Here is part of Obama’s master plan
“The administration hopes to trim the deficit by scaling back Iraq war spending, raising taxes on the wealthiest and streamlining government.” (From AP)
I agree with Obama, raise taxes on the wealthiest,
How about we start by taking 80% from Obama’s rich friends,
George Soros: “In 1992, Soros earned one billion dollars in a one day by betting that the British pound would fall. Although Soros denies it, there are some that accuse him of causing the 1997 Asian economic crisis by his betting against the Thai baht.” (American Spectator)
Bill Clinton: “Former president Bill Clinton, who came to the White House with modest means and left deeply in debt, has collected nearly $40 million in speaking fees over the past six years, according to interviews and financial disclosure statements filed by his wife.” (Washington Post)
“Since it was established in 1997, the Clinton Foundation has raised more than $500 million…The list released yesterday includes some controversial figures and companies. Affiliates of the Korean conglomerate Hanwha — Hanwha L&C, Hanwha Engineering and Construction, and Hanwha Stores — donated about $1 million after Clinton traveled to Seoul in 2003 and appeared with Hanwha Group Chairman Kim Seung-youn. Kim has been charged and jailed in Korea on public corruption allegations.” (Washington Post)
Bill Ayers: Obama and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers worked together, no doubt closely, in the heat of political battle to help disburse more than $100 million to allies in the Chicago School system. (Digg)
ACORN: Your tax dollars at work: Bank of America forks over $2 million to ACORN (Michelle Malkn)
On Feb. 18, I warned about the ACORN civil disobedience mob working in ideological tandem with Barack Obama to bully Washington into passing a massive new foreclosure prevention/mortgage entitlement scheme. On Feb. 20, I noted that ACORN garnered nationwide media attention for breaking and entering into a foreclosed home in Baltimore at 315 South Ellwood Ave. ACORN vows to use “any means necessary” to stop foreclosures. Baltimore police have taken fingerprints at the break-in site and the current owner, William Lane, says he will sue ACORN. The home was sold in June 2008 for $192,000. This morning, ACORN official Louis Beverly will face a burglary charge. Look for the Left to turn him into a martyr. (Michelle Malkin)
Craig Meister at the Examiner.com points me to this typical CNN sob story clip of a bus driver named Minta Garcia who is demanding that President Obama halt all foreclosures. She’s underwater on an $800,000 home. (Michelle Malkin)
Abortion industry: “Senate roll call vote: Taxpayer funding of overseas abortions reinstated: Here’s the Senate roll call vote on the so-called Mexico City Policy. Congrats! Your tax dollars will fund overseas abortions once more.” (Michelle Malkin)
Planned Parenthood obscene profits: “Not a joke: The billion-dollar Planned Parenthood empire By Michelle Malkin • April 1, 2008 12:40 PM: Planned Parenthood’s annual budget has surpassed $1 billion. Why the hell do they need our tax dollars? From the American Life League:
“It is absolutely incredible,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, “but the annual report just released by Planned Parenthood Federation of America shows that $114 million of the government funds received by Planned Parenthood were not needed and only increased the abortion giant’s assets.”
Sedlak was referring to the 2006 — 2007 PPFA annual report released late last week. The report shows that PPFA had a total income of $1.02 billion. Of that total, $258.7 million came from donations; $366.9 million came from fees charged customers at its clinics; and a whopping $336.7 million came from the American taxpayer.
The report also showed that PPFA recorded a profit of $114.8 million and increased its total assets to $1.12 billion. Instead, the report finds Planned Parenthood doing more abortions than ever before. The report shows an increase in the number of provided abortions from 264,943 in 2005 to 289,650 in 2006. Planned Parenthood reveals it has doubled “excess of revenue over expenses” funds from $55.7 million in 2005 to $112 million in 2006.” (Michelle Malkin)
I say why not take all of their money to help out a great cause…the government!
If Bill Ayers would have gotten his way we wouldn’t have any rich people to tax!
“Mr. Ayers in 1970 was said to have summed up the Weatherman philosophy as: ‘Kill all the rich people'”. (New York Times)
And now if Obama keeps it up we will have no rich people left in America,
They’ll either move or end up in the poor house with the rest of us.
And the perfect metaphor for the Obama stock market plunge
Obama-capulco Cliff Dive! Look out below…
9,000 earmarks in the $410 billion omnibus spending bill: Gang tattoo removal, Maine lobster, La Raza & more!
You want earmarks? There are lots and lots and lots of earmarks in the $410 billion omnibus spending bill coming down the road. Not that any of the people who are going to vote for it will actually read it, of course. If they did, they couldn’t look into the camera and sanctimoniously declare that, uh, you know, “There are no earmarks.”
