Many of us who watch movies remember the 1996 romantic comedy-drama film titled Jerry Maguire.
Jerry Maguire — played by Tom Cruise — is a stressed-out sports agent who later suffers a nervous breakdown as a result of a guilty conscience, and eventually writes a mission statement about perceived dishonesty in the sports management business. (If this sounds similar to the Contract With America, it is purely unintentional…)
He rewrites the Mission Statement at SMI and how he believes the sports management business should be operated. He distributes copies of it to his co-workers, entitled “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business”. His co-workers are touched by his honesty and greet him with applause, but the management don’t have the same sense of excitement as their subordinates, and they send Bob Sugar (Jay Mohr), Maguire’s protégé, to fire him.
Well, things don’t go so well, so Jerry and Bob devise a plan to call all of Jerry’s clients and convince them not to hire the services of the competitors. Jerry speaks to Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), one of his clients who is disgruntled with his contract. Tidwell tests Jerry’s resolve through a very long telephone conversation, which culminates in the famed “” scene.
Meanwhile, Bob Sugar secures most of Jerry’s previous clients and even brings on another superstar football prospect expected to be #1 in the NFL Draft.
Now, we have the Democrats in Washington kicking into full campaign mode (when have they ever kicked OUT of campaign mode?), attacking Republican Budget Chair Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) plan to help end our government’s spending binge and help create a better environment for job creation in America.
But whose budget is best for America–President Obama’s or Congressman Paul Ryan’s?
Well, this is where the problem is: where is Obama’s budget?
So far, we haven’t seen one, and what “appears” to be a budget (on the surface) has yet to appeal to the public like Maguires new mission statement.
Should our government spend money we don’t have? Or, should it tighten its belt like the rest of us?
It’s ultimately your decision, and if you don’t like the way things are going in D.C. nowadays, you can do something about it come November 2012: vote Obama out of office.
Give him the “heave-ho.”
Tell him, in words that Donald Trump is so noted for: “You’re fired!”
If you want jobs to come back, then you need to know that Washington can’t create jobs. Only achievers, businesses, and those gawd awful rich people (and a few “evil” oil companies) are the only ones who can create jobs. The majority of jobs in the country are created by small businesses — “mom and pop” shops and entrepreneurs.
Congressman Ryan has proposed a budget that cuts $6.2 trillion in spending over the next 10 years, helping the private sector to create jobs today and putting America on a path to pay off our national debt. This plan contains tax code reforms that will grow our economy while protecting critical health and retirement programs for future generations.
And contrary to the lies of the Liberal Marxists in the Democrat Party, they won’t be putting Grandma out on the street and they’re not going to mess with Medicare.
When are you Democrat Kool-Aid drinkers going to realize that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama are playing you like a Georgia fiddle, making you do the Plantation Cha-Cha?
Meanwhile, the President presented Congress with a budget that looks like the recent forgery he gave us for his birth certificate. It fails to answer a lot of questions, and it fails to address the drivers of our debt while raising taxes by $1.5 trillion, a surefire recipe for destroying jobs in America.
The Democrats’ budget calls for more “stimulus” spending, more taxing and more borrowing — all of which will make it harder for the private sector to create jobs.
How does is make it harder for private sector to create jobs? Because when the private sector see the tax hikes, they just take their jobs somewhere else… like China or India… or Mexico.
So you decide.
Does Obama have a legitimate budget for America?
To date… no.
Do the Republicans have a better solution?
Is it perfect? No. Nothing is. But it’s a far cry better than stealing more money out of your pocket to give to ne’er-do-wells who won’t get off their asses and become productive.
The national debt has now surpassed $14.2 trillion and will soon eclipse the size of our entire economy. The President and House Republicans have starkly different visions on how to address this looming debt crisis: higher vs. lower taxes, more spending or less, an empowered Washington vs. a free people.
The choice is yours. Do you want to live “for the day?” Or do you want to leave something of value to your children and grandchildren? You can make America great again and let your voice be heard in the next election. But you can also let your voice be heard today by calling your Congressman or Congresswoman, and your Senators and let them know your concerns.
Or you can sit back and be a part of the Silent Majority and let Obama and his Marxist cronies put the shaft to you.
