    Absolutely shocking that a politician from the opposing political party would suggest such a thing. Shocking, I say!

Whether there is actually verifiable truth to it or not, if it makes the other side look like they are responsible for a negative outcome, it will be suggested.

    I realize there are a lot of egos and reputations at stake - but with a bear market and possible recession on the horizon I wouldnt want to spend a ton of money on a new office right now either - regardless of the other reasons..
