Yay! The government just raised the national debt limit to $8.965 trillion!

That means they can borrow another $781 billion to fund things like the Iraq war and all the other pork and idiotic programs floating around these days… all without raising taxes! Isn’t government spending great?

It’s worth noting that today’s debt limit increase is the fourth of Bush’s presidency– during his two terms the debt has climbed over three trillion dollars. Pretty soon we’ll be talking about some real money…
