What? Where? How? When? President Obama has been holding out on us, and his deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter is stepping onto the MSNBC stage – where else – to let everyone know the solution has been presented and half-way implemented, but nobody is listening.
The president has a deficit reduction plan on the table—a detailed plan to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion—$2 trillion of that has already been enacted into law. That’s real progress in paying down our debt in a responsible, balanced way.
The video clip is below, but I have a question. How can you reduce the deficit by $4 trillion when the deficit is a yearly figure that has been averaging about $1.25 trillion for the past four years? Is she suggesting the president has a budget/plan on the table that would take the deficit down from $1.25 trillion to a surplus of $2.75 trillion?
Cutter has no idea what she is talking about. The plans Obama have put forward to Congress would have exploded the deficit and the debt, and have been completely dismissed by both Republicans and Democrats. How the hell can she say $2 trillion in deficit reduction has already been enacted into law. Where are the savings? Where is the surplus?
She’s speaking to the lefties on MSNBC and she knows that she can get away with a statement like that. Throwing around a big number in the trillions and stating Obama has done half of what needs to be done. Just give him four more years, and he’ll “reduce the deficit by another $2 trillion!” Just another sound bite talking point for lefties. I can’t wait for someone to bring that one to me, I’d crush ’em intellectually on that statement.
Sit back and drink the Kool Aid…
