“No business or nonprofit leader would allow this kind of duplication or unnecessary complexity in their operations,” Obama said. “So why is it okay in our government? It’s not. It has to change.” - the Washington Post
After pushing for sweeping tax cuts for the middle class and cutting the military budget, President Obama is now suggesting another budget cutting move. According to the Washington Post , Barrack Obama wants congress to approve the consolidation of 5 federal agencies, including Commerce and the Small Business Administration. Could the U.S. president, who spent generously early in his term, now be interested in fiscal conservatism? Or are these moves to attract voters who value eliminating U.S. debt to help with his 2012 bid fro reelection?
