House Budget Proposal Votes Tell an Interesting Truth

On Wednesday, March 28th 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives voted on 3 different budget proposals, all that ended up with the same results of being shot down by huge numbers. One budget proposal went down in flames by an astounding vote of 0-414.  Rick Mulvaney (R-SC) proposed an alternative budget plan based on President Obama’s 2013 budget numbers and it went down in an historic 0-414 vote. Not one vote in support of Obama’s 2013 budget. Mulvaney went on to explain that “The budget that the President offered and that is contained in this amendment never balances,” he said. “It is a balanced approach to reach a never-balancing budget.”

 Thus Obama’s budget proposal is exposed as nothing more than increased government spending under the guise of Obama’s often-used motto stating his desire to a “balanced approach in creating a budget.” And don’t forget the always-included tax hikes present in every Liberal Democrat [balanced] budget proposal of the past 5 years.  Nothing proves these points more emphatically than the Obama-Democrat yearly deficits since 2007, which have averaged over $1 trillion dollars in increased national debt since the year Democrats took over complete control of the U.S. Congress.

The CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) put forth their own pathetic attempt of a  budget proposal also on Wednesday. It went down in flames by a vote of 107-314.  Republicans stated that the CBC budget proposal would spend far more money than the U.S. government has available. No surprise there. Why does the U.S. Congress even have a Black Caucus anyway? There isn’t an Asian caucus, or even a White caucus, even though white people still make up a huge majority of the population today.  With the current race-baiting media circus of the Trayvon Martin tragedy being used by fake Democrats to further divide the nation this week, maybe it’s high time Americans call for the immediate disbanding of the discriminatory CBC.

The third budget proposal voted down in The House on Wednesday was a bi-partisan proposal put forth by Steve LaTourette (R-OH) and Jim Cooper (D-Tenn) that was modeled after many aspects of the Obama-created Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction commission. This proposal too went down in flames 38-382. Instead of responsible governing by enacting solid cuts in big government debt-spending, 382 members of The House have now been exposed as being the main engine of America’s plunge off the Greek-style debt-cliff.

Up next will be the passage of the Paul Ryan House budget proposal 2.0. Chris Chocola breaks down Ryan’s new proposal as follows: (emphasis added)

There’s a lot to like about Paul Ryan’s budget proposal. It cuts some spending. It flattens the tax code down to just two individual marginal tax rates. It also includes some innovative policies designed to halt the unsustainable growth of health care entitlement spending. However, on balance, the budget is disappointing for fiscal conservatives for two main reasons: It waives the spending restraint that was agreed to in last year’s debt limit deal, and it doesn’t balance the budget until 2040. Broken promises and unbalanced budgets as far as the eye can see are neither good policy nor a good campaign rallying cry.

As informed Americans stand on the edge of the Greek-style debt cliff looking out across the debt-laden landscape of their children’s future,when looking at the current budgetary buffoonery of Congress today, they are being left with 2 simple choices: Vote for Obama and the Democrats in 2012 and jump to their deaths right then and there, or vote for Republicans and hop on back of the slow-moving freight train that is on the exact same track of financial disaster as the Obama high-speed train to financial hell and chaos.  One kills you this decade, while the other slowly pushes you off the debt-cliff to the inevitable chaotic collapse of America and the Armageddon that financial insolvency brings with it. Not much of a choice there is it?

 

Obama Speaks To The Congressional Black Caucus That Called Herman Cain An "Oreo"

On Saturday (September 24, 2011) President Barack Obama spoke to the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). Responding to allegations that he not doing enough to ease black unemployment (which is currently 16.7%), and is “giving in” too much to Republicans, he said, “Take off your bedroom slippers. Put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complainin’. Stop grumblin’. Stop cryin’. We are going to press on. We have work to do.” He also said, “It gets folks discouraged. I know. I listen to some of y’all. I need your help.” Acknowledging that blacks have suffered from this recession, he continued, “So many people are still hurting. So many people are barely hanging on.” Then he added, “And so many people in this city are fighting us every step of the way.”

But not everyone is convinced by Obama’s speech. Erik Todd Dellums, a blog writer and actor who is the son of former Rep. Ron Dellums (D-CA) said, “I don’t think that the president is leading from a place of compassion. I think he’s leading from a place of fear right now. I don’t really understand what is going on.” “The president is in a unique place and I think he’s failing himself truly. And I think, race has something to do with this,” said Dellums.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) caused a commotion in August, 2011, when she asked black constituents, …”let us know it is time to let go, we’ll let go.” “Our people are hurting,” said Waters. “The unemployment is unconscionable; we don’t know what the strategy is. We don’t know why on this trip [Obama’s “Jobs” bus tour] that he’s in the United States, not in any black communities, we don’t know that.” The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president too. We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired, ya’ll. We’re getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he’s prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting.”

