Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Carol doesn't get it.
The top 2% pay that much because their share of the income is that much and Carol doesn't see the problem with the rich getting richer & the middle class shrinking & the poor getting poorer.
Carol wants to tax the poor more & give tax breaks to the rich.
We have been experiencing redistribution of wealth for decades. And idiot right whiners don't get it as they want policies that push that redistribution in this direction.
The poor are not only getting poorer but the poverty rate has risen under Obama and more are becoming poor. How will more government spending and taking more from the successful going to change that?

How will a $16 trillion deficit that is climbing to $20 trillion help anyone? How can maintaining the status quo without major reforms or major cuts make a difference to the growing poverty level?

Government can't make people do what they don't want to do - get an education, stay off drugs and addiction and try and become self-reliant.

We've spent millions on the War on Poverty for four or five decades. Nothing has changed - except it's gotten worse.

Dragging the entire country down isn't the solution. When Obamacare kicks in, no one will be exempt from the rising costs. If Obama's plan isn't the right one, it will happen even sooner.

Why do you think Obama's plan - more spending, minimal cuts and giving himself carte blanche on raising the debt ceiling without Congress' approval - the right one? Do you think the rising costs of Obamacare is going to help the middle class and the poor?

You have too much white pride which turns out to be a huge flaw. Most of those old white men at least the republicans turned out to be not a good fit for the position of Commander & chief. You let hate blind you from reality.In thee real world Obama's saved this country from bush's devastation. In your world you think if you say something enough, it will eventually come true.

'The Fiscal Cliff'

10:28AM EST December 6. 2012 - President Obama does some kitchen table campaigning on Thursday, visiting a family in Northern Virginia to sell his tax plan designed to head off the "fiscal cliff."

The president plans to stress the fact that, unless he and Congress agree to a deal over the George W. Bush-era tax cuts, all of them disappear at the end of the year, and all Americans face higher taxes.

Officials did not identify the family Obama will visit, but said one of its members sent an e-mail to the White House "about how paying $2,200 more in taxes next year would impact them if Congress doesn't act."

Solar scam on taxpayers, and the rich get richer
by James Sandefer on Oct. 22, 2011, under Politics

The Wall Street protestors seem to have overlooked an obvious scam on themselves, the latest solar ploy planned and implemented by some of Washington’s heavy hitter insiders.

As a reminder, Solyndra (a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve and part of the Pacific Solar Group/PCG), recently went belly up, as in bankruptcy (they received $535 million in loans from the feds), even after receiving a huge government subsidy for their solar operations. The good news is that the top echelon of the defunct business didn’t lose a cent in the deal and actually came out way ahead on the failure, but 1,100 employees didn’t fare so well after opening their surprise pink slips. Who’d have imagined….

But never fear, the feds are here, and the latest solar charge is being led by none other than “The rich are evil…” Harry Reid along, his curiously quiet cohort Nancy Pelosi, and the perpetual campaigner and fund raiser, President Obama. This time its Tonopah Solar, a company conveniently located in Harry Reid’s state of Nevada, is getting a $737 million loan from the Department of Energy. If you simply listen to the hype you’d think it was one of the most creative, cost effective, worthwhile solar project to date, but let’s turn the page and take a look at some additional facts. And before anyone immediately begins refuting this data please keep in mind that it was released by the Department of Energy last week.

Really Carol, blaming Obama for the rise in poverty caused by the recession that happened before he took office,.

You have absolutely no shame in posting your garbage.

Your problem is that you think people want to be poor. You think they live quite the lifestyle.

The additional spending under the Obama plan to to build infrastructure that we need while helping the construction industry & create jobs.

Those debt ceiling arguments that we have had. Wow, they certainly did a lot of good. Congress passes spending bills but then tells the Executive branch they can't spend it. The debt ceiling is a joke meant to push buttons on the uninformed massses like you.

Here you go again, Obamacare. Obamacare will help the middle class. It insures 30 million people. It saves money for small businesses & individuals who buy insurance as individuals. It slows the rise of costs.

But you avoided the main issue. Why do you insist on looking at the statistics on how much the top 2% pay in taxes as being unfair.

You should look at it as an indication of how much wealth these top 2% of accumulated & how this redistribution of wealth towards the wealthy is widening the gap in this country from the have & have nots.

Marc Rubio said a day or two ago that what makes America so strong & exceptional is not the wealthy. Every country has wealthy people. What makes us great is a strong middle class. And that is is trouble & needs our help.

The Republicans need to quit handing money to rich people at the expense of the poor & middle class.

"Deceipt" spelled correctly or incorrectly has the same meaning.

Why don't we know anymore about what happened in Benghazi than we did in the first few days following the tragedy and why al Qaeda was scratched off the CIA report leading to Rice and Obama giving the American people as well as the UN misleading information two weeks later?

Why didn't all of the promises Obama made never come to fruition?

Why was the promise of immigration reform not a done deal when he had a democrat-controlled congress for two years?

Why was the promise that Obamacare wouldn't cost taxpayers one thin dime contradicted by the CBO in the millions?

Why was the promise of not running a second term if he didn't fix unemployment below 8% not fulfilled?

Why was the promise of a nearly trillion dollar stimulus with nothing to show for it a pie-in-the-sky dud?

These are only the most obvious. The "deceipt" runs deeper than this.

Liberals/Democrats are not serious about solving this Financial Crisis again Reid still playing politics!!

Reid blocks Senate vote on Obama's deficit-reduction plan not surprise this is same senate that’s failed to pass a budget in the past Four Years!! Reid, objected to McConnell’s suggestion, Reid claim McConnell wanted to attach Russian trade bill, HR 6156 to Obama’s deficit-reduction plan McConnell added that he'd be happy to have a stand-alone vote on the president's plan rather than attaching it to legislation as an amendment!! Reid show some Leadership and put it up for a Vote!!

Part two of this cut and paste job is inaccurate__bullsht actually. Solyndra was not a subsidiary of SolarReserve or any other company but was a stand alone manufacturer of what could have been a valuable alternative to silicon solar panels.

Tonopah Solar is not a manufacturer but an in progress solar field/power plant being developed in the Nevada desert (Crescent Dunes) by Solar Reserve, NV power and others.

No one is complaining about paying their fair share of taxes. The tax system is broken like everything else in government.

The Democrats have no problem with that. It's going to have to get pretty bad before it gets better. If it's not too late.
