Amy Payne over at the Heritage Foundation penned a post today that breaks down how well the President’s “plan” has worked. According to the latest Obama campaign ad featuring former President Bill Clinton, President Obama’s plan is working and needs to continue because it worked under Clinton.
Whoa, is anyone else’s mind spinning?
First, Ms. Payne’s piece. She briefly examines three areas that are the top struggles reported by small businesses in a National Federation of Independent Business study: taxation, regulation, and poor sales. Go read it. A few highlights:
- Ernst & Young estimates that President Obama’s tax hike would kill about 710,000 jobs and cause real wages to drop
- In his first three years, 106 new regulations were added costing more than $46B per year in new costs for Americans
- Struggling sales (remember how all of us need to start buying more to help the economy but we’re going to get more taxes) are being driven by the higher unemployment and higher fuel costs
Great. While some out there have welcomed their new incompetent overlord*, I think the rest of us are ready for some real hope and change. Maybe President Obama is all hopped up on the Tiger’s Blood with Charlie Sheen and hanging out at the Anger Management after parties.
* – the only overlords worth welcoming are us, of course and zombies. Just don’t eat the bath salts.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
