It is hard to believe what I am reading in the news. I have read reports that the White House has grounded warships in anticipation of budget cuts; that Immigration and Customs Enforcement have released several hundred criminals because they might face budget cuts; that Republicans who favor the budget cuts are fomenting the abuse of women and domestic violence because of services that will be cut; that the Pentagon will lose thousands of employees–the government knows that gets to people understand the Constitution; that programs for school children are being cut–we knew that would hit the presses sooner than later. What is the occupant of the Oval Office doing about it? He wants a $1.2 TRILLION tax hike.
Investor’s Business Daily has analyzed the occupant’s budget proposal to end sequestration. IBD reports that his “balanced” plan is calling tax increases “spending reductions.” Here are some examples cited by IBD : His plan to “strengthen” unemployment insurance is labeled as a cut, but it’s really a $50 billion tax hike; The $35 billion from the federal worker retirement programs involves boosting worker contributions; Most of the $35 billion in Medicare savings comes from charging wealthy seniors more; The $140 billion in “reduced payments to drug companies” are in fact rebates Obama wants drug makers to pay Uncle Sam for selling drugs to poor seniors; and there are many more.
IBD says, “Viewed correctly, it turns out that more than $300 billion – about a third – of [the president's] proposed “spending cuts” are actually revenue increases. Forgive me for repeating: $85,000,000,000 is slated to be cut from the government budget. Now that is a budget with pre-programmed increases from the previous budget. In other words, there will be no cuts in current spending, only cuts in the budget request for future spending. On top of that, the government debt is 16,618,562,350,747 and rising about a million dollars every 20 seconds. Total unfunded liabilities are 8 times that amount. Do you really think that by cutting $85 billion out of the budget will cause the sky to fall? Can you afford more tax increases?
This continues because We the People allow it. A government that refuses to enforce the law is no government at all. Unjust laws are no law at all. How can you tell? Read your Bible and your history. All Constitutional law is based on God’s law. As Peter and the Apostles said in Acts 5:29, “We ought to obey God rather than men.” There should be accountability here. What the occupant is doing is illegal and unconstitutional by not enforcing laws, turning criminals loose on the streets and endangering our national security–only to try to force tax increases down our throats. He should be brought up on charges for breaking the law, just like what would happen to any of us if we did that. Also, the deceit and lies must stop.
