“Within 12 years&the largest item in the federal budget will be interest payments on the national debt,” said former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker. “[They are] payments for which we get nothing.”

 

There’s no getting around the fact that eventually we have to pay this back and the interest payments are killing us.

 

 

“I place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.”

 

– Thomas Jefferson, 1743-1826

 

 

Families cannot prosper and keep America strong if government becomes a Goliath that preys upon their wealth, usurps their rights, and crushes their spirit.

 

–Ronald Reagan

 

Two years ago today, President Obama signed into law a “stimulus package” that his administration promised would keep unemployment under 8 percent. What has been the result of nearly $1 trillion spent on the so-called “stimulus?” Twenty-one months of unemployment at or above 9 percent, 2.6 million jobs lost, unsustainable budget deficits and an ever-growing national debt.

Americans rejected the Democrats’ reckless tax and spend policies last November. Despite this “shellacking,” Mr. Obama‘s proposed budget ignores the will of the American people and reflects a complete lack of seriousness for our fiscal crisis.

 

In my capacity as the new chairman of the Republican National Committee, it is my job to help hold President Obama accountable for his lack of leadership.

 

Looking at the president’s fiscal 2012 budget, my job may have just gotten a little easier. As the reviews come in, it’s clear the president didn’t live up to his own standards.

 

Under the president’s spending plan, 2012 will be the fourth consecutive year of running deficits in excess of $1 trillion. As a result of Mr. Obama‘s spending spree, the federal debt will soon be equal to the entire U.S. economy.

 

Instead of showing the leadership this country wants and deserves, the president continues to punt on real fiscal responsibility, making none of the tough decisions to cut spending - at no point in his budget would we spend less than we are taking in, raising taxes by $1.6 trillion and adding $13 trillion in new debt.

 

We’ve seen this movie before. Spending $814 billion on the stimulus and $2.5 trillion on government-run health care, America tried the Democrats’ model of spending hand-over-fist to jump-start the economy - to no availLast week, the Congressional Budget Office director confirmed that the president’s massive health care spending law will eliminate 800,000 jobs from our economy. In fact, the only jobs that appear to be created by the president’s budget are located at the Internal Revenue Service with 5,000 new agents prepared to enforce the president’s tax hikes.

 

It is this lack of leadership that encouraged voters to give Republicans a seat at the table as we work to get our country’s fiscal house in order.

 

The status quo is simply unsustainable. As Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke put it, limiting the expansion of government is critical to growing our economy. Getting our deficit in check will instill much-needed confidence for job creators our country depends on to jump-start our economy.

It's amazing to watch the Fabian libs blindly ignore the

huge failures of this failure of a president.

They support him fanatically, like the Nazi's did, with Hitler.

 

Apparently, right to the end, whatever that end is, with Obamao.
