CDR: Budgetosis

Budgetosis is a term used to describe noticeably unpleasant odors exhaled during speeches, discussions, remarks, comments, press conference answers and Sunday news show appearances regarding government expenditures. Budgetosis has a significant impact — personally, socially and economically— on those individuals who fear and suffer the heartbreak of funding government (taxiphobia).

In most cases (85–90%), bad budget breath originates directly in the mouth itself, as no evidence of reflection, thought or contemplation can be evidenced in the words expelled or their meaning. The intensity of bad budget breath differs due to partisan position, the particulars of program funding and the targeted constituency group effected by any proposed spending change. Budgetosis may be transient, but most often occurs in Washington DC and state capitols, and usually intensifies during campaign seasons.

When left untreated, the anaerobic respiration of such budgetary verbal bacteria can yield either the putrescent smell of indole, skatole, polyamines, or the “rotten egg” smell of volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) such as hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, Allyl methyl sulfide, and dimethyl sulfide.

Electorally severing and removing the offending tongue is often the only cure.
