Sauce for the Gander

The national debt is about to push north of $12 trillion and by law the Senate must vote to okay it. Republicans Senators can and should--loudly--make political hay of it. They could do worse than by quoting the following:
Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren...America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.
Strong words indeed and time tested too; they served well in 2006 for former Senator Barack Obama on the Senate floor when he lambasted, before voting against, the Bush administration's motion to increase the deficit to the then towering figure of $9 trillion. The words should prove even more compelling the second time around.
