Mary Landreau asks "Would you want the public option if ity bankrupts the government?" thoughtfully. Yes, did she ask that before we invaded Iraq? Afghanistan?
How bogus is that question?! Maybe we can move money around the budget to make ends meet. Jeez, maybe a new battleship is not needed. Maybe a new bunker buster bomb. Maybe a research project on arctic seals. Maybe we need thios and some fiscal responsibility.
Christ, what a red herring! Maybe government officials need to earn their pay by balancing the budget band doing the right thing.
