Hoyer, No. 2 House Dem: ‘There is a Spending Problem’

by Andrew Johnson

Minority whip Steny Hoyer admitted on Morning Joe today that “there is a spending problem” in the federal government, a change from comments earlier this month in which he called it a “paying-for problem.” Hoyer continued to push for more new revenues, though. “You got to pay for what you buy, ” the Maryland congressman clarified today. “What I meant by [a 'paying-for problem'] was that you don’t have a problem if you pay for what you buy.”
