This blog used to be about debt. Now it's about a few more things. But really, it all comes back to debt. Trust me.

One Down, 5 to go

Day 1 of the first 100 hours is over, and the Dems managed to pass some of the 9/11 commission recommendations. Only four more days before our interest rates go down. But let's preview the 9/11 bill and see if it needed to be watered down to signify nothing.

What they wanted:

All of the 9/11 recommendations.

What they passed:

Half of them.

Oh well. They must have been going for the easy wins, which is what the first 100 hours theme is all about. When you start a job, you need to have quick successes to establish credibility.

On to the minimum wage!
