Budget Plan Comparison: Scott Walker versus Barack H. Obama

Governor Scott Walker (R-WI)
Governor Scott Walker, Wisconsin has had a success story because he did what he promised the voters who put him in office, replacing a tax-and-spend Democrat governor who signed a record $1 billion tax bill after promising not to raise taxes. He also took on the parasitic unions and won.
That is why, after winning a recall election funded by Democrats and trade union money, voters reelected him in 2014. After leaving Marquette University he secured a job at IBM and then with the American Red Cross before entering the world of politics in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Like President Obama, Governor Walker is delivering his 2015 budget, which in the past included property and income tax cuts, unlike President Obama. He looks to avoid a fuel tax increase that will include fund cuts for state universities over two years and using federal grants to keep state roads in good condition. Those actions improved a failed state economy through tax cuts and encouraging business investments.

While it is early to perceive who would hold strong for the Presidential 2016 election, Iowa poll shows that Walker has surged into the lead followed by Rand Paul, Mitt Romney (out of the campaign), Mike Huckabee, and Ben Carson. Jeb Bush and Chris Christie have weak ratings and Ted Cruz has not gained much in the poll ratings of Republicans. 
On the Democratic poll ratings, Hillary Clinton takes the lead at 56% and Elizabeth Warren at 16%. Democrats apparently have the illusion that Hillary Clinton accomplished anything in her political career, but has a strong rating of having a career checkered with scandals that ended with her resigning as Secretary of State after the Benghazi tragedy. Democrats also appear to use gender as they did with race with Obama in their campaign, believing that the first woman president should be the major concern as the first black president issue was in 2008. Character, experience, and constitionalism should be the factors, not gender, race or other superficial reasons; and if that person qualified happens to be a minority race or a female - so be it.
President Obama delivered his budget and Keith Koffler simply states it is Utterly Irresponsible sung in parody via the late Robert Palmer song, Simply Irresistible.
President Obama's proposed budget dresses out to $4 trillion [$3.9 trillion]. Politico calls it the Have-It-All-Budget and will be “dead on arrival” when it reaches Capitol Hill.
Meanwhile, H.R. 596: Repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is being pushed through the congressional committee. House Majority Leader has indicated the bill will be considered in the first week of February.
The White House website (has “interactive” budget for 2016) boasts President Obama's plan for a free and open Internet, as he puts it, stating the push for “net neutrality”; when in effect his broadband plan pushes for a universal broadband like his universal healthcare with increased Internet speed encouraged by providing tax breaks to companies who do so. Like his vision of universal healthcare it all means further control of private sector and government intervention into what is considered the last bastion of freedom in the United States not compromised. Indeed, Fox News reports that critics are saying it is just another “federal takeover”.
President Obama is diving deeper into the debate over Internet control, urging the Federal Communications Commission to pre-empt [sic] state laws that restrict local governments from building broadband services.
Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) accused the president of pushing a federal takeover of state laws governing broadband and the Internet. Consumers are already pissed off at Amazon for instituting the policy to charge individual state taxes to consumers instead of taxing only residents of the state where Amazon headquarters operates.
According to the White House, 19 states have laws restricting municipal broadband networks. Fischer and other lawmakers worry about the impact an array of local government-run broadband networks would have on the private sector. She and 10 other Republican senators wrote to the FCC last summer urging the commission not to "force taxpayer funded competition against private broadband providers -- against the wishes of the states."
It is more likely that Obama and company are looking for another tax avenue to pay for government overspending.
All in all, as Obama's SOTU address indicated, is seeking a massive tax increase to pay for new government programs and that includes the trillion dollar fiasco called Obamacare.
That would not only hurt the middle class, but the “poor” as well; the very people that Democrats claim they are shielding from the bad and greedy 'wealthy'.
Taxes to be proposed for an increase are capital gains tax from 23.8% to 28%, as well as the tax rate on investments pushed to 25%. Certain inheritances will also be subject to increased taxes, rightly called the Death Tax, the most unfair and ruthless of all taxes.
Obama wants a $175 billion tax cut for the middle class, faster, cheaper broadband Internet (available everywhere), a week of paid sick leave, and discounted mortgages. One tax increase will be pushed upon middle-class college students via earnings on 529 college savings plans that has been tax-free since 2001.
Meanwhile, Al Sharpton is trying to keep ahead of the tax man. The state has shutdown his businesses.
The 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving states all power not delegated to the federal government, should make the states' case against the FCC "slam dunk," said Brad Ramsay, general counsel of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners [NARUC]. If a case makes it to the U.S. Supreme Court, "the FCC will lose," he said during a press conference Monday. … Just last week, three Democratic U.S. senators, including Cory Booker of New Jersey, introduced the Community Broadband Act, which would prevent states from "prohibiting or substantially inhibiting" cities from financing their own broadband networks.
As all Democrats [Progressive Socialists] and RINOs believe, legislation can change natural climate and weather conditions and its anomalies. President Obama will be executing yet another executive order to prevent rising waters on the coastline due to the alleged global warming effect.  It is prelude when he attends a United Nations meeting concerning climate control. Is he looking for another Nobel Prize? Obama is even seeking support from the Vatican.

CNS News … Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) spent a weekend at the US Detention Center, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (Gitmo) and stated that the inmates are treated very well.
