President Barack Obama ended his first term by slashing at the GOP’s motives, rejecting any significant spending curbs, and listing the Americans he intends to deny funds to during the pending clash over the nation’s fast-growing $16.4 trillion debt.
“If congressional Republicans refuse to pay Americans’ bills on time, Social Security checks and veterans’ benefits will be delayed,” he said during a Monday morning press conference, during which he denounced GOP calls for spending curbs, and instead demanded greater taxes.
