This Sunday October 10th 2010, at a rally in Philadelphia, PA, President Obama attacked the United States Chamber of Commerce for alleged ties to foreign donors. If this sounds a bit familiar it’s because back in 2008 it was alleged that Obama’s campaign had ties to foreign donors. There is no proof of what Obama is saying now it is just a distraction from his administrations failed policies.
What is the difference here, donors for Obama’s campaign did not have to disclose who they were, some donations came from prepaid credit cards, online all you had to do was check a box, you never had to state where you were from. These 350 million dollars of unknown foreign donations were alleged, as President Obama states about the U. S. Chamber of Commerce. Obama’s allegations come from one blog post, how ridiculous, especially for The President of the United States of America.
Why the United States Chamber of Commerce, why would he attack them? After all the Chamber of Commerce is the world’s biggest business federation that represents 3 million businesses. 96% of the Chamber members are small businesses with under 100 employees. Why would anyone, especially the President of the United States go after them. After all, isn’t President Obama saying that he stands for the small business man/woman.
He is constantly putting one group of people against another, as I stated in an earlier article, now President Obama is attacking the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, does he think this is the only way for his party to win. He keeps blaming others for things that go wrong, does Obama not believe in himself, does he not believe in what his party accomplished? Is this why he is on the attack?
Let’s see, the Democrats have pulled off a health care bill that not many Americans or businesses like. Companies are now asking to be exempt or they will have to lay off employees. One specific company comes to mind, that would be McDonalds. Check it out for yourself if it is true. The other is a Union, the Teachers Union. Now what does that say about the health care plan, we could lose teachers if and when they are not exempt from the plan.
I would like to know how the Obama administration is going to make up the money from all of the groups that will be exempt. Who will have to pay more for the people put on the health care plan, we were to subsidize certain groups of people, does that mean that each of us will pay more now?
President Obama has also spent over 780 Trillion Dollars on the shovel ready stimulus package to keep unemployment from rising above 8%, but it is at 9.6%, and he still blames President Bush.
Obama says they created or saved 3,000,000 jobs because of the 780 trillion dollar stimulus package, that is 262 billion 333 million 333 thousand 333 dollars per job, if his numbers are correct. We have 307 million 6 thousand and 550 people in the US. That means that every individual person counted on the last Census could have received $87,444 dollars from the stimulus money. Imagine a family of four would get $347,999 dollars, now that would have helped the economy, and saved the housing market.
Why doesn’t he campaign on what he has done, does he know that Americans are not happy with it, is that why President Obama has to attack the U.S. Chamber of Commerce? How can President Obama attack anyone for unknown campaign dollars when he “allegedly” accepted over $350 million dollars from un-named foreign donors for his own campaign in 2008? There is no proof that the Chamber did any of what he accusing them of, even the NY Times agrees with that.
