Wow. What A Win!

From CNS News:

The bill to increase the federal debt limit that has been put before Congress today would increase that limit by up to $2.4 trillion, which would be the largest increase in the debt limit in U.S. history by a margin of half a trillion dollars, according to records published by the Government Accountability Office and the Congressional Research Service.

Up until now, the largest increase in the debt limit was the $1.9 trillion increase passed by Congress and signed by President Obama on Feb. 12, 2010. That law increased the debt limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion.

So not only did we just increase the debt limit, we did it by a whole lot. Boehner not only gave Obama and the Democrats exactly what they wanted, he did it by a record margin. Wow, sounds like a clear victory to me.

Can we please have an election, already? There seem to be more clowns that need to be swept out of office.
