told the press today that "tax cuts are spending".
“Our whole budget is what, $3.5 trillion? So when we talk about reducing spending, we certainly must, and we certainly have — $1.6 trillion in the previous Congress, $1.2 of it in the Budget Control Act. But spending is also related to tax cuts. Tax cuts are spending. Tax expenditures, they are called. Subsidies for big oil, subsidies to send jobs overseas, breaks to send jobs overseas, breaks for corporate jets. They are called tax expenditures. Spending money on tax breaks. And that’s the spending that we must curtail as well.”
I won't speak for anyone else, but this writer is damn tired of intellectual dwarfs like Pelosi having the gall to assume that she can make such an asinine statement as this, and fully expect the American public to accept it. Maybe her brain-dead constituents in the Bay Area are this comatose, but thinking Americans are insulted by her hubris.
Perhaps she is emboldened by the constant stream of lies flowing out of the White House on a daily basis on everything from the sequester, the state of the economy, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, or any number of other problems facing the country.
What I do know is that Nancy Pelosi couldn't find her ass with a funnel if her life depended on it. Her statement is revealing, in that it shows the true mind of the statist, who believes that ALL money and wealth belongs to the government, first and foremost. To them you didn't build it, earn it, or create it, and you certainly couldn't do it without them. For that reason, it is up to her, and others like her, to determine how much of what you earned you deserve to keep.
So, we have the new Orwellian definition of spending, which will now be the phrase we are going to hear from every Democrat, and its sycophants in the media, on all of the morning and weekend talk shows for the next two weeks, attempting to create a new reality in the weak-minded sheep around the country.
What an imbecile!
