IS KENTUCKY'S BUNNING A HERO OR VILLAIN?

I say hero because he is proving both the Republicans and Democrats are liars when it comes to the budget deficit. All Bunning is asking for is that the extension of unemployment benefits be paid for from the money already allocated in the stimulus bill. Do we remember pay as we go?

The truth of the matter is, the Republicans and Democrats support going into further deficit spending to cover these benefits. Did you hear me? - The Republicans too -

Just use the stimulus money and be done with it - but no - deficit spending is so much easier.

I say hero also, whether the concept of the Federal Government paying anyone out of public funds rather than the funds provided through the unemployment insurance fund is valid,
the government should not go into debt.
