Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Cagle Post: A Commonsense Plan in a World Gone Soft

America has a spending problem. Our national debt is racing towards the $15 trillion mark each and every day because of a culture of irresponsible spending in Washington. Throughout the ongoing Obama Recession, Americans have had to sit around the kitchen table and make hard cuts to their household budgets – Washington must do the same.

We live in an age where America’s national debt has gotten so out of control that former Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen has said the national debt is America’s number one national security problem. Think about that. The leader of America’s armed forces believes that our debt is more of a security risk than the threat of terrorism. Washington must get its spending under control or we will begin to look more like Greece than America.

Unfortunately, with President Obama’s failed “Green Jobs” program, the status quo continues. For good reason, the American people have no confidence in this administration’s handling of taxpayer funds. What’s worse is that in the face of the Solyndra debacle, the Obama Administration signed off on billions of dollars more in green energy loan guarantees last week. The arrogance and irresponsibility of this administration never ceases to amaze me. President Obama should be halting these bad ideas, but instead he lets his Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, run amok with the taxpayers’ checkbook.
