If indeed the road to Hell is paved with good intentions, President Obama and his cohorts in the Democratic Party must be feeling the heat on their backsides after the House voted to pass the Cut, Cap and Balance (CCB) plan.

The trustees of the Medicare system recently reported that the program will go broke in the year 2024—five years sooner than was projected just last year.

President Obama is now openly proposing tax increases on at least two important fronts as part of his “solution” to the growing debt crisis.
The president’s favorite approach is to talk about the “wealthiest Americans.” In his speech on April 13, he proclaimed that he will do away with the “Bush tax cuts” for the rich as soon as he has the opportunity. Just a week later, April 21, he … Read the Rest of this Post

There is a struggle now being waged in Washington, the outcome of which will determine whether the nation’s economy will grow or continue to falter.
The main combatants are President Barack Obama and a thoughtful member of Congress from the nation’s heartland, Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI.

As the nation digests Barack Obama’s plan to ride a tax hike to re-election, one phrase from yesterday’s budget speech confirms what this author has long stated: the president is fundamentally an anti-American Messianic figure who believes he was sent to save our nation from itself and its Founders. Speaking a line that was written in advance, approved by multiple layers of handlers and advisers, and spoken with relish, the president … Read the Rest of this Post
