The Debt Ceiling, House Republicans, the Democrats, and Compromise?

From: House Speaker John Boehner
June 27, 2011

“Democrats Are Focused on Spending, Taxing, & Regulating—Not Jobs:

1) The Democrats running Washington admit they’re not focused on creating jobs.

Instead, they want more job-crushing tax hikes, more failed ‘stimulus’ spending, and more regulations.

2) Democrats are also proposing an increase in the debt limit that raises taxes and fails to cut spending in a meaningful way. Speaker Boehner

said such a proposal won’t be accepted by the American people—and can’t pass the House.

3) Stanford economist John B. Taylor says ‘it would be very harmful to have a tax rate increase.’

4)The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says ‘higher marginal tax rates do reduce economic activity

to some extent by views of most economists.’

(Even the economic theory that the Democrats claim to believe in and support says taxes should NOT be raised when times are tough. It is ridiculous to speak of raising taxes on the rich. They already pay far more than they should. The problem is that Democrats have been using tax and spending policies to steal—even if allowed by law it is still stealing; nothing in the Constitution gives the government that authority—from one group of people and giving it to another group of people. It is simply an extra-Constitutional transfer of wealth from those considered to have too much—never mind that they worked for it—to those who select groups claim have too little—never mind that they have done nothing to earn it. In moral terms, that’s known as stealing!—my addition)

5) The CBO also says the current trajectory of government ‘spending growth would cause federal debt to grow to unsustainable levels’

and hurt job growth. And yet Democrats want more.

6) The Obama Administration is also taking heat for its National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) job-crushing effort to block Boeing from building planes

in South Carolina.

7) The White House admits increasing energy supplies will lower costs for families and small businesses, but it continues to block energy production

that would create new American jobs.

8) A Bloomberg News survey

found ‘a majority of Americans’ (including 40 percent of Democrats) ‘say job growth would best be revived with prescriptions favored by’ Republicans, including cutting spending and preventing tax hikes on American families and small businesses.”

There have been rumors this week that the Republican members in the House are going to cave over raising the debt ceil. Perhaps these rumors are actually wishful thinking on the part of Democrats and the mass media who support those Democrats. I don’t know.

However, given the above information that has come directly from Speaker Boehner’s office, I don’t know how they can cave without destroying the Republican Party. As it is, past Republican Presidents—President Reagan and George H. W. Bush—have compromised with the Democrats and each was stabbed in the back by the Democrats. As I said in yesterday’s post, George H.W. Bush’s compromise probably cost him his reelection. Why would the Republican Party be so foolish to trust the Democrats—particularly the present Democrat in the White House who lies about just about everything—this time. As the saying goes: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me!”

The Democrats LIE!!! Do NOT compromise with EVIL!!! The Democrats do NOT want to turn this nation around. They want a humanist, socialist regime with their elites in power and control!!! The only way to STOP the out of control spending is to STOP spending money that the nation does NOT have!!!


It’s time, it is past time to TAKE BACK THE NATION!!!
