Members of the Kansas delegation weren't impressed with President Obama's proposal to freeze domestic spending for three years. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., said: "I am pleased the president is concerned with our ever expanding federal deficit. However, his proposed efforts are a drop in the bucket and inconsistent with the ongoing actions of his party in Congress." Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, said that "we need bold leadership to cut spending throughout the budget not just around the edges," and he called on Obama to "repeal the so-called stimulus bill and end the TARP bailout program." Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, complained that the freeze won't start until 2011, will last only three years and will not affect the more than $862 billion in stimulus funds still to be spent. "Our country is facing a $1.3 trillion deficit this year alone, and the president’s recommendations are simply not enough," Moran said.
