And, yes, the questions are as predictable and silly as you would expect. And as blatantly dishonest as you would expect. Like this one:
4. Has The Obama Administration Ignored Paying Off Old Bills, Instead Using The Debt Ceiling Increase On New Spending? If Not, What Past Bills Did The Obama Administration Pay With The Last Debt Ceiling Agreement (Considering Our Debt INCREASED Since Its Passage)?These guys used to work for Cantor, they know how the debt ceiling works and they know that the debt ceiling needs to be raised to pay for the spending that Congress has already authorized.
And then there's this one:
5. As President Obama’s Treasury Secretary, Will Jack Lew Ensure That Using Past Bipartisan Debt Reduction Agreements As Precedent Remains “The Right Way To Do It”? If So, What Spending Cuts And Entitlement Reforms Will The Administration Be Open To Negotiating?House Republicans still haven't released what specific spending cuts to entitlements they want, so to that one, show us yours first, young guns.
If nothing else, it's a good preview of the rhetoric we're going to be seeing coming from the Republicans over the interminable fights they're going to create over the next sequester fight, the debt ceiling negotiations, and the Lew confirmation.
