Fuzzy Math at the “paper of record”
There seems to be a problem with the maths in washingtOOn. This from the new york times:
3 Candidates With 3 Financial Plans, but One Deficit
The Republican and Democratic presidential candidates differ strikingly in their approaches to taxes and spending, but their fiscal plans have at least one thing in common: each could significantly swell the budget deficit and increase the national debt by trillions of dollars, according to tax and budget experts.
The reasons reflect the ideological leanings of the candidates, with Senator John McCain proposing tax cuts that go beyond President Bush’s and the Democrats advocating programs costing hundreds of billions of dollars. But for fiscal experts concerned with the deficit, both approaches are worrisome.
With the national debt soaring to $9.1 trillion from $5.6 trillion at the start of 2001, in part because of the Iraq war and Mr. Bush’s tax cuts, a crucial question about the candidates to succeed him is “whether they are helping to fill the hole or make it deeper,” said Robert L. Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan organization that advocates deficit reduction. “With the proposals they have on the table, it looks to me like all three would make it deeper.”
First, the MAIN REASON there is a huge national debt is the military budget. None of the three stooges of the apocalypse will do ANYTHING to stop that pork barrel from continuing to feed the pig rich corpoRATeers. The two parties of the apocalypse intend to let a federal budget that spends over half of its resources on killing people and blowing things up carry on, business as usual. So long as their butt buddies at the arms companies make big bucks on this, nothing will ever change.
Second, it should all come as no surprise that the intent of the stooges is the same old disaster:
All three stooges have had ample opportunity to cut up the bush crime family credit cards. They have passed out of control budget, after out of control budget. If YOU vote in any one of the three stooges, you can expect the same failure of government that we suffer from now. The only difference will be the idiot in the oval office. SONOFABUSH! Speaking of idiots, lets see what the stooges have to say about all this:
THROW THE PORK BARREL POT PIE IN THE STOOGES FACES!
WTF!? When are YOU gonna wise up? When are WE gonna make the big move. When are WE gonna turn the tide and make our government WORK FOR US INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY AROUND? I’LL TELL YOU WHEN:
The Telepathic Crickets on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I would like to remind the mindless apologists for the two parties of that apocalypse at the times that there are MORE THEN THREE persons running for president this election. The times has a problem with the maths too…
