“President Barack Obama calls for an end to earmarks and then signs a budget for the rest of this year containing over 8,000 such congressional raids on taxpayers’ purses.He calls for a new era of fiscal responsibility and then sends to Congress a ten-year plan for deficits as far ahead as the eye can see.He calls for sacrifices from all and then proceeds to give 95% of American families a tax cut. He promises to revive the housing industry and then asks Congress to reduce the deductibility of mortgage interest.He calls for the reform of the education system and then signs a budget that eliminates funds that keep a few poor kids in private schools, and out of the clutches of the Washington education system’s bureaucrats.Confused or cunning? I report, you decide.”
Check out this article by Irwin Stelzer in the D.C. Examiner. I heard this guy interviewed on the radio this morning. He presents a pretty articulate list of issues where the things that Obama says and the things that he does differ.
