STUNNING Obama Statement To Boehner: “We Don’t Have A Spending Problem”

It seems like almost every day President Obama comes out with, or we learn about a statement that is more incredulous than the previous day. But this newest admission in a Wall Street Journal interview from House Speaker John Boehner about Obama's economic thinking is absolutely stunning!

According to Boehner, in no uncertain terms, President Obama told the Speaker, "We don't have a spending problem." And Boehner went further to say that our utterly unqualified Commander in Chief thinks that almost all of our economic woes are the result of, "a healthcare problem."


We almost don't have words for such blindness, foolishness and complete and utter lack of understanding of the plight of our nation. This is flabbergasting to think that the man who runs our country, the man who was elected to a second term to arguably the most important job in the world, has so little understanding of the workings of the economic engine that runs society.

How, in any sense of sane reasoning can the President Of The United States not think that a $16 trillion debt did not come about by spending too much money? How can Barack Hussein Obama, knowing that every entitlement program we have is overburdened by debt, not think we have a spending problem?

While Obama is an absolute master, with the help of the State Run Media, at positioning himself as being fair and laying all of the blame on Republicans, after this interview with Boehner in the Wall Street Journal there is simply no reason to work with, or even try to work with President Obama.

Boehner has said that he will no longer have private meetings with Obama on financial subjects and in light of that and the fact that Obama is still asking for more taxes on the wealthy, Republicans should simply pass bills or offer their best solutions to problems and then walk away from the table. There should then be no debate, no compromise, no dealing with a man that is an obvious ideologue only interested in passing his agenda and nothing else.

In an interview with Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal, newly re-elected House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) opened up about President Obama’s utter unwillingness to cut a single dollar from federal spending. In a stunning admission, Obama reportedly told Boehner, “We don’t have a spending problem.”

Boehner added that President Obama continues to maintain that America’s federal deficit is caused not by governmental overspending but by “a health-care problem.” Said Boehner, “They blame all of the fiscal woes on our health-care system.” Boehner told Obama, “Clearly we have a health-care problem, which is about to get worse with Obamacare. But, Mr. President, we have a very serious spending problem.” Obama eventually replied, “I’m getting tired of hearing you say that.”

Obama may be tired of hearing Boehner talk about a spending problem, particularly when Obama has been re-elected on the basis of ignoring government spending. Nonetheless, America does have a spending problem, which Obama is steadfastly ignoring. “He’s so ideological himself,” Boehner explained, “and he’s unwilling to take on the left of his own party.” That’s why Obama refused to raise the retirement age for Medicare after agreeing to it. “He admitted in meetings that he couldn’t sell things to his own members,” said Boehner. “But he didn’t even want to try … We could never get him to step up.”

Boehner says that there will be no new tax increases over the debt ceiling. “The tax issue is resolved,” he said. And he said that more closed-door negotiations with Obama would be “futile.” It’s a bit too late to recognize that, but better late than never.
