During B. Hussein Obama’s appearance on “Meet the Press”, Sunday, May 4th, he talked about how rich nations are hording and not releasing food to poorer nations, which are causing riots. Isn’t it just like a dishonest liberal denying the true cause for food shortage the liberal ethanol gas fiasco! Obama plans to soak the American taxpayer and make them to pay for global feel-good liberal garbage.
Not just a campaign promise. Obama sponsored Senate Bill 2433, the Global Poverty Act of 2007. It “requires the President to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the U.S. foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty, and – reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide, between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.” This would impose a global tax on the American taxpayer of an additional .7% of GDP spent on foreign aid, above what is already spent.
Obama will not only soak the American taxpayer to pay for global entitlement programs but plans to steal as much earned income as he can. Obama, and Hillary, plan to end the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts even though a plethora of experts report taxpayers will suffer the largest tax increase in American history. Larger than the Bubba Clinton tax increase! Experts estimate that the repeal of the tax cuts will raise taxes an average of $1,544 for more than 100 million Americans and cost a married couple with an income of $40,000 and two children $1,933 annually.
Obama supported the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2007 (S 2191), which will cost the taxpayer a billions. This bill will force large increases in energy prices. The cost of electricity prices are estimated to increase 35% to 65% within seven years and cause the net loss of 1.5 million to 3.4 million manufacturing jobs by 2020.
Obama supported the minimum wage legislation the liberal congress passed after gaining control in 2006. Another failed liberal program that contributed to the current economic slow down. It failed to raise unemployment and actually condemned many to chronic unemployment. It forced increases in the costs of unskilled and inexperienced labor, which decreased job opportunity. Employers were forced to pay additional cost of Social Security taxes, unemployment and worker’ compensation levies, paid holidays and in some cases workers’ health insurance costs.
As a state senator Obama voted against a measure that would have expanded the penalties for some gang activity to include the death penalty. He voted against banning partial birth abortions, promoted homosexual legal civil unions, voted against declaring English as the official language of the US Government, supported comprehensive immigration legislation that would give illegal immigrants a chance for citizenship and voted against raising the estate-tax exemption to $5 million.
The truth is Obama is not offering “Change”. He is offering more liberal programs that tax American taxpayer more and more, while destroying the values that strengthen the American family. Obama (and Hillary) is a danger to a free and prosperous America.
