Bi-Partisan Bowles & Simpson Blast Obama’s Vaunted “Fiscal Cliff” Deal: “We’re the Healthiest Horse in the Glue Factory. . . . The Trajectory of Debt, Deficit and Interest will Match any of the PIGS Countries” – Video 1/6/13
Here is video of Democrat Erskine Bowles and Republican Alan Simpson on “Meet the Press” today where they blasted Obama’s vaunted “Fiscal Cliff” Deal as essentially worthless when it comes to dealing with the nation’s massive debt. These two men led Obama’s own “Debt Commission,” which he has totally ignored as far as implementing their findings.
Erskine Bowles said flatly “We have GOT to reduce this entitlement spending.” Simpson quoted Bowles as saying about the United States under Obama, “We’re the healthiest horse in the glue factory right now.” Simpons went on: “The trajectory of debt, deficit and interest will match any of the PIGS countries – Portugal, Ireland, Italy, [Greece] Spain. . .”
