Stop the presses; Obama is cutting energy assistance for the poor. That’s HEAP for all those Obama supporters who are incapable of doing the math.
So much for the free gas, homes, money and the idea that Obama supporters would not have to work. Well, actually you do not have to work because there are no jobs.
After all, that is why some people sold their vote; for all of the free stuff they were promised.
“President Obama’s proposed 2012 budget will cut several billion dollars from the government’s energy assistance fund for poor people, officials briefed on the subject told National Journal.
It’s the biggest domestic spending cut disclosed so far, and one that will likely generate the most heat from the president’s traditional political allies. That would satisfy the White House, which has a vested interest in convincing Americans that it is serious about budget discipline.
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP, would see funding drop by about $3 billion from an authorized 2009 total of $5.1 billion. The proposed cut will not touch the program’s emergency reserve fund, about $590 million, which can be used during particularly harsh cold snaps or extended heat spells, three officials told National Journal.
In 2010, Obama signed into law an omnibus budget resolution that released a total of about $5 billion in LIHEAP grants for 2011. Pointing to the increasing number of Americans who made use of the grants last year, advocates say that LIHEAP is already underfunded. The American Gas Association predicts that 3 million Americans eligible for the program won’t be able to receive it unless LIHEAP funding stays at its current level.”
The anointed one giveth and he taketh away, suckers.
Well now that the left’s precious messiah is going to cut their energy assistance program, I ask, how do you like the anointed one now moonbats?
Perfect example of how the left manipulates, throw the peons the sliver of a bone and reel them in. Once they are yours, betray and destroy. Moonbats, you should have known better. After all, it is for the greater good of the collective. Cutting the deficit has nothing to do with it because Obama is still trying to spend like a man gone mad. Anything so that he could realize his precious New World Order agenda.
Rather than accept accountability for this decision, the left will tell their clueless and gullible supporters that the right, the tea party and grumpy old white men will not allow Obama to do anything. Lies, all lies. Obama is doing everything he wants. The dictator is ruling by fiat.
For the moonbats who have not figured it out yet, this is what you get with socialism. You starve. You freeze to death. You are lucky if you have a roof over your head and you do not have a job. Worst of all, you are manipulated, denied your voice, locked down, controlled and dictated to. This is what MOONBATS voted for and it is going to hurt.
Unfortunately, seniors will be hit the hardest by the elimination of this program but then Obama could care less about seniors and so it is not a problem for him.
