He has ordered the entire cabinet to see where they can collectively cut $100 million. To give you an idea what a paltry sum this is, it is the cost of about one F-22 Raptor or about 2 F-35 JSF. Wow. This guy knows how to save some real money.

I heard him urging agencies to buy supplies in bulk to save money, is that right I can say from a lower level my old legacy company cybertel did that and when the school year began the supplies got "pounded" big time. him and that tele-promter. reminds of the actor john barrymore had to read all his lines off a chalk board ; at least barrymore had an excuse he wrecked his mind with liquor.

I'm amazed he went so far out on a limb and ordered such a huge cut. :eek: That would be like me budgeting $36,000 for the year and changing it to $35,999 instead. (the $100 million is 1/36,000th of the $3.6 trillion budget)

Hope and Change are here at last! :rolleyes:

that $36,000.00 your budget for spending; of course you're only expected to make $20,000.00 in income. But it's effectively tax free tho...

It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad. :mad::mad::mad:

Yep....year after year they spend more than they take in and they have no plans to change that. They're all guilty of treason IMO.

That'll only happen if Obama declares it one since they take their orders from him...

I don't think he comprehends the difference in what he's done to the deficit and this whopping 100 mil cut from the cabinet. It's all a bunch of zeros to him and his crew.

He would be embarrassed to have said it if he actually comprehended it. To hold his first cabinet meeting and ask the entire government to find 100 mil in cuts AND GIVE THEM 90 DAYS TO DO IT!! is the act of a simpleton, seriously. They could cut paper clip orders by 10% and do that. He has no idea of the scale of what he's doing.

In his first 38 days in office, Obama spent $1.368 trillion dollars. That averages $38 billion a day. And he thinks a $100 million is going to make a difference. What an obamature.

Well, yeah, but fat people will be taxed at a higher rate.
