John Boehner the Bully

John Boehner the BullyBoehner the Bully

The President wants it, the American people want it, but “Mr. No” doesn’t want to offend his wealthy friends.

John Boehner, whose title is “Speaker of the House of Representatives”, though no one knows what he really does, vehemently said “no” Sunday to any form of increased federal revenue.

Let me correct your errant thinking Mr. Speaker.  We do not work to pay your salary and allow you to receive “perks” from your friends.  YOU work for US, or at least you should be.

Your inaction will eventually cause grief to those actually affected by automatic federal spending cuts.  You won’t feel any pain, but many of us will.

The Employment Development Department is reporting unemployed workers collecting federal extensions of unemployment benefits in California and across the nation could face at least a 10.7% cut in those weekly benefit amounts starting with weeks of unemployment beginning March 31, 2013.

That means that a check of 300 dollars a week will be reduced to approximately 270 dollars.

Could you live off that paltry sum?  I don’t think so.

Republicans claim the effects of the Sequester are exaggerated.  Well, they don’t really care either way, do they?  They don’t have to worry, and wait and see if they cause additional financial difficulty for working class America.

Boehner and the boys act as if they’re trying to lower their approval rating even farther.  There’s not much more room at the bottom.

Everyone is quoted as saying they are “disgusted” with continual bickering and posturing in Washington.  That’s everyone but Congress who is quite happy with the status quo.  Doing nothing means more time off for them to spend your tax dollars.

As Ben Stein, a staunch conservative, said on CBS Sunday Morning, “get back to work”.

    Who is this jerk, Turnage, who presumes to speak for me? I’m an American and I sure as hell don’t agree with Obama spending this country into bakruptcy. Obama wanted this sequester back in 2011 and threatened to veto any alternative bill sent him. This was just a ploy to get him through the 2012 election. Now he decides he doesn’t want the sequester and wants to add yet more taxes to the already overtaxed taxpayers who keep the economy alive and blame Republicans in the process. Just remember Obama’s background. He had no experience in governing. The only job he ever worked at before campaigning for President was that of “community organizer” — a polite term for rabble rouser. Rabble rousers always have to be victims and have to have adversaries, hence his continual need to make excuses and blame others for his failures. He is the worst president this country has ever had and the worst thing that has ever happened to this country.

    Really!!!
    So the wealthy want those receiving social security to have some of their benefits taken away. What about the billions(close to 1 trillion) that congress borrowed but never paid back and we are suppose to give even more???
    Medicare is not free. You have to pay for it. I pay for it plus another 300 a month for the extra 20% of doctor bills it does not pay.
    Take money children.. If you have a hungry child you go and rob someone who looks like they have money. You could be the next victim if you drive a nice car, live in a nice house.
    Cut defense?? Now more than ever do we need defense. We have the whole middle east angry at us and want to change the the way we live.. or kill us and go to paradise.. automatic ticket to 72 virgins.

    $270 per week is a paltry sum… so is $300! You’re not meant to “live off” either amount. Unemployment benefits are designed to be a stop-gap and encourage you to find another job, not be a substitute for a paycheck. It’s this kind of silly argument that distracts from the real issue. There is not enough incremental revenue out there to cover the hole – and we have already raised taxes and will likely close tax loopholes and limit deductions further. Much larger cuts are necessary and, yes, will be painful for all. But, there are no other long-term options. What the writer really needs to worry about is fixing the major fiscal issues we face over the next several decades. Otherwise, forget marginal unemployment benefit levels and learn to embrace systemic 10%+ unemployment and an uncompetitive, lackluster US economy that further decimates the revenue base.

    This mess is Obama’s, he knew what the contract / agreement was but his EGO thought that he could change the rules at the last minute. His party controls the Senate and even they would not come through for him. After all, it’s only 2.4% for one year.

    Someone needs to stop this idiocy of federal government overspending.

    Obama cannot sit on the sidelines and then blame the Republicans. Continuous insults by Obama just means he will never get any help from the Republicans.

          I’m a staunch conservative and I prefer a taco joint on the corner.

