Mr. BROOKS. During Barack Obama's 2 years as a freshman Senator, America's debt increased $400 billion. During Obama's next 2 years in the Senate majority, America's debt increased another $1.8 trillion. As President, Barack Obama drove up America's debt another $3 trillion. In Barack Obama's time in Washington, America's debt load has increased by more than $5 trillion. That's a 50 percent increase in just 6 years.
Do you see the pattern? The longer Obama is in Washington, the worse America's debt and the weaker America becomes.
What is President Obama's solution? Obama submits record-high budgets to Congress that continue Washington's unsustainable spending binge. Obama demands a debt ceiling increase with no spending cuts.
Mr. President, America needs White House leadership. If you have a written solution to this debt crisis, please submit it. The American people deserve no less.
