Comrade Obama is right - Congress ordered him to spend money
- Obama can only spend money that Congress gave him. The bi-partisan Big Government Socialists can be found in the Republican controlled House and Democrat Senate.
Conservatism is dead. Long live bi-partisan Socialism.
Our so-called "Constitutional law professor" in the White House is 100% correct this time. It is not that Obama is a Big Government Socialist. He is. More important, Congress is run by right-wing and left-wing Socialists who tax and spend like crazy.
We expect Democrats to be Marxists just like we expect birds to fly. It is a fact of life.
But it is also a fact of life that the GOP has never met a Leftist Big Government spending program they did not protect and fully fund. No matter who is President or who controls Congress, the GOP keeps voting to grow government.

Republicans want to forget.
Explaining why he has no choice but to demand an increase in the legal limit on the national debt, Comrade Barack Obama said at a Monday press conference that Congress orders him to spend money reports CNS News.
“This is a matter of Congress authorizes spending,” Obama said.
“They order me to spend," he said. "They tell me: ‘You need to fund our Defense Department at such-and-such a level. You need to send Social Security checks. You need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans.’ They lay all this out for me, and--because they have the spending power--and so I am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills.”
The current debt ceiling is $16.394 trillion, a number that Obama and House Speaker John Boehner agreed to in August 2011, when they increased the previous limit by $2.4 trillion.
The Constitution gives Congress the power to borrow money. So, the president cannot increase the debt of the United States unless Congress enacts legislation authorizing him to do so.
