Obama campaign manager: House Republicans 'committing economic treason'
Daily Caller ^ | 10/10/13 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 10/10/2013 10:26:58 AM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama’s former senior White House adviser and campaign manager David Plouffe accused House Republicans of “committing economic treason” during the partial government shutdown on Thursday.

In a snarky tweet about Republicans’ attempts to negotiate an end to the government shutdown, Plouffe dredged up the “birther” issue in order to discredit the GOP:

David Plouffe @davidplouffe

Maybe throw in a Special Counsel to investigate the President's birthplace and the House GOP will stop committing economic treason. 8:56 AM - 10 Oct 2013

How can it be treason of any kind when the Congress is trying to conduct itself in the manner specified in the Constitution?

Two can play that game. The liberal democrats, who are really just plain old commies, secured their hold on the political scene through graft, corruption, race hustling, bribery, and infanticide... oh yeah and treason.

Economy for whom? For governmetn leeches like him? With Yellen loving inflation and high gas prices, guess what, we are all headed to take the government provided vouchered “school bus” now... How convenient to suck more of us to make more of us dependent.

In any case, if you are a centrist Rino, take note:

1. you are treasonous to the liberals
2. You are treasonous to the free people

Considering that the current regime is giving guns to Al-Qaeda in Syria & groups that have sworn allegiance to Al-Qaeda and by my reading of the definition written into the Constitution it is the regime that is actually committing treason.

The collective blood pressure of these folks probably exceeds the steam pressure of Old Faithful.

Too bad the shutdown doesn’t block them from view, too.

Karma is what commies do not understand and dont want to contemplate about.

WHen you are for abortion, you cannot defend your right to keep it if someone objects to making it born. It does not have a right in the first place. Eventually communists will have no right to their own guts, and their deal with government welfare and disability minoritizing victim preferential treatment is going to crawl in their insides like a free cancer.

Hold the line Republicans. Keep the government shut down. Maybe now people will see that government is not needed.

All the federal government should be involved in is Military, border control and other international issues.

The states and local gov can take care of a few of other functions like courts ,police. and that’s about it. 99& of local, state, and federal govs not needed. in fact government just cripples the economy , and takes away our freedom

It matters not whether the accusation is true or not.

What matters is that the accusation is made.

It is possible, however, that this time they have overplayed their hand. I’ve been waiting for that to happen, and it hasn’t happened yet, but this may be it.

*’committing economic treason’*

WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Talk about IRONY!
You have to go way out into outer-space to find irony with a mass that dense, a black hole perhaps.

The left should NEVER string those words together. People in glass houses should never play Ella Fitzgerald on a Memorex tape.

Climate Change

Obamacare

Amnesty

Just three examples of apocalyptic-grade economic treason foisted upon us by the Left.

Well, Democrats call conservatives and Republicans the following:

Hitler, Nazis, Racists, Killers, Evil Doers and those that try and take benefits from the elderly and actual disabled folks...
IMO Democrats and their press are what they call others.

Ehh, wrong monarch, George III (1760-1820) was the Colonies last King for 1776. The only John was John I Lackland Plantagenet (1199-1216) of Robin Hood infamy!

And yes, Obama is doing a good reprise!

Plouffe better apologize. He has semi-official standing and use of the word “treason” is way over the top for a semi-official, current or former matters not.

The reality of a real debt limit:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3076090/posts?page=1

The Debt Ceiling is the Law of the Land
redstate.com ^ | 10/6/13 | Daniel Horowitz
Posted on Monday, October 07, 2013 6:07:28 PM by cotton1706

Over the past few weeks, Democrats have indicated that they have no intention of negotiating over Obamacare, opting instead to shut down the government. They are justifying their obstinacy by asserting that Obamacare is the law of the land. Well, if that is the game they want to play, we should return the favor with the debt ceiling. The debt ceiling, pursuant to the Second Liberty Bond Act of 1917, is the law of the land. And it has been so for far longer than Obamacare.

Throughout this debate over funding Obamacare in the budget bill, House GOP leaders have stressed how the debt ceiling was the more appropriate means of fighting Obamacare. After all, it was “the next fight.” But as if on cue, some Republicans are already using the same Democrat talking points about the risk of default.

We are going to hear this erroneous talking point propagated by both parties over the next few weeks, so let’s put the myth to rest. The only way we default on the debt is if we fail to pay the interest on the public debt. According to the updated budget projection from the CBO, interest on the debt will be roughly $237 billion for 2014. Thanks to the short-term revenue benefits of the fiscal cliff and Obamacare tax hikes, the federal government is expected to rake in a record $3.042 trillion from the private economy this year.
Let’s engage in a simple math exercise. $3.042 trillion – $237 billion = $2.805 trillion. As long as the Treasury pays the first $237 billion in revenue to the shareholders of our debt, there will be no default, and we will have $2.805 trillion left to spend. Again, default is taken off the table. Discussion over.

What do you do with the remaining funds? You start funding core functions of government and those programs that people are already dependent on.

Social Security (retirement and disability) – $848 billion
Medicare – $505 billion
Medicaid – $298 billion
Defense – $582 billion
Veterans – $83 billion

Those expenditures account for roughly $2.3 trillion. The remaining half trillion can be prioritized as needed for other functions related to homeland security, national parks, or any other limited function.

Hence, the debt ceiling is a built-in balanced budget mechanism. If Democrats want to fund other functions of government, they need to commit to a balanced budget. If they want to fund the HHS and the IRS, they need to get rid of Obamacare. If they want to fund the EPA, they need to get rid of the war on coal.

The power of the purse manifest in the House of Representatives, in conjunction with the debt ceiling law, reflects democracy at work, especially with divided government. It’s time we stop peddling the myth of default, and start using our leverage to restore constitutional government and bring relief to those who are losing jobs and suffering from the high cost of living engendered by the harmful activities of the unconstitutional aspects of government.
