President Obama Fails to Grasp America’s Fiscal Woes

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is disappointed by the President’s jubilance over a deal that kicks the can down the road and accomplishes nothing.

Tea Party Express’ Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, ”The President continues to cry over spilt milk instead of accepting the cause for the mess. Our government spending continues to rise while our economy is sputtering along. 11 million people are out of work and Obamacare continues to pursue the high tax, high regulatory federal policies that have made this economic recovery the worst in modern history.

“Tea Party leaders are trying to address the unparalleled growth and cost of the federal government, but the President and his party continue to ignore the problem. Both parties have shown apathy for tackling this fiscal crisis, always saying there was a better time to get the American economy growing strongly again. The problem is that time never comes. Five years of trying to work with the failed presidency of Barack Obama has given us only the unintended sequester to rein in spending and nothing to undo the anti-growth policies endemic in Washington.

“The politicians in Washington seem totally out of touch with the American people. The Tea Party has sprung up because people were upset with excessive spending and debt, a weak economy and crony capitalism. The deal struck by Congress and the President just continues the bad policies that have endangered the American dream for many of our citizens,” Russo concluded.
