Obama: A Keynesian, Not a Communist

Written by Gary North on February 15, 2013

Gary North’s Reality Check

“It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.” — Sun Tzu

Step one: know your enemy.

The President’s State of the Union address was long: 11 pages, single-spaced.

It was standard stuff: a laundry list of Keynesian programs, few of which will get by the House of Representatives. It was an exercise in futility. Fortunately.

He began his laundry list with economic inequality, as a good Progressive always does. “But we gather here knowing that there are millions of Americans whose hard work and dedication have not yet been rewarded. Our economy is adding jobs — but too many people still can’t find full-time employment. Corporate profits have skyrocketed to all-time highs — but for more than a decade, wages and incomes have barely budged.”

He appealed to the middle class, as every politician does. “It is our generation’s task, then, to reignite the true engine of America’s economic growth — a rising, thriving middle class. (Applause.)” This is where the votes are. Then came bipartisan platitudes:

It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country — the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, no matter what you look like, or who you love. It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few; that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. (Applause.)

Nothing Communist here. Why people say he is a Communist baffles me. He is a Keynesian. They all are.

The American people don’t expect government to solve every problem. They don’t expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. But they do expect us to put the nation’s interests before party. (Applause.) They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. For they know that America moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all.

This is Sam Rayburn’s politics: “Go along to get along.”

He talked about the federal deficit. He lied. He said they have reduced the deficit. “Over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficit by more than $2.5 trillion — mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans.” Reduce the deficit? It runs $1 trillion a year. Nobody has done anything to reduce it. As for spending cuts, both parties are trying to get out of the sequestration cuts that will hit in March.

“As a result, we are more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances.” At $1 trillion a year, the crisis is inevitable.

But he wants out of the 2011 deal.

In 2011, Congress passed a law saying that if both parties couldn’t agree on a plan to reach our deficit goal, about a trillion dollars’ worth of budget cuts would automatically go into effect this year. These sudden, harsh, arbitrary cuts would jeopardize our military readiness. They’d devastate priorities like education, and energy, and medical research. They would certainly slow our recovery, and cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs. That’s why Democrats, Republicans, business leaders, and economists have already said that these cuts, known here in Washington as the sequester, are a really bad idea.

It’s deficits today, deficits forever. It’s kick the can.

He correctly identified the #1 problem: Medicare.

Yes, the biggest driver of our long-term debt is the rising cost of health care for an aging population. And those of us who care deeply about programs like Medicare must embrace the need for modest reforms — otherwise, our retirement programs will crowd out the investments we need for our children, and jeopardize the promise of a secure retirement for future generations.

The solution? Tax the rich . . . the universal solution for Democrats.

But we can’t ask senior citizens and working families to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while asking nothing more from the wealthiest and the most powerful. (Applause.) We won’t grow the middle class simply by shifting the cost of health care or college onto families that are already struggling, or by forcing communities to lay off more teachers and more cops and more firefighters. Most Americans — Democrats, Republicans, and independents — understand that we can’t just cut our way to prosperity. They know that broad-based economic growth requires a balanced approach to deficit reduction, with spending cuts and revenue, and with everybody doing their fair share. And that’s the approach I offer tonight.

He says he will go with Simpson-Bowles. Really? Why now? Why not when it was proposed in 2010? Why did he oppose it? Why did the Democrats in Congress oppose it?

On Medicare, I’m prepared to enact reforms that will achieve the same amount of health care savings by the beginning of the next decade as the reforms proposed by the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission. (Applause.)

Meanwhile, stick it to the rich!

Already, the Affordable Care Act is helping to slow the growth of health care costs. (Applause.) And the reforms I’m proposing go even further. We’ll reduce taxpayer subsidies to prescription drug companies and ask more from the wealthiest seniors. (Applause.) We’ll bring down costs by changing the way our government pays for Medicare, because our medical bills shouldn’t be based on the number of tests ordered or days spent in the hospital; they should be based on the quality of care that our seniors receive. (Applause.) And I am open to additional reforms from both parties, so long as they don’t violate the guarantee of a secure retirement. Our government shouldn’t make promises we cannot keep — but we must keep the promises we’ve already made. (Applause.)

