All that Congress did was kick the can down the road and put us into further debt: 17 TRILLION and counting.
The government is running in patchwork fashion.
In his five years in office, President Obama has added SEVEN TRILLION to the debt -- more than all the other presidents combined. All this while the government racks in $250 billion from taxpayers every WEEK.
But now 10% of that (and more and more every day) must pay just the interest on our burgeoning debt. This was no breakthrough and no victory for anyone.
Your children and grandchildren will pay the price for this, -- and ours as well.
