Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) issued the following statement in reaction to President Barrack Obama's speech on the national debt at George Washington University today:
"I am glad to see the House has gotten the President's attention on the impending debt crisis and glad he has finally decided to talk about it. Unfortunately, his plan includes more out-of-control spending, tripling the debt in 10 years and job-killing tax increases. The House budget reduces spending responsibly, and saves Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security for future generations. We need bold leadership, and if the President won't lead, we will."
