Dems Need To Borrow $1.8 Trillion To Pay Off The Money They Already Screwed Up With

You: Mr. Banker, I need a $100,000 loan to help pay off the $200,000 I owe another bank

Banker: Seriously?

You: Yup

Banker: STFU and GFYS. You’re nuts. I wouldn’t even give you a toaster.

But, you don’t have the power of the whole federal government behind you, and can’t tax the f*ck out of people to cover your spending

House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said Friday that the government needs to borrow at least $1.8 trillion more next year to avoid defaulting on its debts.

Such an increase in the nation’s debt ceiling is much larger than Democrats had contemplated earlier this year.

Of course, you would think that with the debt piling up so fast that Hoyer would say such a thing, the Democrats would take a break on spending, right? Right? RIGHT?

The House voted Thursday to approve half a dozen spending bills contained in one large package, as the chamber races to complete its work before adjourning for the year.

The $447 billion measure, which combines six appropriations bills, passed 221 to 202, with 28 Democrats joining all 174 Republicans present in opposing it. GOP lawmakers said the measure was overinflated and rushed through with little scrutiny, while Democrats said it would fund key priorities.

Republicans are saying that Democrats are spending recklessly, and, considering what they did when they had control of Congress during the Bush years, that is saying quite a bit.
