Saturday Morning Radio Address
|Good morning. Over the last three
months, my Administration has taken aggressive action to confront
an historic economic crisis. As we do everything that we can to
create jobs and get our economy moving, we’re also building a
new foundation for lasting prosperity – a foundation that invests
in quality education, lowers health care costs, and develops new
sources of energy powered by new jobs and industries.
deficits -- under both Democrats and Republicans -- are so chronic
that it is breathtakingly immoral and unethical. It is off the
charts. It is pathological.
|One of the pillars of that
foundation must be fiscal discipline. We came into office facing a
budget deficit of $1.3 trillion for this year alone, and the cost
of confronting our economic crisis is high. But we cannot settle
for a future of rising deficits and debts that our children cannot
|All across America, families are
tightening their belts and making hard choices. Now, Washington
must show that same sense of responsibility. That is why we
have identified two trillion dollars in deficit-reductions over
the next decade, while taking on the special interest spending
that doesn’t advance the peoples’ interests.
Boortz has suggested attaching "The Boortz Addendum"
to every appropriation bill offered in Congress. This addendum
would read something like this:
Every sponsor or co-sponsor of this legislation hereby
affirms his or her belief that the need for the federal
government of the United States to spend taxpayer funds on the
purposes outlined herein is of greater importance and urgency
than any spending needs which the party or parties who actually
earned these funds may have; such needs being, but not
necessarily limited to, spending for medical care, child care,
housing, food, clothing, transportation, education, insurance,
savings and retirement planning, and religious tithes or
|But we must also recognize that
we cannot meet the challenges of today with old habits and stale
thinking. So much of our government was built to deal with
different challenges from a different era. Too often, the result
is wasteful spending, bloated programs, and inefficient results.
time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in
Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st
century, we need to reform our government so that it is more
efficient, more transparent, and more creative. That will demand
new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar
that is spent.
||The first fundamental
change should be to stop inflating the money supply to create
money for government programs.
|Earlier this week, I held my
first Cabinet meeting and sent a clear message: cut what doesn’t
work. Already, we’ve identified substantial savings. And in the
days and weeks ahead, we will continue going through the budget
line by line, and we’ll identify more than 100 programs that
will be cut or eliminated.
|But we can’t stop there. We
need to go further, and we need an all-hands-on-deck approach to
reforming government. That’s why I’m announcing several steps
that my Administration will take in the weeks ahead to restore
fiscal discipline while making our government work better.
|First, we need to adhere to the
basic principle that new
tax or entitlement policies should be paid for. This principle –
known as PAYGO – helped transform large deficits into surpluses
in the 1990s. Now, we must restore that sense of fiscal
discipline. That’s why I’m calling on Congress to pass PAYGO
legislation like a bill that will be introduced by Congressman
Baron Hill, so that government acts the same way any responsible
family does in setting its budget.
|Second, we’ll create new
incentives to reduce wasteful spending and to invest
in what works. We don’t want agencies to protect bloated budgets
– we want them to promote effective programs. So the idea is
simple: agencies that identify savings will get to keep a portion
of those savings to invest
in programs that work. The result will be a smaller budget, and a
more effective government.
||It became common
during the Clinton Administration to speak of government spending
as an "investment."
Congress might also therefore attach the following to each
By voting for this legislation I hereby affirm my belief that
the information and knowledge possessed by me and 434 other
Congressman-"investors" is greater than the collective
knowledge and information possessed by a Free Market of 150
million individual investors, pension fund managers, insurance
company executives, mutual fund administrators, and brokers, all
of whom do not have the luxury of obtaining investment funds by
passing a law, but must earn their investment
|Third, we’ll look for ideas
from the bottom up. After all, Americans across the country know
that the best ideas often come from workers – not just
management. That’s why we’ll establish a process through which
every government worker can submit their ideas for how their
agency can save money and perform better. We’ll put the
suggestions that work into practice. And later this year, I will
meet with those who come up with the best ideas to hear firsthand
about how they would make your government more efficient and
|And finally, we will reach beyond
the halls of government. Many businesses have innovative ways of
using technology to save money, and many experts have new ideas to
make government work more efficiently. Government can – and must
– learn from them. So later this year, we will host a forum on
reforming government for the 21st century, so that we’re also
guided by voices that come from outside of Washington.
cannot sustain deficits that mortgage our children’s future,
nor tolerate wasteful inefficiency. Government has a
responsibility to spend the peoples’ money wisely, and to serve
the people effectively. I will work every single day that I am
President to live up to that responsibility, and to transform our
government so that is held to a higher standard of performance on
behalf of the American people.

