Democratic Leaders Don’t Believe Washington Has a Spending Problem

Add House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer to the list of Democrats who don’t believe Washington has a spending problem. When asked point blank on CNBC’s Squawk Box this morning whether or not Washington has a spending problem, the minority whip refused to answer. 

This comes on the heels of Nancy Pelosi’s appearance on Fox News Sunday where the House Minority Leader said, “It’s almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address.”

According to a Politico/GWU/Battleground poll, conducted in December, 76% of Americans disagree with the Democrats in Washington and believe the government needs across the board spending cuts.

Democrats should listen to the American people and work with Republicans in Congress to address Washington’s serious spending problem.
