Jim Jordan: 'Borrow More, Cut Spending Later' Doesn't Work

Tuesday, 04 Dec 2012 01:33 PM

By Martin Gould and Kathleen Walter

Democrat promises to cut spending once a deal to raise taxes is in place should not be believed — because they are coming from politicians, says Rep. Jim Jordan, the chairman of the conservative Republican Study Group.

“This is not your parents, this is not your pastor, this is not your priest,” Jordan said in an exclusive interview with Newmax.TV. “This is politicians making a promise. When have they kept their word?

“Not one of the scheduled cuts, not one of the promised cuts in the debt ceiling agreement last summer, not one of them have taken place yet and it’s now time to raise the debt ceiling again,” he added.

“So this idea of let us borrow more and we’ll cut spending later, let us tax more and we’ll cut spending later, doesn’t work. And the American people are tired of it.

“This is Lucy, Charlie Brown and the football. Every time Charlie Brown thinks this time she’ll actually hold the ball, it never works. You cannot buy what the White House is telling you. They’ve never kept their word on taxes. Why would they do it now?”
