CBO Report Confirms That Deficit Reduction Leads To Economic Growth, Helps All Families

On February 5, the Congressional Budget Office released a report titled, "Macroeconomic Effects of Alternative Budgetary Paths". Full disclosure: even to us policy wonks, this report sounds a bit dry. Not exactly 50 Shades of Grey, if you know what I mean. But this report did contain some very interesting nuggets. Prepared at the request of the Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, Patty Murray, I'm certain that it came as a bit of a surprise.

End the Debt Ceiling Shenanigans

Here we go again… The U.S. is expected to hit the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling by the end of February. That means that we can expect more partisan bickering in Washington over whether to raise the debt ceiling—with or without spending cuts. It has now become typical for Washington to stumble from one manufactured crisis to the next instead of fixing the root cause of the problem.

FreedomWorks Busts Myth Of Debt Ceiling And "Not Paying Our Bills"

The repeated refrain from the likes of Paul Krugman and Jay Carney is that we MUST increase the debt limit so that we don't default on the full faith and credit of the United States, and that we continue to pay our bills. Indeed, on Monday, President Obama chastised Congressional Republicans for making spending cuts mandatory in any debt ceiling negotiation:

If Obama Wants Kids On Stage, Let's Give Him Kids On Stage

Today, Obama is once again going to ignore the Constitution. This time, the Constitutional right under attack is gun control. According to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Obama will be presenting a “concrete package” of proposals which will water down the Constitutional rights of American citizens.

Opposition Grows As Jack Lew Proves He Doesn't Understand Budgets

Jack Lew, President Obama's choice to replace Timothy Geithner as Treasury Secretary, has been in Washington DC a long time. Anyone in public service that long will have quite a record of public statements that will paint an accurate picture for Senators who are considering his nomination.

The Prodigal Uncle

I’m trying to help a relative get out of a bad fix.He makes $50,000 a year, but Sam has $54,000 (!) of debt on his credit cards. Worse still, he just showed us plans for a $7,500 cruise next year. “Don’t sweat it,” he said, “I still have room on my Visa!” Crazy, right?

$5 Trillion added to debt since the last budget

Since the senate democrats last passed a budget, the American government has accrued $5 trillion dollars in new debt. The last budget was passed three and a half years ago and, in that time, our debt has risen from $11.2 trillion to $16.2. That is a terrifying benchmark.

Mind the Gap: The Disparity Between Obama's Revenue Increases and Spending on Entitlements

The following study demonstrates that the proposed revenue and tax increases being championed by President Obama will have a negligible impact on the ability of the federal government to finance entitlement programs over the next 15 years. Raising taxes risks economic growth without alleviating the budgetary crisis.

New York Times Inflates Obama's Already Over-Inflated Budget Numbers

It's one thing for the Obama administration itself to play fast and loose with budgetary facts, but it's an entirely new realm when the campaign cooks their numbers using questionable methods, and the media follows that up by inflating the falsehood even further.
