President Obama Amazingly Obliterates The Republican Budget In Less Than 60 Seconds

obama-gop-budget

It took President Obama less than a minute to destroy the Republican budget proposal by pointing out the many failures of the conservative financial fantasy blueprint.

Video:

The president said:

I should mention that I was hoping for a little luck of the Irish as the Republicans put forward their budget today. Unfortunately, what we’re seeing right now is a failure to invest in education, infrastructure, research and national defense. All the things that we need to grow, need to create jobs, to stay at the forefront of innovation and to keep our country safe. “It’s not a budget that reflects the future. It’s not a budget that reflects growth. It’s not a budget that is going to help ensure that middle-class families are able to maintain security and stability and that people who are trying to get into the middle class are going to have the rungs on the ladder to get into the middle class.

The president was so easily able to rip apart the Republican budget proposal, because it is the same tired ideas that they have been pushing for years. The Republican budget would lower taxes for people at the top while gutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The budget is also based on the myth that Republicans will be able to repeal Obamacare. There is not a single forward thinking idea in the Republican budget.

The Republican budget was more of the same old stuff that is never going to see the light of day. It is an ideological wish list. A fantasy that is not based on the reality of what the country needs in order to move forward. The Republican budget is a broken record that is loaded with fatal scratches.

It is not surprising that President Obama was able to take it apart so quickly. This budget is a failure. It is a failure in every way that the president described and dozens more. It is a betrayal of our veterans. It is a betrayal of the poor. This budget crushes the American dream and destroys any hope of upward mobility.

The Republican budget is a Koch dream that President Obama quickly shocked back to reality.

  1. Sixty seconds? How bout one second? It stinks! There, see how quickly you can obliterate their budget when you aren’t trying to be polite?

  2. The TP/GOP budget does exactly what the TP/GOP wants. It will further weaken the American people and allow the USA to further fall apart. That is what they want to destroy the USA and hurt the American people.

  3. Out in the open for all to see. A piece of S#it Budget.
    Obama said get this piece of _____t outta my face. Work on it some more….Be real and don’t leave nothing out that is good for the American people, otherwise we will be on this merry-go-round once more. Kapish? Fine. Proceed.

  4. The GOP budget doesn’t plan for the future, only punishes us for the Democrat’s past failures to show up at the polls.

    Gawd, I wish they’d quit whining.

  5. Truely twisted. I think they like the punishment. Thats the only reason they could possibly keep doing the same thing over and over. They don’t expect a different result, they want a smack down.

  6. I know, it’s a broken record with this bunch of UN-Americans.:

    The tea bag/repubs govern by the 5 G’s
    GAYS, GOD, GUNS, GREED, and GYNOCOLOGY

  7. How do you get this message out to those in the right wing bubble who only watch fox, blaze and other right wing media? How will those old white people who have fox on 24/7 find out the people they voted for are going to cut their Medicare and social security? They are ignorant enough to blame the President (because fox will blame them for rethug cuts).

    I saw a video today of teabaggers who said they only watch fox and listen to beck. These bubble people are not willing to listen to the other side because they have been so brainwashed by their cult they no longer can see the truth even if it hit them by 2×4.

    My biggest fear is the fools will continue to be fooled.

    And the rest of us will be screwed over by the lazy people who don’t pay attention and vote.

  8. You should go visit the Faux Nooze propaganda page, it’s pure ignorance over there. I almost needed to get disinfected after visiting it.

    They’re all on the same hate and scared shitless page.

  9. Come on righties, let’s hear from you. Tell us how wonderful those cuts are to Social Security, and how much your parents and grandparents can’t wait for those cuts. How about you, as parents? Don’t you just love those cuts to public education? Your kids and grandkids really don’t need a real good education to compete in the global marketplace, right? And how about the roads and bridges you use? Maybe your states or towns can just raise some sales or property taxes, huh?

  10. Perhaps it’s time to make gunpowder illegal?

    That way every voting ammosexual will hoard the stuff to the point that they’ll be chlorinating the gene pool.

