Why does President Obama continue the spending spree? What part of BROKE does he not understand? While Americans are continuing to tighten their belts and deal with higher expenses, nearly 10% unemployment and an economy that is flat - the Barack Obama continues to spend on social welfare programs, take lavish vacations, throw Hollywood-style parties and increase our taxes to pay for it all. Enough is enough. The nation is broke. The people are fed up. We're not going to take it any more.