And how will this be done? The system is a gigantic squid. Why now? What’s new?

To hit the rest of our deficit reduction target, we should do what leaders in both parties have already suggested, and save hundreds of billions of dollars by getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off and the well-connected. After all, why would we choose to make deeper cuts to education and Medicare just to protect special interest tax breaks? How is that fair? Why is it that deficit reduction is a big emergency justifying making cuts in Social Security benefits but not closing some loopholes? How does that promote growth? (Applause.)

In short, raise taxes.

The real deficit is $222 trillion. He never mentioned that. They never do.

Then he returned to that old favorite, a simplified tax code.

Now is our best chance for bipartisan, comprehensive tax reform that encourages job creation and helps bring down the deficit. (Applause.) We can get this done. The American people deserve a tax code that helps small businesses spend less time filling out complicated forms, and more time expanding and hiring — a tax code that ensures billionaires with high-powered accountants can’t work the system and pay a lower rate than their hardworking secretaries; a tax code that lowers incentives to move jobs overseas, and lowers tax rates for businesses and manufacturers that are creating jobs right here in the United States of America. That’s what tax reform can deliver. That’s what we can do together. (Applause.)

We have waited since 1913.

He called for bipartisanship. That means “do it my way.”

80 thoughts on “Obama: A Keynesian, Not a Communist

  1. I believe he is a Communist. Very little he says is true. His actions are totalitarian!

  2. Patriot-Research says:

    A Keynesian, Not a Communist is not true. I hold a PhD in Business/Economics and Obama views and actions are not Keynesian Economics they are clearly based the State Controlling everything and the people completely dependent on the State. This is a Communist approach to Government, PERIOD…!!! Know your topic before writing and article.

  3. traderpards says:

    Did you think he would come right out and shout "To each according to his needs, from each according to his ability?" What do you think would have happened had he done that. Good grief.

  4. Benton Bain says:

    Obama or what ever name he has used was born a Muslim Communist and raised as one!!!
    He belonged to the Communist party in Chicago.

  5. If Obama is getting the endorsement of the Communist Party, chances are that he's doing something that they like; ergo, Obama is a Communist.
    Keynesianism=preparation for Communism.
    Keynesianism never worked because it was never intended to work, it was only ever intended to drive us into bankruptcy so that the Communists could take over. In that regard, it is succeeding brilliantly.

  6. He is clearly a communist and far from being an economist of any sort. What he wants in the revenue-demand budget is enough monies to pay for those lavish vacations (more of those coming up soon) and gluttonous feasts he serves at the white house; he has no interest whatsoever in the needs of this country or of the people who LEGITIMATELY reside here. He has a prurient interest that he wants to fund via government and then push that agenda onto our children attending public schools–and with the help of the unions, he will probably get his way. I have absolutely NO respect for this imposter or the current presidency—he has soiled it all.

  7. bluesingincat says:

    Raised by communists, mentored by a communist, endorsed by the Communist Party USA. Why split hairs here?
    If it looks like a duck………………………..

  8. John Whittington says:

    People wrongly think of Sun Tzu as a politician. He was not! He was a Samarai and was speaking of war against enemies!
    You’ll find out whether or not Obama is a communist if he gets his way. 99% of the people will be dependant on the 1%!!!

  9. Thanks for straightening out this guy P-R. Anyone with a bit of insight can see that obongo is a petty shallow not very smart little queer mus foreign born piece of human garbage who is completely self-involved and is a depraved communist.

  10. Does this president ever tell the truth? I haVE NEVER seen a president to stand up and talk and knows he is telling lies and does not care what people think. He is one person who could pass a lie tetector test without any problems. His body would not give him away because it is use to not telling the truth. Any bills he wants to propose will not cost you one more dime but he has spent 58trillion dimes in the lastfour years.!!!

