Democrats, especially older Democrats, are highly upset about Medicare “cuts.” (See above). However, there exists, as usual with many Democrats and their unyielding allegiance to Obama, an anti-GOP resentment that spawns its own double standard. The Ryan Medicare plan to establish “cuts” to the program has drawn an incredible amount criticism. Okay, blinded Obama supporting mindless Modern Liberals, ask yourselves this; why is the Ryan plan even on the table today?
It is on the table because Obama has egregiously failed in all matters fiscal. Look at it this way. The last fiscal task Obama fully completed was the stimulus! Not so much as a completed FY budget followed! Now, understanding this aptitude of personal agenda prioritization over needed fiscal responsibility, ask your marginally minded self; why he could accomplish passing the stimulus on a package that not one single elected official was granted the chance to read in full, but could not oversee the passing of a single budget? (Answer in a moment). These budget lapses evolved into a debt ceiling debate. Here, we have no budgets passed in more than 800 days followed by a demanding of the people more money be spent. It gets worse.
The debt ceiling debate never really ended. All they have done was pass the buck by creating a “Super Congress” that will convene on the debt ceiling issue NEXT FISCAL YEAR! In doing so, they raised the debt ceiling. Not even 48 hours later, the federal government set a new spending record. (Tough to blame Bush for that, but you will figure out a way to do it). As Savage said on the debt debate, the nation has been “hoodwinked.” Because Obama FAILED yet again on budget issues, the door was reopened for the Ryan plan that Leftists seem to hate so much. Obama allowed this because he wanted to SPEND TODAY, before Congress could implement any changes in the spending structure. Silly, silly, foolish, gullible people. It is timely to mention at this juncture, the passing of FY budgets contain changes in spending structure; something Obama has side stepped since he has been in office. (The answer to the above non-rhetorical question). But no, many are pissed at Ryan because he wants to “cut” Medicare. Tsk, tsk, tsk. First, the door was opened for Ryan before America's very eyes, and yes, America has been played by the Progressive Idol. However, I digress, if a person is pissed at Ryan (and the words against him were HEATED and laden with HATE); why are they not pissed at Obama? Not for passively and deceptively allowing the Ryan plan come to the fruition of opportunity, but for the Medicare and Medicaid cuts that OBAMA SOUGHT?! That’s right, Obama sought cuts to your beloved program, but you hate Ryan for doing what your leader has attempted to do because he from another Party! You are a shameful and prejudicial American blinded to reality through your own ignorance. (Someone has to tell you the truth). Perhaps now, more will seek complete sources of news information that tell you what you need to hear and not just what Obama wants you to hear. Follower, pull up your skirt, grab your balls and demonstrate some independent thought already!
Back to our beloved single mother.
Republicans blame Democrats and Democrats blame Republicans. Interestingly, they say the EXACT SAME THINGS ABOUT EACH OTHER! “How Republicans ruined the economy.” “How Democrats have put their interests before the economic needs of the people.” We can go on and on and in every phrase, accusation and claim, one could interchange the words Democrat and Republican. They all however, culminate into this fill in the blank assertion against the other. “_______ s hate America!” Have you stopped to think both sides may be Correct? Such a statement sounds extreme because of the rhetorical and largely inappropriate use of the word “hate.” It is not that a given Party “hate”(s) America, it is that they are now so far removed from American civil objectives, they have now FORSAKEN America. Try this on for size. “Democrats have forsaken America.” Nice fit huh? (Good thing this is not the OJ trail). If we say that for Democrats, we can effectively establish the same for Republicans. Their agenda items differ, but the fiscal tools to enable their agendas remain the same. Spend more! This is why both Parties have allowed the deficit spending to continue.
The fiscal problem is easily solvable. Trouble is, we simply lack the QUALITY of elected class needed to solve it. They solely wish to spend, just as our single mother has failed her children, the collective political class will fail their constituents. We see this in the other while denying its existence in those whom we support. If Ryan is wrong for seeking to cut Medicare, Obama is equally wrong. If Bush was wrong for increasing the deficit spending (which the WHOLE WORLD agrees upon) Obama is MORE wrong for criticizing it in order to perpetuate the spending while further failing to pass budgets in order to retain spending structures existing since Bush’s final year. You ain’t slick B.O., I know what you have been up to you naughty boy you! … wait, I said boy… was that racist of me?! Idiots.
As this brings us to today, BOTH sides have presented debt ceiling increases backed by a plan that HAS YET TO BE DEVELOPED! Foolish and yet some still back what is happening. What they actually support is the economic thievery of their own offspring. Those, whom have found voice to protest it, seem to be protesting based upon the inaccuracies presented by the side they support. In short, they are protesting the very thing their side is doing, has done, has tried to do, or is planning to do. The two sides are largely one in the same when it comes to spending.
The shopping list differs a bit, but they have committed themselves to spending. America's future has already been spent, they are now working on Jr.’s and the III’s future. I highly suggest that the blinders of party affiliation be removed until such a time that Liberal vs. Conservative values are truly at play. Today, on this issue, that is simply not the case. Cut the BS, wake up, self educate and start looking at this for what it actually is. You cannot pull the party line on this one because pulling it makes you the problem, not the solution.
Ahhh. I feel better now.
