Someone call the fire department. Sean Duffy’s hair is all ablaze.
Newbie congressman and purported lumberjack Sean Duffy took to the floor of the House last week to warn everyone that without a balanced budget amendment zombie locusts would eat the next generation of Americans. Yikes!
Hold your horses Sean! We’ve got a fire extinguisher on hand!
Long time Washington observer and economic policy wonk Bruce Bartlett says that a balanced budget amendment as proposed by House Repubs is, to use his technical, jargonesque language, ……… nuts. Whew! That was a close one!
Duffy’s been in Washington ten months. Bartlett’s experience dates back 35 years, having held policy advisor positions in the administrations of both Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush. Hmmmmm.
Maybe Duffy should go back to lumberjackin’ ? Wait…that’s probably not such a good idea either.