  11. I believe he is a mixture of several radical ideologies because of his background. Mentored by a Communist, Communist parents and Gparents, seeking out all the radical Professors in University, friends of different ideologies (always radical). All I know for sure is he is experimenting with the American Economy and is dumber than dirt. He is crafty and sly. Add that to a mammoth ego and his narcissism and he needs to be put down.
    I don't understand why America is so dumb in allowing radical Professors spread their ideologies in Universities? With the indoctrination already in the American schools the Universities just complete the job. We must take the Dept of Ed away from the Feds.

  12. Exactly. He may speak "Keynesian" (or is that "Kenyan"?), but he acts like a Communist, or any other totalitarian dictator. While I respect Mr. North's writings and viewpoints, he is way off base on this one.

  13. He basically has said that on more than one occasion. I believe re-distribution of wealth is the communist manifesto. Remember his comment to Joe, the plumber back in '08..

  14. You're right – Obama and his handlers are communist. America's industrial infrastructure was moved to communist China under the Bushes, Clinton, & now Obama for the final blow. The labels on just about everything we consume verify that fact – also autos – 75% foreign (China) – all we do is assemble. We're in the suicidal mode of selling Chinese goods to ourselves, producing near nothing of value, and depleting our wealth. Printing funny money & bonds devalues currency & bonds – most notable in collapsing SSI and all other so called secure pension funds.

    Keynes is a process of government saving in good times to increase general supply & spending in bad times to absorb excess supply. Communist professors have been spinning trash to a point where no one is left with a brain!

    The idiots in charge of government spend recklessly at all times – a carefully thought out plan of cataclysmic destruction!

  15. You will know him by his fruits. He is a communist.

  16. Erik Osbun says:

    Dear Gary North: You actually believed what Obama said? Never believe what a Communist tells you.

  17. Really like you're comment!! I was thinking the same thought HAS Obama ever told the truth about anything?

  18. tim meenan says:

    i still think he is a pinko commie !

  19. jimboy1353 says:

    Gary is wrong on this… Obama / Soetoro is a Communist.

  20. jimboy1353 says:

    Totally agree… A Communist. Where does Gary get that he isn't. Just can't agree with he is NOT a Communist.

  21. Joan Secrest says:

    If he were an Keynesian, he would not be piling up the debt. Keynse did not believe in long term debt at all.

  22. LOL.

    Study reveals facts don't matter to U.S. conservatives. Thanks for proving it.

  23. Barack Obama,Barack Sotoro,Barry Obama, Barry Sotoro,Barack Hussain Obama II. Will the real Obama please stand up? Shades of " 3 Faces of Eve " ! Does the President have 5 faces or more in the Prsonalities he portrays? People who lie as much as he does, USUALLY DO !!! The real birth certificate from Kenya, His college records ,His organizations joined and supported, His tax records,His real Social Security number ??? The first PHANTOM PRESIDENT !!!

  24. He failed to mention the issue of WHITE COLLAR CRIME and the CORRUPTION that has existed for the past 68 years that has caused this mess we are in and elected this IMPOSTER for a second term and wants to re-elect him for a 3rd and fourth term. Little do they know that what he really wants is to become the SUPREME RULER of the WORLD . His vacations paid for by the people shows a complete disrespect for the American People as if HE has already ascended to the throne ,with their approval.

  25. RUkidding me says:

    Are you kidding me? This is reason enough to Impeach! Why are we not going after it? Read our "Military Code of Justice"… Can not lie, deceive, misrepresent, ect etc. That is all he does. Wake up…could not watch the State of Union makes me sick. January 31, 2011 a recorded photo opp by Dr. James David Manning, Investigator and Prosecuter, retired military officer. Historical Trial of the Milinium commence date May 2010 Trial by jury found Obama guilty of 17 counts of fraud…. Found Columbia University guilty of lying… CIA Confirmed Obama did not attend Columbia University.


  26. Louis Wheeler says:

    Is Obama a Keynesian? Yes, but Keynes strictly talked about the economic issue of getting rid of 'the business cycle.' Most of Obama's plans go beyond economics.

