Republicans are to blame?

[May 14, 2014]  What is the magic the liberal media possesses that allows them to consistently remain so stealth with making people believe their facet of information-reporting is truth, when clearly upon close examination, or even superficially examined, it is not. Regarding Obamacare the liberal media continued hammering the same line as the President of the United States.

Consequently, the majority of people believed their health insurance would be cheaper, it is not. They were told they would be able to keep their insurance if they liked it, which is not true. They were told they would be able to keep the doctor they liked, not true. With the implementation finally started and sign-up completed, they are now finding out if they choose to remain uninsured they will have to pay a fine. The liberal media saddles up to the idea that government can stimulate the economy to “jump-start” it to keep it from recession through government “investments.” The mainstream media have spouted to the people the more the government spends it will lead to prosperity. We hear from the liberal media we can "stimulate" the economy with government money collected as tax from the people rather than letting people keep their earned money and stimulate the economy by spending it themselves.

We learned from the mainstream media and the liberal persuasion during the last time the Congress argued the debt ceiling debate that the democrats were touting a reduction in spending. When it was finally uncovered from the blanket of misspeak from the liberal media, we found there was no reduction of spending planned from the democrat budget after all. What was discovered was the budget lines were increased to unprecedented spending levels and some of those increased were decreased a certain percentage. That is what the democrat budget touted as a “reduction” in spending; it amounted to an actual increase in the spending, just not as much as the democrats wanted. Somehow the liberal media has found a formula for saying one thing while meaning another, and persuading a majority of people to accept it as truth.

The policies of the current Administration continually call for more and more spending. The soaring deficit is unprecedented in US history. The national debt under the current Administration has gone beyond all the preceding former Presidents combined. The President has continuously complained the republicans are obstructive and disingenuous it is impossible to work with them to enact any legislation for the benefit of the people. Yet, the current Senate Majority Leader has almost single-handedly shut down the US Senate from enacting anything the republican House of Representatives send forward. He simply uses the rules of the Senate to postpone any vote, or simply buries the bills so they are never brought forward. Yet the mainstream media continues to tout the tenants of the democrat politicians that it is the republicans who should be blamed.

In order for the Administration and the mainstream media to accept any facet of truth the republicans are the least bit cooperative they must agree to increase the debt ceiling without any comment every time it comes up so that higher amounts of money will be spent on more stuff. They would need to agree to raise taxes and let the progressives spend as quickly as they can as much as they can. Republicans need to step aside, capitulate to the progressives everything they are demanding and leave Obamacare completely alone to continue its implementation through until after the Mid-term election not bringing down the real hammer until after the President has left office at the end of 2016. Only then would the mainstream media even vaguely nod approval to any republican.

Never mind most polls taken throughout the implementation of Obamacare most Americans are not in favor of Obamacare; never mind many Americans are discovering they are being cut back to less than 30 hours a week propelling them into more than one part time job just to support themselves. Never mind most Americans have now discovered they are paying twice or three times the amount of money for the same or less insurance. Just to keep peace in America and keep the progressives happy the republicans are expected to give in to the progressives. One thing for sure, even if the republicans do everything the liberal group wants, the mainstream media will find some way to report they did not cooperate. And many people in America will believe them.

Finally, the republicans must be willing to put together a series of empty sacks to pass out to each grandchild of each American grandparent in the country because those children ultimately in the next generation will be left holding the bag.
