Stossel strikes again

This time, to ridicule the notion that the President's budget "cuts" anything:

“What if I came to you and said, ‘I’ve been on a diet for the last month, and I’ve gained 10 pounds. Isn't that great?’ You would say: ‘Wait, what are you talking about? That’s insane.’ And I said: ‘I was going to gain 15 pounds. I’ve only gained 10 pounds, therefore my diet is successful.’"

Here is what the Post calls "draconian cuts": instead of increasing spending by $9.48 trillion, they’d increase it by “just” $7.3 trillion.

We have to get used to a lower standard of living. Or else...
