Governor Palin: The Truth Behind the White House’s Budget Spin

Monday, February 14, 2011

Governor Palin via Facebook:

Today the White House finally produced its proposal for the 2012 budget. Beware of the left’s attempt to sell this as “getting tough on the deficit,” because as an analysis from Americans for Tax Reform shows, the White House’s plans are more about raising taxes and growing more government than reducing budget shortfalls.

The fine print reveals a White House proposal to increase taxes by at least $1.5 trillion over the next decade. If you want to know how minuscule their proposed $775 million-a-year budget “cuts” really are, please look at this chart. The proposed cuts are so insignificant – less than 1/10 of 1% of this year’s $1.65 trillion budget deficit – that they are essentially invisible on the pie chart. That speaks volumes about today’s budget.

- Sarah Palin

UPDATE: As J.D. Foster of the Heritage Foundation points out: “...the President proposes a budget that keeps the federal government on a thoroughly irresponsible and unsustainable course.” Please read the Heritage Foundation article and understand the $775 million in proposed cuts noted above are what the White House’s budget director Jacob Lew identified as reflecting what they perceive as some “tough calls.” Yet, as noted, they are a drop in the bucket; and the White House’s total proposed cuts for this year are still not at all enough to make us solvent.

Wow, and I thought that my paycheck was a joke. It's nothing compared to this so called budget. And like my paycheck, it's not funny. Typical lib budget tax, spend, repeat.

This isn't a's a f**king joke. You can't even make this up it's so bad. Please, all of you good conservatives....get a spine and start to blast the progressives or whatever their new handle is - every day. Don't let up. And while I'm a fan of Governor Palin, I'm a bigger fan of Adrienne Ross. Go for it.
