Time will tell if the media will again let President Obama get away with misleading the public.
During a recent press conference, the president framed the debt ceiling increase as not being caused by a spending problem but rather a mere formality to ensure we pay our bills.
This was demonstrated when the president said, "The issue here is whether Washington will pay its bills."
It will be a shame if the media lets the president get away with this absurd and irresponsible spin. The media should bring to the attention of the president and the less-informed population that the only reason a nation goes into debt is because it is spending more than it has.
Never miss a local story.
When will the media come to the aid of this nation and demand this administration submit an annual budget with a recovery plan to get us to a balanced budget?
If we do not get our spending under control soon, the resulting obvious consequences will become the nation's No. 1 problem for many future generations to resolve. If the media allows this spin, perhaps we need Congress to pass a law requiring all media members to have basic finance training.
