Democrats came out fighting today in response to President Bush’s charges that they have “wasted time investigating” and “have never seen a problem they couldn’t solve by raising taxes.” The President also expressed exasperation over the Democrat tendency to link every conversation to the war in Iraq.
“Those are ridiculous and unfair charges,” noted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ranged). “I call upon my colleagues in the House to investigate the President’s motives behind making these allegations.” Ms. Pelosi also noted that “Americans are just not aware of the fine work we’re doing in the 110th Congress. Today I am proposing a three trillion dollar ($3,000,000,000,000) program to educate taxpayers. The additional expense will be paid through an excise tax on air.” Ms. Pelosi also questioned President Bush’s track record this year. “If he didn’t spend so much time killing babies in Iraq, we wouldn’t be here today.”
