A Groundbreaking Development That Will Save Our Economy



June 03, 2009 – Comments (4)

From the WSJ...

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke Wednesday urged lawmakers to commit to reducing the nearly $2 trillion budget deficit, warning that the government can't borrow "indefinitely" to meet the growing demand on its resources. Lawmakers minds were blown and fell into stunned silence save for Barney Frank who could be heard stammering "But...but...that's the only play in our playbook." The country seemed to be headed for its darkest hour until Daphne Newberg, a recently arrived intern from California, offered to let Congress borrow her father's credit card and all in attendance agreed this was a reasonable and bipartisan solution.

So, I made some of that up. But can you tell where the real article ends and the satire begins?

that would scare people really bad.  Everyone knows we are out of money now.  How long have we been in deficit now a 100 years???  Seems that way.

I think Barney Frank slobbers more than stammers. I'd like to see what was wrong with the guy he beat in his primary debate years ago.
