The President's Speech

The president spoke from New Orleans tonight. This is the fourth time he's been there since he belatedly got interested in the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

So, George promised everything to the audience:

  • New Orleans will be rebuilt.

  • Evacuees will be given first dibs on rebuilding jobs.

  • Evacuees in shelters will be offered job training.

  • People moving back to New Orleans will be encouraged to buy homes instead of rent. Low cost mortgages will be provided.

And so on. Everyone will have food, clothes, shelter, medical attention and a job.

This is great stuff. These are the most liberal plans ever to escape from his mouth. But where is the money going to come from? We're talking a price tag of $200 billion. He doesn't dare raise taxes, so what programs will get cut?

EXACTLY what I said! He wants all this, but still cut taxes? Guess who funds it then?

Foreign Investors buying US Treasury Bonds...
