Representative David Obey: Principled Fiscal Disciplinarian

$700 billion for bank bailout? You don’t scrimp in the middle of a crisis.

$787 billion stimulus bill?  Sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

$410 billion omnibus spending bill? This is no time to start pinching pennies.

$30 billion for a war that is “in our vital national interest” and in which “the security of the United States and the safety of the American people [are] at stake?”

Whoa, whoa, hold on there cowboy.

How the heck are we supposed to pay for that?
