Barack Obama Washington, March 23 (DPA) Influential US Republican Party Senator Judd Gregg Sunday harshly criticised the budget proposed by President Barack Obama’s administration, saying that it would bring the country into bankruptcy in a decade.
Speaking to CNN, the one-time Obama cabinet nominee said the size of the budget deficits involved in the Obama administration plan over time was “almost unconscionable.”

Considered a financial expert, Gregg compared the US president to a pilot ignoring that his aircraft has 15-minutes of fuel left and planning to fly for another two hours.

“The plane crashes and our country will crash and we’ll pass on to our kids a country that’s not affordable,” he said.
