Don't hold me to my word...I'm just they typical lying politician...SUCKERS!
Today, Obama held another photo-op and it was the same speech he has given for 15 months. He blamed Bush and then filled in the rest of the speech with lies. Same old speech, same old Obama rhetoric.
Obama mentions the $1.3 trillion deficit he inherited but didn’t mention how he added $1.4 trillion (2009 budget) and $1.6 trillion (2010 budget) to the deficit. Obama commonly forgets to mention this little nugget in his speeches.
Of course Obama had to bring up health care as one of the major causes of these deficits. Obama claims his ObamaCare will help reduce these deficits, despite the facts that show he is, and has been, lying.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and their actuaries, have released a report that informs us that ObamaCare will cost us $389 billion more than expect…14 million will lose their employer-provided health insurance and 4 million families will be hit with new taxes.
Obama will never speak of this in any speech. It is also being reported that Health and Human Service Secretary, Kathleen “I’m above paying taxes” Sebelius, hid the report until after the Democrats rammed ObamaCare through. Apparently Sebelius didn’t want this information to affect the vote.
Obama then had the nerve to speak about PAYGO…a law Democrats have continued to break.
“That’s why I asked Congress to restore the “pay as you go” rule. This rule says that Congress can’t spend a dollar on a new tax cut or entitlement program unless it saves a dollar elsewhere. It’s what helped lead to the balanced budgets of the 1990s. In fact, it was only by abandoning the “pay as you go” rule that record surpluses turned into record deficits during the course of a decade.”
Isn’t ObamaCare an entitlement program? So this mean that Democrats will have to SAVE $1 trillion elsewhere? Lies, lies and more lies.
Next lie was a doozy.
“Finally, I’ve proposed a freeze in government spending for three years. It won’t affect benefits through Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security.”
Obama has increased spending over these “3 years” and I believe one of the ways he claimed to pay for ObamaCare was by cutting $500 billion from Medicaid. Lies, lies and more lies.
Obama ended his lied-filled speech by talking about his appointment of a ‘Deficit Commission” that is supposed to give Obama ideas on how to cut the deficit. I got the best idea and I didn’t have to go around Congress to appoint a commission. STOP SPENDING!!! Wasn’t that easy???
We all know this ‘deficit commission’ is just a shield so Obama can raise taxes to pay for his record spending. Obama is nothing but smoke and mirrors and his lies are catching up.
Since taking office in February of 2009, Obama has passed the blame on everyone and refuses to take responsibility for anything. During his presidential campaign, Obama promised not to raise ANY TAXES on ANYONE making less than $250,000 a year.
Now that some in the press are asking about breaking this promise, Obama has to spin and appoint a strawman for his defense.
“Now, I have said that it’s important that we not restrict the review or recommendations of this commission in any way. Everything must be on the table. Of course, this will mean that our friends in the media will ask me and others once a week, or once a day, about what we are willing to rule in and what we are willing to rule out. It’s an old Washington game – and one that has made it all but impossible in the past for people to sit down and have an honest discussion about putting our country on a more secure fiscal footing. So my message is simple: we’re not playing the game. Because I want this commission to be free to do its work.”
This translated means: Holding me to my promises is just an old Washington game. It also translates to tax hikes and the European-style Value Added Tax. Obama has had many “read my lips” moments in 15 months.
