Healthy Budgets Initiative
Having met with great success with his Iraq war strategy, in which progress is clearly demonstrated by escalating violence, President Bush unveiled a similar approach to the federal budget. Dubbed the "Healthy Budgets Initiative", the plan redefines the entire idea of national fiscal health. "The more money we owe foreign investors, the better off our nation will be," Mr. Bush announced at his Crawford ranch today.
Pointing to a chart (shown left), the President observed that despite the harm done by fiscal responsibility during the Clinton years, his Administration has been working feverishly to achieve the goal of complete insolvency by 2006. Admitting he misspoke in his State of the Union address, Mr. Bush indicated that he would in fact pass on a huge debt to future generations "for the good of the country". "The more successful we are at running up huge deficits, the more desperate our political opponents become," he said. "When we completely run out of money, we will be able to declare victory in this struggle. I will not falter, I will not tire, I will not fail to cut taxes and spend money we do not have."
[Update: changed the title from "Deficits" to "Budgets". I spaced and put the wrong word in there.]
