It’s time to put a lid on it. It’s time to nip it in the bud. It’s time to reign it in. It’s time to … well, you get my drift.
“It” to which I am referring is the constant beleaguering of the truth by the left, liberals, and Democrats. But more specifically, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comment on the record employment rate in America. The U.S. Bureau of Labor reported the 23rd record high of people employed, and an additional 128,000 jobs in October. The unemployment rate is at a record 4.1%.
So there’s two ways to comment on this as a politician: You can try to take credit for this in whatever small part you can or a bigger part your party played in making a better economy, or, as Pelosi chose to do, you can belittle it, call it a bad thing, and blame the other party (Republicans) for this “disaster”:
“The October jobs report offers further evidence that the Republicans’ disastrous special interest agenda is hollowing out the middle class while enriching the wealthy and well-connected. Clearly, the GOP Tax Scam has left our country with nothing but broken promises and an under-performing economy.”
Bless her heart.
It’s bad enough that conservatives, Christians, and the “fly-over deplorables” are vilified and denigrated by every liberal on capital hill, but when they start making statements which they apparently believe we are stupid enough to believe— well, it really rubs me the wrong way.
Saying the Democrats are working to provide “economic security” Americans need, she gets around to blaming Republicans for more: “Republicans must put American families first and join us to enact this critical legislation. ”
For one thing, Socialism is not “economic security.” There is no such thing as “spreading the wealth” or “sharing the wealth” or however you want to say it. There is no fiscal reasoning that supports things like Medicare for All — free healthcare is not free; someone pays for it. The government doesn’t “pay” for anything — the money comes from tax payers, one way or the other.
The “GOP Tax Scam” has put more money in the pockets of more Americans than anything the Democrats have done or want to do. You cannot tax a country into prosperity. You can, however, enact laws and taxes that create economic disparity, which causes social unrest, which causes the breakdown of a lawful society.
One of the greatest, if not the greatest, harm to society – and families – is abortion on demand, which is a big part of the Democratic platform. It’s an affront to the God-given right to life for all people. Premiums in the Obamacare exchange plans include hidden fees that support abortion on demand. Luckily 26 states now have opt-out choices for abortion fees.
Obamacare has done more damage to the healthcare system (which was never “broken” as they claimed) by over-regulating insurance companies and subsidizing premiums which added to the ever-growing welfare state and tax burden.
You have to live under a rock to not see — or intentionally ignore — the progress this country has made in so many areas, despite what the liberals and media want us to believe. So don’t give me the propagandized version of your truth; the facts are the facts are the facts.
If you don’t want to take any credit for it, or give credit where credit is due, fine.
Otherwise, put a lid on it.
