Obama’s Spending Freeze is the Same Old, Same Old…

In tonight’s State of the Union Address (join us tonight beginning at 8:45 PM EST for liveblog coverage), President Obama is expected to propose a five-year spending freeze for non-defense discretionary spending.  Such a freeze, while a good baby step, will do nothing to reign in the spending spree that Congress has been on since 2008.  So, we’d freeze the budget, but not roll back any of the trillions of dollars in additional spending that Obama has added to the federal budget since his inauguration in 2008.  Besides, this whole proposal sounds a little too familiar.  I feel like we’ve heard the same song and dance before.
