Obama's Broken Promises & Independence Day

As we celebrate Independence Day and continue to fight for our freedom, it is important to recognize that Socialist President Obama made many promises to the American people when he ran for President in 2008.   Obama's has broken all of those promises, one by one, much to the chagrin of his PEEP's.  So much so, that we can't believe one word this President says on the campaign trail.  It is pretty clear that Obama is no Thomas Jefferson, our brilliant third President, who wrote the Declaration of Independence.   Jefferson worked to give us freedom, while Obama works to take our freedoms away.

In any case, let's start with Immigration Reform broken promises.  Obama promised Latinos that he would offer major Immigration Reform legislation in his first year in office.   Neither Obama, nor the Socialists that controlled the Congress during Obama's first two years in office, did anything to secure our border, or deal with the 12 million illegal aliens in the United States. 

Next, Obama told his PEEP's that he would close Guantanamo Bay, the prison camp we own on Cuba, housing Terrorists from around the world.  Not only did Obama not close GITMO, Obama is spending millions of dollars to make life more comfortable for the Terrorists housed there.   Left wing radicals and the lame stream media are furious with Obama over this issue.   On this one, it is good that Obama broke his promise, since it makes no sense to close GITMO. 

Obama told us that ObamaCare would not raise taxes for anyone earning less than $250,000.   What a bunch of baloney.  After the Supreme Court ruling we know now that allot of the $500 Billion in taxes in ObamaCare will hit the Middle Class, including small businesses.  In fact, 4 million Middle Class Americans will be hit with $27 Billion in new taxes over 10 years.  Obama also told us that no one would lose their current health insurance as a result of ObamaCare and that the cost of health insurance premiums would go down.  Since ObamaCare was enacted, the average family has seen their health care costs go up by $2,400, a year with no end in sight.  

In addition, 30% of companies have already indicated that they will discontinue providing health care coverage once ObamaCare is fully in place by 2014.   As such, as many as 20 million Americans will see their company funded health insurance plans disappear.  When that happens employees will be on their own forced to buy medical insurance on the government exchanges resulting in higher cost for many Americans.   The Congressional Budget Office has also reported that ObamaCare is a job killer since this legislation will result in 800,000 to 1,000,000 people losing their jobs. 

Obama has always promised to protect Medicare when in fact, as part of ObamaCare, he cut Medicare benefits by $500 Billion and further eliminated the Medicare Advantage HMO Program impacting 22 million Senior Citizens.   This will force many Seniors to buy expensive Medigap policies to receive the same coverage they have now for minimal fees.  As a result, many doctors today will not take Medicare patients because the reimbursement levels are so low.  So much for protecting Medicare.   The reality is that Senior Citizens are paying to insure the 30 million uninsured as a result of the cuts in their Medicare Benefits. 

Obama promised us that he would maintain the most transparent Administration in American history.   This one is laughable. That was before the President claimed Executive Privilege related to Fast and Furious to keep pertinent incriminating documents away from Congress.  Fast and Furious was the crazy government scheme that resulted in guns being sold to the Drug Cartel in Mexico.  Those guns have been implicated in the death of two American border guards and hundreds of Mexicans.   As a result of Obama's stone walling, Attorney General Eric Holder has been held in Contempt of Congress, the first time in American history a cabinet officer has earned this distinction.   

Obama promised us that if he borrowed and spent a Trillion Dollars on his SwindleUS Plans and Socialist Schemes that unemployment would come down to 6%.    The reality is that unemployment has been at more than 8% for 40 straight months as a result of Obama's failed policies.   Unemployment was actually lower the day George W Bush left office than it is today.   And, the real unemployment rate is closer to 16% if all our counted, the unemployed, the underemployed working part time that want full time work and those that have just given up looking for work altogether.   There are 25 million people in our country in these categories.  The poverty rate is up.   50% of recent college graduates can't find jobs.  46 million Americans are now on Food Stamps, up from 20 million when Obama took office.  9 million Americans are now collecting Disability payments, the highest ever.

Obama promised to bring down our National Debt during his first term in office.   Instead, Obama  added $5 Trillion to our $16 Trillion National Debt, more than any other President in American history, with no end in sight.   Obama continues to borrow 40 cents for every dollar he spends as $4 Billion a day is added to our National Debt.   Obama has no meaningful plan to end deficit spending, or pay off our National Debt.   In fact, Obama's is pushing our country toward bankruptcy and a loss of our national sovereignty.

There is one promise that Obama kept.  Obama told us in 2007-08 that his energy plan would require energy prices to go up dramatically.   Obama has kept that promise.  The price of gas is double what it was when Obama took office.  And, as a result of Environmental Protection Agency Gestapo regulations, the cost of electricity is sky rocketing.   All of this is a job killer and is resulting in a lower standard of living for all Americans. 

Socialist President Obama has broken many promises that he made to the American people.   Why would anyone trust this President with another term in office, when Obama has proven over and again that he can't be trusted.   No, we have to make Obama a one term President and take back our country.  We are fighting for our freedom, like never before since the Revolutionary War.  In fact, we must sweep Socialists, at all levels of government, including President Obama, out of office in 2012 and 2014 to take back our country to roll back 100 years of Socialist creep.    We can no longer tolerate President Pinocchio Obama in office for another term.  When you hear Obama on the campaign trail always remember that Socialists will lie, cheat or steal to stay in office, feeding at the trough.  Obama's Broken Promises are proof of this universal truth.
