Encouraging home ownership via the mortgage interest deduction is now a "tax entitlement", and something Obama and Team Hopenchange - desperate for cash - are looking at dumping.
So we are all on the same page here vis-a-vis Team Hopenchange thinking: When the government lets you keep your own money its an "entitlement" - no different than when government gives away your money to someone who did nothing to earn it. Okie-dokie.
If Team Hopenchange is really "seeking ways to close huge deficits", try this: Quit. Fucking. Spending.
Barry, do you really need a bunch of experts to tell you "which asses to kick" here? Because if y'all do something this stupid, the only asses that are going to get kicked are yours - at the polls.
Is there any part of the American Dream you guys don't want to kill?
