We didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union Speech last night feeling the entertainment offered on Netflix was a more industrious use of our time.
But he sent us this email about it so we will pass it on — mostly to show how smart we are regarding the use of time:
Last night, I spoke directly with the American people about what I believe we can get done together this year.
My priorities are strengthening the middle class and ensuring our economy is rebounding for the whole country, not just the powerful few. I laid out a vision of middle-class economics, to help build on the progress of the past six years and make sure American families can get ahead in the 21st century. That means fighting to expand paid sick leave, helping any student willing to work hard get an affordable education, and cutting taxes for middle-class families by eliminating wasteful tax loopholes.
The new Congress has been on the job for two weeks, and they’ve given us a good look at where they want to take the country, too — they’ve moved quickly to try to roll back our progress on everything from immigration to health care.
I believe Americans are tired of the political back and forth. People want to see an agenda that moves us all forward.
If that’s something you agree with, OFA is asking you to do your part today. It’s never been more important to take a stand.
This morning, I begin the fourth quarter of my presidency. As long as there’s time on the clock, I’ll be doing everything I can.
I hope you will, too:
That’s right, rather than trying to work with an opposition overwhelmingly chosen by the American public in response to his actions, he calls them names and impugns them with false motives.
The President is not just a disgrace but a waste of time. Obama purposely tries to divide us for reasons of ego, power and selfishness.
The Independence Hall Foundation has also issued a statement regarding Obama’s speech.
The Independence Hall Foundation rejects, out of hand, President Obama’s call for an increase in Federal taxes as a sure way to hurt America’s fragile economy.
“The idea of raising the Capitol Gains tax from 23 percent to 28 percent, and taxing, even further, those who already pay the preponderance of taxes, is counterproductive,” said Foundation spokeswoman, Teri Adams. “No matter how the additional revenue is spent.
“President Obama should drop his Robin Hood pretense. In a free enterprise system, POTUS does not pick winners and losers–which is exactly what the President is attempting to do.
“We need to stimulate the economy with pro-growth policies,” said Ms. Adams. Such policies require tax reductions–not increases–and an elimination of burdensome business regulations.
“A ‘Flat Tax’ is probably the best solution for true tax reform, although proponents of the ‘Fair Tax’ have compelling arguments, as well.”
That’s a statement of substance, not name calling.
