The Solution The House Republicans Should Propose

As President Obama and Harry Reid continue to push for higher taxes (on everyone) while not offering any immediate spending cuts to elevate America’s fiscal crisis of spending $1 Trillion + more than it is binging in year after year, there is only one real solution that seems to be viable. Unfortunately, the House Republicans lead by John Boehner (if you can call what he does “leadership”) don’t seem willing to propose it. Continue reading

Obama’s End Game

When it comes to avoiding the “fiscal cliff”, Obama’s end game is clear. He will accept no deal unless it raises taxes on the “rich” (who he hates despite being rich himself) and preserves all current spending on entitlement programs with new spending tacked on top of that. He has no intention of solving our debt crisis, even though he regularly yaps his trap and claims such. Continue reading

A Warning To All The Takers

I just want to give a warning all the takers out there who voted for Barack Obama and brought us to the edge of tax increases starting in 2013. See, my wife and I aren’t rich. But together we do make around $100,000 a year and are on tap to see our taxes go up between $3,000 and $4,000 because liberals, such as yourselves, think that it is right to take more from the doers to pay you way through life with Obama Phones, Food Stamps, Government Controlled Medicine, etc. Continue reading

Prepare For The Tantrums To Get Worse

With the “fiscal cliff” looming before us, it is time to warn you that this Christmas Season the only thing you are likely to receive are worsening tantrums from Washington. Most of these tantrums will come from liberal Democrats. Although, make no mistake, there will be many coming from liberal Republicans too.

The Truth Is Obama Has Failed To Create Any Jobs At All

President Obama would LOVE to take credit for jobs being created, any jobs being created. But when one looks at the facts of his tenure as President, we can see that, if anything, jobs have only been created in spite of him. He’s talking about these 5 million jobs he has created? Hardly. Continue reading

Will Jeremy Have a Job When He Graduates?

Jeremy Epstein opened Tuesday’s town hall style debate with the following question:

“Mr. President, Governor Romney, as a 20-year-old college student, all I hear from professors, neighbors and others is that when I graduate, I will have little chance to get employment.
