STOP THE MADNESS, ENOUGH ALREADY
Grow the ‘F’ Up House Speaker John Boehner
Here we go again. House Speaker John Boehner, why even go to the trouble of putting a bill up when you know good and well it won’t pass. President Obama’s wish to extend the Payroll Tax Cuts for the middle class and the poor, with a simple practically painless tiny tax increase to the very wealthy without any ‘extra’s’ thrown in has been thrown the usual curve ball by Boehner and his sidekick Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. They did what Obama requested that they shouldn’t.
As usual by playing political games as opposed to being the leaders that voters hoped for, Congressional Republicans added a plan to link a fast-tracked approval of an oil pipeline to the measure renewing the middle class payroll tax cut.
Of course the Bopsy twins, John Boehner & Mitch McConnell as the two biggest talking heads in this latest attempt to disrupt government. Came out yesterday, December 12, and touting this plan, explaining his reasoning why our President should approve the bill with the additions added to it.
“There is no reason this legislation shouldn’t have the president’s enthusiastic support,” McConnell said Monday on the Senate floor. “The only reason for Democrats to oppose this job-creating bill would be to gain some political advantage at a time when every one of them says job creation is a top priority.”
Well Mitch, there are numorous reasons why he will say no. Yes he’s opposed to this job-creating extra. But mainly its because the State Department, has authority over the project [because it crosses on an international border], a spokesperson for the State Department said last month it was delaying it’s decision on the pipeline until after next year’s election. Officials said the delay is needed to study routes that avoid environmentally sensitive areas of Nebraska. You know the environment, something you guys seems to want to ruin, for no good reason.
“Should Congress impose an arbitrary deadline for the permit decision, its actions would not only compromise the process, it would prohibit the department from acting consistently with National Environmental Policy Act requirements by not allowing sufficient time” for the project to be considered, the State Department said in a statement. In that case, “the department would be unable to make a determination to issue a permit for this project,” the statement added.
So you see as usual, their need to drill for oil is at the expense of our environment. Screw the regulations. And these jerk’s want to rid us of our environmental protections. Heck we don’t need clean air or water.
We all know that your bill will pass the House, the republican majority there is the only reason. But the Senate won’t pass it, and the President will veto it. So this is yet another waste of our valuable time. I may not be a genius, but a 12-year-old could understand the logic. And because of their usual games, millions of Americans are gonna have their taxes raised. Or have that fear. So Christmas might not be so merry for them after all, since they can’t spare any loose change. And forget the retail shops and last minute Christmas sales boom. Nice way to spur on the economy fellows. Another brilliant strategic move.
Enough already. This is not the first time John Boehner has gone in front of the cameras and touted his revolutionary legislations. Smiling with that Cheshire Cat grin of his and announcing that ‘our’ bill works magic and that no one will suffer because of it. Of course, on the other hand, hmmm, the rich will somehow get a tax break for allowing the ‘other’ Americans the privilege of getting a little extra spending money.
Of course we all know what that means. Since ‘we’ are allowing this great gift to the masses (the low life’s, drug dealers and whores, who comprise the vast majority of the 99ers’), we are gonna have to lessen or possibly delete entirely Social Security or food stamps. Or clean air, or... then of course spend the rest of our time, lieing thru our grins. Telling us that the vast majority of Americans are on our side. That ‘we’ the American people understand that the ‘job creators’ need the tax break, that’s the only way to grow the economy. We are giving them a gift.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) came out with a great statement on the so-called job creators:
“Millionaire job creators are like unicorns,” he said, according to The Hill. “They are impossible to find and don’t exist.”
Enough. The game is up. President Obama’s learning curve in dealing with your antics are over. The game is done. The only people that lose in this game are the American people, and your republican pals. Even if as you hope the Presidents’ Middle class tax break fails, your victory in this will ultimately be your defeat.
You see our country was born in revolution. For a need to be free. That all men are created equal (remember). And as we’ve been witnessing, the masses have begin to rise up. The 99ers’ are simply the beginning in this next revolution. And each time one of your spokespersons come out touting bogus and hurtful measures that only seem to favor the wealthy or powerful, another thousand protesters are born. And another chink in your armor is revealed.
The jigs up. The games over. The American people have awoken, and believe me, waking a sleeping giant isn’t such a good thing... for you and your brethren. But it's a great thing for the future of our country.
Just one man’s opinion
