President Obama’s 2012 budget will be roughly $3,800,000 million ($3.8 trillion).
The anticipated 2012 budget deficit will be $1,500,000 million ($1.5 trillion). (for the Third Year in a Row!!) This means we are borrowing that amount from our children to fund all of the Democrats’ Utopian spending programs.
Finally, the president has proposed “tough budget cuts” that total $775 million.
No, that’s not a joke. Unfortunately.
Let’s illustrate the magnitude of Obama’s cuts.
CAN YOU SEE IT?? if you can, you have super vision!
Obama’s cuts aren’t even visible in this chart. Let’s zoom in.
Blowing it up about ten times allows us to see a tiny little sliver: those are the cuts.
See it now, that little tiny sliver? Still need Superman’s vision to see it?
Blowing the chart up a further ten times still barely exposes Obama’s proposed cuts.
…Lew said that the Valentine’s Day budget will proposed cutting in half community service block grants to grassroots groups in poor communities… He said “this cut is not easy for” Obama.
Our country’s going bankrupt and he can’t find anything to cut.
These Democrats are so far off the reservation that there’s really no hope left for them as a political party. This degree of dishonesty and wanton fiscal destruction must be rewarded with political obliteration.
And just to add Insult to Injury
The Left’s favorite garbage-in garbage-out justifiers for ObamaCare, The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) testified to this , this week:
Testifying today before the House Budget Committee, Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Director Doug Elmendorf confirmed that Obamacare is expected to reduce the number of jobs in the labor market by an estimated 800,000. Here are excerpts from the exchange:
Chairman [Paul] Ryan: “[I]t’s been argued…that the new health care law will create jobs and increase labor force participation. But if I recall from your analysis, it was quite the opposite. Is that not the case?”
Director [Douglas] Elmendorf : “Yes.”…
Rep. [John] Campbell: Thank you, Mr. Chairman, we’ll — and Dr. Elmendorf — and we’ll continue this conversation right now. First on health care, before I get to — before I get to broader issues, you just mentioned that you believe — or that in your estimate, that the health care law would reduce the labor used in the economy by about 1/2 of 1 percent, given that, I believe you say, there’s 160 million full-time people working in ’20-’21. That means that, in your estimation, the health care law would reduce employment by 800,000 in ’20-’21. Is that correct?
Director Elmendorf: Yes. The way I would put it is that we do estimate, as you said, that…employment will be about 160 million by the end of the decade. Half a percent of that is 800,000.
So anyone for Knives and bear skins? That’s all we’ll have if these idiots continue.
Liberals must be defeated. Period. We can’t afford their idiocy anymore.
And anyone who mentions “tough choices” by the Democrats or the President feel free to laugh openly in their face!
