Trying to deliver the perception of power
Skewing the polls in order to make you think you are part of a minority who is filled with “hate” because you disagree with the current administration’s policies. Why not examine how well some of those policies have worked out for the american taxpayer.
Government has increased its fleet of cars to 449,000 vehicles. That is one car for every seven government employees.
“As it turns out, there’s a big reason GM experienced an increase in sales last month: “government purchases of GM vehicles rose a whopping 79% in June,” according to the National Legal and Policy Center’s Mark Modica.”
So, not only have we bailed out GM, the government is continuing the bailout by purchasing an enormous number of vehicles to stave off the bad news of the GM slump and using your taxes to do it. See how well that worked?
“Recovery summer” is another botched piece of work. Remember all those “shovel ready” jobs BO promised the American worker? Axelrod is denying it was ever said and wanted Chris Wallace to provide a tape proving there was anything said about it. Wallace obliged by showing the little weasel the tape where he extolled the virtues of the policy BO had put into place, using billions of taxpayer dollars (890 billion) for those jobs that never materialized. We did get a huge amount of signage along the interstates telling us our “stimulus dollars” were “at work”. “You can’t brand a recovery summer, and then not deliver a recovery.” With unemployment up again, 8.3%, this is what they come up with?
Since the Immaculation of Obama there is more corruption in DC at the employee level then we have seen in any other Presidency.
Rep. John Mica (R., Fla.), Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, revealed last week that the General Services Administration (GSA), the government agency at the center of a luxury spending scandal, had awarded $44 million in taxpayer-funded bonuses last year, far more than previously reported.
Though GSA staff constitute just one percent of the federal workforce, agency bonuses made up 10 percent of government bonuses paid out in 2011…….[snip]
The congressman also found widespread abuse of overtime pay, and cited one case where a GSA electrician receiving an $84,000 salary also earned $115,000 in overtime as well as a $4,600 bonus.
“There’s something wrong at GSA when you have to pay an employee $115,000 in overtime,” Mica said.
The greed and corruption in DC is at every level in government. You have become their ATM.
This really is a war that we have to win. It’s all on us.
