"In his State of the Union address last week, President Obama claimed that he was going to be an agent of fiscal restraint and would reduce this nation's debt. But his latest budget does exactly the opposite: it will increase the national debt by at least $5 trillion over the next five years," stated Log Cabin Republicans National Chairman Terry Hamilton.

"Americans are gravely concerned about the consequences of runaway government spending and the actions taken by the Obama Administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress," added Hamilton. "While tackling efforts to reduce the budget deficit, Congress must not pass another 'stimulus' bill, and a health care reform bill that would balloon the national debt. We praise Senator John McCain for his leadership in calling for an immediate freeze in all non-terrorism related government spending and work to cut the pork-barrel special projects that have allowed the deficit to grow so tremendously," concluded Hamilton.
