Great news: Obama-approved Democratic platform proposes $675 billion in new spending

posted at 11:21 am on September 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Party platforms usually don’t get too much attention, and are taken even less seriously by the candidates the parties nominate for office.  This time around, Democrats attacked the Republican platform for having the exact same language on abortion as it always has had — and left themselves open to big attacks when their own platform purged God and withdrew recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  That led to what a senior White House official called “an unfortunate stumble” yesterday, when Barack Obama supposedly demanded that both get put back into the platform:

Things got so bad that President Barack Obama was forced to personally intervene, ordering language mentioning God and naming Jerusalem as the rightful capital of Israel be added.

Obama had seen the language prior to the convention, a campaign source said, but did not seek to change it until after Republicans jumped on the omissions of God and Jerusalem late Wednesday. And even then, it had to be forced through a convention hall full of delegates who nearly shouted down the change.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the convention’s chairman, kicked off Wednesday’s proceedings by trying to clean up a mess Democrats made by omitting from their official party platform mentions of God and of Jerusalem as the preferred capital of Israel.

Villaraigosa called for a voice vote on an amendment offered by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, who chaired the platform drafting committee. Facing boos and “nay”s, he tried again, before announcing that in his judgment, a two-thirds majority had approved the measure. He was booed again as he walked off the stage.

Now, Obama owns the platform in a way few nominees ever do.  The Chattanooga Times-Free Press editorial board takes a look at what that means, and what it will cost if enacted in an Obama second term.  The price tag, according to cross-references between the demands and previous CBO scoring for them? $675 billion over 10 years:

In fact, the Democratic platform recommends launching a number of new federal schemes and increasing the funding for many existing programs. Among the 21 new spending proposals included in the Democratic Party platform are:

• $453 billion over ten years to fund an expansive stimulus-like job creation scheme;

• $18.4 billion over ten years to get the transportation sector to buy into alternative fuels:

• $6.5 billion over five years for global food security and agriculture research;

• $5 billion in one-time funding for clean energy handouts;

• $5 billion in one-time funding to force the government into the broadband Internet business;

• $980 million over ten years for government-funded abortions (if taxpayers’ pay for 10 percent of abortions); and

• $45 million over five years to support American Indian and Alaska Native languages.

In total, the Democratic Party platform recommends $674.8 billion in additional federal spending over the next decade.

You won’t find these totals in the platform itself; in fact, you won’t find any hint of what these platform planks actually cost.  Instead, the newspaper cross-referenced these programs against cost projections from the CBO and the White House itself to get an idea of what kind of spending Democrats want to pursue.

Would they get all of these programs through Congress?  Probably not, unless Democrats returned to the large majorities they enjoyed in 2009-10 and Obama remained in office.  But one can see from this list that deficit control isn’t just a low priority for Democrats, it’s not a priority at all despite Bill Clinton’s apologetics last night.  Thanks to Obama’s personal intervention in the platform controversy over God and Jerusalem yesterday, this makes his priorities clear as well.

$453 billion over ten years to fund an expansive stimulus-like job creation scheme

That worked so well the first time right?

• $18.4 billion over ten years to get the transportation sector to buy into alternative fuels:
• $6.5 billion over five years for global food security and agriculture research;

These two are opposed to each other.

• $5 billion in one-time funding for clean energy handouts;

Solyndra II! Gotta pay off the backers somehow I guess.

• $5 billion in one-time funding to force the government into the broadband Internet business;

What?!? Public option internet service? Gee, what’s that going to do to private companies? Here’s a clue: the same it would do to healthcare: Less availability, lower quality service.

• $980 million over ten years for government-funded abortions (if taxpayers’ pay for 10 percent of abortions); and

NO. Do I really need to explain why?

• $45 million over five years to support American Indian and Alaska Native languages.

How’d that get in there? Anyone stop to ask why this needs to be funded by the public?

Once again, obscene spending on non-essential services borrowed from the next generation to grease the ‘gimmie-gimmie’ mentality of the entitlement and politically-connected classes. In other words, more of the same from this administration. Make your choice.

The Failed President is a narcissist liar, socialist, and is destroying America. He is a very dangerous man and ignores the law in general, the will of the American people, Congress, and the Constitution. Obama has never stood for individualism, capitalism, or liberty. He is symbolic of a man who has downgraded the White House, the Constitution, human life, foreign policy, race relations, and America herself.

The majority of Americans are sick of his condescension, his policies, his racist bigotry, and his incompetence. This is the most corrupt, incompetent, dangerous tyrannical Administration in American history. His character is arrogance, conceit, egotism, vanity, and rank amateurism. His campaign is a platform of Division, Diversion, Anger, Hate,Defaming and Demagoguery.

Barack is a far left radical, anti-American, and plain old Chicago THUG politician. This Administration is an enemy of the American people.

one of the clip they playing this A< was bill c. saying Ds believe that we're all in this together. Now of that is a transparent lie, since Caroline Kennedy, Anna V, Eva Longoria certainly aren't going to go anywhere near the peasantry.

But, this faux populism has been front and center for decades…and nothing changes for millions of people, cities fail, Corzine gets to steal a billion or so dollars.

so people are just as gullible as they were in the depression…well ok, stupid people being stupid people. But no one has tried to make them self-reliant

Reagan had a great saying for the democrats on this note

“We shouldn’t just do soemthing because we thought it up”

I may not be exact Reagan quote but it does get to the blank check mentality that Democrats running for office have. I added up what Obama wanted to do and it is no surprise to me that he spent 5 trillion more than he brought in because that is what you would have got if you scored his promises and reduced tax revenue by the amount it would retard business.

What say the Romney camp made a video about the Dems taking God and Jerusalem out of their platform and ran it yesterday. It would be scored as untrue, merely because the Democrats ignored a voice vote and stuck those parts back in the platform. As long as the convention isn’t gaveled closed, or just short of it with 0bama’s final speech, the Democrats can try and undo the damage they are doing, and respond to any Republican ads that run with a quick attempt to undo the damage. Once 0bama takes the stage, then the convention is gaveled closed, what has happened *IS* the Dems’ final answer.

How much of this spending will be “forced” upon companies? Do we want to force the government into broadband internet? Do we need to bribe the transportation industry to use alternative fuels? More new “incentives” for green energy? (Isn’t the money from the stimulus and the existing tax subsidies enough?)
Maybe it’s time to start talking about the Pay As You Go law that was enacted by the Democrats? What do they plan on cutting to keep with the law? Will all of these new spending initiatives be classified as “emergency spending”? What’s the difference between emergency spending and regular spending? (Only Democratic spending is considered emergency?)
What about the Hyde Amendment? Does Obama plan on trampling on that law just like he did with the War Powers Act, the Congressional Budget Act, No Child Left Behind and welfare reform? Are we going to elect a dictator (the reason why he is palling around with Hugo Chavez) who uses executive privilege to enact his liberal agenda?
