President Barack Obama used his November re-election victory as leverage to suggest that Americans have already voiced their approval for his budget-reform proposal.

The president, in a speech Friday at a K'nex toy factory in Hatfield, Pa., called out House Republicans and others who have resisted his calls for tax increases on the wealthiest 2% of income earners and capital gains and dividend taxes to raise revenue in a new budget.

Bull crap.
They also left the House in Republican hands, saying they want someone to keep you and your screwy ideas in check.

Whether the House will do that or not is another question...

He is trying to win the political spin..

Our people need to be out there, too, calling him out as a fraud. Belittle him with facts. ( Some of these companies maybe inviting him, so they can get a Obamacare waiver more readily than others- who knows what is going on) What company would call him to speak because he's dangerous to our economy.

I will go call and complain of how could they have him there when he has set in motion everything to hurt the business engine. Seems counter productive.

The Republicans need to raise and spend large amounts of money countering this crap in commercials.

So did Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and every other dictator that has walked the face of the Earth since the beginning of time.

Boycott all liberals and what they do/sell/endorse. Enough people do this and it will hurt. If nothing else YOU feel better on an individual basis for doing your own part.

My husband called to see if they were union...they r not so he suggested the unions get over there quickly and get to work unionizing the workers...call for a walkout during this busy holiday season. See how the owners like that. Why isn’t the left screaming about him going to a non union shop?

Does this mean they are about to go under...like usually happens shortly after O’Bummer appears at a business?

Look at the Republican congressmen out in the streets pouring gasoline over themselves and threatening to flick that bic if Obama tries to raise taxes on the rich. He just makes stuff up now.

“I know, I just know in my heart, that these Republicans want to lower taxes on the rich and raise them on the poor!”

There’s a word for people who think they can read minds......insane.

The company has no control over what Obama says while he's there! Don't punish them, just because he showed up.

K'nex are EXCELLENT toys for kids! They're way better than the silly, inane crap that gets advertised over Christmas!

He didn’t just show up. He was invited by the leftist, crony capitalists that run that company.
