100 Days by the Numbers

$787 billion economic stimulus package.

$410 billion in spending on a fiscal year 2009 omnibus package.

$3.6 trillion 2010 budget that would raise taxes on the very job-producing small businesses our economy needs right now.

$9 trillion added to the national debt. To understand just how profound this is, it took 200 years for America to accumulate the $10 trillion in national debt that Obama inherited. He will double it to $20 trillion in just ten years! This debt will hang over the heads of our children and grandchildren and leave them indebted to China and countries in the Middle East for generations to come.

$100 million cabinet meeting scam in which the President called for his cabinet to cut government spending across the board by a paltry $100 million. As the Washington Post stated, it was “like trying to deal with a $5,000 credit card debt by forgoing a pack of gum.” It was the equivalent of a family finding a way to save $6 in an annual spending budget of $60,000. Any third-grader could do it. Clearly it was nothing more than a smokescreen and photo-op designed to divert attention from the most free-spending president in U.S. history.
