Obama Delivers the Devastating Truth: Republicans are Intentionally Killing the Recovery
By: RmuseMar.
Anyone who has ever had to be the bearer of bad news knows there is no kind way to convey devastating information regardless the best intentions or amount of compassion the messenger feels for the victim. When a doctor reveals the results of a laboratory test indicating a person has cancer, they simply walk in and tell the patient “you have cancer” and offer treatment options or tell them how long they have left to live. Over the past few weeks, President Obama has had the unpleasant task of telling Americans the brutal truth that, without intervention, sequester cuts will adversely affect the economy and be painful to most Americans, and despite earlier admissions the cuts will be damaging, Republicans have made no attempt to find a less-painful replacement. Republicans are notorious for fear mongering on the basis of lies and misinformation, but now they are accusing the President of fear mongering based on truth about the sequester the GOP whole-heartedly supports.
Yesterday House Majority Leader and pathological liar Eric Cantor accused President Obama of touring around the country “scaring people, creating havoc telling Americans their food is going to go uninspected and that our borders will be less patrolled and unsafe” instead of working on a sequester replacement. What Cantor is saying, in effect, is that the sequester is “not that bad,” and it explains Republican intransigence to offer any replacement and why they continue trumpeting their plan from last year’s session of Congress that included only cuts to domestic programs. The President, Senate Democrats, House Democrats, and Progressive Democrats have all proposed sequester replacements Speaker John Boehner refused to allow to come up for a vote because they included revenue and would have passed.
Cantor and many Republicans claim President Obama is intentionally making sequester cuts painful, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said “The President is ready to make it bite as hard as possible — all to send a simple message to the public:‘You want to control Washington spending, America? Fine, let me show you much I can make it hurt.” The problem with McConnell’s remark is that Americans are not making devastating sequester cuts, Republicans are, and they are attempting to morph “the sequester is Obama’s fault” message to “Obama is purposely making sequester cuts to the federal government painful” while they refuse to even consider alternatives except voiding defense cuts and replacing them with more domestic and safety net cuts.
The underlying Republican message is that job-killing and safety net cuts are not painful, and they are cuts Americans controlling spending really want. The truth is Republicans are quietly applauding sequester domestic cuts and want much more, such as those in Paul Ryan’s Heritage Foundation budget, the Path to Prosperity (for the rich). The President has no control over the sequester because Congress is tasked to change the law to avoid across the board cuts. There is no department or program spared (by design), so education, first responders, safety nets, food inspectors, immigration, and aviation safety will all be subject to cuts. When the President says cuts affect the entire government, he is simply telling the truth and now it is what Republicans are revolting against because they have panted for deeper cuts under the guise of “reducing the deficit,”“strengthening the economy,” or “stopping Obama’s out of control record spending spree.” A spending spree, by the way, that is non-existent, and with spending growth at its lowest rates in 60 years, Americans recognize Republican’s are wrong and the nation needs more revenue, according to a recent poll.

Republicans unremittingly harp on one message that, under President Obama, Washington is spending too much money, and it needs to stop, but 67% of Americans reject the “way Republicans in Congress are handling federal spending” including 51% of self-identified Republicans. Republicans are unfazed by Americans’ opinion of their Draconian cuts and Cantor said next week Republicans will resolve to give flexibility to the Department of Defense (DOD) on spending for the rest of the year by letting the DOD start new programs. In another poll, 62% of Republicans and 82% of Democrats are against slashing social programs, and instead prefer cutting military spending to pay down the already rapidly declining deficit. It is typical of Republicans to oppose the will of the people and aid defense programs to survive the sequester while increasing social program cuts that kill jobs, reduce services, and impact hungry children, seniors, and poverty-level working poor Americans.

Republicans are losing the battle in the court of public opinion, even among their own base, and yet to cover their wont to punish 98% of the people to protect the wealthy, oil industry, military industrial complex, and corporations, they are resorting to accusing the President of fear mongering with the truth. However, now that they have abandoned any pretense of avoiding sequester cuts to domestic programs, and admitted the sequester was Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor’s plan, their goal of killing jobs and sending the economy into a recession is finally coming into focus and the President is right to tell Americans the devastating truth; Republicans are deliberately punishing people and reversing economic recovery.

Mr. Obama's failed policies are harming the economy.
He is an incompetent leader that is in charged of an uneducated, lazy and uninformed voter base. Which is topp-off by a liberal amount of media.

Republican Bush Lied about IRAQ and over 4000 Died with about 35,000 injuries.

I don't know how much truth in this article, but the American
government loves war. It's a jobs program for Generals and a
government welfare program for the companies in the military
industrial complex.

These two quotes say it all:

War is the health of the state

When we vote Ron Cyrus out of Office ,he said he wanted lower taxes,better schools and jobs,instead he raises LAND TAXES,CUTS THE SCHOOL BUDGET AND STILL NO JOBS.Just as bush sent jobs to china. Republicans lie,

Obama made more Jobs In February again.making 38 months of making jobs,still not enought but Republican Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Republicans in Congress has stopped President Obama on making jobs,rebuilding bridges,roads,building, They can make one million jobs tomorrow if the Republicans would Help Your President,But Since he is HALF WHITE the Republicans hate him,because all republicans are racist.

Cyrus wasted tax dollars building that new building off highway 111,when Overton County had empty building to put factories,

Now Cyrus wants a new Courthouse, another two and a half Million dollars just for the building not counting the land..The Joe L.Evans Building should be remodeled and put the courthouse there,saving 2/3 of the money cyrus wants to build a new building using tax dollars,and raising taxes again on Democrats and Republicans.

Cyrus is NO manager or leader,and he has made the worse leader Overton County has ever had.

Just goes to show how impotent the Democratic Party is.

Own the White House and the senate and cannot get your way.

Obama went around this country for 2 years talking about bridges,roads and other infastructure as well.Well those jobs werent real either he even said as much.He even had a big laugh about and said those shovel ready jobs werent so shovel ready after all.I would say that was a big lie.That makes him a liar as well right?To call somebody as racist is broad subject I remember seeing George Wallace standing in the school door trying to stop a young African American kids trying to get an equal education I woild call you a hypocrite but that name is to good to use on you.

Remember Copeland and HEFT? How about Copeland and his connections with Wendy Askins and all that waste? How about the lettuce plant and the 300 jobs that were to be....only 80 at best, I think that was Mr. Mitchell. Not to mention how much over market that was paid for the property there on 111. Yes, Cyrus is the worst we've ever had.

The President hasnt sent a budget to neither the senate or congress in over 4 years.His first try ended with a vote in the senate of 97 to 0 against.Not one single democrat voted with the president.At this rate of spending the taxpayers money our debt will hit 20 trillion in just another 4 years but it seems like youre ok with that.Bush is gone now Obama is president.
