No wonder Obama is so eager to be friends with the Islamist dictator Mohamed Morsi. They are both masters of the bait and switch tactic. Morsi duped the willfully gullible into thinking he was something other than Egypt’s Ruhollah Khomeini. Obama pulled this:
The top-ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee accused President Obama of pulling a “bait and switch” this week with the administration’s proposed deal to avert the so-called “fiscal cliff.”
“What [Obama] proposed this week was a classic bait and switch on the American people — a tax increase double the size of what he campaigned on, billions of dollars in new stimulus [i.e., patronage] spending and an unlimited, unchecked authority to borrow from the Chinese,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said in Saturday’s weekly GOP address.
Obama has made it obvious to anyone paying attention that he fully intends to go over the cliff — unless of course Republicans accede to his every demand, no matter how detrimental to the economy.
If Congress fails to act within the next 30 days, a bevy of tax increases and severe spending cuts are set to go into effect, potentially unleashing a devastating blow to the precarious U.S. economy.
“If we don’t act by the end of the year, 28 million more families and individuals will be forced to pay the Alternative Minimum Tax, 21 times as many farmers and ranchers will be hit with the death tax, and the average middle-class family would see their taxes go up by at least $2,000,” Hatch said.
Obviously we are going to have to pay the piper sooner or later. You can’t let a Marxist punk flush $trillions that we don’t have down the toilet, reelect him, and then expect there not to be economic agony.
The objective is to make sure Republicans get blamed for the pain, despite being the only ones to attempt to avoid it. Given that the Obama Regime and the “mainstream” media are in effect the same entity, this should be child’s play.
