  •  Fiscal conservatism might sound good on paper (8+ / 0-)

    but the reality is brutal. In the middle of the worst economic downturn in a hundred years is not the time to cut anything that keeps people's heads above the water.

    What they're going to do is shift the burden onto states that are already running huge deficits and, in the end, will have to be bailed out.

    It's a stupid and short-sighted public policy that protects their flanks during the campaign season and unworthy of politicians who consider themselves an august body. Their action are those of self-centered political hacks, worried more about their sorry hides than the constituents they serve.

    Felt good to get that out. :)
