Wow!… Barack Obama Tells John Boehner “We Don’t Have a Spending Problem”

Barack Obama is the first human being on the planet to run four straight years of record trillion dollar deficits.
He doesn’t see this as a problem.

(J. Hoft Chart)

For years we’ve been trying to decide, “Is Obama stupid or is he purposely trying to destroy the US economy?”
Now we know the answer. He’s stupid as a can of Spam.
Thank you, America, for reelecting this destructive bonehead.

Barack Obama told John Boehner, “We don’t have a spending problem.”

The Wall Street Journal
reported, via Breitbart:

What stunned House Speaker John Boehner more than anything else during his prolonged closed-door budget negotiations with Barack Obama was this revelation: “At one point several weeks ago,” Mr. Boehner says, “the president said to me, ‘We don’t have a spending problem.’ “

I am talking to Mr. Boehner in his office on the second floor of the Capitol, 72 hours after the historic House vote to take America off the so-called fiscal cliff by making permanent the Bush tax cuts on most Americans, but also to raise taxes on high earners. In the interim, Mr. Boehner had been elected to serve his second term as speaker of the House. Throughout our hourlong conversation, as is his custom, he takes long drags on one cigarette after another.

    many folks on these comments pages knew by Spring 2008, as I did also, that He is a Destroyer.
    Enemy Dark Forces gathered around Him a long time ago. He was sent to us by Sauron.
    A biblical-style fog has descended over America which is the only reason He is succeeding.
    (see Russia 1920s, Germany, Japan 1930s, China 1950s, Cuba 1960s, Arab/Muslims 1970s…)

    since the rest of you have let it get this far, our only option now is… seceding

    He’s lying again. He wants to destroy USA by destroying the currency and running up a debt that isn’t sustainable. We are about to get downgraded again because of this evil fool. He won’t ever admit the truth that his spending has to stop. If he admitted it, then his spending would have to stop, and I’m not talkin about ‘entitlements’ that need to stay for peeps here in USA.
    He’s just a two-bit hustler from Chicago who cheated his way to the top. The little puppet has no shame, conscience or common sense. He’s also the biggest “divider” since the civil war!

  • Vethusbandfather

    Where were these bold statements during the election? I wonder if the ‘independent voters’ would have also agreed that we don’t have a spending problem.

    Spam is awesome. Chop it up in little pieces as well as some cabbage and fry it all
    together in some olive oil. Sprinkle with a little soy sauce. You will thank me.

    Republicans want to balance the budget on the backs of the poorest, most vulnerable people in our economy while getting the vapours if we raise taxes a slight margin on the richest. Or even THINK about defense cuts. The truth is the Republican party is composed of sheer evil, either that or they are really THIS ignorant.

    They only good Republican is a

    Boehner is aiding and abetting obama. Why is he complaining? didnt boehner just get a raise recently?
    Obama is buying all the congressmen off, with money, with pork barrel money etc. Republicans have become like the democrats. Those that dont go with the program like alan west are made sure not to win reelection.
    The supreme court is made up of weirdos and lesbians who do obamas bidding. Thats how it is.
    There final act is to take everybodys guns, they say they wont, but they say they werent going to raise taxes.

    “For years we’ve been trying to decide, “Is Obama stupid or is he purposely trying to destroy the US economy?”

    Both. Those positions are not mutually exclusive.

    Now we know the answer. He’s stupid as a can of Spam.

    How dare you mention the guy’s name in the same sentence with Spam?

    A can of Spam actually has value, in addition to making a good snack.

    We DON’T have a spending problem. The Congress and Obama have absolutely NO PROBLEM in spending our money. We have a SAVING problem, a COMMON SENSE problem, and an HONESTY problem. But we DON’T have a spending problem.

    “the president said to me, ‘We don’t have a spending problem.’ “

    And Boehner answered: “I must have misunderstood then. Good, then we can support all your proposals fully”

    The first blue line is actually Bush’s last fiscal budget year. In Obama’s fiscal budget years he reduces the deficit each time.
    These days Americans aren’t paying a lot of taxes, at least by historical standards. In 2012, federal tax receipts were equal to a little less than 16 percent of gross domestic product. Thanks to last week’s legislation, receipts will reach 19.4 percent in 2022, according to official projections. (Actually, receipts probably won’t get quite that high, because that projection assumes expiration of provisions that Congress typically renews.) The last time we actually balanced the budget—from 1998 to 2001—revenue surpassed 19.5 percent every year, averaged 20 percent of GDP those four years, and topped out at 20.6 percent of GDP in 2001. And that was before the Baby Boom generation began to retire which every responsible politician and economist agrees will cause the need for more revenue. So really in order to reach balanced responsible budget status historically revenues needs to rise 25% from 16% of GDP to 20%.
    The three best places to increase revenue would be corporations which have insanely low effective taxes being paid now and are awash in cash and profits they are not investing in the US; Wall Street, which despite crashing the economy is still a speculators market with huge tax breaks; and the wealthy, whose share of income has been on a 40 year spree but whose taxes had been getting lower each year.
