Empty your pockets – President Obama knows best and is going on offense. Really?
Let’s list the newest ways in which Obama says he will go on offense. As we consider all these actions, let’s remember that each and every one of them would take money out of the pockets of working Americans to enrich the lives of those other than our own families, and not just those who really need our help. So – do work harder, so that you can pay for the lifestyles of others! Taxation without representation is alive and well.
Want to have children? Want to live here illegally while receiving Social Security, Medicare and other benefits? Want to have free Wi-Fi? Want to adopt a child? Want to have the Feds control college sports? You’ve come to the right place – America – where our all-knowing President dictates to us all, for he knows better, don’t you know.
Start saving your money: President Obama has already taken Executive action which forces us to provide six weeks of paid time off for every Federal worker who either adopts or gives birth to a child, or who is caring for ailing family members.
I assume the employee does not need to be the one who gave birth.
They will all have the right to six additional weeks of unpaid vacation. This is not at the discretion of the employer, or at the discretion of a private business who has decided that they can afford to pay for this. This comes at the expense of we taxpayers, paying for the life choices of those we don’t know, who just want more.
Empty your pockets: Obama has included in his budget proposal a bribe to the states, to the tune of $2.2 billion dollars of mandatory funding if they set up a Family Leave Program. This is reminiscent of the bribes given to those states which set up Obamacare Exchanges. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/DC-Decoder/2015/0115/Obama-takes-executive-action-on-paid-family-and-medical-leave-video
Empty your pockets: Our President will ask Congress to pass the Healthy Families Act, forcing companies to provide up to seven days a year of paid sick time to all, regardless of whether that might end up with the laying off of employees or the closing of the company. While this is a good thing to suggest perhaps, it should not be a mandate, and will as all other do-good projects do, result in loss of jobs or increases in prices. But Obama knows best.
President Obama has declared that he does not need the approval or votes of Congress to act on net neutrality, but that he is willing to work with any of those who agree with him. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/15/us-usa-internet-neutrality-exclusive-idUSKBN0KO2JO20150115
Our President’s Executive Amnesty prevents the deportation of 2-5 million illegals. It also allows them to receive Social Security and Medicare, as well as tax breaks for low income families. It makes it more difficult for our unemployed legal Americans to find jobs. As if that were not enough, Mexicans can now get their birth certificates right here in the good old USA, just to make it easier. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jan/15/obama-amnesty-to-qualify-2-million-illegal-immigra/#ixzz3OzqG2CCF
Empty your pockets. President Obama, becoming more and more defiant, dictatorial, revengeful and arrogant, is just getting started. We all will be paying for anything and everything this President says we will be funding. It looks as if we cannot count on the newly Republican Senate to do anything to stop him….
