Why is Barack Obama and the Democrats not doing the will of “We the People”?
Obama and his poll numbers are coming to realize that it’s not easy being green, nor is it what the majority of the people want as compared to creating jobs and reducing taxes.
Hey Barack Obama, Democrats and 8 Turncoat Republicans, here are some poll numbers you can believe in. 56% of Americans are not willing to pay higher taxes and utility costs (ie. cap and trade) to fight so-called global warming. America is starting to get informed and have wizened up to the tax and spend liberal socialism of the Obama Administration. Is it any wonder why The One’s poll numbers continue to slide. America gave Obama the benefit of the doubt and wanted this President to succeed; however, Socialism and high taxes in the teeth of a recession is not what they bargained for.
Fifty-six percent (56%) of Americans say they are not willing to pay more in taxes and utility costs to generate cleaner energy and fight global warming.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, taken since the climate change bill was passed on Friday, finds that 21% of Americans are willing to pay $100 more per year for cleaner energy and to counter global warming. Only 14% are willing to pay more than that amount.
As US unemployment rates rise to 9.5% and headed to over 10%, Obama continues his taxing ways in the teeth of a recession as 467,000 lost jobs in June 2009. Also, consumer confidence is also down as Americans see no viable change with this President. 42% of Americans had already stated that “Cap & Trade” would harm the economy while only 15% said it would have no impact, yet he continues down the green, black hole.
Here are some more poll numbers from a recent Rasmussen Report that were conducted after passage of the “cap and trade” tax bill that Democrats might want to ponder for the upcoming 2010 midterm elections
- Fifty-two percent (52%) of all adults say it is more important to keep the cost of energy as low as possible than it is to develop clean, environmentally friendly sources of energy.
- Sixty-three percent (63%) rate creating jobs as more important than taking steps to stop global warming.
How out of touch is this White House with the plight of the American people? Obama has one agenda and one only, to create a Nanny, socialist government that people are dependent on at all cost. He claims to create jobs, that are simply not there. How else can one explain ignoring the will of the people, nationalizing private industry and continually raising taxes during a recession as more and more Americans become unemployed.
It is safe to say that the only thing green with Obama is … his economic policies.
