Obama to Boehner: 'We Don't Have a Spending Problem' [99.9% of the media IGNORE THIS OUTRAGE!]
Christian Post ^ | January 7, 2013 | Napp Nazworth

One of the reasons that President Barack Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner had difficulty agreeing to a "grand bargain" on deficit reduction and avoiding the "fiscal cliff" was that both men disagreed on the nature of the debt problem. Boehner believes that government spending is the problem while Obama believes the problem is the rising costs of health care, not government spending.

During those negotiations, Obama repeatedly told Boehner that "we don't have a spending problem," Boehner recalled in an interview with The Wall Street Journal's Stephen Moore.

Clearly, the problem is all those greedy conservative taxpayers who
insist on keeping about half of the money they earn for themselves.

Evil and barack h. claus won. The majority (voting) said raid the treasury, and so it is begun in earnest, after having been going on (slowly) for decades. Have popcorn, will munch.

Until the GOP can manipulate Americans AROUND the traditional lame stream Joseph Goebbels media, it is a lost cause for any other party than the RAT party. THE MEDIA DRIVES EVERYTHING IN THIS IDOL WORSHIPING NATION.

It is not right but it is the hard cold truth in the 21st Century.

In Zeros world not spending more is the problem. He wants to spread the wealth around and has gone on record saying so. This is hunky dory with the MSM too so nothing to see, nothing to report.

Utterly predictable.

None of the Liberals believe that we have a spending problem. Indeed they all seem to believe we should be spending far more on social benefits like the Europeans.

The only spending they seem to have a problem with is military spending, which they’d like to shift into welfare programs. That has not changed since the 60’s.

Because unlike stupid Republicans O did not say this on a camera/audeo recording. Its his word against those not there.

In comparison stupid Republicans (Romney, Angle, Akin, its endless) just love to give Dems ammunition in recordings they can play over and over to beat them over the head.

Blaming the media is just victim whining until Republicans learn to control themselves and become disciplined fighters.

Take 0 at his ‘word’ and not do anything about the debt limit. I mean, if we don’t have a spending problem, then there is no need to raise the debt limit one cent.

Altogether apart from politics... just looking at the numbers and applying a little basic logic tells you that the money for wholesale (in many cases, unnecessary) freebies to an ever increasing group of people has to come from SOMEWHERE ... and that ‘SOMEWHERE’ is a rapidly diminishing resource!

Forget Republican and Democrat! Forget the inevitable and destructive social discord which is the guaranteed outcome of a plan to provide so much and at no cost, to all comers. How can a smaller and smaller group taxpayers continue to supply the needs of an exploding class of people, who do not and never will support themselves in ANYTHING?

If you wrote a blueprint for assured discord, decline and destruction, it would look like THIS!

Boehner believes that government spending is the problem while Obama believes the problem is the rising costs of health care, not government spending.

So glad this was near the beginning of the article. I laughed so hard, I couldn't get past it. Surely Obummer realizes that the biggest reason for the rising costs of health care is HIS OBAMAdoesn'tCARE!

BO is an ignoramus.

No, he's telling the truth (for once). Catastrophic financial collapse serves his ends quite nicely.

while Obama believes the problem is the rising costs of health care, not government spending.

Government spending rises to an unprecedented peacetime level of 25 of GDP and "spending isn't the problem". He's either a well practiced liar or so dumb he shouldn't be in the White House.

obama does not believe this statement, he is just using it as a means to totally destroy the country. The loser and chief will not be happy until his muzzie friends rule the world and we are either dead or slaves.

The press simply got the quote wrong. What Obama really said was: “We don’t have a problem spending”.

“The only spending they seem to have a problem with is military spending, which they’d like to shift into welfare programs.”

The reason for that one learns by the extremely difficult, and quite senseless task of discussion with almost any of THEM is THEY believe if there were no military period there would never be war. ALL disagreements would be settled by sitting down at “THE TABLE”, and talking. One must imagine a wide eyed, sincere, but empty headed facial expression as that is read.

Libs ARE mental.
