Maryilyn Monroe – Pop art

This is an image I popped into some modern-day pop art!  With a little Illustrator fun and Photoshop magic, I created this image.  Adding a zebra print and a bit of color to the backing to finish it off.  Hope you like!  Here’s the image I worked off of in making my pop art.  Of course she’s much prettier than anything I can create of her, but I still love how my pop art of her came out!  I changed it up and gave her some dark hair, though.

Marilyn Monroe quotes - I just love her words of wisdom. 
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

“I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.”
“If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.”

“If you’re gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.”

“When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them.”

“It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.”

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

“Ever notice how ‘What the hell’ is always the right answer?”

“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”

“I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.”

“She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know ”

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”

“Who said nights were for sleep?”

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

“The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.”

“All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren’t.”

“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”

“We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.”

“You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.”

“It’s not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.”

“If I’d observed all the rules I’d never have got anywhere.”

“It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You’re not alone.”

“I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.”

“Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.”

“its better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what your not”

“Dogs never bite me. Just humans.”

“I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”

“Sex is part of nature. I go along with nature.”

“I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one.”

“I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot!”

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”

“It’s all make believe, isn’t it?”

“You never know what life is like, until you have lived it.”

“Diamonds are a girls best friend.”

“The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.”

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.”

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.”

“I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it. ”

“I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.”

“If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question, I’ve got to follow it through, what am I supposed to do, look intelligent?”

“We are all born sexual creatures,thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.”

“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course”

“Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.”

“Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

“I’ve been on a calendar, but never on time.”
Marilyn Monroe quotes (showing 51-100 of 100)

“I love to do the things the censors won’t pass.”

“I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent. ”

“I learned to walk as a baby and I haven’t had a lesson since.”

“A sex symbol becomes a thing. I hate being a thing.”

“I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.”

“I have too many fantasies to be a housewife…. I guess I am a fantasy.”

“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together”

“Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don’t expect me to be serious about my work. ”

“I am invariably late for appointments – sometimes as much as two hours. I’ve tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.”

“I’m pretty but I’m not beautiful.  I sin but I’m not the devil. I’m good but I’m not an angel”

“Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.”

“Die Liebe und die Arbeit sind die beiden einzigen wahren Dinge in unserem Leben. Sie gehören zusammen, sonst ist es schief. Die Arbeit ist selbst eine Form der Liebe.

Love and work are the only two real things in our lives. They belong together, otherwise it is off. Work is in itself a form of love.”

“I’m for the individual as opposed to the corporation. The way it is the individual is the underdog, and with all the things a corporation has going for them the individual comes out banged on her head. The artist is nothing. It’s really tragic. ”

“Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.”

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them.”

“Looking back, I guess I used to play-act all the time. For one thing, it meant I could live in a more interesting world than the one around me. ”

“Friendship is the bestiest thing that comes to life . Friends will always be there for you don’t worry about the fakes worry about the people who had your back from the start and never treated you wrong always remember they are your real friends don’t never take them as granted because one day your going to lose a good friend by the way your action’s are when you see a good friend stick to that person.”

“I read poetry to save time.”

“A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night”

President Obama tackles the debt speech

So I’m trying out to become a realtime captioner next week and I’ve been practicing by writing to CNN today.  And here’s President Obama’s speech from today.  I did the best I could writing it.  It’s a lot different from being a reporter in a deposition being that it’s pure literary.  Anyhow…here’s my rough from the speech today.

Thought I’d share it with you.  I did okay but know there are errors in some areas, but I’m sure if I were writing the news on a daily basis I’d have my dictionary built up to include words and names that appear.  Wish me luck!  I think a few more days of practice and I’ll be ready for my realtime test.

