He must be tripping If he thinks we need to spend more money. First he talks about “phony scandals” and the distractions that they cause. Then he thinks we need to keep spending more money while talking about jobs and the economy. I’m hearing about 4 out of 5 Americans living in poverty (that includes the government social handouts) yet he still wants to spend more. His flunky Lew goes on the Sunday show to promote exactly that while saying Obama will veto any more spending cuts. Then we find out who the real culprits are in this whole issue–the Republicans in Congress. Scandals are distractions, spending cuts are bad, most people in poverty and it is the Republicans fault. This is why drugs should remain illegal.
