became a test of whether the American people could still rally together when the cause was right
Quite the contrary. The cause was wrong for America. And Obama has proven, with his accomplices Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, that the opinions of the majority of the American people – who oppose bankrupting the country and imposing new federal mandates on our health care – count for nothing. In order to impose their Progressive agenda on the country, they resorted to bribery, threats, lies and accounting gimmicks while trampling on the Constitution in the process.
The former director of the Congressional Budget Office, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, wrote in yesterday’s New York Times that there will be additional deficits of $562 billion in the first 10 years, after stripping away all of the gimmicks and budgetary games. Even without this hit, the federal deficit is already expected to exceed $700 billion every year over the next decade, doubling our national debt to more than $20 trillion. Now add at least another half trillion dollars as a result of Obamacare.
This is what the change foisted on the American people will really look like – bankruptcy.
Then there are all of the new government mandates. For the first time in American history, we are being told that we must buy something or be punished, enforced by the Internal Revenue Service, just because we are alive. And what we are forced to buy will be designed by the same federal government that runs or controls the near bankrupt Medicare and Medicaid programs, the Post Office and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Obama has started us down the path of bankrupting the country and socializing one-sixth of the American economy, and yet he is still not satisfied:
This day is not the end of this journey
He is right about that. The end of his journey is the end of the constitutional republic of limited federal powers and sound fiscal policies that our Founding Fathers established.
