If you don’t like Washington taking your money and wasting it on projects that make no sense and entitlements that don’t solve our fundamental problems, then you will probably be thrilled with President Obama’s plans for his second term. If you like big government taking away your rights and dictating our behavior, then the next 4 years are shaping up to be your cup of tea!
In his recent inaugural address, President Obama outlined his plans for his second term and they scare us quite frankly. They are not new to this President, they are simply being emphasized in a way that makes him appear emboldened beyond what the election results would indicate his “mandate” actually was.
A quick reader’s guide for Obama v 2.0 is as follows:
“Investments in clean and renewable energy” – More spending!
“Strengthening our education system for today’s economy” – Where is that money coming from?
“Closing loopholes in the tax code” – Raising taxes on businesses!
“Gun control” – Big government taking away individual rights!
“Immigration reform” – If Congress won’t act, he will, as he already has shown!
“Fix Medicare” – By only lowering cost of healthcare? We doubt it!
Clearly President Obama was serious when he said to the Russian Foreign Minister “I’ll have more flexibility in my second term.” Mr. President, we know that you think you have the ability to push this agenda, which will only hurt the United States more. But we are hoping that Congress and the American people see things differently!
