Giving Senior Citizens "The Treatment"
Ben Thinks If He Can Scare Them, He Can Control Them...
Ben Chandler, King of Mediscare
One of my pet peeves about Ben Chandler is his disingenuous treatment of the older Americans. His fundraising letters are full of threats which are simply NOT TRUE! Dripping with false respect, he lies to scare them into voting for him, as well as financially supporting his campaign. A tough accusation, you say? Agreed! But it is not made casually.
Following is a sampling of the doomsday predictions from his letters. NEVER - not even once - does Ben tell seniors that proposed changes DO NOT AFFECT THEIR BENEFITS! All Republican proposals make changes only for those under 55 years of age, but Ben fails to mention that. If you want to see the letters in their entirety, click here.
Excerpts From Ben's Letters
8/31/2010 GOP proposes "privatizing Social Security benefits and putting them in the hands of Wall Street. We can't allow them to take away crucial benefits from Kentucky's seniors in the name of profits."
4/7/2011 "Republicans are putting in permanent tax breaks for the super rich and saddling our seniors with the cost. Seniors could lose the guaranteed benefits they earned under Medicare and the support that helps seniors in nursing homes..."
Ben Chandler Declares:
A Few People are Hoarding
Most of the Wealth in this Country
Ben Has Increased His Obama-style Class Warfare Rhetoric
The following video was taken Oct. 15, 2012 at a Chandler campaign stop.
Here was Chandler in July 2011, spouting the same line
The wealthy aren't feeling enough pain.
They need to pay their fair share!
"How can you be in favor of those people
continuing to hoard most of the wealth in this country...?"
In an appearance on WKYT's "Kentucky Newsmakers" Saturday, July 2, Ben laid out his "Share the Wealth" program, sounding like Huey Long, minus the charisma.
Ben asserted that a few are hoarding too much wealth, putting the debt unfairly on the backs of the poor and elderly.
You heard Ben, now listen to Huey and hum along with his theme song, "Every Man a King".
"There'll be peace without end, every neighbor a friend..."
Who owns your paycheck...you or the government? Redistribution is not just about "the wealthy". It goes to the very core of private ownership of assets, affecting every American. Read more....
Why Are We Looking At Such High Taxes?
Because There's Ben Big Spending!!!
Ben Chandler, the Imperial Spender, elite and untouchable, helped DOUBLE the national debt during his tenure...so far. He blames it all on Bush, but Ben has been there 7+ years, with Bush and now Obama, continually spending.. SPENDING... SPENDING!
You see, Congress holds the purse strings. Bush couldn't spend a dime without their approval! Neither can Obama!
Ben blames deficit on unemployment, Bush tax cuts:
The US Credit rating has been lowered 3 different times. The US has NEVER been downgraded until Obama, with Chandler's help, swung into full spending mode. Read more about it here...
Ben has danced all around the issue of federal funding for abortion, but this legislative session his message was clear: Your taxpayer dollars SHOULD be used to fund abortion.
Ben Chandler voted against H.R. 3: "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" on May 4, 2011. H.R. 3 permanently bans use of federal dollars to pay for abortion.
On Feb. 18, 2012, Ben also voted to federally fund Planned Parenthood. In 2009, Planned Parenthood performed 324,008 abortions. Ben voted to force you to provide 1/3 of their funding, by voting "No" on the Mike Pence amendment to Continuing Appropriations Bill H. R. 1, which stated that no federal funds should be given to PP.
Ben failed to cast a vote on a bill that would ban using abortion as a means for selecting the sex of a child. For that information, plus undercover footage at Planned Parenthood clinics, click here.
Very Thought Provoking Message
From Susan B. Anthony List
Admitting that tax increases do indeed kill business, Ben sought better treatment for the bourbon industry. In October 2009, Ben declared that bourbon producers are overtaxed. A year and a half later, in May 2011, Chandler cosponsored the Aged Distilled Spirits Competitiveness Act, which proposed a more favorable tax code for the industry.
Tax Breaks Are Great...
So why can't everybody have them?
Why did Ben single out only one industry for such favorable treatment? If, as Chandler admits, tax breaks are good for business, why not give them to every industry?The answer lies in the book - the deposit book for Ben's campaign accounts. Donors tend to be treated more favorably than non-donors. Read more here.... and here.
Ben Chandler on Barack Obama:
"I Think He Knows What He's Doing."
Transformation of America, Step One: Destruction
The first steps of "moving forward" require destruction of private industry, property, and individual freedom. Barack Obama calls this "Fundamental Transformation". Ben Chandler calls it "Progress." Whatever you call it, the result is the same: American Rubble...
Separated at Birth?
Charles Durning or Ben Chandler...???
"Oooo, I love to dance a little sidestep..." Enjoy!!!
"What did he say?"
"Same as usual...not a dang thing!"
