I just read an article on msn.com. I feel this is going to be a heated subject in the White House for months to come. I'm going to have to agree with President Obama on this one. We need to cut reckless governmet spending to reduce the national debt. I know it's only going to be a 5 percent freeze but in times like these every penny counts. We also don't want to scare China off because they are the only ones really investing in our country and if we lose them we are screwed. I also like how Obama does not care about how his decisions are going to effect his chance at re-election. His decisions are based on how they benefit the whole country not just for his political gain.
