President Obama continually has attempted to portray himself as a president who wants America to live within its means. However, no matter how many press conferences he holds, the facts do not lie. He is the biggest-spending president in American history and he is allowing the debt to climb at alarming rates.

How can a man tout fiscal responsibility by saying he will save $1 trillion over the next decade after he and the federal government spent more than $800 billion on a tepid stimulus recovery package within the last year? The United States continues to use credit like a teenager at the mall, and unless steps are taken soon to help reduce the debt, America will fall into another great recession - or worse.
