Well smack my face and call me Rip Van Winkle, because I must have been sleeping. Otherwise I wouldn’t have missed the fact that we’ve solved the debt crisis.
We have solved the debt crisis, haven’t we? The Gang of Six actually made a meaningful proposal that was accepted by everyone? Obama didn’t veto the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” bill? All those seniors are going to get their Social Security checks come August 3, right?
I mean, if that’s not the case, how could our President in good conscience pour millions of our tax dollars into new and unnecessary departments like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? And new arts initiatives like “Champions of Change“?
No, no, this crisis must be over. Otherwise every Republican in Congress would be locked in solidarity against such ridiculous and extraneous expenditures; and they’d be offering plans to solve the problem, as well as demanding to hear ideas from their Democrat counterparts, as well as the President. Wouldn’t they?
