This article from the Free Beacon explains what a hoax BO’s $4 Trillion “debt reduction” plan, which Americans will hear touted constantly by the media until election day, is.

However, as Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post’s in-house fact-checker, has made clear: “The repeated claim that Obama’s budget reduces the deficit by $4 trillion is simply not accurate.”

“Virtually no serious budget analyst agreed” with the Obama administration’s accounting with respect to the $4 trillion figure, Kessler found.

. . .  The Office of Management and Budget (OMB)’s own figures reveal that Obama’s budget would net just $14 billion in reduced federal spending over the next decade, compared to its baseline projections, which effectively represents the status quo.

. . .  The result was a plan full of gimmicks, and imaginary savings, that is not “balanced” at all. Ultimately, Kessler notes, “most of Obama’s claimed deficit reduction comes from his proposed tax increases.”
