In February 2009, on the NBC Today show, referring to economic recovery, Obama said, "If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition." But in September 2012, Obama claimed that he always said it would take more time to fix the economy. There is a word for what Obama did: equivocation.
So, with the economy in shambles, with Obama's economic failure, what does he do? He Increases government dependency and buys more votes.
So, yes, DLPs, via Obama, bought enough votes to win the 2012 election. But at what cost? Families in Ohio, a swing state that Obama won, will see a reduction in food stamps benefits, starting in January 2013. It's true that the Republican- controlled House of Representatives voted in May 2012 to reduce expenditures on food stamps, federal workers' benefits, and other domestic programs in order to avoid reductions in defense spending due to sequestration. But I have always said that having no country or a way to defend it because of give away programs is, at best, senseless.
And we are seeing many employers, such as Papa John's, reduce employees and employee hours due to the ObamaCare mandate, er, tax, er, mandate. But I look any day now for a Papa John's competitor that will provide healthcare benefits to vast numbers of its employees. And I look for DLPs to found companies to fix the economy.
OK, DLPs, y'all won. Now it's time to put your money where your mouth is. Or is buying votes easier?
But that's just my opinion.
