Ever notice how Pres. Obama and the liberals in Congress go to great lengths to place the onus of their own reckless spending on to the American people, or the prior administration? It’s as if these shameless politicians are declaring that the people made them go on a spending spree.
Although spending was quite high during the George Bush years, two wars were being fought, and the spending was nowhere near the astronomical borrowing and deficit spending currently underway with the Dems. Democrats often claim that the American people want them to lead, and have a burning desire for change. Really?
Since when did the American people request bailouts for Chrysler, GM, and several major financial institutions? When did they cry out for a stimulus plan (ARRA), a bloated budget, or the raising of the debt ceiling? Where are all these Americans who demanded that our federal government take over health care? Did the people plead with the Feds to escalate deficit spending, and the national debt?
I bet we’d be hard pressed to find many Americans who endorse spending trillions of non-existent dollars on highly dubious Ponzi schemes. Yet the Dems continue the same old mantra that they are only doing what the people want. If that is the case, then why do the Dems exhort businesses and individuals to live within their means, while the current administration in D.C. does the opposite? Indeed, if the Dems are acting in the interests of Americans, why has the gargantuan spending done little to spur the economy?
Crisscrossing America, Obama is selling Obamacare as a real bargain, as he trots out folks who have suffered due to a lack of insurance. He knows full well that anyone who wants to be insured could be if interstate commerce laws allowed folks to shop for health insurance around the country, as they can with other types of insurance. Moreover, medical care could be more affordable if there were fewer regulations on health care delivery by doctors and hospitals. Granted, doctors and hospitals could police themselves better by curtailing unnecessary procedures and tests.
Whenever the Dems assert that they are working for the American people, be very wary indeed. What they really mean is that they are laboring to enhance their own control and power over the American people, in order to perpetuate a state of government dependency. People don’t make the government spend, because in most cases the Dems ignore the will of most Americans. Indeed, most folks want the government to get off their backs, and stick to the liberty enhancing core principles that the founders enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
