President’s budget proposal faces new criticism

April 2, 2009 by  

President's budget proposal faces new criticismAmerican Issues Project (AIP) has added its voice to the growing chorus of criticism against President Obama’s proposed new budget.

The organization, which represents a coalition of conservative activists, is launching a telephone campaign against the proposal and the wasteful spending trend it claims characterizes the new Congress.

"Just when you think they’ve done their worst, Congress and [the] administration continue to amass debt beyond our control," says Ed Martin, president of AIP.

"President Obama has already spent more than [any] other president before him, [and his] is budget is just the latest move to weaken the American economy and the American entrepreneurial drive," he adds.

The phone calls will be made in many states including Colorado, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and urge people to oppose the proposal. The program will also give citizens the option to transfer directly to their senators and congressmen to voice their concern.

In recent weeks, many organizations spoke against Obama’s spending plans. For example, the Republican National Committee blasted the administration’s $3.6 trillion budget proposal as too lavish and based on unrealistic economic expectations.

    I see these so called sites and the disclaimer…Language is so limited that for you to edit out our words you do not like is ludicrous and is out and out CENSORSHIP and is against the Constitution and the first Amendent, and our The American way. Words are used for a purpose –Grow up sticks and stones etc etc

    We have to put a stop to this dorks spending spree

    • LMF

      I agree.

  • Caron Yelsma

    I have phoned my representatives on both state and local issues, but haven’t had assurance that it is doing any good. I have emailed and faxed. I know people are concerned, but the liberals just say “It’ll be okay. He’s doing what needs to be done and we just have to be patient.” Conservatives say,”I know how you feel. I feel that way, too. But what can you or I do?”

    Even those who operate in political circles don’t do more than talk. There are good plans out their by good organizations and leaders, but it all comes to nothing. Newt’s Solutions are excellent, but ignored. Heritage has great solutions. Judicial Watch is out there doing their thing as well as can be expeced in this political climate. The Repubs got together a much superior budget than the one that was passed. We aren’t getting anywhere. The radicals have their plans and are ramming them through lickety split so we can’t find time to mobilize. The tea parties aren’t for another week, and few know what to do at a tea party or what they’ll do when they get there. “Will I even find a parking place?”

    The biggest stimulant right now seems to be Glenn Beck…and the radicals are really going to try to silence him with gusto and speed. They will attempt to ridicule him like they try do to my Rush! This lady is proud of Rush. I’m proud of Glenn. I’m proud of Hannity. I’m proud of all the bloggers and commenters that don’t use profanity and attempt to come on with respect and show a bit of intellect just spiced with a bit of passion.

    Now what?

    • Pam

      I dido your comments, you are so right and I am so grateful for people who get involved. I do as you, write and call all the time. I think if you just sit back and complain, that does nothing. Glenn Beck is so right to bring information to us, Freedom of Speech. Mitt Romney hit the nail on the head, saying Obama needs to quit Campaning and work and more work. I have never seen a President so much on TV, which makes me think when does he work. The White House is in Washington DC, I thought. We are in so much trouble in our Country and yet we are giving money to other Countries, why not start here first.
      People need to get involved, lets not let Congress and Senate to have forever terms, we need limited terms, some fresh thinking.

    • LMF

      Bravo, I love them too. They tell the truth.

  • John

    These people are way out of control and completely out of touch with their constituents. I write to all 3 of mine several times a week. Now I realize they are not going to always vote they way I would. But when I read poll after poll and blogs that clearly show I am not alone in my point of view and yet Congress still votes for these spending bills it’s an outrage!

    • Howard

      Explain to them that we sent them to DC to perform for those who sent them. It is not impossible to bring them back home and send someone who has the guts to stand up fot those who sent them. Tell them you are tired of receiving their mail that really says nothing and has no passion in building a wall againt the tyrants that are in control not. If you aint for me, then you are against me….. Come home. we have someone else in mind for your office in DC….

      • John

        Actually Howard I have done that also. I have told all of my so called Rep’s that I hope that all 3 of them are voted out in the 2010 election! Furthermore I have signed the petition on the website impeachnancypelosi.com. And I can’t wait till they get totalrecall2009.com up and running so maybe we get rid of Schwarzenegger too!

        • http://www.nosmog.com Robert Sewell Sr

          I agree fully with you, John.
          We will and we shall remove most of them Liberals Senators & House Reps.too. Obama and his gangsters, Cabinets, Supreme Court Judges Liberals, Pentagon Brass Officers, Home Security Officers, Federal Election Commissioners, and some other Governments Officers.
          We must and we will remove them very soon and NO DOUBTS!. There are over 30,000,000 American and Patriots and Military Citizens are angry and ready to go there if Obama and others don’t leave America Country immediately and warning them. We are very serious of them !!.

  • http://personalliberty.com D. Vernon, NC

    separately we fail to make an impact on the votes by our senators and congress. we have to join together to make an statement they will be forced to listen to. I live in a state that splits their vote effectively canceling each other out. The Dems need to be persuaded to change thie stance on the issues. the midterm elections will decide what will happen over the remainder of Obama’s time in office. We and I say we meaning conservatives , need to convince Republicans to become more conservative. We collectively needt o voice our opinions and not stand idiley by. It is time to speak out.

