Rep. James Lankford Responds to President Obama’s $3.8 Trillion Budget

Uploaded by  on Feb 13, 2012

Rep. James Lankford (R-OK) responded to President Obama’s FY 2013 budget proposal that fails to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term as promised. The budget also delayed the tough decisions to cut spending and reform entitlements that are needed to avoid a debt crisis.

Dear Mr. President,

I know that you receive 20,000 letters a day and that you actually read 10 of them every day. I really do respect you for trying to get a pulse on what is going on out here.

I really am offended when I hear that you claim that your budget cuts 4 trillion in the next 10 years but it really adds to the deficit many trillions of dollars. What kind of funny math is that? Take a look at this article below:

Boozman Comments on President Obama’s Budget Proposal

WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement on the release of President Obama’s budget proposal:

“America deserves better than a collection of tax hikes, phony savings and additional debt.  The President’s budget proposal is bad for seniors as it takes no steps to protect and strengthen Medicare and Social Security, will hurt chances of an economic recovery through tax hikes and will add $11 trillion more to our already staggering national debt in a 10-year period.”

“This is clearly an election year proposal.  Rather than a serious attempt to outline a direction for our economic future, the President is trying to be all for everyone with this plan.  Just as the President’s previous proposals have been voted down, I would not expect this one to pass should it come up for a vote in the Senate.”

“This budget proposal from the White House is stark reminder that we need to pass the Honest Budget Act that I have cosponsored.  The President’s budget is loaded with gimmicks and accounting tricks that our bill would put an end to so that the American people would have an opportunity to weigh in on a real budget that would get our fiscal house in order.”

“When it comes to our country’s budget, Americans have a right to expect accountability, honesty and responsibility.  This proposal has none of those.”

Thank you so much for your time. I know how valuable it is. I also appreciate the fine family that you have and your committment as a father and a husband.Sincerely,Everette Hatcher III, 13900 Cottontail Lane, Alexander, AR 72002, ph 501-920-5733,
