    Finally, a voice of reason on this matter. Thank you Alan Viard for pointing out the fallacy of the “Congress can’t be trusted to cut expenses under any circumstances” mentality. This ridiculous excuse sounds oh-so appealing at first blush, until you realize it only leaves you with one option to close the deficit–which is raise taxes! If ever there were a case of conservative demagoguery painting itself into a corner, this is surely it.
