Ask Not What The Rich Can Do For Our Country

Oscar: Obama has a thing called the Catfood Commission.

MacIntosh: That is Obama’s Deficit Reduction Commission.

Oscar: Whys do they call it the Catfood Commission?

MacIntosh: Because if we follow their advice a lot of people will be eating catfood.

Oscar: What does they wants us to do?

MacIntosh: They want to reduce Social Security benefits by making people work until 70.

Oscar: But that could make old people work hard jobs and the hardest workers could die without ever getting benefits.

MacIntosh: Yep. They want to eliminate or reduce the deduction people get for the interest on their mortgage payments.

Oscar: So people that are barely making it now will lose their houses and every one with a house will have it drop in value.

MacIntosh: Yep. They want our veterans to pay more for their medical benefits.

Oscar: Because the value of their service has gone down.

MacIntosh: They want to eliminate the deduction employers get for paying for health insurance.

Oscar: But that would mean employers might drop or reduce health coverage.

MacIntosh: Yep. Catfood.

Oscar: Whys do they want to do those things.

MacIntosh: They say we must so we can afford to cut the maximum tax rate from 35% to 23%. That’s a reduction in taxes for our wealthiest citizens of more than a third.

Oscar: Yippee. They can buy more luxury yachts and Paris Hilton can make more porno tapes for the internet.

MacIntosh: Yep. If we do what they say we can reduce the deficit over time by $ 4 trillion.

Oscar: That’s a lot of money.

MacIntosh: We can increase our revenues by $ 4 trillion by eliminating the Bush tax cuts.

Oscar: It’s the same amount of money. And if we do that peoples can eat peoples food instead of cats food.

MacIntosh: Yep.

Oscar: What does they call this plan?

MacIntosh: I think they should name it after President Kennedy’s famous speech.

Oscar: Where he says we shouldn’t ask what the country can do for us?

MacIntosh: Yep. They should call it “Ask Not What The Rich Can Do For Our Country, But What We Can Do For Our Rich.”
