Supersize Big Mac Meal, with a Diet Coke

The administration's new budget projects that this year's deficit will soar to an all-time high of $423 billion, surpassing the old mark in dollar terms of $412 billion set in 2004...
But finally, George W. Bush is getting serious about cutting the federal budget. His proposal: cutting $63 billion over the next five years:
$36 billion in Medicare, $5 billion in farm subsidy programs, $4.9 billion in Medicaid support for poor children's health care and $16.7 billion in additional payments from companies to shore up the government's besieged pension benefit agency.
He also proposes extending his tax cuts, which will cost $1.4 trillion over the next decade.

"I'll have a diet coke---oh, and also a supersize Big Mac meal, while you're at it."

Heard about a hot-wing eating contest once where a big burly contestant stopped for a moment to put Sweet'n Low in his tea. Like that helps after 88 wings!

By their actions shall we judge them -- talk isn't just cheap, it's worthless. Tax cuts for the rich, healthcare cuts for the poor. That says it all for me!

Nah, he isn't asking for the diet coke. He's saying, "I'll have the Big Mac meal, supersized, with a coke and a milkshake and a pie for my friends. And while you're at it, you see that black kid sitting at the table in the corner, eating the small salad while he's reading? Let's toss his salad in the trash."
