And let’s make sure what we’re cutting is really excess weight. Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may feel like you’re flying high at first, but it won’t take long before you’ll feel the impact.

We can't spend more than we take in...

 

Five year freeze on domestic spending. Doesn't want to cut education. Says he wants to cut Medicare and Medicaid but doesn't want to repeal health care law.

I'm having a hard time coming up with snark at this point.

 

I keep looking at Boehner and thinking he has shot glasses lined up. What is that silver tray thingy?

Wants to get rid of the Bush tax cuts, of course. Millionaires should give up their tax breaks but says it's not about punishing them. Riiiiight. Simplify the tax code.

It looks like glasses of water. Wonder if he'll excuse himself for a potty break.
