Obama has “Detailed plan to reduce deficit by $4 trillion”

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…

    O_M_G_….they are such liars.? It makes me nauseous to think that anyone could believe their b.s.
    And I’m surrrre that MSNBC had someone there to defend Ryan’s budget plan with real numbers proving that it would actually lead to reducing the deficit.? Right?? Right?? Pinhead administration and pinhead media lapdogs.? I don’t know if I’ll survive this for another 4+ months.

    Over how many years??? Where has Zero been hiding this big plan??? Lemme guess: he can’t tell us what it is unless he is reelected, a la Pelosi’s “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it”?
    $4 trillion in “savings” when he is racking up a $16 trillion dollar national debt??
    We’re saved!? We’re saved!!?? /sarc

    I found this quote on Powerline and it seemed apropos here. ??

    If anyone can reduce this deficit caused by George Bush and war criminal Dick Cheney, it’s Barack Obama because he’s thuper!

    What a bobble head she is, and looking at this video I mean that literately? and figuratively. Or it just because of the puppet masters strings she moves like that?

    Best comedy skit I have seen in few years.? Laugh out loud funny….oh wait is she actually serious!!!!!

    To paraphrase Henny Youngman; ‘Take my budget …. Please!”? Oh, wait, there isn’t one. Oops. Sorry. Just believe me. Please?

    Every word that comes from him is a lie until proven otherwise… and I thought that the “Affordable *smirk* Care Act” was supposed to reduce the deficit…. well I actually didn’t think so but Barack Ofibber said so… but I suppose that we’re all just supposed to forget that.? Hopefully the SCOTUS does its job and declares the legislation the unconstitutional power grab that it is and the voting public does its job and not only makes B.O. a one-termer but also cleans house in the house and senate.? The mess is already so enormous that it will take a couple generations to recover from.? Four more years of this and the United States as we know it is done for.

    This blonde wig-on-a-stick is a long, long fly-ball to deep, deep, deep, LEFT field . . . and she’s gooooonnnnnneeeeee!
    Mission demolished! Confuse and obfuscate. Get the other side to stop talking about what a bad, partisan president we have. Just say the most outrageous, idiotic, stupid things. No clue. (“Dude, there is a difference between a trillion and a billion? Dollars, right”) No one listens to all of the numbers! Just get the message across that NObama’s gotta plan.
    What plan? Half implemented? LOL

    This is amazing.? For you critics out there who believe that President Obama is not telling the truth, it can be assured that Staples ?? has that special calculator in aisle 12 which will confer these equations.? When realising that Obama is correct you can press [MC] = Memory Recall on the calculator to high light:
    Cocaine x Weed + High School – Classes =Book Deal.
    Just sayin.
