Video: Cato Institute’s SOTU response

It’s actually more of a fact check than a response, as Cato pulls apart some of the claims made by Barack Obama in last night’s State of the Union speech. The first and easiest target is Obama’s claim that we have enacted spending “cuts,” when we haven’t actually cut anything except the rate of increase in future spending — and only theoretically. But don’t stop there, as Cato’s scholars deconstruct most of the rest of Obama’s claims.