SPEECH

BARACK OBAMA: Thank you.  Please have a seat, everyone.  It is wonderful to be back at GW.  I want you to know that one of the reasons I worked so hard with democrats and republicans to keep the government open was so that I could show up here today.  I want to make sure all of you had one more excuse to skip class.  You’re welcome.  Uh — I want to give a special thanks to Steven Knapp, the president of GW, I just saw him, where is he?  There he is right there.  I want to — we’ve got a lot of distinguished gifts here, a couple of people I want to acknowledge.  First of all my outstanding vice president Joe Biden is here.  Our secretary of the treasurer Tim Geithner is in the house.  Jack lieu, the director of the office of management and budget.  Gene Sperling, chair of the national economic council is here.  Members of our bipartisan fiscal commission are here including the two outstanding chairs Erskine Bowles and Allen Simpson are here.  And we have a number of members of Congress here today, I’m grateful for all of you taking the time to attend.  What we’ve been debating here in Washington over the last few weeks will affect the lives of the students here and families all across America in potentially profound ways.  This debate over budgets and deficits is about more than just numbers on a page.  It’s about more than just cutting and spending.  It’s about the kind of future that we want.  Alternates about the kind of country that we believe in.  And that’s what I want to spend some time talking about today.  From our first days as a nation, we have put our faith in free markets and free enterprise as the engine of America’s wealthy and prosperity.  More than citizens of any other country we are rugged individuals, self-reliant, with a healthy skepticism of too much government.  But there’s always been another thread running through our history.  A belief that we’re all connected.  And that there’s some things we can only do together as a nation.  We believe in the words of the first republican president, Abe ham Lincoln, that true government we should do together what we cannot do as well for ourselves.  And so we built a strong military to keep us secure and public schools and universities to educate our citizens.  We’ve laid down railroads and highways to facilitate travel in Commerce.  We’ve supported the work of scientists and researchers, whose discoveries have saved lives, unleashed repeated technological revolutions and led to countless new jobs in entire new industries.  Each of us has benefited from these investments and we’re a more prosperous country as a result.  Part of this American belief that we’re all connected also expresses itself in a conviction that each one of us deserves some basic measure of security and dignity.  We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, hard times or bad luck, a crippling illness or layoff may strike any one of us.  There but for the grace of god go I, we say to ourselves.  And so we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us healthcare and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work.  Unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss.  And Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, those with disabilities.  We’re a better country because of these commitments.  I’ll go further.  We would not be a great country without those commitments.  And for more of the last century, our nation found a way to afford these investment and priorities with the taxes paid by its citizens.  As a country that values fairness, wealthier individuals have traditionally borne a greater share of this burden than the middle class for those less fortunate.  Everybody pays but the wealthier are borne a little bit more.  This is not because we begrudge those who have done well.  Benefited most from our way of live can afford to give a little bit more.  More over this belief hasn’t hindered the success of those at the top of the income scale.  They continue to do better and better with each passing year.  Now, at certain times, particularly during war or recession, our nation has had to borrow money to pay for some of our priorities.  As most families understand, a little credit card debt isn’t going to hurt if it’s temporary.  But as far back as the 1980s, America started amassing debt at more alarming levels.  And our ladders began to realize that a larger challenge was on the horizon.  They knew that eventually the baby boom generation would retire, which meant a much bigger portion of our citizens would be relying on programs like Medicare, Social Security and possibly Medicaid.  Like parents with young children who know they have to start saving for the college years, America had to start borrowing less and start saving more to prepare for the retirement of an entire generation.  To meet this challenge our leaders came together three times during the 1990s to reduce our nation’s deficit.  Three times.  They forged historic agreements that required tough decisions made by the first president bush, then made by President Clinton, by democratic congresses and by a republican Congress.  All three agreements asked for shared responsibility and shared sacrifice.  But they largely protected the middle class.  