Alan Simpson: Republicans Allowing 'Pettiness to Overcome Patriotism' In Deficit Negotiations

Former GOP Senator Alan Simpson had strong words for lawmakers Tuesday over their failure to reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling and lowering the deficit.

"The American people are disgusted at both parties," the Republican co-chair of President Barack Obama's fiscal commission told ABC News.

...

Simpson saved some of his harshest criticisms for Republicans, saying their stance on revenues is baffling.

"The stuff that’s going on in my party, where the -– pettiness overcomes the patriotism -– it’s just disgusting to me," he told ABC News. "Reagan raised taxes. We’ve never had less revenue to run this country since the Korean war."

I really think it should be mandatory that all elected officials have completed at least Intermediate Macro and Micro economics...And they should be tested on the material each 6 months. If they fail they retake the courses....


India, gun buyback and steamroll.

If the test is administered by the federal government, then the questions will come from a list of questions given to officials in advance with the correct (expected) answers. If you fail, you take it again the next day until you pass. It will prove nothing.

Question:

Why are the Democrats against the Balanced Budget Amendment?

Is there something wrong with having a balanced budget?

because then they can't fund entitlements?
