Obama, Dems Want Min. Wage Hike Expense, but Not Keystone XL Oil Money

Jerry McConnell · May 9, 2014

It figures; if it costs more taxpayer money with no significant revenues, the liberal Dems, led by the head Socialist, Barack Obama, it follows that the socialistic dupes who think that the ‘annointed’ one, who is really the ‘tainted’ one, can do no wrong, will be in favor of running the country into deeper and more serious debt. It makes one wonder is these pawns of communist propaganda ever consider the damage they do to our sinking nation.

Obama’s mantra of “Go ahead, keep spending, it’s only money” is the only thing the liberal Dems pay attention to anymore. He is like the Pied Piper leading the child-like minions into a country so heavily in debt it will soon collapse and be taken over by Obama’s favorite world group, the corrupt, devious and deadly United Nations combine.

A sizeable group of Obama’s less vocal followers point to the national cry of the more sensible citizens of the United States clamoring for approval of the national project of bringing more than 40 thousand jobs to this country with the approval of the Keystone XL oil producing project being held hostage by Obama, in keeping for when his true Islamic leaders take over the country for the aforementioned loss of integrity and moral principles United Nations.

Two main and meaningful projects where our government can create an unnecessary ‘give-away’ program to provide a short-lived hefty increase in the minimum wage causing a proven by experience loss of many more jobs and increases in product price increases while that same government refuses to allow an extremely beneficial program to bring more oil production into the country along with thousands of new jobs and much lower petroleum prices at the gas pumps and elsewhere.

How can one man and one group of people be so wrong about those two highly exposed programs to the point of total destruction of an entire nation of over 200 years duration in less than six total years in office? It reeks of extreme madness of a sizeable portion of our total citizenship.

One of our non-liberal mentally infected national legislators, Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) has even suggested that he would be willing to swap his allegiance for one in order to get the other; by supporting the less dangerous to the country minimum wage increase program for support from the liberals for the country-job enriching and revenue producing production of the Keystone XL pipeline bonanza being stone-walled by one man – Obama.

In a May 02, 2014 online article by CowboyByte.com, Rep. Cole’s proposition was detailed, essentially as stated above, bringing an immediate increase in thousands of much-needed and apparently mostly ignored by the Obama Administration and its fruitful benefits of increased U. S. oil production.

I am hesitant in my support for such a trade-off feeling that it shouldn’t have to be that way; but the inherent damages from the passage of the minimum wage package with its loss of jobs potential is a far cry in lesser difference than the huge and healthy increases in the oil program job increases as well as the huge amounts of revenues to our government from the Keystone XL deal.

The jobs and commercial items production lost as our non-partisan Congressional Budget Office predicts, will be a partially significant bump downwards to our already staggering economy and to the Obama dilemma of very questionable decisions for the country’s survival. On the other hand, the overall upwards boost of job increases along with production of all items from the Keystone XL project could not only replace but engulf the relevant job losses. And of course it is subject to a presidential veto.

As reported in the CowboyByte article mentioned above, Obama is still dragging his heels delaying the oil deal by stating that “The State Department recently announced his decision will be delayed and might not happen until after the midterm elections in November. The debate over the minimum wage has been "politicized,” and President Obama has been using it as a ‘secret weapon,’ (Rep.) Cole said.“

I personally can’t see any benefits or "secret weapon” in delaying a decision until AFTER the midterm elections. I would think that an approval of such a vastly beneficial decision for the country would give Obama and his political partners a huge boost in favorable news for the overall employment and added revenues to erase any objectionable feelings that may have increased prior to the elections.

In another article published online on May 02, 2014 titled “Keystone XL: State Dept. Stalling Because Of Complaints From Overseas?” by Teresa Mull of Daily Events, who states, “American support [has been] growing ever stronger over the past five and a half years, during which time the project has been under review (polls show Americans favor the project by a margin of nearly 3:1)…” that is a big 75 to 25 vote advantage that you would think would be grabbed by the liberals. But we know they are ‘sluggish’ at times.

So either Obama is under strict orders from his superiors (Soros, etc.) to hold the line on rejecting the Keystone XL oil deal or he is too dumb to recognize an advantage at the voting polls. I’m inclined to believe BOTH positions are relevant.
