    Obama tripled the deficit his first year in office. The deficit has been more than a trillion dollars every year since.

    The Obama deficit this year is expected to reach $1.29 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)

    So the last person on earth who should be lecturing America on “living within our means” is Barack Obama. But since when has that stopped him?
    From the White House website:

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate Release September 19, 2011

    Fact Sheet: Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future – The President’s Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction


    Overview
    The health of our economy depends on what we do right now to create the conditions where businesses can hire and middle-class families can feel a basic measure of economic security. In the long run, our prosperity also depends on our ability to pay down the massive debt the federal government has accumulated over the past decade. Today, the President sent to the Joint Committee his plan to jumpstart economic growth and job creation now – and to lay the foundation for it continue for years to come.

    The President’s Plan for Economic Growth and Deficit Reduction lives up to a simple idea: as a Nation, we can live within our means while still making the investments we need to prosper – from a jobs bill that is needed right now to long-term investments in education, innovation, and infrastructure.

    He got our Credit Downgraded for the first time in history, he held our Seniors hostage and threatened them with destitution by withholding their Social Security checks unless Congress gave him unlimited refills on his spending crack pipe and he's going to lecture us?

    Fuck you, Barry.

    New government fees pepper Obama deficit plan

    WASHINGTON — It's not just millionaires who'd pay more under President Barack Obama's latest plan to combat the deficit.

    Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more than $130 billion in government revenues raised through new or increased fees.

    Airline passengers would see their federal security fees double from $5 to $10 for a nonstop round-trip flight and triple to $15 by 2017, raising $25 billion over the coming decade. Federal workers would face an additional 1.2 percentage point deduction from their paychecks to contribute $21 billion more for their pensions over the same period. Military retirees would pay a $200 fee upon turning 65 to have the government pay their out-of-pocket Medicare expenses. They'd also pay more for non-generic prescription drugs.

    And it'll cost corporate jet owners a new $100 fee for each flight.

    The fees aren't taxes. They're charged to people who use government services or receive benefits such as taxpayer-subsidized health care, and they typically defray the government's cost of providing a service. The fee on corporate jets and other private passenger planes, for example, would raise about $1 billion a year to help finance the cost of air traffic control. Recreational flyers won't have to pay.

    Many of Obama's proposals are retreads from earlier budget proposals, including those submitted by his predecessors. Most have been rejected year after year. Some ideas, like requiring wealthier veterans to pay more for their health care, stir up opposition from powerful interest groups. Others, like the bigger security fee for flyers, seem too close to a ticket tax increase.

    Administration budget documents describe the fees as savings.

    But unlike Obama's tax proposals, the new fees aren't necessarily dead on arrival with Republicans. A group led by Vice President Joe Biden had tentatively agreed to increase the airline security fee before talks between the White House and Congress collapsed in June. The Biden-led group was also weighing an increase in pension contributions by federal workers, an idea that has riled organized labor and other Democratic-friendly interest groups.

    "Why (would) the administration ... propose a Social Security payroll tax holiday in its jobs bill, but simultaneously suggest a tax increase for middle-class federal workers?" asked Joseph Beaudoin, president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association.

    I'm glad people are seeing this now finally...

    I suppose people were still dunk on the hope and change bullshit during the first stimulus.

    You know - that time when he had all his buddies in congress but did nothing but spend.....

    Then he comes back and has the fucking audacity to blame republicans for his failure..

    He had everything he needed to allegedly fix what he said he was going to fix - instead he bailed out the unions.

    I'm dumbfounded that anyone even supports his snake ass anymore..

    One would have to be a serious Marxist or an idiot to support Obama at this point..

    During his election I continually said a vote for Obama would be a vote for the death of the Bill of Rights and a vote for the death of capitalism..

    No one listened to me - they were drunk on hope and change.

    Where is all the hope and change now???

    In the unions pockets, that's where.

    Why don't you and 50,000,000 of your buddies go ahead and admit you just don't like his color! He could tell John Bainor or Mitch McConnel that they had a nice smile and they would immediately go and shoot theirselves in the face.(Bill Maher)

    You fucking serious or are you just joking??

    Economics is colorblind ...

    I'm a capitalist hes a socialist...

    I oppose and HAVE opposed every fucking collectivist I have identified as a collectivist and I will continue to do so...

    Race has nothing to do with socialism and capitalism.

    It's just a good excuse for progressive socialism failure.

    I love the ignorance on the left....
