AMAC: there’s a ‘foul odor’ coming from the deal to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling

This was no confrontation between them and the Republicans;

it was a showdown between them and the people of this country.

WASHINGTON, DC, Oct 18 – “There’s a foul odor emanating from the nation’s capital that should have Americans wrinkling their noses. It’s the stench of a political power-grab undertaken by ideologues intent on usurping the Constitutional rights of the people,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

Weber said the bargain that ended the partial shutdown of the government and raised the nation’s debt limit was a “deal with the devil. We, the people, wanted reasonable concessions in exchange for the extension of credit-things like spending cuts and controls, a health care law that would treat us and those who enacted the law the same way and much-needed checks on the growth and power of government. We got none of these things because President Obama and his Democratic henchmen dug in their heels and refused to negotiate with us. This was no confrontation between them and the Republicans on the Hill; it was a showdown between them and the people of this country. They threatened rack and ruin and forced us to give in.”

But the AMAC chief noted, it may all come back to bite them. For example, he said, even the president’s closest allies were “appalled by his mule-headed intransigence regarding the request for a delay of Obamacare. Some of his friends even went so far as to call him an inept leader. And, it’s made the mainstream media see the light.”

Weber cited the newspapers that endorsed him, like his hometown paper, the Chicago Tribune, which editorialized this week saying: “There is a growing mountain of evidence that Obamacare has fundamental problems in design and implementation.”

Weber said that the Tribune went on to say what AMAC has been saying all along: “The administration cut a sweet deal for Congress and its staffers, who will continue to get generous federal subsidies. It has allowed any number of carve-outs for special pleaders. A delay in the individual mandate would not be a special favor to American consumers. It’s a matter of fairness.”

Weber said that Obamacare is only part of the problem. “The president has demanded an unfettered trillion dollar extension of his line of credit in the face of dire warnings that upping the debt limit without spending cuts is lunacy. His own Comptroller, Eugene Louis Dodaro, told him that current spending is ‘unsustainable.’ The president’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Michael Mullen, meanwhile warned that the size of our national debt is the greatest threat to our national security. But Mr. Obama remains aloof, seemingly disdainful of anyone who dares to criticize his intrusive authority.”

    Well at least Ole Mitch got his bridge for Kentucky…reminded me of Landau (D) La. & how her vote for the Obama Care vote got her a bag of gold to take home……I’m still doing the math to find out just how many “bridges to nowhere” could be bought with what this so called shutdown costs. ??

    HHHHgh!

    Obama guaranteed they would be reelected in 2014 if they went along. That was the deal! He plans to remove as many of them as he can who oppose him. He fixed the 2012 election and he plans to fix much more of the 2014 elections. He isn’t worred because he knows the outcome.

    You don’t believe me?

    Watcha and see.

    America is getting what she deserves. Inept leadership for a citizenry who has allowed followers of Saul Alinsky to rule them. The takers outnumber the workers, and it will not change. We’ve murdered an entire generation of workers on the altar of expediency and women’s “rights”, on a downward spiral to oblivion. Maranatha!!
