Charge it. Anyone who refers to the GOP as the party of "fiscal responsibility" should be beaten. Severely. And tazers, I'm seeing tazers. Thanks for the $30K in debt.
Congress agreed to let the government borrow another $781 billion Thursday, allowing lawmakers and President Bush to pay for the war in Iraq and combat terrorism without raising taxes or cutting popular domestic programs.

The Senate, on a 52-48 vote, sent to President Bush a bill raising the ceiling on the national debt to nearly $9 trillion and preventing a first-ever default on U.S. Treasury notes. When the government reaches the new ceiling, expected sometime next year, the debt will represent $30,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States.
$9 trillion. That's a lot of zeroes. So you're telling me that cutting revenues and increasing spending doesn't work? I'm shocked.
