How much do the Obama’s cost taxpayers?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Another vacation coming up this Christmas for the Obama’s will cost American taxpayers over $4 million dollars. So how much is it costing us to support the first family? The number is much worse than you could possibly imagine.

“Every year (taxpayers in England) have to spend $57.8 million for the first family of Great Britain to make sure that everything’s maintained and everything is taken care of and their security and everything else, $57.8 million. And the people in England are upset about it,” Glenn explained this morning.

“How much did we pay our royal family? How much did it take to maintain our royal family, the Obamas, just last year? Now, this is really interesting, especially as we come up for another vacation for the Obamas. This one is going to cost us $4 million. This vacation in Hawaii for Christmas is going to cost you $4 million. How much did we spend last year? Remember, the royal family cost $57.8 million. Would you be stunned if I told you it was $50 million? Would you be ‑‑ would you be bowled over if it was $100 million? How much do we spend? The total last year, a little higher than $57.8 million.”

So what was it? $60 million? No. $100 million? Nope. $250 million? Not even close.

The answer: $1.4 billion

“Look, I have no problem, no problem with the president of the United States taking a vacation. I’ve never had a problem with it. I’ve never had a problem with the president going on vacation when it was Bill Clinton, when it was George W. Bush or even Obama. There is an extraordinary number of vacation and golf days in this man’s schedule and an extraordinary number of campaign days in this man’s schedule, but I have no problem with him taking a vacation. But a $4 million vacation is a little over the top. And that’s just this vacation,” Glenn said.

“Again, perspective. As we were sitting in the bus and we heard about a $4 million, I said to Pat, I wonder how much they spend on the royal family. How much do they spend on the royal family compared to how much we spend on the Obama vacations and the Obama houses? And we got that number and it came from a book that is now, you know, the rage over in England. Of course we’re not saying anything about it here. It’s now the rage over in England. It’s more than 20 times.”

    $1.4 Billion on the Obama’s last year alone? 

    I guess we have our new god-king over the land spending himself silly along with all of his aristocratic communist allies.

    So how long until we are ordered at gunpoint to bow and worship the god-king of the left in the White House, or be put to death? How long until it comes?

    The Obama worshipers do not care what it costs. Most feel the family deserves whatever they want in return for long past injustices done to blacks.
    American voters recently proved they want a Socialist/Marxist form of government and Obama is just the guy to see that they get it.  The “free stuff” crowd will rule until either the money runs out or the “worker bees” fight back. It’s all right out of theAlinski agenda of crashing the economic system and replacing it in their image.  Obama is a master of this game. When the dust clears there may not be much left  to rebuild anything !

    Remember socialism is for sociaists not the people it professes to help.  Obama has never worked a day in his life and with your money to spend at will….why would he?

  • BentGhazi

    Why do the Obama’s get this kind of expense account? Do they ever spend any of the salary that Barack is paid for any personal expenses? This is one area where the spending could be eliminated, and it should be; in fact, it should never have been allowed in the first place! 

    Stop the damned spending! Cut them off now! Let them spend the money he earns as the Chief Executive for personal things like this and get it done now. Financial Cliff, hell, this is a Financial hole drilled to the center of HELL! 

    The Obama’s need to be shut down – let them spend their own money and stop paying for everything they want with taxpayer funds. 

    No wonder this despot wants Congress to abdicate their fiduciary responsibility and hand him the check book. The last time we saw any head of state act like this it was Nicolae Ceaușescu, 

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolae_Ceau%C8%99escu

    Remember how that turned out?

    The excesses of these people when the nation struggles with record unemployment, staggering debt, and a culture war being waged against the successful being orchestrated by Obama are inexcusable. The next time a progressive opens his or her mouth about taxing the rich, they should be informed to the $1.4 billion a year they have cost this country by backing him and his family. This family alone will have spent more than $11,200,000,000.00 –  wasteful spending to the tune of $11.2 billion. 

    The Obama’s need to have some skin in the game, and they need to sacrifice like everyone else does – they need to be using their own money and to stop going on these expensive trips at taxpayer expense. Hasn’t anyone told them there is a recession? Where do they get access to this kind of money?

    This problem is that Beck lies about Obama, virtually every day.

    If you want the truth, don’t think you’re getting it from this deceitful propagandist.

    After the vacation is over, Google the question and look for unbiased sources for the answer.

    Luckily for America, not very many people take Glenn Beck seriously.

