Markey On The Budget: ‘It’s Really Not Math, It’s Just Arithmetic’

Last night, Democratic Rep. Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez had their second debate in the race to fill John Kerry’s vacant senate seat in Massachusetts.  Gomez took a swipe at Democrats concerning their failure to address our fiscal problems in Washington.  Markey responded by saying, “it’s not really math, it’s just arithmetic.’

Yep, it’s idiotic, humorous, and kind of sad.  Yet, after doing nothing in Washington for nearly four decades, can you really blame Markey for this statement?
