Obama thinks you’re “selfish” if you don’t want to pay higher taxes

So I guess Obama and Biden, by Obama’s own definition, are selfish for donating to charity less than most Americans do….

Heck, my fixed-income parents give more to their church in one year than Biden, the millionaire, has given in the last 5 years total to ANYONE!

But now, Obama insists that if you don’t want to pay taxes at the rate of 40%-60% of your income, you are S-E-L-F-I-S-H!

From Jake Tapper, ABC, Obama’s own words:

“The reason that we want to do this, change our tax code, is not because I have anything against the rich,” Obama said in Sarasota, Florida, yesterday. “I love rich people! I want all of you to be rich. Go for it. That’s the America dream, that’s the American way, that’s terrific.

What a crock, Obama–with your stated tax plan, the American Dream ends at $250K, or $150K, or $120K (depending on the day and whether you or Biden are explaining the plan)….liar liar, pants on fire!  More:

“The point is, though, that — and it’s not just charity, it’s not just that I want to help the middle class and working people who are trying to get in the middle class — it’s that when we actually make sure that everybody’s got a shot – when young people can all go to college, when everybody’s got decent health care, when everybody’s got a little more money at the end of the month – then guess what? Everybody starts spending that money, they decide maybe I can afford a new car, maybe I can afford a computer for my child. They can buy the products and services that businesses are selling and everybody is better off. All boats rise. That’s what happened in the 1990s, that’s what we need to restore. And that’s what I’m gonna do as president of the United States of America.

“John McCain and Sarah Palin they call this socialistic,” Obama continued. “You know I don’t know when, when they decided they wanted to make a virtue out of selfishness.”

Never mind Obama’s lack of understanding of achieving wealth and the American Dream, but Obama is so out of touch or so desperate for power that he doesn’t realize that EVERYBODY WHO WANTS “IT”, already has a “shot”!

You want to go to college, young person?  There are numerous avenues with which to finance your schooling: saving, working, loans, grants, scholarhips, and various combinations of all of those things.  Obama won’t tell you that EVERYONE who WANTS (operative word) to go to college has the same shot at it in this country.  It may be more difficult for some and, for others, it may take a long time.  You can do it without Joe The Plumber, or anyone else seeking the American dream, being required to foot the bill!

Same with healthcare….while I do believe, there is some tweaking to do with American’s healthcare system, most of that tweaking includes costs and insurance practices…..but,with sheer planning, saving, and responsibility, most people can obtain healthcare without a Socialist Government-run entity . 

I heard on a radio show the other day a gentleman talking about how he secured an insurance policy that costs him roughly a few hundred dollars per month with a deductible  of $8000 per year…..That deductible sounds like a lot of money…but he has actually invested $10,000 that he saved the old fashioned way into something that realizes a decent return….This $10,000 is his medical nest egg that can be replenished with further savings and investment returns and will continue to grow over time since he is young.

That is one example that I know does not apply to everyone, but it exhibits the kind of thinking our parents and grandparents used in prudent spending and personal responsibility instead of relying on the government and “Free” handouts for our well-being…..the handout thing is exactly what Obama preaches.

Frankly, it is Obama who is selfish….he lies to the American people, uses his race to stir support, and uses those with lesser means to further his OWN agenda and power!

Look in the mirror, Obama….who is the most selfish one of all?

  1. ‘ Twas the night before elections
    And all through the town
    Tempers were flaring
    Emotions all up and down!

    I, in my bathrobe
    With a cat in my lap
    Had cut off the TV
    Tired of political crap.

    When all of a sudden
    There arose such a noise
    I peered out of my window
    Saw Obama and his boys

    They had come for my wallet
    They wanted my pay
    To give to the others
    Who had not worked a day!

    He snatched up my money
    And quick as a wink
    Jumped back on his bandwagon
    As I gagged from the stink

    He then rallied his henchmen
    Who were pulling his cart
    I could tell they were out
    To tear my country apart!

    On Fannie, on Freddie,
    On Biden and Ayers!
    On Acorn, On Pelosi’
    He screamed at the pairs!

    They took off for his cause
    And as he flew out of sight
    I heard him laugh at the nation
    Who wouldn’t stand up and fight!

    So I leave you to think
    On this one final note-
