    Bwahahaha:

    What? "Spending reductions in the tax code"? The tax code isn't where we spend, it's where we collect, and that.... ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I guess what you said is tax "code", code for raising taxes. You managed to talk about a tax hike as a spending reduction. Can we afford that and the royalty checks you're going to have to send to George Orwell? That's the weirdest way of... just say "tax hike"! That's like saying, "I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to add calories to my excluded food intake!"
