At least he has a sense of humor. No one could be so oblivious to their own catastrophic failures; he must be doing this for sick laughs:
President Barack Obama, who has increased the national debt by $53,377 per household, has proclaimed April “National Financial Capability Month,” during which his administration will do things such as teach young people “how to budget responsibly.”
When Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the total debt of the federal government was $10,626,877,048,913.08. As of the close of business on March 28, 2013, the total debt of the federal government was $16,766,988,432,792.62 — an increase of $6,140,111,383,879.54 since Obama took office.
Fiscal responsibility? Obama couldn’t even spell the term.
The president is required by law to submit a budget proposal for the next fiscal year by the first Monday in February.
Thus far, Obama has not submitted his budget proposal for fiscal 2014.
But he did submit one in 2011; it was so outlandishly unreasonable that the Senate killed it by a vote of 97 to 0. He tried again last year; this time his lunatic looting spree of a budget was voted down 99 to 0. No wonder he doesn’t want to submit another.
But telling kids to balance their checkbooks when they grow up is something he can handle.
