I missed the speech, thankfully, however transcripts are abundant. My opinion is that Barack Obama has deliberately allowed our economy and unemployment to worsen in order to sell poor and out-of-work Americans a bill that, when written, will expand government and the power of the federal government similar to what FDR did with the ‘New Deal’.
I find it most disgusting. It isn’t just that he asked Congress to pass a non-existent bill that he says will allow Americans to get back to work. It isn’t just that he is extremely partisan and the bill will be very controversial although he said, and I quote:
There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation.
I think we all agree on this point, however, I read the rest of the speech in which he urged Congress to ‘pass this bill’ nine times. What Barack Obama is proposing will take America further down the path toward socialism.
Obama is hoping by offering a “new deal” type program where he puts Americans to work on government projects such as road building, school construction (which is a state function), and further bankrupts Social Security by giving a SS tax cut rather than an income tax cut, that he will be viewed as Franklin D. Roosevelt was viewed. Notice what he is proposing:
It will put people to work right now fixing roofs and windows, installing science labs and high-speed Internet in classrooms all across this country. It will rehabilitate homes and businesses in communities hit hardest by foreclosures. It will jumpstart thousands of transportation projects all across the country.
One has to remember that this bill hasn’t been written, and yet:
The idea for a big boost in construction is supported by…America’s largest labor organization.
He promises that:
Pass this jobs bill, and thousands of teachers in every state will go back to work.
How does the federal government put teachers to work? Teachers are hired by the state government!
The real truth of who Barack Obama is and how he wants to change America is revealed in the title of the bill that is yet to be written, or at least to be revealed. The American Jobs Act – The role of government isn’t to create jobs. The role of government is to create a climate whereby citizens are able to create jobs and operate businesses.
Barack Obama believes in big government and a president who rules. He says of himself:
So, some things we can do on our own.
He is referring to the proposals he plans to place in the ‘American Jobs Act’. Obama does not see his role as an executive officer. He sees his role as a ruler.
Prior to taking office, Valerie Jarrett told Tom Brokaw that Obama would be “ready to rule” on day one.
“Given the daunting challenges that we face, it is important that president-elect Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to rule day one,” Jarrett told Tom Brokaw.
In the speech,Obama admitted that he is planning to cut Medicare and Medicaid. He plans to broaden the scope of government and he plans on having you re-elect him in spite of his dismal record. He wrecked our economy and now he wants a government program similar to the ‘New Deal’ so that Americans will perceive him as a savior. In my opinion, this is close to being criminal.
