However, the folks at the “Hill” gave the title, “Black Caucus Sets up Own Debt Panel” to the article below written by Bernie Becker. The “Black Caucus” is a racially segregated (by choice), often racist in rhetoric and politics organization of the Democrat Party in Congress. It makes noise and otherwise intimidates looking for every larger pandering policies and dollars. People like Maxine Waters from California and Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri belong to the group
The Becker article begins with: “The Congressional Black Caucus, not totally satisfied with recent commissions focused on reducing the national debt, has set up one of their own.
The newly formed commission had its first – and, at this time, only scheduled – meeting on Friday, where it discussed how proposals from groups like the president’s bipartisan fiscal commission would have an impact on minority communities.
“A glaring omission from various debt reports is a thoughtful analysis of how their recommendations will affect the nation’s most economically vulnerable populations,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.), the chairman of the CBC, said at Friday’s gathering. ”
Comment: Representative Cleaver shows his racism here. This is a racially segregated caucus solely interested in what we call these day “African-Americans. To use Rep. Cleaver’s words and knowing the goals of his racially driven caucus, he implies by his above statement that “the natiion’s most economically vulnerable populations” are blacks.
This is a racist statement if for no other reason it is a statement dividing the poor by race. For, it is the poor, I believe the non-racist Americans would agree, who are “the nation’s most economically vulnerable populations”.
Mr. Cleaver’s honesty (see backpedalling below) was accurately challenged this past spring when he made false charges of racism against Tea Party Americans, a non-segregated group, which gathered in the nation’s capital to protest the ObamaCare coup takeover of the American health industry.
As you continue reading this article, ask yourselves why does the Congress of the United States of America condone a racist, racially motivated caucus to conduct its racist business in its midst?
Mr. Becker continues: “Stephanie Young, a spokeswoman for the caucus, said its commission would submit a report and recommendations to Congress and the Obama administration before the president releases his budget, which is scheduled to happen in mid-February. Young also indicated that the caucus did not reach out to either the White House or congressional leaders before forming their group.
The caucus’ debt commission comes as officials in Washington are discussing a variety of deficit reduction ideas. In his State of the Union address, President Obama proposed a five-year freeze of non-security discretionary spending.
Groups of Republicans, meanwhile, have called for setting spending at 2006 or 2008 levels. And on the Senate side, Sens. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.) have have talked up legislation modeled after the recommendations from the president’s debt commission.
On Friday, some panelists at the CBC commission meeting – which included officials from the Urban Institute and the Aspen Institute and academics from Duke and Johns Hopkins – appeared skeptical of deficit reduction plans that would roll back spending and investment aimed at creating jobs.
“We know that the recession has had a disparate impact on people of color, African- Americans especially,” said Maya Rockeymoore, the director of Leadership for Healthy Communities. ”We have higher unemployment, we have higher rates of foreclosure, we have higher poverty levels.”
In her prepared remarks for Friday’s meeting, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) also called it regrettable that the current belt-tightening talk did not seem to apply to the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan or to the compromise last year that extended the Bush tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans and installed new estate tax provisions.
Officials who have been pushing deficit reduction have said their proposals would include ideas that upset some people or groups.
Warner, for instance, told a Virginia news outlet that part of the appeal of his proposal with Chambliss was that it was a plan “where everybody can say, ‘I don’t like a lot of it, but the sum of the good it does is worth the pain it will cost.’”
With all that in mind, one member of Obama’s deficit commission has applauded the CBC’s move to add to that discussion.
“The president’s fiscal commission established one very important principle: everything must be on the table when it comes to planning a prudent course for our nation’s economic future,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), who ended up voting to not move the commission’s recommendations forward, said in a statement. “I commend the Congressional Black Caucus for working to lay before us another credible option to achieve our fiscal goals.”
Further comment: Shouldn’t the MAIN lesson from this article be that this is a good time FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DEMAND AN END TO RACIST ORGANIZATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS?
If you agree, please write to your representatives TODAY to help put an end to RACISM in America.
(A special thanks goes to Cole in California for alerting me to this issue.)
*backpedaling…Rep. Cleaver set off a tsunami wave out of the main stream media when he claimed people spat upon him and called out nigger as Democrat Party black Representatives walked through a large group of Tea Party activists near the nation’s capitol, last March protesting Obama’s signing the controversial ObamaCare bill.
Leftists everywhere had a Bonanza Party spreading the rumor which was a complete LIE. Fortunately, modern technology, that is, countless protestors recorded the event and not a one could back up Representative’s claim. No racial slurs of anykind were heard by anyone.
In addition a $10,000 reward was offered to anyone who could come up with evidence that a slur was shouted by anyone in the large group.
No one came forward. A few days later came the following:
