"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

I suppose if you were to apply that like a blanket over everything, you're bound to have problems with it. Thankfully this complex world we live in isn't computable by simple math. ;)
