Barney Frank: Enemy to This Country


#1

NEW BEDFORD �?? After the November election, Democrats will push for a second economic stimulus package that includes money for the states' stalled infrastructure projects, along with help paying for healthcare expenses, food stamps and extended unemployment benefits, U.S. Rep. Barney Frank said Thursday.

In a meeting with the editorial board of The Standard-Times, Rep. Frank, D-Mass., also called for a 25 percent cut in military spending, saying the Pentagon has to start choosing from its many weapons programs, and that upper-income taxpayers are going to see an increase in what they are asked to pay.

The military cuts also mean getting out of Iraq sooner, he said.

"The people of Iraq want us out, and we want to stay over their "

States have many infrastructure projects �?? bridges, highways, etc. �?? that have been shut down because of a cash-flow problems, he said. So it is not the case that a stimulus will take months or years to wait for design and approval, since projects are already in progress or ready to go.

Also, he said, "we'll increase the federal share of medical care so states won't have to lay off people." Unemployment insurance benefits won't increase, he said, but the period of collecting them will, and eligibility requirements might be relaxed.

And, ultimately, there will be tax increases on the upper brackets. "We'll have to raise taxes ultimately. Not now, but eventually," he said.

Yeah but, that's how it works now.

Areas like defense with a constitutional mandate will have to be cut so the libs can continue paying off their step children with more unconstitutional socialist time bombs to get re-elected.

Let's get with it Bub, you're way too 19th century.

Barney Frank not afraid to surrender to our enemies, hes used to dropping to his knees.

Might, power, weapons, technology, missile systems will help protect us from todays enemy.

Social programs do not mean much if we are under attack....

Barney sucks and he's a terrible policy maker too.

Social programs are a domestic enemy that public servants swear to protect us from. They have and will continue to have a devastating effect on this country at all levels.

Along with Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Wexler, Kerry, Kennedy, Wrangel, Clinton, and a whole bunch of others, he's an abomination to everything this country was founded to be.

Frank is in the house, so every 2 years , but yes he is a loathsome creature.

Actually the best case scenario would be if Obama wins and launches another revolution of 94 by the midterms thus reducing his ability to inflict us with horrific judges for the last 2 years of what would hopefully and mercifully be his only term. I would prefer that over Mccain winning if I new beforehand it would happen.

That is one hefty dose of wishful thinking, but not beyond the realm of possibility. This guy with the leftists in control of both houses of congress is an apocalyptic disaster in the making. Actually as I've said, I'd vote for Obama if it weren't for the courts, just to let the sleeping sheep see what happens when you give the reigns fully over to your enemies.

I'm from his District in Mass ... I've personally think he's what's wrong with the political process in this country ... He's been in the House since 1981 (?) ... That tells me that a.) no one gives a shit in my district to vote his sorry ass the fuck out b.) not enough people understand that he's an ass hat or c.) I need to get off my ass and motivate these sorry sacks of shit in my district just how bad he is for this country...
