WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats and Republicans clashed over deficits and tax cuts Thursday as Congress moved toward sending President Bush an $800 billion boost in the government's debt limit. The bill would increase the debt ceiling from its current $7.38 trillion, marking the third massive increase since Bush took office in 2001. The government reached the cap last month, paying its bills since with cash from a civil service retirement account, which it plans to repay.--CNN

I'm confused, aren't the Republicans supposed to be the tightwads, and the Democrats the spendthrifts? What happened? Oh yeah, we became a monarchy. Who needs fiscal responsibilty, the King's retinue is much more important, gotta keep up appearances. Guess how the vote is going? Yep, red vs. blue all down the line. It's going to be a long four years.
