There’s no wonder that Marco Rubio was thirsty by the time he finished listening to all of President Obama’s hot air! Obama told a lot of whoppers in his State of the Union address tonight, but one of the biggest had to have been gem:
Tonight, I’ll lay out additional proposals that are fully paid for and fully consistent with the budget framework both parties agreed to just 18 months ago.Let me repeat: Nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime.
First of all, Congress did not agree to any budget proposal. There has not been a Federal budget passed in almost five years. So any “agreement” Obama thinks he has from both parties is pure baloney.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, Obama claims that none of his proposals would add a dime to the deficit. I’m not sure where he’s planning on getting the money from, but he went on afterward to propose 29 new government programs. Everything from new government funded manufacturing centers to free pre-school for every American to rebuilding run down houses in poor neighborhoods.
CNS news has a list of all 29 of the new programs Obama proposed.
Obama’s State of the Union was like a wish list to Socialist Santa Clause, and the idea that it won’t a dime to the deficit is simply absurd.
