Nicholas Kristof in today’s Herald Tribune: “RENT OUT CONGRESS If the debt ceiling isn’t raised, we could also auction members of Congress for day jobs: Are you a financier who wants someone to flip burgers (steaks?) at your child’s birthday party? Why, here’s Eric Cantor! Many members of Congress already work on behalf of tycoons, and this way the revenue would flow to the Treasury.”
A brilliant idea: members of congress as expensive lap dancers in order to reduce debt.
