Butch and Billy Roy think Obama is an anti-colonialist who wants to weaken and destroy America both economically and internationally. Others think he is a crony capitalistic version of a socialist who wants to control every element of our society either through a huge socialist government or using his business partners or a combination. If Butch and Billy Roy are right, the only people dumber than Obama voters are Obama's financial backers who provide his hundreds of millions of campaign dollars only to insure their own destruction. How does this work?
First let's identify who these big campaign doners are. We only have to look at his PROPOSED budget to find them. First come the unions. A good part of his $1.3 Trillion deficit spending budget goes to yet another round of not-so-shovel-ready construction projects and government "investments" totaling $178 billion. Spending includes the president's favored road, bridge, and school construction projects, but then they go alarmingly beyond the usual 'infrastructure' arguments to fund teachers' pay. In other words, unions representing the construction site and the classroom win big in the Obama PROPOSED budget.
Other winners in the president's PROPOSED budget are those who fit into the Administration's vision of a green economy that is propelled not by the market's demand, but by Obama's whim (and of course Algore, Solyndra, and Doerr's greed). The 2013 budget proposes to spend $310 million to make solar energy cost-competitive without subsidies by 2020, $290 million to expand R&D on energy efficient manufacturing techniques, and $421 million in fossil energy research and development. Obama's budget rejects the notion of a market-based energy industry and wastes taxpayer dollars at a time when we desperately need to curtail out-of-control spending. Also all this green spending will make the country even more dependent on foreign sources of real energy (that being oil, gas, and coal).
There's no clearer example of just how ridiculous Obama's PROPOSED crazy spending would be than his decision to increase subsidies for electric vehicles like the $41,000 Chevy Volt while ending funding for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program (DCOSP), which gives low-income children in the nation's capital a chance to escape underperforming schools. According to the Heritage Foundation the White House intends to increase taxpayer-funded subsidies for those who purchase new-technology vehicles to $10,000 per buyer, up from $7,500. Keep in mind that the average income of a Volt buyer is $175,000 per year. That means that middle-class taxpayers are helping the rich buy pricy, politically correct cars.
With his other hand, President Obama is taking from the poor. The DCOSP provides $8,000 vouchers to 1,600 low-income children in the District of Columbia, empowering them to attend a school that they choose. The program has been a stunning success -- though it has drawn criticism from the president's teachers union allies. If the president gets his way, those children will pay the price.
Heritage goes further into the big picture, "They won't be the only ones in their generation, though, who will suffer under the president's budget. From a big picture perspective, the president's budget rises from $3.8 trillion to $5.8 trillion in 2022. Putting that into context, that means outlays above 22 percent of gross domestic product -- more than twice the New Deal's share of the economy in its peak years. In constant dollars, outlays are more than three times the peak of World War II. With all that spending, someone will have to pay for it. Whose names will be on the bill? Those under 30 -- America's debt-paying generation. Their entire lives will be dominated by paying down today's mountains of debt. And some of them are waking up to that fact."
"It will be my generation, rather than the retiring baby boomers, that will be paying off the national debt through higher income taxes," says Amanda Winkler, 24, a Master's Student at American University. Shaun Rabenius, 26, is a part-time construction worker and student. He says, "I have never followed politics much, except for when I vote. But in looking at the last decade, the presidencies, and the debt they have accumulated, I am scared out of my mind."
So how is Obama screwing his donors with all these goodies in his budget. The dummies will be impressed that he had the guts to put their ridiculous pay offs in his budget. HOWEVER, THE TRUTH IS OBAMA'S BUDGET WILL NEVER PASS THE CONGRESS. HIS LAST BUDGET WAS DEFEATED BY A VOTE OF 97-0. AND OBAMA KNOWS IT. He can continue to destroy the nation economically and internationally while paying for his re-election campaigns with goodies to his donors that he can not deliver. Bottom line: OBAMA IS CONNING EVERYONE INCLUDING HIS BIG MONEY DONORS. He makes big promises, and they will get only scraps as long as there are enough Republicans in Congress to block the Obama budgets.
Are Obama supporters this dumb or is Obama just that much smarter?
Think about it,
