Debt Redux - When Will People Learn

That's right, you just keep on believing that the Republicans are going to save you -
No plan under serious consideration cuts spending in the way you and I think about it. Instead, the "cuts" being discussed are illusory, and are not cuts from current amounts being spent, but cuts in projected spending increases. This is akin to a family "saving" $100,000 in expenses by deciding not to buy a Lamborghini, and instead getting a fully loaded Mercedes, when really their budget dictates that they need to stick with their perfectly serviceable Honda. But this is the type of math Washington uses to mask the incriminating truth about their unrepentant plundering of the American people.
The Real Effect
Obviously the right is now taking hits off the hope and change bong. I love listening to the local talking heads who keep referring to this as an imperfect plan and a potential political victory. Yes, yes. We all know that you graduated last year and got your big boy pants, but you were wrong in 1994, wrong in 2000, wrong in 2008 and YOU'RE WRONG NOW. Quite honestly I don't know why we can't jettison half these brain dead ignoramuses.

Put simply, you spent the family (government) budget on giving our neighbors all of our tech advantages who chain their kids in the basements and the local trade board imparts massive trade tariffs on us. (Some free trade) Then, you open up the household refrigerator to the next door neighbor kids who proceed to pig out. Finally, after maxing out all the family credit cards, you scream and yell at the populace that if they don't let you get another credit card after you downsize from your Lamborghini to your Mercedes that it's our fault that our family is broke?!?

Nice one there Dad. Nice. Now save us some headaches and go jump off a cliff.
