The Five Percent Solution

Article link: Obama claims border fence complete; claims Republicans want a moat
To understand the budget
From Obama’s point of view,
Just put a pen to paper
And do a quick review.
His border fence mathematics
Provides the clearest clue
Of Democrat accounting,
Where numbers are askew.
Start by calculating
A fence from here to there,
Of seven hundred miles
To set our border square.
Let’s say we’ve built for miles –
A touch o’er thirty-six –
A double chain-link roadblock
Through rocks and stones and sticks.
My basic math informs me
That’s five percent; a feat!
Obama math would counter:
“It’s basically complete.”
Apply that same accounting
To federal expense
Above the country’s income,
And spending more makes sense!
Our yearly debt addition –
About a trillion-five –
Will drop into the billions:
Just seventy and five.
Obama math is useful
To fans of public bloat;
We need some budget gators,
Surrounded by a moat!
