McCain: Stimulus Plan is "Generational Theft".

It's simply extraordinary to listen to McCain - of all bloody people - talk of "generational theft".

This is the man who backed both the Iraq war and Bush's tax cuts whilst running to be president, what is that if not "generational theft?" Bush inherited a massive surplus and left office with an enormous deficit which was caused by two things; his tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wars which Republicans were keen to support but not, apparently, keen to pay for.

The cost of that they passed down the line to be paid for by their children and their grandchildren. So it's a bit bloody rich to listen to McCain complain here about "generational theft". The hypocrisy that he is indulging in here is quite breathtaking.
