Marc Scaringi: Our children will inherit debt from Cash for Clunkers

Scaringi said that as a lawyer, he has represented small businesses and come to understand how the economy works. He accused Casey and President Barack Obama of exploiting the nation's poor economy with bad government policies in the way of bailouts, Cash for Clunkers programs and harmful regulations. Scaringi lamented his children will be among those standing to inherit the nation's federal debt. "Let's restore freedom, liberty and independence," he said.
