Congress Spends Money. The Deficit Belongs to Them.


A rare Blunt and Cranky shout-out to President Obama for reminding Congress of its Constitutional responsibilities. His words:

“I will not have another debate with this Congress on whether or not they should pay the bills for laws they have already racked up.”

Maybe this former legal scholar will remember these words later on. We most certainly should. It has become fashionable of late to blame the Prexy for everything that is wrong with America, but the truth is: he has very little power over our fiscal situation.

Let’s focus on the Congress when it comes to taxing and spending. The only people who benefit from blaming the Executive for our crap balance sheet are the legislators who bear the actual responsibility.

Mr. B & C