They largely protected our commitment to seniors.  They protected our key investments in our future.  As a result of these bipartisan efforts, America’s finances were in great shape by the year 2000.  We went from deficit to surplus.  America was actually on track to becoming completely debt free.  And we were prepared for the retirement of the baby boomers.  But after democrats and republicans committed to fiscal discipline during the 1990s we lost our way in the decade that followed.  We increased spending dramatically for two wars and an expensive prescription drug program, but we didn’t pay for any of this new spending.  Instead we made the problem worse with trillions of dollars in unpaid for tax cuts.  Tax cuts that went to every millionaire and billionaire in the country.  Tax cuts that will force us to borrow an average of $5 billion every year every the next decade.  To give you an idea of how much damage this caused to this nation’s checkbook, consider this, in the last decade if we had simply found a way to pay for the tax cuts and prescription drug cut, but that’s not what happened.  So by the time I took office, we once again found ourselves deeply in debt and unprepared for a baby boomer retirement that is now starting to take place.  When I took office our projected deficit annual was more than $1 trillion.  On top of that we faced a terrible finance crisis and a recession that like most recessions led us to temporarily borrow even more.  In this case we took a series of emergency steps that saved millions of jobs, kept credit flowing and provided working families extra money in their pocket.  It was absolutely the right thing to do.  But these steps were expensive.  And added to our deficits in the short term.  So that’s how our fiscal challenge was created.  That’s how we got here.  And now that our economic recovery is gaining strength, democrats and republicans must come together and restore the fiscal responsibility that served us so well in the 1990s.  We have to live within our means.  We have to reduce our deficit.  And we have to get back on a path that will allow us to pay down our debt.  And we have to do it in a way that protects the recovery, protects the investments we need to grow, protects jobs and helps us win the future.  Before I get into how we can achieve this goal, some of you, particularly the younger people here, you don’t qualify, Joe.  Some of you might be wondering why is this so important?  Why does this matter to me?  Well, here’s why.  Even after our economy recovers, our government will still be on track to spend more money that than it takes in throughout this decade and beyond.  That means we’ll have to keep borrowing more from countries like China.  That means more of your tax dollars each year will go towards paying off the interest on all the loans that we keep taking out.  By the end of this decade, the interest that we owe on our debt could rise to nearly $1 trillion.  Think about that.  That’s the interest.  Just the interest payments.  Then as the baby boomers start to retire in greater numbers and healthcare costs continue to rise, the situation will get even worse.  By 2025, the amount of taxes we currently pay will only be enough to finance our healthcare programs, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security and the interest we owe on our debt.  That’s it.  Every other national priority, education, transportation, even our national security, will have to be paid for with borrowed money.  Now, ultimately all of this rising debt will cost us jobs and damage our economy.  It will prevent us from making the investments we need to in the future.  We won’t be able to afford good schools, new research or the repair of roads, all of those things that create new jobs and businesses here in America.  Businesses will be less likely to invest and open shop in a country unwilling and unable to balance its books.  If our creditors starting with that we may be unable to pay back our debts, that could drive up interest rates for everybody who borrows money, making it harder for businesses to expand and higher, or families to take out a mortgage.  Here’s the good news.  That doesn’t have to be our future.  That doesn’t have to be the country that we leave our children.  We can solve this problem.  We came together as democrats and republicans to meet this challenge before.  We can do it again.  But that starts by being honest about what’s causing our deficit you see, most Americans tend to dislike government spending in the abstract.  But like the stuff that it buys.  Most of us, regardless of party affiliation, believe that we should have a strong military and strong defense.  Most Americans believe we should invest in education and medical research.  Most Americans think we should protect commitments like Social Security and Medicare.  Without even looking at a approximately, my finely honed political instincts tells me almost nobody believes they should be paying higher taxes.  So because all of this spending is popular with both republicans and democrats alike and because nobody wants to pay higher taxes, politicians are often eager to feed the impression that solving the problem is just a matter of eliminating waste and abuse.  