Today the Obama campaign launched an effort to get grandkids to lie to their grandparents. It’s in the form an e-card titled “Get Grandma’s Back” that the Obama campaign wants grandkids to send to their retired elders.
The Obama campaign alleges that Mitt Romney’s tax cut plan would raise taxes on retirement benefits. It’s every bit as factual as the administration’s recent claim that the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi was a “spontaneous” protest, not a terrorist attack. ObamaCare has already raided Medicare for over $700 billion, and it has already raised taxes on the middle class despite Barack Obama’s promise not to do that. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who should have been fired for violating the Hatch Act, has been stonewalling Congress about the Medicare cuts. Where’s the e-card for all that? Where’s the condolences e-card for the all the jobs that ObamaCare has killed or aborted?
A more honest card would have the president apologizing to today’s 20somethings and their future children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren for running up the national debt so fast that it has reached an unsustainable $16 trillion. You can’t send an e-card to someone who hasn’t been born yet, but you can saddle them with debt they’ll have to pay off in the form of taxes.
