Obama in 2006: It's a sad state of affairs that we just voted to raise the debt limit"


President Barack Obama lied and bullied Republicans Monday on yet another debt ceiling increase ... but it was a whole different story back in 2006 when the then-Sen. Obama voted against a debt ceiling increase.

"We are voting on the budget today," he said at a March 16, 2006 event. "It's a sad state of affairs. We just voted to increase the debt limit. The U.S. total debt at this point exceeds $8 trillion. That's 8 trillion with a 'T.' So we've got to get our fiscal house in order here in Washington. I'm not sure it's going to happen under the current leadership in Congress."

The debt now stands at $16.4 trillion. That's 16.4 "trillion with a 'T'." And the spendaholic wants to take it higher.
