“You Lie”

by

Funny how quickly a censure can come for a member of the GOP for saying the President lies, but a Democrat calls the GOP the Party of killers.

Sen. Stevens comes under a large amount of fire for various legal miscues, yet then we have Charlie Rangel.  Here is the man in charge of the House Ways & Means Committee, which in short means has a lot of influence in spending money, is facing investigations for back taxes to the amount of $1.3 million.  This is not just a one time of short term story.  This has been going on for a number of years.

Can you imagine how long YOU’D stay out of jail if you owed a third of that amount?  I can tell you, 5 minutes.

With that in mind let’s look at what the House thinks of this.  I would think, as I am sure you would, be outraged at such a powerful Committee member, who helps write tax laws, simply ignores them.  You would think that to save face they would jump on him and censure him for his illegal actions, right?  WRONG!

By a vote of 243 to 156, nothing was done.  Not a stern warning, not a harsh word, not a damn thing happens

A representative from Rangel’s office on Wednesday blasted the resolution as a “highly partisan effort.”

“Let’s look at this resolution for what it really is — a highly partisan effort designed to undermine the important work in Congress on health care reform,” the representative, who declined to be named, told FOX News.

So what would make the censure vote against Wilson?  Fair and just I am certain, to Democrats.  This is what Democrats consider ‘open and ethical’. How’s that hope and change working for you?

Read My Lips:

Now I am pretty certain that the President said that 95% of us were getting a tax break if he became president.  Funny how that works, it killed Bush I’s 2nd term.  Will it do the same now?  Number one, I don’t consider .01% a tax cut, and that’s what my “tax break” was all about.  Next year W’s  tax breaks expire.  Democrats have in the past said their is NO chance that they will extend them, let alone make them a point of law forever.

Here it comes, not only that but;  A new value-added tax (VAT) is “on the table” to help the U.S. address its fiscal liabilities, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Monday night. Let’s set aside, though I can’t figure out why we would, the cost of the socialization of health care which will cost more, much, much more, than $1.6 trillion

Pelosi, appearing on PBS’s “The Charlie Rose Show” asserted that “it’s fair to look at” the VAT as part of an overhaul of the nation’s tax code. Do you know what a VAT is?  VAT is a tax on manufacturers at each stage of production on the amount of value an additional producer adds to a product.  So the more “stages” the more the cost and thus the more revenue the Government gets OF YOUR MONEY.

We are talking the cost of everything, let me repeat that, EVERYTHING, will increase in cost.  No new taxes?  If the President doesn’t address this and quick we should see another across the Nation tea Party and 50 marches to DC to protest the tax, make that 2, tax increase being forced on us by the unrepresentative representatives, living in that ivory tower.

Ladies and Gentleman if such things as just this doesn’t scream tyranny to you.  If you don’t see that the Tree of Liberty might need some “Miracle Grow”, you might want to crawl under a rock.  Because you aren’t really paying attention.

Yes the GOP is hardly better than the Dems.  But they are marginally.  They are moving left much slower than the Dems.  But many of the far left are becoming unhappy with the President’s lack of agenda because he wants to continue to run for President, instead of actually doing the job.

He has suffered a lot of drop in his popularity but he is getting a double slam from both sides.  The right and many in the center think he is going to far and a big hit from the left for not going far enough.  Seems his slam at McCain is haunting him.  He did say that we can do it all at once, we can’t afford to just focus on just on issue.

Point, set and match to McCain.

    Good Morning Chas,
    Merle is right if Rangel was a Republican he would be crucified,
    this double standard is starting to make Americans very angry,
    VAT is a tax on each stage of production?,
    there go’s more manufacturing jobs overseas, along with,
    cap and trade.. stimulus.. healthcare, a combination of all these programs will destroy our system,
    or in other words,
    BANKRUPT our country,
    so bad that and we might not recover from,
    then what…. he will fix everything?
    speak up America and let your voices be heard.
    Great post Chas.

    Great post Chas!!!! There is such a double standard it makes my blood boil….. If Rangel was a republican he would have been crucified…
    ===============================
    No doubt Ma’am. It is as it has been for a couple of decades and the MSM supports it. It will stay as such until enough people get fed up with the SNAFU.
