"But our current budget policies are built not on honest coherence but on incoherence or, even worse, a dishonest coherence.

Yet their actions bear no relationship to their words, and labels such as "conservative" have no connection to their policies. Our federal purse strings are in the hands of fiscal radicals."
-E.J. Dionne Jr.
