Well, I don’t know about any of you Tea Party Terrorists, but I feel like Sen. McConnell was right when he said:
“The American people sent a wave of new lawmakers to Congress in last November’s election with a very clear mandate: to put our nation’s fiscal house in order,” McConnell said, “And I want to assure you today that although you may not see it this way, you’ve won this debate.
This is how the GOP leadership sees victory:
US debt shot up $238 billion to reach 100 percent of gross domestic project after the government’s debt ceiling was lifted, Treasury figures showed Wednesday.
Treasury borrowing jumped Tuesday, the data showed, immediately after President Barack Obama signed into law an increase in the debt ceiling as the country’s spending commitments reached a breaking point and it threatened to default on its debt.
The new borrowing took total public debt to $14.58 trillion, over end-2010 GDP of $14.53 trillion, and putting it in a league with highly indebted countries like Italy and Belgium.
Winning sure does feel good right now, doesn’t it?
I used to promote Sen. Tom Coburn for the leadership position in the Senate because I felt Sen. McConnell was weak. I don’t feel that way anymore.
Now I want Rubio or Paul, but I imagine I’ll have to wait a while for that. After all, they don’t even know what winning looks like.
