Obama’s Budget Plan Will Destroy Us All

with 8 comments

The Louisiana Purchase cost the United States $15,000,000 and for that money we got 828,000 square miles.  With the amount of money that Obama is spending on his budget we could buy approximately 9,660,000,000,000,000 square miles from the French Government.  However, we’re not getting land.   We’re simply getting a budget that will destroy us all.

George Bush has been getting a lot of blame lately, but I wonder if even he could have foreseen how irresponsible Obama would be.  You can be sure that he wouldn’t have spent the large surplus he inherited from Bill Clinton if he knew that the next President would turn out to be such a big time spender.  Bush was counting on having a reasonable and intelligent successor who would be thrifty.  That’s why his Harvard Business School educated mind decided to bite the bullet and give tax cuts to the wealthiest individuals in our country.  Instead, we now have Obama trying to bungle his way to prosperity.

Let’s talk about those rich folks who are being taxed so unfairly.   There is a horrible misconception that these people are super wealthy, but they’re not.  These are the people you see everyday in your condo, playing tennis at your club, or in your board meeting.  They are lawyers, plastic surgeons, NBA point guards, shipping magnates, self-storage company owners, and hedge fund managers.  A family making $350,000 a year would see their tax bill rise by as much as $4600.  That $4600 would pay for 1/4 of a car.   Maybe not for the parent, but surely for a teenager.  Hedgefund managers would actually see their income tax rate go from 15% to 39.6% as their income would be treated as income instead of capital gains.  This is an outrage.

George Bush worked very hard to raise the standard of living.  The rich saw their incomes increase under Bush and that’s as it should be.  The top 1% of the country pays 40% of the nation’s taxes and that is despite only owning about 48% of the country’s property.  This hardly seems fair to me.  By reversing Bush’s tax cuts Obama is sending us back to the horrible economic times of the Clinton administration.

George Bush was a man of God.  He knew that this country would be spared from all natural disasters if we just prayed hard enough.  Bush knew that with God on our side there was never any reason to set aside money for natural disasters.   Obama has put $20 billion aside for natural disasters.  God has protected us the past 8 years President Obama.  Why isn’t that good enough for you?  I guess that’s what you get when you go to church services about how whitey is keeping you down instead of about how Jesus is lifting you up.

George Bush was always finding ways to stretch a dime.  Do you know how much the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cost US tax payers?  $50 billion? $100 billion? $500 billion?  Try 0.  George Bush never had to add the wars to the budget because he knew he could just take the money from some other program.  Iraq was probably just fought with waste he trimmed off of the PBS budget.  Obama after crying about the wars Bush had us fighting immediately jacks up the spending on them.  Instead of Bush’s free wars, Obama is spending $50 billion.  I hope they’re using gold plated bullets at that price.  Its time for Republicans to take a stand against this kind of wasteful spending.

  1. Nate, while it is true that God has protected Chicago for 8 years, people in Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Kansas, and Arkansas probably don’t feel very protected. If I were you, however, I wouldn’t print this message. Some liebrals and dumocrats are going to notice that all the tornadoes and hurricanes hit red states.

  2. Oh, we already noticed that God seems to hate the red states lately.

  3. Tornadoes aren’t natural disasters, they’re just Gods way of blowing us a kiss.

  4. It seems so wrong that Obama is trying to undo all of Bush’s hard work…..at the expense of the rich. Nobody remembers who came in second place (the middle class) or third (welfare cheats). Why can’t this country celebrate the winners for once? It’s like it’s a crime to be successful.

  5. That’s what America’s about. We can all aspire to be successful and if you can’t do it through hard work, there’s always the lottery or game shows like that Slumdog Millionare kid from India.

  8. God and Zhirinovsky? Hmmm. With help from FOXNEWS, the right-right-wing will patently reside in the lunatic fringe forever.

    At the expense of the RICH!!! lol The PRC is holding the tab and they are getting impatient. Starting wars and giving wealth to the wealthy (a.k.a. Bush tax cuts) has brought America closer to its end. Bush will be regarded by ANY intelligent, informed person as a catastrophic failure. If any of you ARE the wealthy, Obama is trying to stop the hordes from burning down your houses.
