It is not an Executive Order nor Action signed by President Obama! It is an appropriation revision act amending the 1986 code “Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act.” The law passed in both the House and Senate back in Sept 2010…Touché’ for Democracy!
What is wrong with Democracy working in America these days? It appears to have lost favor in America since November 2008, when the majority of voting Americans elected its first non-white President.
I read H.R.2847 for myself. Every literate American should do so and for those who can not read have someone read it to you.
Of course, it turns out not the doom and gloom–American dollar deflator professed by TEAGOP misinformation fear rhetoric, and obstructionism; too many Americans swallow on a daily basis these past six years. Their political tactics are designed to exploit and manipulate the average Joe Americans learned prejudice against other fellow Americans not of their race, creed, and religion.
The average Joe (Black, White, or Brown) does not have a foreign bank account or trust set up in other countries to escape income taxes. We pay our fair share of taxes with each hard-earned payroll to raise healthy families. In addition, secure a sound future in a country the world people want to come and become citizens.
Yea its true and rightfully so, Joe feels over taxed because Joe knows for a certainty that Zillionaires hide their money off shore, so not to pay taxes on income generated mostly from Joe’s hard labor which Joe’s don’t mind because hard work in the past has rewarded in the American society. Nevertheless, Joe’s have felt the squeeze on their hard earn dollars. His hard-earned dollars have not kept pace with inflation the past 30 years or so. Joe’s problem is he is not sure whom to blame; self, the Govt, the rich, or maybe in Joe’s mind, it is the poor at fault for America’s woes today.
Here comes Obama in 2008. Somebody or something said blame America’s woes on Obama. Joe’s accepts the finger-pointing, hook line and sinker. He will do for now until “hopefully” America comes out of this great recession that is smothering the economy. However, somebody or something knows exactly what is at fault for America present economic woes. Good old fashion “BANKER’s GREED” is in full and pouring its abundant misery on the entire global society. However, here in America, politics has cast its first elected non-White President as responsible for the past 30 to 40 year catch-up economic crash.
Therefore, I have been seriously confused these past 6 years since Obama took office. The racism and hatred directed towards his administration, him and his family from TEAGOP members and supporters does not confuse me (I expected this type of hostile political and societal environment for Americas first Non-White President), but the average American Joe level of gullibility is easily sway by stupid misinformation designed to turn them against American democracy is astounding.
Over all American’s issues, we need to stop acting like children fighting over whose best at coloring with crayons, or whether to color the paper horse black or white.
If America is destined to fall, it will not be the powers and military force of a foreign country. It will self-destruct from within as it is doing. America’s enemies only have to be patient, and watch American citizens, rich and poor, turn on each other, and tear down the country they swear they love.
