In preparation for today’s vote to raise the debt ceiling in the House, the most powerful democrat in congress, Nancy Pelosi, had this to say. (Emphasis mine).
“What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget….we’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.”
Hmmm, life on this planet as we know it today. Golly, our government spends $1.7 trillion more than it takes in every year and will for the foreseeable future if nothing is done... Sounds good to me! Sign me up for the new world order (you know, that insanely radical one where you expect your government to live within its means?).
