Fortunately, thanks to several speeches given by the President this week, we now know that Benghazi, the Department of Justice’s targeting of journalists, the IRS’s targeting of certain groups seeking tax exempt status, and NSA’s interception (and storage) of certain information about our daily communications, are all phony scandals.
With that now behind us, the President has decided to focus on middle class Americans who are not doing as well economically as the President, or anyone else, for that matter, believes they should. So, the President believes we (i.e., the government) need to spend money so that the middle class has more money in their pockets.
So, I am compelled to ask, should that be the focus, why is the President determined to take money out of the pockets of the middle class?
Thanks to Obamacare, the middle class, who previously had employer paid health insurance, albeit not the current “government approved” health insurance, and who had a full time job, will now have no health insurance (unless they pay for it themselves with a small government subsidy), and a part time job. According to the Congressional Budget Office, some 7 million Americans will lose their employer insurance because of Obamacare. And, because of Obamacare, the 30 hour work week is becoming so common place that even the labor unions who supported Obamacare are demanding the law be changed.
Then, of course, we have the Keystone pipeline, or rather, the lack thereof. It is claimed that the construction of the pipeline would create some 40,000 mostly middle class jobs.
And what about the coal industry that the administration is intent upon destroying? What happens to the miners, and the haulers, whether by truck, barge or railroad, who will soon be unemployed?
I’m sorry to say this, Mr. President, but I think the scandals are real, and your sudden interest in the middle class is phony.
