They, the left, like to avoid the term "spending". There new propoganda is to say we are "investing" in America. Of course their own CBO (congressional budget office) has reported it would be easy to lop off over a trillion dollars in wasted spending, duplications, etc. yet BO says it would be a disaster to make the mandatory $22 Billion dollars this year in cuts. Now we still will spend an increase, a spending budget of $ 3.5 trillion dollars this year. Can a math deficit lib tell us what percentage cutting $ 22 Billion dollars from a $ 3.5 trillion dollar budget would be? Give us the percentage in cuts Obama says we can't make.
