Obama Talks Tough on Debt Ceiling and Deficit Deal

With the date that we hit the debt ceiling looming, and progress coming along at a glacial pace, President Obama is trying once again to kick lawmakers into gear. With growing frustration at the lack of solutions, President Obama has stopped pointing the finger at just Republicans and shifted some of his attention to democrats as well, calling on members of both parties to put aside their differences and find common ground and solutions to these problems. Not only does this make the President’s desire for a budget solution clear, but this new strategy also paints himself as a moderate who can appeal to independent and middle of the road voters.
