Want to know what they mean inside the Beltway by “spending cuts”?

Paul Ryan explains:


So very brilliant.

I just called a contractor and got an estimate for adding a third story to our house. It was really expensive, which was exactly what I wanted to hear! I told the contractor that we wanted to move ahead with the project. He was so excited! Five minutes later, I called back and cancelled, and then I immediately reported to my wife that this spending cut will allow us to get out of debt completely. I am amazing!

This reminds me of the beginning of a Mad TV skit from years ago . . .

“Do you want your chunk over or under the belt?”

“Hey, look at you—you just lost 100 pounds!”

Fuzzy math is fuzzy math.
