US Deficit projected to total $8.4 trillion in 8 yrs

President Obama, TAXES, THE ECONOMY

 http://www.grasstopsusa.com/stopthebailoutschemes2.html

 

"The Obama budget claims to cut the deficit in half by 2012, but relies on audaciously optimistic economic forecasts that no one believes in. Adding the 'stimulus' bill to a realistic budget baseline yields a projected 2010-2017 cumulative budget deficit of $8.4 trillion – 2.5 times the size of President Bush’s deficits over the same eight-year period." - The Heritage Foundation

     8.4 trillion! Barack Obama has only been in office for a little over a month!

     That's $8,400,000,000,000.00! That's approximately $28,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States... a staggering debt of about $112,000.00 for the average family of four.

     And Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid aren't about to stop there. Like the Energizer Bunny, they want to keep going and going and going!

     Obama still wants to nationalize health-care... he wants to give billions of your hard-earned tax dollars to third-world dictators and despots under the guise of combating global poverty... and the Obama Administration has already hinted that more bailouts may be needed!

     Look at just some of what has happened in the past 30 days.

On Friday, Obama proposed a 3.5 trillion dollar federal budget which will widen the deficit to $1.75 trillion dollars. The federal deficit in 2007 was $160.7 billion dollars.  Obama's  own proposed budget calls for a federal deficit that is almost 11 TIMES THE 2007 DEFICIT!

Timothy (I-Have-Issues-Paying-My-Own-Taxes) Geithner's Treasury Department announced that American International Group Inc. (AIG), after losing a RECORD 99.3 billion in 2008, would receive an ADDITIONAL $30 billion in Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) handouts.

General Motors (GM) and Chrysler are angling for another $14 billion and GM is promising to cut 47,000 jobs – about 20 percent of its workforce – in exchange for its share of your tax-payer dollars.

And The Chicago Tribune reported: ”President Barack Obama will break a campaign pledge against congressional earmarks and sign a budget bill laden with millions in lawmakers’ pet projects … Taxpayers for Common Sense, a watchdog group, identified almost 8,600 earmarks totaling $7.7 billion.

     At this rate; how much more will that $8.4 trillion figure go up in the next 30 days?

     It has simply got to STOP! It's got to STOP NOW!

     It’s time for Americans to stick their heads out of the window and – to borrow a phrase from the classic movie Network – shout to Barack Obama: “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

Use the hyperlink below and send your personalized Blast Fax messages to President Barack Obama and EACH AND EVERY ONE of the Republican and Democrat Leaders of the House and Senate and tell them that you're not going to take it anymore!

No more picking the pockets of hard-working Americans. Demand a IMMEDIATE STOP to these idiotic bailout and wealth redistribution schemes and the trillion-dollar spending sprees. Enough is enough! Barack Obama says he wanted to help the overburdened middle-class. Instead he’s robbing us blind. The insanity must stop!  Now!

It's Time To Get Plumb Mad-Dog Mean
     C. Edmund Wright, writing for the Internet blog, The American Thinker, quoted Clint Eastwood from the movie, The Outlaw Josie Wales:

"Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is."

     Wright is right. Simple business-as-usual opposition is not enough!  It's time to get mad-dog mean!

     Or to put it in Wright's own words:

"These words... should be engraved on a huge sign in the offices of the Republican Party. ... Frankly, if someone in the loyal opposition does not get mean, speedy Barack Obama and the Pelosi-Reid leftist juggernaut will have turned our nation into a textbook socialist republic faster than you can name the 57 states. There is nothing short of an all out legislative assault on our entire way of life... If this country's way of life is worth fighting for, then it's high time to fight. And that means getting mean. Plumb mad dog mean."

     Remember Rick Santelli's tirade against Obama's so-called mortgage bailout plan on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade about a week ago!

     Santelli’s angry denunciation took the Obama White House by surprise. For a while the Obama White House ignored Santelli. Then suddenly the woods were on fire. Everybody was sticking his head out the window, protesting Obama’s Marxist bailout scheme.

