Sen. Rubio: Obama’s tax obsession, incompetency

Increased taxes, class warfare, mismanagement and anti-growth policies harm economy

“Every aspect of life in America today is worse than it was when [Barack Obama] took over. Unemployment higher. Interest rates. Everything is worse. The only thing that has gone down in America over the last two years is the value of your home. This president has mismanaged this economy. He’s been incompetent in his management of this economy. And now he’s offering these tax increases that are going to kill any chances of growing our economy and getting people back to work.”

– Florida Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio on Sean Hannity

Adding credibility to Rubio’s comments, is the intended-to-intimidate interview scheduled to air this evening on CBS News.  Barack Obama threatens he can’t guarantee that retirees will receive their August 3 Social Security checks, if the tax increases he wants are not authorized by Congress  — and  the debt-ceiling raised. Looking ahead to his political future, he has said he refuses “to sign a 30-day or a 60-day or a 90-day extension.”

Obama told news anchor Scott Pelley “this is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veteran’s checks; these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans would “do the responsible thing” to avoid default. “The president has presented us with three choices: smoke and mirrors, tax hikes, or default. Republicans choose none of the above. I had hoped to do good, but I refuse to do harm. So Republicans will choose a path that actually reflects the will of the people, which is to do the responsible thing and ensure that the government doesn’t default on its obligations,” McConnell said.

Meaning what, Mitch?

    “President Obama Says He ‘Cannot Guarantee’ Social Security Checks”

    Like a sick, desperate, cornered CRIMINAL, “YOU LIE!” obozo aims his gun at his hostages – the elderly, the poor, the sick – and says “If you don’t give me every TAX INCREASE I want, they’ll get it.”

    This guy is so mentally impaired and deranged from his self-documented* massive drug use he is a danger to everyone in this country.

    *Of course, everyone knows that American terrorist and murderer bill ayers wrote the obozo books.

      You’re Right On with your comments.

      And watch for Marco Rubio in the future. With a few years of seasoning, he will be on the GOP presidential ticket.

        TPP& V, First of all – BHO wouldn’t make a good pimple on Marco’s buttocks. Second – everything BHO does is deliberate. Third – Rubio is without question in the top tier of the senate and is ready to be President today. Marco Rubio makes the status quo look like a bunch of neophytes. The best news is we have a new bunch of real conservatives that give us realistic hope for our nation’s survival.

      Obama is not mentally impaired. He knows EXACTLY what he is doing to our economy and our country, and he’s using Cloward and Piven’s playbook to do it. He wants to destroy the U.S. as we know it, and build a Marxist state on top of the ruins.

  2. Jack says:

    Don’t you just love the way Obama functions via the use of fright tactics? If the situation is so dire — which I believe it is damn close to being — how then does he justify imposing a federally mandated health care plan that will cost trillions more and restrict care that is currently available? Those death panels that we heard about and were poo-pooed by the left, will be reality. Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann vows to rescind this disaster of a program.

    The federal government’s normal inflow of cash from taxes is about $220 billion PER MONTH and that’s without ANY borrowed money. There is therefore ample money to send out all the social security checks and military paychecks, and even enough money to pay interest on the debt.
    Let’s just hope the American people are smart enough to catch on to the Kenyan’s scare tactics about SS and Medicare.
    But don’t hold your breath: a majority of these people voted for the Marxist in 2008.

  4. Kathy says:

    But I thought the SS money Ithat we paid into) was in a trust, just sitting there in a lock box for us to draw on when we retire???!!!! Obama let it out of the bag, the SS money is gone and the Govt is borrowing the money to make the SS pymts – a great point Rubio made on Rush today. Rubio is Great! McConnell is a spineless, elitest, coward – we need REAL leaders in the Senate & he is not one of them.

    I vote that Boehner and the repubs call Obama’s bluff and just get it over with. Give Obama nothing. Let’s go to the wall and just see if the sky really falls. I’m betting it doesn’t and once we know that, Obama has nothing left to threaten us with.

  6. Capt. Marvel says:

    Mitch McConnell is talking about caving to the threats by printing more worthless money. America is spiraling downward under this Marxist betrayer in the Oval Office who is sadly being given aid and comfort by some Republicans who fear AARP reprisals at the ballot box.

    For far too long, we’ve been electing people, in both parties, who are more concerned about their re-elections than they are about showing courage, backbone and doing the right thing for this country. Tough choices have to be made. But they worry more about backlash from special interests than they do about acting responsibly.

    Government is not our nanny.
