DLA For Sunday 013011

The truth according to the VOTERS.

Hey folks,

So my Son, Elijah, just born 11:50am Monday, my attention was of course elsewhere. Tuesday comes and so does the State of The Union, according to Obama. Following that, was TWO rebuttals. The first, reported, was the Tea Party response by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minnesota. Many News Outlets tried to pass this off as the actual GOP response. It wasn't. The ACTUAL GOP response came from REP. PAUL RYAN, R-Wis. Now these two DO have one thing in common. It was the TRUTH about the State of the Union, per the People.

Now I posted all three. No time to really talk about any of them at the time. So as I do from time to time, I posted them for YOU to read and decide for yourselves. But if you read Obama's you read nothing new. He just rehashed ANY Campaign speech. He just repeated his Liberal Talking points and attempted to bring back some of the old Magic that got him elected.

Paul Ryan said this.

Our debt is the product of acts by many presidents and many Congresses over many years. No one person or party is responsible for it.

There is no doubt the President came into office facing a severe fiscal and economic situation.

Unfortunately, instead of restoring the fundamentals of economic growth, he engaged in a stimulus spending spree that not only failed to deliver on its promise to create jobs, but also plunged us even deeper into debt.

The facts are clear: Since taking office, President Obama has signed into law spending increases of nearly 25% for domestic government agencies – an 84% increase when you include the failed stimulus.

All of this new government spending was sold as “investment.” Yet after two years, the unemployment rate remains above 9% and government has added over $3 trillion to our debt.

Then the President and his party made matters even worse, by creating a new open-ended health care entitlement.

What we already know about the President’s health care law is this: Costs are going up, premiums are rising, and millions of people will lose the coverage they currently have. Job creation is being stifled by all of its taxes, penalties, mandates and fees.

Businesses and unions from around the country are asking the Obama Administration for waivers from the mandates. Washington should not be in the business of picking winners and losers. The President mentioned the need for regulatory reform to ease the burden on American businesses. We agree – and we think his health care law would be a great place to start.

Last week, House Republicans voted for a full repeal of this law, as we pledged to do, and we will work to replace it with fiscally responsible, patient-centered reforms that actually reduce costs and expand coverage.

Health care spending is driving the explosive growth of our debt. And the President’s law is accelerating our country toward bankruptcy.

Our debt is out of control. What was a fiscal challenge is now a fiscal crisis.

We cannot deny it; instead we must, as Americans, confront it responsibly.

And that is exactly what Republicans pledge to do.
All this is TRUE. Nothing Paul Ryan said is false. These are the facts. What Paul was REALLY saying here, is WE HEARD YOU. WE AGREE WITH YOU. WE WILL FIX ALL THIS. He went on to say this.

We believe that the government has an important role to create the conditions that promote entrepreneurship, upward mobility, and individual responsibility.

We believe, as our founders did, that “the pursuit of happiness” depends upon individual liberty; and individual liberty requires limited government.

Limited government also means effective government. When government takes on too many tasks, it usually doesn’t do any of them very well. It’s no coincidence that trust in government is at an all-time low now that the size of government is at an all-time high.
SO how is this going to translate into a benefit for all Americans?

We believe a renewed commitment to limited government will unshackle our economy and create millions of new jobs and opportunities for all people, of every background, to succeed and prosper. Under this approach, the spirit of initiative – not political clout – determines who succeeds.
To sum it all up, Obama = Bigger Government, more control, more out of control spending. The People want = Less Government, less control, and LESS Spending. Basically, get out of the way and let the American People save America? Let the Free Market WORK. Those who work hard, get ahead. Those who do not, will have to find a way to change themselves. Let Big Business BE Big Business. Let them grow, produce more, hire more people. Let those who have the American Dream, SUCCEED without hindrances by the Government. Without being punished for all their hard work.

Congratulations Rep. Paul Ryan, for not only having the ability to recognize the TRUTH, hear what the People say, but for also having the courage to SAY it. You are the winner of the Display of Logic Award for this Week, Sunday 013011. Thank you for letting us all know that you heard us, and that you are willing to work FOR the People. Keep up the good work.
Peter
