Congressman Nathan Deal was to appear on Fox News today. Deal, who is leaving Congress to run for Governor of Georgia, is taking a parting shot at GOP leadership. The GOP and Nathan Deal never voted for a balanced budget. That is, while Deal was a Congressman, he voted to raise spending and lower revenue. Increased spending and lowered revenue doesn’t make fiscal sense. Or as the GOP should say, it ain’t Conservative.

Deal, who’s served three decades in Congress, is wanting to cut the salaries of Congressmen that don’t balance a budget.

Hell of an idea, three decades late.

So let’s go along with his logic. If the budget isn’t balanced next year, cut health care and retirement benefits for ex-Congressman. Including Mr. Done Deal and every future Congressional retiree.
