So, Senator Brown and his Democrat buddies thought raising the debt ceiling to $9 trillion was a bad thing. I agree! We never should have let our national debt reach such a ridiculous level. Thus, I assume Sherrod is absolutely opposed to raising the debt ceiling again, per the White House's request. Right?
Not so much.
In a letter to Vice-President Biden, he is insisting that the ceiling be raised and that taxes be raised on energy companies at the same time.
So, let me get this straight, Senator Brown.
- You want to increase the debt ceiling.
- You don't think any spending cuts are necessary.
- And you think the answer to the deficit is higher taxes on gasoline, at a time when gas is $4.00 a gallon.
We'll be sure to help you get that message out, Senator.
