Republicans Would Rather
Protect the Wealthy Than
First Responders, Obama Says

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/19/2013 12:21:17 PM

President Barack Obama says his top priority -- the "north star" of his second-term -- is to do "everything we can to grow the economy and create good, middle-class jobs." And that means taking more tax money from wealthy Americans, on top of the higher tax rates that Congress went along with a few months ago. Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, President Obama said Republicans have a choice: "Do you want to see a bunch of first responders lose their jobs because you want to protect some special interest tax loophole?"

Comments:
That will guarantee bipartisanship! s/o That is the last thing this miscreant wants. He´s beyond anything I have ever seen in my lifetime in this country. He behaves like a tinhorn dictator.

This morning´s showmanship included a frozen phalanx of uniformed first responders who were undoubtedly ordered to stand there and show no movements or reactions.

Shouldn´t local governments pay "first responders?" Isn´t that why my local taxes are so high?

Good point #2. I know where I live the police, fire, paramedics, etc are paid by our taxes. I went to a city council meeting last year where budget cuts were debated so we didn´t have to lay any first responders off.

After hearing the litany of vital services that will be cut, people will die from lack of health care, children starving, etc, I am amaze at all that can be funded with the mere $60-billion that would be cut.

This kind of talk should fall under the screaming "FIRE" in a crowded theater rule.

It is designed to cause panic among citizens already on edge.

Teachers and first responders ARE paid by our local taxes...NOT federal.

State taxes pay for the mentally ill, and other services.

First, the Sequester was this idiots idea. Second, if all these things are going to be so catastrophic, why doesn´t dear leader show some leadership and compromise rather than continuing in campaign mode. Obama is the worst leader we have ever had in the White House, bar none.

President Divisive in action. in my opinion, Obama cannot utter a word in public without lying. at this point, maybe he is so used to it that he no longer even knows he is lying. It is just second nature to him or he is delusional. In the last four years the GOp and various of the Presidents own chosen councils have offered a number of excellent proposals on many facets of our society. He rejected every one of them, because Daddy knows best. which is why we are all looking FORWARD into an abyss.

The first thing a nitwit mayor says when the taxpayers refuse to float a bond issue to redecorate his office or subsidize his golf club membership is to announce that if it doesn´t pass the city will have to fire half the fire and police departments and leave the potholes unfilled.

This last "speech" sounded like an over-the-top sendup skit on SNL of a 13 year-old spoiled brat appointed "president-for-a-day."

I´d like to humbly point out that the federal government doesn´t pay any first responders. Under President Obama they have however invested billions in alternative energy companies, AIG, GM, Chrysler, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, etc. After bailing them out, his administration then ensured that the executives who had led them to bankruptcy got millions in bonuses. And this is coming up now because the GOP wants to ensure that the Sequester that he dreamed up, lobbied for and signed actually results in reductions to the growth of government. I guess the military fat cats are complaining it will affect their bonuses.

Obama is a naked liar and a charlatan! He has no problem whatsoever thumbing his nose at this country and daring us to do something about it. This is the most arrogant self-centered Marxist president in this country´s history and half this country likes it! Therein lies the real problem with Obama.

Same old Democrat threat. They will cut everything the middleclass needs first. It usually only amounts to a small portion of the budget. But the threat is to get the taxpayers to give in to tax hikes.

Instead of firetrucks and policemen they could cut:
- funding for the arts;
- the out of control free cell phones program;
- over zealous funding for education that has only resulted in college tuition skyrocketing;
- money going to green energy programs that aren´t really green - which is most of them;
- Infrastructure projects which aren´t really needed but just pad the pockets of politicians with money that is laundered back to them
- you can add more examples

As posters above have plentifully pointed out, it´s our local property taxes that pay for first responders.

Now I´m hearing a clip of Obama´s claim that "parents will be forced to find child care" because "teachers" will be cut in the sequester, too.

What "teachers," one might reasonably ask, is Obama talking about ? Public school teachers too are paid for by local property taxes.

I suspect Obama ia talking about Head Start personnel.

Which reminds me ... when is any MSM reporter going to ask Obama about his own government´s study that corroborated the findings of an earlier study that found that Head Start is ineffective -- with all measurable benefits to participating children disappearing by grade 3?

I seem to remember Obama vowed to eliminate "ineffective" government programs. The reality is, he wants to not only keep wasting billion$ on Head Start, but to vastly expand it as "universal" "free" pre-school.

These days you know what Obama is going to say before he says it. It´s like he has already run out of gas before his second term gets underway. The so-called sequester was Obama´s idea, put out there in an attempt to cow the wimpy Republicans to accept Obama tax increases to stop big military cuts, but it appears that the Republicans are not going to play ball, and that the sequester threat has backfired on Obama.

Obama certainly does not like that and does not want to give the wimpy Republicans any room to explain to the nation where and why the sequester idea came about. Now its up to the Republicans to shove this political hot potato right back on Obama.

You know......Given a choice,I would protect the wealthy over the first responders.

Here´s why ....... If you have enough wealthy people,you can hire as many first responders as you want. If no one is paying taxes, you cant pay for those services.

Glenn Beck has previously expressed his desire to be less political and more like Walt Disney, and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Beck reveals he’s working on three movies to make the kind of entertainment he would want to see more of in theaters.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R.

Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
