Obama Opposed Spending Freeze
Bad strategy from Obama. Yes, limiting spending is a great idea. But this is the president who got an 800 billion plus dollar "stimulus" bill.
And the one that signed off on an Omnibus Appropriations Bill that is projected (over 10 years) to increase the national debt by over 9 trillion dollars.
It is, in other words, way too late for Obama to have any credibility on the issue.
