Obama Accuses GOP Of Blocking Extension Of Unemployment Benefits


Do we remember President Obama talking about Pay As You Go last February 2010?

Well, that was then and this is now. Here he’s railing against the Republicans because they are asking Obama and the Democrats to do exactly what he asked them to do last February – PAY AS YOU GO!


The Republicans have decided that they want to encourage Obama to honor his word in regards to the Pay Go law.

Once Presumed Messiah Now a Battering Ram: Take off the Gloves, GOP!

By John Lillpop  Monday, July 19, 2010

The latest outrage from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has our dithering president demanding that Republicans restore unemployment benefits.

As reported in part, at CNBC.com:

President Barack Obama took aim at Republican lawmakers  Monday, accusing them of holding the public hostage to Washington politics by blocking extended unemployment benefits for millions of out of work Americans.

“It’s time to do what’s right, not for the next election, but for the middle class”, Obama said in a jawboning statement in the Rose Garden Monday.

This from the man whose tax policies are the single greatest impediment to middle class prosperity and overall economic growth, and the same man who promised to cut middle class taxes.

Republicans need to hold their ground on this issue and remind Obama that it was he who signed a nearly trillion dollar “stimulus” bill which was supposed to save or create 3.5 to-4 million jobs, and keep unemployment below 8 percent.

That was nearly 18 months ago.

Today, 15 million Americans are still out of work, unemployment is closer to 11% than 8% and the federal deficit has exploded out of control.

Before agreeing to spend even one more nickel on unemployment, the GOP must demand a full and complete accounting for the trillion dollars that Obama promised would fix the economy.

Any stimulus monies not yet wasted on liberal nonsense should be used to fund any extension of unemployment benefits.

Come on, conservatives! Take off those gloves and fight with all you got to prevent this Marxist community organizer and his radical colleagues in Congress from dumping even more debt on the backs of taxpayers.

Do it for the middle class, the poor, and God knows how many generations of unborn Americans!

(Speaking of the unborn, Obama has secretly spent $23 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars in Kenya to fund a “Yes” vote on a constitutional referendum scheduled for Aug. 4 that would increase access to abortions in Kenya and establish legal status for Islamic law tribunals. Would this money have been better spent on extending unemployment benefits for US citizens?)
