The President seems to think he is getting better at his job. So let's take a look at just a few things that everyone should be interested in. The national debt when he took office was $10.0 trillion and is expected to be $16.4 trillion at the end of the year. That is a $1.6 trillion increase per year over four years for a total increase of $6.4 trillion. By the way the Democratic run senate has not passed a budget in three years and the Republicans cannot pass anything that does not come to a vote.
Gasoline prices averaged $2.11 at the end of 2008 and currently the national average is $3.51. That is a 66 percent increase during his term. Now think about the price of fuel when it comes to driving to work, flying for vacation or business, and growing your food. Do you think you are paying the same price as when he took office?
The last time it was this high was in 1948. Our social security fund is going and if the truth was told is broke and by having 12.8 million less people paying into the fund, when do you think it will go bankrupt?
The number of people when the president took office on food stamps was approximately 31.5 million people. Currently the number of people on food stamps is 46.2 million which represents a 47 percent increase over four years. Keep in mind that approximately 160 million people currently pay nothing in income taxes. Where do you think the money is going to come from to continue to pay for these programs?
The president has kept inflation artificially low because they continue to print money and have kept loan rates at near zero all while borrowing from China like a drug addict on cocaine. Increasing food and fuel costs makes saving for a rainy day impossible. If you lived through the Jimmy Carter era, you know that 20 percent interest rates and high inflation are a horrible combination and when this administration quits devaluing the dollar, interest rates will skyrocket along with inflation and the gas lines and hopefully the food lines won't follow. After all, when your debt is 100 percent of the Gross National Product, you are for all intent and purposes bankrupt.
Now the president is trying to compromise our religious beliefs through his healthcare plan. Remember Nancy Pelosi when she said, we have to pass the bill to find out what is in the bill. I am sure we can't wait to see what else is in the bill.
Our individual freedoms are at stake. Debt makes us beholding to those whom we owe. High prices for food and fuel erode your quality of living by reducing what you can save. High unemployment creates a feeling of helplessness and despair and ultimately affects your self-esteem. Finally, a government healthcare plan that attacks your beliefs is an assault on our very existence as one nation under God.
If the president believes he is getting better at his job, then I must ask you, are you getting better because of his job?
