McCain blasts "bizarro" Tea Party debt limit demands

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Fri Jul 29, 2011 1:03 pm

Republican Sen. John McCain today railed against conservatives who stand in opposition to House Speaker John Boehner's plan to raise the debt ceiling and reduce the deficit. He called their insistence on passing a balanced budget amendment "worse than foolish" and "bizarro."

Passing an amendment to the Constitution requiring a balanced federal budget is simply not possible with a Democratic majority in the Senate, McCain said, and to suggest otherwise is doing a disservice to voters.

"That is not fair to the American people to hold out and say we won't agree to raising the debt limit until we pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution," McCain said on the Senate floor today. "It's unfair, it's bizzaro. And maybe some people have only been in this body for six or seven months or so really believe that."
