Government by Gimmickry
Yesterday the President made another campaign stop disguised as a policy speech to tout his so-called “Buffett Rule”. This ridiculous proposal is just the latest policy ploy the President has rolled out.
President Obama has attempted to conceal the size of the deficit he’s saddling us with by counting the decreasing costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as savings. He’s tried to cover the cost of Obamacare by using a rationing board to rip off doctors and patients. After he blocked the Keystone Pipeline he backed down and agreed to build a part of it that wasn’t even connected to an oilfield. He’s invested billions of your money in failed green energy schemes.
The “Buffett Rule” is just another gimmick. It’s an excuse to raise taxes while doing nothing to get spending under control.
This “governing-by-gimmickry” has got to stop. I’m in Washington to fight for real solutions to our nation’s big problems, and with your support, I’ll keep up the fight as long as it takes.
