Meanwhile, former Obama pal New Hampshire Senator Judd Gregg took discussed the president's budget in the Republican's weekly video/radio address.Basically, Gregg supports it. Except that it costs too much, taxes too much and increases government too much -- and everything else.
But at least the president is being up front about it, Gregg went on to say.
“The President to his credit is not trying to hide this; in fact he is very forthright in stating that he believes that by greatly expanding the spending, the taxing and the borrowing of our government, this will lead us to prosperity," he said.
“Here of course is where we differ. We believe you create prosperity by having an affordable government that pursues its responsibilities without excessive costs, taxes or debt. That it is the individual American who creates prosperity and good jobs, not the government."
