Government Spending

Reason.tv: iPhone and oBama—Two Expensive New Models (Reason.tv SOTU response!)

|

President Obama spent last year's State of the Union address celebrating spending programs past (hooray, stimulus!) and proposing new budget-busters. The shellacking Democrats took during the 2010 midterm elections was supposed to change all that, but at Tuesday night's SOTU Obama reverted to his "throw-money-at-every-conceivable-problem" self.

Yes he included some proposals to cut spending, but those are as likely to vanish as the spending hikes are likely to swell.

Could the "new" Obama be even more expensive than last year's model?

Approximately 1 minute.
