Budget (February 2012)

Election doesn’t mean wasted fiscal year

The president’s budget proposal presents Congress with an opportunity to redeem itself after an embarrassingly dysfunctional first session that ended in the lowest public approval ratings for Congress in recorded history.

President obviously doesn’t grasp the seriousness of fiscal situation

The only honest conclusion one can draw from President Obama’s fiscal 2013 budget is that this administration refuses to recognize the seriousness of America’s fiscal crisis and is recklessly unwilling to address the challenges we face.

Budget simply needs to create jobs

Job creation and tax fairness are at the top of voters’ to-do lists for Congress.

Budget falls way short on fixing debt

Perhaps it was too much to hope that President Obama would choose an election year to offer the first serious budget of his presidency.
