Straightforward Question. Acting Budget Director Unprepared. by The Elephant's Child

You don’t want to tackle Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), ranking member of the Budget Committee, if you don’t have your numbers on the tip of your tongue. It was a fairly major number that Senator Sessions asked for from Acting Budget Director Jeff Ziets. How much does this budget raise the deficit? When you get used to putting numbers in their most pleasing and engaging form, in order to confuse the people about what you are doing, you can be unprepared for plain old straight talk. Mr. Ziets was unprepared, and embarrassingly condescending.

The National Debt is rapidly approaching $17 Trillion. Could we please manage to take it seriously, Mr. Ziets?
