AMAC to President Obama: ‘Get a Grip on Spending’

dan-weberGallup reports U.S. unemployment levels rose to 8.7% in August, up from 7.8% in July –

 BOHEMIA, NY, Sept 6 – “The Obama administration needs to get a grip on spending before we go bankrupt,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“The National Debt will top $17 trillion in a few weeks, the economy is limping along, we’re becoming a nation of part-time workers and at least one well-known financial analyst predicts a new recession before President Obama is through with us,” he said.

Weber pointed out that while the president blames the legacies of past presidents for the skyrocketing debt, an analysis of federal spending patterns shows that he is the biggest spender.

“Even Mr. Obama’s big boosters are finally beginning to see the light.  When Democratic Senator Max Baucus warned that Obamacare was a train wreck waiting to happen, the president simply ignored him.  Meanwhile, ultra-liberal political commentator, Chris Mathews, recently admitted that the president lacks ‘leadership skills.’  In a president it’s a deficiency that can spell disaster for the nation.”

The AMAC chief warned that while older Americans are most at risk, the nation as a whole will suffer if the administration’s spending patterns are not soon checked.  “It’s one thing to follow an agenda aimed at redistributing the wealth, it’s another to risk the livelihoods of our children and grandchildren.”

In just his first term, President Obama added nearly $6 trillion to the national debt, Weber noted.  “Spending in his new second term can easily match that amount and, perhaps, even substantially surpass it.”

As for job, the great majority of new jobs currently being created in the U.S. are part-time.  As James Hoffa put it, Obamacare will “destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”  In fact, Weber pointed out, U.S. unemployment levels, as reported by Gallup this week, stood at 8.7% in August, up from 7.8% in July.

Recently, he added, the well-known Wall Street analyst, Charles Nenner, warned his clients that the nation is poised for a new recession.  “It’s very scary because we didn’t have a lot of growth and when this economic expansion is over, we’re going to be in trouble.  It’s going to be bad,” Nenner said.

There’s a backlash brewing in Congress over the president’s proclivity to “borrow and spend,” Weber concluded, adding that “AMAC stands wholeheartedly behind that movement and urges members and their families and friends to support it by urging their own lawmakers, whichever side of the aisle they sit, to join the battle.”

The quote “A house divided against itself cannot stand” is so true, and the comments on this – and so many other – sites show the deep divisions among the people in this country. Instead of pulling together to improve this “united” nation we’re supposed to be, we carp about the things that divide us! There’s no equality, when we refuse to look at each other as equals. I want to vomit when I hear someone identify and define themselves or someone else by their race, color,65 political party, sexual preference (good grief! why should we be forced to be privy to that aspect of someone’s personal life, anyway?) their social or economic level (“class?? PLEASE!!!), or anything else that sets them above – or separates them from – their fellows. The racist designation “African American” makes me cringe; unless you have duel citizenship, you are either an American or… Read more »

Very good article, i could not agree with you more and what is really disturbing is that obama was reelected even though our economy has been doing so poorly ever since he has been in office and has added trillions of dollars to the deficit. I really believe that America is doomed when i corrupt,immoral, lier like obama is reelected.

I have been paying attention to politics and policies since right before this last election. I’ve been watching and listening to the US Senate and House debates, public and policy programs. I’m well tuned in to what is being forced upon us. I observe the politicians and how they respond to direct questions. It’s getting harder to tell who the good guys are. This recent Syrian Disaster in the making is anything but legitimate. It plays many roles. First, what a great way to get the attention off of all the White House Scandals. Too many to name. Let’s also take into account the President’s close ties and relationships with questionable connection to Muslim organizations with anti American views. His closest associate’s have ties to radical extremist. This makes me question his true motivations. He seems to care nothing about this countries future or anyone else’s. If anyone read “Obama’s… Read more »

When OBAMA was elected the first time , although I was diametrically opposed to him from the get – go , I truly had HOPE that he would rise above his NEGRO blood and not come to rule with such strong prejudice against the AMERICAN DREAM that the white race built with blood , sweat, and tears . And yes the BLACK race was there working along side , but so was NATIVE AMERICANS , and many other ethnic groups from around the world . And yes for about 33% of our nations history we ruled the NEGROS and a few odd others as slaves to white masters ( and even a few BLACK masters ) I see quoted often that the current ratio of NEGRO population is about 13% of our total population , yet For the last TWO THIRDS of our history we have systematically wrote our laws… Read more »

Term limits for all. Obama came into office obviously inept and incompetent. We can now add corrupt and dishonest.

June Gregorek

Term limits are necessary for every elected position, everywhere.

I think what we need as our representatives are successful business people, and housewives, and/or husbands that can successfully manage their families finances. I believe they would do a much better job with our countries finances as well.

