Obama sent this letter to government employees. In it he says
“You do all this in a political climate that, too often in recent years, has treated you like a punching bag. You have endured three years of a federal pay freeze, harmful sequester cuts, and now, a shutdown of our government. …None of this is fair to you.
This shutdown was completely preventable. It should not have happened. And the House of Representatives can end it as soon as it follows the Senate’s lead, and funds your work in the United States Government without trying to attach highly controversial and partisan measures in the process.
So while the budget fights in Washington are too often partisan, your service to the country should never be.[There’s a whopper]
…And I will do everything in my power to get the House of Representative to allow our government to reopen as quickly as possible, and receive the pay that you have earned. “
Can you count the lies in just the last statement? Could he politicize this government any more than he has? – something he should never do.
He told CNBC, on the debt ceiling:
“this time I think Wall Street should be concerned,” Obama said….”When you have a situation in which a faction is willing to default on U.S. obligations, then we are in trouble,” Obama said.
He claims he bent over backwards in his presidency to work with Republicans and kept his rhetoric low, deliberately. Then he added that Republicans are threatening to “burn the house down”. He cannot go a paragraph without contradicting himself as the hypocrite in chief.
We were “in trouble” the minute America elected a radical to the highest office, and have been stuck there ever since.
