“We need a better understanding … of what kind of plan the Obama administration has to confront our skyrocketing debt and our broken entitlement programs,” said Senator Orrin Hatch, the top Republican on the finance panel.

That’s rich! Presidents don’t have control of the budget, can’t spend tax payer money and can’t cut spending without Congressional approval. My question for you Mr. Hatch, what the hell were you thinking from 2000 – 2006 when you guys should have been reducing the debt when the economy was running well. Instead of spending money like drunken sailors.
