FLASHBACK FEB 2009: Obama pledges to cut nation’s deficit in half

by on February 13, 2012

The man’s a pathological liar. In 2009, he had no intent of halving deficits. His web of lies maintained the key to cutting costs was Obamacare. Well, we’ve got that bucket of crap and 2012’s budget submit is a $1.6 Billion deficit even after a recommended $ Billion tax increase.

(2009 CNN post)

“Obama intends to cut the federal deficit in half primarily by spending less on the war in Iraq, raising taxes on those who make more than $250,000 a year and streamlining government, an administration official told CNN Saturday.

“The president’s budget proposal will project that the estimated $1.3 trillion deficit inherited from the Bush administration will be halved to $533 billion by 2013, or from 9.2% of the gross domestic product to 3%, the official said.”

  1. Has anyone tgohhut when these bike stations are put infront of buildings (residential) that it decreases the property value?My next door neighbour couldnt sell cause now we got this station infront of us at new farm, why? cause people likes to sit on them just ring the bell all the time.Lets face it, I live at new farm, if I want to ride bike, I have my own anyway (I have 3), residnets will not hire them. Also why the hell are there sooooooooo many bike stations (example new farm). Some of them are not even attractions, destinations or where people would likely go. STOP WASTING MY COUNCIL RATE N STUPID IDEAS!Not to mention the helmet law. I can only see the only way this works is to drop the helmet law and input in more bike infrastructures, ie linking all these stations with dedicated bike paths. I understand the helmet law is to save lifes, so either people take care of their own life or this scheme becomes a failure, your call. Personally, I rather have my helmet on.Another reason not sure if anyone considered, our climate!! wait til summer, see if anyone is goign to ride them bikes under 34 degrees heat.While Im at it, BRING TRAMS BACK TO BRISBANE AND STOP DIGGING USELESS TUNNELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
