How does Obama propose to handle our Big Fat Greek-Style Debt? Feed it, of course!
My solution involves stink bombs. Please read all the way to the end.
Conservatives on Fire, a most excellent blog, recently posted about Obama's sneaky plan for automatic tax increases. He disguises the plan as a "Debt Fail Safe Trigger."
Called a “debt failsafe trigger,” Obama’s scheme would automatically raise taxes if politicians spend too much.Here's how the White House pitches it. Note the Plouffian Newspeak...
A Debt Failsafe that will trigger across-the-board spending reductions (both in direct spending and spending through the tax code) (Whitehouse.gov)Only a confiscatory progressive could come up with something that clever... Calling a tax increase a "Spending reduction through the tax code."
Notice how with liberals it's never that we're spending too much? For progressive statists, the answer is always that we're not stuffing enough taxpayer money into the insatiable maw of the soulless government beast.
Here's my idea for a "Debt Fail Safe Trigger."
The US Capitol will be rigged with noxious stinkbombs that automatically drop from the ceilings when the debt goes over the limit. The antidote could be quickly triggered by pushing a button that automatically slashed government programs across the board to get us back under the limit.
