Now you know why and how Obama got elected


Jim Campbell

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.

No doubt there is a government program in the works. How cool federal unionized dogs.  God only know how much poop is lying around the halls of congress.

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.

What $40 Means to Americans Across the Country: More than 41,700 people submitted responses on WhiteHouse.gov

 

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.

  1. Obama’s saying “per paycheck” is so vague. It would be far more accurate to say, $40 per week, two weeks, month, etc. Pay periods differ from company to company. He really doesn’t want to be specific, because as long as he isn’t, people take what they want to hear from it. All it really does is further deplete the Social Security and Medicare funds and make them even more vulnerable.

    Who paid attention to what will pay for this. Obama et al will not be able to steal the social security money, so they will replace it with a 2% surtax on government-backed loans, the Fanny, Freddy, for instance. So if your mortgage payment is $2000 a month you will pay $40.00 a month more. Of course, with low salaries, you pay less than $40.00 a pay period, lower mortgage payment, you pay less than $40.00 a month, But the 2% more on the mortgage side makes Obama more money than he loses in SSI payments, because most retirees pay mortgage payments, and those on worker’s comp pay for mortgages, and wealth persons pay high mortgage payments. It’s all more smoke and mirrors–but doesn’t it sound great? Don’t count on that hotdog for lunch every once in a while and stock up on peanutbutter.
