Recently, Speaker John Boehner reportedly said that, during the fiscal cliff negotiations, Pres. Obama told him that the United States doesn't have a spending problem.
MRCTV decided to find out if the attendees at Pres. Obama's inauguration agreed with the notion that government spending is not a serious issue.
Some agreed with Obama. "He's spent less than any other president," one attendee told MRCTV.
Others said there is spending problem - but, Obama isn't to blame because it's someone else's fault.