          Does your snide put-down mean you’re a liberal clinging to dead, unworkable redistribution ideas and can’t find a way to justify such a position? Ask Mr. Turnage what happened to the UK by the time the 1970s arrived after the Labor Party turned Britain into an entitlement state. The word “decay” comes to mind…

          Speaking of elitists…I believe Mitt Romney is spending time with his grandchildren while President Obama is golfing with multi-zillionaire Tiger Woods. Did Obama sleep in a Motel Six that recent vacation?

          Only a liberal could blind themselves to the desperate hunger for celebrity and unquestioning obediance their heroes of the proletariat so often exhibit in such a feckless way.

    AS A FORMER JOURNALIST, LET ME PICK APART HIS RANT AGAINST REPUBLICANS.

    HE RANTS THAT REPUBLICANS REFUSE TO CONTINUE RECKLESS SPENDING SAYING: “The President wants it, the American people want it, but “Mr. No” doesn’t want to offend his wealthy friends.” MR. TURNAGE, CAN YOU NAME ONE OF THESE WEALTHY “FRIENDS? AND, BY THE WAY, MORE THAN HALF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT FEDERAL SPENDING REDUCED.

    OF COURSE NOT TURNAGE CAN’T NAME A SINGLE WEALTHY PERSON THAT THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE IS FRONTING FOR. IT’S A PHONY STRAW MAN ARGUMENT DESIGNED TO HOODWINK UNINFORMED CITIZENS EAGER FOR SELF-DELUSION. CONSERVATIVES HAVE PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES WHICH ARE ECONOMIC GROWTH FOR ALL SECTORS ENCOURAGED BY SENSIBLE GOVERNMENT SPENDING AND LOW GOVERNMENT DEBT. IF GIVING GOVERNMENT MONEY AWAY MADE NATIONS GREAT THEN EGYPT AND THE FORMER SOVIET UNION WOULD BE THRIVING.

    HERE’S A REAL BELLY LAUGH WHERE TURNAGE AIMS A WEIRD SLAM AT BOEHNER BASED UPON TURNAGE’S OWN IGNORANCE OF BASIC AMERICAN GOVERNMENTAL WORKINGS: “John Boehner, whose title is “Speaker of the House of Representatives”, though no one knows what he really does, vehemently said “no” Sunday to any form of increased federal revenue.

    JOHN BOEHNER IS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. GET IT? WERE YOU IN THE DARK WHEN NANCY PELOSI WAS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE. WAS HER JOB A MYSTERY TO YOU THEN? THE JOB DESCRIPTION AND RESPONSIBILITIES HAVEN’T CHANGED. IT SOUNDS LIKE A SCHOOLBOY PUTDOWN THAT ONLY REFLECTS BADLY ON THE INSULTER. BOEHNER IS PRESENTLY REPRESENTING HIS CONSTITUENTS WHO DEMAND THE REPUBLICANS REIN IN FEDERAL SPENDING.

    TURNAGE THEN PLAYS THE THREADBARE OLD HOWL ABOUT HOW MEAN REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING: “Your inaction will eventually cause grief to those actually affected by automatic federal spending cuts. You won’t feel any pain, but many of us will.”

    PERHAPS TURNAGE DOESN’T KNOW THAT A FRIGHTFUL AMOUNT OF GOVERNMENT SPENDING FOR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AND ENTITLEMENTS OF ALL TYPES IS BEING BORROWED FROM FOREIGN NATIONS AND THE TREASURY ITSELF AND THAT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TIME AND AGAIN. PERHAPS TURNAGE SHOULD WRITE A COLUMN SHRIEKING ABOUT THE NEED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS. OF COURSE THIS MIGHT REQUIRE A CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S HANDLING OF THE ECONOMY OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS.

    BEFORE TURNAGE CALLS FOR THE GREAT GIFT OF UNFETTERED UNEMPLOYMENT SPENDING HE SHOULD PERHAPS REALIZE THAT IF THE UNEMPLOYED EVER DO GET BACK TO WORK, THE SWEAT OF THEIR BROW AND THE SWEAT OF THEIR DESCENDANTS WILL GO TOWARD PAYING OFF THE INTEREST ON THE DEBT FOR MONEY THEY WERE GIVEN.

