Obama Threatens To Veto House Republican Spending Cuts

The Republican budget proposals cut too much spending investment that’s necessary for the economy. Necessary, that is, according to Obama.

An official statement says the bill cuts “core government functions and investments” required for economic growth and creating jobs. It also says the bill doesn’t give the Pentagon enough money to meet its requirements.

The White House says that if the measure isn’t made more to President Barack Obama’s liking before it is sent to his desk, he will veto it.

He doesn’t get it.

Government “investment” isn’t going to fix the economy. It didn’t work when we dumped the “stimulus” spending on the economy, creating huge new deficits, and it won’t work now.

Republicans need to push ahead anyway and force a veto. Put this all on Obama.