Arthur

It doesn’t matter who is in the White House, or Congress, or on the Supreme Court. We are living under a de-facto government controlled by a foreign oligarchy better known as the Federal Reserve. Until the people of this country realize they have been enslaved and the United States of America no longer exists, nothing will ever change. Ignorance and freedom never have and never will co-exist.

Our US politicians are acting more like the Imperialists Japanese and Nazi Germany S’S of WWII dictators.
Syria shall do as we dictate or we’ll bomb the hell out of you, they are not attacking us, real bright idea huh folks?
We need a regime change and strict laws with strict term limits of 3 years across the board stopping career politicians power grab enslavements. Why do our politicians fear Obama???

1. Obama is a Muslim Socialist
2. Obama is not a US citizen.
3. Obama is a member of the Muslim brotherhood.
4. Obama is making America pay him and his family reparations for his and Michele’s twisted mind set to their so called grandioso and false racial propaganda injustice via lavish vacations, and trips, etc, etc costing US citizens multiple millions of tax dollars. Obama’s prejudice and ignorance will cause great harm to our nation, he must be impeached.

Of course we didn’t vote for Obama but we did vote for both Bushes and still love them. Not a rep or dem but we are AMERICANS. We vote for who we think is in the position to do the best job for our country. We are praying for some of the ones in the LIMELIGHT now to do what they should do to save our country, Under GOD as it was founded. WE have nothing against those who want to believe in another God…JUST DON’T TREAD ON MY RIGHTS TO WORSHIP OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST. We are know there are good people in every nation and those who speak different tounges. We have tolerance for others and want tolerance for those of us who believe in Christ. This President does NOT believe in the one TRUE AND LIVING GOD. It’s been proved over and over. Oh for a God… Read more »

If you voted to put this A-hole back in office for four more, or you did not bother to vote do not complain….

It’s just a ploy to bankrupct the country that will lead to an OVERTHROW of America. With all the illegal immigrants that he is cuddling up to, it will be easy! What is Congress waiting for – Impeach Him NOW!
After all, we DON’T HAVE A SPENDING PROBLEM! He thinks because he says it, it is true! HA!

Nona Demetre

Obama has exempted Congress, the IRS, and federal employees from Obamacare. Since federal employees are 50% of the jobholders, add Congress,, the IRS, illegals, and unemployed, whose going to pay for it?.

Gary Adams

This country is already bankrupt. See HJR 192 gold confiscation and new definition of legal money and bankruptcy however with the “Fed’ given the power to print money and determine the value there of there is no chance of going bankrupt unless you consider the value of the dollar at .o1 cent to the ten dollars bankrupt.

Dick R

He and the rest of the trough feeders are spending because they were elected to spend. Proof that people who work for a living are now out numbered by those who vote for a living!!

john canfield

It is my opinion that our goverment ( congress and the leadership in the capital ) have put their self intrest before the good of our Country ! This self intrest allows / causes , millions of American Citizens their jobs. One way they ( congress and the leadership )do this is their inaction to enforce current immigration law’s. Why ? I see two major reasons. 1. Cheap Labor = profit 2. Votes ( as the Illegals are assimilated into our country by making them legal’s ) . Illegal voting is another topic. Illegal voting can be simply addressed at the Federal Goverment level by simply using the Social Security System ! How ? Require all Social Security Cards to be Re-issued with the following eletronic information on them. 1, The Social Security Number followed by an eletronic code designating that the holder of the card is / is not… Read more »

It is evident without a doubt that this Administration is totally out of control – They don’t have any respect for the hard working tax paying citizens or the Constitution of the United States – All they care about is themselves and those who are here illegally – Maybe their Motto should be “What can I get for me” – Instead of “In God we Trust” – In addition we not them, will soon be stuck with the wonderful egotistical creation called “Obama Care”, due to them being made exempt by the President, to the Train Wreck as it has been called – Now all of a sudden he wants Congress to approve our involvement in Syria after he drew the line – He just wants someone else to take the blame as usual – He has never taken the blame for anything that has happened during any of his… Read more »

We can sent a message by storming Washington DC just like the French did it when they stormed the Bastille in the 1790’s

Our currently elected officials no longer represent the legal citizens of the United States. Their primary interest seems to be in perpetuating their position in office. I’m ready to do something I never thought I would…….. simply vote against whoever is presently in any office at every election over the next 3 years. It’s time to totally clean house and start afresh. The newly elected officials would take office knowing that America is fed up with politics as usual and are ready and willing to eliminate anyone who doesn’t vote FOR the people and BY the people.

Thelma Boyle

This is not something that has happened over night it has been going on along time ,too long .
Regan tried to tell the people .People close their ears to only what they want to hear.
We needed to clean house in Washington long time ago.We need to get rid of both parties.
Lets face it this is the devil world getting more so every day.
We have had so many men and women killed for political reasons.Yes! that is correct political reason.
We are losing our freedom to choose every day. Lets open our eyes look around you.
It is not money but the love of money that will destroy us.
