Rick Santorum attacked Mitt Romney at the hopefully last and final debate (thank God) on his health care plan being the same as OBama’s and it is an accurate statement as both were devised by the same man by the name of Johnathan Gruber who acknowledges that both plans and mandates are one and the same. When Mitt says it did not require borrowing any money, that too is true, since it is the federal government that pays for it, and not the State of Massachusetts. However Santorum said check it out on Politi-facts, as if that is the Holy Grail of all truth.
The people who do check out the facts such as when President OBama said in his State of the Union Address that business had added more than 3 million jobs in the last 22 months and it was the largest increase since 2005, politi-facts had no problem in saying the information was true. 3.2 million new jobs were added in the last 22 months in the private sector.
It is who ever runs the meter that is showing anything but the truth. Although they stated the facts as spoken by President OBama as being accurate the meter registered it as being half-truth. It was when the people demanded it be corrected they changed the meter to mostly truth. There is no way that they are going to come out and say that anything that is 100% true, when it has been spoken by our President,is the full truth, obviously.
When President OBama said that we are more independent from foreign oil than what we have ever been and 50% more free than what we have been since 2005, again the facts when checked by the Department of energy show that to be 100% true and again they acknowledge that, until the meter registers it as half-true. Either the meter is constipated or someone needs to check their meter manager out as if a group,company, or organization is going to be legitimate and advertise itself as such then it needs to obey the dictates that governs the same. It costs them so much more to deal in half accurate facts when the meter turns truth to half truth, while claiming to be the site for the truth, than it does to be honest as represented.
When Rick Santorum was speaking of social and religious rights last night he got off on the Declaration of Independence and was quoting it as the rights given us in the Constitution so I will proceed to offer the data of each as follows: The Declaration Of Independence was nothing more than a statement adopted to explain why the 13 colonies in America were declaring their Independence from England and gave no one any rights or power under it, beyond announcing our freedom from England and it was signed on July 4, 1776.
It was the Constitution of the United States that gave all power and rights to both The Government and the people. Religion and any rights given them, was not mentioned or even written into the Constitution, that gave all power of the law to the Supreme court. Our founding Fathers very wisely understood the influence that could be played on the Congress and Senate so set the Supreme Court up with full power to establish law. The Constitution was signed Sept. 17, 1787.
It was not until 1802 that the amendment was added to the Constitution to allow Religion the freedom to practice Religion with the understanding that Religion would play no role in government. If Religion broke the law of the land then they would be punished the same as mankind. Some say that John Locke established separation of Church and State but in truth it was when Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to the Danbury Baptist Church that it was made clear that religion would play no role in government and in exchange for that government would not begin a Religion of their own. the conservatives and the right-wing seem to think that their Religious beliefs were guaranteed under the Declaration of Independence as too many times I hear them quoting it as the concepts of the Constitution and it clearly is not nor does it give power to anyone beyond explaining our Freedom from England.
We all are paying the lowest taxes that have ever been paid in the history of America, and unless we eliminate the Bush tax cuts so that we can add revenue to the Treasury so we can pay our bills we will not pay the deficit down. We are being led to believe that the Republicans care about the deficit and it is not true as when Cheney said the deficit does not matter he spoke for all of the Republican party.
Spending increases the gross national product and in doing so it raises our credit rating, where as denying the taxes to put back into the Treasury so we can pay our bills both destroys our credit rating as well as lowers the GNP.However if we pay it off then our credit rating increases. Every President since Herbert Hoover raised the taxes until it came to George “Dubya” Bush and the conservatives refuse to have any one pay taxes or to touch the Bush tax cuts because they do not believe that anyone has to pay taxes. They and the Tea Party both would like to weaken government entirely by eliminating the Treasury.
This one is a piece of cake to figure out who is right and who is delusional on the subject, because we all know that if we do not put money into our checking accounts and go out and start writing checks it won’t be long before we are writing bad checks because we have depleted the amount we had to spend. The same is true if we are not putting revenue from taxes collected into the United States Treasury.
We may raise the profit or the need for the gross national product in the Store, but common sense tells us all that when we buy more than the money we have, we will ruin our credit as well as deplete our checking account, unless we put money into our accounts to cover it. When we pay off the money we spend by having the money in our accounts then we increase our own GNP from the purchases that we buy,as well as, increase our own credit rating. The same is true when government collects the taxes to pay off their debt or the deficit. Yet the Republicans insist that the free market will determine what the need is, and it is hogwash and the mentality of the 1890′s that is talking.
The OBama healthcare plan is not a top down government plan as told by Rick Santorum, as it deals with our own doctors and private insurance companies,his statement of the same in last nights debate is false, and it will not cost the American public 95 billion dollars as being told by Mitt Romney, but instead will save us 210 billion dollars, as told by the experts in the field whose business it is to know the difference.
It has already saved Senior Citizens 250 million dollars. No one will need to change from their own Doctors or insurance company unless they wish to do so.The mandate portion of the bill is currently in the Supreme Court checking if it is legal to do so, if not, it will not become part of the plan. It eliminates all insurance companies from discluding Americans due to pre-existing disease and grants parents the right to cover adult children until the age of 26 on their coverage.
Finally the greatest lie of all that is being acted out in the State of Georgia is to get President OBama’s name off of the primary as well as general election ballot. The Republican conservatives claim that he is not a citizen of America so therefore cannot qualify to run as President. As crazy as it is to those of us who recognize that this idea exist in America, these people still refuse to believe Barack OBama is a citizen. The Democrats have sent it to the Federal judges in the State to get the movement stopped. For the sake of the people in Georgia, as well as their own Constitutional right to vote, we can only hope the Democrats win, and that our President’s name will be left on their ballots.
There is so much talk going on against OBama and the military as well as foreign policy and energy, that are so much more about lies than truth, but I’m fairly certain that most of us know by now what a “bang up job,” that Obama is doing in those areas, so I will end it at this, and wish everybody a good day with an even better evening. Don’t forget to hug someone.
