    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America ’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

    Americans deserve better...I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit."

    Finally, a frank and honest politician.

    Not really. As I recall, that quote was from one Sen. Barrack Hussein Obama.

    JamesL's quote, pretty close, goes back to the 1940s.
