Well, isn't this rich coming from the guy who deliberately massively worsened an already bad situation?
But he said once the recession ends, "we're going to have to close that gap between the amount of money coming in and the amount of money going out."
I suspect that this points to his hidden agenda.
I suspect that, as promised, and little-reported, his agenda of shrinking the U.S. Forces, making them less capable of successfully facing and neutralizing the big, growing, gathering, grave international threats to America will be a huge part of this move to balance the budget.
He'll cut things that Leftists hate, not things that Leftists love. He's already entrenched billions of bucks in new, unnecessary Far-Left spending programs which he'll balance by cutting necessary things like national defence, which is what America's enemies want to see happen.
He's going to slash healthcare spending to balance the budget, too. Just like the Liberals did in Canada in the Nineties. And we know the healthcare problems it accelerated, which haven't been reversed by the reinfusion of billions back into the system!
Cutting bucks out of healthcare only increases the problem of rationing and waiting.
I suspect he doesn't have a clue what he's doing, what he's saying, what's going to happen.
He's just reading crap off the gosh-darned teleprompter.
The only folks who know what's in the offing are the folks behind the curtain telling him what to say, oh, so elegantly. Yep, he turns their verbal diarrhea into verbal gold. He's a salesman.
