I sincerely wish I could be bipartisan on this. I wish I could write a column saying that blame lies on both sides. But I can't. The debt itself is bipartisan, built up over many years (although the republicans have a clear edge in adding to it). But the simple responsibility to pay the debt already incurred is currently only being taken by the Democrats. Today's Republican party in America is so extreme, so doctrinaire and so reckless they stand alone on this question.
