Ask Obama administration to cut government spending

2012-12-18T00:00:00Z Ask Obama administration to cut government spending
December 18, 2012 12:00 am

The Congressional Budget Office reports: For the first two months of this year's fiscal calendar -- which began in October -- this administration has spent $4.8 billion of borrowed money per day! This is $57 billion dollars more than last October and November. The CBO also is reporting a 10 percent increase in revenue. That's the good news. The bad news: the Obama administration spent 16 percent.

Please call the White House and insist that this administration cut spending and reduce every American's crushing debt. Your children, grandchildren and great-grand children will thank you and think of you as a patriot. With pride they will display your portrait over the mantel.

For those of you who think it's OK to pass these horrific deficits/taxes on as an inheritance for your kids, their kids and their kids' kids, they might hang your picture over the mantel too -- but it will be used as a dart board.
