Bill Maher blogged on Friday that President Barack Obama should use a fiscal cliff deal as a “personal f—k you” to the Koch brothers by doing something about global warming.

In a post Friday, Maher wrote:“Since we’re looking for new revenue streams that aren’t income taxes, Obama should use this budget crisis — if you can call it that — to do something about global warming with a carbon tax.”

He continued:“This may be his last and only chance to do something big since cap and trade didn’t work. And it would be just desserts for the oil and coal industries that went all in for Mitt Romney, a nice little personal f—- you to the Koch brothers.”

The host of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” also wrote that he thinks Americans have confused the debt ceiling with what it means to go off the fiscal cliff.

Maher wrote:“Going off the fiscal cliff means paying off our debt by raising taxes and cutting government spending.”

He added:“Everybody knows that more government spending — whether it’s in the form of tax expenditures or social services, helps the economy grow. But you have to balance that with not letting your budget get out of hand.”

It takes a real loser to care what comes out of the mouth of Bill Maher.
