Oh, By The Way

This is an astounding fact: “The federal debt increased $54.1 billion in the eight days preceding the deal made by President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D.-Nev.) and House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) to cut $38.5 billion in federal spending for the remainder of fiscal year 2011, which runs through September.”

So the question becomes if this latest round of budget talks was so contentious, what the fuck happens when the jack-offs in Washington actually have to do the work necessary to fix the budget problems? We’re talking slashing defense, raising taxes, raising the retirement age, slashing entitlements, etc.
