Bunning wants to pay bills, Dems still want to use credit

Democrats point out that Bunning voted against Pay-Go but used it as his excuse to block legislation.  He Republicans thought he was taking a stand to keep Congress at it’s word.  Here I was just giving Pelosi and Reid a hard time for flip-flops on reconciliation.   Seems that Politician and Hypocrisy are synonymous.  writes:
