Boehner Releases List of 222 Economists That Say Obama's Federal Spending Has Got To STOP!

Check out the latest web video from the Republican Study Committee and its Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) on President Obama’s job killing agenda. It asks a question Republicans have been asking all year long amidst the Democrats’ massive spending binge: Where are the jobs?


House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) released a list of 222 economists who believe that getting federal spending under control is the only way to create jobs and return America to economic prosperity. Contrary to President Obama and his supporters, these economists believe that additional stimulus spending can only further America's economic woes.

The statement supported by 222 economists from across the country reads:

list of 222 here at

The country’s economic future depends on Congress’ ability to rein in the growth of federal spending. Failing to restrict spending growth will further balloon the national debt, impede economic growth, and threaten the long-term economic health of our Nation. Controlling spending growth to reverse our dangerous debt accumulation can be done without endangering the near-term economic recovery, and will prove beneficial over the longer horizon.

The 2009 near-term “stimulus” has proven to be an inefficient spur to job creation and does not merit repeating. Any further policy efforts should be focused on opening borders to free trade, cutting burdensome regulations, and providing necessary tax relief to employers and employees.

Good for Boehner.

They need to keep hitting Obama as hard as possible. The more people that see how wrong Obama is and how he is doing all this destruction on purpose them maybe more of them will wake up. I sure hope so.

The only way to stop Obama's spending is to vote democrats out of congress.

The Democrats are like a fat kid in a candy shop.
They think money is there for their socialist pet causes. They also believe spending on those causes will buy votes and get them reelected. It will take generations of frugality just to pay back what obama has already proposed to be spent.
