Obama's policies are harming America

President Obama, after listening to your income inequality speech, I have concluded you’re trying to remove attention from unpopular Obamacare and its abysmal failures. You certainly don’t know what the American dream is. Income equality doesn't define the American dream; it never has. Please stop trying to redefine the term.

 There have been many people start out with next to nothing and became successful and wealthy; all because they had an idea and the willingness to work hard. It is your freedom stealing and job killing polices that strangle the American dream, not income inequality. The American dream is about opportunity, freedom, and the government getting out of the way, instead of crushing opportunity with anti-business socialism.

 For example, your freedom stealing Obamacare tax is without question killing the American dream for many. As does your discriminatory exemptions to your rich buddies and the unions who helped fill your campaign coffers! Just how do you justify your policy of unequal under the law? There can be no equality when some are exempted by your decree. Please exempt my long time auto mechanic will you, because your Obamacare tax is about to drive him out of business. They were never getting rich but making a decent living and you are stomping on their opportunity to have the American dream. Is it too much to ask that a small businessman be able to provide for his family and maybe save a little for retirement? In case you don't realize it, your unconstitutional power abuse is harming America and killing dreams! Mr. President, you are a leader who gains by manipulating people’s emotions and prejudices with deceptions and lies; it is despicable the way you divide the country.

    Mr.German, I can believe had badly your life has been affected from the moment Obama got elected. It must be very very bad. Could you do us a favor and make a list of how directly your life has been disrupted negatively by him. I would like to check it against mine. thank you

    And how is that different than any other president. As well as Bush LYING nuclear weapons found and letting his buddy (Osama bin Laden's brother) out of the country when towers got hit. Are you just trying to be ignorant. ~ really

    You'll miss him when he's gone though. Might finally have to confront your withering political minority status with a white president stomping on your dreams and stealing freedom. Happy Holidays, Clinton 2016, got you some more redefined stuff cause I heard you like that.

    Mike C is in denial and what has the last forty years. And just how do you know the letter writer didn't write when Bush was in office? Are we to believe you know! LOL Mike C. claims he knows there was a guy by that name who crossed the picket line Firestone... what 20 years ago now and you remember??? Hahahahahaha

    During the Bush years 65% of all personal income gains went to the top 1% of the population. Under liar-in-chief Obama it is upwards of 85%. The top 1% has seen an average 12% gain in personal income, the rest of the nation has gone up by only 1-2 percent, after inflation. That's how much the Obamanation loves the middle class.
    ObamaCare is drying up full time jobs and forcing millions into part-time employment. Gallup says that 9.1% of Americans now work part-time but would like full time jobs.
    Since the first of the year, there are 152,000 fewer and 400,000 more part-time jobs in our economy. Income inequality caused by Obama policies.

    Why else would that happen? Since this trend wasn't evident in ’10, ’11, or ’12, the cause is obviously the ObamaCare’s tax that companies with 50 or more full time workers offer health insurance or face a $2,000 per worker per year fine. Firms all over America are cutting back on full time workers and replacing them with part-timers to get in under the fifty worker ceiling. The AFL-CIO has stated this trend as the “death” of the forty hour workweek.
    Obama is not the solution. He is the cause of the problem of income inequality.... Obama never tires of lying, just like people like Mike C. never tire blaming Bush.

    Mike C., how did Mr German bash the unions?? What did he say that false??? The unions did contribute heavily to Obama and many union members have exemptions. Why are you so afraid of the truth.....

    Maybe the letter writer needs to do some research and check what wages have done in the past 40 years...................and see who is keeping up with inflation and who is not. Funny did the writer think it was ok when Bush/Cheney gave their buddies breaks like no bid contracts for Halliburton and their buddies??? And bashing unions..................there was a guy by this name that crossed the line at Firestone when they were on strike.........
