Yesterday, as the country went, billions by the hour, further into debt, with the federal government spending 40% more than it took in, Democrats again stood against any realistic spending reform.
"We just need to raise taxes on the rich, that will fix everything" said Democratic spokesman Baxter. When a reporter pointed out that doing so would not even begin to fix the problem he replied, "we never miss an opportunity to put party before country-GO BIG BLUE".
When asked about their plans for controlling the ever expanding budget, Baxter said "Why worry? This is just a great opportunity to make political points by describing ANY minor cuts as draconian. We have a formula and we are sticking to it, we promise to take care of voters with money we don't have and they take care of us at election time". "Granted at some point the Ponzi scheme will end, but until then...let's rock"!
