“No pecuniary consideration is more urgent, than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt: on none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of time more valuable.” George Washington, Message to the House of Representatives, 1793

Obama Invokes George Washington in Debt Speech: He ‘Grappled’ With Taxes, Too. Um, Mr Obama, you have been an abject failure, and Washington would agree. Read the quote above and then please don’t ever disrespect George Washington again with your empty rhetoric!

Section 376 of Obama’s tax and spend “jobs” bill ends state sovereignty, turns our Republic into a dictatorship and destroys the foundation upon which our country was built. The fundamental transformation of America is almost complete.Read the bill.  (Emphasis added)

“SEC. 376. FEDERAL AND STATE IMMUNITY.

(a) Abrogation of State Immunity- A State shall not be immune under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution from a suit brought in a Federal court of competent jurisdiction for a violation of this Act.

(b) Waiver of State Immunity-

(1) IN GENERAL-

(A) WAIVER- A State’s receipt or use of Federal financial assistance for any program or activity of a State shall constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution or otherwise, to a suit brought by an employee or applicant for employment of that program or activity under this Act for a remedy authorized under Section 375(c) of this Act.

(B) DEFINITION- In this paragraph, the term `program or activity’ has the meaning given the term in section 606 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d-4a).”

Here is the link to 42 USC 2000d-4a which defines “program or activity”:

“For the purposes of this subchapter, the term “program or activity” and the term “program” mean all of the operations of—

(1)
(A) a department, agency, special purpose district, or other instrumentality of a State or of a local government; or

(B) the entity of such State or local government that distributes such assistance and each such department or agency (and each other State or local government entity) to which the assistance is extended, in the case of assistance to a State or local government;”

Also…

“any part of which is extended Federal financial assistance.”

The above is stated as an extension of the actual citation of the general section itself.

More from Section 376 (emphasis added):

“(2) EFFECTIVE DATE- With respect to a particular program or activity, paragraph (1) applies to conduct occurring on or after the day, after the date of enactment of this Act, on which a State first receives or uses Federal financial assistance for that program or activity.”

Wake up Governors!! Wake up America!! Tell Congress about Section 376 and why they must not pass this bill.

Obama’s tax and spend “jobs” bill is a stealth move to end state sovereignty and transform what made our nation the greatest country the world has ever known. If Obama’s bill passes, kiss freedom goodbye and say hello to tyranny.

Schoen: Obama Setting Trap for Republicans

Tuesday, 20 Sep 2011 08:55 AM By David A. Patten

Democratic pollster and Fox News commentator Doug Schoen tells Newsmax that the tax-and-deficit plan President Barack Obama unveiled on Monday is intended to set a political trap for Republicans, rather than offering a viable legislative proposal to improve the economy.

“Obama is now just as concerned with politics as he is with substance,” Schoen says. “This is as much about the election next year as it is about balancing the budget and creating jobs this year.

“Class warfare and tax increases are all about setting up the Republicans for political attacks, not bipartisan cooperation — as the rhetoric in today’s speech made clear,” Schoen says…

‘Wealthy’ Congressman Explains Why ‘Class Warfare Has Never Created a Job’Congressman Explains Why ‘Class Warfare Has Never Created a Job’

Business owner and Republican congressman John Fleming appeared on MSNBC Monday to explain why raising his own personal income tax — a measure encouraged by President Obama — would prove detrimental to his businesses and prevent him from continuing to create jobs.

Fleming, who warned his MSNBC host that “class warfare has never created a job,” clarified that while he might be better off financially than most, only a small fraction of his $6.3 million in earnings is left over after covering expenses and reinvesting in his businesses.
Fleming, who owns several Subway and UPS franchises, stated that additional taxes on net earnings would amount to “money taken out of capital for reinvestment for creating more jobs. … So the more you tap that down, the less jobs that are gonna be created.”

He Explains here: Being successful in business is a virtue, not a vice…

AP Fact Checks Obama: Are the Rich Really Taxed Less Than Secretaries?AP Fact Checks Obama: Are the Rich Really Taxed Less Than Secretaries?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama makes it sound like there are millionaires all over America paying taxes at lower rates than their secretaries.

“Middle-class families shouldn’t pay higher taxes than millionaires and billionaires,” Obama said Monday. “That’s pretty straightforward. It’s hard to argue against that.”

The data tells a different story. On average, the wealthiest people in America pay a lot more taxes than the middle class or the poor, according to private and government data. They pay at a higher rate, and as a group, they contribute a much larger share of the overall taxes collected by the federal government…

With the president pushing the ‘Buffett Rule’ in his new $1.5 trillion deficit-reduction plan, new IRS data show millionaires are already paying taxes at a much higher rate than middle-class families.
