Obama today said: “[T]here are some hard choices that lie ahead. Just as a family has to make hard choices about where to spend and where to save, so do we as a government.”
How hard will the choices be? I’ll tell you how hard: his new budget is $3.55 trillion.
If that’s not making the hard choices, I don’t know what is.
Speaking of things that are hard to do, it was hard to write this post without using several expletives.
Then I read that this budget amounts to $25,000 per taxpayer, and it got harder.
I’m going to stop writing now. The kids are asleep, so I need to find a pillow to scream into. Thanks for reading.
It was posted yesterday, but I’m just reading it today. I love this line: “One must take a stand. One simply must.”
The Rocky Mountain News bites the dust.
P.S. I will occasionally point out when I post something in the evening that I put up on Twitter at lunchtime. This is one of those times.
The other day I mocked Obama’s radio address in which he “expressed determination to ‘get exploding deficits under control.'”
Everyone has to eat crow on occasion, and with today’s news, I have to say: “Boy is my face red!”
President Barack Obama is sending Congress a budget Thursday that projects the government’s deficit for this year will soar to $1.75 trillion . . .
See? Only $1.75 trillion! Why, just imagine how bad it would have been without his determination to get exploding deficits under control!
I feel confident he has created or saved at least another $1.75 trillion with his deficit-controlling determination. So, you know, thank God for that.
