So the Obama-messiah’s “stimulus” package is going to repeal the welfare reform passed by the Republican Congress in 1996, and give huge federal “bonuses” to states that put more people on welfare. In other words, the “stimulus” is exactly that: Viagra for the welfare state.
What’s more, it now turns out the supposed “tax refunds” promised by the Obama-messiah are in reality handouts to millions of lower-income people who didn’t earn enough money to pay federal taxes.
In other words, Obama-messiah is simply taking the money from those who earned it and giving it away to people who didn’t earn it, under the guise of a “tax refund.”
As Phyllis Schlafly points out in the article below, “The flow of taxpayers’ money will be so gargantuan as to make Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society expansion of the welfare state look puny.”
I’ve stated before that the Obama-messiah presidency is not about “economic justice.” It’s about revenge. It’s about plunder. It’s about getting back at whitey. It’s about taking from the “haves” and giving to the “have nots.” It’s about the greatest theft and redistribution of wealth in U.S. history, and probably world history.
Dan 11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
Yes, unlike the Obama-messiah’s forefathers who fought whitey at every turn, going all of the way back to the Mau Mau rebellion in Kenya in 1952, good old “Barry O” did things differently. Instead of fighting, he entered “peacefully even upon the fattest places of the province.”
In other words, he infiltrated the system, and rose peacefully to the top of it, conquering the dreaded and despised whitey through subterfuge and deception.
And now that he’s on top, the Obama-messiah will “scatter among them (i.e., among his own people) the prey, and spoil, and riches” of his conquest.
And he will “forecast his devices against the strong holds” of American civilization, taking from those who have built this country and made it great, and giving to those who have been parasites on society by virtue of the professional victim status.
And one day, when all of those young, dumb, white liberals who voted for the Obama-messiah, and who drive around in their daddy’s cars “playing ethnicky jazz to parade their snazz on their five grand stereos,” finally come to realize that they’ve been had by their mandingo man-god, it will be too late.
1Sa 8:18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
In other words, “Too bad, so sad, (signed), your Dad.”
Obama’s Stimulus Bill Repeals Welfare Reform Passed by Republican Congress of 1996
February 27, 2009
by Phyllis Schlafly
Under the subterfuge of helping the economy, Barack Obama’s Stimulus legislates vast new spending programs to finance liberal policy goals that are unnecessary and undesirable. The flow of taxpayers’ money will be so gargantuan as to make Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society expansion of the welfare state look puny.
Barack Obama revealed his long-term goals in a radio interview on Chicago’s WBEZ-FM in 2001. Asked about the Earl Warren court decisions that started long lines of activist decisions in many areas, Obama argued that the Warren court didn’t go far enough: the Warren court changed the laws, but failed to address the economic issues to bring about “redistributive change.”
Obama complained that “the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth” or “economic justice” and failed to “break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution.” The Stimulus is designed to break through those constitutional restraints on government action.
Here are some of the major “change” provisions of the 1000+-page Act that all admit no Member of Congress read before passage. This list doesn’t include any of the dozens of “porky” items that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) boasts Americans don’t care about (and usually don’t know about).
First, the Stimulus repeals the essentials of Welfare Reform passed by the Republican Congress in 1996. It was reluctantly signed by President Bill Clinton after he realized the public was demanding reform, and after it proved popular, he tried to take credit for it.
LBJ’s Great Society welfare was probably the worst of all liberal policies because it was directly responsible for destroying marriage by subsidizing illegitimacy and divorce, thereby creating a matriarchy dependent on government handouts. It wasn’t poverty that destroyed marriage in the lower-income classes; it was the liberal policy of giving taxpayers’ money to women, thereby making the husband and father irrelevant and even an impediment to the flow of easy money.
By setting limits on government handouts, the 1996 Welfare Reform encouraged welfare recipients to get jobs or job training, to make themselves self-sufficient, and to end their long-term dependency on government.
The Obama Stimulus increases the taxpayers’ money that the federal government gives to the states for welfare, and reverses incentives by giving bonuses to states that put more people on welfare. The Stimulus is even worse than the Great Society policies of the 1960s.
That is a good example of the Obama goal to spread the wealth around (regardless of the harm it does).
Second, the Stimulus calls for nearly doubling federal spending on education, which means doubling federal control. This money gives Obama the opportunity to spread his friend William Ayers’s “social justice” teaching (i.e., that America is an oppressive and unjust society) throughout K-16 education.
This goal will be facilitated by Obama’s appointment of Arne Duncan for Secretary of Education who, like Obama and Ayers, is an alumnus of the Chicago political machine. Duncan made news last year with his plan to open a “gay-friendly” public high school in Chicago with a curriculum teaching “the history of all people who have been oppressed and the civil rights movements that have led to social justice and queer studies.”
The gay-friendly school to be called “Pride Campus” was quietly put on hold after Duncan’s appointment as Secretary of Education was announced.
Third, the Stimulus calls for Obama “change” by giving government control over access to medical treatments plus surveillance over online medical records for every American. Giving bureaucrats the power to decide which procedures have “clinical effectiveness” and may be used means nationalizing the health care industry and rationing medical care.
Fourth, the Stimulus greatly expands by about $23 billion nearly every element of the welfare state, including food stamps, Medicaid eligibility, EITC, WIC, and child-support enforcement for single moms. The Governors have just awakened up to the fact that the Stimulus will require their states to raise business taxes if they accept this new free money.
Fifth, Obama’s claim that the Stimulus cuts taxes is a fraud. A large percentage of the alleged tax “refunds” is just another handout because it will go to people who don’t owe any income taxes.
Sixth, the announced purpose of the Stimulus is to create jobs, but Obama’s photo-op to illustrate this at Caterpillar Tractor in Peoria turned into a political donnybrook. National television showed Obama speaking to some of the 20,000 whose jobs have been outsourced by Caterpillar and implied that the Stimulus will enable them to be rehired.
Minutes later, Obama was contradicted by Caterpillar’s CEO who warned that, on the contrary, more layoffs are coming. It looks like the Stimulus will create more government jobs plus an estimated 300,000 jobs for illegal aliens, but not much for anyone else.
