It's about scaring the hell out of Americans who think the government is about to collapse, dreading the thought of riots and anarchy, so they'll accept damn near anything, like gutting Medicaid, and slashing Medicare and Social Security.
Congress, the WH and especially those greedy JEW bankers that run the FED want to strangle the sick and elderly so they'll have plenty of money to play with, and to hell with you and yours. The 450 BILLION + we pay the FED each year is interest paid to those grave robbers for borrowing OUR OWN MONEY, yet you won't hear any of the slick talking heads on TalmudVision mentioning anything about the predatory FED.
Good thing President Fuck Head is appointing another JEW to head that racket, the 2nd greatest con job after the holocau$t.
And of course, come hell or high water, Israel is going to get its monthly welfare checks, while grandpa and grandma are wondering where in the hell the money to pay for overpriced medicine is going to come from.
Dear WWII Vets, Forget About the Monument, They Are Gunning for Your Social Security
As the government shutdown marches on and the dangerously real deadline of the federal debt limit approaches, it is increasingly clear that the fight over "Obamacare" is merely an opening salvo. The real goal of the hostage takers is a "Grand Bargain" on the budget that would include cuts to Social Security and Medicare.
This has been the long-term agenda for debt crisis-monger Pete Peterson and government haters David and Charles Koch for many decades. But now, after massively gerrymandering the electoral landscape in 2010, these manufactured crisis kings and backstage billionaires hold all the cards.
As if on cue, today in the Wall Steet Journal House Budget Chair Paul Ryan proposes "entitlement reforms" as a way out of the shutdown crisis.
Make no mistake, the kerfuffle over Obamacare is prelude.
House Speaker John Boehner took to the Sunday shows this past weekend, and the word "Obamacare" did not pass his lips. "It's time to talk about the spending problem," said Boehner. He wants to "rein in" the costs associated with "entitlement" programs, and he has two of the biggest -- Social Security and Medicare -- in his sights.
Kick the Can guy Wall Street billionaire Pete Peterson and his "Fix the Debt" wrecking crew are hard at work pushing for steep cuts in Social Security, Medicare, and other programs that keep millions of Americans out of poverty. CMD exposed Peterson and the "Fix the Debt" gang on the cover of The Nation in 2013.
Fix the Debt is just the latest Peterson-funded front group that has been trying to hype rapidly decreasing debt and deficits into a "Pearl Harbor"-level crisis. In 2007, Wall Street billionaire Peterson pledged $1 billion of his Blackstone Group fortune to fund groups that would make slashing "entitlement" programs a number one priority. Since then, he has funded almost every think tank, every bus tour, every propaganda movie and every "youth group" touting the responsible "shared sacrifice" line.
If we let those blood-sucking bastards get away with this latest theft, you can say 'Goodbye' permanently to the shrinking middle class.
Pete Peterson's Long History of Deficit ScaremongeringIf you want to see how vain this 87 yo jackoff is, go to his Wikipedia page and there you'll see a photo of 'Petey' from the 1970's.
Fix the Debt financier Peter G. Peterson knows a thing or two about debt: he’s an expert at creating it. Peterson founded the private equity firm Blackstone Group in 1985 with Stephen Schwarzman (who compared raising taxes to “when Hitler invaded Poland”). Private equity firms don’t contribute much to the economy; they don’t make cars or milk the cows. Too frequently, they buy firms to loot them. After a leveraged buyout, they can leave companies so loaded up with debt they are forced to immediately slash their workforce or employees’ retirement security.
"Journalists' like Diane Sawyer, Mort Zuckerman, Leslie Stahl, Peter Jennings, Barbara Walters just love to smooch 'Petey's' ass!
