CANDIDATE Barack Obama promised a line-by-line scrub of the wasteful government programs.
November 2008, Obama said when introducing budget director Peter Orszag:
We cannot sustain a system that BLEEDS BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS on programs that have outlived their usefulness, or EXIST SOLELY BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF A POLITICIAN, LOBBYIST OR INTEREST GROUP.
We simply cannot afford it
Why does PRESIDENT Obama strongly encouraging congress to approve ALL that excess spending pork in this new STIMULUS BILL…….?
What happened to: We will go through our federal budget _ page by page, line by line _ eliminating those programs we don’t need, and insisting that those we do operate in a sensible cost-effective way, CANDIDATE Obama.
Obama is a ":poll": driven politician, look back through his entire campaign, he would say something then the polls would show people didn’t agree with him so he would change his stance, he has always shown he can’t take a solid stand on anything that may put people at odds with him, thats why he voted present as many times as he did. That’s also why he was pushing so hard for the Republicans to get onboard his stimulus, he didn’t want to take the hit alone, he wanted to be able to say it was both parties that screwed up, he even told them he could pass it without them so why try so hard to get them.
The first real problem was anyone believing a democrat.
We don’t know yet, he hasn’t submitted a budget.
president obama is awesome
