The Politicians’ Christmas Gifts to America

Craig HueyEconomics, Education1 Comment

Like a perverse Santa Claus, Congress and the President delivered last-minute gifts to America: more spending and debt, plus government-subsidized intrusion into citizens’ daily lives.

Were there any good gifts for American taxpayers? A few:

  1. No bailouts for insurance companies, as originally required by Obamacare.
  2. End of the oil export ban on American petroleum.
  3. Prevents the IRS from formally harassing non-profit groups for their political views.

However, the latest federal budget dumped on the American people lumps of coal.

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, Congress Gave to Me:

12. Continued funding for President Obama’s “refugee” program, even though federal officials cannot fully vet the immigrants fleeing the Middle East.

11. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), which allows private companies to share cybersecurity information with federal agencies, including the NSA, notwithstanding certain privacy laws.

10. Funding for President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty, both DACA and DAPA.

9. Bailouts for irresponsible countries through the corrupt International Monetary Fund.

8. Funding for the EPA’s overreach into America’s waterways.

7. Defunds Obamacare’s “Cadillac Tax” yet does not bring down the costs of the program.

6. Funding for the Obama Administration’s ongoing war on carbon energy, particularly coal.

5. Reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which increases the number of expanded government land-holdings.

4. Four times the H-2B visas, pushing more Americans out of work, replaced by cheap, foreign labor.

3. Massive increases into wasteful solar and wind tax subsidies

2. Funding for Planned Parenthood, despite horrific revelations of organ harvesting in PP clinics.

1. One more year of unrestrained federal spending. The bill busts spending caps agreed upon earlier this year, with a whopping $50 billion and no payment on debt.

One consolation prize: An unprecedented 113 Congressmen, almost entirely Republicans, voted against this spending spree, riddled with illiberal regulations and revenue for Obama’s anti-liberty agenda.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  1. Most all the above mentioned constitutional-deconstructionist governance, which moves America closer to committing national-suicide, occurred at the hands of ‘establishment’ conservative-impostors and there useful-pawns who infect the GOP like a cancer. The excuses for unconstitutional governance under the pretense of national security, leaving our southern border wide open while talking tough on the illegal immigration, not opposing socialist and global-engineer Obama by not using all the resources available to senate and House GOP majorities, flow like a river from establishment GOP politicians and their accomplices on globalist Rupert Murdoch’s FOX News network.

    And now, conservative-impostors in the GOP Senate and House leadership espouse more conservative rhetoric while not using the resources available to them to oppose Obama’s unconstitutional use of Executive Orders to implement gun-control. The incremental deconstruction of America’s 2nd Amendment through gun control being a primary target of democrat socialists/globalists, to tactically eliminate the primary intended effect of the 2nd Amendment, which is to give ‘perspective tyrants’ who make their way into government a ‘healthy fear’ of the citizens they would otherwise rule over as tyrants under the pretense of national security.

    If we do not cleanse the GOP of the ‘establishment’ constitutional-deconstructionists and global-engineers infecting it like a cancer, the GOP will continue to be the dialectical alternative to democrat-socialists who destroy America at light speed, with the GOP merely destroying America slower and in different ways.
