"SPIN METER Obama's latest budget tightening effort hardly makes a dime's worth of difference

Published:

It was suggested by a friend that current insane spending is being done on purpose to bankrupt the US so that they can say they tried to save the economy.  Now bankrupt we get incorporated into the North American Union whether US citizens like it or not.  Sounds like what's happening, run away freight train down a steep grade, Republican fiscal conservatives stabbed in the back by RINOS enjoying $$$pecial interest perk$$$$.

Big woop to sudden spending consciousness.

"SPIN METER: Saving federal money the easy way
SPIN METER: Obama's latest budget-tightening effort hardly makes a dime's worth of difference

"WASHINGTON (AP) -- Cut a latte or two out of your annual budget and you've just done as much belt-tightening as President Barack Obama asked of his Cabinet on Monday.

The thrifty measures Obama ordered for federal agencies are the equivalent of asking a family that spends $60,000 in a year to save $6. ............."

It's a joke, pure symbolism for the non-thinking, puppetotuspos is a joke, the media is a joke, this country is close to becoming a joke.

Thanks Jarasan, what gets me is they're not bothering to conceal anything anymore, or maybe reality has been altered so by "global warming" their motives are sooooo out there for anyone looking.

Other than people who are really into politics, most people get their info from the local evening news. The news will spend far more time on local stories, sports & weather than on this. DARPA giveth the internet. They plan on taking it away (this 'wild west' version, anyway).

Thanks Time*treat!!! If current insane spending, resulting guaranteed tax hikes for all working people don't get people's attention nothing ever will.

Hopefully the "Apology Tour" is about over while there is still a small shred of respect left for the USA. In the last 79 days he uhh,uhhh,ummm,uhh.. sorry ,I lost my place on my teleprompter, he has done what it took Chavez years to do. He has taken over the automobile business, now is taking shares of stock in big banks as a form of repayment for TARP loans and with a penstroke can grant amnesty to around 30 million illegal aliens who will then vote for him when he does away with term limits and become our own Marxist dictator for life. Sheesh, I don't even know my own country anymore!!
