In a Bold Move… Dems Willing to Cut Maybe $33 Billion from the TRILLION Dollars They Just Added to Federal Budget
These Aren’t Serious People.
Obama, Pelosi, Reid and Democrats added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.
That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
Democrats LOVE to spend your money. It’s what they live for.
The Obama-Pelosi national deficit is over a trillion dollars for the third year in a row.
Another Obama record.
This chart was updated to reflect the recent news that the deficit this year will reach $1.65 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)
Today democrats announced that they may cut $33 billion from their record budget. That’s less than 1% of the total national budget.
These aren’t serious people.
The Politico reported:
Budget talks came to life Wednesday but not without tension between the White House and Senate Democrats, worried that the administration was too quick to agree to $33 billion in spending cuts to try to move Speaker John Boehner toward what remains a very uncertain deal.
Vice President Joe Biden and White House Budget Director Jack Lew came to the Capitol in the evening for a meeting with the party leadership requested by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Democrats fear that unless the administration takes a stronger stand now, President Barack Obama will only be nibbled to death and be weaker when he faces the Republicans again this spring over the bigger fight of raising the debt ceiling.
Biden confirmed the new target on spending cuts, putting the best face on the deal for Democrats and in his trademark style, trying to add a little punch to the administration’s stance— still hampered by Obama’s detachment from the budget fight.
“The main reason to be here today is to make sure that Democrats in the Senate and the president are on the same page,” Biden assured reporters. “We’re on the same page.”
