Buying Votes

People who vote for Democrats do so for the subsidies. So it's no surprise that, with the November elections looming, Democrats are looking to get some fresh money to the troops - to help them forget about the Obama recession.

President Obama, in an unusual Saturday night letter to Congressional leaders, asked them to “urge swift action” on legislation to send money to struggling states and localities he said was needed to help small businesses and avert “massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters.”
Public employees unions are the business partners of the Democrats. As usual, they're using our money to bribe their voters.
The letter made no mention of spending cuts to to offset that spending.
Well, ya, it's hard to buy votes when you're cutting budgets.
“We are at a critical juncture on our nation’s path to economic recovery,” Obama said, deeming it “essential that we… build momentum toward recovery, even as we establish a path to long-term fiscal discipline.”
But that really should have, more accurately, read like this:
“We are at a critical juncture on our nation’s path to the November elections,” Obama said, deeming it “essential that we… build momentum toward Democratic victory, even as we establish a path to long-term fiscal disaster.”
How about cutting some budgets, folks?
Obama said the new spending he’s calling for would be followed by “additional steps to establish a fiscally budget sustainable path over the medium- and long-term.
Why don't you put those spending cuts into effect first, eh? Remember the words of leftist icon Daniel Ellsberg:
I feel we are now in the hands of a conman. I feel conned by a clever Illinois politician...
The wacky left is even getting it.