     White House spokesman Robert Gibbs went after Santelli by playing the old class-envy card: “I’ve watched Mr. Santelli on cable the past 24 hours or so. I’m not entirely sure where Mr. Santelli lives or in what house he lives...”

     Gibbs went on and derisively joked that he'd be happy have have a cup of "Decaffeinated" coffee with Santelli.

     But that's not all. Chris Matthews of MSNBC went after Santelli and accused him of "coming down hard on Barack."

     Left-wing bloggers – the shock-troops of the extreme left – acting in lock-step to Gibbs' remarks openly snickered and piled on Santelli as well, but they could not counter what Santelli said on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade:  “This is either socialism or communism, It isn’t Americanism - and it isn’t right.”

     More to the point; it is REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. It’s Karl Marx’s Communist slogan put into practice right here in the USA – “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.”

     And that's why it's time to get "plumb mad-dog mean!"

It Isn't Working... Or Is It Working After All?
     It's time to face some simple facts. Obama and Pelosi and Reid and liberals in Congress AREN'T trying to "fix" the economy (at least not as the American people understand the word).

     What they're doing is using our economic down-turn as a pathetic excuse to transform the United States into a socialist country.

     That's why they keep advancing failed solutions.

     In regards to failed solutions, former-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich reminds us that we're actually in our FOURTH BAILOUT:

"The Bush - Obama plan started last spring with a $180 billion stimulus package that failed, then in the summer they had a $345 billion dollar housing bailout that failed, then in the fall we had a $700 billion Wall Street bailout that failed, plus a $4 trillion guarantee by Bernanke and the Fed. Now we have the $780 billion stimulus which I believe will fail. And that's going to be followed by another... ."

     And what effect are these "fixes" having on the economy? The Wall Street Journal published the following in regards to Obama's mortgage bailout plan:

"Mr. Obama's mortgage plan is his third big economic rescue proposal in a month, and perhaps someone in the White House has noticed that financial markets haven't exactly cheered. Yesterday's end-of-day wrap from UBS put it this way: 'Obama Speaks, Market Listens, Sells Off.'"

     Did you notice what happened when Obama effectively clinched the Democratic nomination?

     Back in June the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) was around 12,500. With each passing day – as it became more and more apparent that Obama might actually win the presidency – the market slowly inched down.

     On Nov. 4, the day Barack Obama won the presidency, the market (which had fallen to 9,625) went into free-fall.

     A little over two weeks later (Nov. 20) the market fell by another 2,000 points to 7,552!

     And the free-fall continues... as we go to press, the DJI is hovering around 6800!

     Obama and Relosi and Reid KNOW their policies and plans to radically transform America into AMERIKA are driving the market down.

     They can be stopped, but that means conservatives in Congress are going to have to get "plumb mad-dog mean."

Who's Afraid Of Barack Obama?
     Let’s face it; people are no longer frightened of recession. They’re frightened of Barack Obama – the glib, inexperienced president who thinks he can solve all problems with socialist solutions.

     Even the liberal Brookings Institute is worried. Here’s what its researchers reported about the stimulus package:

"What is more troubling is that, under what we view as optimistic assumptions, the deficit is projected to average at least $1 trillion per year for the 10 years after 2009, even if the economy returns to full employment and the stimulus package is allowed to expire in two years."

     Just ten years until our nation returns to solvency, reduced taxes, sunshine?

     Not so, says Brookings:

"The longer-run picture is even bleaker. We estimate a fiscal gap – the immediate and permanent increase in taxes or reduction in spending that would keep the long-term debt/GDP ratio at its current level –about 7-9 percent of GDP, or between $1 trillion and $1.3 trillion per year in current dollars."

     Read that over carefully: We have to “increase taxes" and/or have a "reduction in spending” JUST TO STAY IN HOCK UP TO OUR EARS.

     But Obama's not done yet... not by a long shot.  Obama has promised to rebuild our infrastructure, socialize medicine, end global poverty and fund trillions of other expensive projects.

     Let's get "Plumb mad-dog mean."
