Video: Obama’s Halftime Report card
Posted by iusbvision on January 14, 2011
This video is a good start but I am going to continue it below so check back every few days to see what comes to light.
1 – Eliminate Bush Tax Cuts – Well you already know about this, but what you might not know is that Democrats do not propose really going after the rich at all. After all how will George Soros and Teresa Heinz Kerry fund the Tides Foundation and all the Democrats 527’s? Instead their tax hike proposals target productive wage earners and small businesses who take in over $250,000 on paper, but in reality most of that is put back into the business so these people are usually not wealthy at all. I will be posting an article soon that will prove to you that Democrats do not and have not had any real intention of taxing the very rich, but instead are very interested in sticking it to the productive. You class envy warriors are going to freak when you see it.
2 – Repeal the Patriot Act – as we said in number eight below, not only was this not repealed, the Democrats doubled down on it. Now we get to ask you if Obama is spying on YOUR library book list!
3 – Cap & Trade – Obama decided to let this die in the Senate without much presidential support. He decided to attempt to legislate on his own by abusing the supposedly highly limited regulation authority given from previous laws (unconstitutional: see Justice Scalia on “junior varsity Congress”).
4 – Illegal Immigrant Amnesty within one year – He had the majority and could have passed it, but knew that he didn’t have the political capital to pull this off and ObamaCare so bye bye.
5 – Close Gitmo – Another dumb idea and when they saw how bad some of the guys there were… well see number 6 below.
6 – Civilian trials for terrorists – A bad idea to begin with. The administration and a few less than sharp legal minds on our current court got a fresh lesson in why JOHNSON V. EISENTRAGER was good case law and should never have been tinkered with.
7 – Sign the Freedom of Choice Act – Umm this bill is no longer a legislative priority…..
8 – Put an end to warrantless wiretapping – Where are the so called “far left privacy advocates” now? The Obama Administration (along with a willing Democratic Leadership in Congress) has consistently (1, 2, 3, 4, 5,) pushed for more domestic spying ability and extended the Patriot Act. More spying includes including wanting more wire taps on the internet and arguing that you have no reasonable expectation of privacy in email or cell phones or… well I think you got the point. Of course who was the first TV personality to speak out on these privacy violations. Clue: He’s the new Oprah.
9 – Limit the influence of lobbyists – Wow. Well here is a list of about 20 links to press reports that remind us why under Obama Big Business Loves Big Government.
10 – Cut income tax for seniors – Well actually even though the deduction rate tables were reduced for one year for many people. Come tax time everyone had to pay up. HERE is a list of the new taxes that have been passed by the Democrats under Obama ($670 billion worth).
