$1.1 Trillion Budget: Sham and Shame

Congress approved a $1.1 trillion budget to fund government operations through September 2014, including funding to further implement the failing and doomed to totally implode ACA Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare. Bet on one thing, that Congress camouflages ill-conceived laws with names that are exactly contrary to horrendous contents within. A rose by any other name is still a rose, but a rose bush with only thorns is any 1500 page act passed by Congress.

The $1.1 trillion budget is a sham and a shame on a gutless Congress that does not have the courage to follow its hollow words with the action of cutting waste, fraud, duplication, and ineffective laws that once instituted but outlived their usefulness, continue unabated into infinity, bleed billions but are too small to make a difference.

“Affordable” in ACA is and has always been a lie Congress shoved down the collective throats of America. Enemies of the people change names to protect the guilty. When programs or agendas are exposed as flagrant lies or half-truths, names are changed, as “Global Warming” transforms into “Climate Change,” while distortion of “Correct” morphs into “Politically Correct” which in itself is incorrect and an actual contradiction.

There is no such thing, and that to be politically correct is to be in a virtual lie and in denial. It is as though protecting feelings is more important than truth which is brutally unforgiving. Children used to say “Sticks and stones will hurt my bones, but names will never hurt me,” but my, how things have changed to the point that perpetrators of physical crimes of hurting someone with “sticks and stones” are “alleged,” while describing a person as “short” is offensive and an outright crime by a bigot.

Government and adulating Main Stream Liberal Media once again had their way with the people. Government is saved by government, enabling itself to continue in its profligate spending ways. Congress funded worthless government health insurance that provides neither health nor insurance, but designed to destroy jobs, transforming ordinary compliant citizens into chattels and dependent on the State, and by definition, become charter members of the evolving One World Government.

One World Government is “Government of the politicians, For the politicians, By the Politicians.” Illegal immigrants can help advance any cause, as Illegals are the only ones who can vote as many times as needed FOR the politicians. Government is no longer “Of the people, For the people, By the people,” but is transformed into “Of the politicians, For the politicians, By the politicians,” the people be damned. Obama coming into the Presidency just prior to his first term said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States.” Un-American transformation continues unabated to this day, enabled by Congress that is all words and no action except action contrary to the good of the US.

The Constitutional Republic exists in name only as Obama transformed into an art form his socialist or fascist policies as he systematically bent, folded, mutilated, stapled, and spindled the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Congress leaders Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi had full control for the first two years of the Obama monarchy, forcibly passing ObamaCare, but in the last two years there has been only token resistance by a GOP House majority that preferred to “Go along to get along;” Speaker Boehner’s words.

GOP House Speaker John Boehner, controller of the purse and spending, enables and continues the shredding process imposed by the Left Hand of extreme Leftist, President Barack Obama and his trusted Senate puppet Harry Reid who runs roughshod over the 99 Senators he captains. What is the compelling reason for the GOP to stay in control of the purse if they refuse to control the purse? A pox on both their houses.

Boehner and other Congressional GOP leaders lay in wait for winning the Senate in addition to maintaining House control in the midterm 2014 November elections, and then after they gain the Presidency in 2016, then they will repeal ObamaCare and all will be right with the world. RIGHT, but putting lipstick on a pig still makes it a pig.

Except that elections results may not end up as hoped. Should it come to be that the GOP gains control over all three branches of government, any idiot can then put through whatever is desired, but history tells the story that Republicans have always favored spending and war so why would 2014 and 2016 favorable outcomes be favorable? And where is a doable replacement for ACA ObamaCare except a 3-page plan by this retired CPA, [email protected], which politicians refuse to acknowledge or read?

In the early 1960s, a co-worker advised, “Don’t worry Albert, nothing will turn out alright,” as applicable over 50 years later as it was then. Some things never change except perhaps from bad to worse. Candidate Obama advocated for “Hope and change,” but the reality has come to be that Obama change is hopeless for America.

Obama and Boehner are advocating for immigration reform but there are two caveats; over at least a twenty-year period, government refused to enforce its own immigration laws. Secondly, another 1500 page boondoggle with accompaniment of 20,000 pages of rules, regulations, and circular gibberish designed by lawyers, for lawyers, bringing to mind the Shakespearian line, though not the context, “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” Can that be akin to the Jewish answer to the question as to whether chicken soup can cure a cold; “It can’t hurt.”
