Only Yesterday

Not exactly yesterday, but ....

Quick quiz: what was the last time the US 'debt ceiling' was raised?

Answer: Jan. 28, 2010

And what were the conditions "extracted" by Conservatives?

...after adopting a pay/go amendment requiring any mandatory spending increases or tax cuts to be offset.

That worked so well that Boehner & Co. will try it again.

HT: Vox

The GOP is fundamentally incapable of offsetting the revenue shortfall created by cutting taxes. Why even waste the time putting it writing?
