(We see a living room set with couches and chairs arranged in a semi-circle. The set is slightly darkened. Five to six people begin to file into the living room and take their seats One of the persons is the “Facilitator” – the group leader, a “Wayne Dye/Dr. Phil” type. During this scene, we cut to each person as they speak.)
I mean… How much longer can we do this? A day? A week? A year? I mean… If we don’t help him now…I fear that he’s never ganna get the help.
He seemed like he had it under control…
Well he always said that “this would be the last time” and everything will be fine…
Yeah… But there’s always a next time, another promise, another excuse.
Once he started he couldn’t stop.
And it’s hard to say these things to someone that you love. Right? First there’s the excuses, and then there’s the denial. I mean… healing begins with the truth.
GRAPHIC: Spending intervention
(The people are all seated in the living room. We now see our subject seated in a chair. ).
GRAPHIC: (stays throughout) #ObamaIntervention
We need to tell him this… (softly) Barack – you have a spending problem. We all know it. And we’re here to help.
GRAPHIC: Obama spent the most in history. Peter Ferrara, “Obama’s the biggest spender in world history,” Townhall.com
You mislead us. You spent over $800 Billion Dollars on a “Stimulus Package,” that your Administration said would keep unemployment under 8 percent. It didn’t happen.
GRAPHIC: $833 BILLION failed “stimulus plan.” http://www.cbo.gov
The biggest spending bill in history has your name written all over it – Obamacare is costing trillions, and taxes keep going up to pay for it.
GRAPHIC: $1.6 TRILLION and Health Care Costs are still rising. Peter Farrera, “Obama’s the biggest spender in world history,” Townhall.com.
(Cut back to facilitator in living room)
The first step is to admit you have a problem.
I’ve got a business, employees. You said increasing the debt was unpatriotic. You increased it by 6 Trillion!
GRAPHIC: Obama increased debt 6 Trillion. www.treasurydirect.gov, accessed 1/13/13.
You’re always trying to talk your way out of it… deny you’re addicted.
I mean, do you have any idea how bad this problem is? You’ve racked up nearly $2 trillion since you last raised the debt ceiling. And now you want to spend more?
There’s no end in sight…
I thought he was different…
