One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
Obama said in an interview with CBS News that social security checks may not go out in August if the debt ceiling isn’t raised.
“I cannot guarantee that those checks go out on August 3rd if we haven’t resolved this issue,” Obama said,
Crying wolf? I think so.
What is more upsetting is that Obama stated that he didn’t “know if there would be enough money in the coffers.”
Excuse me, Mr. President, but it’s your JOB to know. But then again, the first two years of your presidency, your democratic controlled house never passed a budget. And you never put one forth. SO MAYBE YOU DON”T KNOW HOW MUCH REVENUE WE HAVE AND HOW MANY BILLS WE HAVE TO PAY.? Obviously someone came up with the figure of $2.4 Trillion, the amount that you are requesting that the debt ceiling be raised.
And you knew, back in November, Mr. President, that with a Republican controlled House, the budget, spending and debt ceiling were going to be contentious topics.

Instead, you have proposed no cuts. You want raise taxes. And now you’re scaring Grandma.

If something isn’t done about our nation running in the red, we are sure to follow in the footsteps of Greece.
The debt ceiling, budget deficit and spending cuts are very real issues our elected officials need to tackle.
But, frankly, I’m not sure that anyone is up to the job.
