Obama is fooling everyone [UPDATED]Published 9:54am Monday, September 24, 2012 Updated 11:55am Monday, September 24, 2012
Please allow me to give you an alternate view to Mr. Weber’s letter to the editor on Sept. 13, with his take on the Republican vote on “The Bring Jobs Home Act.”
The Democrats, as usual, pushed a largely symbolic vote staying stride on stride with Obama’s campaign theme. A Democrat “yes” vote and Republican “no’ vote would give credence to talk of Romney, Bain Capital, and job outsourcing. The bill lacked seriousness. Incidentally, the current tax law has no provisions that give companies a deduction for outsourcing jobs. Another bill pushed called for candidates to reveal any overseas investments and to release a decades worth of tax returns.
The Democratic-controlled Senate has also tried to push other Obama reelection ploys: the Buffet Rule, pay-equity bills, and student loan interest freeze. In those instances and more, Obama has utilized the Senate in an attempt to appeal to different voting blocs. His recent anti-deportation executive order follows suit.
Republicans were considering supporting “The Bring Jobs Home Act” until the Senate Majority Leader said he wouldn’t include any Republican amendments. The Republicans wanted a vote to repeal Obamacare.
Obamacare, the single most expensive entitlement in our countries history is accompanied by many
tax increases, and rules most do not understand, It was made into law without any input from Republicans allowed to hit the Senate or House floor or without one Republican vote. Republicans represent about 50% of our countries voters.
The arrogance of the Democrats has deep-sixed another bill that may or not be needed. My advice to Democrats is to try again when they learn the true definition of bipartisanship.
If someone asks “what’s Obama done in the last four years?”
He and the Democratic-controlled Congress have shoved a medical care package down our throats which the majority of us do not want and our country cannot afford.
He has traveled far and wide attending fundraisers and promoting his reelection … all on your dime.
My advice to Mr. Weber: “If he fooled you once shame on him … if he fools you twice shame on you.
