President’s budget proposal faces new criticism
April 2, 2009 by Personal Liberty News Desk
American Issues Project (AIP) has added its voice to the growing chorus of criticism against President Obama’s proposed new budget.
The organization, which represents a coalition of conservative activists, is launching a telephone campaign against the proposal and the wasteful spending trend it claims characterizes the new Congress.
"Just when you think they’ve done their worst, Congress and [the] administration continue to amass debt beyond our control," says Ed Martin, president of AIP.
"President Obama has already spent more than [any] other president before him, [and his] is budget is just the latest move to weaken the American economy and the American entrepreneurial drive," he adds.
The phone calls will be made in many states including Colorado, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and urge people to oppose the proposal. The program will also give citizens the option to transfer directly to their senators and congressmen to voice their concern.
In recent weeks, many organizations spoke against Obama’s spending plans. For example, the Republican National Committee blasted the administration’s $3.6 trillion budget proposal as too lavish and based on unrealistic economic expectations.
