...for just one thing alone.

Here's an article (from “Business Insider”) about how one provision alone in President Obama's budget proposal contains a nice, sweet “screw you” to Mittch-A-Sketch Romney and his co-conspirators:

While there are many things to loathe and few things to love in the President's budget proposal (although nowhere near as many things to loathe nor as few things to love as in the Republicans' proposals...which is about the best you can say about the President's doesn't suck as much as the Republicans')...this one thing almost makes the entire thing...delicious.

The President's plan apparently includes a provision to no longer allow the filthy rich, such as Mittch-A-Sketch Romney to deliberately and with malice aforethought misuse loopholes to get out of paying taxes by putting more money into IRA's than average, everyday Americans are allowed to put in.

So...just as the Republicans have, basically, been flipping the bird at President Obama
(and the American people) ever since he was first elected, it is somewhat heartening to see the President throw his own, subtle, flip of the bird right back at vile, hypocritical filth politicians like Mittch-A-Sketch Romney and his Republican co-conspirators.

This one little... “and here's to you, Mitt Romney” almost makes the rest of the President's budget...palatable.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
