The next time a Republican goes on TV and talks about the balancing the US budget like a family budget, the Democratic counterpart should just say:
Republicans like to talk about the budget as if its a family budget. What they don't tell you is that the Republican Mom and Dad sit their kids around the kitchen table and tell them: "Mom and Dad want to balance the budget. We just bought a sports car and so there is no money for your college education. Mom and Dad want to take a vacation trip and so there is no money to fix the roof. Mom and Dad got health insurance, and here is a coupon for you. See what insurance you can find." Republicans shouldn't be trusted with the family budget either.
