Rep. Cole: Democrats Didn’t Bother to Worry About a $1.4 Trillion Deficit Under Obama

‘The real question is when is somebody going to get serious about entitlement reform around here?’

EXCERPT:

COLE: “I think the real question is when is somebody going to get serious about entitlement reform around here? I’ve got legislation that would actually start us down that road on Social Security, carry it with my friend, the Democrat John Delaney. That’s where you get serious. I’m not too worried about Democrats who didn’t bother to worry about a $1.4 trillion deficit under Obama, but I am worried that we have a Republican administration that’s put forward nothing serious in the way of Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. That’s 60 percent of all federal spending of those three programs. So until you get serious about that, you won’t come anywhere close to balancing the budget.”
