Obama is responsible for the economy


It’s President G.W. Bush’s fault? Let’s reminisce back to Jan. 3, 2007, when speaker of the House was Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid was Senate majority leader and Barack Obama was a senator!

Obama voted “yes” or “present” on every piece of legislation and all the resolutions presented by the above mentioned Pelosi and Reid. So let’s at least be honest with ourselves that all policies, legislation and resolutions that were in place on Jan. 22, 2009, were approved by the then-Sen. Obama. So whatever the present president inherited, he had already approved of. This economy is the current president’s, with nobody else to blame.

Now, being election time, we finally hear from our Democratic Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray.

Cantwell (through bipartisan legislation) has brought in a meager grant for the local airport? Murray is pushing a bill for infertility problems for the veterans? Why do we only hear from these two at election time?

Do they represent the state of Washington or do they represent Washington, D.C.? All year long the blame has been on the House of Representatives, but the two senators have been standing at Sen. Reid’s side with his stack of legislation and policies that grace the Senate floor. If these senators are representing Washington state, maybe they should be trying to improve the economy and get some jobs for the veterans that may take the stress off from them and increase the fertility rate?

Obamacare has already stripped Medicare of $716 billion for the cost of the over 2,000-page document that we still don’t know what’s in it. Now for me this is the biggest scam that has ever been forced on the taxpayers of America. The only people who would approve of this plan are the employees of the public sector and the unions. Why not? They already have waivers, so no worries. It’s the taxpayers who get thrown under the bus for this affair.

If this keeps up, the taxpayer will become extinct and then who will pay the bills?
