President Barack Obama and other government liberals should be required to join Spenders Anonymous, a 12-step program (similar to AA) for people emotionally driven to recklessly and blatantly spend money.
Obvious signs include: “A lack of concern about things that don’t have to be paid for this month, a feeling that there is always someone you can turn to for money (U.S. taxpayers) and inordinate feelings of euphoria (and power when spending).”
Highlighting a lack of fiscal reality, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims, “We don’t have a spending problem” and Secretary of the Treasury nominee Jack Lew says, “We stopped spending money we don’t have.” Really? Econ 101: You can’t spend more than you take in, hence deficit spending and a failing economy.
Despite the lack of a Democrat budget for four years, Obama demands additional government freebies and expensive programs to attract new Democrats and increase big government. In his State of the Union speech, he claimed that his proposed programs “won’t add a dime to the deficit.” Really? So where is this funding coming from? Certainly not from Facebook and GE’s millions in tax breaks. Hint: you and me.
Democrats sponsored ads enticing more illegal immigrants to come to the U.S. to raid our bloated social programs. In a fair world, Democrats would not only lose their seats, they’d be imprisoned for embezzlement and fraud on the American taxpayer.
Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher recognized years ago what liberals still fail to see: “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money (to spend).”
Low-information voters who gave Obama four more years to continue destroying the American economy will not learn of most of this through biased media outlets like CBS, NBC and CNN or by propagandizing hack columnists. But socialism always fails.
“What difference does it make . . .?” may be Hilary Clinton’s attitude toward Benghazi, but transparency and fiscal responsibility do count.
