Obama’s 2nd-term plans for your paycheck and combating global warming exposed

“The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments,” says this article on wnd.com.

“An explosive book released (on August 7) documents how progressive organizations behind White House policy have crafted specific, second-term plans for the federal government to determine the “value” of individual jobs in the private sector instead of allowing employers to pay what they want,” the article continues.

This is in addition to the enactment of a “living wage” that would force all employers to increase the salaries of the nation’s workers to meet “basic needs” such as housing, food, utilities, transportation, health care and recreation.

These schemes – including a new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy” – are documented in “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed.”

The book by New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott uncovers the template for Obama’s next four years – the actual, extensive plans created by Obama’s own top advisers and progressive strategists.

  1. first. I am NOT an obama fan.
    however I cannot believe that a mandated minimum wage to enable the basics to be afforded by the hard workers and least able to afford food accom fuel etc is being complained about??
    its on a par with the insane hysteria aboput health care.
    a tiny 1.5 or so percent of wages to a national health fund?
    to stop the people dying from lack of care, or becoming chronically ill due to inability to afford the rip off prices your Privatised health funds enforce?
    australias had a basic living wage and national contibuted health for decades.
    it works!
    I have just had the really nasty flu thats hit aus. I simply couldnt afford 75$ for the doc let alone 50 or so for antibiotics to fight the lung problems it gave me.Pension isnt that generous.
    without medicare I probably would have needed hospital care instead, later, for pnumonia, and sure couldnt have paid that bill either.
    better to subsidise a smaller amount and save huge bills or deaths.

    • Minimum wage was devised to price labor higher than the value that black laborers could provide. It still works that way today. Unions love it because their contracts are tied to minimum wage. Anyone who really provides value is getting paid many multiples of minimum wage. As for healthcare…it is an expensive service provided by individuals who spent years engaged in very expensive training. You have no right to take the value of their labor on the cheap. If you fail to pay them what it costs to cover that lifetime of expenses, you’ll have to settle for scarcity of services provided by poorly trained recruits. There is no free lunch. Doctors in the U.S. are already leaving their practices as the US government fails to pay them a break even reimbursement for their services. They can do better elsewhere…and they are doing just that.

    • The view of the US from AUS may be somewhat distorted. US workers already pay 2.9% of their pay to support a medicare program for the elderly that will go broke in 12 years. Obama is stealing $741 billion from that to support his schemes, thereby accelerating its bankruptcy. The other plans referred to in the article are just proposals that will never be enacted by the US Congress. But don’t worry,US voters will elect Romney-Ryan and a Republican Congress, and we will actually provide for the poor and elderly, grow jobs, and avoid bankruptcy.

  2. oh PS
    your military is OVER funded and over in every other nations back yards.
    we would appreciate your military staying home and minding your own business..
    libya incited BY usa
    Syria, incited and funded BY usa cia
    and a whole pile of other instances past and present..
    drones to go bother china now..
    and to spy on your own people.
    you really? think your taxes need to go for this?

    • You are absolutely correct, Laurel. By trying to (like the Romans) force our imperial ways upon the world, we have ended up actually harming America–not to mention millions of people around the world. We need to be able to defend our borders and not try to push our type of government down the throats of those who have no history or desire to have that type of government. Who dies and made the U.S. the saviors of the world?

  3. Hello Laura:

    Somebody has to cover the $75 cost of your medical bill. And just who might that be? Why not a private plan, as I have at $ 200/month plus co-pay of $ 20/visit? The main advantage is I don’t have to depend on the government.
    Sincerely, Sam in CA

  4. I was born and raised in Mexico.

    And I can assure you that two of the main issues that have held back Mexico development are:
    a) Minimum wages, and,
    b) State ran Social Security Program (Health and retirement related)

    We have been trying for years to change the Law in order to modernize those two monsters, with no luck (Political left is not interested in changing our Country for good)

    Saludos desde México!

  5. To enable an employee to buy a house one would have to raise the workers pay to the price of a house divided by equal to or less than 6000 man hours or 3 years pay to get an hourly rate. This would effectively be minimum wage for a working man. In Canada for example that means $50 to $60 an hour as an average due to our idiotic real estate prices. As you can imagine due to certain economic realities the real estate and construction industry has hit the wall for the lack of rich workers able to safely buy the product in question. That is what happens when you put the lid on wage rates and count two incomes for home buying. You get people taking foolish risks while having poor finances caused by low pay rates.
    For real estate the price has not bottomed out and there is still along way down before houses become affordable.

    • The problem is not house prices in terms of bricks and mortar, but in the rental value of the land on which the building stands. There are two great fiscal larcenies going on: the state theft of individual labour/enterprise–ie taxation and the private theft of publicly created Land Rental Value, by a veritable cabal of sectional landed vested interests. The solution is to abolish all direct tax on labour, enterprise and bricks&mortar and replace this with a 100% collection of 100% societally created LRV. Essentially we stop paying on what we do and make( including houses/factories and instead switch public revenue to collecting on what we hold and take of the land that was not created by any human being, had no production costs and has no capital value.

  6. Read Laurel’s comments closely. It is a great example of “I am entitled to this.” This is why our country is dying. Everyone believes they are entitles to government this government that. I make 65k a year and pay over 1/3 of my income in taxes. come January when the Bush tax cuts expire the Obamacare taxes start as well as Dodd-Frank Taxes start. I will pay over 45% of my income in taxes. My son who is in college and since he is male and white does not qualify for any grants or low income loans. so he and I are both working to pay cash for his education. You don’t here us crying where is mine, we are entitled. Lazy and entitled people in this country are really making me sick.

  7. When everyone says “raise the minimum wage so the workers can afford more” often an example is McDonald’s where a starting worker is paid minimum wage and really can’t afford to eat there except from their dollar menu. However, what they don’t like to remind everyone of is the simple fact that labor is more than 50% of the cost of that burger so, when the wages go up so does the cost of the burger – no effective change in what the bottom tier of employee can buy. It is the same in every industry, cost of production is largely labor so if you raise the cost of labor, you raise the cost of the product. Most industries think they are doing well if their profit (after costs and taxes) is 1/2 to 1 % of income. It may be a lot in dollars but not a huge percentage. Except for some extremely overpaid CEO’s most workers are paid what their employers can afford.

  8. We needto bring our troops home, all of them, We have not had a declared (legal) war since WWII. Without a declared war, we have no need of military at all. We need to close most of the federal governemt and the federal reserve. Governments do nt create jobs, people needing to have somethign done that have the money and inclination to hire sommone to do something creates jobs. We humans are not doing any damage to the ecosystems. This is just the latest face of communism.
