Way To Go Zell!

The Democratic Senator Zell Miller issued a press release yesterday that’s about the most insightful thing that’s been said about maintaining the current good finances of the United States. Here’s a relevant quotation:

"It [The Bush Tax Cut] was and is a responsible tax cut. If anything, it should have been larger and kicked in sooner. The tax cut does not get into the Medicare and Social Security trust funds, as some protest. What would eat into them is hog-wild spending on other items. That’s where a problem could arise. Let’s pass the defense and education appropriations bills as well as the $300 million prescription drug benefit as soon as possible, and then let’s go on a fast the likes of which have not been seen since [Gandhi]."

Right on…
