In an infrequent partnership, Republican Congressmen and Senators have joined forces to promote conservative budgeting principles. For the next several weeks, both chambers will come out against President Obama's outrageous overspending campaign.
This morning, House Republican Conference Chairman Rep. Mike Pence (IN) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (Tenn), met with reporters to emphasize the importance of their message. They purport the new budget spends too much, taxes too much and borrows too much.
Despite Republicans' hardline stance, House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have both already proposed a second stimulus to follow the one President Obama signed into legislation today.
“I think the fact that they are already talking about stimulus two indicates they already think stimulus one has failed,” Pence said earlier today.
Though President Obama blames his reckless spending on what he calls "last year's business," he promises that AFTER he finishes sending America into mountainous debt, the change he campaigned on can resume. "Future earmarks should have a legitimate and worthy public purpose," he said recently. The 9,000 included in the $410 billion omnibus bill apparently aren't a part of his "transparent" agenda.
