Once again we must give Obama credit for the great job he is doing. He came up with a great plan to reduce the federal deficit. First be forced by the congress, which was controlled by the Republicans, to cut his spending then raise taxes. Now he can take credit for reducing the deficit and increasing our taxes. Obama’s math is like no other he can brag about reducing the deficit and then request the debt limit be raised.
Obama and his buddies have also found a way to cut funding to the food stamps program and make it look like the Republicans are the cause of it. Anyone willing to do their homework will find out the real reason for the cuts and why. I am sure some people like last week’s letter writer will not like the answer but then again it is something Obama can take credit for. The current food-stamp cut was set up by multiple deals made when Democrats held both chambers of Congress and the White House. They used money from the food-stamp program to pay for other priorities and pet projects. What happen on the first of November of this year $5 billion was cut from the food stamp program the big reason why was because Obama needed $4.5 billion of it to pay for Michelle Obama’s pet project called Let’s Move. Let’s Move is the anti-obesity program to get school children to eat healthier. When Obama signed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act he said he would need to take cash from one pocket to feed the other we now know which pocket he took the cash from.
The problem is people will either never get the message or never believe that the great Obama and his wife would take money from the food stamp program to fund Michelle’s pet project. Obama will only need to tell another lie that the Republicans cut the food stamp program and the people on the food stamp program will believe him. They only know money has been cut from the program without knowing the real reason why. The bottom line is the Obama’s are the one taking food out of the mouths of hungry children and no one else for yet another personal agenda program that is sure fail like his Obama care.