  • Aache Carter

    Americans –WAKE UP…WAKE UP…WAKE UP…Americans are totally asleep at the wheel when it comes to Obama’s ‘WACKO’ new policies and his a hidden agenda to drive us American to a third world-Banana Republic society. This Dweeb is, totally, Anti American (Dictator???) …his Cap ‘N Trade (TAX) will double our monthly home Energy Bill and push Gas prices to over $4.00 per Gallon. At that rate Americans living standards will drop 30%…Unacceptable. Call your State and Fed Reps’ and tell them NO…NO…NO on new energy taxes or they will be out of a job… real quick.
    WE THE PEOPLE …are the government not the ‘political elite’. If B. Obama, B. Frank, N. Pelosi, H. Reid and other lefties weren’t so dangerous they would be a gaggle of Clowns!

    • LMF

      Right on , they need to go.

    • http://www.nosmog.com Robert Sewell Sr

      I agreed, we shall sweeping them off their jobs immediately very soon, they scrooges better listening us, we mean it business also over 30,000,000 will come to D.C. and after them, no jokes from any military service people and militants and Patriots. Hope fully they will leaving D.C. by their vacation time in August and never come back to D.C. again !!. WAKE UP WAKE UP AMERICAN CITIZENS, WE AND UNCLE SAM NEED YOU TO FIGHT AGAINST THE DIRTY BUSINESS GOVERNMENT HAVE DONE TO ALL OF US LATELY. WE NEED TO RESTORE JOBS FOR ALL AMERICAN FAMILIES NEEDS JOBS TO MAKE LIVINGS !!. WAKE UP AMERICA GO INSIDE ALL GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS AND REMOVE THOSE OFFICERS OUT EVEN TO WHITE HOUSE REMOVE OBAMA AND HIS FAMILY AND HIS GANGSTERS IMMEDIATELY AND GET OUR GOD’S PROMISED LANDS BACK TO ALL OF US AMERICAN CITIZENS !!!. NO MORE PITY TO THOSE CROOKS GOVERNMENT AT ALL !!.

    We are TEA’d (taxed enough already). How else will this massive debt be serviced (it will never be paid off). I also contact my senators and representatives… to no avail. They aren’t listening to anyone with whom they disagree-or Obama disagrees. Until they can shut us up, they’ve apparently decided to just ignore us. I will be going to a tea party on 4/15. I mailed tea bags to all of them with a note to stop the spending. I sent an email to my one senator who voted against the cap and trade scam…but he’s voted FOR all the other financial fiascos that have been proposed…though I contacted him to oppose that vote each time.

    It’s a loooong way to 2010 at the rate the socialists are destroying our economy. We have to make as much noise as we can as often as we can. We have to stop being so damn polite. It’s long past time to be righteously angry—out loud.

    We are making small differences. Cap and trade is off the table for now. More dems are abandoning Pelosi and Reid on other issues. Keep being noisy, people. Go to a tea party near you on tax day and meet others who think as we do. Individually, we can do little. Together, we can slow down the socialist machine and hopefully buy time till 2010.

    Plan now to work FOR the conservative candidate in your area who will be running then.

    And pray.

      The only way we can get our country back into the hands of the people is to vote each and every member of Congress out, being very careful in choosing replacements. I mean The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, no matter thier party. Remember, when Congress approved the first 700 billion for Paulson, they tacked on 150 billion as payment for their votes. The news media has forgotten this fact. I haven’t. We have to clean house. It’s that simple.

  • http://personallibertydigest steve

    to all of you who made comments on here, way to go. Now this is what I really call the true American spirit. Keep it up. I am with all of you on how you feel about the out of control government spending. Now lets keep this up and made enough noise until something is done about this spending. God bless America

  • Bob Livingston

    In the first place there is no such thing as a federal budget. This is the epitome of brainwash. A fiat regime implies quicksand economics. It is an accounting myth and all the Obama talk about budget and congressional debate over budget is to throw sand in our eyes.

  • Doug

    I am very worried about our country; this show and tell president is a puppet who is not really accountable and seems to be rampant in making his decisions, as if he has been in the know from the beginning. Has anything he has done so far, actually worked?

  • Jim Crawford

    Refering to Obama’s outrageous policies, many people are asking “When will this end?” I have an answer for them. It will end when YOU stop voting for people who do not want to be limited by the authority of the Constitution!

    There are very few politicians who will fight the unconstitutional statist trend we have been in for many years. You might expect that the Republicans would, but at best they usually settle for just trying to slow it down. (Ron Paul is the only exception to this that I know of.)

    But the real choice is NOT Democrat or Republican. It is Statist or Libertarian!

    A vote for a Democrat or Republican (i.e a Republicrat) is a vote for the status quo. A vote for a Libertarian is a vote for a Constitutional government. It’s a vote for a balanced budget, a vote against deficit spending, a vote for a sound currency, a vote for limiting government to the powers given to it by the Constitution, a vote for letting failed businesses fail without forcing taxpayers to bail them out, and it’s a vote for the freedom our founding fathers gave us.

    It’s possible that Republicans can turn this around, but NOT by voting Republicrat! If you vote Republicrat, ONLY YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE VOTING FOR. If you vote Libertarian, EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE VOTING FOR! And that “everyone” includes politicians in office.

    Would you like to get a strong message to Obama and company that you don’t like what they are doing? Do you want to tell Nancy Pelosi what you really think of her politics? Only a Libertarian vote will do it! I mean ONLY a LIBERTARIAN VOTE will do it.

    If you continue to vote for “the lesser of the evils,” you will get what you always got,

    Politicians have the markets and the economy so screwed up now that we may be on the verge of an “Atlas Shrugged” scenario. Of course this is all blamed on a “failure” of the markets.
