Don't Let Them Spend Our Money!
by Marilyn Mackenzie
I got a message from GOPUSA today that deserves some attention.Â The information provided was also a part of the EXPOSEOBAMA.com website.Â (Check out that website for a list of Obama's beliefs and proposed policies.)
Here's some of what the email said:
"The Global Poverty Act of 2007 (S.2433) is coming up for a Senate vote... Â according the office of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. Once Harry Reid and the Democrat leadership put it onthe calendar, we could have as little as a week to prepare for the vote."- Lee Cary, The American Thinker
If Cary is right, Senator Barack Hussein Obama's only major legislative accomplishment as a United States Senator -- which according to some conservative leaders is potentially an $845 billion United Nations give away of your hard-earned tax dollars -- could be coming up for a stealth vote when Congress rolls back into town!
Is it really possible that our federal legislators are planning to pass Barack Hussein Obama's Global Poverty Act while they think we aren't looking?
And just how much is $845 billion?
Vincent Gioia, writing in Right Side News, translates this incomprehensible figure into language every American can understand:
"This amounts to a tax of over $2,000 on each man, woman and child in the United States. The foreign aid budget now stands at $300 billion; the Act would add the additional expenditure to the already huge amount allocated to assist the world."
Where do you suppose they'll get the $845 billion?
Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs of Columbia University -- Director of the UN Millennium Project and Special Advisor to United NationsÂ -- knows EXACTLY WHERE -- "through a global tax preferably on carbon-emitting fossil fuels."
He doesn't mean a tax on gasoline, does he?Â
OH YES HE DOES!
He doesn't mean a GLOBALÂ TAX, does he?Â
OH YES HE DOES!
In a 2005 report toKofi Annan, the Secretary General's old friend Sachs criticized the United States for giving only a mere $16.3 Â billion a year to alleviate global poverty .
Specifically Sachs advocated a GLOBAL TAX:
"We will need, in the end, to put real resources in support of our hopes. A global tax on carbon-emitting fossil fuels might be the way to begin."
In other words, you get to pay even more to fill up your tank so some leader of a third-world country can build two or three more palaceswhile his people are starve to death -- all in the name of fighting global poverty!
Remember the scandal of oil-for-food?Â Remember how the money we thought was going to help feed people was really lining the pockets of the already wealthy?
This bill will send our hard earned money to the UN to distribute.Â Of course we're all concerned about global poverty.Â But do we want the UN to decide how our tax dollars are spent?Â Do we want another oil-for-food scandal?Â How can we be sure that won't happen again?
Does the United Nations reflect YOUR values?Â A Fox News poll said that 54 percent of Americans think the UN DOES NOT reflect our values.Â And yet this bill proposes to let the UN decide how this money will be distributed to the hungry throughout the world.Â Where will the money really go?Â Are you prepared to give up more of your money with no control over where it goes?Â
The email I received included a link where you can have 50 faxes sent to the President and 49 Republican members of the Senate.Â Here's the link, but since the link provides the names of those Senators, you could write to them yourself without spending the $25.Â Â http://www.exposeobama.com/globalpovertybe.html
