Skip to comments.President's Laughable Fiscal Plan Called “Will of the People”
Posted on 12/01/2012 10:22:53 AM PST by John Semmens
So-called negotiations to avert going over the fiscal cliff got off to an unpromising start when Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's presentation of President Obama's plan generated audible laughter from GOP leaders. The plan calls for a tax increase of $1.6 trillion and elimination of the limits on federal government debt. In exchange for these concessions the President offers to consider whether some sort of entitlement reform might be undertaken at an unspecified future date if he deems it warranted.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) quickly labeled the plan ludicrous and irresponsible, likening it to a demand from a drug addict for an increase in his allowance and access to a no-limit credit card. This is not a serious offer for dealing with the nation's economic problems, McConnell complained. It's a recipe for disaster.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest characterized the Senator's reaction as sour grapes. The GOP had their opportunity to make the case for lower taxes and spending restraint during the campaign, Earnest pointed out. If their guy had won they'd have a case for insisting on a fiscally responsible budget. But he didn't. Rather than rehashing a rejected message they ought to be cooperating with the President's efforts to implement the will of the people.

He might as well as Congress to dissolve and let him rule by decree.
As Obama kills the American Way, it will become the last Will and Testament of the American people.
I notice you didn’t have to change one word from reality for this to read like satire.
Where is the satire?
This is nothing but the factual news.
Oops. They killed our children. And at a time when America suffers from its lowest birth rate in its history, Obama proposes to use the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act to kill at least twice as many babies yet unborn as Americans now kill, not including any of the innumerable American babies he plans to poison to death immediately after their conceptions. So who yet may survive to inherit the debt?
Obama is insane and full of hate. He will take us down in flames.
Euphemisms R Us!
“...only those who pay taxes should be allowed to vote.”
Amen to that, brother.
