City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday thinks that because the city if Detroit voters pulled the lever for Barack Obama to be reelected, there should be a "quid pro quo" and states "After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. and came home with some bacon. That's what you do. That's what you do"
This is the mentality of liberal Democrats who do not understand our government is already underwater with over $16 trillion of debt, running trillion dollar deficits for the past four years straight.
Obama is no better, he has accrued more debt in his four years in office than George Bush did in eight and he wants to ... spend more, another $255 billion more in stimulus, that would have to be borrowed and to top off his irresponsibility, he wants Congress to hand him the power raise the debt limit aka to borrow as much as he wants, when he wants, without Congressional approval.
Heritage reminds readers of Obama's former position on raising the debt ceiling:
It seems typical of the President Obama we know, but just a few years ago, he spoke vehemently against putting America in debt. Here is then-Senator Barack Obama on March 16, 2006:Finally, something I agree with Obama on.. it is a sign of leadership failure and reckless fiscal policies... HIS.
The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.
