Pres. Obama’s Reckless Debt Demands

Washington – This morning, President Obama declared he would not negotiate with Congress on efforts to reduce spending; instead, he demanded a clean debt ceiling increase.  Heritage Action released the following statement from CEO Michael A. Needham:

“Rather than lecturing Americans and their elected representatives, President Obama should propose concrete solutions to our nation’s pressing fiscal problems.  Invoking the false specter of default is not leadership; it’s theatrics.  Demanding another debt limit increase is not responsible; it’s reckless.  Americans expect and deserve more from their commander-in-chief.”
