After voting for crap sandwich, Sen. Graham says it’s time to cut spending

The debt ceiling fight is where we can make major spending changes and prevent the country from becoming Greece.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Last night, the Senate passed legislation, which prevents the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts for 99 percent of Americans.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Additionally, without this legislation, draconian cuts to our national defense will take place.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Finally, this legislation reverses the President’s decision to give Congress a pay raise.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Its unfortunate President refused to discuss spending cuts in this legislation. He will not have that luxury in upcoming debt limit debate.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Debt limit debate will be our best opportunity to get a handle on the out of control spending, which will bankrupt us if left unaddressed.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

I have repeatedly made it clear I will not vote to raise the debt ceiling unless we address why we are going further in debt.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

The time has come for the President to face up to the need to control federal spending and the growth of entitlements.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

If we do not change course in our spending habits, the United States will become Greece.

— Lindsey Graham (@GrahamBlog) January 1, 2013

Sounds good, but at the end of the day, Graham voted for a bill that raised taxes by $41 for every dollar in spending cuts. So, understandably, most tweeters weren’t in the mood to hear his tough talk:

@grahamblog Linsey Graham you are a disgrace as a Senator and you should never hold office again you dont stand for anything but yourself !

I’m a bit disconsolate at GOP Senators, who have for 3+ years NOT held the Pres. to account, telling me that now they will. (@grahamblog)

@grahamblog so when are you going to stop it and stop bending over for Obama?

— al white (@alsjeep2003) January 1, 2013

@grahamblog so why did you vote for a bill that doesn’t address the reckless spending? #TCOT #Taxpayers #GOP

@grahamblog I still say most of you acted cowardly, worried about your reelections. Should have stood up for what you know is right!

— Gary Lewis (@steelersfn4life) January 1, 2013

@grahamblog you should have thought about that before you voted yes.
