Obama Refuses to Pay Social Security, Vets, Military, and Interest Even Though He has the Money

Obama Refuses to Pay Social Security, Vets, Military, and the interest on the debt even though he has more than enough money for all of them, to include Medicare and Medicaid!

Obama is playing politics with social security checks for senior citizens. That's the bottom line. He has 200 billion dollars a month to spend, and social security costs only 49 billion a month.

The only conclusion: Obama hates grandma and grandpa and is blackmailing them.

If you were alive in 1996, try to think back and remember who got blamed for the government shutdown that year. Hint, it wasn’t the party of the president then, it was the party of the House of Representatives.

Only time will tell but I have a gut feeling that it's different this time.

Obama wants to cut military pay but not his own.

Everything he does is anti-old people. I’m waiting for him to sign an executive order for “assisted suicide to anyone on Medicare”..and/or., no more than 3 days on life support”...which would be the massive majority.

How about not issuing food stamps and welfare instead?

Shut down the Department of Education, the EPA, and such first!

The department of education does absolutely nothing that is important. It should be the first shut down. EPA is a close second.

They got blamed but it was a wash when it came to public opinion.

Here's the problem in this one ~ we already know Obama is stupid and the MSM is venal.

Together they've tried to peddle the story that the elderly are easily persuaded to lick the hand of their benefactor, presuming Obama is their benefactor.

You see that same belief expressed on FR all the time ~ that people who "get gub'mnt money" will dance like trained dogs for whoever controls the checks.

Actually the belief is false. Secondly the people who get Social Security paid into the system and they believe it to be their own money. They believe that whether or not you do or not ~ they do and that's what's important.

Obama stepped on his crank yesterday by telling us that this also involved "checks for veterans".

Hmm ~ checks for veterans ~ for what? Disability? Retirees? Everybody who'd been in the military?

Obama wants to stop our checks ~ and it sounds so much like "Shovel Ready Jobs" ~ all those checks are direct deposit these days ~ so someone might ask how he intends to do this ~

Obama has no idea how things work and he's at least half a century behind current financial systems just in looking at the mechanics if not the implications.

He even imagines there's an unlimited amount of money out there to borrow to pay the bills ~ probably think he can simply print it up. Hey, we have Freepers who think you can just print money too ~ they fear it but their belief is that's where money comes from these days. Of course, some does, but most money comes from instruments of credit! It usually never achieves physical form.

If I was Boehner I’d walk into the Oval Office with Cantor and crew for a little sitdown and I’d pull out that hokey pokey birth cerificate of Barry’s and ask him how he’d like Darryl Issa to start calling experts to the stand to analyze it for validity. I have a feeling the log jam would clear in a hurry.

Did the House lose in the 2006 or 2008 elections?

Because that would severely set back the stealth reparations program and who wants Al and Jesse starting up their shenanigans again?

What do you mean “he” has the money. No, “he” doesn’t have a dime. The money belongs to “We, the people.”

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD IN SUPPORT OF OUR MILITARY! THANKS!

Know any members of the military at home or overseas who did not get to vote during the previous elections? For example, didn’t receive their ballot on time in order to be returned on time? Please pass this link along for them to share their experience. Thanks!

*******************

We hope you will join The Band of Mothers in Washington DC on the Cannon Bldg Corner (corner of New Jersey & Independence Ave), July 25th, 26th and 27th, from 9a, to 5pm. We take this stand in Support of Our Troops and Their Mission and in opposition to this President's recent announcement to significantly draw down troop levels in the heat of the battle season! We are extremely grateful to our Troops for the safety they have provided to us since 9/11 and we are extremely concerned about their safety as this draw down takes place. Not only has their Commander-in-Chief told the enemy when the draw down will take place, he also announced to the enemy exactly how many troops he will pull out.

General Allen stated “The option of this President was not the option of his Generals.” War is not community organizing and this President should listen to the recommendations of the Generals and senior military on the ground! The welfare and morale of our troops are at stake here as well as the success of their mission! So many Americans and Afghans have given their lives to beat this ruthless enemy and there is no doubt that their sacrifices have kept us safe! Getting this mission right should be this President's priority, not poll numbers and his re-election.

Lastly, The Band of Mothers stand in support of the release of our Soldiers incarcerated at Leavenworth. As has been reported, we are allowing terrorists to sign a Pledge and then we release them (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/24/world/asia/24reconcile.html?src=mv.) or now, we just let them go:
(http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/post/obamas-terrorist-catch-and-release-policy/2011/07/06/gIQALpxb0H_blog.html).

Let our Sons go too! They certainly deserve and should be shown the same forgiveness and treatment afforded to the terrorists.

We hope you will join us on the Cannon Building Corner on July 25th, 26th and 27th, from 9am to 5pm. Location: the corner of New Jersey & Indepence Avenue, Washignton, DC.

Thank You
Beverly Perlson
