    The whole budget mess gets wrapped in so many metaphors and euphemisms.  If I hear "austerity diet" one more time, I'm gonna puke.  It's as if debt is synonymous with gluttony and laziness while cutting social programs and support for poor people is synonymous with improving their moral fiber.  Never mind the complete moral hypocrisy in our current tax code which rewards the investor class that basically gets paid to gamble.
