President Obama, flanked by Sheriff Joe “The Whip” Biden, delivered a brief statement after the House passed the Senate’s fiscal cliff crapwich. While paying obligatory lip service to fiscal discipline and the need for more spending cuts, Obama used his late-night bully pulpit to crusade immediately for…new spending!
@kesgardner yep how do you reduce the debt by increasing spending? Roads and bridges? Wasn't that the Stimulus bill?

@MamaJukes Obama still demands more taxes and spending, but wants no more arguments from congress. We now have only one branch of government
