It seems the petulant Democrats are all upset because Mommy & Daddy Americans took their credit cards away from them after they blew their capitol on bogus and wasteful programs and ran up historic deficits.
After emerging from a lunch meeting on Thursday with members of her party and Jack Lew, the White House budget director, Ms Mikulski said her colleagues were feeling “volcanic” about the prospect of a $3,000bn deal to cut deficits and raise the debt ceiling that did not include any higher taxes, adding that it was “like Mount Vesuvius” in the room.
In 2008, the last year President Bush was in office, the annual deficit (then a record) was $485 Billion. This year, after the Democrats ran amok in 2009 and 2010, the deficit is well over three times as much!
The whole point of this debt debate is to RESTORE BALANCE after Democrats screwed up so badly and spent 2 generations worth of income. When I told my 11 year old twins these knuckle heads had spent so much money they would have to work to pay it off, they went ballistic. They couldn’t believe anyone could be allowed to spend money they haven’t even earned yet. The coming generations are not impressed with Democrat performance.
And the Democrats are in denial. They think after the usual BS language and spin they can put their porky snouts back into the trough. Sadly for them, they are actually heading for something other than the trough – like a bacon and eggs breakfast.
