Where is the President's Plan to Balance the Budget?

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BROOKS. Mr. Speaker, yesterday President Obama gave a speech to the Nation about the debt ceiling. He said, I won't bore you with the details of every plan or proposal. Mr. Speaker, I say please bore us with the details.

The House passed the Cut, Cap, and Balance plan that prevents a national bankruptcy by modestly cutting spending, capping the size of government, and advocating a balanced budget amendment to force Congress to act responsibly. In contrast, the President gives fine speeches, yet fails to submit a single written plan to balance the budget that can be evaluated by the American people.

Mr. Speaker, I say bore us with the details. Washington's spending binge has put America $14 trillion in debt.

America's future is at risk. Congress welcomes written detailed solutions to Washington's spending binge from the President.

Mr. Speaker, I reiterate, please bore us with the details. America has a right to hear them. President Obama has a duty to deliver them.
