• Sen. Sessions To Obama Budget Director: “Your Policies Will Never Work”

    Alabama senator Jeff Sessions chided President Obama’s budget director Shaun Donovan during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday for implementing policies that Sessions says have only led to more pain and that have crushed the middle class of America.

    Obama’s policies, pushed by budget director Shaun Donovan, Sessions says, have brought only plummeting median incomes for families over the last several years. It’s “catastrophic,” Sessions said, and it all occurred under President Obama’s watch.

    “The problem is your policies: tax more, spend more, borrow more, and regulate more. That’s what’s caused this problem,” Sessions said. “We got a problem, but your ideas will not work, they will never work.”

    Turning to Obama’s proposed $4 trillion budget, Sessions said that level of spending will endanger the future of the country.

    “Our budget overall reduces spending relative to current expectations,” Donovan said in response to Sessions’ question about whether or not Obama’s budget will spend more than 2011 levels.

    When asked what the most important issue facing their family is, a majority of Americans said problems related to financial woes–issues that Obama’s policies have only made worse.


    Americans see healthcare as a huge financial problem even though we are approaching the fifth anniversary of Obamacare’s implementation–Obamacare, you know; the law that was supposed to solve all of our healthcare-related problems. (Speaking of Obamacare, more than 51 percent of Americans still oppose the law).

    The poll above also shows that people say a “lack of money/low wages, not enough money to pay bills, taxes, unemployment, and college expenses” are all economic shackles trapping them in inescapable stagnation.

    And to think, Obama calls this success.