You’ll hear that phrase a lot.  We just need to eliminate waste and abuse.  The implication is that tackling the deficit issue won’t require tough choices.  Politicians suggest we can somehow close our entire deficit by eliminating things like foreign aid, even though foreign aid makes up about 1 percent of our entire federal budget.  So here’s the truth.  Around two-thirds of our budget, two-thirds, is spend on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and national security.  Two-thirds.  Programs like unemployment insurance, student loans, veteran’s benefits and tax credits for working families take up another 20 percent.  What’s left after interest on the debt is just 12 percent for everything else.  That’s 12 percent for all of our national priorities.  Education, clean energy, medical research, transportation, our national parks, food safety, keeping our air and water clean, you name it, all of that accounts for 12 percent of our budget.  Now, up till now the debate here in Washington, the cuts proposed by a lot of folks in Washington have focused exclusively on that 12 percent.  But cuts to that 12 percent alone won’t solve the problem.  So any serious plan to tackle our deficit will require us to put everything on the table.  And take on excess spending wherein it exists in the budget.  A serious plan doesn’t require us to balance our budget overnight.  In fact, economists think that with the economy just starting to grow again we need a phase-in approach, but it does require tough decisions and support from our leaders in both parties now.  Above all it will require us to choose a vision of America we want to see five years, ten years, 20 years down the road.  Now, to their credit, one vision has been presented and championed by republicans in the house of representative.  And embraced by several of their party’s presidential candidates.  It’s a plan that aims to reduce our deficit by $4 trillion over the next ten years and one that addresses the challenge of Medicare and Medicaid in the years after that.  These are both worthy goals.  They’re worthy goals for us to achieve.  But the way this plan achieves those goals would lead to a fundamentally different America than the one we’ve known, certainly in my lifetime.  In fact, I think it would be fundamentally different than what we’ve known throughout our history.  A 70 percent cut in clean energy.  A 25 percent cut in education.  A 30 percent cut in transportation.  Cuts in college Pell grants that will grow to more than $1,000 per year.  That’s the proposal.  These aren’t the kind of cuts you make when you’re trying to get rid of some waste or find some extra savings in the budget.  These are the kind of cuts that the fiscal commission proposed.  These are kinds of cuts that tell us we can’t afford the America that I believe in and I think you believe in.  I believe it paints a vision of our future that is deeply pessimistic.  It’s a vision that says if our roads crumble and our bridges collapse, we can’t afford to fix them.  If there are bright young Americans who have the drive and will but not the money to go to college, we can’t send them.  Go to China and you’ll see businesses opening research labs in solar facilities, south Korean childrens are out pacing our kids in math and science, they’re scrambling to figure out how to put more money into investigation.  Brazil is investing billions in new infrastructure, and can run half their cars not on high gasoline, but biofluids.  The greatest nation on earth can’t afford any of this.  It’s a vision that says America can’t afford to keep the promise we made to care for our seniors.  It says that ten years from now if you’re a 65 year old who’s eligible for Medicare, you should have to pay nearly $6,400 more than you would today.  It says instead of guaranteed healthcare you will get a voucher.  And if that voucher isn’t worth enough to buy the insurance that’s available in the open marketplace, well, tough luck.  You’re on your own.  Put simply, it ends Medicare as we know it.  It’s a vision that says up to 50 million Americans have to lose their health insurance in order for us to reduce the deficit.  Who are these 50 million Americans?  Many are somebody’s grandparents, maybe one of yours, who wouldn’t be able to afford nursing home care without Medicaid.  Many are poor children.  Some are middle class families who have children with autism or Down syndrome.  Some of these kids with disabilities are — the disabilities are so severe that they require 24 hour care.  These are the Americans we’d be telling to fend for themselves.  And worst of all, this is a vision that says even though Americans can’t afford to invest in education at current levels, clean energy, even though we can’t afford to maintain our commitment on Medicare and Medicaid, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy.  Think about that.  In the last decade the average income of the bottom 90 percent of all working Americans actually declined.  Meanwhile the top 1 percent saw their economic rise by an average of more than a quarter of a million dollars each.  That’s who needs to pay less taxes?  