Words Matter! Obama’s Budget or Obama’s Blueprint For Bankruptcy?
Words matter and Romney\Ryan and all Republicans need to start using phrases and words that matter and complete the loop of cause and effect. They can’t just mention a fact or figure without mentioning the effects of such policies\budgets. For instance, mentioning that Obama cut 700 billion dollars from Medicare without mentioning the effect that will have on seniors just doesn’t provide the meaning needed for many. Now if you were to say, “Obama cut 700 billion dollars from Medicaid which means senior citizens will have their health care dramatically rationed, they will not recieve the care they need if not he is not voted out of office, there are no two ways about it”, the average senior citizen will clearly understand the repercussions of Obama’s plans.
Speaking of Obama’s budget and saying it will put America in decline or not provide the needed growth is ludicrous. When speaking of Obama’s budget that received exactly zero votes in the Senate, that is zero Republican votes and zero Democrat votes. This is how Obama’s budget must be phrased: Obama’s proposed budget that received a total of zero votes in the Senate, not one Democrat voted for it, is a blueprint for American bankruptcy and the end of America as we know it. Obama’s own secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner testified in oversight hearings that following Obama’s budget we would not be able to borrow the money required to keep the country going by the year 2018; by 2018 we will be so far down the road to insolvency that America will not be able to borrow the money needed to cover our deficit at any interest rate! America will no longer be able to borrow money from China or the rest of the world because at that point they will know we are on our way to collapse and we will not be able to pay back our debts. Do you know what that means? That means the end of America as we know it; it will make the depression seem like child’s play – American’s will be starving, we will be in bread lines, we will all be equally impoverished as Obama distributes the crumbs of poverty. Of course the political class will be fine, but 98% of us will be in dire straits just as it was in the Soviet Union and has been in Cuba for generations.
Cause and effect, complete the loop. Numbers don’t mean anything for the masses without the repercussions clearly spelled out.
