Breeder’s Cup

Posted by ginnypub on April 17, 2009

At last something for the bottom feeders of society-those that leach off tax payers and charitable good will-who never learned how to string a grammatically correct sentence together-who think using the word ‘fuck’ as a noun, adjective and verb is socially acceptable in polite society-that never take the time to get much of an education because they’re too busy breeding:

Here’s hoping the Soetoro Universal Health Care Rationing covers the cost!

NOT A SINGLE DIME

Posted by ginnypub on April 2, 2009

 From On High had an excellent take on this story-kind of a Clintonesque what “is” is.

WASHINGTON (AP) – One of President Barack Obama’s campaign pledges on taxes went up in puffs of smoke Wednesday.

The largest increase in tobacco taxes took effect despite Obama’s promise not to raise taxes of any kind on families earning under $250,000 or individuals under $200,000.

“I can make a firm pledge,” he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”

He repeatedly vowed “you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.”

Now in office, Obama, who stopped smoking but has admitted he slips now and then, signed a law raising the tobacco tax nearly 62 cents on a pack of cigarettes, to $1.01. Other tobacco products saw similarly steep increases.

The extra money will be used to finance a major expansion of health insurance for children.

His detailed campaign plan stated that his proposed improvement in health insurance and health technology “is more than covered” by raising taxes on the wealthy alone. It was not based on raising the tobacco tax.

Not one dime more than this:

Another source of revenue comes from auctioning rights to carbon emissions, raising $646 billion over 10 years. This is a regressive tax, meaning that it falls hardest on those at the lower end of the income scale. Despite Obama’s promise that those earning under $250,000 won’t pay another dime in taxes, carbon-intensive companies are going to pass along the extra tax to consumers.

If Barry and the rest of the stagflation supporters want to tax something to raise cash for children’s health care, how about a big, fat increase on PORN and LABOR INDUCED PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION?!

No way! Not in this lifetime! Let’s not get crazy, here. Children don’t need taxpayer-funded health care that bad! This is still America, after all!

Big Bang

Posted by ginnypub on March 18, 2009

When I first read the Politico story referring to Barry Soetoro’s “Big Bang”, I automatically assumed it was a reference to what he is doing to people who work, people who pay taxes, people who pay their mortgages, people who serve in the military,  people who contribute to charities and people who have seen their retirement depleted.

I was right:

At the White House Tuesday morning, Obama began the day with a sharp push-back against the idea that his uncommonly ambitious agenda on health care, energy and other initiatives is too much, too soon.

Not so fast there, Barry-

Barack Obama’s Big Bang Theory of Governance is starting to face its first big test among the new president’s fellow Democrats.

Another timing is everything moment:

March 18 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama may try to push through Congress a health-care overhaul, energy proposals and tax increases by using a partisan tactic that would thwart Republican efforts to block the measures.

The administration and congressional Democrats are debating whether to use a parliamentary procedure called reconciliation to advance some of the biggest items on the president’s agenda. The move would allow Democrats to approve plans to raise taxes by $1 trillion, create a cap-and-trade system to rein in greenhouse-gas emissions, and overhaul health care without a single Republican vote.

Maybe not. These measures enjoy bipartisan opposition.

Charlie Rangel, Class Act

Posted by ginnypub on March 9, 2009

“The American people have entrusted us with their hopes and aspirations for themselves, for their families, and for their future. We will honor that trust.”

– Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), November 8, 2006

pelosilies

Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY), Chairman, Ways and Means Committee, Vice Chairman for the Joint Committee on Taxation, U.S. House of Representatives, under the direction of Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

He puts the ASS in clASS:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denied a report on Tuesday that she had called on Ways and Means Chairman Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) to step aside.

“I see no reason why Mr. Rangel should step down,” Pelosi told reporters Tuesday. “I have supported his call for the ethics committee to look into it.”

The Ways and Means chairman has asked the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct to look into his use of four rent-stabilized apartments in a Harlem high-rise, his use of congressional stationery to solicit money for an educational center in New York that bears his name and, most recently, his failure to pay taxes or report rental income on a vacation home in the Dominican Republic.  September 16, 2008

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told NBC’s Meredith Vieira in an interview taped Monday that Rep. Charles Rangel should not step down as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.

