Tea Party was voted in to Congress to fight against Obamacare in 2010. They are doing just that; what a novel idea to actually pursue your campaign promises that got you elected. Can Obama claim the same?
Here is Larry Elder breaking it down for you.
Mr. Obama has made the far left pretty happy (even if they whine otherwise), but as far as "uniting the country" and "cutting the deficit in half during his first two years" - those promises look no closer to being fulfilled today than they did five years ago.
The media doesn't hold Democrats to task the same way they do Republicans - it's just that simple. Imagine what would the media would do if a GOP Senator had said:
"“The problem is, is that the way (blank) has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents. Number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic!”
...and then was elected president and did THE EXACT SAME THING BUT WORSE!!! You got it - they would be calling for impeachment.
I believe we are at the edge looking down into the abyss. And there are MANY to blame for having brought us to this place in History.
One thing for sure though is that if we do not learn how to reach compromise on critical issues between both parties, we will all go over the cliff...together. Pointing fingers as we descend into the deep dark bottomless inevitability of a bankrupt society will only show we were a people who could not measure up to the greatness that was, for a time, well within our grasp.
Andy, Opie,and aunt Bee has left the world for ever! Lock your doors and windows... Slept with a loaded gun under your pillow. That's what this world has come to. In my humble opinion it started with "WELFARE". NO one is to lazy to steal anymore, they've got their gov'ment check!
It's a shame, shame, shame...
Sheran: for some reason I got a "video content blocked" message from youtube when I tried to play it.
Our citizenry has ceased to be too proud to accept a handout.
In the earliest days of welfare people both black and white were ashamed of having to go to the State for assistance.
Now we have legions of second and third generation "project" residents who brag about their checks and stamps.
...but speaking of spending, a bunch of folks who support the Tea Party opened their wallets recently and spent a few bucks for the cause:
"Donations to the Senate Conservatives Fund soared in September as the political action committee helped push a conservative rebellion in Congress to dismantle President Obama's health care law, a campaign report filed Friday shows.
The political action committee raised more $2.1 million last month, its best fundraising haul of the year. More than 90% of its donations came in amounts of $200 or less. In all, it has collected $5.6 million so far (this year)."
I especially like this part:
More than 90% of its donations came in amounts of $200 or less.
Perhaps - as Howard Beale exhorted - the people are finally GETTING MAD.
