It must be kicking in because my Internet company just added $2 increase in federal/state taxes amount over what I paid last month. Rates on many things go up, while people are still out of work, or have reduced hours, and most can’t make enough to match the rising costs. And this is before the Obamacare system fully kicks in.
President Obama has shutdown executive branch services, but not the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base. To show how the commander-in-chief takes care of the troops that he expects to face dangers in his continued involvement in Middle East problems, the grocery store [PX] on that base is closed due to government shutdown. Service members and their families must shop off post and pay more for their groceries.
This president punishes others when he does not get his way, as congressional members, specifically in the Senate continue to support his outrageous spending, incompetent foreign policies, and continue a law that should never have passed – Obamacare. The federal government does not listen to the People because they are not capable of controlling their own lives. More people would have health insurance, paid for by employers if there wasn’t any income tax system, replaced by FairTax [ending the reign of the IRS] or even a flat tax [not more than 10% and no progressive tax]. Obamacare is going to force to let a percentage of their employees go and may even put businesses [small businesses] out of business, as well as increase the cost of health care and health care insurance. How does this help?
The people did not want [majority] Obamacare anyway. Senator Ted Cruz wants to make changes to the bill, but it is best to ditch it and never allow it to return.
The economy would be better off if: (1) Income tax system is replaced, (2) Obamacare legislation repealed, and (3) a bill/amendment passed that ensures a balanced budget occurs fiscally and reduces spending, especially overseas.
Fast track to the 1990s when Prohias retired because of his health and died at age 77 in February 1998. The strip continued with writer Duck Edwing and artist Bob Clarke, and in magazine #356 (April 1997), Peter Kuper took over as writer and artist. The characters, including the Grey Spy added in 1962 (female) became a Sunday comic strip released in 2002 and in 2004, the characters were used in television commercials for Mountain Dew soft drink. Milton Bradley produced a Spy vs. Spy board game and video games were produced in three formats, one being Nintendo. In 2005 video games, Red and Blue Spies appeared and between 2006 and 2009 a series was published entitled Spy vs. Spy Jr. depicting spies as children.
Of all the scandals floating around Washington, congressional committees busily trying to sort it out, the two most serious are: Benghazi incident and the IRS scandal. The first has to do with the death of Americans serving our country and the other is a well-established and most hated/feared agency in the federal government.
The Benghazi tragedy occurred before election day 2012. So it makes me wonder why after all this time why nothing is being done about it. It has been clearly established that the order to “Stand Down” was given more than once, after repeated requests for assistance as three brave men fought off overwhelming odds in terms of numbers and firepower for SEVEN HOURS!
– ObamaCare [Affordable Care Act] – a program that was originally initiated by Hillary Clinton and became obsession with BH Obama in his first term was supposed to be not one dime to the deficit or even more fantastic only cost the “rich” in terms of taxation, et cetera is now a train wreck according to Senator Harry Reid. Typical of the democratic-socialist party, Reid, Obama and associates see problems as the behemoth social program is costing far more than they told the American people, and with hidden aspects that will hurt everyone – blames it on the Republicans who did not vote for the law. Obama promised to protect the Middle Class from over taxation, but he lied about that also as we can see real world results.
If a consensus or referendum vote were taken across America, it would not have passed. Now Reid and company are demanding more funding so the unconstitutional legislation can continue.
– Obama’s new budget proposes changes to Social Security and Medicare as part of the alleged entitlement cuts.
All my life, since 16 years old I have put money into Social Security and Medicare. Social Security is NOT an entitlement and neither is Medicare [not to be confused with Medicaid]. People put money from their wages and salaries into both systems expecting to get something when they retire. It is a system where individuals put money into the “retirement” system and have NO control over it, not even allowed to leave as part of one’s estate if they die before they get a chance to collect; because the government is the beneficiary. We cannot retire when we want or need to [like not being able to get a job] or get penalized before a certain age if we collect social security and still have to work [if work can be found] because government and the Federal Reserve has caused inflation.
No White House tours, border security reduced, but Obama seems to have the money to provide travel for family members of Sandy Hook School in Newton, Connecticut on AIR FORCE ONE from Hartford, Connecticut airport. This reinforces his anti-Second Amendment agenda in conjunction with Senate members who have dishonored their oaths of office just be submitting bills that are unconstitutional. The idea is to lobby the Senate to use emotion and make senators feel guilty if they do not vote for what Obama wants. The real solution is ignored. The reason our government cannot solve issues is because they either look in the wrong direction or act as if there isn’t any problem. In this case, they are looking in the wrong direction. It is a no-brainer that people with mental problems should not purchase firearms. The solution is NOT disarming lawful citizens and ignoring the Second Amendment.
