A Delusional San Fran Nan Pelosi Denies Federal Deficit Is Due To Spending Problem … “It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem”
More genius from the LEFT …
This morning on FOX News Sunday, former Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told Chris Wallace “it was almost a false argument to say the US has a spending problem.” That is correct, San Fran Nan actually said that the US did not have a spending problem. She not only said it once, she said it twice. Yea, no spending problem, that’s why the federal deficit has been over a trillion dollars every year since Obama has been in office. Could some one explain to me how these people are elected?
From The Hill:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday called sequestration “a bad idea all around” and urged a balance of spending cuts and closed tax loopholes to avoid it.
Pelosi rebuffed GOP calls for the sequester replacement to focus exclusively on targeting more spending cuts and entitlement reforms.
“It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address,” she told Fox News’s Chris Wallace on Sunday.
Pelosi added that the deficit and debt are at “immoral levels” and “must be reduced.”
“It isn’t as much a spending problem as much as it is priorities,” she said, arguing that tax subsidies were a better target than additional cuts that could hit programs such as education.
A recent FOX News poll indicated that 83% of Americans think that the federal government has a spending problem. Um, how did Obama win reelection again? How does Pelosi come up with such an idiotic statement and actually keep a straight face? Could the Botox have finally got to her brain, the Lonely Conservative seems to think so and with all that plastic surgery, it’s rather easy to keep a straight face. BTW House Minority Leader Pelosi, with all the money that we have spent on education, it has failed our children.

Obama White House Releases Letters from Little Kids Pleading for Gun Control … Would they Do the Same About the Debt?
Mmm, mmm, mmm, Barack Hussein Obama … This is nothing more than moral blackmail.
The “Exploiter” in Chief’s White House has released a letter from children pleading for gun control. Really Mr. President, is this the length of your grasp of the issue? You use children’s words because it plays into your anti-2nd Amendment, “imperial” president agenda? Just curious, would Obama release letters from children that criticize him for his deficit spending and year after year $1 trillion spending that has inflated the national debt to over $16 trillion? The debt is going to affect all future children, grand children and great grand children as opposed to the few who would ever be exposed to assault weapons. What about the lack of any job growth plan that has caused children’s parents to be continually on unemployment and food stamps? So I ask you America, who is more dangerous to our children, assault weapons or Barack Obama’s socialist, big government out of control spending agenda?
From The Weekly Standard:
The White House today released letters from little kids pleading for gun control, just hours before President Obama is to release a comprehensive proposal to limit guns and ammunition. The letters were released to the Associated Press in what appears to be a coordinated effort to help shape the narrative the day of Obama’s announcement.
“Three days after six teachers and 20 students were killed by a rampaging gunman at their elementary school in Newtown, Conn., an 8-year-old from Maryland pulled out a sheet of paper and asked President Barack Obama for ‘some changes in the laws with guns,’” the AP reports.
“It’s a free country but I recommend there needs (to) be a limit with guns,” Grant wrote in a letter dated Dec. 17. “Please don’t let people own machine guns or other powerful guns like that.”
In the days after the shooting, children around the country had the same idea as Grant. They put their feelings about the massacre on paper and sent those letters to a receptive White House.
“I am writing to ask you to STOP gun violence,” wrote Tajeah, a 10-year-old from Georgia. “I am very sad about the children who lost their lives. So, I thought I would write to you to STOP gun violence.”
Maybe the Children who wrote to the president and are going to stand behind Obama when he puts forth his 19 executive orders today might want to learn the way in which a law is actually passed. As stated above, what if the children wrote Obama criticising Obamacare or Obama’s out of control debt? What if the children of America spoke out against Obama’s big government socialism and tax and spend policies? Any chance they would be released to the public?

President Barack Obama Says “US Is Not Deadbeat Nation” …Misses Deadline for Sending Budget to Congress after Continued $1 Trillion Deficit Spending
LION LYING KING: President Barack Obama is once again playing divisive, misrepresentative, fear, blame games … says “US is not a Deadbeat Nation”.
