Senate Approves Increase - It's a Trap!

Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station! -
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. Those of us who’d been fighting the big-government policies of Democrat majorities in Congress welcomed them into our ranks. Together we’ve held the line. And slowly but surely, we’ve started turning things around.
The Real Effect
Boy Mitch, you really showed them. 'Gee gosh golly, now we're all serious and stuff.' Excuse me while I clean the BS out of my ear. Let's see - How is the market taking the news? Dow is down almost 2%, (Unicredit (is) locking out down-limit day after day? Why are European indices collapsing as I write this, with the ATX down 2.5%, the Dax down 1.6%, the CAC down 1.7%, Stockholm down 2.6% and the Swiss, usually the bastion of stability, down 3.68% with a rampaging Swiss Franc?) precious metals are surging and anybody with a brain can see that this is not going to help the economy.

I really hate to see what the Republicans grand plan is here. Are we going to now demolish hospitals so that we can increase production? Perhaps set children on fire with napalm to save th...oh wait, that's already going on all over the world already.

To all of you bench warmers out there, THIS is what happens when you give the keys to the car to liars and madmen. You end up with psychopaths who destroy the entire country. Just remember, the Democrats may be marginally driving at the moment, but the Republicans just handed them the keys without a fight.
