GOP: $16 trillion in debt but still no Democrat budget for 1,361 days

Via news.investors.com » Submitted On Sun, 01/20/2013 - 11:13am by Norman Wolfe

Hello, I'm Congressman James Lankford from the great state of Oklahoma. Tomorrow, President Obama will be sworn in for a second term. Though we disagree on many areas of policy, I join my fellow Americans in pledging to pray for the President, his family and our nation in the days ahead.

During the last four years, our nation has faced difficult economic times. Millions of Americans are still out of work and the cost of groceries, gas and healthcare continues to rise. In the long history of our nation, we have never increased spending and federal debt faster than we have in this period.

In the book of Proverbs it says a wise man leaves an inheritance for his children's children; unfortunately Washington is consuming our children's inheritance.

My question is how can this be done when John Boehner (sp) and the house keep giving in to what Obama and the Dems want!! When will he get a backbone?? When will he stand up, present the facts and stand on the TRUTH?? WHEN?? It is not just the Dems!

Part of it, AK, is that the Dems had the House AND the Senate for two of the last four years. The Dems still have the Senate. Every time the House sent a budget over to the Senate, Harry Reid refused to have it voted on.

I know Katheryne. They never had a budget when the owned both houses of Congress. But still, the Republicans continue to cave in. Let the Dems and all those that don't hold to the truth, take the blame. Let the truth be known. I know it is not just Dems.

All you have to do is look at the European countries! They don't have budgets either! They just raise taxes on the people to pay for their programs. So that should tell you all you need to know as to where this country is heading!