They want to give people like me a 200,000-dollar tax cut that’s paid for by asking 33 seniors each to pay $6,000 more in health cost.  That’s not right.  That’s not going to happen as long as I’m president.  This vision is less about reducing the deficit than it is about changing the basic social compact in America.  Ronald Reagan’s own budget director said there’s nothing serious or courageous about this plan.  There’s nothing serious about a plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.  I don’t think there’s anything courageous from those who can least afford it and don’t have any clout on capitol hill.  That’s not a vision of America I know.  The America I know is generous and compassion.  It’s a land of opportunity and optimism.  Yes, we take responsibility for ourselves, but we also take responsibility for each other.  For the country we want and the future that we share.  We’re a nation that built a railroad across a continent and brought a light to communities shrouded in darkness.  We sent a generation to college on the GI bill and we saved millions of seniors from poverty with Social Security and Medicare.  We have led the world in scientific research and technological break throughs that have transformed millions of lives, that’s who we are.  This is the America I know.  We don’t have to choose between a future of spiraling debt and one where we fore fit our investment and our people and our country.  To meet our fiscal challenge we will need to make reforms.  We will all need to make sacrifices, but we do not have to sacrifice the America we believe in.  As long as I’m president we won’t.  So today I’m proposing a more balanced approach to achieve $4 trillion in deficit reduction over 12 years.  It’s an approach that borrows from the recommendations of the bipartisan fiscal commission that I appointed last year.  And it builds on the roughly $1 trillion in deficit reduction I already proposed in my 2012 budget.  It’s an approach that puts every kind of spending on the table.  But one that protects the middle class our promise to seniors and our investments in the future.  The first step in our approach is to keep annual domestic spending low by building on the savings that both parties agreed to last week.  That step alone will save us about $750 billion over 12 years.  We will make the tough cuts necessary to achieve these savings.  Including in programs that I care deeply about.  But I will not sacrifice the core investments we need to grow and create jobs.  We will invest in medical research.  We will invest in clean energy technology.  We will invest in new roads, airports, broad band access.  We will invest in education.  We will invest in job training.  We will do what we need to do to compete and we will win the future.  The second step in our approach is to find additional savings in our defense budget.  Now, as commander in chief I have no greater responsibility than protecting our national security.  And I will never accept cuts that compromise our ability to defend our home land or America’s interests around the world.  But as the chairman of the joint chief has said, the greatest long term threat to national security is national debt.  Just as we must find more savings in domestic programs we must do the same in defense.  And we can do that while still keeping ourselves safe.  Over the last two years secretary Bob Gates has courageously taken on wasteful spending, saving $400 billion in current and future spending.  I believe we can do that again.  We need to not only eliminate waste and approve efficiency and effectiveness, but we’re going to have to conduct a fundamental review of nation’s capabilities in a changing world.  I intend to work with secretary gates and joint chief on this executive review.  The third step in our approach is to further reduce healthcare spending in our budget.  Now, here the difference with the house republican plan could not be clear.  Their plan, essentially lower the government healthcare bills by asking seniors and poor families to pay them instead.  Our approach lowers the government’s healthcare bills by reducing the cost of healthcare itself.  Already the reforms we’ve passed in the healthcare law will reduce our deficit by $1 trillion.  My approach would build on these reforms.  We will reduce wasteful subsidies and erroneous payments S we will cut spending on.  We will work with governors of both parties to demand more efficiency for Medicaid.  We will change the way we pay for healthcare, not by the procedure or the number of days spent in the hospital, but with new incentives for doctors and hospitals to.  And we will slow the growth of Medicare cost by strengthening, medical charities and consumers who will look at all the evidence and recommend the best ways to reduce unnecessary spending while protecting assess to the service seniors need.  We believe the reforms we propose to strengthen Medicare and Medicaid will enable us to keep these commitments to our citizens while saving us $500 billion by 2023 and an additional $1 trillion in the decade after that.  But if we’re wrong and Medicare costs rise faster than we expect, then this approach will give the independent commission the authority to make additional savings by further improving Medicare.  