Many Republicans are upset with President Barack Obama’s unwillingness to restrain the budget deficit, which now totals almost 10 percent of GDP. Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., gives voice to the frustration in a Washington Post opinion piece.

sessions, obama, deficit“As record levels of federal spending bring us ever closer to a tipping point, the Obama administration blissfully continues business as usual,” Sessions writes. “We have seen no real plan, no strong leadership, no apparent willingness to confront the growing danger on the horizon.”

Obama can’t keep his hand of the spending spigot, Sessions says. “Last month, President Obama would agree to maintain current tax rates only if Congress would agree to increase federal deficit spending. We are headed toward a cliff, yet the president hits the accelerator.”
