Mike Lee (TP) Slams Obama’s Inequality Godzilla

From Breitbart:

Mike Lee’s Tea Party State of the Union Response: Obamacare ‘an Inequality Godzilla’

By Tony Lee | 28 Jan 2014

In his response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address that focused heavily on "inequality," Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) slammed Obamacare as "an inequality Godzilla," symbolizing an administration that has favored Washington, D.C. while purporting to fight for America’s middle class.

Maybe instead of (R-UT) that should read (TP-UT).

In an address sponsored by the Tea Party Express on Tuesday, Lee spoke for "those individuals and families who work hard, play by the rules, balance their budgets, honor the Golden Rule, and don’t understand why their government in Washington can’t do the same." He said these Americans "may feel they have been forgotten by both political parties."

"Today, Americans know in their hearts that something is wrong," he said. "Much of what is wrong relates to the sense that the ‘American Dream’ is falling out of reach for far too many of us. We are facing an inequality crisis—one to which the President has paid lip-service, but seems uninterested in truly confronting or correcting."

Lee said this "inequality crisis presents itself in three principal forms," and Republicans in Washington’s permanent political class can be just as out of touch as Democrats:

Immobility among the poor, who are being trapped in poverty by big-government programs; insecurity in the middle class, where families are struggling just to get by and can’t seem to get ahead; and cronyist privilege at the top, where political and economic insiders twist the immense power of the federal government to profit at the expense of everyone else.

Lee… slammed Obama for promising an "economy for the middle class" while delivering an "economy for the middle-men."

"Government-driven inequality is the reason why, as hard-working families across the country struggle to make ends meet, six of the ten wealthiest counties in America are now suburbs of Washington, D.C.," he said. "And tonight [Obama’s] party cheered as he asked for more of the same, as if the solution to inequality were. well, more inequality."

Lee slammed Obama for covering up the fact that he was leaving Americans behind with "lofty rhetoric" and then asked, "But where does this new inequality come from?"

"From government—every time it takes rights and opportunities away from the American people and gives them instead to politicians, bureaucrats, and special interests," he said.

Lee continued by saying that "real inequality" is "trapping poor children in failing schools to benefit bureaucrats and union bosses. It’s penalizing low-income parents for getting married, or getting better jobs. It’s guaranteeing insurance companies taxpayer bailouts if Obamacare cuts into their profits."

"And of course, Obamacare—all by itself—is an inequality Godzilla that has robbed working families of their insurance, their doctors, their wages and their jobs," he said. "Many Americans are now seeing why some of us fought so hard to stop this train-wreck over the last four years." …

Rep. Lee is entirely correct, of course. Obama has created his own brand of income inequality. That driven by crony government. Crony socialism.

Even the New York Times back in August 31st, reported that income inequality has actually increased at a rate four times faster under Obama than under his evil predecessor, President Bush. That is no accident.

In fact, wherever you see socialism in practice you will see income inequality run amuck. After all, at one time Leonid Brezshnev owned the largest most expensive exotic car collection in the world.

  1. It was a spot on, 100% response.

  2. USSFreedom

    But, but, but the free phone, unchecked fraud in the SNAP, Medicare and Union kick back programs and the all inclusive, except those in government, Obamacare fiasco which are all designed to keep the unequal (to the exalted, elete) voting 5-6 times for the party providing the freebies, while sweeping our freedoms into the oceans and all the while opening our borders and inviting those that cannot even read a ballot to adhere to the instructions of the paid interpreters on which boxes to check.
    I’m afraid It ain’t gonna turn out well until these Hope and Change policies are stopped and the guidelines set forth in the Constitution are followed by individuals fairly elected to serve in the People’s House.
