Next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country I hope these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step up cause I’m calling their bluff. And we’ll see how much of the political arguments that they’re making right now are real and how much of it was just politics.—President Barry Hussein SoetoroThe question at the G8 and G20 summit put to President Barry Hussein Soetoro was, “Are there steps that your administration can take now to build confidence that the U.S. will in fact meet its deficit reduction targets( goals) for the medium and long term,” the President careened along on a 4min 18 second long rambling fantastical response (because it wasn’t an answer) that had no basis in fiscal reality. (see 4:19min video)
Yeah right, Mr. President why don’t we start by first having your Democrat controlled Congress do the fiscally responsible thing and pass a budget resolution as required by The 1974 Budget and Impoundment Act, which requires that Congress pass a budget resolution by May 15 of each year. That might help give so idea of just how much deficit spending that we are doing presently.
Democrats have not passed a budget resolution yet and word is they are not going to this year because they don’t what the American people to know about the out of control spending deficits that has occurred under 18 months of the Barry Hussein Soetoro administration that makes President Bush’s entire 8 years look like fiscal restraint and fiscal responsibility. (see previous posts here and here)
Democrats are afraid that if the American people knew the truth about what the Soetoro policies are costing the American people Democrat political prospects in November, which already look bleak will sour even more.
Congressman Paul Ryan ranking Republican on the Congressional budget committee addresses the country in the Republican weekly address in which he alerts America about to fiscal irresponsibility of Democrats who are playing political games with our countries fiscal health. That includes the president. (see 3:20 min video)
Mr. President if you want to find some ass to kick. Or if you wish to call someone’s bluff why don’t you get your own party to pass a budget resolution as required by law. By my count, Democrats are 45 days out of compliance with the law. Seems to me that you don’t have to wait until next year, you can begin to have your party face some very difficult choices right now.
Because Mr. president the answer to the question about what step you will take to build confidence in America’s ability to reduce deficit spending all rest on the fact that you can’t even get your own party to comply with the law and pass a budget resolution.
And if God sees fit to turn the Congress over to Republicans in November, anything that you say will be qualified by the fact that you don’t have a budget now and you couldn't get your own party to make the hard choices now because of your lack of leadership.
Mr. president your bluff has already been called! Thank you Mr. Ryan!
