Witness the Democrats’ Christmas wish-list:
WASHINGTON — After being out of power for 12 years, Democrats will take control of Congress next month with a wish list of new programs, including more money for college student aid, the No Child Left Behind schools initiative and Medicare prescription drug benefits — plus tax relief for middle-income Americans.
But there’s a hitch: The Democrats also have promised to restore fiscal responsibility and not increase the federal deficit.
So how will liberals in Congress make this happen? I think you know the answer.
