On talk radio, I have heard Republicans complain that they never voted for the big spenders, so they shouldn't have to pay higher taxes. Let me quote my pal Joseph Bottum, who, writing for USA Today on Republicans who don't want to raise the debt ceiling, observed, "You've heard that whine before; on the playground, or in a squabble after school. It's the cry of a child who thinks it's just not fair he has to clean up someone else's mess."
Like it or not, it is America's debt -- and the day will come when Americans have to face the consequences and pay for it.
