Remember when Warren Buffett stated it was up to the rich to pay more taxes and that the government should raise taxes on the “rich.” Why then is Warren Buffett’s own company, Berkshire Hathaway, fighting tooth and nail to avoid paying their fair share? It seems that Berkshire Hathaway was given a great opportunity to set the example for us all and pay more taxes. Instead his company is bogged down in a protracted legal battle with the IRS to avoid paying an estimated $1 billion in back taxes his company now owes. Just another example of how very generous liberals are … as long as it is with other people’s money!!
Obama is just so bi-partisan; and just oozes with the spirit of political cooperation and fair play … don’t you think? Democratic strategist, James Carville, said Obama was way out-of-bounds when he scheduled his presidential address at the same time as the already scheduled Republican presidential debate. Carville stated that, given a choice between watching a debate and the speech, I would have watched the debate and I’m not even a Republican or even close to being a Republican!” Gotta love El Rushbo! In response to White House Press Secretary Carney’s glib denial of any partisan intent, Rush asked: “How much are you paid to lie to the American people, Jay?”
Maxine Waters strikes again. She wants Obama to use extortion to force banks to modify loans. It seems it is now up to the federal government to make sure people can afford their mortgages. If the “gangster” banks don’t do what she wants … Waters wants the government to “tax them out of business.” This is just further proof of the fact that liberal progressives consider taxation to be a means of punishing those they dislike as much as a way to fund the government. I do wonder if this policy applies to her husband’s bank as well?
Poor Obama is just so frustrated that Congress won’t “focus” on doing their jobs whining that, “It’s been a long time since Congress was focused on what the American people need them to be focused on.” Well, Mr. Obama … did you not just get back from vacation, a bus tour, and non-stop fund-raisers? What about the 80 rounds of golf this year? Isn’t this kind of like the “pot calling the kettle black?” Oops … I guess now I am being racist!
By the way, Mr. Obama, the Keystone XL pipeline would bring North American oil (from Canada, the Dakotas, and Montana) to oil refineries on the Gulf Coast here in the U.S. This would create more American jobs, mean lower energy costs (including lower prices at the pump), and develop a more secure energy supply. Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline would:
- Provide relief to Americans struggling with the high costs of energy
- Supply Americans with abundant North American energy and help lower overseas imports
- Create tens of thousands of American jobs throughout the United States
- Add billions in revenue to the federal government at a time of ballooning federal deficits
So what do you say Mr. Obama, how about doing something that can really simulate the American economy? Will your administration do some real good … and approve the Keystone XL pipeline? Time will tell ….
