Carney: ‘Of Course the President Believes We Have a Spending Problem’


Following repeated denials from high-ranking Democrats, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters earlier this afternoon that “of course the president believes we have a spending problem.” 

Carney’s admission comes on the heels of Nancy Pelosi’s Fox News Sunday interview yesterday when she said, “It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem.” The president also reportedly told John Boehner that the federal government doesn’t have a spending problem during the fiscal-cliff negotiations last year.
