Congress func­tions as deficit com­mis­sion

The Kansas City Star (Sunday) - - LETTERS - Charles R. Martin

The fed­eral deficit has more than tripled in the last two years. Pres­i­dent Barack Obama has cre­ated a “com­mis­sion” to make rec­om­men­da­tions on how to re­duce the deficit.

One won­ders if he rec­og­nizes that the deficit has bal­looned dra­mat­i­cally since the Democrats gained con­trol of both the House and Se­nate and even more dra­mat­i­cally since he as­sumed of­fice.

And by the way, has it occurred to the pres­i­dent and to every­one else that a bud­get com­mis­sion al­ready ex­ists? It’s called Congress.
