If President Obama gets his way, a loaf of bread will increase by 25¢.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama recently met with three of his top advisors including civilian advisor Oprah Winfrey.

The group discussed ways of trying to repay China some of the $17 trillion that she has lent to the United States.

One unnamed advisor asked about the possibility of paying off some of the money with pizzas.

He noted that the United States could strike up a deal with Pizza Hut to purchase large two-item pizzas for $7 each and then turn around and let China have them for $13.

Oprah Winfrey said that it was a great idea and she said that she knows the owners of Pizza Hut and she will run the idea by them.

The president then suggested that he is planning on levying a 25¢ tax on each loaf of bread.

When asked that this idea would greatly hurt the lower income families, President Obama paused and said that he would issue an exemption on the 25¢ tax to poor people.

SIDENOTE: An inside source revealed that the president is also considering taxing other items such as orange juice, ketchup, salt, and Oreo Cookies.