    Why can’t this shameless family shorten their vacation? Hell, how about sitting in the Oval Office and governing for a change? This man and his family has stolen from the American people, and this is a damn shame. There should be a limit/budget worked out for this mooching family. Bush went to Crawford TX. Less monies for his vacation. Oh, shall I dare say the Obamas feel they are entitled to 1.4 billion in protection and rich vacations, more than the Queen of England and her family.

    How pathetic your comments are. This is one year that Obama could have cut back. People are struggling worse than ever and he is off to Hawaii (hey that’s a lot of nasty jet fuel that will pollute) for 20 days,not to mention the 54 Christmas trees inside the White House. It’s all too much. If we wanted a monarchy in this country, then no one would have needed to fight in the American Revolution. Glenn Beck is certainly not what’s wrong with America. He’s what’s right with it. Obama is abusing the office with all his partying and vacationing.

    My husband and I are not poor, but nowhere near the “1%.” We care for my disabled mother in our home (saving the taxpayers about $60,000 in nursing home expenses per year).

    I want to know how much its been for past presidents!  I noticed Mooshell was bragging about their 54 Christmas trees – aside from the 37 they had last year, how many trees have past Presidents had?  The research I did, I couldn’t find any more than one Christmas tree for past Presidents that was even talked about.

    Okay, so lets put things into perspective a bit.  I haven’t the resources to research this further but I’m curious, if the Oblahblahs have cost American tax payers $1.8Bil last year, how much have past Presidents cost tax payers?  I don’t mind fighting the fight so long as I’ve got more than sound bytes!

    Oh, and by the way – its WAAAYYY more than $4Mil for their National Lampoon’s Griswolbama Christmas Vacation… its nearly $4Mil alone just for Air Force One expenditures!!  They’re also taking a C10 to transport the Presidential Limo’s, special Ambulances, special security helicopters, not to mention the scores of people to operate them – oh, and lets not forget the residents who will be inconvenienced because that area will be virtually shut down for a couple weeks.

    Glenn, surely you’ve got more data – I’m counting on you guys!

    Adding to it – I’m remembering the great statistical website that Perot did a few years back with “perotcharts.com” (I think that was it) and really, it was eye opening.  Its since been decommissioned but I’m curious, would the Blaze be bold enough to start drafting statistics like these and sharing them?  Particularly with respect to the blatant and wanton spending.  He wants the debt ceiling eliminated so he can spend-spend-spend – I guess he thinks he’s got unlimited cashflow for himself too – the American people need to know this.  Occupy movement could turn on him if he’s not careful.

    Obama hasn’t worked a day in his life. He has others do it for him because he” is”, yup that’s it ” he is”.  Obama is as dangerous as any dictator. He feels that everyone needs him and if they say they don’t he makes sure they are abandoned and isolated. As a free people( well previously free ) we don’t do well being “ruled” .

    Quite frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn how much money Obama screws out of our age-old treasury that was supposed to be operated for the benefit of honest, hard-working American people.  Why should I worry when the mainstream media doesn’t give a damn how much Obama steals from these hard-working American people?  In Chicago, they have a term for this way of doing the job you were elected to do: it’s called playing the political game the Chicago Way.  These corrupt Chicago politicians use the city treasury as their own piggy bank — the only difference is that they never have to put anything into the bank.  They only make withdrawals and leave it up to the hard-working honest citizens to make all the deposits.  What counts, in the long run, is that they’ve got the mainstream media on their side as well as their own crooked political party in on the scam, so, you see, Citizen, nothing is going to be done about it, not now not ever, never!   Most of the Black People in Chicage call it “The Game of playing Blacker Guy Rich”.  And nobody plays the Game better than this half-white, half-black Arab slave trader who lives in our White House.  He can spend any amount of money he wants because he knows he can count on all the loyal Democrats in the Democrat Party looking the otherway.  It’s those doggone Republicans who are his biggest problem, but, as I’ve already indicated, his slavish minions in the mainstream media can be counted on to take care of them.  Do you still have some questions you want to ask about Obama’s stash?

    My husband and I own a small business and haven’t had a vacation in 5 years. We just splurged on a trip to Vegas for three nights, airfare and hotel for our 30th anniversary. This cost us around $500.00. Plus a little spending money that we had to use a credit card for. I am sickened by this and all the rest of the BS that our leader and “Royal Family” can do because we pay for it. I’m ready to leave this country because of him and will live in poverty if necessary.

