This is one of the oldest political tricks in the book.


City councils use it all the time to trick the sheep into paying more taxes/fees, or, whatever they wanna call stealing more money from your wallet this week.
Then they threaten to cut the job's of cops, firefighters, teachers, or, other good people, unless they can find more money somewhere.
Oh dear! Where, oh, where are we going to find the money for this?!

The end result is always the same. YOU, the citizen, must pay more taxes.

This is a variation on the same theme.

I really freakin' hate that crap.

jusr a few days ago Øbama avowed 'There is NO spending problem'..

now, whats with the demonizing of the Rebublicans for insisting the chief executive cut his spending on his pet projects which layers largesse (EBT CARDS, SECTION 8, Øbama-Phones...ETC) on the voters & immigrants who follow the Øbama plan of 'Forward'

the Debt ceiling issue is the one thing that responsible anti-administration leaders can leverage to help arrest the runaway money & services given away to the Lotus Eater segment of the Øbama-Cult
