Obama's new AMEX card increases debt by $328 billion in one day

Is there a danger to America greater than our massive $17 trillion debt?

WASHINGTON. October 19, 2013. – On Thursday, the debt went up by $328 billion.  In one day, the government borrowed $328 billion! Like a real housewife of Beverly Hills, having just been given a brand new American Express black card, the Obama Administration wasted absolutely no time at all.

To put that in perspective, in 2007 the deficit for the entire year was only $161 billion.  The budget for 2007 was the last budget that was passed by a Republican Congress before it was voted out in the 2006 elections.

The Obama Administration is not spending money to build America. The military is not being built up.  Roads, highways and bridges are not being built in record numbers.  There is nothing for real Americans in this record spending.

So where is that money going?

Part of that money is going to fund liberal groups. Obamacare may not work as a healthcare system but it is turning into a massive slush fund and full employment agency for liberal activists.

Navigators are given unprecedented access to the information the government has on any American foolish enough to apply for Obamacare. Navigators get access to tax information, financial information and social security information.  In short, navigators get access to all of the information needed for identity theft.

Navigators are not subject to a background check or to a criminal history check. In Kansas, an illegal alien activist who earlier this year helped storm the home of Kansas Secretary of State Chris Kobach has been hired as an “Obamacare navigator.” 

In New York, an illegal alien was hired as an Obamacare navigator.

What does happen to a real American who is a victim of identity theft from an Obamacare navigator?

As long as Obamacare can be a massive slush fund for liberal activists, the Obama Administration does not care what happens to real Americans. They are simply on their own. 

Not all of the money is going to slush funds.  There are the occasional bribes that are necessary, such as the $3 billion dollar earmark for a Kentucky Dam for Mitch McConnell as he surrendered to the Obama Administration.

America’s debt has now shot over $17 trillion. Debtors never prosper. That is a firm rule of economics. 

It applies to individuals, corporations and to nations as well.  America is drowning in debt. 

But America has a much more serious problem.

Thanks to the Republican surrender caucus, the insane spending antics of the Obama Administration are only going to get worse.  It would be one thing if the GOP had fought the Obama Administration and lost.  They did not even try.

Now, with Mitch McConnell, three months away from the next budget deadline already assuming the Republican position of preemptive surrender, Barack Obama knows he can demand any spending amount he wants and he will get it.

We are seeing an unprecedented shift in power from the Congress, where our founding fathers wanted the majority of power to reside, to the Executive branch.

Barack Obama may be the most powerful President America has ever seen.  He relentlessly pushes the boundaries of power and the Republican surrender caucus simply acquiesces. 

The Obama administration, through its various agencies, has expanded rule-making power beyond anything Congress contemplated.  As the Obama Administration wastes money, expands its power at the expense of Congress and thumbs its nose at Congress and Congress’ oversight authority, the Republicans simply and meekly surrender.

Debt is a great danger to this nation.

A greater danger is a cowardly opposition party that is more interested in being bribed with benefits from the public treasury than standing for principle.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
