US Debt Problem Solved – Big Numbers to be Re-named

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

In a rare display of unity today, both Republicans and Democrats have agreed on a radical way to bring down the national dept without raising taxes or making spending cuts.
“The answer was so simple – I can’t believe we didn’t think of it before!” stated House Speaker Mitch McConnell.
The proposed solution involves re-naming very large numbers. A trillion will now be called a billion, and a billion will now be called a million. It was felt that a thousand and lower should remain untouched, but it does leave a gap between a thousand and what was formerly called a million.
By re-naming these large numbers the budget dept problem is solved. Instantly the 1.3 trillion dollar national dept becomes a 1.3 billion dollar dept. Heck, that’s lunch money for Warren Buffet!
Republicans are quite enthusiastic about this since tax rates based on those formerly named large numbers will be revalued, so that people making several billion dollars will now only be said to make several million dollars.
The only people who seem to be down on the idea are Executives from Google whose name Google, derives from a one with a hundred zeros. Under the new nomenclature, Google will have to be renamed to One-with-a-hundred zeros.

First act of New Tea Party Congress - Delcare Obama and Biden Legally Dead

Satricial News Service
Washington DC

In their first act as the "Tea Party Congress", the House today passed a resolution declaring Presdient Obama and VP Biden "Legally dead". This clears the way for John Boehner, now the speaker of the House to assume the duties of President. According to one "Tea Party" congress person, "While we cannot produce a Birth Certificate for Obama, we can now definitely produce a Death Certificate." Although a state funeral date has not been announced, the New Speaker of the House will be sworn in on Friday as the new acting President. Since the sitting Presdient is "legally dead", he cannot veto this bill. Next on the agenda is the repeal of Obamacare, Medicare, and the Bill of Rights.
