    dems and debt, sorta like

    love and marriage
    horse and carriage
    salt and pepper
    ham and cheese
    the birds and the bees
    the flowers and the trees, I'm about to break out in song any minute.

    No debt to big, no taxes too high, no gov't too large, no union too influential for a democrat.
