Balance

Am I the only one that finds the new Washington definition of balance to be ironic? Increase taxes and increase spending.
Mind you this is on both sides of the aisle. Because when $900 billion in cuts over 10 years is meant to offset an immediate $900 billion increase in the debt ceiling, the result is a net increase isn't it? Or did the laws of math change while I was sleeping?

Washington has a math system that is way different from anyone else's.

That is so true Jan. They should have to pass a math test before being allowed to run.

Good to see you back here Jan!

I'll add that voters also ought to be required to pass a simple math test before voting because we elected them and keep re-electing most of them.
