Quote of the Day

"Big Government doesn’t work for you – you are working for it. And that’s why conservatives make the point that our budgetary problems are not due to a revenue problem, but rather a spending problem.

And speaking of spending, you may have heard the news that the national debt recently topped $13 trillion. The good folks at the Washington Times crunched the numbers on Obama’s spending, and here’s what they found:

“At $13 trillion, that figure has risen by $2.4 trillion in about 500 days since President Obama took office, or an average of $4.9 billion a day. That’s almost three times the daily average of … the previous administration.”

If you’re a visual learner, click here to see a graphic depiction (pun intended!) of Obama’s out-of-control spending."
