Obama’s Hypocrisy

Via Powerline

In his budget announcement today, Obama said: “[O]ur government is deeply in debt after what can only be described as a decade of profligacy.”

His budget proposal?

From the Wall Street Journal:

Even with tax hikes and spending cuts, Mr. Obama’s budget foresees a record budget deficit of $1.6 trillion this fiscal year.

And back to Powerline:

In 2006, the last year in which the Republicans controlled Congress, the deficit was $248 billion–one-seventh what Obama proposes for next year.

So, the solution to a decade of profligate spending is…

… even more profligate spending!
