POTUS Barack Obama the Impotent Pantywaist Surrender Monkey* created the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform early this year. The goal is paring the budget back. However, when you have Upsurping Prevaricator in charge, the goal is rapidly becoming a way to raise taxes without taking responsibility. This is the POTUS way. Blame it on Bush. Blame it on the Tea Party. Blame it on the Republicans. Now, we can blame it on a panel of non-elected has-beens especially chosen to a) help POTUS goals to get deeper in your pockets and b) get thrown under the bus without any political repercussions.
Here is how they plan to cut the budget: deductions on mortgage interest remain on the table just weeks before the deficit commission issues recommendations on policies to pare back with the aim of balancing the budget by 2015. Also child tax credits and the ability of employees to pay their portion of their health-insurance tab with pretax dollars. The officials are also looking at potential cuts to defense spending and a freeze on domestic discretionary spending.
The White House has said these and other breaks cost the government about $1 trillion a year.
Hey, I am buying a new Rolls Royce this year. Unfortunately, I am short a couple hundred thou to buy it. Tell you what, I’ll be like POTUS, and just take it from my neighbors. They drive 15 year-old Toyotas and Dodge pickups. So they don’t need the money anyway, and I balance my budget.
