Krauthammer’s Take: Obama Has No Interest in Reducing Debt, Deficit

by NRO Staff

President Obama has no interest in reducing the national debt or deficit, Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday night, meaning that the House-Senate conference committee set up by the bill passed tonight won’t result in a bargain.

“That’s never been a priority. The priority is to increase entitlements,” Krauthammer said during a panel appearance on Special Report.

“He believes he’s a leveler; he wants to spread the wealth. He’s been open about that,” Krauthammer said.
