1348, What was Hastert a jerk about?

Sounds to me as if he was telling the truth.

When will government "sacrifice" something? Sure, they've cut tax rates but they haven't cut spending and revenue is growing.

Fiscal responsibility also entails a limit on spending, which is something McCain nor Hastert seem to be willing to support. Give the money back to the people you gave it to.
