Katrina vanden Heuvel smacks down Karl Rove on fiscal policy
Karl Rove criticized President Obama’s proposed budget this morning on ABC’s This Week. “He’s now going to add more debt in the first 20 months and 11 days than was incurred in 2 wars, 9/11 and the previous administration,” argued Rove.
Not intimidated by Rove, Katrina vanden Heuvel shot back, “It’s laughable for you to talk about fiscal responsibility from someone who helped plunge this nation into trillion dollars of debt through tax cuts of the very rich and a war we never should have fought.”
