Hey, Love the defense, but the congress writes the budget, not the president. I guess he figures that the American people aren’t smart enough to know that it was Gengrich et al. that sent him a limited budget (relatively) coupled with the Reagan/Bush 41 economic expansion that followed their tax cuts and de-regulation.
Obama only wishes that he could slash the military the way Clinton was able to – post cold war.
He asks who would be more likely to balance the budget. Good question – let’s play compare and contrast. Circle the ones most likely to balance the budget from the pairs below:
Pelosi v. Boehner
Reid v. McConnell
Biden v. Chaney
Daschle v. Gengrich
FDR v. Eisenhower
The last ones are to show that this isn’t a new phenomenon. Other than the compassionate conservatives of the late 2000’s, the right side has been better at keeping spending in check.
I do agree that Pay-Go is needed. And that the last two years of the Republican congress in 2004-2006 was spend happy. But his arguments are pretty flawed everywhere else.
