No, Mister President, You Can't Have $63 Billion Dollars To Give To Your Eurotrash Friends

It's an ill wind that blows no good and while I thought Richard Mourdock's Senate bid was a mistake and refused to endorse his bid to unseat Dick Lugar he did deprive the International Monetary Fund of its chief supporter in the Senate. The head IMF honcho in the House was Barney Frank who is also gone. Christine LaGarde, the fund’s managing director was so counting on the $63 billion that Obama had promised.
President Obama asked both the Senate and House appropriation committees last month to include the IMF aid in the 2014 budget, but both rejected the idea.
