Rep. John Campbell: USA Close To 'Collapse'

Despite $38 billion in federal budget cuts last night, Orange County Congressman John Campbell told Fox News on Saturday morning that the United States soon faces a financial doomsday.

"Really big changes are needed" to future federal government spending habits or, "We are going to collapse in two to five years," predicted Campbell, who sought $100 billion in cuts to the present budget.

Such rhetoric might cause you to believe that the Irvine Republican is critical of the deal House Speaker John Boehner struck with President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats, but that's not the case.

"I don't think John Boehner sold out at all," Campbell said.

Given how much Democrats caved to GOP spending cut pressure, he does think that Boehner should have started negotiations with Obama by demanding much larger cuts.

"But we have to get what we can get," Campbell said, noting that Republicans control only one branch of the government and can't impose their will.

Ironically, Campbell's record on federal spending is viewed as atrocious among some of his fellow Irvine Republicans, who were frustrated that the congressman voted for TARP, the auto industry bailout and the cash for clunkers program.

John Campbell is a rich kid, who inherited his father successful car dealerships and due to being a poor operator drove them into the ground. He was very lucky, that at the time Auto Nation was buying every dealership they could find and bought his. He is an ideologue with a 3rd rate intellect. But being very handsome and a Republican with money he is consistently re-elected in Orange County (although Rohrarbacher is able to to it being incredibly goofy looking). He is a a 'birther'. I have never heard him utter an original thought or have a sensible solution to any problem. An embarrassment to Orange County. GT5

Scott,

The real problem is both parties ignoring the Best Interest of the American people, & pandering to their Special Interests Benefactors - like Greedy Wall Street, & the Military Industrial Complex Warmongers.

Broke soon - probably.

$100B in cuts - a drop in the bucket with the $Trillions in debt they've stuck us with.
