Seriously? This guy must be living on another planet. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised to hear it from a President that has piled more debt onto our nation's citizens than any other president in our history as well as all previous US Presidents combined!
"We don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt," President Obama said in an exclusive interview for Good Morning America. In the same interview he called our current national debt "sustainable".
Well let's see. Our current national debt is $16.7 TRILLION right now. The Congressional Budget Office projects that another $7 TRILLION will be added to that number over the next 10 years on our current path. That is WITH the current cuts that took place a couple of weeks back.
Seems like a pretty substantial debt problem to me. We are broke and
only printing money and buying our own bonds is keeping us afloat.
Am I the only one seeing this picture? One day in the coming years this is going to have to
be reckoned with and it is not going to be pretty. We are all going to suffer for the excesses and waste.
After hearing Obama's comments it is even more evident why nothing gets done in Washington. The leadership does not even believe we have a major problem with government spending, tax loopholes and unsustainable social welfare programs. Nothing will get addressed in any meaningful manner anytime soon.
Until we get a President that recognizes the problem it will never be dealt with in any meaningful manner.
