GOP gives $500 trillion tax cut to 120,000 families

I learned today that the GOP gave a $500 trillion tax cut to 120,000 families- an average of $4.2 billion per family!

Clearly the situation is far worse than I thought- I had no idea that we could have had a $484 trillion surplus by now.

That's okay. Chuck Grassley introduced Romney at a rally by saying that it's time for a new president.....Obama.

I agree with Grassley. We can't afford that $500 Gajillion cut.

That's the trouble with these Washington politicians- they don't understand the difference between a trillion and a gajillion.
