Pay-go, no-go

You knew this was going to happen. Just like President Obama’s fantasy-land budget freeze, the new congressional pay-as-you-go law is more loophole-ridden than an Olympic volleyball net.

Via The Hill (h/t Steve Bartin):

The ink is barely dry on the pay-as-you-go law, and Democrats are seeking to bypass it to enact parts of their job-creation agenda.

Democratic leaders said extensions of unemployment insurance and COBRA healthcare benefits should be emergency spending that isn’t subject to the pay-as-you-go statute, which requires new non-discretionary spending to be offset with spending cuts or tax increases.

Remember: They never let a manufactured “emergency” go to waste. The age of Obama is an age of routine circumvention in the name of perpetual crisis.
