You heard/read about it in the news — as sound bites.
I’m referring to that deficit-reduction report issued by the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform.
But do you know what the report actually says?
Over the weekend, I had e-mailed the report to fellow Anonymous and got this response from him:
“Uh-oh. Read it (sobering on the face of it, just by itself). With the track record of the current administration, I don’t know whether they’ll:
- Just say this and do the opposite; or
- Use an “interpretation” of this to eliminate defense spending, cut Medicare, etc. to the point where painkillers, euthanasia and abortions-on-demand will be all that “healthcare reform” will eventually allow, and jack-up entitlement spending for loyal Democratic voters.”
