rather than post the entire article ill just pose a question...If the health care bill...and cap & trade...and Obama's budget etc...etc...etc...are supposed to be deficit neutral, then why raise the debt limit......again? This will be the 7th raise since 2001 (at least since the data i have only shows 2007 projections...not up to 2009), I thought the Dems campaigned on being different from Bush...yet they renew crummy unconstitutional legislation (the Patriot act) and continue to raise the debt limit for government spending plans...they must assume that we are idiots and cant look at history...thats got to be the only explanation for this.
