Jack Trapper of ABC News has a good roundup of Barack Obamaâ€™s lengthy promises. No one can say the Illinois senator is at a loss for ideas.
Of course, as Trapper notes, weâ€™re in for a net loss of $428 billion during Obamaâ€™s first term if all his plans are enacted (thatâ€™s from the bi-partisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget). Obamaâ€™s assertion that heâ€™s offered more than enough spending cuts to cover his new spending is just a wee bit spurious.
O.k., itâ€™s a lie but itâ€™s a lie all politicians tell so no one seems to care.
The question is: if elected, will Obama be the kind of spendthrift his programs indicate heâ€™ll be or will he set aside a good portion of his plans for the health of our budget?
I guess weâ€™ll find out if we elect him.
