Good Point Mr. Linkins

Jason Linkins points out once again the hypocrisy on both sides that if a Senator wants to get serious about the debt, all he has to do is make his point, and propose a solution. But doing so might jeopardize his re-election next time. Good call. Cowards.
Eat The Press: "Naturally, the only thing that will save us is a bipartisan
effort to gut Social Security and Medicare, and the Post's editors tout the 'new
version' of the 'fiscal task force' floated by Senators Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and
Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) to do it. Support for such a task force comes from a group
of senators, any of whom could propose their own deficit reduction measures
right now, if it weren't for the fact that signing their name to such a choice
might put their seat in jeopardy. The main goal of this task force is to shield
such lawmakers from responsibility."

Can you imagine Judd Gregg was to become part of the Obama administration?  Wow.

  1. We desperately need a dialogue about the debt. It is the debt that will wipe us out. No one who has gotten in over his head in debt continues to pile more on. At some point the debt collectors start calling, credit evaporates, and the mortgage is foreclosed. Doesn't it make you a little crazy that our leaders do not believe that the nation can go bankrupt? Are they really so stupid?