No, we are not a deadbeat nation, we have a deadbeat President in office. Barack Obama is claiming that the US will default on their debt if the debt ceiling is not raised. YOU LIE. We will not default, all that will occur is that new spending will be halted. Something that needs to happen. What a joke this president is. Just after he says that the US is not a deadbeat nation, Obama missed the deadline to sending a budget to Congress. Who is the deadbeat, Mr. President? To date, Obama has yet to have any budget passed by Congress. When Obama was Senator Obama in 2006. he stated that raising the debt limit was “a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills”. So what’s the difference now, oh, he is now president. Sorry America, but Barack Obama’s presidential spending spree is the definition of a deadbeat. Obama is not saying that by extending the debt limit, he is paying for current debt. He is doing this to tack more wasteful spending on to a credit card that he never intends to pay back. That my friend is the definition of a deadbeat.
The “Deadbeat” President
The Frontpage Magazine reported the following:
1. In 2006, Obama said that raising the debt limit was “a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies”.
Now failing to raise the debt limit and not pay the bills using financial assistance from foreign governments to finance his reckless fiscal policies is a sign that America can’t pay its own bills. By which he means his bills.
2. When you run up this high a debt, then you are a deadbeat. Turning the national numbers into a family income, Obama’s spending spree is the equivalent of a family with a $21,700 annual income running up $16,500 in new debt to be added to $142,710 in existing credit card debt.
If that’s not the definition of a deadbeat, I don’t know what is.
3. It’s not America’s debt. It’s America’s debt the way that it’s your debt when the bellboy runs up illegal charges on your credit card. And here the bellboy is accusing the hotel of being deadbeats unless they let him run up a lot more charges on the country’s credit card.
4. Obama isn’t proposing that America pay the bills, but that it borrow even more money that he doesn’t intend to pay back either.
Remember when Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was unpatriotic … Why is it different for Obama’s nearly $6 trillion?
Why is it different for Obama and why is the MSM not holding his feat to the fire and pointing out the obvious double talk? Obama is the most divisive and misrepresentative president we have ever had and when you call him on it, one is branded a racists. Some one best call him out and stop his destruction of the United States before its too late and we do not have a country to save. Seriously America, how simple is this for you to understand? If all a credit card company did was increase your limit whenever you went over, you would never get serious and pay down your debt, you would just keep spending until the next increase. Until eventually you have such an insurmountable debt that could never be paid.
Unemployment Ticks up to 7.8%, a Meager 155K Jobs Created, Debt at $16.4 Trillion and Obama is on Vacation
WELCOME TO THE NEW OBAMA JOBS NORMAL …
The Obama jobs recovery still pathetic … only 155,000 jobs created in December 2012 and the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.8%. Get used to it America, this is what you wanted and this is what you are going to get. The reelection of Barack Obama will mean more of the same, a lackluster economy and a $16.4 trillion debt and getting higher every second. We have more people on unemployment longer than ever before. Its almost like being on unemployment is an Obama job. We have more people on food stamps and disabilities than ever before. Jobs be damned. This is what you voted for, more of the same. Don’t worry America, your president is hard at work fixing the problem. NOT! Actually he flew off to Hawaii again for yet another vacation but not after raising taxes.
U.S. employers added 155,000 jobs in December, a steady gain that shows hiring held up during tense fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington.
The solid job growth wasn’t enough to push down the unemployment rate, which stayed 7.8 percent last month, according to the Labor Department’s report Friday. November’s rate was revised higher from an initially reported 7.7 percent.
Stock futures rose modestly after the report was released.
Robust hiring in manufacturing and construction fueled the December gains. Construction firms added 30,000 jobs, the most in 15 months. That likely reflects additional hiring needed to rebuild after Superstorm Sandy and also solid gains in home building that have contributed to a housing recovery.
Manufacturers gained 25,000, the most in nine months.
Even with the gains, hiring is far from accelerating. Employers added an average of 153,000 jobs a month last year, matching the monthly average in 2011. Employers added 1.84 million jobs in 2012, the same as the previous year.
