President Romney Fulfills Campaign Promise
By Axing Large Yellow Fowl - Eliminates Millions from
$2 Trillion Deficit
At the time most voters felt that when Mr. Romney said ‘axe’ he was talking figuratively, but Mr. Romney said no, he meant what he said. “All of the woes of the Federal deficit have been caused by federal subsidies of PBS, which amount to almost $325 million dollars out of a budget of $3.5 trillion” said the President, “and so it was obvious that reduce our current deficit, now grown to $2.1 trillion a year because of tax cuts that Big Bird had to go”.
Reporters tried to ask the President how cutting a small fraction of one percent of federal spending would fix the deficit, but the President just said people that ask those kinds of questions are obviously just the liberal loving main stream media, and that anyone who understood business as he did would know that this was the best way to balance the budget.
When asked about the deficit, which has doubled since Mr. Romney took office he said that this is what he inherited from President Obama and that “If Mr. Obama had balanced the budget then my additional $1 trillion in deficit creation would only have brought the nation to the level that George W. Bush had when he left office. Clearly the problem is all Mr. Obama’s”, the President said.
