Hot Air posted a video today of some of the Congressional hearings on the President’s proposed budget. The clip they posted is of Paul Ryan asking United States Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner what the President’s budget does to help end future deficit spending. I strongly suggest that you follow the link and watch the video.
There is a great quote in the video:
Geithner states, “We’re not coming before you today to say that we have a definitive solution to the long term problem, what we do know is we don’t like yours.”
In other words, why, no, our new budget does nothing to address America’s long-term fiscal crisis.
If our current administration is not willing to address America’s long-term fiscal crisis, let’s elect an administration that will be.