    Obama is a Progressive; they want to create a heaven here on earth through governmental actions. This is why he promotes universal healthcare and opposes the 2nd amendment. Progressives see themselves as a reply to Communism, although they borrow many of its social goals.

  27. RUkidding me says:

    Tim Adams Clerk for Department of State Hawaii testified never had proof of birth certificate – no one could find it.
    . Neil Abrocombe… Where are the leaders to go after this?
    There is no one with guts… no balls- it is time to get Texas to lead. We have 535 idiots in Washington out for their
    own intertest. Time to get all of them out. The good ones need to go too. They have no guts. Can not close a deal.

  28. RUkiddingme says:

    If Heraldo can run, Hannity should too and Judge Jeanine is tough enough to go up against Hillary Clinton. Bill just told a Greek investor Hillary is running. Time is now to raise the funds. Lets get all the conservitive media anchors, authors, pros with the brains to run for office. They are smart enough, know how to do research on any topic, articulate… say it how it is.
    Let all the young journalists handle the news. They can take their spots and do a great job. This is a good start.

  29. RUkiddingme says:

    Aiding and abetting the enemy, No budget for 4 years…,Bengazi …,Fast & Furious…Supreme court found Obama's apointments unconstitutional…nothing was done? ignored… No one is doing anything about this.Absent from Bengazi…
    200 tanks plus jets to Muslim Brotherhood,Funding all these b.s. companies for propaganda against U.S. patriots…
    Brain washing cadets at West Point , Lies Lies Lies…FBI Expert Claims Obama Picks Muslim For CIA Chief
    One of the FBI’s former top experts on Islam has announced that President Obama’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia. As WND has reported, former FBI Islam expert John Guandolo has long warned that the federal government is being infiltrated by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

  30. RUkiddingme says:

    We need to put the brakes on this guy! No one can keep up with his agenda. The Senators that we listened to regarding Bengazi for months dropped the ball. I am tired of following the stories, new updates then it all disapears and we are onto the next 12 issues that add to his agenda. Are you not tired of this. Just recently, 2 people were beheaded and their hands taken off and buried. They found the guy who did it. There was no relation between the parties. The killer was an Islam extremist living in Florida. The media does not cover the story. Pre election Obama was traveling on route 95 south to Lynn University for the debate with Romney, a patrolman working the presidential motorcade was killed on the off ramp, not a word from Obama or his administration to the family of 4 who just lost their father. Shortly after, 4 people died in Bengazi… all of whom were not Black, Asian, Mexican or Keynan.

  31. Patriot-Research says:

    Does anyone wonder what really goes on behind the WH closed doors? One thing we know is that the Msulim Botherhood is allowed to rome the halls, and I wonder what other kinds of depraved things that may be going on? And on a different note, anyone that sends their kids to public schools to learn and be programmed in Oboozo's communist agenda should be held for child abuse. But most of the young parents today are as dumb-down as their children. Also stay away from floride, a Major University has release a study showing that Cities that put floride in there water have children with much lower IQ's. Floride destroys the dendrites (circuit connections/pathways between brain cells) and floride is the major cause of Alzheimer’s. That's why people even in thier 20's are start to show signs of this disease! Most of Europe removed floride from there water back 2008 for this very reason!

  32. He's a Communist that disdains his country, the culture and most of the people

  33. this man is a fake, phony, fraud.. training under Socialst teachings, what should we Xpect?
    Look @ all the investig on Cabinet app'ts…yet, where was mainstream media to vet HIM?
    All indications were visible to a knowlegeable voter in '08 but for some reaason, some people still believe in Sanny Claws…

    give-give-give—–to whatever cause U believe that will remove the scourge of a Marxist continuum of current venue.
    Thx for reading, thx for taking some action

    Letter from Kitau in Mombasa , Kenya ……SNOPES SAYS IT'S TRUE !

