$40 Billion to Clarify Accounting Gimmicks

(Just a quick note)

In yesterday’s coverage of budget fights, I heard claims by Congressional Democrats that by not passing a budget last year they saved $40 billion. How is that, you ask? After all, doesn’t a “continuing resolution” simply hold spending at the same rate? Well, the claim was that spending was slated to grow by an extra $40 billion, so by not passing the new, $40 billion larger budget, they had saved the $40 billion. There it is folks. That is congressional math. It really is that simple.

“We planned on destroying the world, but then we passed a bill to hold back and not destroy the world, therefore, we saved the world” – yes, yes you did.
