    “How The GOP Social Security Plan Screws Everyone Under The Age Of 47”

    Love that title…

    The hostage takers, by the way, are the ones saying that their concession is even discussing a debt ceiling increase. Or, as Jon Stewart put it, the GOP position is not negotiation and compromise:

    “It’s not, ‘Let’s all chip in a buy a keg for the party,’ it’s ‘Buy me a keg or I’ll burn your f***ing house down.'”

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies…

    Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

    – Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), March 20, 2006

    I guess it’s only bad when it’s not Obama doing the spending. Go figure.
