The future-generation-killer passes:
The Obama budget passed without a single GOP vote:
The US House just passed another historic spending bill despite the fact that the US debt is so large that America couldn't qualify to join the EU if it wanted to.
President Obama expects the deficit level to be 12% of GDP this year larger than Great Britain's record 10% deficit to GDP.
According to Heritage, Obama will quadruple the deficit this year.
But that's not all…
The Obama budget will nationalize healthcare and propose cap and trade limits on the economy.
The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved a $3.45 trillion budget blueprint largely in line with President Barack Obama's proposal after defeating a Republican alternative that slashed spending and taxes.
The Senate is working on its own budget for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1 and any differences will have to be worked out. The budget legislation is nonbinding but sets guidelines for spending and tax measures that will be considered later this year.
The House Democrats budget would also allow legislation to overhaul the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system to be considered in a speedier manner.
The proposed democratic Green Legislation will cost Americans $3 trillion and accomplish nothing.
Similarly, the Senate passed their version of the bill on a party line vote, 55-43.
The good news: every single Republican stood against this irrationally irresponsible spending plan that will bury generations of Americans under a mountain of debt.
The bad news: it passed anyway.
Elections have consequences. America handed the Democrats a blank check last November, and now they're cashing it, whether we like it or not.
Here's the bottom line. This is the Democrats' deal. It's theirs, they own it. Not a single Rep voted for it, and not even all of the Dems voted for it. The Dems and their media mouthpieces are desperately spinning this thing — like all the previous irresponsible spending bills from Obama — that it's still, amazingly, George W. Bush's fault for handing Obama a recession. But Americans aren't stupid. Bush may have begun the process, but Obama has multiplied Bush's debt several times over in a fraction of the time. Don't ever forget that, and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. We cannot allow the “Bush's fault” myth to get established. The fact is that Barack Obama has spent more taxpayer money in the past three months than every President from George Washington to George W. Bush…combined!!!
I suspect that spending is going to be the primary issue of the 2010 election, and the fact that the GOP was unanimous against this budget is a tremendously good thing. The GOP needs to be all over this, promising that if they get elected, they'll immediately roll back the majority of the Democrats' spending. If they can get that message out, we could see a potentially major shift in Congress. Of course, we still have to survive for the next 18 months first…and with the Democrats still in control, there's no telling how much havoc they will wreak on America.
There's my two cents.
