Obama and the Global Poverty Act

The Dems are coo-coo for Coco Puffs, and for any piece of legislation with Obama's name on it. If Obama is elected president, he is sure to pass his little pet project piece of legislation called the Global Poverty Act (S. 2433) There is more to Obama's kumbaya attitudes and platitudes "While the 20th century taught us that we share a common destiny, the 21st has revealed a world more intertwined than at any time in human history." He wants to tax us out the nose. "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Below is an excerpt from an article at IBDeditorials.com (full article found here)

"It calls for the "eradication of poverty" in part through the "redistribution (of) wealth of land" and "a fair distribution of the earth's resources." In other words: American resources.

It's a mantra of liberals that the U.S. is only a small portion of the world's population yet consumes an unseemly portion of the planet's supposedly finite resources. Never mentioned is the fact that America's population, just 5% of the world's total, also produces a stunning 27% of the world's GDP — to the enormous benefit of other countries. Nonetheless, their solution is to siphon off the product of our free democracy and distribute it.

We already transfer too much national wealth to the United Nations and its busybody agencies. Obama's bill would force U.S. taxpayers to fork over 0.7% of our gross domestic product every year to fund a global war on poverty, spending well above the $16.3 billion in global poverty aid the U.S. already spends.

Over a 13-year period, from 2002, when the U.N.'s Financing for Development Conference was held, to the target year of 2015, when the U.S is expected to meet its part of the U.N. Millennium goals, we would be spending an additional $65 billion annually for a total of $845 billion.

During a time of economic uncertainty, the plan would cost every American taxpayer around $2,500."

There is a reason he has no lead in the polls, even though he travels the globe acting like he has already won, and for all the media is concerned, he can do nothing wrong. He is a moron, and he is in bed with the liberals. He is not a centrist folks, he is a leftist, and there is no hiding it.
