Obama Pushes Local Government to Pass His Agenda Rather Than Congress
Since Obama did nothing but shove Obamacare down the throats of Americans when Democrats controlled all of Congress his first 2 years, he’s sought to bypass Congress on more than one occasion to get his far left wing ideology through.
Most people realize that Democrats do nothing unless they are told to by their party and Obama works quite well with this type of top-down sheeple approach.
Rather than try to pass failed programs and policies at the federal level, Obama has been working and propagandizing with local left wing shills to get his agenda of destruction completed.
President Obama has quietly racked up a series of legislative victories during the past few months as lawmakers have enthusiastically embraced his calls for a higher minimum wage, paid sick leave and universal pre-kindergarten.
Instead of Capitol Hill, those victories happened in city halls, state houses and county buildings far from Washington.
At least six major cities — Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Tacoma, Wash., and Washington, D.C. — have passed paid sick leave laws in the four months since Obama called for state and local action in this year’s State of the Union Address. Since the 2013 address when Obama called for an increase in the minimum wage, 17 states and six major cities have taken action, including Los Angeles last week.
Obama’s state-and-local strategy may be unprecedented in its scope and ambition. Though previous administrations have appointed top advisers to listen to concerns of state and local officials, the Obama White House appears to be the first to aggressively use those same channels to encourage them to adopt Obama’s policies.
“It is a change in the paradigm, where we used to sit passively by waiting for elected officials to come to us. We think we can have a more substantial impact if we collaborate,” said Valerie Jarrett, the assistant to the president for public engagement and intergovernmental affairs.
There you have it. Those local officials you elected and thought actually represented you? Yeah not so much, especially not if they are Democrats.
Take a look at the agenda of your local Democrat Party. It’ll read like Obama’s playbook.
Pay attention to what your governor or Democrat legislators are pushing. Is it actually legislation that the people in your state even asked for or want?
Are your Democrat legislators voting completely against the majority of their constituents and voting how their party tells them?
If so, you’ve been had. Take a look at the votes of Democrats in your local legislature. Really take a look at how they vote lock step with their party rather than for we, the people.
