In years of failed budget talks, Obama has threatened to cut military, Social Security, border control, and disability payments. His "sequester" furloughed air traffic controllers, causing flight delays and reducing safety.
But he has never said that he would stop payments to illegal aliens, eliminate the "Obamaphone" program (now $2.2 billion/year), fire any of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he added, or reduce his family's vacations ($20 million so far). He has also not threatened the food stamp program, foreign aid, or the pay or pensions of congressmen or himself.
While many of us have cut expenses and gone without vacations in this recession, the Obamas are living the high life with our money. People who make bad decisions are rewarded by having their mortgages paid and their families' food and medical expenses covered by the government — and become the Democrat voter base. Unfortunately, as the late Margaret Thatcher noted, "There is no such thing as public money. There is only taxpayer money." Yet government treats our hard-earned money as a never-ending source for handouts.
Now our government wants to legalize illegal immigrants, proven law-breakers. Businesses want their cheap labor; Democrats want their votes. If it happens, liberals will be in power for decades. We tried amnesty once, and all we got were more illegals.
If you believe people should provide for themselves and government should be limited to constitutional principles, you'd better start becoming politically active. If you wait, it may be too late.
