    Ditto for this jackass:

    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the incoming chairman of the House Budget Committee, has wondered what Republicans would "get in exchange" for raising the debt ceiling.

    But, apparently, many of the Republicans don't care if they have to wreck the whole economy to get what thye want.  I guess their consolation as we're all starving in soup lines would be knowing that they guaranteed that Obama will only have a single term...

    What amazes me is that the news media treat jackasses like Paul Ryan as if they're serious policy advocates.  I'm sorry -- but when you're willing to talk in such casual terms about what you're going to get in return for not triggering a worldwide depression, I think you should be treated as an economic terrorist, not as a "serious person".
