13. Bipartisan And Republican Is An Oxymoron

And Graham would force the country into default late this winter for something that is several years away? He can't sell that proposition because it has no merit. He is fighting the wrong fight at the wrong time over the wrong issue. The appropriation bills set spending levels so that is where the good fight should be waged. Just think what would happen if you or I would go into the store and put a 55 inch flat screen on the credit card, walk out the door with the TV then refuse to pay the credit card bill when it arrived. The courts would simply rip the amount of the credit card bill from your checking account or put a lien on your property and put it up for auction. The latter is what Graham is proposing and he thinks he can sell that?
