Revenues vs. Expenditures

| | Comments (0)
A lot of people call a decrease in revenues -- such as a tax cut -- an expenditure.

These people are either idiots, or liars.

If a business starts selling less product, it doesn't say that they are spending more money, it says they are bringing in less money. But when the government brings in less money, many liars say they are SPENDING MORE money, not bringing in less.

They are twisting the language to suit their own purposes, completely inventing definitions that did not previously exist. It's like when Bush said Kerry voted 350 times for higher taxes, despite knowing full well that some of those votes were actually for tax cuts. Bush was lying then, and the (mostly liberal) people who talk about tax cuts as expenditures are lying now.