    Apparently the oblamers don’t know or don’t care – but ALL of their personal vacations – of any kind – are to be paid for by their own pocketbooks.  The ONLY things the taxpayers are supposed to pay for is PRESIDENTIAL jobs ONLY.  If it doesn’t pertain directly to his job – he pays for the trips or in the line of campaigning – that is to be paid for by the DNC or donors – and NOT the taxpayers – like so many have had to do with this campaign.  He will use anything he can to force the taxpayers to pay for every whim of his – because he wants to bring this country to it’s knees.  But so many people do not know what they are OBLIGATED to pay for for the oblamers family – and what we are NOT obligated.

    You all know the facts. There are families struggling just to provide enough food for themselves.
    Just imagine how even half of that $1.4 billion could be spent to assist the needy and downtrodden.
    But Mr. Obama does not think in those terms.  With golf clubs in hand and a seat on AFOne
    any time he likes, he just does not think about the less fortunate of the American people.

If most of NY voted for him, then he should at least help them. I don’t see him helping any disaster in America. What is wrong with the people?

    He will try to blame the higher taxes on the republicans. I think people will see right through that. Bottom line is that he is the president and he can’t blame this on any one. He is the one that increased the debt. He is still planning on increasing it and has no plans to pass a budget. The American people will not put up with this for much longer when they are affected.

    That is what I have said all along and that is nobody will do anything about what Obama does or even check his elgibility or his school records. He went to college on grants and programs for students from foreign countrys. His own ape lady said he was born in Kenya and Africa was his home land.

    I got an email from one of my senators from my state today and he did not answer any of the questions I asked him and they were all about BO. What he did say was he was doing the best he could to get the best he could for Oregon. This is a laugh because any email I have sent him he always skirts over the questions I ask and goes off in the direction he did today.

    Our government is full of nothing but liars and crooks who are over paid and under worked. Why are we spending so much to pay them when the do nothing bacause they can’t get along with each other so they either walk out or don’t show up.  Obama did not win the election he stole it and now he will make life hard and threaten everything. We are about to lose everything and it is sad because maggots voted fior Obama for the free things he gives that the tax payers pay for. The Treasure of TX is the one who called Obama voters maggots and said they deserved what he did but what the hell about the ones who didn’t vote for him and why do we have to be under his Hitler ways?

    You are so right when you said the media covers up for him, they dont print anything that is bad about the self appointed God and if he says don’t print that or don’t let the public know about this they don’t. One big example is the vacation his daughter and 12 of her friends and 25 secret service when they went to Mexico on spring break. How much did that cost. Nothing was said about the 2. something billion he gave the black farmers because of the treatement they received through the years and even Congress didn’t know about it or approve it.

    Now when this country is in such a mess, people still don’t have jobs, they are still losing their houses, they can’t even afford gas to look for work and what does Hitler do but goes on vacation that is going to cost the tax payers 4 million dollars. I am proud to be an American citizen, I love my country but I hate what our government has become and that is all of them. Liars, crooks and none of them give a rats ass about the people they work for.

    Obama and his ape are not royalty and they never will be. They should not be in the White House and he should not be president because he was not born here and Sheriff Joe and his possee proved it but nobody will do anything about it because they are afraid of the race game and Obama will play it. Before the election the net said Obama had bought this big multi million dollar house in Hawaii for when he lost he would have a place to retire. He didn’t lose because the illegal voted for him, the maggots voted for him, states ran out of ballots, people were denied the right to vote, ballots got lost and the military ballots got here too late to be counted but they were sent in plenty of time. No Obama stole the election and now it is up to the people to try and fix it before he destroys the rest of America. It is a sure bet Congress and the House are not going to do anything about it.

    They have bills in both chambers to impeach Obama but only if he tries to go to war without the approval of the Senate. It has to be us or we will sit and watch our country become a Muslim brotherhood with Hitler at the top of the chain.

    You have highlighted a major part of the problem. The media is to blame for the American people not knowing crucial information. Many who rely on just the main stream media will be in the dark about a lot of issues. It amazes me how little people know and how little they want to know. I do research outside of the media and the internet. I do that because I believe it is important to know this information. I wish more people were engaged. Because if they were, America could not be fooled. America would be smart enough to know what is happening and how we are losing so much of what our ancestors fought for.

