    As of today the debt is 10.5 trillion plus a few million. It will be 15.75 trillion or more 4 years from today. That is the bet.

    How can you have Keynesianism when nothing has been saved anyway?

    No. It's the free market's fault. St. Keynes will show us the light.

    Back to Barney. He was a major player in the fanny/freddie mess and has done nothing but point fingers since. Yes, both parties pretty much suck right now. But, Barney Frank sets the bar for a pathetic politician.

    This week he called for a 20% decrease in Defense Spending. So he's all for this B.S. bailout...he wants more deficit spending....but he's willing to leave our military under-funded.

    Side Note: CAN the military cut funding? Absolutely. I personally know that we waste a lot of funds in the Military and we can cut a lot of spending. But you don't advocate cutting the military budget while pissing away funds on Corporate welfare and payments to people who'd rather loaf around then work.