Who is to blame for this America, Republican politicians, Democrats, Independents? No … you are America, you were foolish enough to reelect Obama and create a czar.
The fiscal cliff bill was supposed to save the middle class from tax hikes and was supposed to only punish the so-called rich. At least that is what was said by Obama and Democrats. Since when has Obama ever told America the truth? As reported at Bloomberg, the bill that passed the US Senate today will increase taxes on 77.1% of American households.
The budget deal passed by the U.S. Senate today would raise taxes on 77.1 percent of U.S. households, mostly because of the expiration of a payroll tax cut, according to preliminary estimates from the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington.
More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said. A 2 percent payroll tax cut, enacted during the economic slowdown, is being allowed to expire as of yesterday.
The heaviest new burdens in 2013, compared with 2012, would fall on top earners, who would face higher rates on income, capital gains, dividends and estates. The top 1 percent of taxpayers, or those with incomes over $506,210, would pay an average of $73,633 more in taxes.
Much of that burden is concentrated at the very top of the income scale.
The top 0.1 percent of taxpayers, those with incomes over about $2.7 million, would pay an average of $443,910 more, reducing their after-tax incomes by 8.4 percent. They would pay 26 percent of the additional taxes imposed by the legislation.
Among households with incomes between $500,000 and $1 million, taxes would go up by an average of $14,812.
Another Obamaination … Wasn’t the point of passing a bill to save us from the fiscal cliff supposed to lower federal deficits and the national debt?
As reported at The Hill, the US Senate deal to avoid the “fiscal cliff” will add roughly $4 trillion to the deficit when compared to current law, according to new numbers from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). What a complete an utter joke. The CBO says the Senate budget agreement will lead to an overall increase in spending of about $330 billion over 10 years. How does this save us from the fiscal cliff? This is what happens when you add a tax on the so-called rich as some means of fixing the problem, when it was nothing more than a lie from Obama and Democrats. Spending cuts need to be made and changes in SS, Medicare/Medicaid and other entitlement programs..
The CBO determined Tuesday that the package, hammered out late Monday evening by Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would — over the next decade — come with a $3.9 trillion price tag.
The agreement, which is pending before the House after passing in a 89-8 Senate vote early Tuesday, would extend lower tax rates on annual household income under $450,000 and postpone automatic spending cuts for two months.
The extension of lower tax rates for a bulk of the nation’s taxpayers and the addition of a permanent patch to the alternative minimum tax would add roughly $3.6 trillion to the deficit over the next decade, the CBO said. Other individual, business, and energy tax extenders would add another $76 billion.
Any Republican who votes for this needs to be primary challenged in 2014. This is all just a bad joke and you made it happen America last November by reelection Barack Obama. I hope you are proud of yourselves.
Early this morning the US Senate passed a “fiscal cliff” plan that was all tax kikes and no spending cuts by a vote of 89-8. The only nay votes were Bennet (D-CO), Carper (D-DE), Grassley (R-IA), Harkin (D-IA), Lee (R-UT), Paul (R-KY), Rubio (R-FL), Shelby (R-AL). The following did not vote, DeMint (R-SC), Kirk (R-IL), Lautenberg (D-NJ). This bill was all taxes and no spending cuts. Hardly a balanced approach that was claimed by Obama. As reported at Breitbart, FISCAL CLIFF DEAL: $1 IN SPENDING CUTS FOR EVERY $41 IN TAX INCREASES!!!
According to the Congressional Budget Office, the last-minute fiscal cliff deal reached by congressional leaders and President Barack Obama cuts only $15 billion in spending while increasing tax revenues by $620 billion—a 41:1 ratio of tax increases to spending cuts.
The grossly imperfect bill was supposed to prevent the US from going over the so-called fiscal cliff; however, it does not grow the economy, lower the debt or prevent taxes on the middle class. Get ready middle class for an increase in taxes as the final deal did not include an extension of the payroll tax holiday.
