President Obama issued a $3.9 trillion budget proposal for 2015 on Tuesday that contains heavy new investments in infrastructure upgrades, education and job training.

The package, released about a month late in the wake of a two-year spending plan adopted by Congress and signed by the president in December, received little support in the Republican-controlled House – which is expected to release its own proposal shortly – and may not even get much consideration in the Senate.

More proof that we've turned the corner and are on the road to recovery. Else, how could we pony up that kind of cush?

Opportunity to just steal as much as he wants, and redistribute it, plus print a lot more, and hand it out too.

Some opportunity. Some folks would call that stealing. He calls it ‘His special opportunity”.

The Federal Fecal Finger turns everything that it touches into smelly, sticky puddles of “Obama.”

The ultimate example is the Federal Program called “Obama Socialized Health Insurance Tax, or OSHIT.”

All new Federal Programs are to be rejected out of hand, especially anything to do with OUR precious children and grandchildren.

So say we, one and ALL!

Which conveniently will pass through groups all traditionally connected to Democrats and who pass large amounts of lobbying money back to Democrat candidates

The “agenda” is control. Plunder, by a$$igning us, our children and grandchildren to debt slavery, gives them the “opportunity”.

Exactly. “Investment” is a propaganda term for handing out money to your political allies. We shouldn’t let our opponents control the language.

"Opportunity Agenda?"
Good Grief!

This clown playing at president is a walking collection of absurd, cognitive dissonance euphemisms.

For years, now, I feel we all have been playing parts in a Monty Python movie.

Except all the absurdities and consequences are painfully real.

So that's what happened to the trillion$ "stimulus" package that was supposed to take care of all that stuff...

Incidentally, whatever happened to this...?

“That’s why today, I’m pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office.” That categorical pledge occurred exactly three years ago this week, February 23, 2009.

Stupid Promises By the First Impostor

"If Bush deficits ranging between $157 billion and $413 billion...were 'unpatriotic,' how might we characterize his [Obama's] own deficits? Criminal? Traitorous?"

Three Trillion?

We need to get back into the previously unsustainable hundreds of billions budgets.

Senate blocks President Obama’s nominee to lead Justice Department’s civil rights unit

Mar 5, 2014

Eight Democrats joined a large group of Republicans to deny the post for which Debo Adegbile had been tapped. Adegbile, a former NAACP lawyer, faced opposition due to his involvement in helping to defend Mumia Abu-Jamal, who killed a police officer in 1981.

What a travesty. They should hire a civil rights lawyer to ensure that this is racist.