Response of the Republican Party

Republican Radio Address | SEN. LAMAR
ALEXANDER, R-TENN., CHAIRMAN, SENATE REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE
|Do you remember a few years
ago when our Congress got mad at France and banned French
fries in the House of Representatives cafeteria?
|We Americans always have
had a love-hate relationship with the French. Which was why
it was so galling last month when the Democratic Congress
passed a budget with such big deficits that it makes the
United States literally ineligible to join France in the
|Now of course we don’t
want to be in the European Union. We’re the United States
of America. But French deficits are lower than ours, and
their president has been running around sounding like a
Republican -- lecturing our president about spending so
|Now the debate in Congress
is shifting to the size of your electric and gasoline bills
and to climate change. So guess who has one of the lowest
electric rates in Western Europe and the second lowest
carbon emissions in the entire European Union.
|It’s France again.
|And what’s more,
they’re doing it with a technology we invented and have
been reluctant to use: nuclear power.
|Thirty years ago, the
contrary French became reliant on nuclear power when others
wouldn’t. Today, nuclear plants provide 80 percent of
their electricity. They even sell electricity to Germany,
whose politicians built windmills and solar panels and
promised not to build nuclear plants.
|Which was exactly the
attitude in the United States between 1979 and 2008 - when
not one new nuclear plant was built. Still, nuclear, which
supplies just 20 percent of all U.S. electricity, provides
70 percent of our pollution-free electricity.
|So you’d think that if
Democrats want to talk about energy and climate change and
clean air, they’d put American-made nuclear power front
and center. Instead, their answer is billions
in subsidies for renewable energy from the sun, the
wind and the earth.
Republicans have consistently voted against these
|Well, we Republicans like
renewable energy, too.
|We proposed a new Manhattan
Project - like the one in World War II - to find ways to
make......solar power cost-competitive and to improve
advanced biofuels. But today, renewable electricity from the
sun, the wind and the earth provides only about 1 1/2
percent of America’s electricity. Double it or triple it,
and we still don’t have very much.
|So there is a potentially a
dangerous energy gap between the renewable electricity we
want and the reliable electricity we must have. To close
that gap, Republicans say start
with conservation and efficiency. We have so much
electricity at night, for example, we could electrify half
our cars and trucks and plug them in while we sleep without
building one new power plant.
using less -- is a dumb place to start, when the lives of
300 million American depend on increasing the amount
of energy produced.
that, Republicans and Democrats agree.
||This is true.
Both parties exhort us to use less energy, when we
need to consume more energy to increase our health,
safety, and comfort and that of future (larger) generations.
|But when it comes to
producing more energy, we disagree.
|When Republicans say, build
100 new nuclear power plants during the next twenty years,
Democrats say, no place to put the used nuclear fuel.
|We say, recycle the fuel --
the way France does. They say, no we can’t.
|We say, how about another
Manhattan Project to remove carbon from coal plant
emissions? Imaginary, they say.
|We say, for a bridge to a
clean energy future, find more natural
gas and oil offshore. Farmers, homeowners and
factories must have the natural gas. And more of the oil
we’ll still need should be ours, instead of sending
||Alaska has all
the natural gas we need for the
next 200 years. Republicans want a socialist
|They can’t wait to put
another ban on offshore drilling.
|We say incentives. They say
|We say, keep prices down.
Democrats say, put a big new national sales tax on electric
bills and gasoline.
|We both want a clean energy
future, but here’s the real difference: Republicans want
to find more American energy, and use less.
||Why use less if
we find more?? This is just political demogoguery.
We need to use more energy.
|Democrats want to use less
- but they really don’t want to find much more.
|They talk about President
Kennedy sending a man to the moon. Their energy proposals
wouldn’t get America halfway to the moon.
|We Republicans didn’t
like it when Democrats passed a budget that gave the French
bragging rights on deficits. So we’re not about to let the
French also outdo us on electric and gasoline bills, clean
air and climate change.
|We say find more American
energy and use less.
Energy that’s as clean as possible, as reliable as
possible, and at as low a cost as possible. And one place to
start is with 100 more nuclear plants.
- Who's going to build these nuclear plants? Whose
money? Who will be liable in case of an accident?

the nuclear industry?

What Would America's Founding Fathers Do?
The men who threw tea into the Boston Harbor over a tax of 3
pence per pound would not be happy with a tax ten times greater on
every gallon of gas. Those who took up muskets over a total tax
burden of less than 3% would not be
happy with the fact that the federal government now takes more
than half of everything you earn.
Today it is illegal for public school teachers to teach their
students that the Declaration of Independence is really true (and
not just an outdated historical document). The federal government is
clearly at war with everything the Founding Fathers stood for.
America's greatest Americans would abolish
today's federal government.
Muskets are Not an Option
There are two reasons why we should not take up arms to pull off
the violent overthrow of the federal government, even if America's
Founders would surely do so. First, the feds have nukes. Second,
violent revolution is unChristian and unBiblical. We must beat our swords
into plowshares and use persuasion to
abolish tyranny. This is time for a
revolution of ideas.
Revolution Won't Come in a Day
John Adams once wrote that the American
Revolution began in 1761, when Massachusetts attorney James Otis
began legal challenges to the Writs
of Assistance. He lost the case, but "American
independence," Adams wrote, "was
then and there born." Now do the math. That means it took 15
years to convince the rest of America to declare
Independence (1776). Then another seven years of war was
required before a Peace Treaty was signed (1783), and then six
years before the Constitution was finally ratified (1789).
That's almost 30 years. (And Jefferson said we shouldn't go 20
years without another rebellion!) How can we hope to convince
Americans to fight for principles they were never taught in
government schools? We need to be in this battle for the long term.
