No matter what you think of Senator Jim Bunning, he has a valid point. The Senate was getting ready to pass one of those "catch all" bills they specialize in to put money in the pockets of their favorite supporters. The price tag for this bill was $10 Billion.
Bunning's point was that the Senate should find some way to pay for this bill instead of simply borrowing more money and increasing the federal government's debt. That sure makes sense to me!!
However, the other 99 senators did not see it that way, and hounded and berated Bunning until he gave up his hold on the bill.
So the vital question for the future of the United States is simply this, "If not now, then when?".
