The President obviously watched a different set of mid-term elections than the rest of the country did. He said that every single one of his policies was on the ballot; the American people rejected them – and him – overwhelmingly.
It’s amazing that after such a repudiation of his policies and programs, his first instinct was to pick a fight in last night’s State of the Union Address. Three hundred billion dollars in new taxes? He knows there’s no chance of such a bill passing either house of Congress; he’s simply being confrontational. It began the day after his historic drubbing in November. He was quick to recognize the “2/3 of voters who stayed home.” The people who repudiated him at the ballot box are irrelevant to him.
Here at Tea Party Patriots, we’re fighting to give a voice to those people. We’re fighting to MAKE Barack Obama listen to average Americans like you and me who are trying desperately to hold onto the American dream.
But we need your help to do it, which is why I hope you’ll pitch in a generous gift of $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, or more today, and help us continue fighting back.
Ultimately, Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address was chock-full of the same old tired, redistributionist policies. He wants to tax the so-called “rich” to make free community college available to everyone? We saw how “free healthcare” worked out. The President is relying on turns of phrase to dupe low-information voters. The inheritance tax has become the trust fund loophole. Translation: let’s make it harder for families to pass on businesses or farms to their children, to conform to the President’s idea of what’s “fair.”
With each left-wing policy proposal, this president is waging war on our Constitutional values and the very foundation of our Republic.
That’s why, day after day, Tea Party Patriots is flooding the Capitol with grassroots phone calls demanding that Congress stand firm and reject his left-wing social engineering.
But to keep these critical efforts going, we’re relying on your continued support.
Please, pitch in whatever you can right now.
President Obama’s also calling for an increase in capital gains taxes. Economic studies have consistently shown that increasing capital gains taxes results in less revenue to the Treasury. It doesn’t matter to him; he said in 2008 he’d favor raising them – in the name of fairness – even if it increased the deficit.
In fact, President Obama has demanded higher taxes in every SOTU message. Raising taxes and punishing achievement is the last thing we need in a stagnant economy. Worse, expecting Republicans to pass tax-hike legislation is delusional.
By putting forward these policy proposals, President Obama has shown he has no interest in seeking common ground for the good of the country. True to form for his first six years, he still seeks to divide the country in his final two.
After hearing this speech, our resolve to stand against the Obama agenda and promote true reform of our nation’s broken government has never been stronger.
But to continue the fight, we need to know that you’re still with us.
Please, if you’re ready to join the grassroots fight against Barack Obama’s left-wing vision for our country, pitch in a generous gift to Tea Party Patriots right away.