  35. Picture of actual birth certificate was included in the letter with his footprint but I am unable to get it to copy and paste to this website. The whole letter and additional testimony contains too many bits of information for most sites to accept. Certain email sites with unlimited email space will accept the entire letter with supporting information and pictures. I can't understand why more people haven't brought this forward ? I can't be the only one who received it as I received it from a navy buddy who I'm sure sent it to everyone on his list.

  36. I don't care what you call him , he (ODIMBA) is a dirty stinking NI- – ER ,, end of story !!!!!!!!!!

  37. call him what you want but he is a Liberal Communist Muslim. He is a true traitor to America . J just when will people see that.Hope it wont be to late.

  38. Now I'm being told that what I wrote must be approved by the site administrator before it well appear publicy. The administrator probably doesn't know a damn thing about what I wrote in the first place. At this rAte we can never win our freedom when the truth is hidden.~ Maynard Merrell

  39. Jesus is reported to have said that he would build his church on the basis of TRUTH because even the most evil and corrupt gates of Hell cound not PREVAIL against it.Most Christians expect Jesus to return and straighten out this mess and all the problems connected with it. It is way past the time for the People to DEMAND of their Representatives to be told the TRUTH about all the deceptions of the past for which they have been held slaves to the deception of the Government for the benefit and profit of a FEW. It also time that they demanded of their Religion that they be told the TRUTH about their Religion.

    There are NO aliens from outer space ! The Alien Autopsy was debunked years ago as being a film produced in England. It's purpose was to launch the SPACE program and keep the Army intact and provide jobs for the boys coming home after WWII. How many Trillions of the peoples' Future have been spent on Nuclear weapons,Jet Planes,ICBM's Space Stasions,missles,Tanks,and Drones and combat weapons to kill and maime our boys and others?

  40. There is no Devil according to Jesus ! He is reported to have said to the people that " Ye being evil how can you do good,If your son asks you for bread would you give him a stone ?" Men / Women are inherently EVIL as they are driven by LUST for the things they don't have instead of using the GIFTS that God gave them to create a better life for ALL and defeat the LUST in their hearts for the gifts of others given to them by a LOVING GOD. The GOLDEN RULE ! Treat others as you would have them treat you and there would be NO SIN !!! Have no unwanted children as you would not want to be born UNWANTED to be rejected and abused by ALL those who feel that you are somehow inferior to them because you do not have a mother and father who love you no matter how much you disrespect them and do things to make them hate you like so many spoiled BRATS.

  41. Obama's mentorFranklin Marshall Davis, was a communist; Obama's mother and her parents were communists .

  42. i agree w/Patriot-Research. he's a full-on commie and pretty much all-of-the-above under the banner of marxism. he does whatever works…for him and he has so much as said so. he's an appeaser, a poser w/disdain for anyone not like him, therefore a racist fomenting racism.

  43. I'm personally sick to death of politicsl corectness and waching our country die on the vine. This useless preident is a liar and complete failure. Our elected representatives appear to be a self serving group of incompetents. NO LEADERSHIP. Wasting tax payers dollars on an expanding welfare state and corrupting, or ignoring, our constitution has become the norm. The peoples voice falls on deaf ears.

    Tired of throwing money at foriegn countries that perpetuate an Idealogy that subverts Christianity and creates further chaos in the ever shrinking world. I doubt sending weapons of war and billions of dollars in aid to the muslim brotherhood is in our best interest. It's comming up tax time again. What if every American patriate decided not to exercise the priviledge of giving this government any more of our tax dollars to waste. We're paying for what? Blowing off steam cause I'm sick of watching the demise of , what was, the Greatest Country on earth.

    Bad things are happening, worse things are comming. We may survive, but not with those that represent us now. GOD bless America.

  44. Canadiancynic says:

    Obama needs the slush money h is corrupt cronies generate. He needs also the dictatorial bureaucrats and regulators that promulgate his power grab. His economically illiterate class warfare gets zero criticsm from his sympathetic media lemmings.Breaking the nation financially cedes him more crisis power and the coming resource boom allows him to claim sucess for his reign. This is , in fact, proto-fascism, as the brilliant Thomas Sowell has pointed out-no one is listening.

