Vampire Obama

About: double bookkeeping

source: ... Federal debt and retiree commitments equal $561,254 per household. By contrast, an average household owes a combined $116,057 for mortgages, car loans and other debts.

"By law, the federal government can't tell the truth," says accountant Sheila Weinberg of the Chicago-based Institute for Truth in Accounting.

Jim Horney, a former Senate budget staff expert now at the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, says retirement programs should not count as part of the deficit because, unlike a business, Congress can change what it owes by cutting benefits or lifting taxes.

"It's not easy, but it can be done. Retirement programs are not legal obligations," he says.

source: ... On Jan. 28, 2009, a week after Obama’s nomination, the Fed owned $302 billion in U.S. Treasury securities. On April 25, 2012, the latest date reported, the Fed owned five and a half time that much in U.S. Treasury securities--$1.668 trillion.
... Together, the Federal Reserve, China and Japan had increased their holdings of U.S. debt by $2.2445 trillion since Obama took office.

That's like backing one's own credit cards. It is also a good rationale for what Ron Paul wanted - i.e. AUDIT the FED.

(**)Why Obama you might ask? Obama probably doesn't carry a wallet with money in it - most presidents don't. He probably doesn't go out and shop in a grocery store. He speaks & billions of $$ get spent by the government &/or million$ come into his campaign. He doesn't have a budget for the USA nor does he balance it if he had one.  I doubt that he ever worked & contributed real labor to any product which was sold. Being a lawyer or a professor doesn't count as work in my book.
.... so why should money be real to him?

Notice when public equity fails Obama's contributers & union supporters walk away with the public's money - how convenient!

The difference here must be that Obama can say these are MY vampire investors.
