Murkowski Thumbs Nose at Leadership
MEEP! MEEP! MEEP!
We interrupt Alaska to bring you this special Sanity Report.
Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski does not – we repeat – does NOT think that the debt ceiling should be used as leverage for spending cuts. Her sanity runs counter to Republican leadership in the Senate who have no problem creating an economic hostage situation and jeopardizing the US economy if they don’t get their way. Murkowski says that some of her Republican colleagues won’t say it “out loud,” but they agree with her.
This means that both of Alaska’s Senators believe that we should, in fact, pay our bills.
I’ll give you a moment to sit with that, before I ruin your warm fuzzy glow.
I would like nothing more than to report that our entire congressional delegation feels the same way, but alas. Don Young, the “Congressman for All Alaska” has decided that it’s OK to dangle the US economy out the window of the tall tower and drop it if his party doesn’t get its way.
