    Bush tries to Outsource the Deficit

    Washington, DC -- The White House announced today that President Bush will be sending legislation to Congress to outsource the deficit.

    "Outsourcing is the solution to all of America's problems," said President Bush. "If it worked for Andersen and McKinsey, it works for me."

    Bush's announcement is a dramatic extension of the Administration's growing support for offshore outsourcing, an increasing trend that has moved hundreds of thousands of jobs in manufacturing and service sectors from the U.S. to lower wage countries.


    • In December, the Commerce Department hosted workshops at the 2003 Economic and Trade Conference to train American companies in outsourcing and to specifically encourage the exportation of jobs to China.
    • In February, the President's Chief Economic Advisor said the "movement of U.S. factory jobs and white-collar work to other countries [is a] positive transformation."
    • On an official trip to India in March, Secretary of State Colin Powell promised that the Administration would continue to support the outsourcing of American jobs.
    President Bush also indicated that outsourcing the deficit could help support multilateral cooperation in the war on terror. "And make sure that other countries pick up the tab for the war on terror -- that's multilateral cooperation for ya'!"

    President Bush's new plan flies in the face of Democrats' criticisms that providing economic incentives for companies to outsource risks America's prospects for economic recovery.

    John Kerry, the Democratic candidate for president, responded strongly to Bush's proposal: "Five years, not four, at Andover, and then Yale and Harvard and he still can't balance the budget? Pigs will have wings before this plan passes the Congress. Come November, let's outsource George W. Bush instead."

    Say, Llad, you been reading Doonesbury lately (I bet you have)? Absolutely hilarious take on the deficit over the last few days. Damn Trudeau. Oh, snap! He has a French name. It all comes together now. :lol:

    You guys ought to listen to Sean Hannity's show today. He's switched sides today and it's funny listening to the callers. None of the callers have a clue as to what is going on. :lol:

    Hannity.com and you can listen online.

    I think you meant Mckinney instead of Mckinsey.
