    But seriously, how large is the press staff for the Senate Indian Affairs Committee? That last line makes it seem like every senate Democrat is off to Hawaii.

    Oh, ok. :)

    I did a little more looking around, and it looks like only one Senator is scheduled to go, but he is taking his whole staff along. At about $1100 per round trip ticket plus a week's hotel stay, it won't be cheap no matter how many people go.

    ...and if this trip didn't happen the budget would magically be balanced. Yay!

    This plus the fact that the Republicans were the ones pushing hardcore for the debt ceiling being raised with stipulations that directly led to the credit rating being downgraded. Meh.

    No, asswipe. When the country is supposedly broke and you are spending other people's money, maybe you should be a little more stingy with it. No you're right, congressmen should do whatever they want on our dime, since it's all so small in the grand scheme of the whole economy. What's a few hundred thousand dollars for an unnecessary trip?

    So are you saying that raising the debt ceiling with no stipulations would have thrilled the rating agencies? :huh: I never thought that credit rating agencies hated attempts to reduce debt.

    At least it will be cheap next to Obama's $2B a day junket to India.

    That's a brilliant argument, perfectly justifies this trip. Very logical, keep at it. Make sure you run your household the same way.

    You're a fucking dope if you think this even effects the economy. Feel free to push this Fox bullshit hit piece like it's some kind of gospel. You're a dolt.
