Obama Says The Sky Is Falling And It Can’t Get Up

Unless he gets another tax hike--like just happened a month ago—Obama claims we’re all in danger.

Not only does President Obama claim the sky is falling, he also says it can’t get up.

Unless he gets another tax hike–like just happened a month ago—Obama claims we’re all in danger.

While still pretending that he’s cut federal spending dramatically—which is totally false—Obama says hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose their health care access.

He claims tens of thousands of parents will lose childcare.

He claims FBI agents will be laid off and criminals will be turned loose. And Obama says there’s no escape, because air traffic control will be a mess.

There are better ways to handle scheduled slowdowns in spending—the sequester—Obama ignores them and now he’s trying to make public safety and our military take the hit.

The question is not whether the sky is falling, but whether we are going to fall for Obama’s scare tactics.
