Obama Keen On Destroying America: He Will Reject All Republican Proposed Spending Cuts

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told “Fox News Sunday” that President Obama will  neither sign government funding bills that slash domestic spending nor negotiate  with Republicans over spending cuts to raise the federal debt limit.

However, he would not say whether the president would veto proposals and put  the responsibility on Capitol Hill.

“Congress has to do its work,” Lew said.

He also repeated what the administration has said in the weeks ahead of talks  on short-term funding for federal agencies before a Sept. 30 deadline — that  Capitol Hill lawmakers must replace so-called sequester cuts with less drastic  ones.

“Congress should find a way out of sequester,” Lew said.

The across-the-board cuts to Defense Department and domestic spending began  in March, after Washington failed to agree on a more even approach.

He also said the president was not going to accept a budget in which domestic  spending is further cut to soften the blow to Defense spending.

“That’s unacceptable,” Lew, who appeared on three Sunday shows to re-enforce  the president’s positions,  told  NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “He won’t  sign that.”

He told ABC’s “This Week” that the president has been “crystal clear” that  raising the country’s debt limit this fall in non-negotiable.
