  • "We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits don't matter and waste is not our problem," he said. "We can no longer afford to leave the hard choices for the next budget, the next administration -- or the next generation." - Obama, May 7, 2009, while discussing his 17 billion budget cuts, speaking as if he has just saved the country.
  • I have only one question (that never seems to be asked of him or Congress) - if you increase the budget by 300 billion (for a new total of 3.55 TRILLION), and then cut 17 billion, how is that an actual cut?
  • Here it is without all the extra zeros: 3100 + 467 - 17 = 3550
  • So, what the headlines SHOULD be screaming is - 450 BILLION INCREASE IN FEDERAL BUDGET.
  • But since nobody ever calls Obama on lying and deception, he can claim a 17 billion CUT in the budget.
  • MEANWHILE, OVER IN CONGRESS - The House wants to increase Members’ office budgets next fiscal year by almost 15 percent ($90 million), citing increases “due to the election year cycle.”