Under the compromise arrangement, taxes would rise on income above $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for households, while exemptions and deductions the wealthiest Americans use to reduce their tax bill would face new limits. The accord would also raise the taxes paid on large inheritances from 35% to 40% for estates over $5 million. And it would extend by one year unemployment benefits for some two million Americans. It would also prevent cuts in payments to doctors who treat Medicare patients and spare tens of millions of Americans who otherwise would have been hit with the Alternative Minimum Tax.
The middle class will still see its taxes go up: The final deal did not include an extension of the payroll tax holiday. And the overall package will deepen the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars by extending the overwhelming majority of the Bush tax cuts. Many Democrats had opposed those measures in 2001 and 2003. Obama agreed to extend them in 2010.
AMERICA, GET READY TO GET TAXED TO DEATH.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) Says No Fiscal Cliff Deal Tonight … “I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now”
Deal or no deal … it would appear that there is no deal.
As reported at the Washington Post, according to Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) there is no deal as of yet and he would be shocked if there would be tonight as the two sides are further apart than he had hoped. They truly plan on taking this down to the last second. Of course one has to wonder how Congress can be having a fiscal cliff negotiation when none of what they are discussing reduces the US debt. It’s all just about tax increases and punishing the so-called rich.
Asked as he left a meeting of the Senate Democratic caucus whether a deal would be struck today, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) replied: “No, I’d be shocked. I think the parties are much farther apart than I hoped they’d be by now, and that the country thought they’d be when negotiations started on Friday.”
Unbelievable … While American Workers Suffer & the US Spirals Out of Control with Spending … President Obama Gives Joe Biden and Congress a Raise
Bend over tax paying America, Obama is about to do it to “We the People” again. Then again, you elected him!
How ‘s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you America? As the United States spirals out of control due to government spending and a $16+ trillion debt … President Barack Obama gives VP Joe Biden and Congress a pay raise. As Americans struggle to create budgets and live within their means as Obamacare taxes are about to take affect in 2013 as well as the 2% payroll tax going bye-bye … Obama increases the government debt on tax payers with a pay raise for federal workers. As record number of Americans are on food stamps, record number of Americans are on disabilities and a record number of Americans are unemployed and left the work force completely … Obama does what he does best and acts as a community agitator and rewards federal workers at the expense of the private sector.
America, they are just laughing at you
President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden.
According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he’ll now make $231,900 per year.
Members of Congress, from the House and Senate, also will receive a little bump, as their annual salary will go from $174,000 to 174,900. Leadership in Congress, including the speaker of the House, will likewise get an increase.
As reported at The Weekly Standard, according to a senior Republican congressional aide who has reviewed the executive order and consulted with the Congressional Budget Office, Obama’s pay raise will cost $11 billion. “The CBO told us that the President’s pay raise for federal workers will cost $11 billion over ten years.”
This is how he [Obama] cares about you America. As he increases government workers pay, the median household income has dropped $4,520,or about one month’s average wages, since President Obama took office. As seen by the 2012 Presidential election, “There’s a sucker born every minute”.
Happy New Year America from Barack Obama … Turbo Tim Geithner Says US will hit $16.4 trillion debt limit? on New Year’s Eve
An early Happy News Year’s greetings from Barack Obama, according to Obama’s Treasury Secretary Turbo Tax Timmy Geithner, the United States will hit $16.4 trillion debt limit? on New Year’s Eve. Sadly, as the crystal ball drops in Time Square, NY ringing in the new year, the debt clock will be ringing in its own welcome to 2013 and $16.4 trillion. As Americans attempt to budget for 2013 and the impending fiscal cliff, Obamacare taxes and payroll taxes, Obama goes another year without a budget and more deficit spending.
The United States will reach its $16.4 trillion borrowing limit on Dec. 31 and undertake “extraordinary measures” to avoid default, the Treasury Department informed congressional leaders in a letter on Wednesday.
The notice about the debt ceiling came packaged with a stark warning from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who said the policy uncertainty stemming from the “fiscal cliff” makes it impossible for him to say with certainty how much time lawmakers have left to raise the borrowing cap.
“Given the significant uncertainty that now exists with regard to unresolved tax and spending policies for 2013, it is not possible to predict the effective duration of these measures,” Geithner wrote.
