What are you telling your kids Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Reid, Mr. Obama?

Full column here.

Dear Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Reid and Mr. President:

My kids have a few questions.  They’ve heard that thanks to federal spending creating huge national debt, looking out a few years, each of them personally owes about $180,000 plus interest.   We have five kids so combined they are already under water more than  $1 million.  Our youngest is three.  Her indebtedness will exceed that of her older siblings. 

Their first question is: how are we going to pay off this debt? Their second question is:  how did we get so far in debt?

We have told them the truth.  It’s kind of a tradition in our family.  We told them President Bush allowed the federal government to grow 60% on his watch with a lot of controversial spending. And, of course, you folks in Congress had a lot to do with that too.  We told them so far, President Obama has outdone Mr. Bush by a factor of three.  This means Mr. Obama has spent three times as much as Mr. Bush in 1/8th the time.  And, of course, you folks in Congress had a lot to do with that too.
