Lying about the budget? You betcha exposes the truth
President Obama's team is lying about the "budget cuts" in Obama's 1,500-page, $3.5 trillion budget.
They are not cutting the budget. In fact, Obama's budget is over $400 billion larger than President Bush's 2009 budget and $100 billion larger than the bloated budget resolution Congress just passed!
The fact is, the budget Obama released this week is basically the same budget his team released two months ago in "outline" form...
--This is the largest budget ever proposed by a President with the largest deficits in American history.
--It adds over $9 trillion to the national debt
-- doubling the total debt accumulated from the start of our country through the Bush presidency.
--It includes the Carbon Tax, which could be as high as $2 trillion.
--It includes the massive socialized health care program.
--It even ignores the $3.4 trillion budget Congress passed and reverts to Obama's original $3.5 trillion budget.
+ + The "budget cut" slight of hand
What about those "budget cuts"? As the Chicago Tribune reported, the "news" of the budget cuts grabbed the headlines even though the supposed "cuts" were all in Obama's original budget!
There is nothing new. No new budget cuts. Obama has simply repackaged his bloated budget -- ignoring Congress' budget resolution -- in terms of supposed budget cuts.
Obama fed this headline to the liberal media and they ran with it. Sadly, Republican leaders are trying to downplay the supposed budget cuts when, in reality, THERE ARE NO CUTS IN THE BUDGET!