    I do watch some liberal stations to see what they are saying. Of course, they will not show the devastation because it would make Obama look bad. When Bush was blamed for not helping the victims of Katrina, I believed he didn’t do enough. They showed it night and day. I only wish the media would tell the truth for both parties instead of sticking to their typical talking points.

      Only 4 million? I think this a very lowball number. I’d say closer to 10 million. This man has no heart. The people of Hurricane Sandy are still suffering and homeless(and after 38 days I place it firmly on him). The country are about to be in an economic crisis and what does he do? Vacation again. As I said no heart for this country. Seems the only thing he is good at is going on vacation and kissing the super rich’s butts(think about).

    Why do our tax dollars pay for the president and his family’s vacation? He gets a pay check like we do and should pay for his own. He’s one of the wealthy elite and has more money than any of us.  He’s not special! What’s going on with people accepting this? There’s no racism involved either. My gosh liberals, moderates and communists, wake up already!

    4 million for one vacation? 1.4 billion per year? It doesn’t matter, it’s only someone else’s money. It just goes on top of the debt. It’s just part of the deficit. No big deal. Moochelle deserves all those vacations and special treatment, after all, she is finally proud of this country.  It’s tough work telling our soldiers and children what they can and can not eat.  Obamao needs all those vacations, he has to recover from all the golf somehow. It’s REALLY tough work doing everything he can to collapse our system so he can be named Supreme Ruler of the Universe. Give the guy a break or just another vacation.

     I really think Hamilton was right, we should’ve had an elective monarchy. A ceremonial figurehead for Head of State is far less dangerous than an elected Head of State (President).

    Not to mention this article didn’t mention that the USA also spends about $5 billion on Presidential Elections. If we had a royal family instead, we’d save that $5 billion AND the $1 billion the Obama’s use.

    Plus, having royalty boosts tourism substantially. It’s practically the only reason tourists go to England!

    and you do realize that google tracks you’re actions no? If you spend more time reading pro-democratic articles it eventually filters out the conservative perspective, so what you’ll find is eventually only the perspective you are comfortable hearing. By the way Youtube does this too. I find it harder now since they’ve made some changes to search for liberally-biased videos to see your perspective. Don’t believe me? Go to a conservative friend’s house and use your computer and theirs to search for the same word or concept that can be spun two ways. You’ll see they are putting blinders on you. Bush spent a lot, but Obama has spent more than not just him but pretty much any leader ever. Even if you don’t believe that, he’s still wasting millions of your tax dollars while bashing the rich for spending that same amount of their own money, a bad man is a bad man just because you think Bush was wrong, it doesn’t justify what this President has done any more. It just seems like you are making excuses for him.

    I hate to tell you Paolina — the English do have elected leaders.  I don’t know how much they spend on elections, but they do have a Prime Minister and a lot of  others are elected. The Royal faily is also very, very wealthy.  They probably spend some of their own money, too.  Of course, we have our own very wealthy elected officials who didn’t have much before they became senators, like the senator (I’ve forgotten who) who it was reported just last week is now worth $40 million.  Where did that money come from?  No wonder Senate hopefuls spend millions to get a job that pays relatively little. They also get to take fabulous vacations that we pay for.  These vacations are for a supposed convention (that lasts a few hours) so they can hone their skills  on the beach or at a nightlub. They also have fabulous benefits:  health care outside of the kind the normal American qualifies for. wonderful gyms and spas, beauty salons that charge very little or are free.  They have great retirement benefits

You should try to get ahold of  some of the budget documentation using the freedom of information act…Oh wait I forgot this administration hasn’t set a budget!! Nor do they actually allow you to get your hands on some of that without putting you on a watchlist. You should try, even if you don’t believe me, just pretend to be a concerned citizen and question everything and do some real digging. Not some website like this or some progressive rag, no I mean investigate try to get access to some government records and databases, make friends with some Secret Service agents, trust me you’ll be shocked how dirty this President is. Of course you’ll also likely end up with a gun to your head in an alley somewhere. I’d love to explain how I know, but that would be plain stupid.

    Ceaușescu’s second decade was characterized by an increasingly brutal and repressive regime—by some accounts, the most Stalinist regime in the Soviet bloc. It was also marked by a ubiquitous personality cult, nationalism and a deterioration in foreign relations with the Soviet Union. Ceaușescu’s government was overthrown in the December 1989 revolution, and he and his wife were executed following a televised and hastily organised two-hour court session.

