Dear Mister President,
(and Mister Reede and Miz Pool O'See and Mister Oral Snatch and Mister Math's Son)
Has it occurred to you that the economic boom-boom of the last decade is a result of Magic Money*? Has it occurred to you that maybe this Magic Money Boom-Boom has unjustly overinflated our standard of living? Has it occurred to you that maybe the American people need to scale it back a little? "Sacrifice,"** if you will?
Or do you intend to perpetuate this economic crisis by dumping more Magic Money into our economy?
* Magic Money is money spent that doesn't actually exist. Examples include: a loan that you are unable to pay back, a loan to pay off another loan, a credit card with an abusively large limit and the billions you intend to spend without "raising taxes." Rrrrrrriiiiight.
** “Everyone in this chamber — Democrats and Republicans — will have to sacrifice some worthy priorities for which there are no dollars,” Obama said. “And that includes me.”
