Media and political dictionary

Todays word is bipartisan.

bipartisan (adj.) 1Republican politicians who acquiesce to Democratic plans to increase the size and scope of government.   2Plans to expand the size of the government which are supported by both big-government statist Democrats and big-government statist Republicans.

As in,
A bipartisan pair of senators has urged President Obama’s debt commission to consider raising the gas tax to pay for infrastructure projects.

Sens. Tom Carper (D-Del.) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio) have written to the chairmen of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform advocating for a 25-cent per gallon tax increase.

(Anyone think that the eventual debt commission recommendations won't be heavy on tax increases and light on spending cuts? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone? Yeah, me neither...)