    I agree that Obama is a lousy president, but as much as I
    dislike him, Glenn Beck is skewing the facts.  The president does NOT live in the white house
    with free room and board, people- he pays rent, utilities, and all the necessities,
    right down to the toothpaste. (even the President has to pay for his own
    groceries) Yes, the president and his family are going to Hawaii on vacation,
    but did you expect them to take Spirit Airlines? Can you say engine
    sabotage?  Or plane jacking?  There’s a thing called “Air force One” and it
    is an aircraft designed specifically for the purpose of transporting the
    President of the United States of America SAFELY and without incident, and like
    any aircraft, it is expensive to run, though it is more so than others.  Also, when the President goes ANYWHERE, not
    just on vacation, his life is in danger (people don’t like him, he is a leader,
    and there are those who want him dead) so they need to take security measures,
    cameras, bullet proof vests,  staff, accommodations
    for staff (their hotels, cars and foods, etc) all those people are paid to keep
    the president and his family safe from assassins and terrorists. Is it
    expensive? Yes. Bush cost more to protect than Clinton because after 9/11, shit
    got real. It hasn’t gotten any better, and with inflation of prices on fuel and
    everything else due to a shitty economy (That Obama hasn’t done squat about)
    and the fact that, let’s face it, the Obama family is mostly black and people
    are still racist, it DOES cost more to protect the Obamas than the previous
    presidents.  It’s not fair to compare
    them to the British royal family because 1.) The royal family is just a figure
    head, they have no political power and have absolutely nothing to do with the British
    government or the running of the country and 2.) Most everyone in Britain LOVES
    the royal family.  I am not Defending
    Obama, he has no business being president of anything, but I do know that it’s
    not like he’s living the high life and drinking fine Champaign with diamonds in
    the glass on taxpayer’s expense- all that money solely goes to protecting him
    and his family- the money to pay for the actual “vacation” part (the
    fun stuff, not paying security guards) comes out of HIS pocket.  Hate Obama for his lack of experience and
    common sense, not vicious rumors and twisted details.

If England was as big as those 29 states alone the royals would’ve spent at least 1.676 billion if they spent the same amount for each state as they did for England. It’s not a fair comparison when England is so much smaller. Just saying.

    The American Revolution was fought to get out from under the tyranny of English Royalty and their taxation without representation.  Now we are under the tyranny of the Presidential Royalty who is taxing the American working class and the American industries out of existence.   Citizens of the United States needed to vote out all the tax and spenders in Washington DC last month.  Did they?  NO!  Unfortunately, we in the middle class who work for a living and support the moochers who voted obummer back in, are stuck with the administration sucking us dry for 4 more years.  I almost hope the Mayans are right and it ends on December 21st.  Read Agenda 21, people!!!  Watch 2016, the documentary.  I am beyond frustrated with everyone in government.  They are all guilty for not holding anyone accountable, not filing treason charges, and lying to all of us.

    julie 02–It’s not who voted for him, it’s who did he buy votes from! How about the black vote  because he is black (or at least 1/2 black), the gay vote because he NOW supports gay marriage, the latino vote because he offers amnesty, the student vote because he will forgive their student loans, the single women vote because of the bogus “war on women” and their right to have free birth control, etc, and let us not forget those who are just plain lazy because he will no longer require that they look for a job in order to get their free government check each week.

    The Nobamas act more like entitled royalty than anything else and I, for one, do not want one dollar of my tax money taken from my pocket spent on ANY of their lavish vacations. They should have to pay for all of it themselves (and that goes for every government official). We the peons don’t get an all-expense paid vacation. I don’t begrudge anyone (or any president) their vacation, but they should be self-funded and NOT 20 days; especially with what is going on in this country! If things don’t change, I think there will be a revolt one day as the people get sick of the Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in the white house. I certainly
    know that I am not represented by this administration and I’m tired of paying for it.

    On a related note, why are people in DC still celebrating Christmas anyway? It has been banned from public places and yet the Nobamas have 54 trees??? I believe that NO government employee should get paid time off for a religious holiday anymore; they should use their vacation time. I think the atheists would agree and after all, that minority is winning the battle to put God in a closet.

Everyone is looking for some Savior to come along and take over and fix things while we sit on our butts in our comfort zones, take no risk or inconvenience our lives. Face it. We do not have the spirit and the passion of people who fought to get out from under the tyranny of the English royalty during the  American Revolution. We now live under the tyranny of the Washington elite. We think that we are doing our part by voting. How is that working out for us?I don’t know what can to be done to turn things around, but what we ARE doing is not working.

