Obama: ‘Nobody Wants to Get Something for Nothing'

Obama: ‘Nobody Wants to Get Something for Nothing' By Terence P. Jeffrey May 29, 2012

(CNSNews.com) - Speaking Thursday afternoon in Newton, Iowa, President Barack Obama pitched his idea for $5 billion in new tax credits for companies that manufacture equipment—such as windmill blades and solar panels—for “clean energy” companies.

“Nobody wants a handout,” Obama said. “Nobody wants to get something for nothing.”

Obama was visiting TPI Composites, a company that manufactures blades for windmills, to pitch the fourth item on the five-item “To-Do” list of legislative actions he says he would like Congress to take this year. This particular item is: “Create Jobs By Investing In Affordable Clean Energy”

A statement put out by the White House on Thursday explained the substance of Obama’s request.

“Congress needs to help put America in control of its energy future by passing legislation that will extend the Production Tax Credit to support American jobs and manufacturing in the wind industry alongside an expansion of the 48C Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit that supports American-made clean energy manufacturing,” the White House said.

“The Production Tax Credit, which expires at the end of 2012, provides a 2.2 cent per kilowatt hour credit for utility scale wind producers,” said the White House.

“In the Recovery Act, $2.3bn in 48C credits were offered, and the program was over-subscribed by more than 3-to-1, meaning that over $5 billion projects with merit did not get funding,” said the White House. “The President’s plan calls for an additional $5 billion in credits, which would support at least $17 billion in direct investment in clean energy manufacturing facilities.”

HAHAHA! I saw your youtube link and had to ask myself, “will this be the mortgage and gas lady?” Yup.

That video NEVER gets old. It is a microcosm of the Obama voter, and why we are so screwed. ;-)

Why not get the blades off the windmills that sit idle all over CA? The president’s cronies have certainly “made enough money,” in Obamas infamous words.

“Nobody wants a handout,” Obama said. “Nobody wants to get something for nothing.”

The truly disgusting...and frightening...thing is that he can say this with a straight face.

Right. He is totally delusional (and a liar). The majority has now become a naiton of hands out, not just wants it for nothing and no effort, but demands it, espects it, will do violence and creat havoc for it.

I do. But it's wrong and I don't expect it. TINSTAAFL!

“The Production Tax Credit, which expires at the end of 2012, provides a 2.2 cent per kilowatt hour credit for utility scale wind producers,” said the White House.

Then watch as the price of Electricity skyrockets and windmills across the country turn into rusting monuments in honor government intervention.

Heck, I’d like to get everything for nothing if it were truly “for nothing”. In common practice though, “for nothing” always translates into “taken from someone else”.

Exactly! So, if the Won is correct, then cut off welfare tomorrow and nobody will riot. I’ll not hold my breath waiting for it to happen because the only sure part in there is that riots will immediately follow cutoff of welfare. But they don’t want something for nothing. Right....

"We have come too far to abandon the change we fought for these past few years.
We have to move forward to the future we imagined in 2008 where everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same rules.
That’s the choice in this election and that’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States.”

~Barack Obama

Who in the @%*& does this fundraiser fanatic think he's kidding? Is expecting "anything" from him (and getting nothing after voter's pockets are emptied except for larger costs, higher taxes and less jobs) the message he's making? If so, it's an epic "fail."

The welfare state of the union

Snip: In fact, the Department of Agriculture has just reported that 43.6 million Americans are now receiving food stamps.

Significantly, in 2006, near the height of the historic Bush economic expansion, the number of Americans receiving food stamps was just over 20 million. Since then, the number of (food stamp) recipients has more than doubled, with nearly all of the increase coming under the presidency of Barack Obama.

Study shows largest population of welfare recipients are immigrants

Snip: Fifty seven percent of households in which immigrants live are collecting at least one welfare check. This number refers to both legal and illegal aliens living in the United States. The report found that the majority of people on welfare are not even residents or citizens of the country. Only 39 percent of Americans are receiving welfare compared to the totals for immigrants.

““Nobody wants a handout,” Obama said. “Nobody wants to get something for nothing.”

Then tell Bernanke to stop printing money and diluting our currency, by which our private wealth is being embezzled by government. Stop borrowing money to fund the budget deficit because you never intend to repay a penny of it. You dearly hope you can roll the debt down the line to your children.

Socialism is the fraudulent belief that we each much live at the expense of others. If that is not something for nothing , I don’t know what is.
