8.184 Trillion. Dollars.
That's what our current statutory debt ceiling is. And Treasury Secretary John Snow says we will hit that this week, and has asked Congress to raise that debt ceiling, or else the government is simply going to run out of money
. Gosh, Grover Norquist gets his wish at last.
Try to picture that number above in terms of cash; just try. Now consider an amount higher than that. Hell, why not just raise the debt ceiling to infinity?
This is what your conservative Republican administration has spent us into, like drunken, cracksmoking, stripclubbing illiterate sailors. I'd like to take some comfort in the fact that no Democrat ever conducted our government and economy so astoundingly irresponsibly. I'd like to take comfort in the fact that neither I nor anyone else who saw through Bush back when all this could have been averted will have blame for this. But that won't prevent myself, you, and all other Americans from feeling the consequences
, and our children, and our children's children, all for some meaningless tax cuts and a complete waste of a war. And after Clinton had not only gotten us out of our debt mess--which was smaller then
--but left us with a surplus. I hope you kissed that goodbye a few years ago.
But at least they's Christians, ain't that right, Fox viewers? Well, sort of.
Anyway, Republicans and sympathizers: happy that you sold out the country, your souls, and all our forefathers suffered to defend, for this chimp
? Hope so.
