Harry & Nancy (Debt Busters)

"The American people need to understand that it's not as if we've done nothing for the debt.  $2.6 trillion - $2.6 trillion already we've made in cuts." - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D - Searchlight)

"The fact is, we've had plenty of spending cuts..[I]t is almost a false argument to say that we have a spending problem." - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D - Marin County)

These two, and the rest of their Congressional peers, must really think the American people are stupid.  There haven't been any 'cuts' in spending...There have been reductions in proposed spending but no cuts.

Here's how these morons work their 'magic':  Lets say the government was going to spend $10 over the next ten years; now the government is going to spend $8 over the next ten years...They are still going to be spending $8 we don't have - $8 we won't have no matter how much they tax the rich, either.

It would be like me saying I planned on going to the store and spending $100, but only spent $80, and then claiming I 'cut my spending by $20'...No, I wouldn't have cut my spending.  I would have still spent $80.

Normal people understand this.  Politicians understand it as well, but they also understand normal people don't understand politico-speak - nor the fake accounting they are allowed to use.  Fake accounting regular people would go to jail for if they did.

Here's the proof about Harry and Nancy's claims:  Click this link and look at the National Debt.  Is it going down, or is it going up?  In order for Harry and Nancy to have any claim to the truth it would have to be going down...It isn't going down at all.  In fact, it is racing "to infinity and beyond!" - Buzz Lightyear
