Did Obama shed a tear when he shoved old people under the bus?
The White House says the president’s plan would cut spending by $1.22 trillion over 10 years, compared with $1.2 trillion in cuts from the Republicans’ initial offer. Of that, $800 billion is cuts to programs, and $122 billion comes from adopting a new measure of inflation that slows the growth of government benefits, especially Social Security. The White House is also counting on $290 billion in savings from lower interest costs on a reduced national debt.
In other words, the administration is jiggering the numbers to "trade" my deferred compensation for tax increases on the 1% they'll just get their accountants to evade anyhow. What kind of "trade" is it when I get to eat catfood and some rich fuck decides not to buy that Hermès yacht cover he[s been coveting?
Have I mentione lately what an asshole Obama is?
