A President of the United States does not hold a gun to the heads of senior citizens in order to attempt to advance a political point. He does not threaten their welfare. He does not try to panic them by telling them that their Social Security checks may not be coming. He does not blame the other party for their intransigence, when he himself won’t budge off his demand that taxes be raised as part of an agreement to raise the debt ceiling.
Such behavior is grossly despicable. It is spiteful, cold, calculated, intensely selfish, self-serving, and far, far beneath the standard for presidential behavior. It is in fact indecent behavior for a person of any stripe at all. The fact that it is typical of Democrat behavior does not make it acceptable. It is also typical of evil tyrants who use their subjects for whatever purposes suit them. It was standard behevior for Mao Tse Tung, Adolf Hitler, Vladimir Lenin, Joe Stalin, Che Guevera, Fidel Castro, and Pol Pot; a gallery of mass murderers if there ever was one.
It is the 3rd of 50 reasons that barack is not my president.
He’s not bluffing. He will hold back SS checks
It gets worse. A lot worse. barack means it. He is an arrogant moron and has no idea how to cede the point when he has lost the debate. When August 2 rolls around, either the Republicans will have (stupidly) surrendered, or the government, according to tax-cheating Treasury Secretary, will have exhausted its $14.3 trillion credit card limit.
At that time, the government will not go into default. It will simply be out of borrowing authority. It will receive $210 billion in tax receipts, while having $360 billion in obligations. Social Security checks need not be held back.
But they will, and I know they will.
Deliberately inflicting fiscal pain is a signature Democrat move
Have you ever noticed how often that city governments, when forced to cut back, will first threaten to lay off cops, firemen, trashmen, and teachers? When their demands to turn the cash spigot are not met, they actually do it. Meanwhile, the employees in city hall are still on the job, mayors and councilmen still go on golfing trips on the city dime, and life otherwise goes merrily on.
So why do they lay off cops, firemen, trashmen, and teachers? Purely to punish the citizens for demanding fiscal responsibility.
