisis” issues of the day. Those being Social Security, Tax Reform and Healthcare. They will then distribute the notes to the participants. Now the participants are bloviating about what a great meeting they had. Now to add real Financial Responsibility, Rep. Charles Rangel is speaking. This is so riduculous. Why would Pres. Obama call on him with the cloud of tax problems and ethics problems he has now. Why would I trust anything that comes out of a Summit that allow Charlie Rangel to participate?

The market is down 250 points today. Several times they have all broken out in laughter. I wonder what is so funny.
