Treasury Dept. Robs Peter To Pay Paul

This is a symptamatic story of what is wrong in Washington. The government has maxed out the national credit card at $8.2 trillion. The Treasury Dept is starting to take money from the civil service pension fund to cover the bills until Congress caves in and raises the debt limit again. How about cutting spending guys? Did you ever think about that? How about reducing the size of the government? This is exactly why we don't need any more "go along get along" Republicans elected. And God forbid President Bush lead the way and start vetoing some bloated spending bills.
