Obama’s Political Budget

Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer says Barack Obama’s budget proposal is nothing more than a political document for Republicans to ignore. “I don’t mind if the president sends a budget which he knows is not going to achieve anything,” Krauthammer said. “But when he prefaces his remarks … by saying that we have to put politics aside, posing again as the one person in the country who rises above partisanship and party, speaks for the national interest, it’s really grating. The budget he gave he knows is not going to pass. It’s not a real document. It is entirely a political and partisan document. It’s a way to present liberal budget choices in a way that is completely unacceptable, but a way to frame the debate in the future.” Furthermore, Krauthammer panned the idea of “austerity,” saying, “And when he talks about the mindless austerity of the sequester – this is austerity? The budget he presented is a half a trillion dollars of deficit. Until Obama acceded to the presidency, never in our history did we have a half a trillion dollars of deficit. Now he tells us we are in prosperity and recovery, and he still has half a trillion of deficit. And he calls it austerity.” He concluded, “This is a spending budget. The Republicans are not going to accept it. And rather than use it as a starting point for the bargaining on the budget, it should be completely ignored. Let the Republicans start from scratch.”
