Tonight, President Obama decided to go back on television to remind the American people about the looming debt ceiling deadline. Unfortunately, it did not accomplish anything, because he still has no plan for dealing with government overspending. 

After the president’s speech, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) gave his rebuttal:

Good evening.   I’m John Boehner.  I serve as Speaker of the whole House — of the members of both parties that you elect.  These are difficult times in the life of our nation.  Millions are looking for work, have been for some time, and the spending binge going on in Washington is a big part of the reason why.

Before I served in Congress, I ran a small business in Ohio.  I was amazed at how different Washington DC operated than every business in America.  Where most American business make the hard choices to pay their bills and live within their means, in Washington more spending and more debt is business as usual.

I’ve got news for Washington – those days are over.

President Obama came to Congress in January and requested business as usual — yet another routine increase in the national debt limit — we in the House said ‘not so fast.’  Here was the president, asking for the largest debt increase in American history, on the heels of the largest spending binge in American history.

Here’s what we got for that spending binge: a massive health care bill that most Americans never asked for.  A ‘stimulus’ bill that was more effective in producing material for late-night comedians than it was in producing jobs.  And a national debt that has gotten so out of hand it has sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours.

The United States cannot default on its debt obligations.  The jobs and savings of too many Americans are at stake.

What we told the president in January was this: the American people will not accept an increase in the debt limit without significant spending cuts and reforms.

And over the last six months, we’ve done our best to convince the president to partner with us to do something dramatic to change the fiscal trajectory of our country. . .something that will boost confidence in our economy, renew a measure of faith in our government, and help small businesses get back on track.

Last week, the House passed such a plan, and with bipartisan support.  It’s called the ‘Cut, Cap, and Balance’ Act.  It CUTS and CAPS government spending and paves the way for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, which we believe is the best way to stop Washington from spending money it doesn’t have.  Before we even passed the bill in the House, the President said he would veto it.

I want you to know I made a sincere effort to work with the president to identify a path forward that would implement the principles of Cut, Cap, & Balance in a manner that could secure bipartisan support and be signed into law.  I gave it my all.

Unfortunately, the president would not take yes for an answer.  Even when we thought we might be close on an agreement, the president’s demands changed.

The president has often said we need a ‘balanced’ approach — which in Washington means: we spend more. . .you pay more.  Having run a small business, I know those tax increases will destroy jobs.

The president is adamant that we cannot make fundamental changes to our entitlement programs.  As the father of two daughters, I know these programs won’t be there for them and their kids unless significant action is taken now.

The sad truth is that the president wanted a blank check six months ago, and he wants a blank check today.  That is just not going to happen.

You see, there is no stalemate in Congress.  The House has passed a bill to raise the debt limit with bipartisan support.  And this week, while the Senate is struggling to pass a bill filled with phony accounting and Washington gimmicks, we will pass another bill – one that was developed with the support of the bipartisan leadership of the U.S. Senate.

Obviously, I expect that bill can and will pass the Senate, and be sent to the President for his signature.  If the President signs it, the ‘crisis’ atmosphere he has created will simply disappear.  The debt limit will be raised.  Spending will be cut by more than one trillion dollars, and a serious, bipartisan committee of the Congress will begin the hard but necessary work of dealing with the tough challenges our nation faces.

The individuals doing this work will not be outsiders, but elected representatives of the people, doing the job they were elected to do as outlined in the Constitution.  Those decisions should be made based on how they will affect people who are struggling to get a job, not how they affect some politician’s chances of getting reelected.

This debate isn’t about President Obama and House Republicans … it isn’t about Congress and the White House … it’s about what’s standing between the American people and the future we seek for ourselves and our families.

You know, I’ve always believed, the bigger government, the smaller the people.  And right now, we have a government so big and so expensive it’s sapping the drive of our people and keeping our economy from running at full capacity.  The solution to this crisis is not complicated: if you’re spending more money than you’re taking in, you need to spend less of it.

There is no symptom of big government more menacing than our debt.  Break its grip, and we begin to liberate our economy and our future.

We are up to the task, and I hope President Obama will join us in this work.

God bless you and your families, and God bless America.

Props to Speaker Boehner. He was very straightforward and showed real leadership.

In fact, his website might have received too many hits and crashed. It appears the folks out there are tired of the president’s same ol’ class warfare rhetoric.

V-Based-On-Obama

Wonder what you would find if you frisked ABC’s new television show V?

