Republicans Favor Massive Future Tax Increases

"Oh Lovey Dear, would you please postpone the consequences of my fiscal irresponsibility until many years from now?":

Before approving the bill, Republicans rejected by a 55-44 vote an amendment by Max Baucus, D-Montana, to mandate a Treasury study on the economic consequences of foreigners holding an increasing portion of the U.S. debt.

I don't mean to dishonor the memory of Thurston Howell III. In fact, I'm feeling pretty nostalgic for the days of the Country Club Republican.
