OBAMA'S CLASS WARFARE: PROTECTS POLITICIANS AND BUREAUCRATS WHILE CITIZENS TWIST IN THE WIND TO PAY BLOATED SALARIES!

In a time of fiscal crisis, President Barack Obama continues to create a divide between those that serve us as politicians and government staff and those in the private sector who must suffer additional confiscation of their hard-earned wages in order to support a protected political class that appears to be immune from the employment catastrophe that has been brought upon the United States by corrupt politicians and their special interest friends.

It appears that Congress no longer is in charge of our spending …

Bottom line …

In a time of fiscal emergency, when the size of government and additional spending should be curtailed, we find the Obama Administration handing out raises to the politicians who did nothing but campaign during the last two years. Shirking their duties. And, most importantly, engaging in criminal activities which saw the looting of the United States Treasury on behalf of the special interests. There should be no executive salary increases, there should be demotions and salary penalties.

As we approach the so-called fiscal cliff … this is what Barack Obama and his fellow travelers think of the Citizens of the United States.
