|OBAMA'S BROKEN PROMISES|
Here it is in an easy to read nutshell for you...
Broken promise No. 1: 'Sunlight Before Signing'
Obama promised, "When there is a bill that ends up on my desk as the president, you the public will have five days to look online and find out what's in it before I sign it."
He already signed several bills, we saw none of them.
Broken promise No. 2: Capital gains tax elimination
Obama promised to "eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses."
Obama's $787 billion economic-stimulus package does not eliminate it.
Broken promise No. 3: New American jobs tax credit
Obama promised to provide a $3,000 refundable tax credit to existing businesses for every additional full-time U.S. employee hired.
Obama's promise was never included in the stimulus package.
Broken promise No. 4: Hiatus on 401(k) penalties
Obama promised to allow financially distressed Americans to withdraw up to $10,000 from their 401(k) accounts and retirement savings without having to pay penalties.
Obama's promise was never included in his recent stimulus package.
Broken promise No. 5: 'No jobs for lobbyists'
Obama promised America he would loosen the grip of lobbyists on Washington.
William J. Lynn III - recent lobbyist for Raytheon
William Corr - tobacco lobbyist
He allowed at least two dozen exceptions and broke his promise.
Broken promise No. 6: Earmark reform
Obama declared, "I will go line by line to make sure that we are not spending money unwisely."
Obama signed a $410 billion omnibus bill for 2009 with more than 9,000 earmarks in the spending bill total an estimated $7.7 billion.
Broken promise No. 7: Bring troops home in 16 months
Pentagon officials have said fresh units will continue deploying to Iraq.
Broken promise No. 8: Sign 'Freedom of Choice Act'
Obama told the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, "The first thing I'd do as president is, is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do."
Obama has made no mention of the legislation since he took office.
Broken promise No. 9: $4,000 college credit
Obama pledged to make college "affordable for all Americans" when he announced his American Opportunity Tax Credit.
The $4,000.00 college credit was not included in his recent stimulus package.
Broken promise No. 10: Transparency
The Obama administration claims it will be "the most open and transparent in history."
Congress and the administration hurried the $787 billion, 1,027-page American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to a vote after allowing lawmakers no time to read the bill.
Tax evasion by Obama nominees is evidence that the administration is not as transparent as promised.
Obama characterized his eight-year tax evasion of $26,000 in back taxes and interest due since 2001 and 2002 as "an innocent mistake."
As many as five of his picks defaulted on taxes, including Tom Daschle, Nancy Killefer, Ron Kirk, and Hilda Solis.
Obama's released Certification of Live Birth is not his original 1961 birth certificate. His campaign posted a "Certification of Live Birth" online, but it is not the same as a Hawaii birth certificate. "A Certification of Live Birth" is issued by the State of Hawaii to parents whose children are not born in that State.
Broken promise No. 11: Executive signing statements
Obama criticized President Bush for issuing "signing statements, that's not part of [the president's] power," Obama told an audience in a recorded video claiming it was a violation of the Constitution for the president to attach signing statements to signed bills.
On March 11, Obama attached a signing statement to a $410 billion government spending bill, even as he signed it into law.
Obama's signing statement modified, interpreted and even dismissed dozens of statutes of the bill, including a section limiting his ability to put U.S. troops under United Nations command.
How long can you look the other way and deny the obvious facts?
