A trillion taxpayer dollars wasted here and another trillion or so wasted over there, and we still have unemployment over 9%. So what is an incumbent President to do to get reelected under such dismal U/E numbers, considering that in all of modern U.S. electoral history no sitting President has ever been reelected with an U/E rate over 7.2% ? As the economists, bloggers and media mouthpieces across the nation tell us every single day, the 2012 election will be all about JOBS, JOBS, JOBS. So what is a president to do to make it appear as if he is creating the number of new jobs that America needs to point to a real recovery of the going-on-3-year-Obama-recession that we face today?
The Obama administration has already added a very large number of taxpayer-funded employees to the government payroll in the last 3 years, ( 379k in Obama first year alone here) which adds to the already skyrocketing yearly deficits, and decreases actual operating funds for other government programs, as common sense business calculations prove. The Obama administration and the current crop of Liberal fake democrats in Congress today just can not seem to grasp the reality of these facts. In keeping with the Liberal big government expansion of the last few years that has proven to be a huge part of our current economic problems of finding and authorizing funding for such important programs as FEMA and transportation projects. This points directly at a serious cash flow problem within the U. S. government today, yet Barack Obama seems to think that expanding the government even further will magically reduce our deficits. That statement is proven by the latest big government expansion plot that was exposed in this article by Ben Howe over at RedState.com: EPA Calls Compliance With Own Law “Absurd or Impossible” and Requests 230k new Employees. We have to wonder how the Extreme Political Activists at the EPA came up with that number in their recently demanded increase of taxpayer funded government employees. Why not just round it off and ask for a quarter of a million new government climate change propagandists and business-bullies posing as ” EPA regulators” and assorted pencil pushers? Ben Howe also outlined how the EPA is actually breaking their own laws in trying to assist Obama’s plan to expand big government and increase it’s power over the people.. at taxpayers expense, of course. Government jobs do not increase government revenue, contrary to Liberal ideology where bigger government is their solution to everything.
As stated above, these new jobs would serve the purpose of enforcing all of the new regulations under the Clean Air Act which was created by the EPA in 2009. So why are courts involved? Because the EPA is deliberately violating the very Clean Air Act they are intending to enforce.
Mr Howe went on to cite how The Institute for Energy Research used sections of the EPA’s very own court brief in showing how ludicrous this big government expansion truly is, and the EPA’s own stated reasons for it, which included the following very informative tidbits:
Sources needing operating permits would jump from 14,700 to 6.1 million as a result of application of Title V to greenhouse gases, a 400-fold increase.…Hiring the 230,000 full-time employees necessary to produce the 1.4 billion work hours required to address the actual increase in permitting functions would result in an increase in Title V administration costs of $21 billion per year. (emphasis mine)
There we see that during the current harsh economic times that forces households across America to cut back on their budget to make ends meet, Obama appointee Lisa Jackson and company at the EPA want to strap another 230k government paychecks onto the backs of the working class taxpaying citizens. Instead of accepting the obviously painful fact that our government must be cut back to stem the bleeding known as our $1.5 trillion dollar deficits that led to the first U.S credit downgrade in American history due to increasing our debt load, these lunatics want to expand big government exponentially. Considering that democratic operative James Carville stated that the Democratic Party was set up for a 40-year dynasty after Obama was elected, we now see how big government expansion fits into their long-term plans to remain in power. The Extreme Political Activists that Obama has installed into the EPA have been bypassing Congress for years and trying to create laws by passing new regulations, which a federal judge explained in detail from The New Media Journal:
Federal Judge Slaps Down EPA”s Attempt to Create law by Regulation
A federal court has sharply rebuked the EPA for exceeding its statutory authority. On May 26, 2011, Judge Richard Leon of the federal district court for the District of Columbia ruled that the agency’s regulatory process cannot trump a clear Congressional mandate, nor override judicial authority to compel EPA’s compliance with the law. (emphasis mine)
In summary we see that the EPA is caught making laws by regulation by over-stepping their authority more and more every day. The Extreme Political Activists of today feel that they are somehow above the rule of law. Now they want another 230,000 taxpayer funded employees to continue their march towards a Liberal Socialist agenda of crushing businesses, and stealing hard-earned wealth through over-regulation based on their phony climate change propaganda. When will the American public stand up to these tyrants and demand an end to the EPA? Not a stiff cut in taxpayer funding, but a complete end to this Marxist manipulation of our system of government by the Extreme Activists in the EPA ? You can also bet the bank that if Obama and Jackson manage to pull this power-grab/snow-job of a massive increase in taxpayer-funded EPA employees over on Congress, we will see liberals across the land using those 230k jobs to try to paint themselves as being the real job creation saviors of the middle class in America. Those soundbites might sound good for about a week, until the middle class citizens actually get the bill for it, which will come in the form of higher taxes once again.
