633.) The Genius Timothy Geithner has come out to support Preisdent Obama’s quest to raise taxes, “That’s the kind of balance you need,” said Geithner. “Why is that the case? Because if you don’t try to generate more revenues through tax reform, if you don’t ask, you know, the most fortunate Americans to bear a slightly larger burden of the privilege of being an American, then you have to — the only way to achieve fiscal sustainability is through unacceptably deep cuts in benefits for middle class seniors, or unacceptably deep cuts in national security.” So he is talking about raising revenues through tax reform, the fact of the mater is that you cannot raise enough revenue through tax reform to make a difference. The country is spending too much money, thanks to the big government spending princibles brought about by President Obama. You have to cut spending, it has come to that.
I would also like to point out that President Obama cannot take a high ground on the spending issue, and pass it off on former President Bush, and past congresses, because there never was a spending bill President Obama did not vote for. Spending is all he knows.
I do like how Mr. Geithner also tried the class warfare card. The systems they would have to cut, are not going to affect the middle class, they are going to affect the poor. Although I guess under President Obama those are the same thing now.
The Terrifying concept that I found in this, is not the typical Obamian “The rich are evil we must take their money, if you don’t want to you are a baby killer” rhetoric, we have heard it a thousand times. No what scares me, and should scare everyone else, is the that Mr. Geithner called being and American a Privilege. A privilege is something that Big Brother Obama can take away, if we misbehave. I was born in this country, being an American is not a privilege I have, it is a right. You cannot take away the fact that I am an American. But President Obama’s administration doesn’t want you to have rights to anything. He wants the government to be able to take anything from you, if you do not fallow his demands exactly.
I know there are many people who came to this country as imigrants, and they can be deported, so do they have to pay more to be an American?
So is being an American a Privilege or a Right?