Pelosi said she didn’t see “any reason” that Rangel should step down.

Tuesday, the House ethics committee said it’s now expanding its investigation of Rangel.

Pelosi said it’s up to the ethics committee to decide if Rangel should surrender his chairmanship.

“Until they make their decision, which I hope will be soon– I think that he should stay as chair of the committee,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi added, “Mr. Rangel, he loves our country. He loves this Congress. He wants to do nothing but bring credit to it. And he’ll be the first one to know what his course of action should be.”

The expanded ethics committee will investigate Rangel’s role in preserving a tax loophole that benefited a company whose executive had pledged $1 million to a center named after Rangel. December 10, 2008

House Resolution 143 to remove Rep. Rangel from his chairmanship. TABLED.

Baucus Balking

Posted by ginnypub on March 5, 2009

Jake Tapper and crew interviewed  Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., chair of the Senate Finance Committee, for the ABC News Shuffle Podcast.

Baucus said he was “concerned” about President Obama’s proposal to help pay for health care reform by reducing the amount in itemized deductions (mortgage interest, charitable donations, etc.) that those earning more than $250,000 a year can claim on their taxes.

“It’s an issue,” Baucus said, “but there are lots of different ways to solve this one, there’s always a solution…you just have to look hard enough and carefully enough and creatively enough to find a solution and if not that tax provision, there may be some other.”

To borrow from Shawn Hannity‘s “liberal translation treatment”, that’s what Baucus said, but here’s what he meant:

Cut itemized deductions on the rich, my ass. Look you little community organizing idiot…. NOW you’re in MY pockets.

What’s that? I think I hear Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Charlie Rangel, former HHS Secretary nominee Tom Daschle, former OMB nominee Nancy Killefer, Secretary of labor Hilda Solis and Trade Representative designate Ron Kirk laughing: Baucus pays taxes! Hee hee hee… stop it…haw haw…before you make me…snort snort… pee my pants…

URBAN HEALTH INITIATIVE FOR ALL!

Posted by ginnypub on March 3, 2009

What do you call health “care” involving Michelle (finally proud of her country) Soetoro, David (astroturfer) Axelrod, Valerie (slumlord) Jarrett, Dr. Eric (Rezko kickbacks) Whitaker, Tony (convicted felon slumlord) Rezko and Rod (impeached governor) Blagojevich?

The president of the American College of Emergency Physicians, Dr. Nick Jouriles, calls it “dangerously close to ‘patient dumping,’ a practice made illegal by the Emergency Medical Labor and Treatment Act, and reflected an effort to ‘cherry pick’ wealthy patients over poor.”

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ),  said its an effort to “cut coverage for the poor.”

I think most clear-thinking individuals would call it PATIENT DUMPING.

But what is the Soetoro/Axelrod/Jarrett/Whittaker/Rezko/Blagojevich “health care” plan called?

THE URBAN HEALTH INITIATIVE

Here’s how it works:

Suppose you’re a poor Southside Chicago resident that used to live in a government-subsidized housing unit owned by Valerie Jarrett or Tony Rezko, before the building was condemned, closed and demolished. Your 2-yr-old has eaten some lead-based paint chips that have fallen off the wall and into his crib. He is crying from stomach pains. You’re horrified. You scoop him up, run to a bus stop and get him to the Emergency Room at the University of Chicago. You try as best you can to comfort your child while checking in at the reception desk. “No, I don’t have insurance”, you tell the receptionist, as you fumble for a tissue to wipe up some of the vomit your son has just regurgitated on the floor.

You take your crying child to the waiting room to anxiously await his treatment. After an hour, you notice that several well-dressed individuals have been called back, even though they arrived after you and your son. After 3 hours, you keep putting your face close to your child’s mouth and nose because he has fallen into a deep sleep and you’re afraid he may die in your arms. After 4 hours, a shuttle bus arrives to take you and your son (free of charge) to a “less expensive” clinic….

How is the Chicago Urban Health Initiative relevant to most Americans?

Suppose you’ve signed up for SoetoroCare, outlined in the “stimulus bill”. Your child is very sick…..
