THE STANDOFF IS JUST A RUSE ON THE PART OF THE HOSTAGE
What President Obama said:
President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.
"I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven't resolved this issue. Because there may simply not be the money in the coffers to do it," Mr. Obama said in an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, according to excerpts released by CBS News....
What they're telling the rubes at Fox Nation:
"Obama Threatens..." See, it's a willful act -- Social Security and other benefits just spring from magical money trees (in fact, all government spending does, or at least the good stuff, like defense), while all the taxes you pay are poured down a rathole. There's no connection at all between good expenditures and taxation. That's why we could just massively cut taxes (and spending on bad stuff, like Planned Parenthood and Fannie and Freddie) without any negative impact whatsoever. Obama knows this -- he's just using the so-called "debt crisis" as an excuse to threaten Granny and G.I. Joe, simply because he hates them, and wants to scare all of us into giving him even more money for his nefarious plan to abolish capitalism in America and seize absolute control.
That's only a slightly embellished version of what's in the FN comments:
The President is not fooling anyone.....Everyone knows that seniors and vets are going to get paid. He is desperate for this debt-limit increase so he can carry on his agenda of expanding government. This is a desperation move on his part to get more money we don't have. He's become nothing more than a spoiled child crying to get his way. Don't give in Mr. Boehner!
Well the liar in chief is at it again. Scare the seniors and threaten the best people in America the veterans. Typical B S from the B ^ s'r in chief.
I don't see him offering to cut 10% of every useless government agency budget, I don't see him putting a lid on Fanny and Freddie while they suck us dry. NNNOOOOO he wants to hurt the seniors and the vets. SHAME on anyone who still supports this American Disgrace
