Remember, every time your taxes go up, it is to save someone else's job. Someone who is on the public tit, and must be prevented - at all costs - from feeling the pinch of the greatest recession in 70 years:
President Obama urged reluctant lawmakers Saturday to quickly approve nearly $50 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments, saying the money is needed to avoid "massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters" and to support the still-fragile economic recovery.
In a letter to congressional leaders, Obama defended last year's huge economic stimulus package, saying it helped break the economy's free fall, but argued that more spending is urgent and unavoidable. "We must take these emergency measures," he wrote in an appeal aimed primarily at members of his own party
So more and more monies are drained from the private sector (who do you thinks provides the $50 billion that Obama is begging for here?) in order to insulate government employees from the reality around them. Remember, to the president, their jobs, their livelihood, their very lives are more important than yours, and if you must be driven into bankruptcy via higher taxation to fund the pay increases, pension payouts, and generous benefits that federal employees are entitled to, well...consider that your "skin in the game". Now pay up, and don't complain, or you will be labeled selfish. Or, in a pinch, racist.
How much blood can Obama drain from a body that is already struggling to survive, until the point is reached where it simply collapses under its own weight, and perishes?
Looks like Professor Obama is interested in finding out. He experiments on us, and while we scream in pain, he feels nothing,and just continues on with his butchery, oblivious to the moans of despair and the looks of horror all around him...
