This proves obama is not serious
Back in 2006, [then Senator Obama] joined with other Senate Democrats to vote against raising the debt limit, a measure supported by President George W. Bush.
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills,” Obama said.
“Instead of reducing the deficit, as some people claimed, the fiscal policies of this administration and its allies in Congress will add more than $600 million in debt for each of the next five years,” he said, adding,”Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
I absolutely agree with Obama. We do have a failure of leadership and America does deserve better. He is the failure of leadership and without question America deserves better than him. He has singlehandedly raised the nations debt by more than $2 trillion. And if his abomination, i.e., obamacare succeeds in not being repealed, that single piece of legislation will add trillions more to the deficit.
He opposed raising teh debt ceiling in 2006 because it would have added $600 million a year for five years, but he sees no problem with increasing our debt/deficit today by trillions and trillions. I agree, the debt ceiling should not have been raised under Bush and I stand fully opposed to raising it today.
I am consistent in my complaint of uncontrolled spending, Obama however is deceitful, duplicitous, malfeasant absent even the most elementary plan, trying to bully congress to do what he was elected to do. Sadly his only answer is too raise taxes and take us one step closer to marxism.
