The Republicans MUST stand up to this type thing….it’s unconstitutional!
Did you hear about this? America has a Dictator now!
In the WSJ, they reported on Obama’s press conference yesterday. One of his proposals is to allow HIM to automatically increase the debt limit — without Congressional approval! Folks, we now have a dictator — the Dictator of Debt! He’s proposing to end the debt ceiling by giving himself unlimited power to spend without Congressional approval. Wow! This is truly unprecedented!
Here is the story:
Obama Wants Power to Spend Without Limit
Here is a small excerpt:
“President Barack Obama made an opening bid in budget talks with Republicans that calls for a $1.6 trillion tax increase, $50 billion in infrastructure spending in 2013 and new power to raise the federal debt limit, a provocative set of demands that Republicans said represented a step backward in efforts to avoid looming tax increases and spending cuts…”
This is truly frightening, because he could then spend ad infinitum and it would make Congress almost irrelevant. In the Constitution, the budgetary powers reside in Congress, not the Executive branch. The fact that he wants nearly infinite powers to spend would gut Congress of its single greatest power — the power of the purse strings — and transfer that authority to the President instead. It would quite literally create an imperial presidency.
Most Americans are absolutely clueless about the significance of this. It suggests that there is a very dark motive and nefarious purposes beyond what we could have ever imagined, behind Obama’s attempt to negotiate with Congress. He’s seeking virtually unlimited power through the back door! And the mainstream media — the propaganda press — is nearly silent about this!
Last week, in another article on the WSJ website, Treas Sec. Geithner called for ELIMINATION of the debt ceiling. At the time, I thought that it was a galling suggestion. Now we see that the White House has a literal plan to do just that!
