Oh, Yes, It's Both Parties in the Spending Game

Billiam found an essay from which I'll excerpt only this:

Given that the two budgets currently in serious play—Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) and Barack Obama's—envision a government spending $1 trillion and $2 trillion more in 2021, respectively, than we are currently spending, budgetary gridlock may not be the worst thing that can happen. But it reveals not simply some sort of ideological stand-off but absolute incompetence, of the kind that even the most anti-government libertarian doesn't want to believe. --Gillespie/Reason

Ryan's may be "the Path to Prosperity," but it takes one helluva long time to turn off the spend-spigot, no?

Lots more good stuff at the link!
