    NRA-ILA :: Bi-Partisan Congressional Majority Moves<br>to Restore Second Amendment in National Parks

    Friday, May 22, 2009

    On Wednesday, NRA-backed legislation to restore the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens in national parks and wildlife refuges passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 279-147. Today, the measure was signed into law (by President Obama) and, as specified in the legislation, will take effect in nine months, on February 22, 2010. This was a major repudiation of the gun control community's anti self-defense agenda.

    It turns out, however, that it's President Obama who actually made their rally possible. In May 2009, he signed a measure allowing Americans to carry guns in national parks into law.

    Economic Stimulus - The New York Times

    By November, a consensus had developed among analysts across a wide range of views that the stimulus package, as messy as it is, was working. But as unemployment rose above 10 percent, administration officials acknowledged that they had underestimated the depth of the recession, and pressure began to rise for a second round of stimulus -- to be called a jobs bill, to avoid the stigma that Republicans had sought to attach to stimulus.

    The bill would give employers an exemption from payroll taxes through the end of 2010 on workers they hire who have been unemployed for at least 60 days. It also extends the federal highway construction program, shifts $20 billion to road and bridge building and takes other steps to bolster public improvement projects.

    Obama Eyes $300 Billion Tax Cut - WSJ.com

    President-elect Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are crafting a plan to offer about $300 billion of tax cuts to individuals and businesses, a move aimed at attracting Republican support for an economic-stimulus package and prodding companies to create jobs.

    CBO Scores Confirms Deficit Neutrality of Health Reform Bill | Press Releases | Committee on Education and Labor

    Washington, D.C. -- The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released estimates this evening confirming for the first time that H.R. 3200, America’s Affordable Health Choices Act, is deficit neutral over the 10-year budget window – and even produces a $6 billion surplus. CBO estimated more than $550 billion in gross Medicare and Medicaid savings. More importantly, the bill includes a comprehensive array of delivery reforms to set the stage for lowering the future growth in health care costs.

    10 banks pay back TARP billions - Crain's New York Business

    The banks repaying TARP are some of the industry's largest, including J.P.Morgan Chase & Co., which took $25 billion in TARP funds; American Express Co. for $3.39 billion; Bank of New York Mellon for $3 billion; and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley with $10 billion each.

    BB&T Corp. and U.S. Bancorp. also said they were repaying their TARP money.

    In addition to the money they're returning, the banks have paid Treasury more than $2 billion in dividends that were mandated under the TARP program. Taxpayers also will receive billions in exchange for the warrants, once Treasury and the banks can agree on how to price them.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Let's see.

    Obama expanded gun rights.

    Obama cut taxes.

    Obama insured millions more Americans under a Deficit Neutral Health Care program.

    Obama brought in billions in interest from the bank bailouts.

    Obama has been steadily restoring the economy.

    Uh, so why are the Tea Baggers protesting again?

    Or maybe he signed it into law because he agreed with it?

    Because his history suggests Obama is really a very big advocate of gun rights, right?

    Obama is from Chicago. Most murders here are committed with guns are owned by felons or bought illegally or owned illegally by children who are gang members. Obama has worked to keep illegal guns off the street. That is his voting record.

    The fucking White wing has twisted that so even when he expands gun rights for honest Americans, they lie. They just lie. They are turds. They lie and lie about everything. Shitstains, pond scum. They are traitors to America.