  11. My husband likes to torture me sometimes and turns on Fox after 5 minutes I want to throw the remote at the Tv. The idiocacy is astounding. How anyone with even half a brain agrees with the bs is insane.

  12. Guys, sorry to burst your Republican hate bubble, but Obama’s policies have been disastrous for America. You guys want to complain about proposed entitlement cuts without acknowledging that current spending is bleeding this country dry, so much so, that programs like Social Security are projected to run out of money(not just BHO’s fault). I’m a veteran, in fact I retire from military service this month. What concerns me more than loosing benefits in the future is the continued level of federal spending right now. Things have to change, and we’re all going to feel it. A balanced budget in 9 years sounded pretty good to me.

  13. Finally DJ!! Fi nal e, Gun nuts Teaparty & their Patriots and last but not least Republican “minority snuffers”. Moongrim, you’re a genius. We all know the above mentioned Patridiots are going to become extinct. Just make sure we don’t live nextdoor to one when they start stockpiling all that illegal gun powder..Jes’ sayin”. Boom![wink]

  16. This is like the experiment when they let test subjects shock people. Shortly, the subjects were full fledged masochists.

  17. We appreciate your valiant, brave service to our country, thanks so much. It appears that you may or may be suffering from HAS(Hammer-Anvil Silliness). The VA has well staffed mental services that can help you slow the damage the anvil is enduring inside of the vortexdumper if you need treatment. Good luck sir & thanks again for your service Chris.[wink]

  18. Maxie:

    You’re just blowing out an opinion, not facts. The President stated facts.

    Try stating facts, not opinions.

  19. I wish he had been able to confine his remarks to the Republican budget. Some of the other stuff like trade agreements certainly undercuts his message.

  20. I don’t care for the trade agreements either, but they’re a h$#l of a lot better than what the Repubs have already done to this country – not even counting this hideously cruel budget.

    And Chris, do you not realize that Obama’s policies have cut the deficit just about in half? Probably not. Please don’t call us “Republican haters.” That is totally unfair. The Repubs are VERY different from what they were before they started pandering to the lunatic fringe for votes and the super-rich for money. I’ve voted Republican, but I never will again.

  21. Grow a brain and learn some history before you post, and then everyone knows how ignorant your statements are.

  22. Hate to burst your republican bubble
    Since you’re retiring from the military

    Panel would shrink troops’ retirement pay, offer 401(k)s

    rejected by the Republican Senate.

    H.R. 466 – Wounded Veteran Job Security Act became H. R. 2875.
    H.R. 1168 — Veterans Retraining Act
    H.R. 1171 – Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program Reauthorization

    H.R. 2352 – Job Creation Through Entrepreneurship Act

    S.1982
    Veterans organizations were upset with Senate Republicans after they failed to gain enough votes of support to move forward with a measure that would have expanded federal healthcare and education programs for veterans.
    60 …

  23. 1987, Ronald Reagan cuts VA Medical by $500 million. 4 months later, that same $500 million was dumped into Stars Wars Missile program.

    George W. Bush unfunded $4.2 billion from the Veterans Administration from 2003-2008.
    March, 29, 2014, Senators’, McConnell, McCain, Burr, and Flake voted against emergency funding for VA Hospitals.

    Oklahoma Senator, Tom Coburn stated that building new VA facilities in Oklahoma would be too lavish of a project because Vets only need small clinics.

    July 21, 2014- House GOP votes down expansion of much needed VA Medical Facilities

    In 1984, Congress ordered the CDC in Atlanta to conduct research on the effects of Agent Orange on Vietnam Vets. 1987, Reagan orders the research stopped. “Enough of this, it’s time to move on.” Truth be told, he ordered the research stopped at the request of Monsanto so they would not have to deal with Capitol Hill oversight on bringing their Roundup weed killer to market.

  24. They will never learn will they? Why do the gop hate the Middle Class Americans? Why do the gop hate women? Why do the gop hate the poor, who are not the parasites, the upper 1% are?

    Most of the wealthy did not earn their wealth through hard work, but through inheritance. Why should they not pay their fair share?

    Oh yeah the gop tarts want their money instead.

