Barack Obama, our next President

(MoneyWatch) It is late October, so Adrianne Flowers is out of money to buy food for her family. That is no surprise. Feeding five kids is expensive, and the roughly $600 in food stamps she gets from the federal government never lasts the whole month. "I'm barely making it," said the 31-year-old Washington, D.C., native and single mother.

Starting Friday, the money is likely to run out even quicker.

That is when Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits are set to fall for more than 47 million lower-income people -- 1 in 7 Americans -- most of whom live in households with children, seniors or people with disabilities. Barring congressional intervention, the maximum payment for a family of four will shrink from $668 a month to $632, or $432 over the course of a year.

That amounts to 21 meals per month, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts will leave participants in the program, better known as food stamps, with an average of $1.40 to spend on each meal. The amount people get could sink even more if Congress makes deeper cuts later this year when House and Senate lawmakers try to hammer out a farm bill.

The Nov. 1 benefit cuts "will be close to catastrophic for many people," said Ross Fraser, a spokesman for Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity, which estimates that this week's SNAP reduction will result in a loss of nearly 2 billion meals for poor families next year.

This being said I was behind a lady at Food Lion this morning. She was buying stuff on EBT. She was having trouble. The lady stated quite proudly that she was a new grandma, as rightly so. She brought out the card and said she was new to this. She swiped the card and the cashier said it was denied. She said "Oh I got one from the dad let me try it". One baby two cards. She didn't see anything wrong with that! That is the problem. Tremendous amount of fraud.

YES! That's how you do it. President Obama threatened to bring the hammer down on them and got it done!
He's brilliant; that's why he pisses off these teapartyers.
Easing off from being seen as the "policeman of the world" might have been a good thing temporarily.

But the problem with Syria is the world now sees us as wimps. This president tried to back off from his "red line" threat by pointing to Congress, the UN and the world as the ones who said it.

Allowing Putin to come to the rescue, one bad guy in cahoots with the other bad guy, to resolve the other bad guy's WMD threat blurs the lines of who is the leader on the world stage.

It's not a good idea for the United States to back down and allow Communist countries to take the lead on the world stage.

It brings into question leadership or cowardice on the part of this president in the eyes of the world.

This president has not once condemned the atrocities committed on Christians around the world which has become an epidemic.

He is too focused on himself, restoring his signature legislation and his legacy.

How can this possibly be seen as leadership? Remaining silent is much too close to condoning it.

Ignoring evil won't protect us from it. When was the last time this president said anything about the unrest in the Middle East and Africa? It's seems like "out of sight, out of mind" with this president. After the Syrian debacle, it's almost like the enemy doesn't even exist anymore.

Where is this president in the midst of all the unrest and instability playing out on the world stage? He's campaigning for Obamacare in Massachusetts.

Higher Taxes, Not Cuts, Are Reason For Smaller Deficit And Slowing Economy
1 Comment
By J.T. YOUNG
Posted 10/02/2013 06:29 PM ET
Spending cuts, it turns out, have not had a big effect on the U.S. deficit after all. That credit should go instead to the overlooked American taxpayer, who's responsible for increasing federal revenues more than twice as much as the government has lowered spending.

With such a disparity, why do liberals and the media continue to claim spending cuts are having a greater economic impact than higher taxes?

Before we get too lost in euphoria over a falling deficit, we should remember it's still large. Granted, it seems smaller compared to the record peacetime deficits before it — the way the obese people look thinner when standing next to the morbidly obese.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, through the first 10 months of fiscal year 2013, the deficit is $606 billion and projected to reach $642 billion for the whole year. That equates to 4% of GDP — the highest since 1992 were it not for the GDP shares in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, which averaged well over 8%.

But in search of a silver lining in this gray cloud raining red ink, the federal deficit is down $368 billion from a year ago. Yet in Washington where "balanced approaches" and "fairness" have become budgetary buzzwords, this deficit reduction has been anything but fair and balanced.

This year's drop is due to revenues that have increased $278 billion while outlays have decreased $90 billion.

When CBO factors out so-called "timing shifts," the disproportion diminishes, but doesn't disappear.

In this comparison, revenue is up $278 billion, or almost 14%, and spending is down $116 billion, or 4%.

Yet even this slightly rosier scenario isn't so rosy. While revenues are up across the board, the lower spending largely reflects $87 billion in favorable payment flows from government entities Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

This is good news, but a one-time event. The real spending cuts are located in defense ($36 billion) and unemployment ($20 billion).

Liberals are likely to balk at this 10-month comparison, because this year's tax increases began Jan. 1 while spending cuts under sequestration didn't start until March 1.

But look at budget totals from July alone. Again, using CBO's latest estimates and taking outlay "timing shifts" into account, federal revenues were up $15 billion and federal spending up $5 billion — combining for $10 billion in deficit reduction from the same month a year earlier.

Once again, hardly shared sacrifice.

If Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) claims the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) warned Wednesday, the GOP will have effectively destroyed itself.
“If I didn’t care so much about our country, I would hope he would get the Republican nomination for president, because that would mean the end of the Republican Party,” Reid told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
"He stands for everything America doesn't," Reid added.
Democrats have boasted recently that Cruz has only done them favors. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said last month that the Texas Republican's 21-hour talkathon aimed at defunding Obamacare "advanced our cause."
After the government shutdown came to an end earlier this month, Reid said Cruz "can't talk down to anyone anymore."

attack DB!
Reid is indirectly correct. If the tea party movement organizes as a Conservative Party, they will dominate and the Republican Party will quickly become a third party about the size of the Libertarians, soon to disappear.

Probably a good thing.
