The Problem with Obama is Reality

Former Senator Jim DeMint has a lot to say about Barack Obama and what Obama says regarding our economy. There appears to be a gap between Obama and the reality of where our country stands on the money cliff! DeMint said the following on WND Radio:

DeMint said the president is simply not living in the real world.
 
“The president has a difficult time with the truth. We have not cut any spending in Washington. We’ve doubled spending in the last 10 years. He keeps talking about ‘revenues,’ which is their new code word for more tax increases,” said DeMint, citing the fiscal cliff deal and the Obamacare as major tax increases that have already been implemented.

 
“We don’t have a revenue problem,” he said. “If we would cut spending, you would see the private sector grow and even more revenues to the federal government. The president talks about a fair and balanced approach. American businesses and individuals now have some of the highest rates in the world. It’s hard to compete internationally. He’s still talking about more tax increases. The president is really going to hurt our country in a long-term way if we don’t push back on this.”
 
The mounting debt makes fiscal responsibility essential, and DeMint said America doesn’t have much time to change course.
