Peoples Forum: President misleads on federal spending
Posted: 01/29/2013 at 1:15 am
The Democratic Senate did not pass a budget for three years and so spending was maintained at that astronomical level for the next three years by using “continuing resolutions,” which he also signed.
His claim that the nation would go into default is also ridiculous, for there are enough taxes collected to meet our debt requirements as well as Social Security, Medicare and military needs and the Treasury Department determines which bills are paid first.
He has a bad memory and either he does not know how our government works or he is trying to fool us.
