View Full Version : Why do the democrats hate the unemployed?
Out of a $789,000,000,000.00 stimulus package, a mere 1.26% of it would fund the unemployment extension which just failed in the US senate.
This pittance of an amount would satisfy the new democrat congressional "PAYGO" rule and would have easily have picked up the three votes needed.
Why can't this heartless thugocracy find such a small slice of the taxpayer funded pie to help Americans which are hurting?
The US taxpayer was told that the stimulus package would halt unemployment at 8% ... we are now well over 9% for over a year straight.
Why can't they find it in their cold, cruel hearts to use such a tiny sliver of the stimulus funds to help those who are suffering from the regimes self confessed miscalculation of the impact the bill would have on unemployment rates?
Why are they intent on seeing that America fails?
Where is the compassion?

They already have that money. Why would they want to give it back to the public? They still want more, and they are trying to blame the reps for the bill not passing.
They took more tax money in one vote than any other congress in history. Asking them to actually spend it to help Americans seems quite reasonable to most.
Making sure families have money to spend on food and mortgage payments would do more for the economy than some pie in the sky high speed rail system years from now.
These guys are really pizzing me off!!!!!!!!
It would be nice if, just once, the Obamatrons would reject the spoon and look at reality.

The new nutty 28%
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The President continued and later blasted the Republicans and called out the GOP rhetoric, ďIím doing because I said I was going to do it and itís the right thing to do, and people should learn that lesson about me, because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, <span style='font-size: 20pt'>I hope people who are hollering about deficits and debt start stepping up, because Iím calling their bluff </span>and weíll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments theyíre making right now are real and how much of it was just policies.Ē
Once again, Obama is three steps ahead of the GOP. He is warning them what is coming, but they will still not be ready for what is about to hit them when he steps up and challenges them to join him and cut spending in order to trim the deficit. <span style='font-size: 17pt'>In an earlier portion of the press conference Obama made mention of cutting programs that donít work, including military programs. Military contracts are one of Congressí and especially the right wing deficit cutters favorite sources of pork, disguised as national security spending, so you can expect cries of national security as soon as Obama tries to shave a penny or remove a bloated contract.
If Obama does try to trim the fat, you can expect both Democrats and Republicans in Congress to engage in a collective chorus of wails. The dirty little secret of Congress is everyone talks about reducing the deficit, but they all love to spend. Republicans definitely have no credibility on this issue, as the tax cut and spend policies of the Bush administration and the Republican run Congress had, within five years, managed to take a surplus and turn it into a herculean deficit.
By July of 2006, before the Democrats took control of Congress, George W. Bush and the Republican controlled Congress managed to turn a $284 billion surplus into a trillion dollar deficit. At the time, Bush and the GOP owned <span style='font-size: 17pt'>four of the five highest yearly deficits in US history.</span> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The political reality is that Republicans have little interest in cutting spending <u>and absolutely no interest in helping Obama,</u></span> so I can already tell you how this will go. Obama will try. Republicans will obstruct, and Obama will reap the political benefits. However,<u> it s clear that Obama is done playing games with the GOP and is now ready to challenge them to put their money where there mouths are, so to speak, and <u>the Republican leopard will most definitely reveal its true spots.</u></u></div></div>
Neither can I ... it is quite callous to punish the victims of the regime's failed policies.