  45. RivahMitch says:

    The multto Musolini is a fascist and you're naive.

  46. scarletdove says:

    Sorry Mr. North, Obama is a communist!

  47. To say he is a Keynsian by focusing only on his economic plans, violates Sun Tzu's opening quote. It falsely identifies the enemy. Is he a communist? I'm not sure. BUT, he is far more than a Keynesian idiot! The police state that is rapidly taking over our country is NOT a reflection of Keynesian economics. Know your enemy – that means know ALL of your enemy, not just his economic stupidity

  48. Obama and Hillary are both students of Saul Alinsky. Alinsky often rebuked the communists for being too soft on how they handled issues. Never trust alinskyites. They have absolutely no ethics or morals. To them, the ends always justify the means and they are relentless. Just say NO to lefty-loosies !

  49. skip gilmore says:

    Well Gary,
    Looks like you bombed………….LOL !!!

  50. Libertylady says:

    I think you mean "their", as in possessive, not "there", as in location.

  51. You are absolutely correct, and I appreciate your comments. The next thing I would really appreciate is ACTION to end his being in the White House, he does not belong there!!!!!!!!!!

  52. The mulatto Hitler is a fascist, but don't get hung up on labels. However you define him, he a ratbag traitor. His libtard supporters often argue that he's done nothing that is an impeachable offense. Guess not, unless you think that perjury, election fraud, record falsification, and accessory to murder (remember Fast and Furious, weasels?) is an impeachable offense.

  53. AmericansRon2U says:

    Obama is a Muslim, communist homosexual non-citizen to be exact. This article is only scratching the surface of who "Bunker Barry" really is. In order to successfully implement a communist dictatorship over a nation, 3 things must be eliminated: God, guns and the middle class. Bunker Barry is working on all 3 simultaneously, folks…look around. The middle class is dying, they want our firearms and God was kicked out of the schools in 1962! Christians are being attacked by the ACLU (founded by 2 communists), Islam is being elevated in America as the religion of peace (while it's not even a religion at all…it's a fascist system of govt.) and Diane Feinstein wants every gun confiscated! If that doesn't define a communist agenda, I don't know what DOES. In fact, we are already living under a communist dictatorship…a lot of folks just don't know it yet. The separation of powers in DC is GONE and most of the U.S. Constitution is on life support.

  54. A Communist, as we know the term today, will FORCE his will on the people by any means he can and take away their rights as humans all the while believing he knows best. He has no shame while reaping the rewards personally. Now I ask you, who did I just describe?

  55. God forbid Hillary run = she will be worse than what we have..she was with the UN to get rid of our guns..heaven only knows what else she has up her sleeve..and after the Benghazi episode..I would not trust her with my cat! they all lie and her remark will stay with me forever and I will never vote for her..we need to get all the slime balls out of Washington – term limits and if they do not perform to our liking –out they go..we have to take charge..

  56. This is where you are wrong about him not being a communist. He does not believe in free enterprise. His idea of a market is one controlled by the government.

  57. Since Obama is such a believer in equality, why doesn't he give more of his wealth away to those less fortunate; slow down on his vacations and golf games and try to live more frugally on the American tax payers money!

  58. Thank you. The writer of this article is naive and uneducated. You hit the nail on the head. Difficult to advance any idea other than the fact that he is a communist. Thank you again for clearing the air so that others know the difference.

  59. Duh!!!–

  60. I believe he's more Fascist than Communist…consider his desire to completely dominate and climb in bed with certain industries.

  61. …And let's add Lt. Col. Allen West to the list. Geraldo vascillates too much and he's not conservative enough.

  62. Have you ever known a president to bitch and moan as much as Obama??

  63. Quis Percusit says:

    It doesn't really matter what you call Obamafraud he is still a New World Order Lackey and a minion of Islam who seeks only his own edification and glorification for going down in History as the Man who Single handedly destroyed a once great nation with nothing but lies, deciet, a phoney Birth certificate, a false Draft card and a stolen social security number.

