The Left Won’t Allow Barack Obama to Take Down Liberalism
It’s not just the AP fact check on Obama’s nonsense. They have a companion story, and they even identify the traitor who wrote it. The guy’s name is Andrew Taylor. “It’s not just millionaires who’d pay more under President Barack Obama’s latest plan to combat the deficit. Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government … fees.” Yep, they are called fees in this, not taxes.
“Airline passengers would see their federal security fees double from $5 to $10 for a nonstop round-trip flight and triple to $15 by 2017, raising $25 billion over the coming decade. Federal workers would face an additional 1.2 percentage point deduction from their paychecks to contribute $21 billion more for their pensions over the same period. Military retirees would pay a $200 fee upon turning 65 to have the government pay their out-of-pocket Medicare expenses. They’d also pay more for non-generic prescription drugs. And it’ll cost corporate jet owners a new $100 fee for each flight.” Now, this one is interesting to me, as you might imagine. Because it says here that this will raise a billion dollars. Corporate jet owners, $100 fee would raise a billion dollars. That would mean there would have to be ten million corporate jet flights.
By the way, it excludes little puddle jumpers like single engine aircraft, recreational flying, excludes all that, so I don’t know how you get to that level of flights, that number of flights, but — (interruption) well, yeah, I guess it might be okay to go back to Las Vegas, where the unemployment right is at 15.9%, by the way. So this piece goes on to question every aspect of this so-called jobs bill, which, again, isn’t a jobs bill. It cannot and will not create jobs. Obama has never introduced a real jobs bill. Stimulus 1 was not a jobs bill. This is not a jobs bill. You know, the person who has the biggest opinion of Obama anymore is Obama, and that’s the problem. I think the guy is blinded by his own self-delusion.
