Obama abusing his power on innocent Americans. The government shutdown isn’t going as Obama and Democrats planned. They expected the public sentiment to rail against Republicans. To make matters worse, the government exchange program for Obamacare is a complete disaster. Now President Obama is being petulant and vengeful. He’s closed The World War II Memorial to insult World War II veterans.
Now he’s withholding payments and benefits to family members of fallen soldiers in Afghanistan. This is absolutely disgraceful. California Congressman Duncan Hunter, a former Marine, explicitly stated the funding for the military and fallen soldiers was by Congress before the shutdown. The Fisher House, a non-profit organization, provided funding for these grief-stricken families.
Obama is trying to win political points by abusing his power and harming innocent victims. Veterans defended this country so he could enjoy the freedoms of being an American. Current service members should be held in the highest esteem since he is the Commander-in-Chief, a pitiful one, but one nonetheless.
The shutdown started because both Congress and Obama couldn’t agree on budget matters. But Obama is putting his thuggish Chicago tactics in full gear. When he took to the microphone as he did yesterday, he lied. He said he lowered the deficit by 50%. That is not true. He has raised the deficit by over a $1 trillion each of his first four years. This year the deficit is projected to be less than $1trillion only because of the sequester. The sequester was his proposal but he later denied it. But typical Obama, he’s taking credit for the reduction.
The country made a huge mistake electing Obama. He is showing he’s as spiteful as Richard Nixon and as incompetent as Jimmy Carter. Three bad presidents in a lifetime are enough. We Americans own the country, not the politicians in Washington. We need to get more involved. We need mature leaders, not vindictive charlatans.
