Your Cost Of Living Is About To Go Up _ You Can Thank President Obama

President Obama, flying under the radar as he often does with the help of the MSM, is taking steps to raise your cell phone cost and steps to insure your costs for food and fuel will skyrocket. (Remember that food and fuel costs are not included in the governments calculation of inflation,) And, as is his penchant, he will do this with no input from Congress

Cell Phone Tax

Chris Stirewalt   at Fox News explains how President Obama is going to stealthily get you to pay a new tax on your cell phone use.

President Obama wants to place a new tax on your monthly cell phone bill to pay for his plan to put WiFi in more classrooms. And all he needs to do it is one more lobbyist in his administration.

Getting American consumers to cough up the billions needed for Obama’s “ConnectEd” initiative doesn’t depend on Congress or anything so tedious as winning bipartisan support. The president’s initiative instead rests squarely on his ability to push through the nomination of Tom Wheeler, a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama campaign bundler, to head the Federal Communications Commission.

You are all ready paying billions of dollars of your hard-earned money on your telephone bill to pay for all of those ObamaPhones and now you are going to a cell phone tax to cover the billions of dollars that Obama wants to spend on installing WiFi in all the nation’s public schools. Americans are the most generous people on the planet whether they want to be or not.

So, how can Obama create a tax without the Congress approving it? After all, the constitution is quite clear that only Congress has the power to tax. Well, remember all those bureaucrats we pay for in Washington? They have to power to write regulations and sometimes charge fees. And, thanks to Chief Justice Roberts we learned that fees are the same as taxes.

Stirewalt explains in his article how Obama plans to get his cell phone tax no matter what the voters or Congress feel about it. Chris tells us that this president, who campaigned in 2008 on putting an end to the influence of lobbiest in Washington is planning to hire a former telecommunications industry lobbiest to be his new  Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), who will see that the proper regulation is written with the fee needed to suck more of your money out of your wallet.

Getting American consumers to cough up the billions needed for Obama’s “ConnectEd” initiative doesn’t depend on Congress or anything so tedious as winning bipartisan support. The president’s initiative instead rests squarely on his ability to push through the nomination of Tom Wheeler, a telecommunications lobbyist and Obama campaign bundler, to head the Federal Communications Commission.

Thanks to the Senate GOP members caving in to Harry Reid’s threat to change the Senate’s rules on the filibuster, the Senate has been rubber stamping Obama’s nominations.

Food and Fuel Prices Going up by Executive Order

Yes, our elected Dictator, aka President, sure does like to rule by Executive Order, doesn’t he? According to this article, which I found by way of BadBlue Uncensored News, Mr. Obama issued another Executive Order on August 1, 2013, that has received almost no news coverage.

Obama issued an Executive order on August 1, 2013 that will effectively ban Ammonium Nitrate in the USA. It will become too expensive and create too much possible civil and criminal liability to manufacture, store, or transport it. Clinton did the same thing to Anhydrous Ammonia dealers in 1999. It put most Anhydrous dealers out of business. Obama is imposing the same regs and adding explosives regulations on top of OSHA and EPA regulations. It’s all there if you know how to read bureacratese.

{…}

Food and Fuel prices will skyrocket because Ammonium Nitrate forms the basis for almost all nitrogen in granular fertilizers used in American farming. There are no cost and ease of manufacture/use equivalents for ammonium nitrate. Supply and demand economics are going to be the harsh lesson of the day. Crop yields will go down. Corn is the basis for the American food supply and the fuel additive ethanol. A.N. is critical in corn production.

There you go. Obama don’t need no Congress!

So, how is this Obama Recovery working out for you, my friends? Hey, I live in a country where 35% inflation is typical. You may soon know what that means. And yet, the MSM continues to help Obama convince the public that he is the only one fighting for the middle class. The middle class couldn’t have a worse enemy!

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

  1. the abuses grow too numerous to count — I’m going to do a piece on critical mass — that is the point where half this country will no longer be able to abide with an illegal government acting illegally that something will break. I really favor congregation and secession. As I’ve said more than once, the US has ratified repeatedly that any group of people have the right to self-determination and the US has also forced the partition of a sovereign nation (Serbia) not at war with the US. All the precedents favor a separatist movement.

  2. The cell phone tax – estimated at $12/cell phone/3-years – again puts the President at odds with the separation of powers provisions in the Constitution. Only Congress has the power to tax and allocate funds. Having the FCC assess it as a fee is a cheap attempt to usurp Congressional authority.

    I don’t about the 2nd item… that one came to you from someone who got it from the Western Rifle Shooters Association (WRSA)… which seems fishy to me.

    It is Executive Order 13650:
    “Improve Chemical Facility Safety and Security”
    http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-08-07/pdf/2013-19220.pdf

    Not to say it isn’t there, but I browsed the order and didn’t see anything like they describe.

    My guess… the WRSA is far less concerned about food and fertilizer than they are about the fact that Ammonium Nitrate is used in 80% of all explosives used in North America!! 🙂

    1. Of course WRSA is concerned about the baning of explosives either directly or by driving the price up. But, they are right that the unintended consequences of what the government wants to control is the firtilizer cost will skyrocket and take food prices along for the ride.

      1. Exec Order 13650 reads like its a reaction to the huge ammonium nitrate chemical explosion in Waco, Tx back in April where at “least 15 people were killed, more than 160 were injured and more than 150 buildings were damaged or destroyed” (wiki)

        It is strictly limited to handling and safety issues. No more. no less. No banning or restrictions on the chemicals themselves, just regulations on how they are handled and stored.

        Given how it wields the EPA like a club, I wouldn’t put anything past the Obama Administration. But in this case it looks like Obama is acting properly.

  3. But, but, but I thought Obama said the middle class would not see their taxes raised one dime? Are you saying he lied? 🙂
    As for the Constitution, Obama has never seen it as a hindrance to promoting his agenda before, and he does not now either.
