Obama says Approving Gov Spending, Basic Funtion of Congress

Barack Obama

 

Obama was interviewed on NPR on Monday…

“They’re not doing me a favor by paying for things that they have already approved for the government to do. That’s part of their basic function of government; that’s not doing me a favor. That’s doing what the American people sent them here to do, carrying out their responsibilities.”

So, Mr. President, if the  House is saying we cannot afford Obamacare and is not going to approve spending on it, who are you to stand in the way of Congress carrying out their responsibilities

You rail against the idea of not raising the debt limit. Your reasoning is that Congress approved the spending in the past that has lead to the current need to borrow (increase the debt of the nation). You say that it’s the basic function of congress to approve how the government spends money and it should do what the American people sent them to Washington to do, but you throw a hissy-fit when Congress does it’s job by not approving spending for your programs that at least half the country does not want.
