Deficits, sweet deficits!

Josh Marshall covers it well, as always.

El Presidente is about to ram a spending bill even bigger than the Iraq war down our throats. It will undoubtedly be spent as corruptly as the war funds have. It will undoubtedly be as ineffective as the war has been. It will undoubtedly not be accompanied by a tax increase for the people who can most afford it.

Thus, it will result in further service cuts for people who can least afford them, and a bill with interest to be paid by everyone but the people spending the money.

You clowns that voted for this president, and for the legislators who enable him, are entirely at fault.
