Video: 1,000 Days Without a Budget (McCaskill Featured)

January 26th, 2012 by mopns · No Comments

The Democratically controlled United States Senate passed a dubious milestone the other day. Incredibly, 1,000 days has passes since the senate passed a budget. One thousand days folks! That’s almost three years! Can you believe that one of the president’s campaign themes this year will be a “do nothing Congress?” Right there supporting this irresponsibility – along with President Obama – is ‘moderate’ Claire McCaskill. The same Claire McCaskill who was recently named as one of Washington’s worst porkers because of her reckless spending.

According to this CBS news report from last summer, “The latest posting by the Treasury Department shows the national debt has now increased $4 trillion on President Obama’s watch. The debt was $10.626 trillion on the day Mr. Obama took office. The latest calculation from Treasury shows the debt has now hit $14.639 trillion. It’s the most rapid increase in the debt under any U.S. president.”

Here’s what Claire’s buddy said about the deficit when he was a senator:

“Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.” (Sen. Obama, Congressional Record, S.2237-8, 3/16/06)

And as president:

“The only way this century will be another American century is if we confront at last … the mountain of debt [our children] stand to inherit.” (President Obama, Remarks To Joint Session Of Congress, 2/24/09)
