Sen. Max Baucus (D - Montana)

"We have gone to the restaurant. We have eaten the meal. Now the only question is whether we will pay the check...We simply must do so."

- Statement about Congress's desire to raise the debt limit another $1.9 trillion.

**An additional $1.9 trillion will take our current debt ceiling to $14.3 trillion. A trillion is an unfathomable number, and I'm sure most have no understanding of how much money it is, but there is a simple way to analyse it: The estimated Gross Domestic Product for the U.S. is around $14.2 trillion...That means the current Congress wants to sign off on more debt than we can produce in a year, let alone actually pay off.

Maybe these fools might want to start thinking about eating at home, instead of going "to the restaurant."...Or at the very least, they should hit the Wendy's dollar menu instead of Ruth's Chris Steak House.

Nah. They just want to keep running up the tab.

O-M-G!!! The November elections can't come soon enough.**
