Hiding a Mountain of Debt

Hiding a Mountain of Debt -- by David Broder (the "relentless centrist")

With a bit of bookkeeping legerdemain borrowed from the Bush administration, the Democratic Congress is about to perform a cover-up on the most serious threat to America's economic future.

The real threat is the monstrous debt resulting from the slump in revenue and the staggering sums being committed by Washington to rescuing embattled banks and homeowners -- and the absence of any serious strategy for paying it all back.

The Congressional Budget Office sketched the dimensions of the problem on March 20, and Congress reacted with shock. The CBO said that over the next 10 years, current policies would add a staggering $9.3 trillion to the national debt -- one-third more than President Obama had estimated by using much more optimistic assumptions about future economic growth.

here's McCain's response to Broder's article:


"The Democratic Congress To Perform A Cover Up On The Most Serious Threat to America’s Economic Future"





Are they talking about Peter Orszag -- the Director of the Office of Management and Budget -- (and Tobey Keith Fan and Robert Rubin protege) ?

I'm either taking too much or not enough xanax cause NOTHING WHATSOEVER makes any sense to me anymore.
