Obama says "you have to pay." When? Who? How?

In today's speech Obama was speaking about the budget and Paygo. He says if we want to increase or start a program you have to be able to pay for it. If you want to cut taxes you have to be able to pay for it.

He has spent 3 trillion dollars since taking office. Who pays for it? How and when?

  • We will all pay for it. In higher taxes. I don't think it takes a rhodes scholar to figure it out.

    Clinton WAS a Rhodes Scholar, and despite his other faults, he DID balance the budget. Maybe it DOES take a Rhodes Scholar

  • i think he was referring to YOU. he's not cutting anything, obviously. He asked his pals to cut 100 mil. and spent 330000 to buzz the towers.

  • We and our children. If he were really concerned about cutting expenses, he could start with the waste that he PERSONALLY is engaging in with his outrageous spending of tax payer dollars. Turn down the heat. Don't spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary decorative upgrades and remodels. If it NEEDS to be done, do it. But sometimes one can live without all the latest in times of economic crunch and our President SHOULD be leading by example.

    But, we and our children are going to pay for it. He is doing some serious long term damage.
