Congressional Attack

Mitt Echos Republican Debt Complaints

Congressional Republicans got some support from Mitt Romney in their charge against President Obama's deficit policies. Speaking in front of a debt-counter clock in St. Petersburg, Fla., Wednesday, Romney said "I find it incomprehensible that a president could come to office and call his predecessor's record irresponsible and unpatriotic, and then do almost nothing to fix it and instead every year to add more and more and more spending." Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner threatened to block another debt-ceiling increase if Obama wouldn't allow spending cuts.
