But there have also been some interesting speeches to the opposite. For example, in a speech on the Senate floor, one Senator said, "Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. . .I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit."
To be fair, President Obama's admonition against the irresponsibility of not raising the debt ceiling happened in 2011. The Senator's speech was given in 2006.
Who was the Senator?
The Junior Senator from Illinois.
|I was for the debt ceiling before I was against it.|
What would Senator Obama have to say about President Obama? So much for those "professional politicians," huh?
