Griffith on State of the Union – Houdini accounting

Congressman Morgan Griffith 9th District

WASHINGTON – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address this evening:

“Americans want results, not just empty rhetoric. I hope that the President is serious about streamlining government and eliminating job-crushing regulations, but the proof is in the pudding. By cutting the number of federal agencies and regulations involved in industry, the private sector will face fewer roadblocks resulting in job creation.

“Regarding the federal budget, the President wants to freeze and spend? He proposes to freeze annual domestic spending, but continue to spend on new programs? How will he do this without adding to the deficit? This ‘Houdini accounting’ defies logic.”
