Crapo Disagrees w/Obama Priorities

Like many, I watched with great interest President Obama’s recent State of the Union Address, in which he outlined his priorities.  Fiscal reform and economic growth should top the list of priorities for the President and Congress over the next four years.  The debt crisis is the most pressing issue facing our nation today.  In the midst of this crisis, the President and Congress have the opportunity to reform our badly broken tax system, address the federal spending problem and promote a sustainable economic recovery that will result in increased jobs. Over the last four years, our national debt has increased $6 trillion to $16.5 trillion.  This spending spree must stop.  The President claims the actions taken in the last two years have nearly solved our fiscal crisis.  Nothing could be further from the truth/U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho. More here. (AP file photo of U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo)

Question: I agree with U.S. Sen. Crapo that the debt crisis is the most pressing issue facing this country. And I don't feel a sense of urgency from the Obama administration to deal with it. What do you think?
