So you are either a liar or willfully ignorant. You should hold up a mirror. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/29/fiscal-cliff-2012_n...The only new spending cuts in the plan would come from administration proposals curbing health care programs by $400 billion over the coming decade and modest cuts from non-health programs like farm subsidies and cutting Postal Service costs and through higher fees on airline tickets. The plan would also boost spending by extending unemployment benefits for the long-term jobless, deferring looming cuts to Medicare payments to physicians and helping homeowners refinance "underwater" mortgages..Wow, sounds like Obama was acting in good faith!Oh, wait:http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/gop-leaders-challenge...As part of a deficit-reduction proposal unveiled two weeks ago, Obama called for trimming the debt by about $4 trillion over the next decade, in part through spending cuts already in force and savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also called for about $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue and about $400 billion in savings from changes to federal health and entitlement programs.So most of his "cuts" are phantom accounting gimmicks.
