Leftists call for more of the same – spending and debt

June 5, 2012 09:00


Leftist economists are calling for Obama to increase his record spending and debt to gamble on an economic boost to save his socialist presidency. It was Albert Einstein that said insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

In 2004 Obama said the “monstrous” deficits were “an enormous problem” when the deficit was $413 billion. In 2008 he said increasing the debt would burden our children and was unpatriotic. Every year of his term deficits have been over a TRILLION dollars. By the end of his first term he will have increased the debt more than all other presidents combined. Can we afford four more years of two faced, self serving fiscal insanity?

“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. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … 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.” – Barack Obama

“Rather than fight the same tired battles that have dominated Washington for decades, its time to try something new. Let’s invest in our people without leaving them a mountain of debt.” – President Barack Obama on his Office of Management and Budget website.

 

“We’re spending twice as much money as we did in 2001. If you go back 15 years our deficit this year is bigger than what our entire budget was. That’s how out of control the federal government is. … There is a political reason we’re not having a budget. Everybody understands that. Nobody’s going to say it. .. because we don’t want to make the hard choices in an election year.” – Sen. Dr. Coburn

 

Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mullen said our national debt is our greatest threat to national security.
