President Barack Obama, less than two months after signing tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans into law, is proposing a budget to congress that attacks programs that assist the working poor, help the needy heat their homes, expand access to graduate-level education and undermine that type of community-based organizations that gave the president his start in Chicago. Obama’s new budget puts forward a plan to achieve $1.1 trillion in deficit reductions over the next decade, according to an administration official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity in advance of the formal release of the budget. Those reductions — averaging just over $100 billion each year — are achieved mainly by squeezing social programs.
I have no idea why the right wing hate the guy so much. He does just about everything they want. And the only thing they didn’t like (health care) is still a boon for business. No, the only reason they can hate him is because he doesn’t call himself a Republican. But he is. A Republican. I hope you people who voted for him are happy. As I said before the election, it won’t matter who you vote for. And it didn’t. All politicians are slaves of business because business owns them. Voters? Come on, open your eyes. YOU DON’T MATTER to your elected officials. Stop acting like you do.
