With 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to era of austerity – The Washington Post

President Obama’s forthcoming budget request will seek tens of billions of dollars in fresh spending for domestic priorities while abandoning a compromise proposal to tame the national debt in part by trimming Social Security benefits.

With the 2015 budget request, Obama will call for an end to the era of austerity that has dogged much of his presidency and to his efforts to find common ground with Republicans. Instead, the president will focus on pumping new cash into job training, early-childhood education and other programs aimed at bolstering the middle class, providing Democrats with a policy blueprint heading into the midterm elections.

So it’s a good thing that the House GOP will refuse to let him raise the debt ceiling in order to keep him from this drunken-sailor Democrat spending spree, right?

Oh, wait a minute….

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. …Obama will call for an end to era of austerity…

    Faint, distant echoes of The Great Society, from an earlier era – and an earlier full-of-total-shit Democrap occupant of the Oval Office -

    Fondly-remembered quote from that earlier era: One old-timer resident of Appalachia, when told that the Gubment had declared a “War On Poverty”, reacted by exclaiming, “Well…we’s gonna fight back!”

    Sadly – he (and too many others similar to him) didn’t do so
