President Obama says the GOP Plan is: “If you get sick, you’re on your own. If you can’t afford college, you’re on your own. If you don’t like that some corporation is polluting your air or the air that your child breathes, then you’re on your own.”
Mr. President, you insist that if Government doesn’t provide, we’re on our own. But Sir, Government has no money. To keep people from being “on their own,” you had to take money from others.
1. Well, almost half our nation pays no Federal Income taxes, so the first wave came from middle and upper income people—you know, the ones who create and sustain almost all the jobs.
2. But the money you seized from today’s job-creators wasn’t nearly enough, so you also took trillions from our children. That’s right. You charged endless promises on our kids’ credit cards.
3. But that still wasn’t enough money, so you printed more. Lots more! Lowering the value of our cash, this drove up prices on gas and food. Bottom line: The inflation resulting from your reckless printing has ALL OF US paying for your promises—big time.
So Mr. President, let me more accurately restate your warning about Republicans:
“My fellow Americans, if those Republicans won’t let me seize more money from job creators, you’re on your own! If they won’t let me charge trillions of dollars on your kids’ credit cards, you’re on your own! If they won’t let me print more money so that what you have is worth far less, you’re on your own!”
Mr. President, I think I speak for most Americans when I say, “We’ve looked at your price tag, and we’ve decided to be on our own. We’ll take care of each other—charitably, like in the days before our safety net became a hammock for Green Energy executives. And Mr. President, we’ll do it without crushing job creation, putting our children hopelessly in debt to China, or printing so much money that what we have barely buys food or fills our tanks.”
Mr. President, you’ve sheltered us like a father. Well, this November, we’ll make you proud, Dad. We’ll grow up, leave home, and like those first American pioneers, we’ll strike out “on our own.”
