Chairman Zero is asking his cabinet to come up with $100 million in savings. Well, Whoopty-Freakin’ Doo. That’s $65 million less than the bonuses for AIG that were included in the bailout. That’s $4,900,000,000 less than the subsidies for ACORN built into the porkulus. That’s $34,900,000,000 less than the S-Chip expansion. That’s $645,900,000,000 than he wants to spend on a new Health Care Entitlement.
I repeat. Whoopty Freakin’ Doo.
Of course, there is a public service element to this. Henceforth, any leftwing Kool-Aid drinker who spouts off that “Obama cut the Federal Budget” can immediately be spotted as a complete idiot.
Update: A brilliant way to put it:
To put those numbers in perspective, imagine that the head of a household with annual spending of $100,000 called everyone in the family together to deal with a $34,000 budget shortfall. How much would he or she announce that spending had be cut? By $3 over the course of the year–approximately the cost of one latte at Starbucks. The other $33,997? We can put that on the family credit card and worry about it next year.
