Stacy McCain has some prevarication from a couple of “journalists” from the New York Times about budget discussions between President Obama and the GOP led Congress.
Journalism is supposed to be about truth. Jackie Calmes and Jonathan Weisman of the New York Times are engaged in deception:
With Republican leaders in Congress forswearing budget negotiations over new revenues, President Obama has begun reaching around them to Republican lawmakers with a history of willingness to cut bipartisan deals.
“New revenues” = INCREASING TAXE RATES.
President Obama wants to RAISE TAXES, which Republicans oppose, but these lying bastards at the New York Times — partisan propagandists, endeavoring to assist their fellow Democrat — realize that the president’s proposal might be less popular if they described it truthfully, and so they begin with this 11-word dependent clause that hides the truth and shifts the blame:
With Republican leaders in Congress forswearing budget negotiations over new revenues . . .
Republicans have tried to operate in good faith with this administration. But whenever they offer proposals that would cut spending, the only answer from Democrats is “We can’t cut spending unless you want to hurt Grandma or our serving military and Veterans.”
The Democrats sound like a broken record…we need to raise taxes on the rich- they need to pay their fair share. Republicans already caved on a tax increase a few months ago which was supposed to lead to spending cuts. As is their wont, Democrats reneged on their promise of spending cuts, ergo the hyped up sequester.
This administration has a bad case of Bureaucratitis. Until we excise some of this tumor and get rid of onerous regulation, we will never have an economic recovery and pretty soon, Obama will be wanting to tax Welfare benefits.
