President Barack Obama is bringing together dozens of experts, advisers and adversaries to discuss how to curb a burgeoning federal deficit laden with Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid obligations.
"We are in desperate times financially and it calls for desperate measures", stated the President.
Among the experts called were Jack Kevorkian, a specialist in reducing the costs of social security, medicare and medicaid.
Also called was a team of specialists from Nigeria who specialize in fundraising.
Plus a group of pirates from Somalia to get the Republicans off their asses and help or be taken to the Potomac and keel-hauled.
Obama's summit at the White House on Monday was the first meeting toward a strategy to address the long-term fiscal health of the nation. The gathering also comes as Obama prepares ambitious plans to cut the federal deficit by half within four years, and a promised other half in the following four years, if re-elected.
"It will require doing all we can to get exploding deficits under control as our economy begins to recover," Obama said in his Internet and radio address. "That work began on Monday, when I convened a fiscal summit of independent well-known experts and unions, advocacy groups and members of Congress, including both conservative and liberal democrats, to discuss how we can cut the trillion-dollar deficit that we've inherited and the two trillion we're adding on."
Also a special team from the Gambino family will review those late on tax payments, including some politicians lately who have turned down an office post.
The Gambino family will also be making a call on some Swiss bankers.
