In the news recently, there's a lot of talk about President Obama's brand new budget plan, which is somewhere in the trillions. Critics have said that is, quote, "kind of a lot of money", and they have suggested various plans to help the country's budget, such as not giving anybody health care or social security.
It's moments like these when you know are lawmakers are really looking out for the welfare of their citizens.
President Obama has promised to veto the proposed budget cuts, because saving money is clearly a bad idea. After all, it could hurt the economic growth of the country. I'm not exactly sure which country he's talking about, because he certainly can't mean the United States of America. The last time I checked, we're still in a recession.
Speaking of which, Borders Bookstores has just declared bankruptcy. Not only are all of their employees out of work, but I imagine that a lot of people will be fired from the publishing industry, too. After all, Borders probably controlled 30% to 40% of all bookstore sales in the country.
In any case, it's starting to look like the budget cuts aren't going to be accepted, so our country is going to go further into debt. Oh well.
