Republicans in House the ones to blame for spending problem

February 16, 2013 

If you are a Fox TV viewer, you have heard, “The United States doesn’t have a revenue problem but has a spending problem and it’s the fault of the president and the Democratic-controlled Senate for not passing a budget.”

Of course, you have to remain ignorant of the constitutional requirement that all spending bills originate in the House of Representatives, which is controlled by Republicans, Republicans who are more concerned with your reproductive parts, your religious beliefs and your flag-waving capacity than the financial health of the country.
