Daily Caller has the video, but for today’s lesson all we need is the text of a quick Q&A between a Washington reporter and Jay Carney:

Q: “When you say balanced, you don’t mean balanced …”

White House press secretary Jay Carney: “I mean a balanced approach to deficit reduction that includes asking everyone to pay their share.”

Q: “But it won’t be a balanced budget, right?”

Carney: “No. What the president’s proposal will do, as his previous proposals have done, is achieve the economically important goal of bringing our debt to GDP down below 3 percent.”

Allow me to translate Carney’s answer into English from the original Washingtonese:

No. What the president’s proposal will do, as his previous proposals have done, is achieve the politically necessary goal of indenturing your children to pay off our wealthy political allies.

I hope that clears things up for you.

What the President's proposal will do...is hunt for the person person stupid enough to vote for it. The man who has never signed the front of a check is a budget vote virgin.
