Obama threatens to make seniors eat dog food if Republicans try to put spending cuts in debt ceiling expansion.
“If Congressional Republicans refused to pay America’s bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed,” Obama said.Here's the truth. The President has the authority to allocate spending priorities. The monthly revenues are over $200 billion per month. The monthly cost of paying the interest on our debt is roughly $35 billion. The total the fed spends per month paying social security benefits, $65 billion. That leaves $100 billion to pay for other essential services.
Mr. President, you are an ass.
