Rep. Todd Tiahrt , R-Goddard, said the new 10-year budget deficit projections of $9 trillion confirmed the need to repeal the federal stimulus plan and showed that President Obama’s “out-of-control spending is leading our country toward fiscal calamity.”
He obviously ignores the fact that the economy, while far from recovered, is better today than it was under then President George Bush. He stick to the idea that politicians should sit on their ass and do nothing.
According to The Wichita Eagle:
”Tiahrt said that the “skyrocketing deficit numbers should serve as a wake-up call to the administration that you cannot borrow and spend your way out of a recession.”
But he can spends tons of money to get elected and raise millions from lobbyist to get a seat in the senate. I guess spending is only a bad thing when Democrats do it.
