Spend Money We Don’t Have for Votes


Well, I got my 16th email from Obama and his peeps in the last few days. Some come from the White House, some from his non-profit, non-partisan (I know, it’s a joke, right?) Organizing for Action, funded by his cronies in big corporations for whom he will return the favors.

This one I posted below mentions a veteran, whom he all of a sudden cares about, who is getting the GI bill and a VA home loan, which they have ALWAYS gotten and it’s no thanks to Obama.

Someone wants the minimum wage to go up. Of course we all want people to make more money but this will cost jobs. Employers will cut back. Even liberal economists say it costs jobs. Get real folks.

Marxists and Democratic Socialists love social justice and their ideology includes giving everyone government-controlled salaries.

Then there is the humorous one about pre-school for all. Where do these people, if they actually exist, think that kind of money is going to come from? The cost will be a minimum of $10,000 per child in federal funds not counting the state and local funds that would be required.

The only thing left out was the $3000 Obama plans in a big giveaway to home mortgage holders. Where is that money going to come from?

The biggest joke of all – they’re crunching the numbers!

Oh, and by the way, he no more cares to hear about your voices than he cares about the men of Benghazi. He’s golfing on vacation and that is what he cares about.

Here is the letter I was talking about:


Hello —

On Tuesday, President Obama delivered his State of the Union Address. He was talking to Congress, but there’s someone he especially wanted to speak to:


That’s why we created Citizen Response — a new tool that lets you to tell President Obama and his advisers what you thought of his plan to create jobs and build a strong middle class.

In fact, Americans from all over the country have given us their responses. They sat down with President Obama’s speech, read through it line by line, and highlighted the ideas that resonated with them. People like you are telling us why the President’s proposals matter to their communities.

It’s an incredible thing. And you should be part of it.

All you need to do is visit WhiteHouse.gov/SOTU to get started.

The responses we’ve already seen are powerful stuff.

We heard from a veteran named Jason, who said, “I went to college using the GI Bill and was able to buy a home using the VA Home Loan. Please continue to give veterans the benefits they deserve and give them more help for transitioning out of the military back into civilian life.”

We heard from a guy named Matt, who told us that he liked what he heard about the minimum wage. “The only way we can bring this country and this economy back to being ‘great’ again,” he said, “is if we can have a more rational benchmark for pay.”

Others have said that they support President Obama’s call for high-quality preschool for every child. Others have said that it’s time for a vote to help reduce gun violence.

This week, the President is on the road talking with people across the country about the State of the Union, but let me tell you what we’re doing with stories like yours.

We’re crunching the numbers, compiling your feedback, and putting a presentation together to update senior White House staff.

And soon, we’re going to share your stories with President Obama so that he has a chance to hear your voices for himself.

So make sure you watch Tuesday’s enhanced State of the Union and give us your Citizen Response. You have no idea how important it is:



David Simas
Deputy Senior Advisor
The White House
