And drawing a parallel towards the american people cutting them in half.

No more credit for you, son.

People would get that.

Most RINO's (Republicans In Name Only) seem to only care that Kerry might raise their taxes. Otherwise they really are mostly Dems (according to Michael Moore's article based on an informal survey on issues at the RNC). But mostly they feared tax hikes. So ask them how they'd feel about someone running up their credit cards without their permission. That's about what has happened.

Other good parallel would be illustrating Repo's as being prone to dine n dash. Same deal. Fiscal responsibility my foot.