But let me be absolutely clear.  I will preserve these healthcare programs as a promise we make to each other in this society.  I will not allow Medicare to become a voucher program that leaves seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry, with a shrinking benefit to pay for rising costs.  I will not tell families with children who have disabilities that they have to fend for themselves.  We will reform these programs, but we will not abandon the fundamental commitment this country has kept for generations.  That includes by the way our commitment to Social Security.  While Social Security is not the cause of our deficit, it faces real long term challenges in a country that’s growing older.  As I said in the state of the union, both parties should work together now to strengthen Social Security for future generations.  But we have to do it without putting at risk current retirees or the most vulnerable or people with disabilities, without slashing benefits for future generations and without subjecting Americans guaranteed retirement income to the whims of the stock market, and it can be done.  The fourth step in our approach is to reduce spending in the tax code, so-called tax expenditures, in the summer I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, because it’s the only way I could prevent tax hike on middle class Americans, but we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society.  We can’t afford it.  And I refuse to renew them again.  Beyond that the tax code is also loaded up with spending on things like itemized deductions.  While I agree with the goals of many of these deductions from home ownership to charitable giving, we can’t ignore the fact that they provide millionaires an average tax break of $75,000 but do nothing for the typical middle class family that doesn’t itemize.  My budget calls for limiting itemized deductions.  So that the amount of taxes you pay isn’t determined by what kind of accountant you can afford.  I believe reform should protect the middle class, promote economic growth and build on the fiscal commission’s model of reducing tax expenditures, so there is enough savings on both.  As I called for in the state of union we should reform our corporate tax code as well to make our businesses and economy more competitive.  So this is my approach to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the next 12 years.  It’s an approach that achieves about $2 trillion in spending cuts across the budget.  It will lower our interest payments on the debt by $1 trillion.  It calls for tax reform to cut about $1 trillion in tax expenditures, spending in the tax code.  And it achieves these goals while protecting the middle class, protecting our commitment to seniors and protecting our investments in the future.  Now, in the coming years, if the recovery speeds up and our economy grows faster than our current projections we can make even greater progress than I’ve pledged here.  To hold Washington and to hold me accountable and make sure the debt burden continues to decline my plan includes a debt fail safe.  If by 2014 our debt is not projected to fall as a shared economy F we haven’t hit our targets, Congress has failed to act, then my plan will require us to come together and make up additional savings with more spending cuts and more spending reductions in the tax code.  That should be an incentive for us to act boldly now instead of kicking our problems further down the road.  So this is our vision for America.  This is my vision for America.  A vision where we live within our means while still investing in our future.  Where everyone makes sacrifices, but no one bears all the burden.  Where we provide a basic measure of security for our citizens and we provide rising opportunity for our children.  There will be those who vigorously disagree with my approach.  I can guarantee that as well.  Some will argue we should not even consider ever, ever, raising taxes even if only on the wealthiest Americans.  It’s just an article of faith too.  I say that a time where the tax burden on the wealthy is at its lowest level in half a century the most fortunate among us can afford to pay a little more.  I don’t need another tax cut.  Warn buffet doesn’t need another tax cut.  Not if we have to pay for it by making seniors pay more for Medicare or by cutting kids from head start.  Or by taking away college scholarships that I wouldn’t be here without and that some of you would not be here without.  And here’s the thing.  I believe the most wealthiest Americans would agree with me.  They want to give back to their country.  A country that’s done so much for them.  It’s just Washington hasn’t asked them to.  Others will say that we shouldn’t even talk about cutting spending until the economy is fully recovered.  These are mostly folks in my part.  I’m sympathetic to this view, which is one of the reasons I supported the payroll tax cuts we passed in September.  It’s also why we have to use a scalpel and not a machete to reduce the deficit, so that we can keep making the investments to create jobs, but doing nothing on the deficit is just not an option.  Our debt has grown so large that we could do real damage to the economy if we don’t begin a process now to get our fiscal house in order.  