Clearly, these kids are just smart asses

In listening to the coverage of health care reform and reading today's NYT, I've been trying to figure out how to articulate a point. Of course, the wunderkinds beat me to it: what if it required a filibuster-proof super-majority and a CBO report attesting to its deficit neutrality to escalate involvement in Afghanistan?

All I've listened to today is hand-wringing lamentations of the dire effect on our national debt of health care reform and those oh-so-scary-the-baby-boomers-are-coming-entitlement programs, as though our two wars are paid for out of some special endowment set up specifically for the purpose.

I guess the Pentagon has the lock box Gore wanted for Social Security.