  64. RivahMitch says:

    The Kenyan fascist is just that… a fascist. It wants total control over every aspect of society. It took control of medical care in the country so it can decide who lives and dies. That's why it wants everyone disarmed… so that it can just blatantly steal whatever it wants. Better to die on your feet than live on your knees. Semper Fi! KTNN!!

  65. You are very wrong Mr. North. Obama is using Keynesian economics to ease a gullible public into accepting a totalitarian state. Even Keynes would not abide what Obama is doing.

  66. Albert Maslar says:

    With all due respect to the president, he does not have a written plan as I have a 5-page 84-point plan "To Fix It All" anchored by 3% National Sales Tax & max 20% personal & business tax, with true Universal Medicare.
    Effective tax rate on Taxable Income of $100,000 2.74%
    Effective tax rate on Taxable Income of $1 Million 7.47%
    Effective tax rate on Taxable Income of $1 Billion 19.88%
    That will take the fangs out of K Street. This plan turns Obama's "Spread the wealth around" into "Spread the burden." Featuring one income tax table for personal, business, and all entities at a graduated max of 20%. PLUS a true universal healthcare plan that automatically applies to every legal resident of the US. PLUS a workable solution to illegal immigration and steps to correct the abuses, reduction of deficit and debt, and solutions for other current problems.
    Request a copy of the plan "To Fix It All" from Albert Maslar CPA (Retired) albertmaslar2@gmail.com

  67. If he's a communist, how do you explain record business profits in the last four years? Idiots.

  68. Sorry GGonGG, that was supposed to be in reply to scarletdove. Oh well 😛

  69. Patriot-Research, you obviously have not done your research. Please explain the record business profits in the last four years, as well as record-high Dow Jones, if Obama is a Communist.


  70. Why not point out some of these lies? Prove yourself instead of ranting like an idiot.

  71. Erik Osbun says:

    Not true, Obama is a Communist.

  72. If the PRESIDENT takes money from those that produce to give to those that could but won’t, the truth is very simple. He is very deliberately enriching HIS political power base. Where is the difference, the electorate chose to reelect him! Or for that matter; do we really care what pseudo-intellectuals choose to call him by tacking a descriptive political prefix to the typical “ism” suffix. Either this president relinquishes power at the end of his term or he makes the typical totalitarian grab for power. The electorate already made their choice. Obama care, Second Amendment rights and legalizing Illegals are but the symptoms. The truth is we have a new and different electorate than our grandparents. They chose to come to this Country to work and improve their lives and give their children a better one than they.
    When Mao called us a “paper tiger” he was only three generations away from the truth. Thank you LBJ, Bill and now Barrack Hussein Obama.

    He is behaving just as any wise communist would when he is constrained by courts, congress, and laws as BO is.
    Suggesting BO is a Keynesian because he can't do all he wishes is like suggest the crocodile at the the zoo is friendly because he hasn't been able to kill anyone lately.

    What would have happened at that moment? The applause would have gone on for five minutes. What a great saying. Do you think even anyone or more than a few in that audience would have known the source? Not even the Republicans. We are being "led" by an extremely ignorant bunch of pols, not a new thing, just moreso these days. After all, most went to public schools…..as did I…..but I was asked at age 14 to re-evaluate my views since I would soon be facing becoming a soldier in a war in a land that had nothing to do with anything but enriching the military/industrial complex, bankers, wall-streeters and the ultra-rich alike along with "go along to get along" politicians. I rejected the cool-aid. But how many didn't back then or since? Not a good sign.

  75. That doesn't negate the fact that his MOTHER was an American citizen. You are considered an AMERICAN CITIZEN if a parent is an American citizen. I don't like it any better than anyone else here does, but Obama IS considered an American citizen.

    who is the idiot Shane?

  77. scarletdove says:

    He is a communist!

  78. Appreciate the points you're making, Gary, however Obama demonstrates himself with what he does, not what he says. He is a communist through and through.

  79. he's no president.

  80. I savor, cause I discovered just what I used to be looking for.

    You’ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye
