O’Connell: Obama’s Spending Freeze Is Like Stopping A Nuclear Fallout With A Band-Aid

Ford O’Connell’s response to today’s Politico “The Arena” question, “Who’s more serious about spending here?“:

Let’s be honest; neither party has shown us yet that they are serious about spending cuts. President Obama’s proposed five-year freeze is a start, but his solution is like trying to stop the nuclear fallout from Chernobyl with nothing more than a Band-Aid. Until everything is on the table — including entitlements and defense spending — we will get nowhere on this issue.