    Just thought you would like to know what Obama is doing with the stimulas money.  Mitt Romney was correct when he said that Obama was buying votes.  I live in Farmington, N.M..
    Once a week I go to the Bonnie Dallas Senior Center.  One day people came into the center
    and was offering “FREE” cell phones.  300 minutes a month with unlimited texing.  If you made
    a certain amount all you had to do was pay $1.86 a month.  When I asked how could Cellular
    One do this the reply was that it was money from the stimulas money.  Thanks to President Obama.  He has not created one job.  Just given free phones to people with limited income.
    He bought their vote.  I forgot to add that they do this at least four times a year.Had to get this off my chest.

    Tragically, despite the obvious and outrageous screwing of the taxpayer, the beat goes on. The inevitable answer according to politicans is higher taxes even when the problem is one of spending instead of revenue. Seems like it’s a lot easier to raise taxes than to fix problems which would cut into activities like vacation and golfing. But predictably at the next election, the sheeple go to the polls and vote these charlatans back in office. Each party puts up some unqualified candidate with larcenous tendencies, and one of those gets elected. It doesn’t matter which one wins, the taxpayer loses. Our big money-driven system makes certain of that. Worse yet, over time the damage done gets more and more severe. We’re on the edge of the cliff right now folks, and I don’t mean the phony pol speak “fiscal cliff” we are bombarded with every day. If we miss our chance to bring about real change, then we’re certain to go over the edge into that bottomless pit. Recognition is always the first step in solving any problem.

    That is the mentality. But they will be disappointed when they don’t get it.
    When and if Obama raises the taxes on the wealthy, the wealthy won’t be as rich and may not give to the poor as much. The playing fields will be leveled and then who will help the poor people? The government will only give a little to help them (as they see fit). The wealthy (small businesses) won’t be able to hire as much and so it will be the poor and middle class that will ultimately suffer from raising taxes on the rich. I hope that makes them happy.

    Occupy protesters are now being traced back to the liberals. I knew they were behind it. They waged war between the poor and rich. This class warfare is being done because they know the poor are envious. They know that they can use the poor to get their agenda of higher taxes. All Obama has to do is promise them things and convince the poor that they are poor because the rich aren’t paying their fair share. Of course, that has nothing to do with it. The wealthy worked hard, went to school to better themselves and deserve what they earned. A poor person has just as much chances to do the same thing. They can even get college paid for. In order to complete the agenda of socializing this country, all of this must be done. Class warfare will separate and destroy our country. It will be the death of capitalism.

    Yes, Obama has contempt for “the rich”, yet he is living the high life….power included just like those he wants us to despise.  Does anyone really think that raising taxes on the wealthy includes Obama cronies who padded his pockets not once, but both the elections?  Of course not.  The reason why they “donated” money to his campaign is same reason Liberals voted for him.  Because they expect to get something in return. How can anyone not arrogant this man is?  What has he really done for this country in the past 4 years and now?  Nothing of any significance in a positive sense. It has been a smoke and mirrors administration….all aimed at fulfilling Agenda 21′s motive.  And it is so blatently obvious to all of us who actually do research and aren’t just “headline readers” as I like to call the blind.  Those of us who know the truth need to focus on stopping the New World Order takeover of our freedoms.  And the start of it would be to show Obama for who he really is. A traitor to the American people.

    To be fair, all the Presidents (Republicans and Democrats) flush an astounding amount of money down the toilet. Look at the White House staff, just employing that army costs taxpayers countless billions of dollars every year. I don’t even think it matters anymore, we’re 16+ trillion dollars in debt (not counting entitlements) does it matter if we were 20 trillion or 30 trillion dollars in debt? Our two party system has disregarded every principle this nation was founded on just to remain in power. It’s hard to defeat, our government gives things away (not yours either, future generations money, your money is long gone) and people have become dependent on the government over the years (S.S. and other entitlement programs) getting them “un-dependen”t will be almost impossible. Politicians knew, and know this, that’s why they’ve done business this way for over a century, power and money, it’s destroyed civilizations in the past, and it’s destroying ours today.

    Obama says any deal on the fiscal cliff must be a “balanced package” that raises taxes on the wealthy, spends MORE MONEY on “infrastructure” along with INCREASING the debt limit!  Obama is a progressive socialist who will stop at nothing to ruin this country and he got re-elected, that’s sick!