BTW, that is same CBC that is now calling the Tea Party “racist” and is calling Rep. Herman Cain (and Rep. Allen West) “oreos.” Several CBC members questioned the “blackness” of Cain and West, and at least one called them “oreos” – a racial slur meaning one who is “black on the outside, but white on the inside.” The definition is as racist as one can get, but these CBC members had no problem using it.

Several CBC members said the Tea Party is racist because it came into existence during the Obama Administration, with one member calling it a response to “having a black man in office.” That, for the CBC, was proof the group is racist. “They came about at a time where most of America was relishing in the fact that the country had changed in a symbolic way and an African-American was elected President,” one CBC member said.

Perhaps this country did not NEED a Tea Party before Obama became president.

But that’s just my opinion.

Black Group Sues Democratic Party for Racial Discrimination/Demands Apology From Obama

  A class action lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court in Seattle, Washington against the Democratic Party of America for it’s long history of racial discrimination against African-Americans. The lead plaintiff is listed as one Wayne Perryman, an African-American Minister, author and community organizer from Mercer, Washington.  This group is neither a small group of rabble-rousing trouble-makers out to make a name for themselves in a publicity stunt, nor are they in this for money. They are in fact, not suing for a dime, but instead are demanding an apology for the Democratic Party of America’s longstanding and continuing racial discrimination against black Americans stretching from the year 1792 right up to 2011. Mr Perryman also names the President of the United States as a defendant in the lawsuit, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, seeing as he is the head of the Democratic Party today, and because of things Barack wrote in his book Dreams From My Father.

   Apparently Barack Obama played it a little too cool, for Mr Perryman’s liking when he sent a letter to President Obama back in 2009, demanding that President Obama issue a national apology for his Democratic Party’s long time discrimination against blacks, and to which Obama either completely ignored, or flat out refused to do. Either way President Obama didn’t make the public apology, so now it is going to court demanding nothing more than an apology from Obama on the behalf of the Democratic Party of America. After the news of this lawsuit gets out, I,m betting someone will be called to the White House for maybe another beer summit, to say the least. This is the last thing Obama needs to deal with, while running around the country in campaign mode 24/7.  I,m sure the questions will be asked as to why he refused to offer up a simple apology for the proven Democratic Party transgressions against blacks throughout American history. Just like when Mr. Perryman sent him the letter demanding the apology, Mr. Obama will simply refuse to acknowledge it, let alone to answer the questions.

A press release from The Frederick Douglas Foundation  lays out some pretty heady stuff about the merits of this lawsuit, and just who is behind it:

The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as “Father of Racism,” allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery and Jim Crow laws and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011.

The case cites the collective work of over 350 legal scholars and includes Congressional records, case law, research from our nation’s top history professors, racist statements from Democratic elected officials, citations from the Democrat’s National Platforms regarding their support of slavery, excepts of speeches from Senator Obama, individual testimonies from blacks who lived in the Jim Crow South and opinions from the NAACP.

Perryman said, “Any organization that has such a racist history and receives 97% of the African American vote (after doing all they could to deny blacks the right to vote), should willingly apologize without being forced do so through a lawsuit. He said, “I guess they feel they have nothing to apologize for.”

 

 We have to wonder if any of the Congressional Black Caucus members pictured here will be willing to maybe give a little bit of their microphone/TV time to utter this apology instead of devoting it to their recent barrage of ignorant, racist rhetoric like calling Tea Party folks terrorists, and saying that Republicans want to hang them all up from a tree?  As we see in the paragraph above, the CBC isn’t the only one who is referring to Jim Crow laws, as many blacks who lived in the Jim Crow South have testified about the Democrat’s history of discrimination and are in fact, including those documents in their brief. How about it Maxine Waters? Will you tell this group of black professors, scholars and top history professors to go to hell too, just like you told the Tea Party which we saw broadcast on national TV?  How about Barack Obama giving up 10 minutes of  his seemingly 24/7 Hollywood movie-star-like desires to be seen and heard on our TV’s 7 days a week to tell us about the Democrat’s long-standing history of discrimination against blacks, lawsuit here? Hang on a minute here, do any of our readers think for just one minute that Barack Obama is going to admit how his Democratic Party has oppressed and discriminated against black Americans while at the same time, begging for their very important support for another four years in office?  Didn’t think so.
