Plus ça change....
Three quotes, the first two on why we should deficit spend instead of following fiscally conservative paygo rules.
John Boehner: "Tax relief pays for itself."
George Bush: "Preventing a tax increase in one area should not be an excuse for raising taxes in other areas.... Congress should eliminate the tax increases in the bill and send the AMT relief to my desk as soon as possible. That's what the American taxpayer expects."
Mark Twain: "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it."
