Investing/Spending.... What is the definition of "IS" and what is the definition of "Investing".
You don't like a certain word change it.
Focus groups cringe when they hear the word "SPEND" now so instead we now have "INVEST".
Obama wants to "Invest" a lot. A Whole lot. The SOTU address last night sounded like November never happened. A little less confrontational.
A little less vitriolic. A little less blaming someone else but essentially nothing changed except the definition of a word.
We are going to spend..errr...uhhh...Invest in our future. Yeah right.
FACT CHECK: Obama and his imbalanced ledger:
"WASHINGTON – The ledger did not appear to be adding up Tuesday night when President Barack Obama urged more spending on one hand and a spending freeze on the other.
Obama spoke ambitiously of putting money into roads, research, education, efficient cars, high-speed rail and other initiatives in his State of the Union speech. He pointed to the transportation and construction projects of the last two years and proposed "we redouble these efforts." He coupled this with a call to "freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years."
But Obama offered far more examples of where he would spend than where he would cut, and some of the areas he identified for savings are not certain to yield much if anything.
For example, he said he wants to eliminate "billions in taxpayer dollars we currently give to oil companies." Yet he made a similar proposal last year that went nowhere. He sought $36.5 billion in tax increases on oil and gas companies over the next decade, but Congress largely ignored the request, even though Democrats were then in charge of both houses of Congress."
