But the deficit! (Lamar vs. the Stimulus, Pt. 2)

“There is no doubt about the fact that it increases our national debt,” he says. “The debt is not some abstract thing. Our national debt is $10.7 trillion.”

Okay, deficit spending is bad. I’m with you there, Senator. I consider myself a huge national debt hawk.

But raising that argument right now is kind of like arguing for water conservation when the house is on fire. You’ve been in the Senate for six years now supporting George W. Bush; you’re one of the ones who was playing with the matches.
