Following President Barack Obama’s approval of a two-year budget deal that blows through the spending caps he previously supported, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
"This White House has proven, once again, that its promises are meaningless. More than four years ago, President Obama signed the Budget Control Act into law and pledged to veto any attempt to undermine the spending caps. In fact, the spending caps were proposed by his advisers."
"Congressional Republicans also deserve criticism for their complete surrender on the Budget Control Act. Republican leaders like to pat themselves on the back for restraining spending under this White House, but the days of $1 trillion deficits are not behind us, as entitlement programs and debt service begin to consume greater shares of the federal budget."