    AS FOR TURNAGE’S ADMONITION THAT THE REPUBLICANS GET BACK TO WORK, HE MIGHT CONSIDER APPLYING THIS CHASTISEMENT TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AS WELL. THE PRESIDENT WENT TO SILLY EXTREMES TRYING TO SCARE AMERICA WITH THE SEQUESTER CONCEPT HE AND HIS TEAM ORIGINATED. HE FAILED. THE SEQUESTER IS COMING AND ITS EFFECTS WILL LIKELY BE MINIMAL.

    THIS MGHT EXPLAIN WHY TURNAGE HAS PICKED UP THIS DEAD BALL AND IS TRYING TO RUN WITH IT.

    NOW OBAMA REFUSES TO ACCEPT THE OFFERE OF FLEXIBILITY TO AVOID THE PROBLEMS TURNAGE IS WHIMPERING ABOUT.

    STANDARD LEFT-WING HOOEY. POINTLESS, UNGROUNDED IN FACT AND DEVOID OF SENSE.

Truth is, wherever he came from, he does not have American interest at heart, and “low information” voters, who used to sit on the sidelines where they should, are energized by “the free for all” with taxpayer money. It now can happen! Wow! We are lost as a first tier country, and I blame the uninformed populace. I suppose the Obama supporters think they will fare better under a Chinese dictatorship.

    I think all of Congress and the Senate should not be able to retire with their current pay and full benefits. I think they should retire as the rest of America retires on social security and whatever investments or savings they have. They should not be able to keep their full health care or salary paid by our tax dollars. They feel that Medicare is enough for us. It should be enough for them as well. Why are we paying for these fabulous perks for them when most of us will never be able to retire because we can’t afford to? Let’s cut these perks and see how much money we can save. Enough is enough. I think we Americans need to vote on cutting their full salary and benefits when they are no longer in office.

    The mess going on is due to a president trying to control all three branches of gov’t. We don’t need any more taxes, what we need is fiscal responsibility. This out of control budget spending needs a major haircut. It is not the government’s job to be an employer, nannie etc. The private sector, churches etc traditionally back when were the ones responsible for those items.

    Obama is going to reject any and all proposals if it doesn’t have some more taxes in it, he has already stated this several times now. He feels that it is his mission to completely turn this nation into a complete socialist nation. In case you haven’t noticed, we all but there now. His mission is to make this a nation just like Cuba. Take a look over there. Or read the papers and see what is being proposed in some of the European Countries, 75% taxes, 60% to 66% taxes. These are the things a socialist nation does. Socialism doesn’t work as we are seeing now with PIGS in dire straits and still haven’t fixed their problems yet to get their economies back going.

    Cut the fat, do away with the redundancy, do away with the waste.

    If you’re thinking along the lines of party, stop. It’s a tactic to divide and conquer America. Back on topic… the way they want to increase revenue is by increasing taxes. As a working American, I’ve seen the impact it has on the small business I work for and me personally. We have 6 employees, with the new taxes it’s like were paying for an extra employee’s salary but with the same productivity levels as before. That means it costs more to run a business with the same amount of productivity as before. Small businesses are hit the hardest when they increase or introduce new taxes. To the average American, the disability or unemployment checks are a constant. Yeah it sucks to live off small wages, but when you don’t earn it, can you really complain? Society is paying for you to survive even if you are a crackhead. I like the idea of safety nets, but they should be safety nets and not a long term thing.

The USA has huge deficits and cannot continue to spend, spend, spend. Whatever happened to compromising and working out public policy that is good for the American people? Both parties have sold out so much that they cannot offend large ‘corporate donors’ who have put them in office. I think we should stop allowing corporations to fund elections. The corporations now own the politicians and all to the detriment of the American people. I believe that most laws are written by lobbyists who are linked to corporate funding which ironically has fine print that benefits the lobbyist’s corporate sponsors. America and its government has been up for sale for some time.
