Remember that section of the presidential debate where President Obama talked about a balanced approach to taxes and spending? And remember how he tried to chastise Mitt Romney for refusing President Obama’s balanced approach?
“Our untenable spending habits were at the root of this past summer’s crisis over the debt ceiling. President Obama’s insistence on a “balanced approach”—by which he meant a combination of spending cuts and tax increases—would have put a seal of congressional approval on a baseline level of spending significantly higher than when he took office. That is precisely why the President’s approach had to be soundly rejected. He wanted to move the country in the wrong direction of more taxes and more spending at a time when both are smothering the economy.”

Overspending is a national problem and I’m so looking forward to having Mitt Romney in the White House so we can put his mind and talents to work solving, rather than perpetuating this problem.Tags: debate, spending, balanced approach, the President, President Obama, Mitt Romney, presidential debate