Answer: Could it be based on President Obama?

Whoa now! Is the media getting a little too obsessed with President Obama? Haha, of course! But maybe not when it comes to ABC’s new television show V, which premieres tonight at 8pm/7c.

Check out this review/summary and see what you think:

Imagine this. At a time of political turmoil, a charismatic, telegenic new leader arrives virtually out of nowhere. He offers a message of hope and reconciliation based on compromise and promises to marshal technology for a better future that will include universal health care.

The news media swoons in admiration — one simpering anchorman even shouts at a reporter who asks a tough question: “Why don’t you show some respect?!!” The public is likewise smitten, except for a few nut cases who circulate batty rumors on the Internet about the leader’s origins and intentions. The leader, undismayed, offers assurances that are soothing, if also just a tiny bit condescending: “Embracing change is never easy.”

Who is this starting to sound like? Haha, don’t worry it gets even better:

[…] Oh, wait — did I mention the leader is secretly a totalitarian space lizard who’s come here to eat us?

Welcome to ABC’s V, the final, the most fascinating and bound to be the most controversial new show of the fall television season. Nominally a rousing sci-fi space opera about alien invaders bent on the conquest (and digestion) of all humanity, it’s also a barbed commentary on Obamamania that will infuriate the president’s supporters and delight his detractors.

The aliens — who quickly become known as Vs, for visitors — quickly enthrall their wide-eyed human hosts with their futuristic technology (they set up a chain of medical clinics and promise “to provide medical services to all”) and their mushy we’re-all-brothers political rhetoric, the latter tinged with faint reproach.

The aliens promise universal health-care for everyone??? Hmm… Very interesting. Sounds pretty ‘hopenchangey’ if you ask me. I will have to check out this show on Hulu another night since there will be election coverage on all night!

Side-Note: Maybe the ‘birthers’ have something to go on now. Instead of not being an American born citizen… Is it possible President Obama is from outerspace!? Haha. 😆

HealthCareIllegals

Wonder what you would find if you frisked a group of House Democrats over the issues of immigration and health care?

Answer: Health-care for illegal immigrants!

Hey! I got a great idea: Those who have fooled the system and broke our nation’s laws should definitely be rewarded with health care. Well… that’s what a group of liberals believe:

Fearful that they’re losing ground on immigration and health care, a group of House Democrats is pushing back and arguing that any health care bill should extend to all legal immigrants and allow illegal immigrants some access.

The Democrats, trying to stiffen their party’s spines on the contentious issue, say it’s unfair to bar illegal immigrants from paying their own way in a government-sponsored exchange. Legal immigrants, they say, regardless of how long they’ve been in the United States, should be able to get government-subsidized health care if they meet the other eligibility requirements.

Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said proposals that include government coverage for illegal immigrants leave him incredulous.

“If anybody can, with a straight face, advocate that we should provide health insurance for people who broke into our country, broke our law and for the most part are criminals, I don’t know where they ever would draw the line,” he said.

Mr. King, who opposes Democrats’ health care plans in general, said illegal immigrant access in legislation “would be a poison pill that would cause health care to go down” to defeat.

Twenty-nine Democrats signed on to the letter on legal immigrants, while 21 signed the letter on covering illegal immigrants. Although the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus signed the legal-immigrant letter in their capacity as CBC officials, they signed the other letter as individual members of Congress.

Immigration issues are a touchy subject. A good percentage of the people that make their way into the United States illegally are simply just trying to make an honest living, but with good comes bad:

  • Over 25% of today’s federal prison population are illegal aliens.
  • In Los Angeles, 95% of some 1,500 outstanding warrants for homicides are for illegal aliens. About 67% of the 17,000 outstanding fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.
  • 80,000 to 100,000 illegal aliens who have been convicted of serious crimes are walking the streets. Based on studies they will commit an average of 13 serious crimes per perpetrator.
  • 56% of illegal aliens charged with a reentry offense had previously been convicted on at least 5 prior occasions.
  • Illegal aliens commit at least 2,158 murders each year – a number that represents three times greater participation than their proportion of the population.
  • The overall financial impact of illegal alien crimes is estimated at between $14.4 and $81 billion or more per year. Factor in the crime as a result of the cocaine and other drugs being smuggled in and the number may reach $150 billion per year.

Like I said above… We shouldn’t reward those who constantly break the law.
