The Epitome Of A Contradiction – Obama’s Budget


Today, Obama released details on his $3.4 trillion budget plan…and then says…

“We can no longer afford to spend as if deficits don’t matter and waste is not our problem…we can no longer afford to leave the hard choices for the next budget, the next administration — or the next generation.” – Obama

Is he crazy? Or maybe just really smart that he thinks he can fool America into thinking that cutting a little from a huge increase somehow entitles you to say your are cutting the budget? I don’t think so. We thought Bush was over spending (can we say “medicare part D”?) when the deficit was $459 billion. Obama is now going to almost quadruple triple the deficit to approximately $1.8 trillion and then cut it by 12 billion…hum…that is an increase of 392% and then a decrease of 6.6% for a net INCREASE of 385.4%. Since when can you talk about not spending because of the burden of deficit for our children when you increase the deficit yourself by almost 400%!

I think this is the epitome of a contradiction and just a flat out lie. This President just says stuff that sounds good, even to conservatives from time to time, but what he does is completely the opposite. This is the “Change” that was coming.
