Has Senator Bunning drifted into territory that indicates a serious health concern?” — editorial, The Louisville Courier-Journal, October 14, 2004¹
    That's a joke. The "Cowardly" Journal, as it's affectionately known around here, has NEVER had a kind word to say about Bunning or any other Republican.

    Their attempt to smear Bunning obviously did not work. Thankfully, most of the people in the Commonwealth have common sense and don't agree with the C-J.

    So basically we borrowed more money from China to continue paying jobless benefits.

    What would we do without the Chinese?

    The better question is: what would they do without US (pun intended)? If we didn't buy all their low skilled labor intensive products, they would not be holding such an amount of dollars in which they are compelled to purchase treasuries.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Deficit spending is very important during periods of high unemployment.

    Democrats just passed pay go. This must be done following their new rules of pay go. That is what Bunning is saying.

    I'm really not interested in the partisan bickering. Care to address my comment?

    Until the Liberal/Communists learn that they have to reduce spending and cut taxes the hole is only going to get deeper. It is stupid to think as Biden does, because there is no way you can spend your way out of debt. It has never happen in the history of man.
    When was the last time a Republican/Conservative reduced the deficit?
