The Obama administration and the Democrats are on an unconstitutional, intimidation, deception rampage! It isn't slight either. It's an arrogant in-your-face rampage while too many gullible people take it with applause and a smile, and some even try to defend it.
I am not saying that Republicans as a group have a stellar record of doing what needs to be done. There are exceptions and some Republicans in Congress are trying to stick to their principles even at the expense of harsh criticism from within their own party. But there are some things a Republican administration and Republican-controlled Congress just would not do because of basic integrity and principles – not to mention the brutal crucifixion by the mainstream media, which would be relentless.
Let's start with the most obvious and blatant example. Namely, the Democrats consistently lied about ObamaCare in order to get the legislation passed. They lied to the American people, and they lied to fellow Democrats in the House to get them to vote for the unpopular Senate-passed bill.
Many Democrats who voted for the Senate version of the bill "took one for the team" and were defeated in their next election, and had to find another job. I wonder, where are they now?
The Obama Administration has delayed or changed parts of the president's signature law 27 times and counting. This is not implementation tweaking as some would argue. This is rewriting the law to try and make it more palatable for a public that does not want it. ObamaCare was the complete uprooting of a health care system that mostly worked in favor of one that has been a fiasco from the day it was implemented. It was like performing brain surgery on a patient that only needed a couple of aspirin. We wouldn’t have even needed to call anybody in the morning.
As ObamaCare continues to implode at the expense of the American people, the Democrats continue to make changes, make excuses, and spin the narrative in the media to convince people that they are being rained on instead of being ...... on. You fill in the blank.
When the Congressional Budget Office issued a report recently that said ObamaCare would be a disincentive for people to work, and cause some workers to see their hours cut or lose their jobs altogether, the Democrats (Jay Carney, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi et al) said that was a good thing!
It's a family value! It could free people from working in jobs they didn't like since they could now get plenty of ObamaCare subsidies to have health insurance! Call me naive, but what about food, shelter and clothing?
Are some people really that blind to the truth? I guess that's a yes!
Next: "There isn't a smidgen of corruption at the IRS." That’s what President Obama told Bill O'Reilly in a Super Bowl Sunday interview. What a super ... ! You fill in the blank. Just ask the Tea Party groups, or anyone who has been the target of an IRS audit. I have and it ain't fair or pretty.
This next example is beyond outrageous. The Obama Administration wants businesses that are cutting jobs because of ObamaCare to certify on their tax returns that it is not because of ObamaCare. So, if you cut jobs to stay in business you can't blame it on ObamaCare. If it is because of ObamaCare, don't say so or the IRS will come after you. If that's not intimidation using the IRS, then Santa Claus is real, and he's black.
Next, how about the "global warming" lie? It was recently revealed that some scientist had conspired to falsify data to show that the earth's climate was heating up at an unprecedented rate. Not! But the Democrats are still singing that narrative. Most recently, John Podesta, representing the Obama Administration, is working with the United Nations on an international commitment to halt the "alarming pace of climate change" - without congressional approval.
Next, the more Republicans scream for spending restraints (though not as drastic as us working class peasants would like to see), the more President Obama and the Democrats demand no constraints or conditions. The most recent example is the recently passed debt ceiling bill with no conditions. They got away with it because they knew if the Republicans had put up a fight, they could tell the mainstream media that the Republicans wanted ua to renege on our debt obligations as a nation and the MSM would have played the story note for note like singing lap dogs.
Next, Republican Senator Rand Paul is now suing President Obama for violating the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. The Courts will decide, but when in modern times has a Democrat in Congress been so compelled to sue a sitting Republican president for violating the Constitution? I can't think of one.
Lastly for now, the propaganda about unemployment and the economy. The administration fudged the unemployment calculations leading up to the November 2012 elections. If you look at the survey data used, which I and other sources did, one can see an unexplainably large increase in those who said they are working. The Bureau of Labor Statistics ignored the finding, just as they ignore the shrinking labor participation rate, both of which demonstrate the reported unemployment rate to be bogus.
The economy is supposed to be in a recovery, but we are still nearly two million jobs short of where we were before the recession started five years ago. It must be Bush's fault. And you can't expect this president to propose real pro-growth economic policies through lower taxes and less regulations, he would be accused of being a Republican!
Lies, deception, distractions, and dishonesty about the facts sum up the Democrats' tactics to continue to exploit the gullible. We have not seen this in recent decades to this extent. And if Republicans ever do these kind of things when they control Congress and the White House, I will be the first to throw them under the proverbial bus.
I speak for the working class, not the political class.
