Obama used his weekly address to mock the tea party, today. He did this by cleverly changing the oft repeated tea party refrain; “we can’t spend our way to prosperity” to “we can’t simply cut our way to prosperity” :
The Hill reported:
Spurring the economy will take investments, as well as spending cuts, President Obama said Saturday his weekly address.
“We can’t simply cut our way to prosperity,” Obama said. “We need to do what’s necessary to grow our economy; create good, middle-class jobs; and make it possible for all Americans to pursue their dreams.”
That sound you just heard was 100 million voices crying out, “Why the hell not???”
Less government spending means more money in the private sector for the American people to invest as we see fit instead of the big spending totalitarians currently lording over us.
Obama wants to raise taxes, and continue to “invest” as he sees fit, with minimal cuts, which has been working brilliantly, so far.
His address was recorded from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh where he was touting his new “Advanced Manufacturing Partnership”, an “investment initiative”, which sounds like more government meddling in business affairs to me, picking winners and losers. The plan calls for $500 million in ” key investments” in American manufacturing.
