Question: do you agree with Rush?

Rush: Obama “Trying To Dismantle…The American Dream”http://bit.ly/Q36rjH (via our friends at CNSnews.com)

“He is trying – Barack Obama is trying – to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream. There’s no other way to put this. There’s no other way to explain this.” -Rush Limbaugh

Do you agree with Rush??

The Obama Blame-Game strategy

 
 
 

Who was right? … you decide.

The top tax rate under Jimmy Carter was 70 percent. Obama says we need more money from the rich (increase taxes) so we can spur economic growth. Then why did we have the recession under Jimmy Carter (the top tax rate was 70 percent)? It proves higher taxes do not grow the economy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 1980, President Carter, his supporters in Congress and the Liberal News Media (AKA Obama News Corp) asked how can we afford presidential candidate Ronald Reagan’s proposed tax cuts. Reagan’s critics claimed tax cuts would lead to more inflation and higher interest rates, while Reagan claimed the tax cuts would lead to more economic growth and higher living standards.

WHO WAS RIGHT?

  1. Inflation went from 12.5 percent in 1980 to 3.9 percent in 1984.
  2. Economic growth went from minus .2 percent in 1980 to plus 7.3 percent in 1984.
  3. Interest rates dropped from 18.9 percent on a 30-year mortgage to 8 percent.

WHAT REALLY CHANGED AFTER REAGAN’S TAX CUTAUGUST 15, 1981?

Economic growth was more than 50 percent higher for the next seven years after the tax cuts, than the previous seven years under Jimmy Carter.

Rapid economic growth unlike government spending programs (stimulus package) proved to be the most effective way to reduce unemployment and poverty (are you listening Mr. Obama?) while creating opportunity for the disadvantaged. Reagan’s peacetime boom created nearly 35 million jobs and the economy was one third larger when Reagan left office.

THE MYTH ABOUT TAX CUTS AND THE RICH

Under Reagan’s tax cuts, the top 10 percent of wage earners’ percentage of taxes paid went from 48 percent in 1981 to 57.2 percent in 1988. That means even though tax rates were lowered, more money came into the Treasury (which proves it’s not what the tax rate is, it’s how much money comes in).

 

 

 

 

 

 

John F. Kennedy (Democrat) said, “Our true choice is not between tax reduction on one hand and the avoidance of large Federal deficits on the other. It is increasingly clear that no matter what party is in power, so long as our national security needs keep rising, an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough revenue to balance our budget; just as it will never produce enough jobs or enough profits.” (So business can expand.)

In short, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low. The soundest way to raise revenues in the long run is to cut tax rates now. (Mr. Obama can you hear me, “now!”) With Kennedy’s across-the-board tax cuts, tax revenues climbed from 94 billion dollars in 1961 to 153 billion dollars in 1968 (62 percent increase). Reagan tax revenues went from just over 500 billion dollars to one trillion dollars.

HARDING AND COOLIDGE TAX CUTS

When Harding took office in 1921, he faced a severe economic recession from Woodrow Wilson (Democrat). Harding with Treasury Secretary Mellon (Geitner could learn something from Mellon) cut government spending by 40 percent. After Harding’s death, President Calvin Coolidge and Mellon continued the tax and budget cut policies of Harding. Obama should adopt Coolidge’s actions. Coolidge cut taxes four times, reduced the national debt by 33 percent while maintaining surpluses every year in office. Christopher Frenze of the Joint Economic Committee said, “The Reagan tax cuts like similar measures enacted in:

1920 – Harding/Coolidge

1960 – John F. Kennedy

showed that reducing excessive tax rates stimulates growth, reduces tax avoidance and can increase the amount and share of tax payments by the rich.

THE BEST ECONOMIC POLICY: TAX CUTS, BUDGET CUTS AND LIMITED GOVERNMENT … BETTER YET CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT.

Art Laffer (Economic Advisor to Reagan) said, “The policies in place by the Obama administration will not work. I do not see any improvement in the economy. There is no incentive to produce in this economy; too many regulations stagnating business creation.” He also feels very likely that double-dip recession can happen.

 

 
 
 

How can it even make sense…..

Approaching 75 years of age? … not good for your health

 In a conversation about the “future,” Dr. Suzanne Allen, head of emergency services at the Johnson City Medical Center in Tennessee, was asked if she has seen any affects of Obama Care in her work.  “Oh, yes. We are seeing cutbacks throughout the services we provide. For example, we are now having to deal with patients who would normally receive dialysis can no longer be accepted. In the past, there was always automatic approval under Medicare for anyone who needed dialysis — not anymore.” So, what will be their outcome? “They will die soon without dialysis,” she stated.