  • Anonymous

    What socialist agenda do you keep talking about.  Get a clue.  First, Obamacare was written by the Harvest Foundation which is a conservative group.  The bill basically privatizes insurance for all.  Oh, but wait, the GOP only wants things privatized where they can make money!!!!  They don’t want to pay for anything.  Just like when these companies pay minimum wage and people still qualify for FOOD STAMPS.  Companies don’t want to pay employees enough to afford a roof over their heads or food in their stomachs.  These companies just want you to work for the little they pay and then have the government subsidize the rest and then they want to scream about having to pay taxes for entitlements.  They pay these people very little in order to shift that burden to the government and then have the middle class up the bill.  This makes the middle class poorer all while not having to pay a time out of their pockets.  Get a clue.  Glen Beck if you are such a Christian then go read your Bible.  “To whom much is give, much is required.”  Why don’t I ever hear you talking about that Bible verse and what about God’s law in the Old Testament on give the poor the rich’s spoils.  No, you don’t ever want to say that!!!!  You my friend are one of the biggest hypocrites and I am a Christian.  But, I understand what God says in his Word and you my friend are missing the larger message in the Bible.  This GOP blinds you with things like abortion and homosexuality (which most of support when put on the spot)  so that they can keep you busy fighting these things in hope that you are not paying attention to the real policies they are trying to push through.  People use your heads.  They gave the rich 10 years of tax cuts and they still sent 3.4 million jobs overseas.  They paid lower wages saved on taxes and pocketed the rest.  Is this country really that stupid.  You want to know where the jobs went, ask the GOP.  While their rich friends continue to send jobs overseas and keep their money overseas, they expect the middle class to pay for the roads and the wars for which they also reap the benefits.  That is what broke this country along with China’s manipulated currency.  China is still communist at the end of the day and America is supporting it by continuing to buy these companies goods that they make there.  Look at what Steve Jobs said in his book, “He doesn’t have an allegiance to the US.”  Wake up Ameica!  Wake up!  Suprise.  When you support communism you will be a communist and they will tell you it is all in the name of competing.  When the GOP is trying to take the voice of the American Worker away and trying to weaken OSHA and the EPA this is your warning sign.  Go see what the Republicans are up to while you have been fighting against abortion and homosexuallity.  Two issues that they will never completely address because some of these guys, their family members and friends are gay and because they aren’t going to want to foot the bill for all the unwanted children.  So that aside, do you know whatelse the GOP stands for because if you do and you vote for them then the condition of this country is just as much your fault as it is theirs.

  • Anonymous

    Also, please go read the Patriot Act that the GOP passed all in the name of terriorism.  This is how they get you.  They can sit in your churches and listen to what is being said.  And all the Christians in this country turned a blind eye.  Why is that???  People, start paying attention to the bigger picture.  Also, think about socialism.  The methods we have in place today is the social program.  Today, if people who bypass paying for insurance so they can purchase other things and companies that don’t want to pay for it or offer it to their employees then when they get sick and land in a hospital who pays for it.  The TAXPAYER.  That is the social program.  Because again, big business doesn’t want to be completely private they just want the parts of privitization that makes them money not the part they makes them pay out money.  HELLO AMERICA ARE YOU LISTENING???

    Presidents should pay for their Own vacations just as we do, who are forced to pay for his!  It’s totally insane.  Congress could stop that but they don’t.  WHY???

     Where, Barbara, do you think that the “Royal Family” in England got their wealth? Jobs. Farming? Manufacturing? Mining? Nope. It came from the taxing on “the people” over hundreds of years of intimidation, the Royal Family had the Army to enforce their wishes and wills on ordinary folks. The “Royal Family” represents the biggest welfare bunch on the fave of the earth and the Brits deserve them if they continue to support them;  QED

    Yes, but the royals own their own land.  They turn over their profits VOLUNTARILY to their government, and they actually put 160 million pounds profit in their treasurey each year.  The Obamasans are certainly not earning the US anything…

    Yawn, you morons will believe anything! Lol!

    Deconstructing the 5 most ridiculous myths about Barack Obama

    From January 2009 to October 31, 2012, Obama spent all or part of 72
    vacation days in a variety of places, mostly Hawaii in the winter and
    Martha’s Vineyard in the summer. That’s about 10 weeks away in
    three-and-a-half years, hardly extravagant. Through May 18, according to
    data from CBS’s Knoller, he also visited Camp David 22 times, spending all of part of 54 days

    George W. Bush spent 32 months at his ranch (490 days) or Camp David (487 days) — an average of four months away every year.