Finally there are those who believe we shouldn’t make any reforms to Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security out of fear that any talk of change to these programs will immediately usher in the sort of steps that the house republicans have proposed.  And I understand those fears, but I guarantee that if we don’t make any changes at all, we won’t be able to keep our commitment to a retiring generation that will live longer and will face higher healthcare costs than those who came before.  Indeed, to those in my own party, I say that if we truly believe in a progressive vision of our society, we have an obligation to prove that we can afford our commitments.  If we believe the government can make a difference in people’s lives, we have the obligation to prove that it works by making government smarter and leaner and more effective.  Of course there are those who simply say there’s no way we can come together at all and agree on a solution to this challenge.  They’ll say that politics of this city are just too broken, the choices are just too hard, the parties are just too far apart.  And after a few years on this job, I have some sympathy for this view.  But I also know that we’ve come together before and met big challenges.  Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill came together to save Social Security for future generations.  The first president bush and democratic Congress came together to reduce the deficit.  President Clinton and a republican Congress battled each other ferociously, disagreed on just about everything, but they still found a way to balance the budget.  And in the last few months, both parties have come together to pass historic tax reliefs and spending cuts.  I know there are republicans and democrats in Congress who want to see a balanced approach to deficit reduction.  And even those republicans I disagree with most strongly I believe are sincere about wanting to do right by their country.  We may disagree on our visions, but I truly believe they want to do the right thing.  So I believe we can and must come together again.  This morning I met with democratic and republican leaders in Congress to discuss the approach that I lay out today.  And in early May the vice president will begin regular meetings with leaders in both parties with the aim of reaching a final agreement on a plan to reduce the deficit and get it done by the end of June.  I don’t expect the details in any final agreement to look exactly like the approach I laid out today.  This is a democracy, it’s not how things work.  I’m eager to hear other ideas from all ends of the political spectrum.  And though I’m sure the criticism of what I’ve said here today will be fierce in some quarters and my critique of the house republican approach has been strong, Americans deserve and will demand that we all make an effort to bridge our differences and find common ground.  This larger debate that we’re having, this larger debate about the size and role of government, it has been with us since our founding days.  And during moments of great challenge and change, like the one that we’re living through now, the debate gets sharper and it gets more vigorous.  That’s not a bad thing.  In fact, it’s a good thing.  As a country that prizes both our individual freedom and our obligations to one another, this is one of the most important debates that we can have.  But no matter what we argue, no matter where we stand, we’ve always held certain beliefs as Americans.  We believe that in order to preserve our own freedoms and pursue our own happiness, we can’t just think about ourselves.  We have to think about the country that made these liberties possible.  We have to think about our fellow citizens with whom we share a community.  And we have to think about what’s required to preserve the American dream for future generations.  This sense of responsibility to each other and to our country, this isn’t a partisan feeling.  This isn’t a democratic or republican idea.  It’s patriotism.  The other day I received a letter from a man in Florida.  He started off by telling me he didn’t vote for me.  And he hasn’t always agreed with me.  But even though he’s worried about our economy and the estate of our politics, here’s what he said.  He said “I still believe, I believe in that great country that my grandfather told me about.  I believe that somewhere lost in this quagmire of petty bickering on every news station, the American dream is still alive.” we need to use our dollars here, rebuilding, refurbishing and restoring all that our ancestors struggled to maintain and create.  We as a people must do this together.  No matter the color of the state one comes from or the side of the aisle one might sit on.  I still believe, I still believe as well.  And I know that if we can come together and uphold our responsibilities to one another and to this larger enterprise that is America, we will keep the dream of our founding alive in our time.  And we will pass it on to our children.  We will pass onto our children a country that we believe in.  Thank you.  God bless you.  And may god bless the United States of America.
