Facts are awesome things. For all the screeching from the Boehner Brigade and Marching McConnells, we do not have an enormous increase in spending. Obama is, in fact, the biggest tightwad Prexy since Eisenhower.

Click the link and read the article. Here’s one little quote:

A Congressional Budget Office study released today forecasts that the annual U.S. budget gap — the difference between what the government collects in revenue every year and what it spends — will fall this year to $642 billion. That’s $200 billion less than the non-partisan forecasting arm of Congress was predicting only three months ago and down sharply from the deficit levels that swelled as the economy contracted following the housing crash.

The aforementioned article came out in May, but the Teapublicans are STILL pretending they don’t know it. This is because they don’t give a monkey’s about the truth: all they are interested in is raking in the dough from those who bribe them. And if lying about the country’s finances gets their wallets stuffed, “Republicans” will lie the sun our of the sky.

Remember the shrinking deficit as the Teapublicans scream about the “urgent” need for deep cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and other vital programs. There is no urgent need to cut such costs. None. Zip. Nada. Ixnay.