What about other services? She indicated as of 2013 (after the election), no one over 75 will be given major medical procedures unless approved by locally administered Ethics Panels. These Panels will determine whether a patient receives medical treatment or not. While details on specific operating procedures and schedules, Dr. Allen points out that most life-threatening emergencies do not occur during normal hospital business hours, and if there are emergencies that depend to be resolve within minutes or just few hours, the likely hood of getting these Panels approval in time to save a life are going to be very challenging and difficult, if not impossible she said.
This applies to major operations such as receiving stents, bypass surgery, kidney operations, or treating for an aneurysm that would be normally covered under Medicare today. In other words, if you needed a life-saving operation, Medicare will not provide coverage anymore after 2013 if you are 75 or over. When in 2013? “We haven’t been given a specific date — could be in January or July….but it’s after the election.”
This is shocking to anyone who will be 75 this year. Her advice — get healthy and stay healthy. We do not know the specifics of the actual implementation of the full Obama Care policies and procedures — “they haven’t filtered down to the local level yet. But we are already seeing severe cuts in what we provide to the elderly — we refused dialysis to an individual who was 78 just the other day….we refused to give stents to a gentleman who was in his late 80s.” Every day, she said, we are seeing these cutbacks aimed at reducing care across the board for anyone who is over 75.
We can only hope that Obama Care will be overturned by the Supreme Court — otherwise, this is a death sentence to those who are over 75… perhaps you should pass this on to your friends who are thinking of voting for Obama this year.
Regardless if you have private health care coverage now (a Medicare supplement) — it will no longer apply after 2013 if the Ethics Panels disapprove of a procedure that may save your life. Scary, scary, scary. Think about this. You? Your parents? Your loved ones?
Didn’t know about it? Of course, not. As Nancy Pelosi said….”well, if you want to know what’s in the bill, you’ll have to read it…” after it was passed.
This is a graphic reminder of the need to stay healthy. Get your plot now at Forest Lawn… while they last. Is this a death sentence to those of us who will reach 75?… Yes!

Please do pass this along to those in your address book.

Join us this morning at 7 am for Conservatively Speaking

Mike Wade and John Weston will continue to look at the races shaping the 2012 elections and the fall out from the Supreme Court Ruling … so is it a tax or isn’t a tax?

Depends on when you ask the question…

 
 
 

Seniors BEWARE – important

The following was passed along and reach us here at the Editorial Board of Conservatively Speaking.  The following has not been verified, however we’ve decided to share that, that has been shared with us given the overall importance of what is happening and for all that we fear is still to come.

 

Subject: Seniors BEWARE – important

I can’t verify this email, but it wouldn’t surprise me.  The link below is from Truth or fiction it has all the e-rumors about Obama care.

Well ladies and gentlemen. Here it is!

Subject:   Seniors BEWARE –

“Seniors”

Forget about getting to age 75, this exact thing happened to me this morning at
Danbury hospital here in Ct.    I was scheduled for a cardio-lite stress test.  This is a tread mill stress test where during the process they inject nuclear dye into your blood stream and then put you in a CAT scan or something similar and take a picture of your heart.  If all is good the heart shows up red, if there are blocked arteries anywhere that portion of the heart shows up pink.  I have had three of these
tests in the past twelve years due to blocked arteries discovered in 2000.   They use the test to determine if I need a roto router or a bypass operation.
So I arrive at the hospital at 8 am this morning and I am in the process of checking in at Cardiology and
the lady says that my appointment has been canceled.  She makes a call and speaks with someone and hands me the phone.  It is a nurse in cardiology who says that my medical coverage denied the procedure.  I said it was routine, part of my heart maintenance
process and ordered by my PCP and with approval from my Cardiologist who is the head of Danbury Cardiology which is right where I was standing.  She goes, “yes but we were denied our request”.  So I say, I have Medicare so what is my backup insurance doing
denying anything.  Then the bombshell, she says it was the Medicare board that denied the procedure.

At that point, I turn to everyone behind me, and it was a long line, and I say to them “well you won’t have to wait too long today because my stress test procedure was just canceled by a Medicare Death Panel.  I am only 67 so can you imagine what is going to happen when we really get old”.    The entire waiting room and everyone there from patients to staff just went dead silent.  So I turn to the front desk and tell them,  ” I guess I will have to write a letter to the editor of the Danbury News Times and call my Senators and Congressman and let them know the Death Panels have already convened”.    Then I walked out.
By the time I got home the message machine was blinking.  My PCP had already called and so did the hospital and guess what,  Medicare decided to approve my stress test procedure and if I could get back down to the hospital they would fit me in right now for this 3 hour procedure.  I told them I couldn’t make it, that I was going fishing because I didn’t know how many more fishing trips I could get in before I went into cardiac arrest but not to worry about me costing the government any money because I am a 30% disabled Army veteran, due to Agent Orange poisoning which is what caused this heart problem to begin with, and I qualify to be buried for free in a plain pine wrapper in the cheap graves section at any National Cemetery. I certainly don’t want to cost our government any money so maybe we just won’t do this procedure anymore and we can use the money to redistribute it to all of the illegal’s to keep them alive so they can mow the lawns at the National Cemeteries.

So this Death Panel crap has started.  If we don’t vote this guy and his criminal cronies out of office this November then we will all die younger than we should as broke paupers as the country goes bankrupt.  Feel free to distribute my note to anyone and make it a mission to not only make your vote count but on behalf of all of us please make an effort to change the thinking of anyone remotely willingly to get intellectually engaged in this critical time in our country’s history.

WELL ISN’T THIS SOME SPECIAL NEWS GRANDMA AND PAPA!!!

Just answer the question Ms Warren…

Dear Elizabeth Warren,
Are you an Indian? If you are, than I’m a tree?
And Gov. Deval, you don’t speak for me, when I ask a politician a question I expect an answer, so you won’t answer the question made by Fox 25 news reporter, than I will ask, Are you an Indian? Did you lie? Why won’t you clear this up?
Pretending to be an Indian is an insult to all respectable, true, original people of these lands we call the United States!!
