The saying goes “The devil is in the details” and ” Figures don’t lie but liars figure”. The Gang of six should be called The Gang of Detail less Liars. But then again they are all graduates of the Fuzzy School of Economic Mathematica.
“The Gang’s proposal purports to offer “a net tax relief of approximately $1.5 trillion.” Yet, the purveyors of the plan claim that it would concurrently raise revenues by $1 trillion.” According to Senator Rand Paul at: http://video.foxnews.com/v/1068064948001/will-conservatives-back-gang-of-six-plan/,who has been home schooled, says wait a minute you purveyors of Fuzzy School of Economic Mathematica, you forgot to include the Geometrica theory of Truth in your Fuzzy Math Calculations.
It appears that they are talking about “…cuts against a baseline. the Baseline is going up $9T over the next 10 years. If they cut $3T they are still going to add $6T to our DEBT over the next 10years.”
And where will the “Revenue” come from? It is being reported that the “Gang” is considering “Revising” mortgage interest deductions, property tax deductions, and you will now pay capital gains on your primary home sale. They are also considering “Revising” State Tax and Charitable Deductions.
H’mmmm, I wonder if “Revising” means virtually eliminating? I believe that’s what is being taught at the Obamaonimics School of Redistribution of Wealth. Go here to read how you can apply for a position in this prestigious Graduate School:
