Does Obama want to increase or cut his budget deficit?
The audacity of obfuscation
There he goes again — saying one thing while doing the opposite.
President Obama proposes a budget that includes a $1.75 trillion deficit so he can spend nearly $4 trillion in fiscal year 2010. Then Obama says that while the details may change, any budget passed by Congress must cut the deficit.
Is he serious? Obama proposes a spend too much, tax too much, borrow too much budget. A budget the Congressional Budget Office predicts will result in deficits of $9.3 trillion over ten years — $2.3 trillion more than the deficit estimated by the White House. And then, in this week’s Obama propaganda video, he has the audacity to insist any budget passed by Congress must cut the deficit:
“Finally, this budget must reduce that deficit even further.”
Obama is shameless, simply shameless.
