Obama Lies to America, "Bitch-Slaps" The GOP, Then Heads Back To Hawaii For More Vacay And GolfTopics:
The Lid's title nails exactly what Obama just did:
In the end President Obama proved this had nothing to do with the "middle-class" and everything to do with punishing the Republicans who had dared to oppose him. Late last night the Senate compromise fiscal cliff bill passed via a "bipartisan" 257-167 vote. Republicans voted "no" by an overwhelming margin 151-85, those 85 yeas combined with the 172 Democrats who voted for the bill enabled its passage.However, as The Lid goes on to point out, according to the CBO what Obama just did actually INCREASES the national debt by $4 trillion. And that is just one of several misstatements the Divider-in-Chief made.
As soon as the bill was passed the Divider-in-Chief stood before the Cameras with the SHMOTUS Joe Biden and took the opportunity to stick it to the GOP and lie to the American People:But we are continuing to chip away at this problem, step by step. Last year I signed into law $1.7 trillion in deficit reduction. Tonight's agreement further reduces the deficit by raising $620 billion in revenue from the wealthiest households in America. And there will be more deficit reduction as Congress decides what to do about the automatic spending cuts that we have now delayed for two months.
As for that "balanced approach" Obama has been yakking about, it's completely out the window. He got his tax hikes, but there were no spending cuts. In fact, we will spend even more as a result of the Obama-created fiscal cliff 'deal.' Obama's actions have proven that he isn't now nor has he ever really been willing to look at entitlement or spending reform. On anything other than wealth-redistribution via taxing the "rich" and ever-increasing government spending ... he's totally all talk and no walk.
And as for this new Hawaii vacay he's now off to after 'bitch slapping' the GOP by telling them "I won and from now on you will do it my way" ... and lying to the American people by saying the deal cut the deficit ... that will be costing tax payers more than another $3 million.
Meanwhile, don't think you can breath a sigh of relief over not having your taxes go up just because Obama got his "tax the rich" deal. Truth be known, 77% of Americans are going to end up paying more federal taxes in 2013.
