Posted on 05/10/2012 3:38:00 AM PDT by Kaslin
If things werent bad enough for Obama- high unemployment, the collapse of Europe, losing delegate votes to a federal inmate, the Chicago Bulls being eliminated from the playoffs- which, of course, screwed up the presidents NBA bracket- now comes even more bad news: The government actually brought in more money than it spent in April.
Obama better take a 14-day vacation real soon; or lower the debt ceiling; or something.
We are about to have an outbreak of fiscal responsibility. How did this happen?
Whats the use of sending up joke-shop, gag budgets to Congress, which cant even garner one vote from any party, anywhere, if the result is a runaway budget surplus?
Thats right; with $58 billion in extra cash, the government recorded its first monthly surplus in revenues since George Bush was president in 2008.
Quick. Pass a budget, before we have a surplus again.
The federal government broke its record deficit streak in April, noted the Washington Times, notching its first monthly surplus since the end of the Bush administration, according to preliminary estimates released Monday.
And of course, this is all Bush fault.
And those do-nothing Republicans.
"Every member of the House is up for election this year and a third of the Senate, and each of those members who are running for re-election has to explain to his or her constituents what they did while they were in Washington these last two years. Did they just say no," to more spending? White House automaton Jay Carney said according to the Huffington Post before the reporters ran out of quarters to feed into the White House machine.
I agree with Carney.
If they just said no, rather than hell, no, well, they ought to be ashamed.
But dont worry, HuffPo readers.
Obama has a shopping list; that surplus wont last long.
Hes got a plan to spend that $58 billion, plus whatever other money he can pry out of taxpayers, taxpayers children and taxpayers grandchildren and their childrens children.
For sayeth Obama, the great Law Giver, Provider of Healthcare and Constitutional Tax Lawyer: Let the spending of the fathers be visited upon the children to the third our fourth generation. Note: See box 5 of the instruction sheet that comes with IRS Form 433-B revision 0108. Failure to follow complete instructions may result in the delay of account resolution to future generations.
In addition, I think Democrats are working on a way of taxing any species that in the future will evolve from Homo Sapien Americanus through a registry of DNA samples.
Apparently Geithner is also examining a zero-coupon, 20-million-year Treasury bond, complete with a treasure map showing the Treasurys last known location in order to help archeologists cash in.
The new Treasuries will be denominated in Euro-based carbon credits that are weighted to the Chinese Yuan through the U.S. Import-Export Bank under a program that was designed by the International Monetary Fund authorized by the United Nations Global Arctic Famine Fund.
So you just know its gotta be a good idea.
You run any idea through that many people who are experts at everything- and by the way, each and everyone is a LOT smarter than Sarah Palin- and we could be seeing deficits on those bonds for 100 million, 200 million years, maybe even longer.
Im assuming that Obamas assuming that hell still be president of Chinas Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere by then.
And with the new Democrat-controlled genetic sequencing to do all the central planning- nothing like picking winners and losers before life even begins- what could go wrong?
I was wondering when this would come up. I know the local liberals are already running with the Obama “surplus” mantra.
Guess there’s no reason to raise taxes on anybody. LOL
The Bulls aren’t out of the playoffs yet...
lol....You’re making 2k a month and borrowing 2k a month.
One month, you only spend 3k.
OMG...YOU HAVE A SURPLUS!!!!!
Typical leftwing lunatic math
If the government actually brought in more money than it spent in April, why was the National Debt higher at the end of April than it was at the beginning?
Like everything else that comes out of this regime, it's a lie.
Lies, damned lies, statistics, and Øbama pronouncements.
58 billion in extra cash.
But with 15 trillion in debt and climbing.
April????? Hmmmmmm April.......hmmm April 15th hmmmm
