Video: Rep. Cleaver on Reining in the Deficit

February 7th, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

This is embarrassing watching Congressman Cleaver labor through his talking points while trying to explain that deficit spending has helped the economy. As the current Congressional Black Caucus chairman, we’d expect him to be out front explaining away the president’s failures, but he has absolutely no credibility when it comes to deficit reduction!

Remember, this is the guy who told us after the stimulus vote that “regardless of party, we all cast our votes with one hand and crossed our fingers with the other.”  This is the same guy who accepted $5,000 from a bailout recipient and secured taxpayer money in the form of an earmark for a raided lobbying firm!  And let’s not forget the $200 million stimulus earmark he secured for his district –  you know, the one with the unfinished plan that has created 100 temporary jobs. In the immortal words of tennis great John McEnroe, “you can’t be serious!”
