Candidate Barack Obama vs. President Barack Obama?
November 2008, Obama said when introducing budget director Peter Orszag:
"We cannot sustain a system that BLEEDS BILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS on programs that have outlived their usefulness, or EXIST SOLELY BECAUSE OF THE POWER OF A POLITICIAN, LOBBYIST OR INTEREST GROUP. We simply cannot afford it"
Why does PRESIDENT Obama insist that the congress approve ALL that "excess spending" in new "STIMULUS BILL".......?
What happened to: "We will go through our federal budget _ page by page, line by line _ eliminating those programs we don't need, and insisting that those we do operate in a sensible cost-effective way," CANDIDATE Obama has said.
