Flip Flop

Look, this is gibberish. Even if the idiots come up with some "creative dynamic scoring" plan for SS borrowing, one cannot simultaneously cut the deficit in half and not cut it in half any more than one can have tea and no tea.

White House budget director Joshua Bolten said the cost of implementing Bush's plans would not undercut Bush's goal of cutting the deficit in half over the next five years.

Yet, he said, such costs ``may well'' add to short-term annual deficits. ``I don't want to prejudge how they might be accounted for,'' Bolten said.
