Obama has not been known for his veracity. He never will be. For voters to be so absolutely uneducated to believe they are receiving $40.00 when we are talking about the entitlements of Social Security and Medicare which are already unfunded liabilities, to the tune of $160 trillion and yes I said trillion is a credit to our public education system. Yes of all of Obama’s cons this deserves the “Steaming dog poop award”
To believe this the voter must believe that a dog would willingly scoop his own poop.
Nobody frequenting this site should have any question why I wasn’t on the stage. Bummer I didn’t save my response. It gave new meaning to “The Shot Heard Around the World.”
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
Using social media and the internet, the American people told Washington in no uncertain terms that letting the payroll tax cut expire on December 31, 2011 was not acceptable. You tweeted, you called and you emailed to remind Washington that politics is not a game – serving the American people is a serious responsibility and the decisions made in Congress have serious consequences on people’s lives. Eliminating the payroll tax cut would have cost a family earning $50,000 a year about $40 per paycheck, and for working families, that is real money; money that buys things like school lunches, the gas needed to get to work or visit ailing relatives, and even co-pays for doctor visits and essential prescription medicines.
The American people scored a victory when the Senate and the House of Representatives passed a two-month renewal of payroll tax cuts for 160 million workers and unemployment benefits for millions who are out of work. Watch the video and meet some of the tens of thousands of working Americans who believed that their voice could make a difference, had the courage to speak out about what losing an extra $40 per paycheck would mean for them and for their family, and reminded the politicians in Washington that governing is about helping make people’s lives better.
