We pay Obama’s free advertising


It’s an “Obamanation” how our President is getting credit for programs linked to his name while we pay the cash for his free advertising.

One example is the “Obama Phone” given to the less than fortunate who receives them at no cost. The truth is those more financially fortunate are tapped for the costs of the “Obama Phone,” not the federal government.

This is because telecom companies, by federal law, may choose to collect the amount they are required to contribute through a “Universal Service Fund” from their subscribers.

My AT&T bill shows a “Federal Universal Service Charge” of $3.06 each month. Do you think we can write this $36 a year off as a legal donation?

No, and since we can’t deduct it let’s at least call it like it is: “The Lifeline Program” and stop giving President Obama free advertising credit with groups of voters he is coddling while we pay the cash.

The other example is “ObamaCare.” Even Mitt Romney fell into that trap during the debate, once again given ownership and free advertising to the masses for the President.

The “Affordable Care Act” is Obama’s Presidential campaign train fueled by citizen taxes. What does paying 3.8 percent tax on the capital gains sale of my house have to do with healthcare except to fund another “Obamanation” put on responsible working class Americans?

Wait, it only applies to those with incomes over $200,000. Wait, didn’t the government apply a similar stop to Social Security 0f 3 percent of the first $3,000 in 1949?

First sell them the wagon, then sell them the wheels – now hang on for the ride on the “Obamanation” wagon train.
