Obama is the road to failure for America...I agree with tornado647..He or she hit the mark of truth. Many people on this site have seem Obama as a joke. He has lied and will sell his soul to get back in, so he can really raise havoc. It would not surprise me if he did not try to sell America to China....We need to send Obama packing and take back America. We need to start with telling the companies that have their goods made in China to bring those jobs home or else. We can stop this mess by taxing everything from China so much that it would be fruitless to do business there. I just heard the Chinese are going to start repairing a bridge here in America. I want to vomit. Where the hell is Congress or is the whole bunch of them in on the destruction of America.....
Now they are talking about taking away our guns...I am am sure the liberals would love that......
Notice how all these new taxes are really aimed at the people who try to excel
in life. They use the faces of billionaires or corporations such as Microsoft
but in reality a corporation for small businesses are made of 2-3 people
which are the vast majority of those who provide jobs for people while
trying to make a living. 250k is nothing in a business when inventory
wages, and other expenses are all including in that magical number. Obama
has a lifetime on the public dole now so what does it matter to him who
he hurts, all the rich Demo's will be unaffected by his proposed tax increases
but we will.. Take all the money from all the billionaires, millionaires and
run the current government for maybe two months... He is a dangerous
The following are 12 statistics about money and Congress that are so outrageous that it is hard to believe that they are actually true....
#1 The collective net worth of all of the members of Congress increased by 25 percent between 2008 and 2010.
#2 The collective net worth of all of the members of Congress is now slightly over 2 billion dollars. That is "billion" with a "b".
#3 This happened during a time when the net worth of most American households was declining rapidly. According to the Federal Reserve, the collective net worth of all American households decreased by 23 percent between 2007 and 2009.
#4 The average net worth for a member of Congress is now approximately 3.8 million dollars.
#5 The net worth of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi increased by 62 percent from 2009 to 2010. In 2009 it was reported that she had a net worth of 21.7 million dollars, and in 2010 it was reported that she had a net worth of 35.2 million dollars.
#6 The top Republican in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, saw his wealth grow by 29 percent from 2009 to 2010. He is now worth approximately 9.8 million dollars.
#7 More than 50 percent of the members of the U.S. Congress are millionaires.
#8 In 2008, the average cost of winning a seat in the House of Representatives was $1.1 million and the average cost of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate was $6.5 million. Spending on political campaigns has gotten way out of control.
#9 Insider trading is perfectly legal for members of the U.S. Congress - and they refuse to pass a law that would change that.
#10 The percentage of millionaires in Congress is more than 50 times higher than the percentage of millionaires in the general population.
#11 U.S. Representative Darrell Issa is worth approximately 220 million dollars. His wealth grew by approximately 37 percent from 2009 to 2010.
#12 The wealthiest member of Congress, U.S. Representative Michael McCaul, is worth approximately 294 million dollars.
If you don’t think something’s wrong with this picture you are blind!
Those who think that Obama and his camp have been doing a great job these last four years that they don't want to change things is no better than the idiots who retained Chaney/Bush for their other four years. Is it pride? Is it fear of losing face? Let's get honest with each other. We are the working class and the middle class who are losing all that we have and our families have worked hard for. Obama has been so transparent lately that he should be called Mr. Cellofane. He needs to keep the Mexican borders open for latino votes and gun sales (google Opperation Fast and Furious) and has become very upset when one of the states that has taken a stand because it has been they who have been suffering. The Democrats are not uncomfortable with the idea of voters not having to show their US/ state legal identification cards so that non-residents can vote for them and enter freely into the country utilizing this countries tax paid resources. Obama thinks he is clever by telling people that the National Health Care System won't involve raising any taxes. Truth be told he wants to increase the size of the IRS so that more agents can make certain that not a single dime get's through their fingers. The IRS will then be able to review all Americans last seven years of tax returns. A small error could become huge with interest and late fees for any one of us. Last minute gay marriage appoval even though he was in opposition to it before just to get the gay vote. Obama wants a big bully governement to take our lunch and milk money. He wants Americans to accept mediocrity. He is fine that we are no longer the wealthiest country in America.
I do not know why the wealthiest are supportive of paying more in taxes but I have no doubt that it's all smoke in mirrors. Just like Palozzi said about the healthcare bill "If you want to know what is in it you have to vote for it first." Sorry my faith is in God, not the governement.
Obama's supporters are mostly in LA .... la la land!! He has the backing of the heroin crowd in Hollywood. That's almost embarassing to know that the people in Hollywood, who are living on another planet, are the people that think Obama is a worthwhile Pres. What a joke!!
Obama belongs with his "peeps" in LA. He sure doesn't belong in Washington!!
I didn't think Obama liked the rich. Why would he be around them, isn't he for the little guy????? The standard political crap. Two faced and a professional liar. Obama is the typical "it's only wrong if you do it". If I do it, it's for for the good of the people.
Why would anyone vote for a man that knows nothing about running a country.
WAKE UP, Look around what do you see, We are in more debt now then we ever have been. Where do you obama voters live. Let me guess. You have not lost your job,Or your home,Some have lost their familys,How can you think obama has done anything. But tear our country apart.
50 million people on foodstamps,TRILLIONS IN DEBT AND COUNTING,
Unemployment the worst in 50 years,Empty houses ever where you look.
Familys have got to live togeather, 8 people in one house, Because they lost everything.
YES 4 MORE YEARS OF OBAMA, JUST WHAT WE NEED, TO FINISH OFF OUR COUNTRY,
If he gets in again were done, And you people that voted for him will be the first to start crying when the **** hits the fan
If the ultra rich want to contribute more, why don't they JUST DO IT!! ... to quote Nike! They are always free to contribute as much as they like! So why, instead of trying to push tax law, don't they "just do it"!?
Obviously, there is another "agenda" here....Or they would just simply contribute more!... right? GET A CLUE, Americans.... he's not saying this to try to save YOUR ****.....to try to benefit America... There is always an agenda.... because HE always has the "freedom" to "contribute" as much as he wants to....
why, why should they pay a higher rate. why can't we get some folks in here that will go back to believing the best entitlement plan or program is a job and quick handing out trillions to folks that do nothing at all.
throwing good money after bad. folks we all pay in more than enough. we have idiots running the country not managing our dollars.
