(CNSNews.com) - Plugging a "truly balanced approach to our fiscal challenges," White House spokesman Jay Carney on Tuesday said President Obama does not view the issue of deficits and debt in a vacuum:
"He does not believe that reducing deficits and debt are values unto themselves. He believes that they are part of an approach that is driven by his number-one priority, which is economic growth and job creation."
Also on Tuesday, the Treasury Department announced a $120-billion deficit for October, the first month of fiscal 2013. That puts the nation on track to its fifth straight trillion-dollar-plus deficit.
I actually wish far worse for them but just attempt to contain it in back portions of my mind. I struggle between thinking those wishes right or wrong.
Perhaps if the need were legitimate,
they could go to their local churches and present their case.
What was best about this system was that those who were trying to game it usually met with a “NO” and some encouragement to change their life to one more acceptable to God.
He does not believe that reducing deficits and debt are values unto themselves.
Certainly they are values. Is Mr. Carney suggesting that as between having debt and deficits and not having them, all other things being equal, there is no qualitative difference? Man, I hope not!
As a former professor of mine said in response to a lame-brained answer in my first year Property class: “You don’t mean that. If... if you mean that, we’ve got to start all over. Tell me you didn’t mean what you just said.”
Me too. If someone voted for obama - I could care less hat happens to them right now. They bought it - they own it.
Don't cry its on you
That means that every SECOND of every day, the government spent every penny of what it took from us... and then spent $46,000 more. Every second.
Obama was at an express checkout line at a grocery store in Cambridge while at Harvard. He had 30 items in the buggy, but he was in hurry. He saw all the other lines were long and he was in hurry as he had his car parked in the fire lane right in front of the store.
Obama was asked by the grocery store clerk - Where do you go to College is it MIT or Harvard, harvard students cannot do math and MIT students cannot read.
Obama replied. Both because I am the future president of the US and I have been granted degrees already from both Harvard and MIT, and I am here in Cambridge for the social activities that come with an IVY league education.
Mam’ can you write the check out for me because I cannot write either and my friends do not speak any English either
now we know why Obama has no college transcripts - because he was granted degrees just for showing up in Cambridge, MA. degree granted for socializing with the marxist students.
Bring on the cliff. The sooner we crash, the sooner we can see who survives and then rebuild.
