Debt just keeps growing

March 2, 2013 

Please inform those who are complaining that there is one thousand billions in one trillion. President Obama has exceeded the federal budgets by $1 trillion each of his four years so far. His proposed budget for next year was to be another trillion dollars over budget.

He has picked sensitive places to cut $85 billion. Now that's politics, not leadership. He could have cut a few airplanes the Air Force has for years said it doesn't want or he could have lived up to his promise to end wars like Afghanistan. He's now considering continuing that war through 2016.

What a disappointment he has been and I don't see him changing. So our federal debt just grows by more trillions.
