All it takes is a litte "1984"-style newspeak and abracadabara, Obama has changed enormous growth of the welfare state into "tax cuts". It's genius - diabolical genius.
Having as many citizens as possible dependent on the government is important, both to move the country further into socialism and to insure they maintain political power. This will be reinforced by political indoctrination through Obama's "educational reform" and limiting of opposition via the "hideously misnamed" Fairness Doctrine. The financial crisis will provide an excuse for nationalization. With control all three branches of governement, this will proceed essentially unchecked.
When Obama says "Change" he damned well means it.
