One has to love Matt’s captions for his images and links, and I guess the tea party folks weren’t explicit enough for somebody as mentally bankrupt as an international public servant that blames TurboTax for his inability to pay his taxes.
Allow me to spell it out.
STOP SPENDING MONEY MEANS STOP BORROWING!
Our debt is now the second greatest threat to the security of the nation after Barack Obama’s hidden past (can you say blackmail?)
We have been telling these ass-clowns since before Bush bailed out his buddies in the financial sector in September 2008…

(Reuters) – Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Wednesday that Congress will allow the country to borrow more by agreeing to increase the $14.3 trillion debt limit.
“Congress will pass an increase in the debt limit,” Geithner told PBS Newshour.
Republicans have said they are unwilling to raise the debt ceiling without some reforms to the government spending.
Geithner said there were some lawmakers who want to take debt ceiling negotiations “to the brink” and warned that the United States could not take that risk.
“So you want Congress to move as quickly as possible to raise that, and of course, they recognize that they have to do that,” he said.
Treasury has forecast that the limit will be reached by May 16. After that point, Treasury can take emergency measures to avoid hitting the debt ceiling. But those actions will only give the United States about a two-month window before Treasury is unable to issue debt to fund government operations.
