Obama, Best Prez in History? Fallacy #5:  He is for the Middle Class

Written by David Hiatt on April 7, 2014

The writer that I refer to as Mr. Blogger just keeps digging the hole deeper.  In his fifth attempt to portray Barack Obama as the greatest President in the universe, quotations from the almighty Barack Hussein Obama are used and he expects the reader to swallow Obama’s gibberish. Of course, when pointing out what the real truth is, the liberal will deflect or put an out of contextual spin on the spoken word.  With no spin, I will show you how Barry is actually destroying the middle class.  Before moving on, let’s take a look at “Fallacy #5”.

5.  He is for the middle class. Here are just a few of the comments made by President Barack Obama in recent months: “Rebuilding our economy starts with strengthening the middle class. Extending tax breaks on 98 percent of families now would give hardworking Americans the security and confidence they need.” In July 2012, during a visit to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, he said, “The vision of a strong middle class is what we’re fighting for. What we need is somebody who’s going to fight every single day to grow the middle class because that’s how our economy grows, from the middle out, from the bottom up, where everybody has got a shot. That’s how the economy grows.” Enough said.

Let’s get this straight.  It was against Obama’s will to extend the BUSH TAX CUTS in 2012.  Even then, Barry only gave extended tax cuts to those that made less than $250,000 s per year which had a dramatic negative effect on small business, the backbone of this country which employs predominantly the middle class.  

Printed in the Washington Post on July 17, 2012, “Researchers determined the plan would actually subject 2.1 million business owners to higher rates; specifically, those who pay pass-through taxes, like most partnerships, LLCs and S-Corporations. The result, less capital in the hands of business owners and diminished labor supply, would cost the United States an estimated $200 billion in economic output and 710,000 jobs.”

Mr. Blogger, I believe you owe an apology to the hundreds of thousands that have lost their job due to President Bush’s tax cut’s being Obama recklessly modified only to hurt the middle class.

Mr. Blogger, I know you think Obamacare will help the middle class according to “Fallacy #4”, but once again, the un-ACA is hurting small business and absorbing the so called middle class income through higher premiums and taxation.  According to the nonpartisan CBO, over two million jobs will be lost due to Obamacare.  If one has taken a look at the CBO’s predictions it will be found that the CBO shows favorable numbers toward the Obama administration.  Not only are jobs being lost but full time workers have been transitioned into part timers in order for companies to pay for the unwanted Healthcare increase. 

If a “middle class” worker happens to be employed at a company that does not offer Healthcare, his/her premium has risen anywhere between 70 to 400 percent and if they should opt out of the plan they will receive a penalty tax.  Of course, Obama originally said families would save $2500 a year.  But then again, Obama has said many things that are outright lies!

Yup, the “middle class” is just having a grand ole time under Obama.  The American “middle class” family is enjoying the rate of inflation.  We are spending over fifty dollars more per household for groceries.  Gas prices have doubled under this administration. Household heating has gone up and will continue to go up due to Bambi’s love toward his anti-fossil fuel tree hugging friends.  College tuition has gone up over twenty-five percent.  Obama and his administration is also allowing illegal aliens to flow into the United States and disrupt “middle class” jobs.

As many “middle class” citizens struggle to keep up with the weekly survival cost of living, clothing, food, and other monthly bills, it has been reported that 1 in 4 have discontinued their savings and retirement plans since Obama took office.  

On a personal note, I am one that dropped out of the company retirement because the company decided to no longer match savings until an ungiven future date. 

With that said, who is to say Mr. Blogger’s Imperial leader won’t raid retirement accounts in the future.  Thirty percent of mortgages are now underwater and wealth has fallen to forty percent during this weakened economy.
“Middle Class”, a population divided by class such as the Platinum, Gold and Silver in Obamacare.  Plato birthed the socialist classes into such groups and Stalin, Lenin and Marx incorporated them into government.  Today, we have “Berry Insane Obama” and his droids attempting to follow a proven failed ideology.  The “middle class” are being drawn into the entitlement crowd and by definition are poor. 

First you become unemployed.  This used to be a 26 week unemployment program and the individual had to seek authenticated employment on a weekly basis.  Now this program has been extended to 90 plus weeks.  Next comes the food stamps and before you know it, the individual that was once at the “middle class” level is at the demise of the Federal Government. 

Mr. Blogger, Obama’s dream for the “middle class” is for all to become poor, under big government control and dependent on government like a heroin addict is in need of his next fix.  This “middle class” man will do all in his power to stay away from big government’s enticement of the addictive entitlement “drug”.
