“Tonight, I’ll lay out additional proposals that are fully paid for and fully consistent with the budget framework both parties agreed to just 18 months ago.
Let me repeat – nothing I’m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime.
Obama lied his ass off.
Obama SOTU price tag: $83.4 billion, his costliest ever
President Obama's new spending projects proposed in Tuesday's State of the Union Address would cost taxpayers an additional $83.4 billion, his most costly SOTU Address ever and more than twice his average of $31 billion.
The National Taxpayers Union Foundation, using Congressional Budget Office and other figures, tallied the price tag of Obama's pet projects and added to Secrets that the costs could "swell" if he succeeds in limiting the impact of mandatory cuts in sequestration.
The powerful tax analysis group noted Obama's promise that his spending won't "add a dime to the deficit," and suggested that Obama would have to raise taxes to make good on his pledge. But because he was so "vague" with the details of his spending and tax play, the NTUF could not make an assessment of taxes.
Let me repeat - Obama lied his ass off.
