Quote of the Day: Alternate Reality Addition

Regarding the proposal to freeze federal pay increases:

"By focusing exclusively on federal employees, the administration runs the risk of reinforcing the myth, pushed by some for politically convenient but cynical reasons, that America suffers from a federal government comprised of unproductive and overpaid civil servants. Nothing could be further from the truth," Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., said in a written statement, calling the pitch a "piecemeal approach."

You've got to be kidding me, right?

For maybe the second time in two years I'm actually in agreement with the President, although I hope he realizes that this one little change can only be the beginning if he wants to actually have an impact on the deficit the country faces.
