Issa: For Nation’s Future, Collar Spending Now

Regrettably, the president has chosen to demagogue the Republican plan as “shortsighted” and “excessively partisan,” rather than engage with a responsible plan of his own. Meanwhile, the country is barraged with administration officials prophesying an economic doomsday as the Aug. 2 deadline approaches. That’s not leadership, hope or change.

Obama wants us to commit to a future of overspending fueled by higher taxes. We should reject that false choice, cast aside the hype and imaginary deadlines, pass a short-term debt limit increase and agree on a spending plan for 2012 that demonstrates the fiscal restraint the American people are demanding and have a right to expect.

The prosperity of future generations rests on the decisions we make today. It’s time for government to start living within our means.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
