Issue of the Day: Who's the Big Spender?

I just have to share this from Eric Alterman's blog (Altercation):

"And Mr. Nobel Nice Guy, Jonathan Cohn, who notes,

"'Bush's campaign proposals would produce $3 trillion in new debt ($2 trillion of it from social security privatization) even as he postures as a fiscal conservative.

"'Kerry's proposals, including his big health plan, would add just $1 trillion and probably a lot less since Kerry -- unlike Bush -- says he'll scale back plans as necessary if that's what it takes to get the deficit under control. Naturally, Russert and the rest of the media have decided that Bush and Kerry are equally unserious/dishonest when it comes to budget politics.'"
