Hailing Obama’s budget address this week as “a victory for math” Rachel Maddow proclaimed that Obama had brought needed arguments to the table that were “sorely lacking.” Maybe she meant clarity of language like this, which would have George Orwell scratching his head: PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA “… It calls for tax reform to cut about $1 trillion dollars in tax expenditures—spending in the tax code.” Guess what that means.
