No Spending freeze! Democrats pushed vote through for another 1.9 TRILLION!! WHERE IS THIS MONEY GOING???

Another $1.9 TRILLION down the tubes! WHERE IS THIS MONEY GOING??? (nice of them to pass this - before Scott Brown could take his seat!!!)

"Republicans blame recent generous spending bills enacted by the Democratic-controlled Congress for driving up the debt. Those measures, however, are just one relatively small part of the problem. The far bigger element is a sharp drop-off in tax revenues because of the recession and the economy's slow recovery, as well as higher costs, since more people are taking unemployment benefits and food stamps in tough times."

Democrats keep digging ourselves into debt - but WHAT is OBAMA doing to create jobs? Unemployment UP! Welfare UP!!!

    They don't have any plans - they should just give each taxpayer the $45,000 to stimulate the economy!!!   Put every social program on pause and give us all a chunk of change!  Like a reset button.  With people spending - it would pay back the government faster than Obama's greasy palmed deals!

  • They have all year to pass the spending freeze - he doesn't want it to actually happen until 2011 after they raise all those budgets another trillion or so. That way they freeze them AFTER they're funded so they still get the benefits of the favors the funding pays back.

  • Yeah, the freeze isn't going to take effect until 2011. The freeze would take effect with the 2011 fiscal year starting OCTOBER 1st!!! So that is plenty of time to spend us into oblivion! He said it just to say it. I promise when those words "spending freeze" came out of his mouth a lot of people gave a sigh of relief. The spending won't stop till he is booted out on his arse in 2012.

  • Plus, there is a HUGE difference between a "freeze" and a "cut". After the 3 years, the money will be running out the door right behind the Obama's as they move out of the WH!
