“Swemson’s Subtitles” are intended to function as a truth filter offering a translation of what Obama’s words really mean, what he really believes, & what he’s really planning to do for to us and our country. Those who disagree with these translations are encouraged to comment, and offer their own interpretation of what he was really saying.

Obama just said:

“Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don’t. And if I have to enforce this discipline by veto, I will.”

Swemson’s Subtitle:

“Starting NEXT year, we’re going to freeze a small % of government spending at the current ridiculously high levels for three years. Of course none of the important stuff like national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will be affected, (although we’re really going to cut military spending down to the bone). But all of the other stuff, like paying off our supporters, and occasionally throwing a bone to the common folks, which adds up to bupkus anyway, will continue to be funded at the same exorbitant levels they’re at now for the next three years, assuming of course, that we can’t push this spending up even higher by the end of 2010.”