    I am furious to the tip of my toes over congress allowing this president and his family to spend the kind of money their vacations cost the taxpayers!  WHY DOESN’T CONGRESS STOP IT!  He is egotistical, greedy and like a kid in a candy store!  With our money!  Yet, telling us we ALL need to sacrifice!  This is insane to allow him this kind of freedom to blow tax payer’s money.  The media says NOTHING???

  • Maria Stringer

    WHY ARE YOU AMERICANS discussing the Royals?  Instead of the idiot we have who is insanely spending money on his, his daughter plus friends and family on vacations?  Why will the congress not force him to park that plan and take ONE vacation a year????   It is horrible and has made most Americans hate the whole family.

    Hopefully those ni38e1s will get killed on the way over or on the way back. They are both a couple of white hating irresponsible children. They are both liars too. Michelle the gorilla is insecure about being black and obama wishes he was all white. Both just common ni47e1s.

    Hey, Glenn, the Fool, Beck? Your president GWB cost the taxpayers multi millions of dollars in his engagement of 2 wars–one was invading the wrong country–Iraq. More importantly, oh Unenlightened one, he and Cheney caused the egregiously, unnecessary loss of our American soldiers and innocent citizens. And you have the audacity to raise the issue of what President Obama has cost the taxpayers? Also, let me refresh that limited gray matter of yours regarding Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shutdown of OUR govt. in Oct. 2013 to the tune of $24 billion dollars to the taxpayers. For what? “Obamacare”? Well, you and your ilk lost, once again! Enjoy your cowardice trait as an active Tea Party Taliban member; you’ll eventually pay for your ill ways towards: the middle class, the poor, the elderly, our veterans and their families, the mentally challenged and the disenfranchised of this country. You are simply on the wrong side of God’s law. A nurse from Boston

    P.S. Btw, all you conservative T.P. followers: We have “Romneycare” and we just love it here! Just remember all it takes is one catastrophic medical or natural disaster event to turn your financial house into rubble!

    Kudos, Barbara Sorenson! Paolina is too “dumbed down” at this point and just may be a card-carrying member of the Tea Party Taliban club. And trust me when I say, Paolina, “dumbed down” is just where the Koch Bros., Rove’s Citizens United, casino mogul Sheldon Adelson want you so that they can egregiously turn this democracy into a oligarchy state! The wealthy few will dominate over the masses of the middle class. Choose your party wisely, Paolina. The T.P. zealots will make sure that if you should have a catastrophic medical event or a natural disaster visit upon your “Hearth and Home”, that you will have to pick yourself up by your own bootstraps. After all their goal is to shrink the federal govt. to the size of Rhode Island. Check out the “Manchurian Candidate” movie, Paolina and good luck; I trust that one day you just may need it.

    The tea party stands for ( a balanced budget ). ( lower taxes or a flat tax ) ( strict adherence to the U.S constitution the law of the land ) ( the right of religious freedom ) ( roll back the federal leviathan ). ( term limits rather than lifer politicians ) ( ending affirmative action or let’s call it what it really is reverse discrimination .) And here is where the lunatic left starts the tea party terrorist accusations Many in the tea party not all would like to limit the over the top 1 plus million abortions a year in America count me as one that believes no women has the right to murder in some cases many abortions 1 women admitted to having 15 abortions in 16 years and I,m the terrorist!!!! With all the contraceptives in America what’s a good excuse for multiple abortions,hell yes people make mistakes even with all the protection available today,but for those of you that don,t believe their is a moral question to abortion simply have no morals? I honestly believe this is where the hatred for religion begins with the leftist gorillas in this country.I am not a religious person but I find the notion that we must accept abortion and gay marriage completely repugnant

    And by the way caterpillar comparing the Taliban and the tea party is like comparing liberals to conservatives.you should read the history of your beloved party.the party that fought tooth and nail to keep slavery in this country,that fought tooth and nail against the likes of Martin Luther King for racial equality in this country,the party that gave us the Vietnam war.The party with card carrying racist zealots like senator Byrd right into the 90′s .But you keep drinking the socialist koolaid with people like you voting the U.S will continue it,s free fall faster than the Roman Empire could have ever dreamed in fact we haven,t made it for 250 years while the Romans were around for 1500 years..keep that propaganda rolling caterpillar
