Quote of the Day
"I'd like to see a plan that cuts $900 trillion."
Alan Simpson, on the debt ceiling deal.
It is obvious that Simpson doesn't realize that the national debt is 14.3. Simpson wouldn't have an answer what to do with the surplus. I can guarantee that Simpson will not want a penny to go to social programs.
People wonder why I bash Obama on policy and triangulation. Only a President obsessed with appearing centrist would appoint someone as ignorant as Simpson to the deficit commission.
