Obamanomics

I've been listening to Obama tell us at every opportunity how much money all his policies will save the American taxpayer. It reminded of me of an old story.

A man was telling his friend about gas saving measures he was using with his car. "I had the engine tuned up and I'm saving 35%. I checked the air in my tires and added another 10%. I got 25% improvement by never exceeding 55 mph." His friend was impressed. "But that's not all.", he continued. "I shut off the engine at drive-up windows and gained 20%. And not using the air conditioning gives me another 15%."
"That's outstanding!",exclaimed his friend. "You must be really happy!" "It's a real pain in the butt!", said the man. "I have to stop every 20 miles and drain the excess gas out of the tank!"
