Meanwhile, Obama blew through $8 TRILLION like it was nothing. And is demanding more.
In the military one of the pervasive buzz phrases is “to save money”... that something will be eliminated in order to [ostensibly] cut waste/abuse. Of course the purpose of the phrase is to plant the false notion that the government is trying to be wise and responsible in how it spends the taxpayers’ money.
The accurate translation is really “we are wasting just as much if not more than before, but we need to pump more money into boondoggles like diversity and green projects.” Or simply, that the current crop of bureaucrats needs to justify their jobs by rearranging the deck chairs, to be moved back again when that scheme doesn’t work, and then back and forth until eternity (or an iceberg).
When the government claims to “save money” is it always heralded as a good thing, but when a corporation attempts to cut costs/save money it is demonized by the government as the epitome of evil and greed for making the little guy suffer.
I expect this this tactic to be used heavily as Obamacare cuts access to care and the quality of doctors and services necessarily plummets. We will be be told how virtuous our government is for “saving money”, while the “little guys” are dropping like flies. Meanwhile that evil Wal-Mart is killing people by having them work holidays...
