Obama In Denial: No Debt Crisis And No Balanced Budget

March 13, 2013

Last night, President Obama spoke out publicly for the first time since Paul Ryan introduced his plan to balance the budget in ten years. What we saw was a clear contrast between Obama’s plan of perpetual deficits and economic stagnation and Ryan’s plan to balance the budget and create jobs for the middle class.

In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Obama first answered a flat “no” when asked whether or not he would propose a plan to balance the budget.

Not only did he refuse to offer a balanced budget, but he even criticized the very idea of balancing budgets saying, “My goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance.”

This inexplicable statement tells you all you need to know about President Obama’s philosophy on our debt and how we create jobs.

But he didn’t stop there, going even farther he denied that our country has a debt crisis at all.

“And, so, we don’t have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. In fact, for the next ten years, it’s gonna be in a sustainable place.”

First, they said there was no spending problem, now Democrats deny there’s a debt crisis. Their party is just in complete denial about the challenges our country faces. How can expect them to solve our nation’s debt crisis and create jobs for the middle class?

Tell Obama to stop the denial. It’s time to wake up and acknowledge our country’s fiscal mess. Americans are counting on him to either propose a responsible budget or support Paul Ryan’s plan.
