Question For You

If Barack Obama can describe the federal budget under George W. Bush as an "orgy of spending", how does he suggest we describe his current fiscal policy? All I've come up with so far is "violent prison rape session of spending".

What an asshat.

And, from the Truly Shocking Files:

The director of the Congressional Budget Office today updated his projections for the budget and economic outlook and is now anticipating a $1.8 trillion deficit this year, and $1.4 trillion in 2010.

This is up from CBO director Douglas W. Elmendorf's January 2009 projection of a $1.2 trillion deficit this year. In short, the US government is borrowing 50 cents for every dollar it spends.

Hey, what's another $600 BILLION between comrades? The way the Obama Express is headed down the track, that will look like a mere rounding error this time next year.

The new projected deficit is four times the 2008 deficit, which was a record high for its time.

Because everyone knows the best way to recover from the harm caused by a reckless spending orgy is to have four spending orgies at once.