    Why do the gop claim they love America when they prove they don’t?

  25. All I’m hearing on this budget is left-wing bullshit. It doesn’t CUT anything, merely slows the growth over 10 yrs. It’s only slightly less damaging than Obamas budget.Spending has run amok, and Dems AND Reps are to blame. Wish someone, ANYONE in politics or media would just be honest for once. Stop repeating talking points and try the truth for a change

  26. You are the ignorant ones who are problem in this country. Slow the growth? By giving the rich more money? HOW THE F@CK did that work out during the bush administration dumbass?

  27. The deficit is at its’ lowest since peaking in 2009 on the tail end of the GFC; unemployment is down to 5.6%; GDP and DOW both up. So, by which definition do you say Obama’s economy is failing? The only way in which I feel he is failing is that he hasn’t rolled back so many of the stupid trickle-down tax cuts that hurt the economy. He’s been too nice to the Republicans in the interests of trying to work with them instead of putting them in their place. If we let the Republicans set the agenda, corporate interests would be the sole driver for decision making, not the best interests of the average citizen…

  28. I have been saying it for years;everyday it is proven that I am right! GOP is not the GRAND OLD PARTY, but the party who idolizes money. Be it by banking Koch dollars, pocketing donations from corporations they favor taxwise, hands out for lobbyists to support their cause.

    Everyone of them is richer a year or so after election than they were before. Where does it come from?

    The middle class is fighting to maintain a decent life, but the GOP & Tea Party obstructionists only want that for themselves.

    Have not expressed myself in the same manner before.

  30. AGAIN, you are just repeating talking points. I didn’t defend their budget in ANY way, merely pointed out that “slashing” programs was inaccurate. I also assigned blame to BOTH parties, which IS accurate. How does any of that mean giving the rich more money? The problem in this country is people putting blinders on (either left or right) sides. The answer obviously falls somewhere in the middle, but politics has turned to an all left or all right pissing contest. and that just soaks everyone in urine. Have a nice day, DUMBASS!

  31. How is turning medicare into block grants, cutting SNAP, repealing the ACA not slashing programs? On to of that they claim they will balance the budget only by counting $147 billion in “dynamic” economic growth spurred by the policies of the budget itself. WTF IS DYNAMIC ECONOMIC GROWTH? Unicorns shitting golden bricks?
    I let a republican sum it up for you. “I don’t know anyone who believes we’re going to balance the budget in 10 years,” said Representative Ken Buck, Republican of Colorado. “It’s all hooey.”

    Before you comment I suggest you educate yourself and get your head out of fox and Hannity ass

  32. The Republicans got the idea for their budget when they saw a dog run into an electric fence over and over again.

  33. I have actually read both budget proposals- you obviously have not- I stand by my comments. I said nothing that was partisan, in fact just the opposite. But I disagree with you so you make assumptions that I’m right-wing, and I am not. I despise Hannity, and you are just like him, only the opposite end of the spectrum… You have no interest in discussion, only spewing hate filled rhetoric. And that serves noone any meaningful purpose. Enjoy your darkness, FTARD.

  34. Oh I have . I also have read the progressive budget proposal which goes a lot further than the President in helping the middle class. You stated that the republicans budget does not slash programs and will balance the budget which I have showed is a lie.

    So please explain to my feeble mind how the republican budget doesn’t slash programs that the vast majority of Americans depend on while making the rich richer

  35. thanks dj for schooling jeff on budget basics. His fox talking points are a joke. He clearly eats up that gotp propaganda. The rwnj’s really hate middle class Americans. I am ready for Hillary. The Koch congress would cut everything that benefits the middle, then hand it all over to the 1%. We need to end them.

  36. Right now my kids are on spring break. The youngest one has a friend over and my child doesn’t want to share her tablet. I swear trying to talk sense into 7 y/o is like trying to reason with these people

  37. Seven year olds are easier to reason with. At least they have some. I know I’ve got one, well almost seven in 2 months that is. My “fiscally conservative, tinfoil hatted” neighbor however is completely devoid of reason whatsoever.
