Supplied With Your Tax Dollars, President Obama Is Ready To Spend, Spend, Spend NRCC | April 15th, 2013
As Americans file their taxes, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and their liberal allies are already writing their wasteful spending wish lists full of robo-squirrels, climate change musicals, and NASA video games.
House Republicans are the only ones in Washington to pass a balanced budget that will create jobs and guard taxpayer funds.
President Obama and House Democrats have proposed budgets that never balance, raise taxes and increase spending. They want more money from Americans to feed their spending addiction.
It’s time to put an end to the wasteful spending that has become a hallmark of the Obama-Pelosi era because Washington should guard your money as carefully as you do.
President Obama’s Budget Will Include $580 Billion In New Taxes. “The main deficit reduction elements of the plan incorporate an offer Obama made to Boehner in December when both sought to avoid automatic, across-the-board spending cuts and broad tax increases. Obama’s plan includes $580 billion in new taxes that Republicans oppose.” (Jim Kuhnhenn, “Obama: Budget Not ‘Ideal’ But Has ‘Tough Reforms,’” The Associated Press, 4/6/13)
President Obama’s Budget Proposes More Spending. “Scheduled for release at 11:15 a.m., the White House request would increase spending in 2014 by nearly $160 billion beyond what the CBO projected in February — a product both of canceling the sequester and Obama’s new spending initiatives.” (George Cahlinik, “Budget Tracker Briefing: Obama Seeks More Revenue, New Spending,” CQ, 4/10/13)
