Washington Doesn't Speak English...
I thought “spending cuts” means that we'd spend less money in the future than we do today. Oh, silly me. It turns out that Washington uses a different definition. To them, “spending cuts” means a smaller increase than would otherwise be planned. Even with the “spending cuts”, the Boehner plan would spend more each year than in the year before. Some “cut”!
Can you imagine anywhere other than the loony bin that is Washington where one could get away with this sort of blatant misuse of common English? In any business environment, you'd be out on your butt before you could blink.
Some assembly required...
