The Debt Limit and Cancer

In Opinion on April 19, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Neither the Republican­s nor the Democrats actually believe what they say about the national debt being “unsustain­able” and a “danger to our economic future.”

If they did, they’d actually do something serious about it.

Think of it this way – a surgeon cuts open a cancer patient and removes only a portion of the tumor.  He figures it would really, really hurt the patient if he takes all the cancer out, and that might make patient go to a different doctor next time he has cancer. . . so he removes only part of the tumor and closes up the incision.

That’s what both parties are doing – leaving the cancer to fester for longer.  It’s going to kill us, sure, but they decide to leave it in there anyway.

Either they’re cruel or they’re lying and don’t really believe what they’re telling us.  Either way, we need a new staff of doctors.  We need a different brand of politician­.
