Tax, Tax, and then Tax Some More: Obama's Continuing Goal
Posted April 23, 2013
President Obama finally released his FY 2014 budget more than 2
months late -- breaking yet again the budget law. And almost $1
trillion in new tax increases. That's on top of the $618 billion in
the "fiscal cliff" deal.
Part of what he is proposing:
- Limiting deductions for such things as mortgage interest and
charitable giving to 28%
-Proposing many more government controls on IRAs and 401(k)s --
hurting those who have scrimped and saved to have a better
-Increasing the death tax from 40% to 45% -- even though putting it
at 40% was a compromise
-Increase the tobacco tax by almost 100%
-Almost $100 billion in new taxes on middle class investments and
This budget completely violates his campaign pledge to not increase
taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 a year. Bigger
government, more spending, more deficits, more taxes -- that is
President Obama's plan for the U.S.A.

Obama's Unprecedented Attempts to Expand Federal Power

Sen. Cruz Releases Inaugural Report on Obama Administration's
Unprecedented Attempts to Expand Federal Power

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
today released a report -
"The Legal Limit: The Obama Administration's Attempts to Expand
Federal Power" - that analyzes six instances in the last 15
months where the U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously rejected the
Obama Administration's arguments for increased federal power.
"When President Obama's own Supreme Court nominees join their
colleagues in unanimously rejecting his Administration's call for
broader federal power six times in just over one year, the
inescapable conclusion is that the Obama Administration's view of
federal power knows virtually no bounds," said Sen. Cruz. "This is
a deeply troubling pattern that we will continue to highlight as
long as this Administration continues seeking ways to expand its
power in direct violation of Americans' constitutional rights."
Sen. Cruz's report highlights the six cases that the Supreme
Court has unanimously rejected since January 2012. Had President
Obama's Department of Justice been successful in its cases, the
federal government would have the power to:
- Attach GPSs to a citizen's vehicle to monitor his movements,
without having any cause to believe that a person has committed a
crime (United States v. Jones);
- Deprive landowners of the right to challenge potential
government fines as high as $75,000 per day and take away their
ability have a hearing to challenge those fines (Sackett v.
- Interfere with a church's selection of its own ministers.
(Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & School v.
- Override state law whenever the President desires. (Arizona
v. United States);
- Dramatically extend statutes of limitations to impose penalties
for acts committed decades ago. (Gabelli v. SEC); and
- Destroy private property without paying just compensation.
(Arkansas Fish & Game Commission v. United States).
The arguments advanced in these cases demonstrate an astonishing
view of federal power on behalf of the Obama Administration that is
worthy of further examination. View the full report below:

Are Senate Dems Up in 2014 Flipping and Flopping Just to Save Their Hides?
Posted April 02, 2013
Up for reelection in 2014, Senators Baucus, Begich, Pryor, and
Hgan, are trying to find a more conservative tone -- never mind all
their liberal votes. But when you look at their conservative
ratings in the 2nd session of the last Congress, the numbers tell a
different story -- Baucus 9%, Begich 6%, Hagan 4%, and Pryor 14%.
When you consider that the entire Senate is rated 38% conservative,
the rating of these four senators isn't very conservative at
In 2012, Obama lost the states that each one of these senators
represent by an average of 13%. North Carolina, represented by
Hagan, was the closest as it was only carried by Mitt Romney by
For example on the Democrats' big spending and more taxes budget
proposal, not one of this Gang of Four -- Baucus, Begich, Hagan,
and Pryor -- voted for it.
It's the same old story for these kind of Democrats -- speak
conservative at home but vote liberal in Wasihngton, DC -- except
when you're up soon for reelection.
