OBAMA APPLAUDS HIS NEW PARTY ON GOING FOR BROKE!
The House of Representatives and the Senate moved merrily forward toward their decimation of the U.S. economy in a party-line vote in favor on Obama’s break-the-bank budget this week. Only 20 House Democrats voted against the measure, with many Blue Dog conservatives still acquiescing to the Administration’s massive social engineering expenditures which result in a staggering debt to be paid for by generations to come.
Although a new coalition of “moderate” Senate Democrats emerged in March, many of these members voted in favor of the budget excesses, with minor adjustments intended to ‘save face’ in their home states. Even the much-touted ‘small change’ middle class tax cuts expire in the 2010 budget, leading observers to wonder just what these Senators ‘hope’ to claim credit for with their constituents back home.
In a first show of party unity this year, all GOP voted against the budget, including Senators Specter, Collins and Snowe, who until now have aligned with the Pelosi driven flurry of Socialist engineered “Change” laws. It remains to be seen where their loyalties will lie when the particulars in the budget return to the floor for final decisions – particularly related to massive Health Care and Energy programs yet to be finalized.
Estimates are that Obama’s new Energy Plan, alone, will cost the average American household $3,000 to $4,000 annually in added utility costs. His Health Care Plan remains fraught with special interest advantages, combined with federally-regulated mandates to trim diagnostic tests while increasing cost-saving regulations to increase “hopeless cause” diagnosis-thus reducing the quality and coverage of U.S. Health Care overall, especially affecting senior citizens. Overall advantages of his plan would be afforded to illegal aliens with the Federal government floating their health care costs.
Although it currently lays on the cutting room floor, some credit is due House Minority Whip Eric Cantor for steering a more sensible GOP Budget Plan, which would have trimmed back the gluttonous spending of the already passed OMNIBUS and HR 1 Stimulus Plan. While given no substantial attention by Obama-controlled MainStreamMedia, the careful crafting of these alternative Republican budget proposals debunks the Democrat’s propaganda campaign that has falsely disclaimed GOPers in Congress to be no more than negative naysayers.
As with all legislation so far flying through the 111th Congress, achieving this appearance of a Budget consensus, due diligence and fair reflection were swept under the rug. Only 55 Senators voted for the budget while rule shuffling allowed for its passage with a simple majority of 51.
The only good news on the Budget blueprint are signs of minor cracks in Democratic cohesion and the emergence of greater GOP unity and clarity. These indicate growing Capitol Hill apprehension on Obama’s Break America Plan.
Expanded public awareness of the dangers and deceits in this unprecedented New Party takeover of our nation, combined with Activist Actions on Congress -lcould continue to erode Pelosi’s stranglehold on Congress. That’s up to US!
This week’s passage of the revisionist budget blueprint is just one step in a longer term battle whose outcome will show whether We the People take back our government or let it overtake US. The emerging crisis conditions within America’s overburdened, no-longer-represented mainstream middle class needs to move US from shock and outrage to Get Involved and make our voices heard in online, in the media and in Washington, D.C.
