The bad news? It’s precisely this cake-and-eat-it fickleness that’s led Congress to put off dealing with Medicare and Social Security. The good news? ObamaCare’s a magical mystery miracle program that’s somehow going to achieve all three of these things simultaneously. Through Hopenchange all feats are possible, my friends.

The saddest realization is that the stupidity is bipartisan. Note the Republican numbers on services and the Democratic numbers on taxes.

While you mull, enjoy the new ad from the DNC blaming Republicans for not “fixing” the economy by supporting a bill that helped quadruple the deficit this year while doing jack to halt growing unemployment. Luckily, it’s all Bush’s fault. All of it.
