Obama: record of unfairness to middle classTonight Obama is scheduled to deliver a State of the union which will force the entire Congress to listen to an hour-long campaign speech. He will focus on portraying himself as a Savior of the Middle Class. If history is an accurate indicator, he will be lying through his teeth, putting together a montage of slogans/promises/and appeals to fear and envy to befuddle those who are fooled by words, even when contrary to the evidence efore our very eyes.
Here's your prep work:
When President Obama lectures the nation about "fairness" and "middle-class values" in his State of the Union address this evening, Americans ought to consider how dismissive his policies have been of those values, and how unfair they have been to middle-class families.
Above all else, hardworking, middle-class Americans want to ensure a better life for their children. They want to know if they work hard, play by the rules, and live within their means, that those defining middle-class values will be rewarded.
For the last three years, those values have only been punished. Set aside the president's words, and look at his actions.
President Obama has plunged American families $4 trillion deeper into debt. He has taken that money from the people who earned it -- and their children -- and given it to people whose mistakes created the economic crisis in the first place.
Three years into Obamanomics, with millions of jobs lost and businesses shuttered, who exactly has benefited?
The big banks that plunged the world into financial crisis are bigger than ever. Government-backed mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which spurred banks to make those reckless loans, went untouched in the Wall Street reform bill and instead received over $180 billion in taxpayer bailouts. Auto companies so poorly run that they lost money on every car they sold were seized by the federal government, given billions of taxpayer dollars, and handed over to political cronies in the bargain. Green-energy company Solyndra was given $500 million of taxpayer money before it went bankrupt, not due to its technological innovativeness, but because it was politically connected to the .
The hundreds of billions of dollars the president directed to his political cronies could have, if left in the real economy, launched new enterprises and created thousands of new jobs. As it is, though, the American economy, and the middle class families who sustain it, have nothing to show for the president's so-called "investments."
Then there's Obamacare, which robbed $500 billion from the already failing Medicare program to force millions of middle class families from their insurance onto government-rationed care. Obama promised insurance premiums would go down, but the Kaiser Family Foundation found the average employer-based premium for a family increased 9 percent, or $1,303, in 2011. Rates are expected to double over the next 10 years.
Despite these repeated insults to working men and women who diligently send their taxes to Washington only to watch them be foolishly wasted away, Obama continues to insist that big government is good for the middle class. He says it's not right and it's not fair that the wealthy are making more money while the poor and middle class are having a harder time than ever climbing up the economic ladder.Read more at National Review.
Based on his statements over the weekend, it's pretty clear this he’s going to use the platform as an hour-long campaign speech, to push forward his agenda to destroy the very constitution he swore an oath to protect and defend, and replace it with Marxist tyranny.
