Flashback 2006: Obama Calls Raising The Debt Ceiling "Sad," Insists We Must Get Our Financial House In Order

But Verum Serum notes he's also calling for increased spending, even back then, even when he was (don't giggle) a "moderate."

Hmmm... He wants to spend more and yet have less debt.

I wonder what sort of plan he might have had in mind.

Could it be... raising taxes on everybody? Sure would have been nice for the media to have asked about this. Informed consent of the public and all.
